Bill Clinton vs. GW Bush
I was thinking of doing a detailed comparison of Clinton vs Bush (that's Bill and GW) since people want to put the recession on Bush. He literally was packing up when it hit. But, to do an accurate comparison, I'd have to go all the way back through Reagan and Bush (that's Sr.) to get across that Clinton LITERALLY did nothing and benefited from all of the Reagan policies finally coming into full effect. Clinton even set the stage for economic destruction by secretly signing NAFTA, which didn't really kick into gear until the 2nd term of Bush (IRONY).

I blame the main stream media for making people have short attention span.
One thing I will say in the comparison of Bill Cliton vs George Bush: Much of the economic success that Clinton enjoyed, and this cannot be said loud enough, nor repeated loud enough, was due to him presiding over the longest ever peace time, in the history of the country. Military use AND EXPENSES, were at the lowest, by dollar comparison, in modern presidents, (post 1913).
