Bush Administration vs Clinton Administration

During the administration of William Jefferson Clinton, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well being than at any time in its history. He was the first Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to win a second term. He could point to the lowest unemployment rate in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, the highest home ownership in the country's history, dropping crime rates in many places, and reduced welfare rolls. He proposed the first balanced budget in decades and achieved a budget surplus. As part of a plan to celebrate the millennium in 2000, Clinton called for a great national initiative to end racial discrimination. [2]

* Outed an undercover CIA operative
* Lied to Congress and the American people to get into a war
* Disregarded intelligence estimates, and instead manufactured its own intelligence to support political goals
* Exerted political pressure to hide facts about climate change
* Fired U.S. Attorneys who wouldn't prosecute bogus vote fraud charges against Democrats, or who would prosecute vote fraud charges against Republicans[3]
* Tried to create a fourth branch of government, answerable to no one
* Defied Congressional subpoenas
* Destroyed documents that cannot, by law, be destroyed
* Violated its own rules on document declassification
* Authorized torture--or, as they like to call being bitten by dogs, being nearly drowned, and being sodomized and forced into homosexual acts, "aggressive interrogation"--in violation of both the U.S. Constitution and the Geneva Conventions.
