Why in gods name would you think that? Bill Clinton should be heckled and chastized everytime he steps out into public. He is a completely beholden to Wall Street. Nafta and the repeal of glass stegal were all done while his administration was in office and they both are some of the reasons why we find ourselves in this condition today. These things that I mentioned are really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the crimes comitted by his administration. Try again.....

Even though there are over 300,000 Bloomberg Terminals installed across the finance industry, Ponzi schemes, insider trading, money laundering and various other frauds seem to continue as the easiest paths to profits.

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act enabled a pathway for underwriters to take over the democratic process. Who can unravel this entanglement without crashing the economy?

Very amusing post ... I knew we had trolls in here but wasn't aware that we also had comedians. Bill Clinton ... what a joke.

He balanced the budget and created a surplus. He fixed the economic problems, jobs were created, things got better for a lot of low income and middle class people.

Neoliberal magic trick. That was the short influx of wealth generated when capital was released by deregulation and free trade. It took longer for the slow bleed on jobs and aggregate demand to kick in.

What do you think would help our current situation?

Bring marginal tax rates back to Eisenhower levels, close corporate loopholes, invest in the country again - namely grand projects to replace our aging infrastructure and solve the energy problem (there are many green options, shovel-ready).

Renegotiate all trade agreements so as not to constitute unilateral disarmament, implement intelligent tarrifs that protect workers and the environment without punishing good trading partners.

Re-regulate the financial sector.

Bill Clinton ... three times in The White House.

Are you using any of that crystal meth that is going around Zuccotti Park?

Clinton started the housing mess and it kept getting worse year after year until everything collapsed.

Read this ....

Don't forget to download the link to the 20 page government document from 1994 and read it. That document lays out the foundations for the federal government's role in creating the mess.

3 times? he only had 2 terms. Were you referring to the times he had Monica in the Oval Office? i thought it was more like 9. And actually it was the Republican Congress, Newt Gingrich, and the Contract with America that balanced the budget, or pretended too, Clinton was forced to go along with the plan. The country can't handle Herman Cain hitting on a woman, how are they going to tolerate a serial philanderer and possible rapist again?
