Look on the Bright Side

The purpose of this thread is to establish some truth... lately I've been seeing more and more accusations of fault against the various Presidents, and so rather than attempt to argue all the points, I'm starting a thread.

The idea here is that we try to see how balanced or "nonpartisan" everyone really is. If you're a democrat/liberal/left-leaning individual, your job is to find things Bush has done right, and pat him on the back for it; or, if you're intent on being negative, find things that are wrong in America, that aren't Bush's fault. It's not that tough a job, really, but then again I don't lean left.


On the other side, republicans/conservatives/right-leaning individuals need to find things that either Clinton did well. Maybe give him props for taking action in Yugoslavia, or perhaps concede that the Monica Lewinsky thing really wasn't THAT big of a deal (I'm conservative-ish, so those are my points for the time being).



Sound fair? Give it a shot.

I'm a moderate, so I guess I can do both

Pro Bush

Tax cuts have revamped the economy. I don't know what else to say has caused the spike in the Dow. I mean, it was in the crapper after 9/11. Its almost at 12,000 now. His presidency; his accomplishment.

No terrorist attacks in US soil.

Anti Bush
Western Europe and the Middle East dislike us. Granted, a lot of those countries disliked the US before Bush, but he didn't really help matters.

Iraq. Nuff said.

No Bin Laden.

Stem cells. This bothers me. While I have moral qualms about cloning a human, I don't have them over cloning organs and such. Should be funded.

When compared to each other:

Bush, fairly classy.

Clinton, fairly conservative.

I think this thread is kinda pointless, there are good and bad things about each party. No real need to tate them...

That's exactly the point of this thread... except that no one ever feels compelled to say anything in the least bit positive about "the other side." This isn't a school assignment, it's more of a "leave your guns at the door" discussion thread... I've had enough down-talking other parties for the time being.
