what r u views on bill clinton , bush and obama?..in comparative mode whom do u think was best as president?..
Out of those 3, Clinton. Bush seemed a bit trigger happy, and Obama is a bit hard to judge at the moment. It's easier to look back and judge a president after he/she's been in office, not during.
They're very similar in my opinion. They have different rhetorical styles and dispositions. Bush and Obama have very different characters. But in terms of actual policy they're almost identical. Each can be understood as a logical continuation of the other.
Consider Obama's foreign policy for example which is if anything an escalation of Bush.
Is it possible to choose "None?" However, if a choice had to be made then probably Clinton. Bush was over his head. Obama is obviously out of his league especially when dealing with hardened heads of state, and he doesn't understand that his utopian ideology won't happen in one or two administrations.
This is like comparing: a 128 billion surplus, 600 billion in deficit reduction, economic growth, a fairly stable international arena through diplomacy, economic and humanitarian aid, military action through international collaboration and respect in the international community WITH a 490 billion deficit, a 5.7 trillion national debt, a nonsensical war, the privatization of the military, the dismantling of the Federal Government (and its consequences, Katrina for instance), the worst depression (sorry, a "recession")since the 1930's, loss of respect and support in the international community, growth of foreign oil dependency, lack of a comprehensive alternative energy policy, what else?...
...and then, comparing all that with a presidency "on progress" or "under construction". (I agree with Origin: "Obama is a bit hard to judge at the moment. It's easier to look back and judge a president after he/she's been in office, not during."
After all this, mmmm... I guess is too close to call.
