Bring Back Bill Clinton
It's the economy, stupid!
When Clinton was in office we had hope. He presided over a fabulous economic period in American history. Before there were the disastrous Bush policies that brought us the catastrophe of 2008, before we had new stimulus packages every other week that hinders more than it helps, we had a President that was in touch with the American people. We had a good economy, we had new products people wanted to buy, people had money to buy the new products on the market, and we had new jobs, millions and millions of them.
We should change the twenty-second amendment ruling of only a two term President. You should be able to only have two consecutive terms as a President, then after someone else is in office for at least one term I believe you should be able to run again.
Bill Clinton accomplished many things while in office. During his presidency there were more than 22 million jobs created, the most ever under a single administration. Because of his economic and strategic planning we got to see a record 115 months of economic expansion. We had the lowest unemployment rate that we had in over 30 years; the unemployment rate was at a 4.0%. Clinton expanded financial aid for students going to college; he thought that educating young Americans was a good thing! This country had a very low crime rate, the overall crime rate declined for 8 consecutive years. Clinton signed the Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993; giving 20 million Americans unpaid leave to care for a newborn child or sick family member. Clinton gave us higher incomes across the board; the bottom 20 percent saw the largest income growth at 16.3 percent. Clinton paid off $363 billion of the national debt, thanks to the lowest government spending in over 30 years.
Love him or hate him he was a good President. You can argue that point with me all that you want to. But I guarantee that every American benefited from more than one of Clinton’s accomplishments that I have listed above.
At the very least if we did not amend the twenty-second amendment, then the Democrat’s should be at least smart enough to make him the Secretary of the Treasury. The kind of charisma and communication skills possessed by Clinton alone could bring us back from the brink of despair.
