Clinton / Bush

I'm trying to get all this political stuff straightened out in my head. Right now, we have one guy saying one thing, then the other guy says something else. Who to believe? Let me see have I got this straight?

Clinton awards Halliburton no-bid contract in Yugoslavia - good
...Bush awards Halliburton no-bid contract in Iraq - bad...

Clinton spends 77 billion on war in Serbia - good
...Bush spends 87 billion in Iraq - bad...

Clinton imposes regime change in Serbia - good
...Bush imposes regime change in Iraq - bad...

Clinton bombs Christian Serbs on behalf of Muslim Albanian terrorists - good
...Bush liberates 25 million from a genocidal dictator - bad...

Clinton bombs Chinese embassy - good
...Bush bombs terrorist camps - bad...

Clinton commits felonies while in office - good
...Bush lands on aircraft carrier in jumpsuit - bad...

No mass graves found in Serbia - good
...No WMD found Iraq - bad...

Stock market crashes in 2000 under Clinton - good
...Economy on upswing under Bush - bad...

Clinton refuses to take custody of Bin Laden - good
..World Trade Centers fall under Bush - bad...

Clinton says Saddam has nukes - good
...Bush says Saddam has nukes - bad...

Clinton calls for regime change in Iraq - good
...Bush imposes regime change in Iraq - bad...

Terrorist training in Afghanistan under Clinton - good
..Bush destroys training camps in Afghanistan - bad...

Milosevic not yet convicted - good
...Saddam turned over for trial - bad...

Ahh, it's so confusing!

Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John Kerry are wealthy men. Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas. Kerry owns 4 mansions, all worth several million dollars. (His ski resort home in Idaho is an old barn brought over from Europe in pieces. Not your average A-frame).

Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year; Kerry paid $90,000. Does that sound right? The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has figured out a way to avoid paying his own.

interesting. but what about the places where bush does fall short? budget favorable under clinton: is this bad? 8.3trillion debt under bush: this MUST be GREAT?

wire-tapping? i think clinton could have avoided a lot of the bad hype anyway - just take the bush approach - claim that he "saw it on TV" -- then shoot the lawyers -- then stamp it all "classified". Seriously confusing stuff.
