I haven't forgived him and am still pissed about it. I'm not thrilled about a possible Obama presidency. But I'm more negative about a possible Clinton II.
I agree with you about showing more "meat." However, I truly wish Clinton had been more high-profile fighting while senator as well. east things like SCHIP are fine, but she never spoke about the rape this adminstration allowed the corporations to do. It stands to reason, though, because they did the same thing when her husband was in the WH, albeit to a lesser degree.
I would be both happy (and disappointed) with either Obama or Clinton winning the nom. And I will support strongly EITHER of them should they be our standard-bearer.
Not even close. He wouldn't know the real problems with the Latin community it it smacked him in the face.
You were a civil rights activist. Do you speak for black people? No. as well you shouldn't. Yet, everyone it seems can speak with abandon about the latino community even when they're not latino and don't know what the fuck they are taling about.
I never said that people should make things permament. BUt isn't that what Medicare is, or should be?
you make no sense. Bush has accomplished a SHITLOAD in seven years. He has given the corporations everything they have wanted. And that wouldn't have been possible but for an ineffective prior administration. Clinton's presidency, in retrospect, was an utter failure. He was like a GHW Bush second term.
most people agree that is will take many many years to undo Bush, correct?
it took Bush onlly TWO years to undo everything Clinton did. the only permament thing Clinton accomplished was his piece of shit corporate giveaway called NAFTA.
If Bill was so special, Bush would not have accomplished so much in so little time. Fuck, we haven't even rolled back reagan yet, but Bush did a fine job undoing everything supposedly progressive that Bill did.
Bill's administration created NAFTA and then ran out the clock. Nothing more elegant than that.
I do not want to waste eight more years of my life with a milquetoast, wimpy, centrist pro-corporate government. yes, Obama may turn out way more moderate than Hillary. No one really knows. But to quote your beloved selfish Bill Clinton, i'd rather "roll the dice" on Obama HOPING (yes, hoping) for a tru progressive that willl commence real change than KNOW FOR SURE that HRC will do no such thing.
Color me stupid, but I'd rather risk Obama than go back to the nineties where we could have accomplished much much more but didn't.
I could drive a Mack truck through the massive holes in your post.
Assuming I meant welfare "reform" is offensive. However, if you must, I would say that it was a disaster for poor people of all races but dispropotionately affected minorities. And you are dead wrong if you think the NAACP was "neutral." Almost ALL inner-city politicians were against it.
I was referring more to things like college grants and loans and the emasculation of unions. Latinos, in particular, are one group who is most fucked by the lack of strong unions. And if you cannot figure out why then I am wasting my time typing here.
all that stuff was ruined by Bush. THAT'S my point. Bush's "reforms" were much more permanent.
And please don't ever cite to me tax cuts as an accomplishment when this country is undertaxed and going broke because of it. And also looks like some pathetic third-world country in parts of infrastructure because we refuse to fund important projects.
