Clinton Administration Document Credits Deregulation for 90s Boom

24 11 2008

I’m sick of Republicans constantly talking about Reagan, but I’m really at a boiling point with Democrats talking about the 1990s and wanting to go back in time, to a place where ignorance was bliss.  At least Reagan-obsessing Republicans don’t want to go back to the 80s; they just (over)seek out certain “content(s) of character,” thinking their timeless traits will translate well in any era.  Democrats really want to go back in time.  Who’s the conservative now b%(*#s?

To me, the 1990s were just the buildup time directly before an inevitable, crusade-like attack on America.

I guess I’ll get used to it since Obama has recycled so many players from Bill Clinton’s term(s).  Honestly, I’ll take it.  His other alliances seem worse than Clinton’s cronies and I didn’t want to fundamentally change the country to begin with.

Anyways, it’s time for liberals to put their earmuffs on again and not read this article, so they can deny it’s premise and keep making stuff up as they see fit.  That way, they can prescribe more of the same medicine that got us all sick while blaming conservatism.

This article out of Scotland, which proclaims “capitalism didn’t kill the banks, socialism did,” helps diagnose our current financial crisis quite succinctly.

Please note the difference between deregulation in markets besides housing, which smart people know wasn’t “deregulated,” but was rather, “hyper-regulated” as people like Barack Obama had “sit-ins” at banks to disrupt business and encourage junk loan lending to people who should have been in apartments.

I’m a democrat and want to go back to the 80’s. Not for Reagan – More for the leg warmers and as you say, earmuffs. 🙂

In all seriousness, I get your point. But my memories of the Clinton years are really really positive (albeit I was still a kid for most of it). I think recycling SOME of that administration is a very smart move – especially if you need to move fast, which we do.

I also reject the argument that Clinton led to a cruisade against the US. I think the person in office needs to take full responsibility for what happens when they are there. Clinton held ground when he was in office – and there is only so much you can do during transition to get the new guy to understand the seriousness of what is going on around the world. Biased or not, I blame the W for a bad transition last time – not Clinton. I also don’t think Clinton could have done much more to stop Osama – He tried to take him out and missed. Those options were few and far between.
