where's the cigar?
Holy crap is that good!
Nice one Jeff!
Hey if i were going to be on a quarter that's the way i'd have it. Now everytime a chick goes to buy a gumball she'll realize what she's working towards.
I searched - show me!
The other was not the same -
Pardon Gumby. Clinton is his hero.
LOL! Last three posts = coke out the nose.
That things so old it could be in the old forum.
Coulda swear I've seen it here before. i think it was going around when he was still in office.
If that's what his legacy is, then so be it. Some people think the only thing Kennedy did was bang MM.
What's Ws legacy gonna be?
Beerdude - You know YOU'RE my hero. I wanna be just like you when I grow up.
Hey Gumby -
At least you have good taste in women!
Nothin against Slick Willy - gas prices were down - and my income and stock was up...
I agree - Dubbba - ranks up there with Garfield...
There was another quarter about a month ago - not the same...
Got it for ya right here....... Granted - it's hidden in a link - not the greatest repost sin.
Wow - Gumby I stand corrected - what a memory! You must really love the man! I always judge a man by the legs on his wife and Hillary has elephant legs - oops - low blow...
Hard to say what slick willy's legacy will be - either the monica thing, the whitewater criminal thing or pardoning Marc Rich.
Yeah - to the elephant!
Name 5 things that Clinton actually accomplished while in office besides.
Transforming congress from Democratic control to a solid Republican controlled house.
Nomination of the most politically biased Judges since the Marshall court.
Did nothing while terrorist organizations attacked US interests.
Chased really ugly women. (If I was the most powerful man in the world I would at least find good looking women)
Oh yeah...And the reason Gumby likes him. Don't ask don't tell.
Clinton was not all bad though. He was smart enough to realize that free trade has a positive impact on the US.
Bottom line is I was better off 6 years ago than I am now, in almost every facet of my life directly or indirectly influenced by the government.
I could give a damn if he chased women of any type. That had very little to do with my life.

Lowest unemployment in 30 years
Unemployment dropped from more than 7 percent in 1993 to just 4.0 percent in November 2000. Unemployment for African Americans and Hispanics fell to the lowest rates on record, and the rate for women is the lowest in more than 40 years. Less than 4% unemloyemt when he left office.

Largest expansion of college opportunity since the GI Bill
President Clinton and Vice President Gore have nearly doubled financial aid for students by increasing Pell Grants to the largest award ever, expanding Federal Work-Study to allow 1 million students to work their way through college, and by creating new tax credits and scholarships such as Lifetime Learning tax credits and the HOPE scholarship. At the same time, taxpayers have saved $18 billion due to the decline in student loan defaults, increased collections and savings from the direct student loan program.
Connected 95 percent of schools to the Internet
President Clinton and Vice President Gore’s new commitment to education technology, including the E-Rate and a 3,000 percent increase in educational technology funding, increased the percentage of schools connected to the Internet from 35 percent in 1994 to 95 percent in 1999.
Lowest crime rate in 26 years

100,000 more police for our streets

Smallest welfare rolls in 32 years
The President pledged to end welfare as we know it and signed landmark bipartisan welfare reform legislation in 1996.

After falling by nearly $2,000 between 1988 and 1992, the median family’s income rose by $6,338, after adjusting for inflation, since 1993. African American family income increased even more, rising by nearly $7,000 since 1993. After years of stagnant income growth among average and lower income families, all income brackets experienced double-digit growth since 1993. The bottom 20 percent saw the largest income growth at 16.3 percent.

Since Congress passed President Clinton’s Economic Plan in 1993, the poverty rate declined from 15.1 percent to 11.8 percent last year — the largest six-year drop in poverty in nearly 30 years. There are now 7 million fewer people in poverty than in 1993. The child poverty rate declined more than 25 percent, the poverty rates for single mothers, African Americans and the elderly have dropped to their lowest levels on record, and Hispanic poverty dropped to its lowest level since 1979.

Lowest infant mortality rate in American history
The Clinton Administration expanded efforts to provide mothers and newborn children with health care. Today, a record high 82 percent of all mothers receive prenatal care. The infant mortality rate has dropped from 8.5 deaths per 1,000 in 1992 to 7.2 deaths per 1,000 in 1998, the lowest rate ever recorded.

Between 1998-2000, the national debt was reduced by $363 billion — the largest three-year debt pay-down in American history. We are now on track to pay off the entire debt by 2009.
Converted the largest budget deficit in American history to the largest surplus
Thanks in large part to the 1993 Deficit Reduction Act, the 1997 Balanced Budget Act, and President Clinton’s call to save the surplus for debt reduction, Social Security, and Medicare solvency, America has put its fiscal house in order. The deficit was $290 billion in 1993 and expected to grow to $455 billion by this year. Instead, we have a projected surplus of $237 billion.
