    And the Spanish American war in the lie about the sinking of the Maine.

    You guys won't know what to do when he's gone. You're literally obsessed with him.
    Remember how they went after Clinton like rabid dogs then when Obama became prez they were saying "Man at least Clinton was this..." and would go on as if they liked the guy? That's what's gonna happen should Hillary become president. They'll go on about how so extreme she is that Obama was a decent president to them. Partisan hacks are predictable hacks.

    whomever is the current democratic president is the "most left wing POTUS in US history" to hacks. Nevermind that FDR New Deal thing. Far more lefty than what this prez has done.

    FDR is certainly up there as well, as is Wilson. But, for example I dont consider Clinton to be very far to the left.

The best thing that Bush did while President was to kick the Neocons to the curb during that last part of his second term. But it was too late. The Neocons ruined any kind of a legacy that Bush might have had, and he will long be remembered as the President who started a war based on lies.
    Depends on how you want to ascribe neoconservative influence. If you mean foreign policy decisions, I think most of them won't stand up positively (except for perhaps his Africa policy).

    If you mean domestic policy neoconservatism, I think there's some good stuff here:
    -No Child Left Behind (Built from his father's Goals 2000, in a sense continued with Race to the Top under Obama--has many problems, but is important to keep)
    -IDEA 2004 (Which, among other things, tied NCLB in emphasizing students with disabilities' academic achievement needed to be payed attention to more thoroughly than in the past)
    -Faith-based initiatives (which still continue to this day)
    -Medicare Part D (Still here)
    -Bioethics Committee (even if it was summarily dismissed by the Obama administration)
    -Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act

    Bill Clinton is the only Presidential Candidate I would vote for in the Democratic Party. Maybe Joe Biden if he wasn't such a blabbering fool all the time. Those are the only two people I can stand in the party.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Now you are talking about policy most of which the general public has long forgotten about and only those in political circles remember.

    Meanwhile back in 1996 he Clinton was a socialist Maoist Marxist. Easily the "most left wing POTUS in US history" if you ask a Republican then.

    That's a mixed record, to be honest. Frankly, I care more about what "those in political circles remember" more than I do the general public.

    They haven't forgotten NCLB, most American's don't know the ADA let alone IDEA-so I'm not concerned about that, the hoopla over faith-based initiatives was largely a left-wing fantasy, Medicare Part D was good, the Bioethics committee went in directions unconventional for the time (and since), Bush's Africa aid venture was widely praised in the early years of the Obama administration.
