Bill Clinton trumps George W. Bush
The Kansas City Star
One former president - Democrat Bill Clinton - showed up at his party’s national convention and gave a stemwinder of a speech that energized his party.
The other former president - Republican George W. Bush - wasn’t even allowed to come to his party’s national convention.
One former president - Clinton - presided over balanced budgets and a fast-growing economy, facts he was able to highlight at his speech in which he lacerated the other party’s claims.
The other former president - Bush - endorsed tax cuts named after him, tax cuts that put this country into hundreds upon hundreds of billions of dollars of debt. Bush also presided over the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression.
One former president - Clinton - showed a way forward, a way to get this country and its middle-class back on their feet.
The other former president - Bush - was nowhere to be seen.
Bill Clinton preached that Democrats are proud of their country, partly because it tries to do its best to care for others, especially with programs such as good health care.
George W. Bush believe - as Mitt Romney does - that giving tax cuts to the wealthy will propel this nation forward.
Who stood up to make his case on national television?
The one who had the better case to make, Bill Clinton.
