Power Line: Does Everyone Hate President Bush?

Power Line: Does Everyone Hate President Bush?

Quick trivia quiz: For what popular pieces of legislation do we give credit to President Clinton?

We remember Clinton as a sympathetic man, one who seemed like Bubba from down the street. Sure, to his enemies he was "Slick Willie" but to many Americans he was Ol' Bill. We don't remember him for groundbreaking shifts in American laws. I'm sorry, we don't.

We remember WJC because he was/is likable.

For whatever reason, GWB is just not-so-much. At least that's the image that we see over and over and over again.

A hint to wannabe-Presidents: watch Reagan and Clinton. Now do it again. And again. And again. There is something to be said for both handling the media, and going through/over them to the American people.
