Oh, I know the move was during his second term. And, politically, it was the smart thing to do. As a president, I see his failure to go after the Taliban and letting the lending institutions be de-regulated as his biggest failings.<quoted text>
He only did that during 1995 and part of 1996.
He survived his second term because six GOP Representatives were busted having extramarital affiars during the impeachment hearings.
Without the distractions, it might have ended differently.
We might be in a different world if he had slapped them down after the USS Cole the way George Bush Sr. did when Kuwait was invaded.
We absolutely would be in far better shape if the banking regulations had been reinstated during W's term.
