Being a former president in the internet age means you don't necessarily need a TV network to interview you in order to get some talking points out there. Case in point is former President Bill Clinton, who sounded off about the current

Reagan made concessions at home and treaties and peace talks with world leaders, he tried to continue the work of Johnson but not with Johnson style. Johnson was a task accomplish-er, he was thorough in whatever he undertook and expected to see resuts, so like Reagan he managed both home and abroad. With one exception he made concessions as he expected american entrepreneurs were capable to undertake tasks successfully and make it into a booming economy. Entrepreneurs had developed a taste for concessions, if no concessions then we will find a region in the world that gave them concessions. A grave mistake by many who did not see laws of other countries could dictate how companies make money and share money and Bush Sr saw danger of countries ignoring UN resolutions and so he had the task to control the world. An aspiring Governor of Arkansas saw an opportunity of fixing the economy as a priority but was accepted by the world leaders as someone who would bring back Kennedy years so he was able to take the reigns off the hands of Bush Sr. Bush Sr conceded the election with grace with honor. And the Clinton years saw economy improvement but trouble brewing around the world. No body had anticipated OBLaden distaste for America. He fought the Russians with the American Aid which was not meant for the Laden but meant for the Afghan Freedom Fighters who called themselves Mujahideen. Laden had the vision of bringing them together under his command with religious fervor of saving Islam from America. Laden plan worked. At the same time the Taliban were creating groups and leaders but refused to join Laden. They worked to complement the effort of Laden. Terrorism had already started when they attacked US embassies and USS Cole. Bush Jr had a great plan to bring and unite all of the conservatives, the capitalists saw an opportunity, but Bush Jr was also successful in bringing religious undertakings and they saw a lobbyst in Bush Jr., they no longer needed to send an ambassador to discuss religious views, it was already decided that they (the religious groups) had a responsibility and often referred to them as Faith Groups, he wasted no time to control capture and bring to justice the blatant attackerss of 911 and in that process some opportunists took advantage to destroy the American Dream, a vast violation of ethics in capitalistic economy, that would shock the dictator governments and corrupt businesses abroad. Back to American politics and the eroded American Enterprise opportunists,many preferred to alienate capitalism in favor of progressives. But progressives are ones that want to move away from the greed to make a better image, but guess what others with no intention to be that image also self-proclaimed themselves as Progressives. President Obama has priorities that extend far beyond the boundaries of Johnson era, not speaking geographically but speaking in terms of magnitude to bring changes that needed priorities, he wants to tackle multiple tasks not managed as such by any other President in many decades, certainly going back as far as Reagan years to assess the US need and make changes. When his presidency finally ends, his legacy will be the president who made the greatest amount of changes to improve the American Dream. (Cant wait to see what the 'birthers' and the 'fault-finders have to say about this).

I am making some changes in the first paragraph as this was a typo.

Johnson was a task accomplish-er, he was thorough in whatever he undertook and expected to see resuts, so like JOHNSON he managed both home and abroad. With one exception he (REAGAN) made concessions as he expected american entrepreneurs were capable to undertake tasks successfully and make it into a booming economy. Entrepreneurs had developed a taste for concessions, if no concessions then THEY (BUSINESSMEN) WOULD find a region in the world that gave them concessions. A grave mistake by many A BUSINESSMEN who did not see laws of other countries could dictate how companies make money and share money (AND THAT WAS NOT LIKED BY THE AMERICAN BUSINESSMEN) and AFTER REAGAN ERA Bush Sr saw danger of countries ignoring UN resolutions and so he had the task to control the world. An aspiring Governor of Arkansas BILL CLINTON saw an opportunity of fixing the economy as a priority but was accepted by the world leaders as someone who would bring back Kennedy years so he was able to take the reigns off the hands of Bush Sr.
