Did Europeans like Clinton?

Just a question...I was wondering whether this hatred of American policies in Europe just happened in the last couple of years beacuse of Bush or if it's been this way for a while

Clinton was very popular here, the total opposite of Bush... Most people in Europe (including me) can't stand Bush

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I think he was not taken that serious because of his habits but he for sure was more popular and far less dangerous then mister poof poof!

I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Interesting, I'm happy that this is just a matter of policy instead of being anti-american.

Alot of Americans can't stand Bush either, including me
Two years ago I just wanted Clinton to go away but now Bush has made me realise how good he was, despite the....well, you know incident.
Then again, I'm not really American (I'm European) so who knows

Sadly, there will always be an element in Europe and the world who are anti-American by instinct, just as half an hour watching Fox News tell us that some Americans are anti-European.

However, Clinton was broadly better liked in Europe...simply becuase he was a better leader than GW will ever be, more willing to engage on issues rather than dictate policy from on high. GW is a fool. At best.

i think clinton is and was more popular in germany then bush.

Meine Posts spiegeln allein meine Meinung wieder und erheben nicht den Anspruch repräsentativ zu sein.

Clinton was very popular over here and I personally liked him a lot.

Bush however is a very different story..........

Well, he brought war, bombs and bloodbath to a certain part of Europe, remember? All I can say is that in Yugoslavia he's liked just as much as Hitler was in his days

Also, it's funny how some people attack Bush because of the bombings in Afghanistan while at the same time defending Clinton who was far more aggressive and trigger-happy during his presidency with Yugoslavia, Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan and Haiti being some of his war 'trophies' or should I say victims.

Bush seems to be a cozy teddy bear compared to that guy. Had it not been for the Sep.11 attacks I don't think Bush would have cared much about foreign policy. Remember, he was the one criticized by Clinton/Gore and other advocates of "humanitarian" interventions for being too isolationist. Now, of course that has changed to some extent, but he has some way to go to match Clinton's bloody record...

Clinton was responsible for the war in Yugo?

was he also responsible for the 7/8 thousand people massacred in Srebrenca?
