    Isn't it more correctly Clinton was fortunate enough to benefit from the .com craze? To credit him for this is like blaming Carter for the woes of the '70's.

    Actually this is an excellent point. It is a common falsely held notion that the President has significant impact on the economy.

    Most would agree economic swings take too much time to assess success or failure today based on what a President's administration or the Government as a whole is doing to impact the economy today - there is no direct correlation in that short a period of time.

    Exactly. The President gets far too much short term credit or blame for the economy. He has very little control over it. Which is why, historically, the great Presidents aren't noted for great economies.

    That may be true but in the same breath, the .com craze wasnt the only thing that helped the economy...tax policies, overseas investments, small business loans for startups, etc.

    An argument could be made that the President has very little control over the economy. He proposes a budget as does the Congress...compromises are made and the bills get paid.

    Recently yes we have stabilized a bit but we will have to wait and see how it plays out. The time frame I referring to is the past 5 years. Compared to the euro and the amount of debt held by foreign countries (i.e. China and Japan).
