Dick Armey: I Appreciate Bill Clinton

Monday, 21 Sep 2009 07:37 PM

By Jim Meyers

Bill Clinton expressed shock at the news that former House Majority Leader Dick Armey had spoken well of the Clinton presidency.

The Texas Republican, a frequent critic of President Clinton while he served in the House, told the Los Angeles Times: "Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have made me appreciate Bill Clinton more than I did.

"I think that President Clinton was more involved, more responsibly and ably in his job as president than what we've seen since him. He deserves more credit than I gave him at the time."

During a ceremony in Washington last week, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported, Clinton responded: "Dick Armey said something nice about me the other day. I almost had another heart attack."
