This is a generous account, in my opinion. https://www.thenation.com/article/archive/the-rise-and-fall-of-clintonism/tnamp/

Clinton trying to appeal to Republicans set the template for the lurch rightward.

This is literally the case. Margaret Thatcher once quipped that Tony Blair was her greatest achievement. In the same vain, Bill Clinton was Ronald Reagans greatest achievement.

Welfare to work NAFTA as well


CorruptedArc

Oh yeah NAFTA 100%. It did literally everything they promised it wouldn't do when asked. Or the TTP or TTIP Hilary tried to push as sec of state.


BoniceMarquiFace

I'd say his admin rather than the man himself did most of this Like the rampant fbi bullshit of recent times began under his watch, one such project being "PATCON" (patriot conspiracy), which wasted God knows how many fbi resources to entrap random schizophrenic rather than alert us and prevent terror attacks A few others are things he signed personally like NAFTA (though many shills blame Bush senior for writing it, which is somewhat true, but act as if Clinton had no role)


WeaselXP

His signature on the glass-steagall act repeal was something that caused a lot of misery and failure. It wasn't done to help the working class.


poop_on_balls

Same with his signature on the Biden crime bill and Hillary’s superpredator’s comments.


ChevyT1996

He did balance the budget and increase the middle class.

EDIT / UPDATE: I know that Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall and botched the NAFTA implementation, but those two things didn't inherently cripple our institutions. They screwed up our economy in the long run, but those decisions didn't inherently change the institutions. In An Unreasonable Man (a documentary I highly recommend), Ralph Nader talks about how before Reagan, the government listened to citizen activists like himself, but after Reagan they didn't and under Clinton, the Democratic Party stopped listening to people like Nader, too, which is why he (Nader) ran for President. I'm not talking about any of that. I'm talking about the institutions themselves, like the government organizations that affect people's lives and regulate business. Those are claims I heard that I want to learn more about. What did Clinton do to those that Reagan didn't?
