President Clinton's stumping tour for Democratic candidates on the West Coast prompted a quick rebuke today from his predecessor, George Bush. Clinton argued thatrecord-breaking economic figuresreleased today demonstrate the success of a Congress controlled by Democrats. Unemployment dipped to a four-year low last month and hourly wages rose at the fastest pace in 11 years, the government said. Clinton, on tour in California through the weekend, said the nation's economic situation proved that Democrats had "delivered what the American people have long wanted." He slammed the Republicans who refuse to give him any credit for the recovery as "playing to the worst instincts of the American people." Bush, at an Omaha campaign stop, said he had "handed the new administration an economy that grew."Post your opinion on theWashingtonbulletin board.
