Question for Oliver

Conspiracy theorist and filmmaker Oliver Stone blasted President Bush today complaining that the President has "set America back 10 years."

I'm a bit confused by the comment. If, according to most liberals, and certainly most Democrats (if those two "groups" could be separated at all), the United States was much better off between January 20, 1993 and January 19, 2001 (i.e., finger-waving President Clinton's term of office), isn't Stone's comment actually a compliment? Wasn't September of 1996 just blissfully happy with Clinton coasting towards re-election by under 50% of the popular vote?
