About Clinton

I was going to write a few things about Bill Clinton's interview on Fox last Sunday. After thinking about it, I have one thing to mention. President Clinton claimed the Republican Congress' targeting of him over Whitewater and Lewinsky kept him from killing bin Laden. If true, that is reprehensible. It's reprehensible on Clinton's part. Bush doesn't care what the Democrats threaten to do to him. He doesn't worry about how much the public likes him. For good or ill, he wants to do what's best for the country. If Clinton didn't, he deserves more derision than he could possibly receive in his lifetime.

    Glad to see another post...

    You are very right. Clinton is a WUSS concerned with only ONE thing---well, maybe just two: covering his butt and exposing his front.

    Umm - not sure what planet you're from, but on Earth, there is nothing at all wrong with sex, politicians always cover their butts, and Bush cares absolutely nothing for the well-being of this country. If Bill Clinton actually did try to insinuate that the Repug echo chamber distracted him, then sure - that's clearly spin. He should be ashamed for playing the same game the right does. However, the implication that what Bush is doing is somehow beneficial to this country or its people is utter madness. Compunding the errors of his forebears is hardly the way to peace.

    Hey, Romophobe. You use the word SPIN. It's interesting to note that the term really didn't come to the forefront of the media-driven politics until that person (sorry, someone who shifts blame, and doesn't display one shred of integrity does not deserve to be called a MAN - take that back. No, I'm not sorry for my opinion) came to the Presidential campaign. There's a reason that SPIN CITY reminds us about the Clinton administration.

    At least we know that GW Bush does what he says he's going to - and we don't see him making excuses. I appreciate the fact that he's not pressured by world politics. We (as America) have told our kids for years to say no to peer pressure. Mr. Bush has done just that.

    Everyone has a right to his opinion, Hokie. No need to express your lack of apology. Just so long as you understand as well as anyone else that it is merely opinion having not much basis in fact.

    For example, the word "spin" as used in this context descends from "spin doctor" - a phrase first attested in 1984, according to the online etymology dictionary. Somehow the right has managed to blame alterations to the English language on him as well? I had no idea Mr. Clinton had occupied the oval office for so long.

    As for the current oval-office-occupant, examples of his saying he'll do one thing and then either not doing it, or doing the opposite are so numerous that going into detail here would be crass, although I'll happily dive in if you like.

    And spare me the John Birch Society isolationism. I sincerely hope for the sake of everyone's future that you're not teaching your children such neo-fascist nonsense.

    So Bush does what he says he is going to do. So apparently does Bin Laden. And that makes Bush good? He is a moron. If it wasn't for his last name being Bush he'd be stocking shelves in Wal-Mart.

    I have no idea why I bother reading this blog. I guess it is cause I am originally from Rome, and every 60 days or so there is a post regarding Rome. The rest is this national stuff, and I can't believe I have been suckered into responding.
