Because he was born in Arkansas.

Because he was not due to testify before congress with incriminating evidence of an administration guilty of the high treason of supplying our enemies with arms (Benghazi).

Same reason Ocarter doesn’t have to resign after a fatal Benghazi disaster and massive cover up. He’s a democrat, who are allowed to play under different rules than republicans.

Actually, I’m glad that he didn’t resign. Had he done so, a sitting President Gore would have been easily elected in 2000, and Gore in the Oval Office during, and after 9/11 is impossible to contemplate.

The dems seem to have that tactic down to a science. Everytime they want someone to go away, they bring up some scandel, and boom, he’s gone. That’s the Chicago way. They even got Obama,s opposition to drop out of the race in Chicago wnen they brought up the fact that he went to a strip club or some such thing, with his wife!

Because his affair with Monica was a resume enhancer and he was more beloved because of it. Impeachment didn’t seem to ruffle him or the dems at all (of course that was for lieing under oath and not for the adultery).

Because the Monica Lewinsky scandal sucked up all the media bandwidth and allowed the Clintons to do lots more under that cover.

He frequently took the in-your-face route. You thought there were 30 FBI files obtained illegally? Nope! Nine Hundred Fourteen! So indict me!

“Republicans are righteous.”

And it is this very “righteousnes” that is used as a tool AGAINST Republicans. Democrats, and particularly liberal Democrats, have no sense of shame, and remorse is an alien concept for them.

All the more reason to divide this land mass known as “the United States of America” into two (or more) countries, based on voting patterns. Geographically, only a relatively small area of the country gave a majority vote to the Current Regime, but we are all hauled, nilly-willy, along with a headstrong and anti-American agenda.

What’s even more bone chilling is to imagine what a 1980 Carter 2nd term would have played out llike, and how it would have effected us uo until today in 2012.

Carter was naive, incompetent, but he was an Annapolis grad, a disciple of Rickover, and a sub commander. There was something there..he is a decent man. Obama is EVIL, a hard left ideologue.. with no love of this country.

Petraeus was leading an organization in which every employee can be fired for adultery. Clinton was not the direct supervisor of such an organization.

The same reason why Holder didn't have to after F&F.
The same reason why Jesse Jackson Jr. doesn't have to after stealing and corruption.
The same reason why Corzine is free.
The same reason why Hillary and Bill Clinton skated while everyone around them either went to prison or died.

↑ Do not try this if you are not a Democrat.

,,,, very true ,,, then out with T.Lott and in with no-brainer John Boehner . Boehner is strictly an observer not a party leader . He is very content to sit and watch 0bama institute one executive order after another as he does his end run around our usless House of Reps , violates our Constitution and tramples on out personal liberties . No wonder republicans stayed home on Nov. 6th . Some registered Repub. voters are now saying that our party candidates should move more to the center to get elected . I say the only thing left for the John Boehners in our party is to change their affilation to Dem. because any further left and they would have to sit on that side of the isle .

Articles of Impeachment are drawn up and voted on in the House. Clinton was Impeached in the House of Reps. Removal for Impeachment is then taken to the Senate for a vote and that didn’t happen.

Clinton promotes abortion, so he gets all sorts of exemptions such as free gropes, free rapes, free adultery, etc.

The press never mentions that he was impeached and disbarred either, though that may be because he's a Democrat.

I’m just saying had Carter won in 1980, how would we have fared in the cold war vs. Russia and how the whole Iran hostage situation would have played out and if a 9/11 Muslim terrorist act on US soil would have happened throughout the 90s. Had Carter won in 1980, I doubt we would have ever had Clinton or Bush.

Clinton should not be allowed to be an adviser in this administration. He had his two terms. In many ways this seems like his third. Obamacare/Hillary care.

Holder, Susan Rice, Hillary, Podesta (adviser to state department)

Enough recycle of the Clinton ,Bush and Goldman Sachs people
