Why I lost faith in the man I backed in 1992.

JERUSALEM--I saw Bill Clinton the other night, at the "after party" for Shimon Peres's 80th birthday. Little wooden doves of peace were mounted on poles; colored lights lit exotic foliage. Everyone was there: F.W. De Klerk and Pnina Rosenblum; Terje Roed-Larsen and Ron Lauder; Lord Levy and Achinoam Nini. Also, there was a young lady in a J-Lo number with glitter sprinkled suggestively from her sternum to her navel. But I didn't catch her name.

"To people like me, he was a hollow and posturing and feckless man who embodied that side of America that was also hollow and posturing and feckless."

That was on a really good day. On average he sucked.

"Has that clinton "legacy" made you feel safer yet?"

Lest Americans ever forget why the clintons, and all their enablers need to be hectored, hounded, and harried into silence, until "clintonese is only spoken in Hell," look here:
The Clinton Files

There are, of course, what I consider my "most damaging" set of hard-core links:

"If you think Nixon deserved to go down, then so too did Mr. Clinton"

The only thing wrong with this statement is that Nixon didn't commit perjury. He covered up a crime - but he never planned it or participated in it. If Nixon had just exposed it and fired the participants .. they would never have been able to force him to resign.

Clinton actually committed a crime - he committed perjury - which is a FELONY. Surely that is worthy of impeachment. I don't give a rip about the broads. Why should I - his wife doesn't.

Very succinct and well stated apologia of Clinton-hating.

There were, instead, two incarnations of Candidate Clinton: first the challenger, then the incumbent. In both cases, no such thing as "policy" could be said to exist; Mr. Clinton moved where political convenience dictated.

It's too bad more people didn't realize this characteristic of Clinton's before he became president. It's too bad there are many who still refuse to acknowledge it even in hindsight.

>>>>>It's too bad there are many who still refuse to acknowledge it even in hindsight<<<<

The Big lie at work. For example, this article brazenly reinforce falsehood of poor innocent Bosnian Muslims being massacred by evil Serbs, the cornerstone of Clinton foreign policy.

The Big lie is hard to shatter. THE BIG LIE is THE CLINTON LEGACY.

1. Clinton destroyed US strategic advantage by sharing top technology with Chicoms, to the benefit of North Korea

2. Clinton destroyed US morality by showing that there are no legal consequences for wrongdoing.

3. By providing support to radical Islamists in Bosnia Clinton made 911 possible.

As a people, it is our responsibility to stay the course. To make certain our children and grandchildren and all who are fed the revisionist history now being taught, are able to know for themselves EXACTLY what bill klinton and his socialist wife did to our nation and the peoples of the world.

They are very bad people. People who took their foundering party and rolled thru it, demolishing any inkling of true vision and pro-American sentiment it had left.

Truly, they now have the power, control the MONEY, blackmail or RUIN those who oppose them (hillary Klinton stated during her failed and horrendous, law breaking health care debacle, that Moynihan and other senators who OPPOSED her plan were DISLOYAL. GASP! YIKES!

But not suprising for a prima donna who ordered taht NO WH staffers DARE look her in the face or acknowledge her in the hallways! WOW!!! What a skag!

The klintons left office with our nation vulnerable to attack, our culture degraded (note the number of middle schoolers caught engaging in oral sex because our president has said it was NOT SEX! oh gag me....oh PUKE!), and their own party hijacked and at their mercy. Pretty horrible stuff.( Not to mention the incredibly UNBELIEVEABLE number of actual deaths of klinton associates who could do them harm!)

Oh yeah...we will NEVER FORGET and we will spread the actions of the klintons around this nation for as long as we live.

The mainstream press may be under klinton control because they want the access, are leftist and perhaps enjoy the parties too much to be honest with the American folks....but we have each other, our dedication to the truth, and are watching the mainstream media go down the tubes just like the dem party because, in the end, character comes thru.

It was never the economy, it was always character.

Which is why, the dems, are trying to destroy President Bush's reputation as a man of good character. If they cannot break our trust in President Bush, they cannot win, and probably will not win for a long, long time. America is waking up, in large part, to the FULL STORY being told by Fox News Cable and by you and me and other Americans who understand what is at stake.

The harder the leftist media and dem politicos and pundits try to crush President Bush, the greater their fall will be, because truth will win out in the end.

It wasn't for the lact of facts or the lack of trying. Many of us that lived in Arkansas before and while he was governor knew this about him.

Any decent journalist could have uncovered all kinds of his fecklessness. As could a good political opponent. But the Dem field in 1992 was weak and only Moonbeam Brown even mentioned "Whitewater". Bush 41 didn't dig up the dirt either. Lee Atwater, RIP, surely would have.
