bill-clinton-weiner

At a Shabbat (Sabbath meal) this past week, conversation veered into the political realm, as it often does when my husband and I are guests. We began to discuss the likelihood of Hillary Clinton running, the papers recently unearthed by my former colleague Alana Goodman, and about how Bill’s wandering eye could impact Hillary’s campaign. Around the table were three young people, ranging in age from about 9-17. Adult participants in the conversation soon realized that it was impossible to conduct a conversation about the Clintons with children present, and soon, the mother (rightfully) asked for a complete change in subject. Before doing so we reflected how sad it is that a president’s legacy cannot truthfully be discussed with innocent ears listening.

For how long can this mother shield her children from the topic? If Hillary runs, perhaps only a few more months. With the Clintons back in the news, pundits will be (and should be) discussing how ready America is to relive the sex scandals of the ’90s. Anyone who believes that Bill has learned his lesson need only look to Anthony Weiner to understand that old dogs can’t, and won’t, learn new tricks. Bill’s wandering eye, both in the past and, in all¬†likelihood, the future, will be a topic of conversation for as long as a Clinton occupies the White House.

So true. I remember being horrified to realize that my son, nieces, and nephews, and children in general would be subjected to the filth. So much for the left wing concern for "the children" It filtered down like a deadly miasma into the general population and then barriers began to soften and fall because after all, if the president can do it, why not. The Clintons are the single most polluters of our politics and culture. The two of them are vectors of vitiation. They corrupt, pollute, and defecate on everything in their orbit.

For the thousandth time--it wasn't about the sex, it was about the fact he perjured himself under oath; and harmed U.S. national security (e.g. Cox report); most likely by selling U.S. nuclear secrets to the ChiCom for campaign cash. It's a damn shame he wasn't tried directly for the latter.

Not only innocence lost, he cheapened the dignity of the office and brought embarrassment to it, all because of his animal needs. Then lied, and played cheesy legal tricks when it was revealed what he'd done.

What can you possibly say about the character of the man, he who would do such a thing?

This is as bad as my liberal relatives complaining about persecution for a blow job. It was never about the blow job, it was about lying about the blow job. Lying. Remember? The thing that cost Nixon his presidency?

Since when is it inappropriate to teach children about lying? Geesh.

I checked Bartlett's Once on Clinton Quotes. Bill only had three. "I didn't inhale." " "I did not have sex with that woman." "It depends on what 'is' is." Not one of those quote is true. Besides treating used Kleenex better than the women in his life or the Country he took an oath to serve, and bribing and suborning numerous witnesses to lie, every quote he is "remembered" for is a lie. Quite a record, you boob. The Democrats turn out quite an assembly line of horse's asses and its not likely to end any time soon.

Not only that it was about perjury and witness tampering more than sex, but also, that it was about harassment and possible rape(s), not a 'wandering eye'.

Clinton and Monica is a walk in the park. Try explaining a John Waters/Divine movie and how Clinton's scenes ended up on the cutting floor.

He's also guilty of Perjury, for which his law license was revoked. He lied under oath to a court while in office. Clinton is a walking obscenity.

Well at least he didn't order the burglary of his nemises' psychiatrist. That'll cost you a presidency.

Actually, Nixon didn't order for them to break in. The buglars did it of their own accord. What Nixon did get tried for was covering up the burglary.

Fine, he ended up being investigated for covering up the burglary, happy?

thank you so much for articulating what has bothered me ever since this sordid story emerged. I was outraged we had to be confronted with every detail just because Bill Clinton was not man enough to admit he had had an affair and say "so what" or whatever instead of trying to weasel out of it. So that kids had to see things on the front page of the paper or hear them in the news - and middle school and high school kids were introduced to the subject of oral sex. Disgusting, dishonest and cowardly.

My daughters were in late middle school and early high school. I deeply resented having to discuss oral sex with them at that age.

I was in my early years of teaching high school U.S. History and Government when all this was going down. I deeply resented all the time I had to spend discussing the creepy details with a bunch of low socio-economic teenagers. They all thought that this revealed what all authority figures were secretly up to. When we watched a video about the White House, as they saw different rooms on screen, all they could talk about was trying to figure out the specific places Clinton where got serviced.

Then again, they were paying attention in history class. That's the bright side, I guess.

Mr. and Mrs. Clinton are known as the ultimate "power couple". Even referring to them as Mr. and Mrs. seems odd, like to emphasize that they are married, as in holy matrimony. "Power couple" is actually more descriptive, to use the left's affectionate term. They are two power hungry leftists who play the role of wedded lovers, when in fact, we all know, He dates several different women in the course of a year and did so, even after impeachment and still President. I imagine the only time they see each other is on stage and in green rooms before being on stage.

It has been an open secret for years that he has had numerous liasons since, but the response to that is who cares, right? The point is the "power hungry couple" part. As Kathleen Willie said on Fox last night, Hillary tried to find criminal charges to set up Gennifer Flowers. The Governor's wife, Hillary wanted to capture her and lock her up in an Arkansas jail. What is this the dark ages?

What happens if a Bimbo eruption occurs in October of 2016 and Hillary gets week in the knees and has some flimsy evidence to feed the media and get an innocent girl locked up or harrassed or have a fan give out her home address? This is the power hungry couple... This is the Woman who stood in front of 4 caskets at Andrews Air Force base and in front of the grieving parents and blamed their deaths on a fake story about a video in order for her to "Cool the Mark" and slip out of town after saying "What difference does it make". These are the people that locked up Wen Ho Lee for a year and a half in Solitary confinement and shackled to the floor to shut him up.

This Power Hungry Alliance is not a marriage, it is more like a gang or a conspiracy to commit. When the Left accuses conservatives of always having a money motive, a greed motive,.... The GOP should respond with the truth and that is the Left always has a power motive, and money is only a vehicle for them to gain power and take it away from others.

Obama talks about how even as he was starting to run for the Presidency, he and his poverty stricken wife had not paid off thier oppressive student loans. By the time he celebrated his first year in office, his 1040 income was higher than the average annual 1040 income of all the Presidents elected in his lifetime,... combined!!!

And how? He reissued a fluffy campaign book that was so boring in its first edition, it was a flop and a financial failure, but as campaign literature, he earned $6 Million dollars and is now worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $15 Million. Profit on Power. Jim Wright was run out of town and indicted for the same campaign book bribe scam. Power Hungry Democrats. Promise the poor they can keep their doctor and insurance, then take away both and have them lose their job then blame someone else and play golf. Get rich in office.

Throw inconvenient peons under the bus. Arrest bimbos. Audit Tea Party members. Remember in the 60s, everything was power, flower power, people power, and so on. Are you part of the solution or part of the problem was the threat.

Hillary is now the driver in this Political machine. They want power and they don't care who they hurt or who loses freedom in order for them to get what they want.

The 2016 bumper sticker for the GOP against the 25 year reign of terror of this "power couple" should be a variation on the Barbara Bush line:

Clintons? Again? Haven't we given you enough already?

I had to field those same questions about sex from my 3 elementary school daughters in the 90s and thanks to the power couple. One more thing they took away from me and my family. I know I've had enough.

Marriage as RICO.

The cynicism is cosmic --both what the couple exudes, and what the rest of reality sweats out every place they are, which is everywhere. It's almost indescribable without strong images and symbols --Satan, for example, is the spirit that makes one hate the truth, right? So when the Clintons understand ahead of time that they can get away with anything and everything because Americans have lost their minds, it IS the truth and we DO hate it.
