Okay guys- Clinton,may have had trouble keeping his trousers buttoned, but this country was in far better shape under his watch.
You, sir, are emminently correct. 1] Any man's, even the leader of the free world's, sexual activities are entirely within his right to keep private. If Clinton had soiled government Oval Office property, that would be an entirely different proposition, but he had the respect for the Office to keep the stains on Monica's dress. 2] He prevented our children from being exposed to adultery. No matter how pushy that nasty neo-con Ken Starr became, the President adamantly declared that no such thing had happened, thus keeping the airwaves free of sexual banter. Additionally on the same subject, he convinced his wife to wear only pant-suits thus saving our children from another horrible sight. 3] He kept us free from terrorism. Instead of being so foolish as to capture Bin Laden when he was offered up on a silver platter, he used his smarts and let Osama take over Afghanistan instead. Whatever it took, he kept those dangerous terrorists off of our shores. 4] He negotiated with North Korea one-on-one and managed to get Kim Jong Very Ill to sign an agreement not to develop nuclear weapons. Hell, the current President can't even say nuclear. Can't really blame Clinton for Very Ill laughing at the treaty behind his back, can we? After all, how could the President have known there were such things as dishonest politicians? 5] He presided over the best eight-year economy in recent memory. It began ... let's see ... Oh, yes. Three months before his inauguration and ended in recession a mere three months before he left office. Given the recent rapproachment between BJC and GHWB, what's three months between friends? 6] He saved us from the embarassment of failed technology. Rather than having the entire Motorola Iridium satellite debacle land squarely upon the good name of the United States, he convinced the Chinese to use our top-secret missle technology to perform all 66 launches from their soil, handily removing from us the possible besmirchment of our 'leader in space' reputation when the entire idea went down in flames just a couple of years later. 7] Rather than place our young soldiers lives and our government's non-imperialist reputation in danger, he initiated a policy of hiring some obscure Texas company named Haliburton to do the overseas dirty work for us whenever such things became necessary. No bad intentions we ... it was those capitalist profit-mongers that done it. 8] Instead of causing foreign leaders to get upset with us by bombing military targets of importance when state-sponsored terrorists brought harm to our citizens and soldiers, he instead kept our international relations in top form and went after those despicable, price-gouging, inhumane drug companies by sending the B-1's to attack one of their aspirin factories. 9] Finally, he selflessly protected much of the national treasure contained in the White House from those awful Republican no-goods. At great personal risk and at his own expense, he has been thoughtful enough to store all that stuff in his crowded Chappequa home until 2009 when the next President Clinton will place it safely back in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Above and beyond the call, I might add. Thank you for having the courage of your convictions on this public forum to defend the President's good name from the evil-doers. I hope I have provided some assistance in my own small way. -
