The Clintons did far worse than Bush

  • Follow Letters

President Bush has been the whipping boy for the Democrats and their willing lapdogs, the left-wing liberal press, ever since he was elected (he was elected, but many times we hear the opposite). They always harp on the negative, and never a positive word.

The latest is the firing of eight U.S. Attorneys, which is his right. Instead, he should have followed in the tradition of his predecessors, Bill and Hillary Clinton. He should have taken 1,500 FBI files of potential enemies so they could be coerced or blackmailed, if necessary, to go along with anything the administration wanted to do. Then he should have fired all the employees of the Travel Office who were holdovers from several previous administrations - and if that was criticized, he could fake charges of mismanagement against them and ruin their reputations.

Next, he should have fired 92 of 93 U.S. Attorneys and replaced them with others who would rule as he wanted on controversial cases. Then there would be no balance in the courts.

No administration has ever taken office under such an unethical cloud as the Clintons'. They pulled all the right strings to get what they wanted from day one, with no opposition from the liberal, left-wing media. President Bush has always had a hostile media.

Anyone who even thinks of putting the Clintons back in the White House should do some research into the corruption of the eight years they reigned. From stealing FBI files to pardoning criminals for payoffs, the eight years in-between was something no one should wish for again.

The Clintons swept into the

The Clintons swept into the White House with all of the support the national press could give them and all of the cover-up of wrong doing was included. However, most of the people won't be fooled all of the time and the Clintons were pretty much neutered by the 1994 congressional elections. Matt Drudge and the talk radio industry sprang into existence as a result of the msm trying to manipulate the news in a free society. The Clintons were able to get away with horrible behavior while in office and showed why they should never be in a position of power. The left wing press was able to distort and hide enough of this behavior to trick the headline readers of this country so the misinformed returned Mrs. Clinton to power in New York. The old political adage "you're only guilty of what the press prosecutes you for" has kept Mrs. Clinton in office, but a national campaign will reveal her true colors. Many of her supporters have already tossed her and before long most of the headline readers will too.
As far as Bush having to deal with a hostile press, yes he has. Power always comes before anything else with the left. National security be damned. That's politics.

The truth is that Bush and

The truth is that Bush and Clinton (Bill AND Hillary) are devious and self serving politicians who have done their best to mislead and abuse the power of the office of President of the United States. I believe it's time to have honesty and transparency in our government. This has become Government of the government by the government and FOR the government. It's my opinion that the American people are sheep willing to be led by whoever tells them what they want to hear, no matter whether it's delivered or not. We, the People need to take back control of our government and let it know that we won't stand for lies, abuse of power, or the eroding of our Constitutional rights!!!!!!

It is common practice to

It is common practice to replace U.S. Attorneys when presidents come into power, but to fire them to cherry pick whom you want more than half way your term throws up a red flag. U.S. Attorneys determine who will be prosecuted in federal court and you have to wonder if there is a push not to prosecute people who know the truth of the depth and breadth of corruption within this administration. To try and compare the Clintons to Bush when it comes to corruption is laughable. At least Clinton didn't squader billions of dollars and thousands of lives in an unprovoked war.

One of these days the Bush

One of these days the Bush lap dogs will be forced to open their eyes to the truth. They can not point out anything good that this president has done so they use the old RUSH approach. JUST TALK ABOUT CLINTON. Unemployment-UP, Gas prices-UP. Health Care prices-UP and so on. Like I said before REPUBLICANS WALKS ON WATER AND PART OCEANS.

old email...............................................................................

And Finally, can you imagine working for a company
that has a little more than 500 employees and has
the following statistics:
* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
* 7 have been arrested for fraud
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at
least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a

credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the
last year...

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.
The same group that crank out hundreds of new laws each year
designed to keep the rest of us in line.

LBenedict.In the last 26

LBenedict.In the last 26 years the Demorcats were in the White House for 8 of those years. Under a Republican White House we started base closings and cut back in funding the military. But if you listen to Republicans Clinton did it all. You say that 40 people connected to White Waters have died, hell 40 people in my graduating class from Richmond have also died in the same ammount of time. Do I get to blame Clinton for that? Bottom line no party has the ownership of ' Morals ". Some people believe that the Democratic Party represents all that is evil in America, while others think that the Republican Party Represent only the rich. What do you think.

You Bush apologists are

You Bush apologists are pathetic and desperate. Your reverence for your leader is not supported by reality. Most Americans are living at a significantly lower standard than they enjoyed during the Clinton years. My kids and their kids will spend the rest of their lives paying for your hero's criminal profligacy. It's far easier to blame the "liberal media" (such as the AC?) than to think critically and independently. Albert Einstein said, "he who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt; he has been given a large brain in error, since for him merely a spinal cord would suffice." This could characterize those who inexplicably regard Bush as the savior. LBenedict, I have a question for you. How can one be both a "yahoo" and an "elitist?"
