in calling every representative and senator and
asking for a full investigation of the radical right
influence in Starr's investigation and demanding a stop to
what amounts to a witchhunt. This President has
brought us economic prosperity, and the radical right is
determined to bring the country and the world to its
economic knees so they can blame it on the democrats and
seize power. If an investigator with unlimited budget
went after any one of us, how much dirt could he find?
it's not about "dirt" it's about fucking
Clit-man hasn't brought us shit. He's a figurehead, the
Republican Congress is responsible for any econimic
As a FIGUREHEAD we need to show the world that we
are a nation of laws, not men.
Clinton and his
band of liars need to go.
If the President is only a figurehead and the
Republican Congress deserves the kudos, Reagan's
accomplishment was a sham and the Democrats who controlled the
Congress at the time were responsible for the "great
economy" under Reagan? Taking this further, when both the
presidency and the congress were under Republican control
and the the deficit was zooming out of control into
orbit, the Republicans were responsible? Why were the
Republicans crowing about what the President had done for the
Also, if the president is just a
figurehead, why blame him when the market shows signs of
crashing? Would it not be fair to blame the Republican
controlled Congress? Those who really paid attention noted
that when the damage was not as great as expected from
airing the tape of his grilling by the Starr Chamber the
market breathed a sigh of relief and regained over 180
points. One would think, that if he's so ineffectual and
has no influence over the economy because he's but a
figurehead, the markets would care not one whit about his
You cannot have it both ways.
As for lying
under oath...the deposition regarding Lewinsky's
consensual relationship (sexual or not) should not have been
allowed in the Paula Jones sexual harrassment case, in
the first place. As such, it should not have been
admissible and, therefore, stricken from the record.
Further, according to none other than a former Special
Prosecutor, Lawrence Walsh, simply lying under oath does not
constitute perjury, unless the lie is material to the case,
which it wasn't, especially, given that the case was
thrown out of court.
Ergo, Starr, who had been
consulting on and coaching attorneys in the Paula Jones
case, prior to assuming the mantle of Special
Prosecutor should have had no legal basis for dragging said
deposition into the Grand Jury.
know a witch hunt when they see one and will not
tolerate it beyond a certain point. Gone are the days of
Joe McCarthy. Hello, Ken Starr.
drapes closed and spray for bugs. This hypocritical and
political hack, in search of the truth, couldn't see it
being murdered by his former Tobacco Industry clients
who lied before Congress and the country. Where was
his zeal in pursuing them?
If Henry Hyde was
youthful at 41 when he started being indiscreet during a
four year affair and ended it when he was 45(?), the
President was not youthful at 48? Not that that
extra-marital affair was Hyde's first or last, if one is to
believe the daughter of his erstwhile paramour.
Orrin Hatch is oblivious or turns a blind eye to the
rampant polygamy and teenage wives in his home state,
draining millions of tax payer dollars for their welfare
Dan Burton sired a bastard, who probably required
state assistance at one time or another.
call it intimidation when their own hypocrisy is
bared. Is it not intimidation for the baring the same
about the president?
What's good for the goose ought
to be good for the gander.
Some of these
Republicans, but not all, think nothing of intruding into
people's personal lives but feel that corrupt corporate
boardrooms that sustain them with political contributions
should be sacrosanct in the interests of a free economy.
No morals for business but tarnation and hell fire
for the private citizen.
Apologies for the
rant and being off topic...but more people need to
respond to political sniping or allow hypocrisy to reign
supreme...on either side of the aisle. Or people ought not
bring up off topic issues and not expect
Meanwhile, the time does seem ripe for buying more Berk-b...
<<it's not about "dirt" it's about fucking
You are absolutely right!! Clinton should get fired
for lying under oath. But for holding back on 8 out
of 10 blow jobs, I give him the Golden Rubber Award.
What the hell was he trying to prove?
Low-in-ski?... she's a slut! Too bad she'll make millions on
books, videos and cigar commercials.
I agree with your comments, and I'm not even a
registered Democrat. There WERE some potentially great
leaders in this country but now few will come forward and
none will be elected. Not that I think he would make a
great president but George Bush, Jr. is one of the
first to bow out with his announcement that he's having
second thoughts about running in 2000. Kemp, McCain,
Lott, Gingrich, Cheney -- all Republicans of great
ability -- all have skeletons in their closets. Notice
who is silent through all this hullabaloo: Bush
(Sr.), Dole, Armey, Helms. I don't wonder why. Al Gore
is getting my vote. Who cares about alleged campaign
finance irregularities. All parties are guilty; none want
to change and give up the "soft" money. I hope I
have the opportunity to vote for Hillary in some
future national election.
I remember the last time we had a crook in the
White House that desperately needed the ax. Nixon and
all his egg sucking minions screamed WITCHHUNT! Right
wing hypocrits widely excused Tricky Dick for his
felonies because "everyone does it" and "its just that he
got caught" and "what about all the others who do the
same but haven't gotten caught?" and "why can't they
just leave the guy alone to run the country?" The most
disappointing thing about the Vast LEFT Wing Conspiracy is
their total equality with the Nixon excusers. What
trash they were.
