As per usual Francis Rocca makes valid points, and does so lucidly. But I would dispute his assertion that many on the Right look at Clinton merely as a “hick and a callow bumbler.” In fact most people on both sides of the political spectrum know Clinton to be both intelligent and clever, and possessing of formidable political skills. The fact that he managed to get himself impeached doesn’t belie that.
I would similarly contend that many people regardless of political persuasion know Clinton to be, as George Will elegantly put it, “an unprincipled and deeply dishonest man.” And for these reasons those on the Right properly understood that while president he jeopardized the country’s security with his cavalier attitude toward, and feckless conduct of, foreign policy, and imperiled the office of the presidency with his wretched and dishonorable behavior.p>Many on the Left deep down probably agree with this assessment, but they will never admit it. This is the essence of the difference between the Right and the Left: The latter ignored the danger Clinton represented because they were and continue to be so ideologically blinded in their raw pursuit of power that what might best for the nation simply cannot enter into their thinking. For this reason the Democratic Party cannot be entrusted with the security of this nation. br> — Paul DeSisto br> Cedar Grove, NJ /p> p> HURRY BACK
