Oh, I feel so bad for poor little Bill and Hillary Clinton! The media just isn’t fair to them! Oh, woe is them. At least that’s what Bill Clinton says. Specifically, reports Breitbart, “During a campaign stop on behalf of his wife, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former president said he can’t understand why so much of the media coverage of the campaign ignores her experience.” He thinks she would be doing better against Obama if the mean old media just focused on how much more experience she has than what Obama has.
Okay, fine. He wants a focus on her experience, here’s a focus on her experience. How about her experience not just firing but trying to have prosecuted the totally innnocent people who ran the White House Travel Office? How about her experience getting rich at a 250-million-to-one shot, in terms of the size of her $99,000 profit on one corrupt $1,000 investment in cattle futures? How about her telling falsehoods under oath about the Travel Office mess? How about the corrupt Whitewater/Castle Grande/Madison Guarantee deal or one of them; they all run together) where the Clintons avoided losing their shirts while taxpayers had to bail out the S&L to the tune of tens of millions of dollars? How about her experience hiring scary private investigators to pressure women into keeping their relationships with her husband away from public scrutiny? How about her experience with corrupt Chinese/other Asian fundraising schemes? How about her experience conveniently misplacing billing records for two years? How about her experience saying that Social Security does not face a crisis when it manifestly does? How about her experience proposing a failed socialistic health care proposal? How about her experience in White House temper tantrums, and using foul language, and fomenting bizarre conspiracy theories (not to mention oxymoronic ones) about a “vast right wing conspiracy”? How about her youthful flirtations with Black Panther types and with Communists?
And I could go on and on. Bill Clinton wants experience? We’ll look at experience. Gladly.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
