By now you’ve heard that Democrat candidates in key races don’t want the president campaigning for them. But Bill and Hillary Clinton are okay.
I don’t know about you, but I’ll never forget how Bill Clinton sullied the White House, our house, while carrying on an affair with Monica Lewinsky.
As the media gave its obligatory “ho hum” after Lewinsky’s reappearance last week, “Good ole Bill” is out speaking for candidates, where the president is persona non grata.
So there he stands, his white hair flowing, his glasses on the end of his nose and his finger waving, trying to appear statesman-like, while telling people who they should vote for. After all, the Lewinsky thing was 16 years ago. Old news. He currently has a 64 percent approval rating, and has appeared for nearly all of the candidates in close races.
Then there’s Hillary, who wants to be president. Obviously, she’ll travel to support any Democrat candidate as long as the appearance doesn’t conflict with a six-figure speaking engagement fee. And she will expect those candidates to support her run for the presidency.
How can voters seriously take the advice Bill and Hillary are giving them? While Bill is happy to take corporate contributions to support the Clinton Foundation, Hillary slams some of those same contributors by telling voters that corporations and businesses don’t create jobs.
Hillary thought she was being quite clever when she related the story that Bill had brought arithmetic to Washington. Yes, he did. 1 (blue dress) + 1 (cigar) + 1 (indictment for obstruction of justice) = impeachment. Simple arithmetic.
How can anybody take this pair seriously?
