Let’s start with some news:
Viewers of NBC’s “Meet The Press” were treated to a blast from the past Sunday morning as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) weighed in on former President Bill Clinton’s behavior with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Host David Gregory asked Paul about an interview with him and his wife that appeared in the September issue of Vogue. In it, Kelley Paul said that voters should consider Clinton’s “predatory” behavior in the White House before returning him there as first spouse. Clinton was impeached in 1998 after lying about his sexual relations with Lewinsky and had to fight to remain in office.
“I think really the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this,” Rand Paul said Sunday, when asked to respond to his wife’s comments. “He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior.”
Dear GOP: Leave Bill Clinton alone!
Seriously – it’s for your own good. I get it – he cheated on his wife right there in the White House. You guys literally caught him with his pants down. There was DNA and everything. He got a hummer from a young woman who was less than half his age. He also diddled her with a Cuban cigar.
WE KNOW ALL THAT!
We also know Monica wasn’t the only one. Hell, we knew he was a horndog when we elected him. It was probably all Hillary could do to keep him from humping on women’s legs in public.
LET IT GO!
Bill Clinton is your white whale, but do you recall what happened to Captain Ahab when he finally caught Moby Dick? Do you recall what happened to Newt Gingrich? What about Bob Livingston? Going after the Big Dawg cost you guys TWO Speakers of the House.
And what did you get? Bill survived impeachment. In fact, his approval ratings went UP during and after the scandal. He remains one of the most popular politicians in the world. He’s the guy the Democrats call when they need help in an election.
Going after Slick Willie over sex scandals is like trying to get milk by beating a dead horse. He got his picture taken with three pornstars and people just laughed and shook their heads.
There are plenty of good arguments to use against Hillary Clinton. Trying to convince people that her husband is a rapist or sexual predator just destroys your credibility with the voters.
He got away with it. He beat you. Make your peace with it and move on.
