Clinton brought shame and dishonor

No matter how hard the media try to rehabilitate Bill Clinton ­ the man who brought shame and dishonor to the presidency ­ he seems unable to shed the chronic misbehavior that marked his White House years.

He sullied his image, got himself impeached and destroyed forever his hopes for any kind of legacy worth remembering.

What he did during seemingly endless recent TV appearances, where he attacked President Bush, showed once again why he deserves to have people hold him in contempt instead of having the Democratic party and subservient media fawn over him.

Both are ever anxious to pay homage to him no matter how low he sinks.

Some of the more honest journalists did admit that Clinton's attacks on President Bush were off-limits, pointing out the fact that former presidents simply do not criticize their successors. They just don't do it. Unfortunately, they failed to add that Clinton's criticism was also completely off base, like much of what he says.

The whole incident reminded me of one of my father's finest moments. On the day of his inauguration in 1983, just minutes after learning about the release of the American hostages in Iran, he sent former President Carter to greet the hostages and even gave him the use of Air Force One for his mission.

Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter may have been worlds apart in their politics, but they shared one similarity ­ they were both gentlemen. It's something that no one ever could say about Bill Clinton, now appropriately memorialized by the Chinese by having a line of condoms named after him. Our media and his fellow Democrats may not have his number, but the rest of the world does. Clinton's condoms ­ what a legacy!

Clinton's activities on the talk shows showed once again, that like his Democrat colleagues, he cannot stop wanting to run this country and run the world while he's at it. The man's overwhelming hunger for the spotlight marks everything he says and does.
