A front page story at the SF Chronicle says President Clinton would have saved Social Security – if only the damn Republicans hadn’t been so obsessed with Monica Lewinsky.
Seems to me, we keep hearing that President Clinton would have “reformed Education, if only he hadn’t been distracted with Monica Lewinsky and those damn Republicans.”
And he would have “captured Osama bin Laden, if only he hadn’t been distracted with Monica Lewinsky and those damn Republicans.”
And he would have responded to the Khobar Towers bombings, and the bombing of the USS Cole, if only he hadn’t been distracted with Monica Lewinsky and those damn Republicans.
But…he did manage to focus on school uniforms and midnight basketball!
I’m just playing. But this fellow over at the The American Thinker is not. He rebuts the Chronicle article, and very politely, I think, while giving one pause to consider that her assertions are not entirely plausible.
You’ll want to read BOTH articles.
I do like Noel Sheppard’s final question, though:
Of course, another truly delicious snippet of hypocrisy rests with the following obvious question that appears to have eluded Ms. Lochhead and her ilk: If Clinton was so prescient seven years ago with his concerns regarding America’s largest retirement program, why are today’s Democrats trying to convince the American people that President Bush is inventing a problem that doesn’t really exist?
