When the only president in US history to be elected and impeached, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, was nearing the end of his eight years in office the handmaiden media speculated endlessly about "his legacy." By their accounts it was a preoccupation of Billy's too as he busily pardoned Puerto Rican terrorists, scam artists, drug dealers by the dozens, and others who could funnel beaucoups bucks to the Clinton Library Fund (AKA: the world's biggest house trailer-- have you seen it?) in Little Rock, Arkansas. Now, to be sure, many of us already knew what his true legacy would be: 42nd POTUS impeached and disbarred for lying under oath to federal grand jury whose only memorable oratory was two lies, "I did not have sex with that woman..." "The era of big government is over." But the dinosaur media, the academy, and others perpetually in the tank for the D Party hoped for better things. Oh, how they hoped, as their boy swanned around the world giving speeches and turning out 800 page door stops full of howlers. Seven years and $120 M dollars in Clinton family income later we have the definitive answer to that old legacy question. Much like the Soviet Union they admired, Bill and Hill are on the ash heap of history. Put there not by their Republican rivals but by the base of the Democrat Party. The same people who saved their two behinds time after time have now kicked them to the curb.
Which is why so many people who used to be called "Clinton haters" in the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" by the angry left have taken so much delight in watching a huge portion of the Democrat Party discover just how loathsome Bill and Hill really are. We knew it in 1992 and they figured it out in 2008. Dems always were slow on the uptake. Better late than never I suppose. I wonder how long it will take for them to figure out how empty a vessel Barry Obama is? Four years? Eight? More? We tried to warn them-- this won't end pretty either.
