It would seem that the national embarrassment known as Bill Clinton refuses to disappear quietly. Even in the final days of his corrupt administration, he could not resist spitting in the face of the American public one last time by pardoning more than 140 thieves, murderers, drug dealers, former aides and friends. Included in this group was Marc Rich, who fled to Switzerland after being charged with federal tax fraud and illegally buying oil from Iran during the hostage crisis in 1979. Rich apparently deserved a pardon after his wife donated more than $1 million to the Democratic Party.
Shortly after Clinton assumed office, he issued an executive order that banned senior aides from lobbying any agency they served for five years after leaving office, and from ever lobbying for a foreign government. One week before leaving office, this hypocrite repealed that order because now he and his cronies would be affected by it.
I don't blame Clinton for the embarrassment he brought to this nation and to the presidency as much as I blame those people who saw his lack of character and still accepted it. I don't believe Clinton has the moral capacity to comprehend his shortcomings or to even understand that he has done anything wrong at all.
