Clinton Deserved Jeers
Delegates in Charlotte got an earful from former President Bill Clinton. Clinton praised Obama as being the standard bearer for the Democratic party going forward. He looked good, was full of sound bites, and gave the delegates and TV audiences a rousing nomination of Obama.
Let’s not forget, as many seemed to have, that both the Supreme Court of the U.S., as well as the Supreme Court of Arkansas, disbarred Bill Clinton for giving false and misleading testimony under oath for which perjury and obstruction of justice charges were brought against him by Congress.
He later admitted that falsehoods regarding his testimony in the Lewinsky scandal were “wrong and inappropriate.” He settled his lawsuit with Paula Jones with an $850,000 payment. Clinton also paid a $90,000 fine imposed on him by Federal District Court Judge Susan Webber Wright for civil contempt of court. Clinton missed being impeached by a narrow vote along party lines in the Senate.
I don’t get it. Jeers instead of cheers should have resonated in the convention hall as Clinton addressed the virtues of honesty, integrity and morality.
