What would you have had Clinton done different from what he did?
Clinton's focus was on his post presidential library fundraising (remember Mark Rich's presidential pardon after Denise Rich made a huge donation), sexual acts with Monica Lewinsky while in the Oval office of the White House instead of meeting with the CIA Director, defunding the CIA so they couldn't connect any dots between agencies and treating The First Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Center like an international shoplifting incident. His response was to send Gore on a PC Tour to assure Muslims there would be no backlash or profiling.

the never ending saga of Liberal Hypocrisy

The madness of liberal moralizing

The paradoxes of liberal morality were on glaring display last week. The Obama administration OK’d the sale of “Plan B” post-coital emergency contraception over the counter without prescription (or parental consent) to girls as young as 15.

At the same time, the liberal NY City Council moved a step closer to banning anyone under the age of 21 from buying cigarettes (the legal age is now 18).

Apparently, a 15-year-old is a fully mature adult (a “woman,” in nauseating feminist parlance) when it comes to deciding to have sex. But a 20-year-old, in the City Council’s eyes (or a 17-year-old, under current law), can’t be trusted to make her own informed decisions on smoking and must be restrained by the government.

The Plan B decision was still too restrictive for some abortion-rights and feminist groups. The New York Times, on cue, denounced the administration’s “stubbornness” in setting any age restrictions on Plan B.

It is not news that “nonjudgmental” liberals, who deplore moral stigma directed at virtually anything SEXUAL, have simply redirected their MORAL CENSURE to certain behaviors with negative health consequences — SMOKING and OVEREATING being the favorite targets.

Of course, if a 15-year-old is terrified that the boy she just had sex with has made her pregnant, they almost certainly weren’t using a condom. In which case, she is at risk of the stew of infections now breeding between the legs of promiscuous teens and young adults, who add 10 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases a year to the existing 110 million infections.

BUT THERE IS AN IMPORTANT EXCEPTION TO THE LIBERAL “IT’S OK TO STIGMATIZE AN UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE” RULE: UNHEALTHY SEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS STILL BEYOND REPROACH.

Even grotesque levels of promiscuity require value-neutrality, though they can lead to crippling disease or death; they’re only objectionable if their participants fail to use the prescribed prophylactics, and only on that ground.

The NY Times editorialists fall back on the usual “they’ll have sex anyway” rationale for demanding Plan B for 11- and 12-year-olds:“Lack of access to safe contraception will not stop adolescents from having sex,” they write. The same can be said for smoking, of course.

More important, THIS ARGUMENT IGNORES THE ROLE OF SOCIAL NORMS IN ENCOURAGING OR RESTRAINING BEHAVIOR.

THE ADULTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE “PLAN B FOR JUVENILES” DECISION HAVE SIGNALED TO YOUNG TEENS THAT THEY VIEW EARLY SEX AS INEVITABLE, NORMAL AND FORESEEABLE, IN THE SAME WAY THAT BUILDING DAY-CARE CENTERS IN HIGH SCHOOLS TELEGRAPHS TO STUDENTS THAT ADULTS EXPECT THEM TO HAVE BABIES.
THE TIMES UNDOUBTEDLY SUPPORTS THE DEPLOYMENT OF SOCIAL NORMS AGAINST SMOKING, HOWEVER.

Smoking is an idiotic decision that imposes costs on the smoker and on society. But its consequences pale in comparison to the removal of stigma from pre-marital (especially early pre-marital) sex and the ever-growing emancipation of children from parental control.

THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION BROUGHT AN EXPLOSION OF OUT-OF-WEDLOCK BIRTHS AMONG ADULTS AND TEENS, DESPITE THE AVAILABILITY OF NEW CONTRACEPTIVES. THAT RISE IN ILLEGITIMACY HAS IMPOSED FAR HIGHER COSTS IN CRIME, PRISON AND WELFARE THAN SMOKING EVER HAS.

The demoralizing of juvenile sex has left us in the preposterous situation of viewing the decision to buy a pack of cigarettes as weightier, and more in need of an adult’s full cognitive and moral capacities, than a teen’s decision to have sexual intercourse.

<quoted text>Maxine Waters: Green Jobs Are a Lot More Talk and More Corporate Bullshit...
The Corporate “green jobs” boondoggle is one of the most sacred myths of the Obama Administration. As Maxine Waters has thrown cold water on it you idiot...... Maxine Waters: Green Jobs Are a Lot of Talk and Bullshit...
As the Congressional Black Caucus chokes on Obama’s expensive balloon juice...
Maxine Waters has declared herself low on patience for Obama’s fabulously expensive “green jobs” initiatives.
“Of course, we want to be part of the new innovation and green jobs,” said Waters, who should consider drinking tea in public and occasionally wearing a tricorner hat if she really wants to get Obama’s attention.
“But you know, the green jobs have been about a lot of talk, and not a lot has been happening on that waters said.”
Oh, plenty has been “happening on that,” Rep. Waters. Just this week, we had the story of a Seattle initiative that blew a cool $20 million in taxpayer money to create fourteen jobs.
An even worse dollars-to-jobs ration was achieved at Johnson Controls in Michigan, where $300 million was spent to create 150 jobs to manufacture batteries for electric cars.
Practically every week brings a new story of a “green jobs” company declaring bankruptcy Obama, increasing America’s carbon footprint by sending huge piles of taxpayer money up in smoke, selling out to the Top One Percent...
Johnson Controls employs 170,000 worldwide and it's stock is currently valued at around $35 ps. The company is headquartered in Milwaukee__isn't that one of your Democrat towns?

You were a Newt supporter.
"“If Governor Romney would like to give back all the money he’s earned from bankrupting companies and laying off employees over his years, then I would be glad to then listen to him”— Newt Gingrich [Mediaite, 12/14/11]"
"“Now, I have no doubt Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company, Bain Capital, of all the jobs that they killed”— Rick Perry [New York Times, 1/9/12]"
Like some 2,300 other such U.S. equity firms, Bain looks to buy companies that are underperforming or undervalued and turn them around.

Far from "looting," this is a vital contribution to capitalism and corporate governance.

Some companies bought by private-equity firms suffer job losses after a buy-out because the companies were underperforming.

The critics don't mention the companies acquired in private-equity transactions create more new jobs.

Chrysler and GM might have turned around earlier with fewer job losses and without any taxpayer cost had they been bought by private equity two or three decades ago.

Think of Obama "investing" in Solyndra. Only he didn't use his own money. He used ours. And it still went under.

What you fail to grasp is companies go out of business every single day without help from anyone who are trying to prevent it. Some companies still can't make it work even with help.

Romney is an honest man and good businessman who created over 500,000 jobs at Domino's, Staples, Sports Authority, Sealy, Brookstone, and many others. That's more than Obama.

He wanted the opportunity to do the same for the country.
