Clinton was a democrat, therefore a socialist. They worship ONLY at the alter of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and The Kennedys.

And I'm glad he was impeached.

That idiot doesn’t even know what a socialist is, but that’s to be expected when he’s dumb enough to believe all the garbage he sees on Fox Noise. Just think how well-informed he’d be if he spent just half as much time studying politics as he does engaging in pedophilia.

I vote FOR Kool-Aid ! I watch Bill O'Reilly on FOX NEWS EVERY night.

I have a college degree, majored in economics, minored in political science and theology, and I have voted in EVERY election since 1976.

Democrats are Evil. PURE EVIL. This fact cannot be rationally disputed.

Also, I'm a Libertarian, NOT a Republican, and I have been out for over 30 years. Not ALL gay people are Democrats\socialists\Communist s such as yourself.

DADT was progress, howver small. Had Clinton vetoed the bill, there would have been no progress at all. What there exists today needed a starting point. That was DADT.

unemployment is back on the rise, the economy grew at an anemic 1.1%, we're $14 trillion in debt, houses are still being foreclosed on in record numbers, the mexican drug cartels control the border, gas, corn, wheat and gold are ALL more than twice what they should be, and, we still have no budget.

His impeachment was overturned. And please look up the word socialism, you'll find it meaningless just as meaningless as your post. America is socialist because we have a central bank and a currency.

You are clueless and thank you for diplaying your ignorance so PROUDLY.

An impeachment CANNOT be "overturned". The FACT is that Clinton WAS impeached for his perjury before the grand jury (amongst other things).

Deal with it.

And you also obviously don't kow anything about socialism either.

Thanks for NOTHING, u B-A.S-T.A-R-D.
Ya Stanton, if it had been up a right wing president we would have had marriage equality back in the 90's right?

You make a fool of your self every time you post.

Yep, right after the republican congress took over the purse strings and shut down his left agenda. Liberals never quit, they just change direction.

Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice but acquitted by the Senate.

But I suppose you could technically say he was impeached but the victim ended up Newt Gingrich.

That racist, pedo, Daniel from LI, should be in jail.

As for replying seriously to his "substantive" posts - which he knows are nonsense - it would be difficult to think of a more unproductive activity. The entire thread will become, in essence, an argument about whether Strom Thurmond or Bill Clinton is the bigger homophobe.

I would question the intelligence of anyone who would bother to seriously engage in such a debate. Better to not reply to the racist pedo at all, but discuss his absurdities amongst ourselves.

It's not that I cannot answer your question. It's been answered dozens of times and you simply don't like the answer. He didn't veto it because it was the best compromise he could get at that time.

Now that I've answered you, are you going to answer my two questions? WHICH PARTY IS TRYING TO DEFEND DOMA LAWS?
Which Party supported (and still supports) Constitutional amendments to ban SSM?
