I mean, look at Clinton! Did impeachment even put a stutter in his step?
Well, no... but that was all by design, dude.
The Lewinski affair/scandal was used as a media subterfuge. Both Bill & Hill wanted that scandal to go down so that Law Enforcement and the general
public would be so distracted by the MSM's sleight of hand that it wouldn't even occur to them that there may
be something completely
diabolical about the murder of Vince Foster, oh and the Waco incident.
Bill knew he wasn't going to get impeached for sleeping around. Nobody cares! Even the most die hard Republicans, be it governor or senator, would
have never actually removed the president because of something he did in his love life that isn't even illegal and (essentially) bore no real
. Also, like half the freaking population (politicians included) are cheating on their spouse. Rep, Dem, Indy, Green (especially green),
NPA, extramarital affairs occur in every demographic and every income bracket.
At the end of the day, Bill did
get impeached, remember? He can no longer practice law as he has been disbarred (so are B & M Obama by the way)
but the House decided that an extra marital affair was not a justifiable reason to remove a sitting president. Which is technically correct...
So yea, the Clinton's and company were all about that Monica scandal because they knew it wouldn't lead anywhere and, actually, it makes the ones
leading the lynch mob (wasn't it Ken Star?) look foolish for trying to 'overthrow a sitting president' with nothing criminal except for the (possibly)
that he lied under-oath.
It actually undermines the republican's capability to effectively go though the impeachment process because it makes their opposition only more
sympathetic to President Clinton. The public rightfully forgave Bill. I wasn't even a teenager yet when that happened but I remember hearing about it
and thinking - "well, for having been demonized for sleeping around on the woman that he's only pretend married to for business reasons, I
can't really get behind this mob mentality group that wanted to see Clinton impeached.
That's correct, you actually did just read that.
