YOu just gotta love this country. Where else could you go and find a presidential library that may never open, the Clinton Presidential center and now the Counter Clinton Library !!!!!

With help from the likes of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Dick Morris, this could well get more traffic than the other Clinton place.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- A group dedicated to building the 'Counter Clinton Library' - a rebuttal to the Clinton Presidential Library - has been granted status as a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.

The move could help the group with fund-raising but also requires it to be more public about its supporters.

Counterlibe Corp. of Washington, D.C., received word this month from the IRS that it had received the tax-exempt status to pursue its goal of responding to what it sees as "propaganda" planned for the official $160 million presidential library, which is scheduled to open Nov. 18 in Little Rock.

To keep its tax exemption, the Counter Clinton Library must fulfill its plans of building bricks-and-mortar museums in Little Rock and Washington displaying what it promises will be documented negatives from Bill Clinton's eight years in the White House.

While they have every right to take on such an undertaking and while Clinton did some things that were questionable, I think this idea is in bad taste. Whenever we elect a president, I think he/she should be held in proper regard and given the respect the office deserves whether or not we agree with their politics. I agreed with most of Clinton's ideology at the time although like most presidents, he couldn't please everyone as we are currently seeing with Bush whom I agree with on a few issues as well.

I think we can disagree with a President politically without resorting to embarassing actions that "stain" the office itself. And, while the left is very good at this sort of thing as well, I don't think that justifies ideology behind it. This is the wrong thing to do and the wrong road to take. That doesn't make what the anti-Bush crowd does anymore right, mind you but we aren't discussing them in this subject.

I tend to agree with your idea of respecting the Office of the President, even if you can't respect the man in the Oval Office.

I can see where they are coming from though. Mr. Clinton seemed to regard much of the traditions of the White House with disdain. His disrespect of the Office came before the Counter Clinton idea came about. He did the country a great disservice and allowed the military to erode.
