Oh, Curse-sed Second Term

Driving up Constitution Avenue this evening, I saw the white panel vans and satellite dishes staked out in front of the Court. Waiting on news from Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald. To indict or not to indict, that is the question.

The superstitious–who aren’t babbling about some made up curse of the Goat, Bambino, or Frying Pan (I made the last one up myself)–are also talking about the curse of the second term. You know, when the administration gets caught up in a big ole’ scandal and implodes. Leaving the American public waiting 2 or 3 years for executive branch leadership?

Listing out recent second term scandals we have the Reagan Iran-Contra scandal. You remember the one when we traded arms to our ENEMIES for hostages, which we would never do since we don’t negotiate with terrorists, right? Then there was the Clinton, tawdry oral sex and the stained blue dress in the Oval Office scandal, in which he didn’t have sex with that woman. And now the Bush-43 scandal, the one with top guys pulling the wool over the eyes of the world to get us to war with Iraq. You know, starting a war is a prestigious line of work with a long and glorious tradition!

Wait! Hold everything.

We have two foreign policy and terror scandals. People died. And in between is the sex scandal in which nobody dies. One of these things is not like the others.

  1. Thanks! Great comments.I don’t disagree that a leader needs to lead–and be ahead. And I, too, share much of your disappointment that Prez Clinton did not live up to his potential. (And I am not referring to his predeliction for peccadillo on the portico.)The < HREF="http://www.gpoaccess.gov/911/" REL="nofollow">9/11 Report<> does, however, talk about some constraints on Prez Bubba. Like the < HREF+ HREF="" REL="nofollow" HTTP://WWW1.CNN.COM/WORLD/EUROPE/9905/10/KOSOVO.CHINA.02/>1999 U.S. bombing of the Chinese Embassy<> in Yugoslavia. Or even the hyper-hot economy. Folks were really thinking inward, about themselves. No room for universal health care OR agression to get ephemral badguyz. The 9/11 Commission Report tells us alot about that time and makes me think about what could have been.

  2. Wait, wait … I know! The one that is not like the others is Bubba in the oval office getting his bj’s! Yes, and no one died because of the bj’s! In fact, I’m sure it cleared Bubba’s mind, body and his… well, you know… I guess Hillary was too busy reforming our health care system to take care of her man in the ‘downstairs dept.’ (… if you know what I mean).My thought is that perhaps he should have received a few more bj’s in the oval office. To actually be able to get rid of that pesky, useless, mind – fogging juice in the middle of the work day…at the office … WOW, what a concept! Companies across the nation should set up BJ rooms. CEO’s could quickly clear that work day ‘pressure’ (… if you know what I mean) and then could perform their duties (fraud, money laundering, stealing from their employees) with a more clear mind! Look what a few good bj’s in the oval office did for Bubba’s performance!He could point to the lowest unemployment rate in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, the highest home ownership ever, dropping crime rates in many places, and reduced welfare. He proposed the first balanced budget in decades and achieved a budget surplus to boot! What the hell, a few more bj’s in the oval office couldn’t hurt! With even more bj’s, Bubba’s clear mind could have concentrated more on acts of terrorism by the likes of Osama/al Qaeda and on his slacker CIA/FBI/Pentagon officials. Where on his watch, the twin towers parking garage was bombed the first time, and I believe 6 people were killed, and the USS Cole was bombed where I believe 17 of our US sailors were killed and 38 injured. The web site http://www.armscontrolcenter.org/terrorism/101/timeline.htm lists acts of terrorism toward the US by year. Compare the number of attacks during Bubba’s watch to others. He had the chance to make this world safer. A leader, in my opinion fixes things BEFORE they are broken. While our whole country was enjoying our good fortune (a lot of the good fortune because of Clinton), he and his good ole’ boys slacked off…dizzy with power, unprecedented approval ratings, and in bj heaven. He was our sleeping giant (and I’m not talking about his penis) and terrorists around the world knew it. Perhaps with one more oval office bj Clinton would have seen the light and taken care of Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein while he had the power, charisma and the chance to do so. He had the power and charisma to warn countries like Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia etc. that the U.S. is not a sleeping giant and will not turn our backs on our citizens or other peoples’ safety. Maybe, one more oval office bj and there would not have been a Sept. 11, 2001 as we know today – when 3,000+ of our innocent American citizens were murdered…..DEAD…You know Doc, all politicians lie. All Presidents lie (except Jimma of course)… but, whether we voted for them or not, the President is our leader. A leader, in my opinion fixes things BEFORE they are broken. Since the beginning of this universe there has never been peace and never will be peace. We can either wait till something really bad happens, or we can have the balls to get on the right track when the odds are in our favor. Bush has neither the brains nor the charm of Clinton. The odds and opportunities were in Clinton’s favor to make the world safer but while the US citizens were lulled by our good fortunes the rumblings of terrorism were sounding stronger and stronger. Bubba took a bj break and left the terrorism for the next president to deal with. In my opinion, this is far dumber than anything Bush has done.
