Look, I don't condone Bill Clinton's affairs, but I'd rather have a womanizer, who's intelligent and well-intentioned, in office.
So what if he had improper relations with some women? He was an excellent president.
Tasaio, the leader of a country, supposedly an example to all, especially kids, that is a conniving, wheedling liar? Oh yeh, he was raised in such a naive wonderfull, folksy, all American fashion, that he didn't even know he was having sex? 'Golleee geee, folks, out heyre, we dont even caaall thayt sex, do we momy. I'm just a good clean country bo' that was tricked.' He lied his snivelling guts out. A person that was happy to let a young woman wear it for his want of some sex, while he is supposedly taking care of world affairs? Absolutely no respect for anyone. She made mistakes, but there is no way I'll accept that the guy was so dumb, that he couldn't see the whole thing coming. He is the one in power, the president, and he manipulated the whole thing. To get what he wanted, all the way. Then snivelled and grovelled and whined and wheedled, whilst the young woman bore the brunt, alone, and was thrown to the starry eyed public. He and his publicity machine knew full well what she was in for from his rabid, blinded devotees.
If he had the fibre and decency to own up and wear it, at least that would be an example of honesty, and rate some respect, empathy and understanding. So I rate him with Bush. Wheedling, conniving gimps hiding behind everyone else, acting good and strong and brave. A little bit different to the movies, you know, Harrison, a fightin' an wrasslin' baddies, savin' damsels and the world, for the good ol' USA. Buy it if you like.
