Skip to comments.Why Did So Many People Hate Bill Clinton? An Exchange Among Conservatives
Posted on 07/25/2005 4:35:49 AM PDT by johnny7
In a recent essay in the NYT Book Review of John F. Harris's The Survivor: Bill Clinton in the White House, Alan Ehrenhalt speculated about the reasons Clinton was so disliked. This sparked a rigorous debate on Richard Jensen's list, ConservativeNet. Below, a sampling of opinion.
Alan Ehrenhalt's Review
Millions of Americans despise Bill Clinton. They have done so since he became a presence in national politics in the early 1990's, and they continue to do so today, more than four years after his retirement from public office.

Maybe its because China can now threaten us with our own nuclear arsenal!
What I hate is what a third rate con-man and his communist wife did to damage the USA internationally, and the damage he did to the Presidency.
Because he was and is so corrupt. Very simple.
I don't hate the corrupt, disbarred, adulterous, pathologically lying, impeached rapist.
I guess I do despise him. Mainly because he was such an evil man and his wife is even more evil.
Osama Bin Laden.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Make sure to read the commentary down from the article at the source site. It's really good.
However I do despise Jimmy Carter. For many of the same reasons come to think of it. And the fact that he is a dictator cuddling commie.
I love the guy now. On an almost daily basis he reminds Americans what it would be like if there were another Clinton Administration. Don't change a thing Bill.
I can not say that I "hated" Clinton, but I did think he was a bad president, maybe not quite as bad as Carter.
Clinton was very fortunate to ride on the Internet boom.
My problem with Clinton is that everything with the man, then and now, is that it is all about himself.
He could be the most self centered man in history.
Being president, to him, was just a tool to get fame and fortune. It was never about the welfare of the nation, a 24/7 job.
It is hard to calculate just how much damage he did to this country, but I would think it is considerable.
He's evil. The only president with a body count. Think about that. Rape is not his worst crime by far.
Liberals sell their souls for votes. That is what he did. He gave it up for gays and blacks who clearly hate whites, for femanists who hate men, for abortionists and those that would manipulate foolish women into thinking their babies are choices. He gave it up for every group of people that wanted a raise from their boss no matter how many people around the world are willing to do the same work for a tenth as much. After collecting such a gaggle of persons and not winning a majority of votes, he and they seemed to be in our face for the next 8 years with everything they did.
Bump for your comment. Just ask the family of Luther 'Jerry' Parks and many others.
The colossal tragedy is that the fourth estate could not, would not see and tell the truth about him. (Other than a precious few such as Ambrose Evans Pritchard.) They still won't. And most Americans don't have a clue about the pathological creature he really is.
Agreed. The man had a lot of abilites but he was more worried about being liked than doing the right thing.
