Please forgive me, but I need some assistance. I had lunch recently with a close family member who insisted that President Bush is leading the most corrupt admin in history. I countered that it wasn't, that in fact Clinton had easily a more corrupt admin and had more people indicted than any other. He replied, no, that was Nixon. I honestly just don't have time to research all of this, and I know that there are people on here that either know the answer off the top of their heads or can tell me exactly where I can look it up.
Depends on how you define corruption...indictments? Convictions? Rumors? Lies perpetuated by the party not in power?
Your friend is wrong and is living in a fantasy world of liberalism. There is nothing you can do about it. The debate you are contemplating will be a losing battle with this person, they will always change the criteria as soon as you show him wrong.
Be honest I think President Nixon was most corrupt
If you talking about being traitor Clinton and Carter adminiation could tie for both
And more on the way, I hope. Like The Hildabeaste (campaign finance crimes, Barrett report).
I suspect twenty years from now Xlinton will hold the all time record for most administration employees indicted.
Just get liquored up and forget about it.
Long article about it here:
GOOGLE is your friend!!!
If you're talking financial corruption, it's probably a tie between Grant and Harding.
Your friend is probably not willing, or perhaps capable, of defining his terms.
Just agree with your family member and be smug about it, that usually gets them annoyed pretty good. Also you can let him know that even though he and liberals like him are wrong, the president will continue to do whatever he can to protect every American, not just those that agree with him. And then you can take his lunch from him and eat it.
hahaha that's the best answer when dealing with liberal family members
Give me a break. Even Travelgate, one of Clinton's lesser scandals, was more damaging than Watergate.
Totally agree. Why talk politics during the holidays?
hmmmm....very wise analysis.
Nixon just wanted to sic the IRS on his political enemies.
President Clinton and her husband DID sic the IRS on dozens of their political enemies.
Actually here's the sad truth. The Bush Administration isn't corrupt, in fact it has been refreshingly honest regarding some of the problems our nation faces, although I disagree strongly with the nonexistent stance on illegal immigration. It is Congress that has pushed the envelope of corruption to the n'th degree, and both political sides at that. Makes the Roman senate in the waning days of the empire look like boy scouts. Every last one needs to be kicked out on their collective ears. Just like P.J. O'Rourke said... it's a parliament of whores.
