Their Seven Deadly Sins

By R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.

WASHINGTON -- This week it was reported in the authoritative Capitol Hill newspaper, The Hill, that Don Van Natta Jr. and Jeff Gerth included some unsavory news about Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in Her Way, their recent book on her. Hillary, during the 1992 presidential campaign, "listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics...." Washington observers appeared shocked. Mein Gott, where have they been all these years? The Clintons have engaged in brute behavior for decades, much of it a matter of record. The Hill's report moves me to now list seven issues every American should know about the Clintons before 2008. Journalists should be particularly interested, as well as Democrats intent on avoiding a repeat of the Clinton 1990s.

1) Every Clinton Scandal of the 1990s had a precedent in the Clinton Governorship of the 1980s. Just as the Clintons abused the presidential pardon power when they left the White House and took property that was not their own, so did they abuse the pardon power and pilfer from the Governor's Mansion upon leaving it in 1981. Just as they have been caught taking money from the shadowy Norman Hsu this year and from other dubious Asian figures in the 1990s, so too were their 1980s campaigns marked by financial irregularities. The first Asian donors entered their political lives in 1986 with the Indonesian Chinese Riady family. In 2001 the Riadys paid over $8 million in FEC fines for their munificence in the 1990s. Hsu's donations are of a piece with what might be called the Clintons' "Chop Suey Connection." The Clintons dismiss all this as "old news," but that is only because they are what law enforcement officials call "repeat offenders"..........

This is the forgetfulness (among politicians and columnists) that 1100 FBI files and a pact with Satan will get you.

The Clintons dismiss all this as "old news,"

Yep. In other words, "We got away with it, so screw you."

The conservatives have adopted the position that all of the above is passe and to dwell on it is unseemly and awkward.

In my case its the realization that most RATS want someone who will steal things for them. The more crooked he is, in their minds, the better.The more you push his criminal record the higher his approval ratings go!

This should be required reading for all the Freepers here who are willing to let Hitlery be elected just so they can make some sort of “statement” to the world about their dislike for the GOP candidate. Idiotic. They have apparently forgotten what the first Clinton presidency was all about, and scandals were only the tip of the iceberg. The thought of Hitlery as our Commander-in-Chief turns my stomach and it should do the same to every single Freeper and conservative voter.

Just WHO ARE the conservative reporters with the backbone and courage to report the clinton’s wrong doings? Even the “conservative” talkers on Fox are mum when it comes to hillary and her lack of ethics as a representative of the people in NY. They don’t even talk about her thugishness and campaign lawbreaking.
