COLUMN: Memo to Clinton: No, you can't buy me a drink
By Joshua Skolnick
Brown Daily Herald (Brown U.)
(U-WIRE) PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Watching the State of the Union address on Tuesday night, I experienced a fundamental change in the way I view our country. As a columnist, I spend a good amount of time gauging where we are as a country, and where we are going.
Last year, I wrote a column explaining exactly why Bill Clinton was correct in stating that the State of the Union is the strongest it has ever been in his farewell speech. Today, I realized exactly what was so bankrupt and empty about that statement. Today, Bill Clinton's America was finally swept into the dustbin of history as little more than an old page from a tabloid newspaper. Like an old relationship that was shallow and based on sex, Clinton felt like nothing compared to what we have now. The America of vacillation, of two-faced explanations, of posturing and politicking, now seems to have been put to bed. The New America is an America that is confident of its values. At Brown, many, like Clinton, are lost. We may spend endless time debating values, debating what the meaning of "is" is or the various ways we can deconstruct anything that anyone says. This is all very interesting, but when it comes down to it, and I am asked what my values are, I find that they were summed up beautifully by George W. Bush. His speech made me swell with love of country, and disdain for college. That speech made me want to live in America, not at Brown. I had been duped into falling in love with Clinton's America. Bush's speech made me realize just how wrong I was.
If Clinton was a womanizer (the "if" is probably unnecessary) than I am a woman. He got me. He made me think that this country's welfare was based on our sky-high stock market prices. He took me out to dinner, paid for everything, and told me that I had beautiful eyes. I was a fool not to notice the mischief going on beneath the table.
We were all taken in by Clinton. Year after year, he gave the most boring, detailed, laundry-list State of the Union addresses, and yet we clung to his every word. We scoffed at critics such as John McCain, who rightly stated that Clinton conducted a "photo-op foreign policy." We collectively stared into his eyes while terrorist camps were being armed in Afghanistan. This is not to be taken lightly. Our foolishness, in part, led to our vulnerability on Spet. 11. If the Clinton Era hadn't gotten us drunk on the "good times", we could have pressured our leaders to make terror-fighting a top-priority. Instead, we woke up with our clothes off.
In walked George W. Bush. On Tuesday night, he helped us put our clothes back on. He made us realize that we were more than our GDP, more than the latest tabloid. He gave us the shocking realization that this country is built on actual values. Free speech. Private property. Compassion for those who are less fortunate. Few other countries in the world with such power and prestige at their hand would actually mention, in what was the first assessment of the state of the union since a major foreign invasion, that we wanted to try to understand the peoples and the countries where this hatred is bred.
The speech on Tuesday night was like a cool glass of water the morning after a frat party. You can't believe you went home with that girl, can't believe you drank so much, but you're glad to finally be back home.
Unfortunately, Brown University doesn't quite feel like home. Essentially, the average Brown student is like a girl who has one bad experience with a male and then swears males off forever. When America commits one atrocity somewhere in Peru in 1979, or America is a bit too harsh on terrorists who, if not caught, would have tried to kill us, they swear off America forever. The fact is, America is a great nation. Certainly this is an opinion, but I look at the facts and feel proud of who we are, and who we are aiming to be.
When I remembered my statements about Bill Clinton's last State of the Union address, it was like reading an old love letter that you sent to a real whore of a girl. The bad news is, at Brown, that girl's best friend lives next door. The good news is, now, like a guest on Jerry Springer, I've got a new man.
My guess is Joshua will be getting his eviction notice from his lefty profs as soon as they can flunk him out. Actually, it is hard to believe this got published at Brown. Maybe there is hope for free speech.
So Mr. Skolnick is using all this verbiage to tell us he felt, ahem! "copulated by" clinton?
( make that "the clintons & all their enablers..." )
Wonder if he ever gave a thought to how all of us on the Right felt during the eight-year clinton gang-rape of America?
Well at least Bill Clinton finally has his legacy.
America accepted Clinton's proposal to us, then after eight years of him not being faithful to us, perverting our children, and spending their future security we left him. Only then did we find out that he wasn't even who he said he was, the whole marriage had been a complete and utter fraud, and he secretly sold videos of us to anyone who could come up with the cash.
That "clinton legacy" has been forged link by sordid link....

If anyone ever again asks the question as to how a Hitler could come to power in an otherwise civilized society, I will point to the Clinton years.
Repeat lies until they are truths, have powerful friends in the media who will do your bidding, and have enough friends at the pressure points of the judiciary.
Some may think this an overstatement, especially liberal New York Jews, but it will only further confirm their utter cluelessness.

As good a metaphor as any for the contempt all the clinton's pack of enablers & shills had for "the rest of America...."
I think the author is speaking for many folks, however. I always thought Clinton was revolting, both as a person and a pol. I was always truly stunned by the fact that so many (even seemingly intelligent) people found him attractive, seriously attractive, on both levels. I think they're all having a bit of morning-afteritis right now. I hope so, at least.
What is this "We" crap? I am, or actually have been for years, sick and disgusted at this kind of crapola. There are tens and tens of millions of people out there that, like me, saw immediatly in 1992 that Clinton was a lying, two faced, spineless weasel without an ounce of backbone, ethics or integrity. And that was before I knew anything about his womanizing and rapes. As years went by, this worthless individual did nothing but cement this opinion of him. So knock off this "we" BS. Just because there were (are?) tens and tens of millions of people out there that were (are?) ignorant, gullible and/or stupid enough to be fooled by this con-man, don't comfort yourself by say "we all" were that ignorant, gullible and/or stupid.
To the demorat socialist this is HATE SPEECH!
