During the 2008 Presidential election, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama took time off the Campaign trail to attend the Alfred P. Smith Memorial dinner in New York. When it came time for the roasting, Senator McCain took the floor first and made fun of everyone from Senators Obama, Hillary Clinton and New York’s senior Senator Chuck Schumer. When it came to Senator Obamas choice “the chosen one” made joke of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s changing of the rules to give himself the opportunity to run for a third term and then said “when Bill Clinton heard that, he said, can anyone do that?” Boy, was he right?
President William Jefferson Clinton seems to have forgot something in the White House and guess what? He wants to go back there for another 4 years and get it. President Clinton has written a new book in which he dishes ‘good wisdom” to politicians, “just say, I don’t remember” he advised. He is basically telling politicians on how to Monica Lewinskyed the country, it worked for me. Why he might ask himself would it not work for others. He seems bent on avenging his wife’s devastating loss to a political neophyte in the Democratic Presidential primaries. So what does Mr. Clinton propose in his new book? Your guess is as good as mine, but sadly it is not a guess. Mr. Clinton is proposing changing the constitution to allow presidents to run for a third term! What does that mean, it means the United States will be owing Mr. Clinton 4 more years, that will permit him to go back to the White House to pick up whatever it is he either forget in the Presidential private quarters, the Oval Office or maybe he needs to get into the Lincoln Bedroom to do what he mistakenly did in the Oval Office. Is he for real? Is he serious? Oh yes, he is serious, throughout the constitution and lets write another one so that we can just make the rules we want. I guess Mr. Clinton is making that suggestion with an eye to the future that the Democrat will retain the Presidency and Senate and probably take over the House also. President Clinton is like that commercial that says “engineered to amaze” He is always amazing, either by going negative on campaigns, lying to the country or disgracing the office of the President, he is always amazing. Yes, the man that brought you NAFTA and sent about 700,000 jobs across the border according to Mike Thompson of the website freep.com, wants to come back and export the remaining jobs to other countries. Thanks Mr. President, but know, I think we are fine with the 8 years. I do not care if it is a Democratic or Republican President, 8 years is enough, and as disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff said in a 60 Minutes interview, after their time of service in Washington, politicians should go home and find a real job just like other Americans.
Perhaps, our former presidents can learn from one of Mexico’s former President Ernesto Zedillo; After serving 6 years as President of Mexico, Ernesto Zedillo took a job as Director of Yale University Center for the Study of Globalization and is also a Professor of International Economics and Politics at Yale. I like what President Clinton is doing with his Global Initiative using other people’s money he is raised using his position as a Former President and perhaps as the husband of a the Secretary of State. Does Mr. Clinton really want to become President again? Well, if you ask him, you will get the answer he has been advising politicians to use which Herman Cain is perfecting “I don’t remember”.
