pipemanid, you’re right about politicians being above the law. They have come to see themselves as an elite political class that deserve preferential treatment. Why we let them get away with it is beyond me.

If you are referring to Spitzer he was forced out and used his resignation to get out of prosecution. Their was no “right thing” in what he did. It was a self serving act and had nothing to do with being the right decision.
[QUOTE=samlar;2167239]No if she was my daughter ant the age this lady was then I would say it was her fault as much as his. As I stated he was a jerk and what he did was wrong and he should have stepped down, but it was not a impeachable thing. Gov. Spitzer did break the law and should have had to stand trial for what he did.[/QUOTE]
Lewinsky was an unpaid intern sent to the White House to learn about government while performing meaningful work. What do you think many girls would do if the President wanted them to perform sexual acts on them? Can you imagine the influence a president has over a lowly intern? Who is supposed to be the responsible person in this situation? Clinton is a sexual predator and has used his political power to get sex in any way he could. He did this for decades and some even accuse him of outright rape. His behavior goes far beyond the “jerk” level and into the criminal. I won’t even get into the trampling of the Constitution he committed even though he took an oath to defend it. Even while he was elected Governor of Arkansas he had to dodge sexual accusations and it continued through his final term as president. How can so many women be liars especially when many have substantial corroborating evident and circumstances to back up their claims? Why didn’t Truman, Eisenhower, Reagan, Carter, Bush I & II have these kind of accusations? Heck, even womanizers like Kennedy and Johnson didn’t have as much trouble. What was so special about Bill Clinton to get such accusations and in such quantity? Maybe there was more truth to them than we would want to believe.

It has been on topic through this post, IMO. I’m just showing the political bias that many have against O’Reilly by letting you defend Bill Clinton for his known behavior in sexually harassing his employees and then wanting O’Reilly crucified for behavior that wasn’t proven and only alleged. When person political bias replaces consistently applied logic then justification for a statement of condemnation loses its potency and validity.
