70. Again, complete bullshit. You stab your allies in the back, you lose your allies.
You've got some fantasy based on internet rumors alone that Bush could have been prosecuted for something. Bush and Reagan had more investigations of them than any other president/VP team in our history, and there was not enough evidence to prosecute a goddamned thing, especially after Bush pardoned all the Iran/Contra figures who could have been forced to testify against him. There was no secret knowledge Clinton had that would have but BushCo in jail.

Clinton didn't roll over, he performed miracles for our side considering what he had to work with, and if you don't understand how much he accomplished, then you don't understand government, politics, America, liberalism, or any other goddamn thing. That goofy-assed fantasy that he could prosecuted Bush and won some sense of approval from the public and used that approval to force America to do what it refused to do is delusional. It causes harm, and does NOTHING to help us.

I used to think the Republicans were the enemy. Now I get it. Liberals and progressives fail because too damn many of them are too fucking stupid to understand when they are winning. They want people who tell them they are pretty rather than people who get things done. We deserve Obama, because we like crying about what we didn't get more than actually getting as much as we want. If he loses we can cry, if he wins we can scream "BETRAYAL!" when he governs like his voting record.

Clinton accomplished more for liberals than anyone since LBJ, and before that, FDR. And he did it without getting us into another Viet Nam, even though he was being pressured to. Smoke that for a while.
