What's the craziest/strangest/dumbest thing you've heard a right winger try to blame on Clinton?
At work today our resident neo-con was going on about software problems on the work computers and started in about how the place was as bad as the government was while Clinton was President. I generally try not to do that politics stuff at work and leave it at the door as much as possible, otherwise I would've asked him, "So now it's Clinton's fault we're having this problem with software?"

It got me to wondering what the craziest/strangest/dumbest thing others here have heard a right winger blame on the Clinton administration?

6. Right winger only? I wanted to describe the stuff that was said at DU last spring.
Less than a year ago my fellow DUers were blaming the Clintons for

1) Vince Foster

2)The Savings and Loan debacle of the 1980s

3) Bush v. Gore

4) Ruby Ridge

5) The invasion of Iraq

6) Poverty in America

The list goes on and on. I should have saved some of those posts. They were priceless.

10. You're being a real smartass about #6
As someone who was personally put into poverty--and got NO help--as a direct result of Clinton's policies, I can assure you that he did a lot of damage to the poor.

Even Bonzo Reagan didn't slash the safety net as Clinton did with his "welfare reform".

9. The war in Somalia
Speculative blame-making is one thing. Was Bill Clinton's policies somehow the root cause of 9/11? the Iraq war? Our current economic problems? We can argue about it, but ultimately the answer is "I'unno!" 'cause that sort of shit is damn near impossible to tally.

But when a Wringer comes up and tells me that Bill Clinton got us into a loswer war in Somalia, I can drown them in facts and evidence. Sorry buckaroos, it was Bush.

14. The 1993 WTC bombing. They give Idiot George a pass
Edited on Wed Mar-11-09 07:29 AM by Vickers
for the 9/11 attacks which happened almost 8 months after he took (literally) office, but blame Clinton entirely for an attack that happened 37 days after he became President.

:crazy:
