I don’t often come to the defense of Former President Clinton, but I do think he is getting some undeserved flack over the comments he made in South Carolina yesterday.
The former president told a group of veterans Friday in Charlotte, N.C.: “I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country. And people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics.”
I think “Barry O’s ” team is a little too sensitive on this matter. It is not a Zero Sum Game where John McCain & Hillary Clinton are the only two people who love this country. Now I can see why he might be a little “sensitive” seeing as his pastor has recently been the focus of some very deserved critical comments about his “preaching” and fanning the race flames that will result in a problem for both the Democrat Primary and the election. But I don’t think you can tar Mr. Clinton with that brush, there are plenty of other issues that we can comment on concerning the former President & his wife, but I think on this one Bill should get a pass.
