According to a new Zogby poll, 45% of Americans fear high levels of corruption if Hillary Clinton returns to office.
What? I’m sorry, maybe I didn’t hear correctly? As opposed to the low levels of corruption we are enjoying now?
The tripling of paid lobbyists on K Street? The ethics ‘reform’ that means politicians are still enjoying lunches and paid vacations from those lobbyists? A representative soliciting a teen page for sex? No-bid contracts offered to the vice president’s old company? Leaking the name of a CIA operative to exact revenge on her truth-telling husband? Congressional votes in exchange for pork/lobby money? Who is being kidded?
Bill Clinton’s presidency was a little before my time. But getting blown by a White House intern does not hurt the country, or its finances, or take money from its tax payers. I cannot believe the Clintons had scandals to match these.
I mean maybe there will be corruption under Hillary Clinton but can it possibly top the amount now? Will there be less corruption under McCain or Obama or Edwards?
