It’s a great thing about not being office—you can just say whatever you want.
It depends on what the meaning of is is.
I got burnt out on Bill Clinton’s sex life back in 1998 when we all still knew what the meaning of is is. Now that his wife is running for President, the Clinton family peccadilloes are moving front and center again.
I suppose there is a young cohort of new voters who don’t remember the “bimbo eruptions” of the ’90s, and they probably should be made aware of the Hillary’s enabling of her husband’s behavior. But how about we keep that as a sideshow?
There’s enough wrong with Hillary’s performance in the Senate and the State Department to disqualify her, and her participation in their family foundation raises further questions about her fitness to serve as President. Hillary deserves the opportunity to fail on her own.
After all, America deserves a President who knows what ISIS is.
Writing about President Obama, Glenn Reynolds notes—
So a couple of weeks ago he was being called incompetent by Jimmy Carter. Now he’s being lectured on commitment by Bill Clinton.
Bill Clinton says that voting should be as easy as buying an “assault weapon.” I doubt that he means a real assault rifle. They are legally machine guns and require several months of paperwork, background checks by the ATF, a $250 tax stamp, and more. He probably just meant a run-of-the-mill modern sporting rifle such as an AR-15.
In Maryland, AR-15s are regulated weapons. Purchase requires presenting photo ID and passing a background check through the NICS. After that goes through, there’s more state paperwork and a State Police background check which typically take a couple of months. However, beginning in October, further purchases of AR-15s will be banned.
Somehow, I don’t think Mr. Clinton meant that currently registered Maryland voters could continue to vote if they presented photo ID and passed a background check at the polls, but that after 1 October no more voters would be registered.
But if you think he meant that Second Amendment rights should be as well protected as voting rights, you’ve been inhaling the stuff he says he didn’t.
I guess I’ve got a few more cogent months left. I don’t turn 65 until New Year’s Eve, and, like President Clinton, I don’t qualify for full Social Security benefits until I’m 66.
UPDATE–Joe Biden is 69. I suppose that explains things.
