As the nation's news media and political commentators prepare to cover the upcoming Democratic National Convention beginning on Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, there's enormous excitement over the scheduled appearance of former President Bill Clinton, known to his detractors as "Slick Willie." The convention scheduled to begin right after Labor Day will undoubtedly cause the political left to swoon over the two Democrats hailed as great orators -- Clinton and President Barack Obama.
"To many Democrats and newsroom denizens, Obama remains a man of mystery with fact and fiction so mixed together that few understand his motivations, but Bill Clinton is an open book,"said former political consultant Steven Bonerz. "And these news people -- especially the males -- giggle like schoolgirls when the name of Clinton enters the conversation."
"The hero worship that follows Bill Clinton is mysterious since so much is known about him. Actually, too much is known about him," he said.
Bonerz points to the Monica Lewinsky scandal as being merely a diversion from the serious character flaws that some psychologists claim is symptomatic of a sociopath. Clinton was accused of raping a woman, yet the feminists love him. He's been accused of being a powerful man who sexually harassed powerless women. And yet the liberal-left, moderates and even some conservatives figuratively worship the ground on which he walks.
Add to that list obstruction of justice, perjury and witness intimidation, and one has the picture of a criminal cad rather than a great statesman, adds Anita McDonald, a former police officer who specialized in crimes against female victims.
"A woman [Kathleen Willey] with a husband who was out of work and suffering from illness goes to see then President Clinton in 1993, and he gropes her? He attempts to have sex with her in the Oval Office? The same Oval Office from which he sent servicemen to their deaths in Somalia," notes McDonald.
"He is the first President since Andrew Johnson to be impeached and he was disbarred; he headed a White House that laid the foundation for the corruption that exists today in the Obama White House," claims Bonerz.
But political opponents are not the only ones who are willing to point out the alleged corruption in Clinton's character.
Even his own FBI director, Louis Freeh, says the former president let down the American people and the families of American victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia during the Clinton administration.
After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing at Khobar Towers -- a bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds -- Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in their custody.
Freeh writes in his book, My FBI: “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.”
Said Freeh, “That's a fact that I am reporting.”
Freeh says he was determined to stay on as FBI director until President Clinton left office so that Clinton could not appoint his successor.
“I was concerned about who he would put in there as FBI director because [Clinton] had expressed antipathy for the FBI, for the director. [So] I was going to stay there and make sure he couldn't replace me,” Freeh told Mike Wallace of CBS' 60 Minutes.
"And this is the man the Democratic Party holds up as a national treasure? This is the standard bearer for the feminist movement? It's similar to the late Senator Ted Kennedy 'the liberal lion of the Senate' who was adored by women's groups such as NOW despite his allowing a young girl to slowly drown in a submerged car he drove into the water and never once did he try to save her. And he waited hours before notifying anyone," notes former NYPD detective and intelligence analyst Anthony Ulasewicz, who investigated the Mary Jo Kopechne case.
"Clinton's greatest gift to youngsters is the notion that oral copulation is not sex. That's some legacy for the Democrat's most popular politician," Bonerz said.
He holds a bachelor of science in Criminal Justice from Southwest University and SCI Technical School in New York City and completed training at the NYC Police Academy, FBI Continuing Education Program, and the Certified Protection Professional (CPP) of the American Society for Industrial Security.
