I miss Bill Clinton
I forward this to all my pals because it is mildly amusing.
However, I note in the news yesterday that Bill Clinton was rated by a national poll as the third highest rating as Best President of the United States, following Ronald Reagan and Abraham Lincoln. Don't remember the fourth rated but the fifth was George Washington.
This poll at least vindicates lyle in that I have maintained from the get-go that Clinton will go down as one of our greatest Presidents. I really don't care, nor never have cared, what he does with his private life. None of my business. I don't particularly admire his taste in women but, then, that is his business as well.
I think, overall, he governed well. He is one of the most articulate and persuasive speakers I've ever heard. He is handsome (well, he's no lyle davis, but still . . .), seems to get the job done, and hires talented people to assist him.
It will come as no surprise to folks who know lyle and evelyn that evelyn totally disagrees with lyle as to the merits of the beloved President Clinton. (I'm not sure, but I think she's a rock-ribbed Republican).
So . . . different strokes for different folks. That's my take on Clinton, here is someone elses:
It doesn't matter what party you belong to-this is hilarious. From a show on Canadian TV, there was a black comedian who said he misses Bill Clinton.
"Yep, that's right - I miss Bill Clinton! He was the closest thing we ever got to having a real black man as President.
Number 1 - He played the sax.
Number 2 - He smoked weed.
Number 3 - He had his way with lotsa ugly white women.
Even now? Look at him...his wife works, and he don't! And, he gets a check from the government every month. Manufacturers announced today that they will be stocking America 's shelves this week with " Clinton Soup," in honor of one of the nations' distinguished men. It consists primarily of a weenie in hot water.
Chrysler Corporation is adding a new car to its line to honor Bill Clinton. The Dodge Drafter will be built in Canada .
When asked what he thought about foreign affairs, Clinton replied, "I don't know, I never had one."
The Clinton revised judicial oath: "I solemnly swear to tell the truth as I know it, the whole truth as I believe it to be, and nothing but what I think you need to know."
Clinton will be recorded in history as the only President to do Hanky Panky between the Bushes."
