Monica Lewinsky: A Political Card 20 Years Later

By: Lacy Langley - January 27, 2014

Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton are in the news! No, this isn’t a 90s flashback.

Thanks to Rand Paul, their shenanigens really are back in the headlines. In an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, he declared that Hillary’s possible occupation of the White House in 2016 would give ol’ Bill a means to take up his old rascally ways.

This was in agreement with Sen. Paul’s wife, Kelley, who is quoted in an interview with Vogue, as saying:

“Bill Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky should complicate his return to the White House, even as first spouse. I would say his behavior was predatory, offensive to women.”

He also said that electing Hillary would basically nullify The Left’s claim that Republicans are waging a so-called “War on Women”.

“One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses should not prey on young interns in their office. And I think really the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this. He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior….. Then they (the Democrats) have the gall to stand up and say, ‘Republicans are having a war on women.’ ”

He then added, “It’s not Hillary’s fault, but it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history.”

He also stated, “in my state, you know, people tend to sort of frown upon that. You know, if there were someone in my community who did that, they would be socially — we would dissociate from somebody who would take advantage of a young women in the workplace.”

Paul, a likely frontrunner for the GOP nomination for President in 2016, was quicky refuted in his claim that media gave Bill a pass when it came to coverage of the scandal in the 90s.

Senate Majority Whip Sen Dick Durbin swiftly rebutted that claim and addressed the fact that we all remember Bill Clinton’s sexual behavior being “litigated in the public square for over a decade” and the Lewinsky situation is over and done with. He said America has shifted their focus to other matters.

This is true. Monica Lewinsky-type scandals and Bill’s wiley ways are really the least of our concerns if Hillary wins.

“Let’s judge Hillary Clinton based on her talents and her vision of America should she choose to run for president,” Durbin said.

That’s what we should be concerned about.

    Rand Paul is jealous.

  • Sad America

    Here is what is sad about America. We spent twice as much money investigating Monica than we did on 9/11. Really think about that and what that tells you.

    • dean

      What was there to litigate? Bill Clinton looked us all in the eye and said he did not have sex with that woman. End of story…

      • Gabby

        Dean please, you would and probably have done the same thing to your wife/girlfriend. Most men cheat. Some are just better at hiding it.

        • dean

          Please Gabby, do not dare make assumptions about me. I have NEVER cheated on the women in my life. That's not how I was made. It would dishonor me to be a cheater and dishonor her. It is just so infuriating to see how partisan these issues are, as long as you are a democrat and have the right view on abortion, you can do whatever the hell you want, to whomewver you want, and you all on the left look the other way. had Clinton been a republican he would have been hounded out of office with two weeks, with thousands on leftist women protesting on pennsylvania avenue until he was gone. the Liberal mdia would not have stopped unti he was gone. The double standard hipocrisy is stunning. But that is the way it is. Maybe you cheat, gabby on your relationships, but do not presume i do.

        • @Gabby

          I have never cheated on a woman either. In fact, I have had more married and attached women hit on me than you can imagine. Go look at all the porn out on the net. There are millions of women doing porn. Either professionally or just for fun. Women should get mad at other women. The fact is that your girlfriend will screw you over in a heartbeat if she has the chance. Go to a club and see for yourself.

    • @Sad America

      That really is sad when you think about it. Because of 9/11 we have been at war for 13 years, over 2 million people have died, and there is no end in sight. The next country we will invade is Iran – it is all being set up for that. Yet, we spend twice as much on a woman who sucked a dick.

      Bottom line is that they didn't want to find out the truth about 9/11 because they know it leads right back to the US.

      We did 9/11 it is that simple.

  • C Avila

    what president has not had some kind of affair or scandal? why don't they leave her alone.

  • Nicole

    I think that if Rand Paul's platform needs commentary on the actions of a president 4 terms, and a lifetime of change ago, then he might want to rethink his run for office. We need a president that is forward thinking and providing innovative ideas to better improve out country and future. That can't be done while reminiscing about past presidential philandering. Get some new material and spend more of your time laying out how you can improve our country instead of worrying about what Clinton is or was doing 15 years ago.

  • Barbara

    Rand Paul is truly heinous. Leave that poor girl alone! Slick Willie should have and now you rand paul too? What makes you any different from Bill Clinton?

  • http://yahoo brenda mills

    the issue is that Hillary supported her husband and smeared & demonized every woman that he preyed upon…. she ALWAYS portrayed bill as the innocent victim….some of these women are now deceased from auto accidents, plane crashes, suicide, etc.

  • Donna

    Bill has the worst taste in women. Barbara Walters fawned over this obese Jewish girl. People wanted to know what lipstickshe used. Would Barbara have fawned if it were a gentile girl?

  • Mo

    Really Rand!!! Im not a Demo or Repub but a story from 20 years ago??? Sorry to say that you are your fathers son and you are not taken seriously. Why dont you talk about the false war in Iraq where many of my fellow servicemen were killed? Where are the WMD's? It all boils down to Rand ranting!!!! Oh, I havent seen the Canadian Senator ranting too often after the "green eggs and ham" event.

  • Perspective

    All politicians are liars. Democrats and Republicans are EXACTLY the same behind closed doors. Both parties work together to divide the masses.

    I agree with the person above that it is outrageous that we spent twice as much money on Monica than we did on 9/11. That is the real crime. I couldn't care less who sleeps with whom. Right now, there are millions of people screwing and millions of girls sucking dick. Does it impact me? Hell no. Do I care? Hell no. Should you? Hell no. Those are personal relationships. That is all.

    But 9/11 did impact us and it will impact my children and grand children and their children. My God, all the problems of today go back to 9/11. This country is falling apart because of it.

  • Vote Them All Out

    I vote that we should disband Congress. All of them. Vote them all out. It is obvious that no one is doing anything for the people.

    Monica is she helping you?
    Bill is he helping you?
    Rand is he helping you?
    Obama is he helping you?
    Bush did he help you?

    I listen to all these comments and people fight just because a person belongs to a different party. But the reality is that both parties are the same. At the end of the day, no one is doing anything for the people. You want positive change? Get rid of the parties.
