Profiles in Courage . . . . William Jefferson Clinton

Amazing how in a speech to nominate Barack Obama, President Clinton effectively negates the entire liberal story line about evil, heartless Republicans coming out of every other speech, sound bite and random utterance at the Democrat National Convention:

  • Republican President Dwight David Eisenhower was good for black Americans and civil rights
  • Republican President Ronald Reagan was good for welfare recipients
  • Republican President George H.W. Bush was good for education and for the poor people of New Orleans and Haiti
  • Republican President George W. Bush was good for AIDS victims and for the poor people of New Orleans and Haiti

In President Clinton’s own words:

“Though I often disagree with Republicans, I never learned to hate them the way the far right that now controls their party seems to hate President Obama and the Democrats. After all, President Eisenhower sent federal troops to my home state to integrate Little Rock Central High and built the interstate highway system. And as governor, I worked with President Reagan on welfare reform and with President George H.W. Bush on national education goals.

I am grateful to President George W. Bush for PEPFAR, which is saving the lives of millions of people in poor countries and to both Presidents Bush for the work we’ve done together after the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake.”
