To the people who incessantly attack the president for his “lack of truthfulness” and the scandals of his administration or the Republican Party: Either you have a short memory or you just can’t recall how corrupt the previous administration was.
The Clinton administration claimed it was going to be an ethical administration. Right. Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, and the headlines were filled with scandal after scandal.
Do you remember what led to the Democrats’ losing control of Congress? The House banking scandal and Dan Rostenkowski going to jail were just the tip of the iceberg.
I laugh out loud when I read comments such as, “I cannot recall any administration so steeped in alleged corruption and scandal as those currently in power” (1/28, Letters). Eddie Clay should take off his partisan glasses or go back and study the history of the Clinton administration and the 40 years the Democrats controlled Congress.
