Why Is Rand Paul Talking About
Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky?

Atlantic Magazine, by Peter Beinart

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/10/2014 11:26:13 AM

In recent weeks, one Republican after another has come forward to rebut the Democratic claim that the GOP is waging a “war on women.” The responses have ranged from homey (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers responding to Barack Obama’s State of the Union address by noting that she’d given birth just eight weeks earlier) to creepy (former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee saying Democrats think women can’t control their “libidos.”) But perhaps most puzzling has been the tack taken by Rand Paul, who in interview after interview after interview has accused Democrats of “hypocrisy” for claiming to support women’s rights while giving

I think it could be a signal to Hillary that the "war on women" as an issue for her won´t fly because of her husband´s behavior and he is willing to bring it up as often as needed IF she tries to use it.
GOP candidates can also find and illustrate other ways Dems are the ones who have a war on women in their actions as opposed to their statements. GOP should steer clear of anything to do with female sexuality, but they can turn the tables on the Dems on this nonsense if they are smart.

i´m not sure, either, why Rand Paul keeps bringing this up. Let it go, now. There are worse things to fear from Hillary Clinton than Bill living in the White House.

"Nuts & sluts", "Bimbo Eruptions", "vast right-wing conspiracy", "drag a dollar bill through a trailer park" - all said or orchestrated by HRC in order to facilitate a sexual predator. She may not have invented blaming the victim, but she did her best to perfect it. So, yes, perhaps "Republican war on women" might not be the road she wants to go down.

The feminist movement officially died when their leaders did not condemn Bill Clinton, proving that the movement was only about liberal politics, not the oppressed status of vulnerable young female interns.

I agree with poster #1. The purpose is to defuse the phony war on women theme.

Perhaps he is talking about those two, because it is unbelievable the such behavior would happen and is more unbelievable that the media would treat it like eating birthday cake at a party. We need to be reminded that the natural flow of life does not include such behavior nor does it include acceptance of same.

FTA:´perhaps most puzzling has been the tack taken by Rand Paul´.

There is nothing puzzling about this. He is saying he will not stand by and let Republicans be accused of treating women badly by a party that has condoned actual harrassment and abuse by their most popular leaders.

He keeps bringing it up because reporters were asking him about the war on women. He´s made his point and people are listening. He´s also on a mission to make the Clintons as toxic as they should be as fundraisers for Democrats.

Along with that, he´s helping to make all the war on women activists toxic since they swoon happily over any appearance by that disgusting old letch.

I don´t agree with Beinart´s logic leap that Americans didn´t care about Clinton´s predatory behavior *at the time* so therefore they would care even less now.
*At the time* the WH spin machines were operating in overdrive and the gullible public was subjected to 24/7 talking head explanations & justifications for Clinton´s inappropriate sexual conduct. Remember how we were told it was a personal issue and the family needed time to deal with it together? Remember the shot of Chelsea walking between her father and mother as they headed for a respite of soul-searching and strength-gathering?
No way does any of that staged stuff translate to "the public thinks predatory behavior is OK."

#7 is exactly right. Rand Paul is taking the fight directly to the Democrats and their Princess Hillary. Question should be: Where are the Establishment Republicans? Hiding in the corner working on the most important question of the day: Immigration. Not.

This is a good first round. Thank you, Rand.

#7 is right.

Have you ever noticed that when Republicans tell the truth about Democrats, the rinos attack the Republicans? Their twisted reasoning is that we can´t win by telling the truth. Their great idea is to *attempt* (doesn´t work) to out-liberal the liberals and WAIT for some murky future (after the next election; no, after this next election; no...) when "the time is right".

Now that is puzzling. Hmm. With friends like rinos, who needs liberals?

Why? Pretty simple, actually. Since Bill Clinton, anything goes in the presidency – until the last few years when that’s begun turning around. Marriage is coming back into style. Sleeping around isn’t IN style. More and more pro athletes point to the sky (and God) after a home run or TD run. In a word, DECENCY. It’s coming back. Rand Paul is reminding everybody just how indecent and downright pornographic the Clintons were before and would be again.

Your assumptions are wrong.

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
