FORD, BUSH AND DOLE FIGHT DESPERATELY TO SAVE CLINTON | 1998-12-26
As Republican after Republican announced he would vote for impeachment in the House, one Democrat whined plaintively, "Why can't they listen to Bush and Dole?"
Bush and Dole are doing what they always do. Dole is joining with former Democratic senator Mitchell in a last desperate effort to save Clinton. Bush demanded that Republicans accept the Democratic alternative of censuring Clinton instead of impeaching him. Ford has joined Carter -- and of course Bush and Dole -- in a last desperate attempt to stop the Senate trial with a censure.
Everybody but me has forgotten it, and no one mentions it, but every time there was a confrontation between Clinton and conservative Republicans, Gerald Ford and George Bush would hold a joint press conference to support Clinton.
Not a single conservative has ever complained about this. Moderate Republican presidential nominees are SUPPOSED to stab conservatives in the back. That never prevents conservatives from nominating and supporting moderates. These moderates are always asked to speak to conservative meetings, and the conservatives stand up and applaud wildly, the daggers still in their backs.
And these same conservatives just can't wait to nominate George Bush, Junior, for president. Like all moderates, he will lose the election. Then he will begin HIS career of knifing conservatives in the back.
You can't say conservatives don't deserve it.
And there are still people who say these cowardly retards who call themselves conservatives are going to "save America!"
