Reagan wore coat, tie in Oval Office

My father, Ronald Reagan, held the presidency in such honor and reverence
that he was never in the Oval Office without a coat and tie. Bill Clinton has
such disrespect for the presidency that he was often in the Oval Office without
his pants.

The president who thus exposed himself has now been exposed to the entire
world: Behold Bill Clinton, the shining hero of liberalism! Behold the
self-anointed messiah of the progressive movement! Behold the leader of “the most
ethical administration in history.”

Though it is too early to say if he will be impeached, the jury is in on
Bill Clinton’s character. We know beyond a reasonable doubt that Bill Clinton
is an out-of-control sexual predator who publicly posed as the feminists’ best
friend while secretly using Monica Lewinsky.

His real attitude toward women comes through loud and clear now.

With their standard-bearer exposed as a yet-to-be-convicted felon, the
Democratic Party has no one to lift up as an example and a hero. So, in a
squalid attempt to justify the most corrupt President in American history,
Bill Clinton’s defenders now drag the entire history and tradition of the
presidency into the gutter. They have slimed Washington, Jefferson, FDR, Eisenhower,
and even Ronald Reagan.

Typical of these defenders of the indefensible is Mario Cuomo, who on CNN’s
“Larry King Live” said, “I liked President Reagan. I certainly wouldn’t
have trusted him if he said to me I never had an extramarital affair.” (On
behalf of the Reagan family, I have publicly demanded an apology from former Gov.
Cuomo. We shall see if he has the decency to offer one.)

Those who claim the President’s sex life is personal and none of our
business conveniently forget one thing: A President whose sex life is outrageous,
out of control, and out of bounds is a threat not only to the nation’s morals, but
to the nation’s security. During l’affair Lewinsky, Clinton was clearly aware
of this fact, which underscores (if underscoring is needed) his utter
recklessness.

In the 445-page Starr report, we read that Bill Clinton told Monica
Lewinsky that “he suspected that a foreign embassy (he did not specify which one)
was tapping his telephones, and he proposed cover stories. If ever
questioned, she should say that the two of them were just friends. If anyone ever asked
about their phone sex, she should say that they knew their calls were being
monitored all along, and the phone sex was just a put-on.”

Does this sound like a man who is worthy to be the leader of the Free
World?

The Code of Federal Regulations provides rules for issuing security
clearances. Is Bill Clinton qualified to hold the most sensitive national security post
in our government? Read this excerpt from the federal regulations-and you tell me:

    Code of Federal Regulations, Title 32, Chapter 1, Part 147
    SEXUAL BEHAVIOR

    “Sexual behavior is a security concern if it involves a criminal offense,
    indicates a personality or emotional disorder, subjects the individual to
    undue influence or coercion, or reflects lack of judgment or discretion.

    “NOTE: The adjudicator should also consider guidelines pertaining to
    criminal conduct (criterion J); or emotional, mental, and personality disorders
    (criterion I), in determining how to resolve the security concerns raised
    by sexual behavior.

    “END NOTE: (Sexual orientation or preference may not be used as a basis for
    or a disqualifying factor in determining a person’s eligibility for a security
    clearance.)

    “Conditions that could raise a security concern and may be disqualifying
    include:

    “(1) sexual behavior of a criminal nature, whether or not the individual
    has been prosecuted;

    “(2) compulsive or addictive sexual behavior when the person is unable to
    stop a pattern of self-destructive or high-risk behavior or that which is
    symptomatic of a personality disorder;

    “(3) sexual behavior that causes an individual to be vulnerable to undue
    influence or coercion;

    “(4) sexual behavior of a public nature and/or that which reflects lack of
    discretion or judgment.”

Federal regulations couldn’t be more clear: Bill Clinton wouldn’t even
qualify for a national security clearance.
