Gene Kizer Biography

Title:
Freelance writer
Position:
Con to the question "Was Bill Clinton a Good President?"
Reasoning:

“People hated Clinton and still do because the entire time he was president, he was a monumental LIAR. His ‘Slick Willie’ moniker is true, but understates his level of dishonesty…

Clinton is probably the best pure ‘politician’ in American history, but that is no compliment. It’s a testament to his skill as a liar and ability to get away with it (I’m surprised he didn’t bite off that lower lip). Just imagine the sincerity of a Ronald Reagan in comparison to Slick Willie…

If it had not been for the anomaly of Ross Perot, we would never have had to endure Clinton. Clinton’s re-election occurred because of the power of incumbency, but even then, he did not get a majority of the popular vote.”
