My thoughts on U.S. political sex-scandals:

Standard

Very recently, there’s been a whole lot of hoopla about Herman Cain’s alleged sexual-inappropriateness, which he now has to answer for. However, he’s thus denied any & all accounts of sexual-misconduct. But, enough about that, let’s get to the nitty-gritty of this issue & and that is this:

People are becoming less concerned with a person’s moral-character, and more concerned with how a politician functions in office. Well, having considerable moral-character should/would in fact reflect in the policies that a person in the highest political office in the U.S. supports & executes, I would assume naturally.

Yet, morality is something that the U.S., along with our general global society is losing more & more by the day. You can go back as far as Thomas Jefferson, whom authored the Declaration of Independence, who was a known womanizer, and fathered several children out of wedlock with his slave, Sally Hemings. This was in fact acceptable, because at this time in American history, African slaves weren’t even regarded as complete Human beings. We can also look into the 1960’s, where President John F. Kennedy outlandishly cheated on his wife, in public at that, with no discretion what so ever on his part.

We can also reflect upon even the life of the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, whose sexscapades have become a legendary testament of how sexual-corruption has left a permanent stain on all levels of the U.S. Federal government. Then, possibly the most famous of them all is Bill Clinton, who initially denied any & all allegations that he had any sexual-contact with Monica Lewinski. But, as a result of being placed under the threat being prosecuted for purgery, as well as Presidential-Impeachment, finally fessed up to not only having an official relationship with her, about also to receiving the most famous blowjob in the U.S. of U.S. politics. And, then, we all remember the recent revelations of former U.S. Senator John Edwards, who ran for President in 2004 & ended up being John Kerry’s running mate against George W. Bush, then again in 2008, which he ended up having to bow-out of the Presidential race, cheated on his cancer-stricken wife, while actually running for President.

Next, even more recent, we have the infidelity fiascoes that have brought down former Governors James McGreevey of New Jersey & Elliot Spitzer of New York. And, then, not too long ago, there was Anthony Weiner, who just couldn’t keep his wiener off of the internet, who completely embarrassed himself, and his family, and for what?!!! Now, as recent as this year, we have an aspiring contender for the seat in the Oval Office, caught up in a sex-scandal. Herman Cain, presumably, the Barack Obama of the Republican Party, has just been red-flagged amid recent allegations of sexual-misconduct. I don’t know whether something like this will ruin his chance of going toe-to-toe with Obama, for the 2012 election, but it still looks really bad-Please, keep in mind that these guys who’ve been caught up in these scandals are not just some run of the mill politicians here, these are big-leaguers, whom have enacted & supported relevant governmental policies in their respective realms of public service, which have affected & still affects our lives as U.S. citizens.

I have the following to ask all of you: If you have individuals, like these politicians, who have been implicated/involved in various sex-scandals and/or confirmed to play significant parts in these scandals, willingly betraying their respective spouses & then lying about their wrongs when called to task for honesty, then what should make us, as U.S. citizens, think that that these same politicians would be loyal to us, as their political constituents, as we place our general trust in them to conduct honest affairs of state-How can these people be trusted with the general welfare of this nation, when they can’t even keep their penises in their pants?!!!

Think about this, people!!!

  1. Thank you for your whole effort on this site. Ellie loves setting aside time for internet research and it’s easy to see why. Many of us hear all of the compelling manner you make functional guides by means of your web site and as well improve participation from website visitors on the matter plus our own daughter is certainly being taught a lot. Have fun with the remaining portion of the new year. You have been performing a splendid job.

  2. On point! More thought out than mine… It is funny that we target politicians (or anyone in the public eye) for anything outside of their marriage, even though (as you pointed out) this country has a long history of leaders that could not respect their union with their wife. I had a professor that once said John F. Kennedy was not concerned about Martin Luther King, he did want to assist with the Civil Rights movement but at his own pace, when he saw Coretta Scott King he was then willing to meet MLK. The professors point was that if JFK did not have an attraction to her, he may have never did the little he did to assist that movement.
