"Why not 'Slick Georgie?'"

Well, it's sorta off the mark. At worst Bush didn't show up at a time when the National Guard didn't give a damn where he was. Even that's not proven.

A central argument in Clinton's case was that he deliberately lied to Col. Eugene Holmes about his intention to enter the ROTC just so he could avoid the draft. You may have seen Col. Holmes affidavit (click here).

Some have questioned Holmes motive for issuing this affidavit when he did, but that sort of begs the question. Holmes's military record is essentially John Kerry's and John McCain's combined, a highly decorated former prisoner of war with 33 years military service. If he just wanted to slam Clinton all he needed to do was issue a statement. I don't see that kind of man lying under oath when it wasn't necessary.

Since since it's basically Holmes's word against Clinton's you'll have to decide for yourself who to believe. War hero Holmes or Clinton who received a heavy fine and lost his license to practice law when he perjured himself during the Paula Jones Sexual Harassment trial. "Slick Willie" spent a lot of years earning his nickname.
