ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The photo that accompanied “Obama, Clinton hide tension behind smiles at medal ceremony” (Web, Nov. 21) is far more humorous than serious. It shows two men who really dislike each other, trying to look friendly for a group of attendees who would rather eat green flies than be in their presence. I don’t think I could do that. President Obama’s praising of former President Bill Clinton for all the good that he does is enough to gag a maggot. Mr. Clinton is doing penance, pure and simple, and will for the rest of his days for his egregious lifestyle.

History repeats itself. In this case, we have an unknown and unaccomplished token winner of the Nobel Peace Prize presenting a serial adulterer with the highest award given to a civilian of the United States. I am surprised that the medal did not burst into flame when it was presented. To have Mr. Clinton and his wife on the same stage with some of the medal’s past recipients was a disgrace. The event was a slap in the face to every American citizen.
