The impeachment of Bill Clinton, only the second president in history, is now starting to show up in history books in school.
"This is very difficult for everybody, because it's so fresh," said Gilbert Sewall, director of the American Textbook Council, an independent research group that reviews history texts used in schools. "It's easier to nail down history like the transcontinental railroad. With Clinton, you're dealing with material that has by no means been settled"
It's not that difficult. Bill Clinton lied under oath and was impeached for it. Sound simple to me and any other rational person. Ah, but we're not dealing with rational people. We're dealing with Liberals. But I have to give credit to the AP. At least they understand why he was impeached.
"The House impeached Clinton on charges of lying to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice to conceal his affair with Lewinsky, a White House intern"
If you thought kids today were getting a bad education, wait a few years when more books are written about this. Here's some of what today's books are saying about.
" Middle school texts describe it as 'a personal relationship between the president and a White House intern.' In high school books, it is Clinton's 'improper relationship with a young White House intern,' or Clinton 'denied having sexual relations' with an intern'"
Talk about spin. Sadly, we're going to have a generation of kids who're going to believe he was the victim.
