Regarding the controversy about Rep. Akin’s rape remarks, I have started a petition at the White House website to urge Pres. Obama to disinvite Bill Clinton from the Democrat’s convention. Standards must be maintained by both parties.

we petition the obama administration to:
Disinvite Former President Bill Clinton From the DNC Convention Over His History of Abusing Women
In light of President Obama’s comments [Link] at a White House press conference on Aug. 20, 2012, condemning rape and efforts at “qualifying forcible rape versus non-forcible rape,” [Re: Mo GOP Sen candidate Todd Akin's statement] we the undersigned respectfully urge Pres. Obama to uphold his own standard of condemning sexual abuse of women by disinviting former Pres. Bill Clinton from the upcoming Democratic party convention. Mr. Clinton has a history of abusing women. He has been credibly accused of raping Juanita Broaddrick when he was Arkansas Attorney General, according to reports by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Clinton has been accused by numerous women of exposing himself and unwanted sexual touching when he was Governor and President. Mr. Clinton was disbarred for lying about his sexual assaults. He is unfit for the DNC.
According to this report at the Huffington Post, Obama personally invited Bill Clinton to speak at the 2012 Democrat National Convention. He is to “play a major role” as he is not only scheduled to speak, he has been chosen by Obama himself “to place Obama’s name in nomination”.
WASHINGTON — Former President Bill Clinton will have a marquee role in this summer’s Democratic National Convention, where he will make a forceful case for President Barack Obama’s re-election and his economic vision for the country, several Obama campaign and Democratic party officials said Sunday.
The move gives the Obama campaign an opportunity to take advantage of the former president’s immense popularity and remind voters that a Democrat was in the White House the last time the American economy was thriving.
Obama personally asked Clinton to speak at the convention and place Obama’s name in nomination, and Clinton enthusiastically accepted, officials said. Clinton speaks regularly to Obama and to campaign officials about strategy.
Will the left finally end their Bill ‘serial sex abuser’ Clinton worship/hypocrisy? Will predator Bubba finally be hung out to dry, as he has so deserved for decades? Obama and the DNC have a chance to send a very strong message that rape and sexual assault are SERIOUS matters. And no one, no matter how high up on the Democrat echelon one resides, should be treated with the respect that the reprehensible Bill Clinton receives considering his vile, despicable, history of sexually abusing women. Which occurred when Clinton held the very positions of power (he flagrantly abused), that led to his presidency, which then led to the ‘crown of Mr. Democrat party popularity’ being placed upon his head.
Here is your chance progressives, put your money where your ‘war on women’ mouths are. The ball is in your court: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/disinvite-former-president-bill-clinton-dnc-convention-over-his-history-abusing-women/XCDNwcjH
Actually, given the ongoing history of the Democratic party, ignoring Clinton’s crimes against women by blaming the victims proves he totally embodies the DNC. Say the name Monica and watch an oh so sensitive liberal–including women–smirk. Clinton victim Gennifer Flowers was mocked because of the unusual spelling of her name. And don’t forget the “trailer trash” women who Dems felt should have been honored that Clinton even looked at them let alone fondled them.
I’ll not hold my breath.
