Today we see little public outrage about Bill Clinton’s misconduct. With enormous skill, the president and his advisors have constructed a defensive wall built of bricks left over from Watergate: diversion, half-truth, equivocation, and sophistry. It is a wall that has remained unbreached—until now. In The Death of Outrage, former cabinet secretary and bestselling author William J. Bennett dismantles the president’s defenses, brick by evasive brick, and analyzes the meaning of the Clinton scandals: why they matter, what the public reaction to them means, and the social and political damage they have already inflicted on America. The Death of Outrage explains: – How the president’s actions, far from being irrelevant to the conduct of his affairs, have severely restricted his ability to govern. – The unprecedented recklessness of the Clinton administration in everything from influence peddling to sexual misconduct to alarming tactics of intimidation. – How the president and his defenders have exploited the natural tolerance of the American people—and made a mockery of the rule of law. – Why the Clinton scandals—from the Travel Office, to Filegate, to the Lewinsky Affair—are neither a creation of the tabloid press, nor independent of one another. Explosive and hard-hitting, The Death of Outrage is directed at a shameful chapter of American history. It is an urgent call for American citizens to repudiate the deep corruption of Bill Clinton, and the corrupting arguments made in his defense.
