A distinguished columnist's somber warning:


was the name of a Washington Post by Robert J. Samuelson
The article was condensed and reprinted in the Semptember 1993 issue of Readers Digest.

In the article, he offers the following advice to President Clinton: "tell the truth."

To quote Mr. Samuelson: "Clinton lies." He goes on to claim the those lies destroy public trust in the President and his Administration.

He points out that President's first budget eliminated no major spending programs. Even though his earlier speech to congress called for such cuts.

New York Times columnist Michael Kelly calls President Clinton's avoidance of the truth his "incredibility factor."

Mr Samuelson points out that a reread of the Clinton/Gore's campain's book "Putting People First" will provide the reader with even more broken promises.
