Republicans miss the feel-good 90s when a universally respected President Clinton reigned over an eight-year bipartisan love fest. (5:13)

( LAUGHTER )

WOW.

BARACK OBAMA IS JUST TERRIBLE.

REPUBLICANS ESPECIALLY ARE

COMING DOWN ON HIM MERCILESSLY.

I BET THEY MISS THE GOOD OLD

DAYS WHEN THEY HAD A PRESIDENT

THEY RESPECTED.

>> UNDER CLINTON YOU HAD A

PRESIDENT WILLING TO COMPROMISE.

BILL CLINTON, WHO YOU DEPICT IN

YOUR BOOK, WAS A FLEXIBLE GUY.

>> HE LEARNED HOW THE COMPROMISE

WITH CONSERVATIVES TO GET THINGS

DONE.

>> IF HE'S WILLING TO WORK WITH

US AS BILL CLINTON DID AFTER THE

1994 ELECTIONS TO PASS THINGS

LIKE WELFARE REFORM, TRADE

AGREEMENTS AND THE LIKE, WE'LL

CERTAINLY WORK WITH HIM.

>> Jon: THAT'S RIGHT.

REPUBLICAN DARLING BILL CLINTON.

( LAUGHTER )

SOME OF YOU MAY BE TOO YOUNG TO

REMEMBER THE FEEL-GOOD 1990s

WHEN A UNIVERSALLY RESPECTED

PRESIDENT CLINTON REIGNED OVER

AN EIGHT-YEAR BIPARTISAN

LOVEFEST.

LET ME GIVE YOU A TEST OF WHAT

IT FELT LIKE BACK THEN.

♪ LET THE SUN SHINE

LET THE SUN SHINE ♪♪

AND BY THE WAY, THAT IS WHAT

THEY WERE SINGING AT HIS

IMPEACHMENT HEARING.

ANYWAY, THAT'S HOW I REMEMBER

IT.

OH, BUT I WAS HIGH FOR NEARLY

THE ENTIRE DECADE.

>> PRESIDENT CLINTON LIED.

>> HE ASSAULTED OUR LEGAL

SYSTEM.

>> DELIVERED AN UNWORKABLE

SOCIALIST HEALTH CARE SCHEME.

>> THE APPROACH TO HEALTH CARE,

THE EXTREMISM.

>> NEW SPENDING AND NEW TAXES.

>> HE WANTS TO MAKE RADICAL

CHANGES.

>> IT'S AN UNAMERICAN POSITION.

>> NEW AGE SOCIALIST.

>> SOMEONE WHO HAS DODGED THE

DRAFT, IS DRAFT DODGER.

>> I ABUSED -- BELIEVE HE ABUSED

HIS FOSTER.

>> THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF VINCE

FOSTER.

>> SUICIDE.

WHY?

WHY?

>> THERE WAS BLONDE HAIR ON HIS

T-SHIRT.

WHOSE HAIR WAS IT?

>> BILL CLINTON IS BAD BOY, A

NAUGHTY BOY.

>> MISLEADING AND UNTRUTHFUL.

>> FAKE AND PHONY.

>> BILL CLINTON IS PROBABLY EVEN

NASTY, BAD, NAUGHTY BOY.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: SENATOR AIRPORT RUB

AND TUG IS RIGHT.

( LAUGHTER )

BILL CLINTON WAS A BIPARTISAN

DREAM WHO REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS TRIED IMPEACH WHEN THEY

WEREN'T ON THE FLOOR OF THE

HOWNS ACCUSING HIM OF HAVING

HAND IN SOMEONE'S MURDER.

BUT I GUESS FOR REPUBLICANS,

CLINTON IS LIKE A FINE WINE, THE

MORE YOU DRINK, THE HARDER IT IS

TO REMEMBER, OH, I [BLEEPED]

HATE WINE.

( LAUGHTER )

YOU KNOW WHAT, MAYBE THE '90s

WEREN'T THE LOVEFEST I REMEMBER,

BUT I KNOW THERE WAS A DECADE

THAT WAS.

>> I'M GOING TO GIVE CREDIT TO

PRESIDENT RAGAN, WHO TRIED TO

HAVE COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

>> RONALD REAGAN ENGAGED

DIRECTLY AND PERSONALLY WITH

GORBACHEV.

>> RONALD REAGAN, WHO WAS JUST

FIERCE IN HIS COMMENTARY THAT

TORTURE IS ABHORRENT.

>> RONALD REAGAN, WHO DESPITE

HIS AVERSION TO GOVERNMENT WAS

WILLING TO HELP SAVE SOCIAL

SECURITY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS,

WORKING WITH DEMOCRATS.

>> YOU HAD THAT.

AND IF TIVO WENT BACK THAT FAR,

WE WOULD SHOW YOU THE MONTAGE

THE PROVE IT.

LET ME RE-ENACT THE '80ED FOR

YOU.

RONALD REAGAN IS AN [BLEEPED]

HOLE, A DICK WAD, A RAVING MAD

CALIFORNIA JELLYBEAN ADDICT.

THE DISTINGUISHED GENERALMAN

FROM CHARACTER VAINA YIELDS HIS

TIME.

>> IT'S BECOMING VERY CLEAR THAT

THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN THE

PRESIDENT IS THE PRESIDENT WHO

FOLLOWS HIM.

SO I'VE GOT SOME ADVICE FOR

SOMEONE WHO COULD REALLY USE IT,

OUR NEXT PRESIDENT, MEET ME AT

CAMERA THREE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

YOU IGNORANT RACIST MARXIST

THEOCRATIC GODLESS CHICKEN

[BLEEPED].

( LAUGHTER )

THAT'S RIGHT.

HOW'S THAT TASTE?

YOU, ACCORDING TO THE THINGS

I'VE HEARD MYSELF SAY ABOUT YOU,

ARE THE WORST.

TAKE A LOOK AT HOW WE WILL COVER

YOUR INAUGURATION.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

WHAT DID AMERICA EVER DO TO YOU?

AND AS I SIT HERE TODAY WATCHING

THE STATE PUFF MARSHMALLOW MAN

RAMPAGING THROUGH THE STREETS OF

MY BELOVED CITY, ONE THING HAS

POPPED INTO MY HEAD -- NEVER

WOULD HAVE HAPPENED UNDER THE

LEADERSHIP OF A THOUGHTFUL

UNITER LIKE GEORGE W. BUSH.

( LAUGHTER )

WOW, HISTORY DOES JUDGE YOU

DIFFERENTLY.

BECAUSE APPARENTLY EVERY FOUR

YEARS HISTORY HAS A PIANO
