Bill Clinton's view of how parties differ (mega barf alert)
Minneapolis Star Tribune ^ | July 17, 2006 | Bill Clinton

Posted on 07/30/2006 1:15:39 PM PDT by neverdem

Excerpts of former President Bill Clinton's remarks earlier this month at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo.

I don't know how long they can make this old dog hunt. Ever since 2000, the 2002 and 2004 elections were about, "No matter how bad you think we are, you can't vote for them, because you can't trust them to defend the country. And oh, by the way, forget about global warming; let's talk about flag burning and gay marriage." I mean, I just don't know how long you can milk that old cow without its milk running dry. ... My advice is that we should have a national campaign which basically reiterates what we believe the differences are between -- not just Republicans and Democrats, but the relatively discrete section of the Republican Party that is totally controlling national government. ...

Karl Rove said that he was going to say we lived in a pre-9/11 world and Republicans lived in a post-9/11 world. You tell me. Example one: The White House and the House Republicans opposed spending $648 million a year to put in very high-technology, sophisticated scanning equipment that would at least give us a screen on all the cargo containers coming into all the ports and airports in America. They said, "We can't do that. It's too expensive. ..."

What was their first priority this year? Repealing the estate tax. What does it cost? About $250 billion over 10 years! For less than 1 percent of the American people. ... So he's willing to spend more than 20 times what it would cost to put in this safe-port material. The Republican Party in the Congress are willing to spend more than 20 times what it would cost to make 300 million Americans safer to help less than 1...

Only useless, criminal liberals would care what Bill Clinton has to say about anything. It is still astonishing and scary that there are people that actually pay money to hear this perverted liar speak....

Klintoon just has no shame,you'd think that with his "legacy", he'd want to stay out of the limelight. He's sadly mistaken if he thinks anyone has or will forget his tawdry and trashy performance as President. Just thinking of him as President of the US makes me ill.

Well as usual Bill Boy is lying thru his teeth. The scanning equipment for radiological is all ready in place. Any additional scanning system that could handle the 10s of thousands of containers would cost a VERY great deal more then his $648 million. That is probably JUST the cost to install the system in NY. Then you have to staff it which would mean thousands of additional Fed Bureaucrats.

Of course the fact that such a system would be utterly useless doesn't matter. All that matters is that Billy and the Clitonites proved to the brain dead soccer moms "how much he cares for you."

Right, and the child support check is in the mail and he will not get you pregnant and so on and so forth....

So I guess he did show us the difference. One party lies thru their teeth simply saying what ever pops into twisted little heads that they fancy will get people to vote for them, the other one tells them hard truth The War on terror will be long, costly and painful but we got to do it.

Well, there's the wine (and whine) and cheese parties with the swells and "celebrities" (but no "little" people) and then there's the "party in his pants" parties.

That's the 2 kinds of Clinton parties.

Yes siree, Jim Bob Bubba do like to "party" with Juanita Broderick and Paula Jones and God knows how many other unfortunate victims.

Mr Clinton,

While we are not all great students of history or political discourse, we did experience your Presidency, and have seen the various international disasters your stewardship have brought upon us. Simply making a speech denying your ill-advised, foolish choices and negligence does not make it so.

In other words: You may sugarcoat sh** all you wish, but we're not biting.

Bill Clinton's view of how parties differ

Why would I take heed of anything that an individual who totally lacks a moral compass has to say.

Let Howie Dean and the NY Times sing his praises.

Weren't the stevedores in San Francisco violently protesting such screening measures
because their high-paying jobs would be in jeopardy?
I'm sure union dockworkers are Republican stalwarts(sarcasm).

Talk about milking an old cow. Tax cuts don't cost the government. Especially not if you allow the people who have pr oven that they know how to make money work keep more of it in the first place. If tax cuts were so "expensive" why are tax revenues higher than any time this idiot was running things?

I'm sorry but the union doc workers have nothing to do with security measures. Security is supplied by the Federal Government. They would be Federal Union workers and have nothing to do with the Dock Workers As I pointed out in my in my original post if you bothered to read and comprehend before screaming your mind benumbed Democrat Party cant.

However, the reason your masters in the Union were screaming is because the new Terminal Operator was going to do away with 1970s style labor practices and automate a large number of Union jobs. It had NOTHING at all to do with security. But I guess your idols at the Democrat National Committee forgot to feed you that little fact in your Port Talking Point memo hummmm Deaniac?

"I mean, I just don't know how long you can milk that old cow without its milk running dry. ..." For a moment, I thought he was talking about Hillarycare.....

However, the old Democrat cow, SOCIALISM, has run dry years ago, and even the greatest Socialist Empire in history died with the old Soviet Union.

Ne just doesn't get it: Americans will NOT cave in to the socialist/Liberal/Democrat agenda, and they can't win at the ballot box and they know it.

Liberal judges were their only way to get their agenda in place, and even that is starting to fail them.

"No matter how bad you think we are, you can't vote for them, because you can't trust them to defend the country. And oh, by the way, forget about global warming; let's talk about flag burning and gay marriage."

Because we all know that Bill and Al put Global Warming above everything else when they were in the WH. Don't you know they stopped Global Warming in the 90's, then Bush and Rove started up Global Warming all over again. /sarc off

I read your post and posted an honest question/opinion.

Bill Clinton, you lied and covered up terrorism on our shores while you had the reigns. How dare you continue to lie to the faces of American's after 911 which you could maybe have prevented. My liberal neighbor got the memo too as she said the EXACT words to us night before last! TRASH ALERT!
