Bill Clinton: We Did Nothing Wrong
Despite his impeachment, Gennifer Flowers, Whitewater and the other problems that have beset Bill Clintons political career, the former president still maintains he did nothing wrong.
During a wide-ranging interview with David Remnick of The New Yorker magazine excerpted earlier on NewsMax.com Clinton started to talk about Whitewater, about Kenneth Starr, about how allowing the appointment of a special prosecutor had been the worst decision of his presidency, Remnick writes.
He talked about old enemies in Arkansas, about the Resolution Trust Corporation, about Gennifer Flowers, about Susan Schmidt of the Washington Post. Despite Clintons claims he is not looking back, you could see just how deeply he still feels the attacks of the late 90s, Remnick disclosed. He noted Clintons anger is palpable as his carotid artery seemed to inflate like a jammed garden hose as these topics were discussed.
But when asked if he thought it would be unbearable to go through all of it again if Hillary ran for president in 2008, Clinton replied: I dont care, because we know we did nothing wrong.
Surprisingly some of Clintons closest supporters think he has more to blame than the so-called Clinton haters.
Remnick quoted one of Clintons closest aides, former Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, regarding Clintons state of denial:
The method he uses to live with himself is to make a clear and precise argument that this was something that others had done to him and not that he had done to himself.
Because of his brainpower, he can create a logic for anything.
But deep down he would be such a good person if he could just accept the fact that he screwed up and made mistakes, and move on.
Women voters were the largest single block of voters for Clinton. They are to blame.
Bill, it would be far more accurate to say that you did "nothing right."
I believe it was something like 70% in 1992. It actually made me question if women were bright enough to have the right to vote.
We did nothing wrong.............We did NOTHING!!
He talked about old enemies in Arkansas"
There is still ONE ENEMY in ARKANSAS who hasn't forgotten a damned thing you did and didn't do you CREEP!
I HAVE A LONG MEMORY!
It is time to point the finger at the problem before they vote Hillary into the White House.
A split electorate that arose from anger felt by people towards Bush 41
It was all about abortion on demand and what women felt is their right to have access to it.
That and their willingness to buy BS from a man with no conscience
You forget the peanut farmer.

What you do is goad Clinton and Hillary into a great big blowout. Then the poor confused leftists will have to pick sides and this will deflate their vote for Hillary.
Bill: "Deny...Deny... Deny"
It just goes to show you that "A mind is a terrible thing... "
