Clinton rewrites history
Boston Herald ^ | 09/27/2006 | Boston Herald editorial staff

Posted on 09/27/2006 12:26:58 AM PDT by A CA Guy

For Bill Clinton, the best defense is always a good offense.

That’s the Clinton the nation saw Sunday, pointing his finger and reprimanding Fox News’ Chris Wallace for the crime of aggressively questioning the former president about his role in fighting terrorism and his failure to go after Osama bin Laden.

“They [the Bush administration] had eight months to try [and] they did not try. I got closer to killing him than anybody’s gotten since,” he said.

Perhaps someone should have reminded Clinton that “close” only counts in horseshoes. But that aside, a day later Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice attempted to set the record straight. So why the Clinton hissy-fit and why the attempt now to rewrite the sorry history of his own administration?

Well, perhaps Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) tipped her hand when she said, “I just think that my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take this.”

With the mid-year elections coming up, maybe the only defense for Dems is a good offense.

No, he lost it and we are watching political theater in trying to cover it up.

WHY DIDN"T HE TAKE OSAMA BIN LADEN?

Tried once to kill him with a missile toward the end of his term, but a few other times other nations were offering to hand him over for jail or whatever and Clinton said NO NO NO.

He is and was a sociopath, but obviously despite Osama declaring war against us in 1996, Bill Clinton still didn't seem to care and that makes no sense.

If we keep getting out there that he did not take Osama Bin Laden and the people get the magnitude of that decision regarding how probably no 9/11 would have happened, the whole Democrat party would be toast. Correct 100%!

If you look at a thing nine hundred and ninety-nine times, you are perfectly safe; if you look at it the thousandth time, you are in frightful danger of seeing it for the first time. –G. K. Chesterton Take this:

The exact reverse of that is the Middle Eastern culture and Bill Clinton's version of reality, which is:

You tell the lie over and over again until the lie is the truth!

Unfortunately he's in the U.K. right now spewing all his lies to Brown who will replace Tony Blair when he retires soon. I hate to think what distorted lies he's telling them.

Dick Clarke has an opinion, but means nothing.

Bottom line we had a President let go several times a terrorist who had already declared war on us in 1996.
By not taking this terrorist, Clinton gave us 9/11, the terror network that expanded globally with Osama's money and this war we are in.

There could be a real case easily made for my statement above and based on facts WITHOUT politics, I think Democrats could NOT challenge the statement above based on actual facts.

Now the problem is, DEMOCRATS and a loved Leader of Democrats didn't take the terrorist when in hand.
So, we get no news or little news or falsified news regarding the issue.
The one partisanship of the main stream press is actually in this case a betrayal of the American People regarding real history and which party enables terror.

Here is the link to the New York Post's story about their exclusive interview with Secretary of State Condi Rice:

http://www.nypost.com/seven/09252006/news/nationalnews/rice_boils_over_at_bubba_nationalnews_.htm

Any careful reading of this story will show that the Clintons are doing what they do best: lie.

He is giving Brown his victimology.

Bill is a real sociopath, so he believes EVERY word he is telling Brown.

He is probably trying to figure out with Brown how to funnel U.K. money to help finance Democrats in our elections and getting paid massive monies on the tour as he at least partially hits the paid speaking circuit.

Yes, you are right and they are telling good lies.

As I mentioned above, what the Clintons and Middle Eastern folks share is the belief that if you lie and tell the lie often enough, that the lie becomes the truth.

Bill and the Islamic cultures actually believe the lies as truth themselves when they tell it often enough, but the effect is still that citizens who don't have a grasp of history or don't read much won't know they are lying and will believe the BS.

That was a VERY good article by the way.

Even the Tonight Show took his "I tried to kill him line" in a skit where he was placed with a little girl in the interview to sound like he was trying to kill Santa.

I think the Tonight Show is a reflection of Americana and the fact Leno did that educates many who vote but don't educate themselves politically as to what a clown Clinton is.

Most revealing comment. As usual, everything is politics to dems...electioneering, governing, legislating, even the WOT. It's all about getting to the power.

I was just elsewhere where a Brit just claimed conservatives can't back up their statements with facts.

That was posted right after a long list of facts with sources. Then they went on to say look what happens to Blair when he lies and so forth.

I think there is a lot of projection of their views that makes some folks cancel out the evidence of facts.

They want their issues, not the facts or truth.
If they are proved to be supporting a lie, their whole persona is made to look foolish IMO and liberals can't stand that IMO.

You are correct about the Islamic culture and their obsession with the art of lying. For the DemonRATs and the Clintons, politics is the use of lies to further your candidacy. For the Republicans, the name "Honest Abe" comes to mind.

It's scary. Almost like mass brainwashing that's reinforced periodically by some action like with a trigger word, and this insanity all started when the clintons first came on the scene.

I know I'm starting to sound like the WTC conspiracy fools but what other explanation can there be? Was bill clinton taught mass mind control during the 63 days he spent with the KGB in the early 70's and that's why he has to keep making appearances everywhere and won't go away, or are people just so lazy in todays world they find it easier to believe lies than face the truth when it's presented to them?

It's mind boggling.

One more time for Bubba:

Perjury, obstruction of justice; loss of law license (for just 5 years- too bad) and the right to EVER argue a case before the SC; drug dealing, Mena, Dan Lassiter, Don Tyson and the "Dixie mafia"; Hillary; Travelgate; sexual harrassment and breaking his OWN laws re: sexual harrassment in the workplace; misconduct and rape charges; Somalia, Bosnia; aspirin factories and Chinese embassies; lying to the American people and wagging fingers; smarmy theatrics and crocodile tears, quivering lips (gross!);phony "surpluses" and recession; eight years under attack and appeasement; not ONE thing of ANY value accomplished under his presidency- NOT ONE THING; Impeachment and one lucky break from the Senate.

Carved in stone.

To get the real assessment of the job Bill did in confronting terrorism, all you have to do is read the OpEd column from Mr. Connor in today's NY Post. That says it all.

Yes, that says it all, doesn't it?
Well, perhaps Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) tipped her hand when she said, “I just think that my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take this.”

With the mid-year elections coming up, maybe the only defense for Dems is a good offense.

Can they not hear themselves?! Time and again the Dems tell us how MAD they are at Bush, the Republican Congress, Rumsfeld, Fox News, etc. etc. etc.

For all their indignation, there's one glaring omission: they never express anger at the real enemies. Thugs cut off an American's head...Dems rail against spying on terrorists. Blow up a few Iraqis and the Dems demand Rumsfeld resign. Try to blow up a bunch of American airliners (and get caught), and the Dems go on and on about Bush trying to frighten the public. Do they really think Americans don't notice this pattern? The only people they never get mad at are the perpetrators.

For the life of me I can't understand their picking this battle at this time. Logic tells me the Dems plan to return to the "War Room" days and roll out Begala, Carville, McAwful, etc. Clinton's interview was designed to loose the binds that restrain former presidents from entering the political fray. The Dems think they're putting in their A-Team. They fail to anticipate the easy GOP response: "See, that's the only 'War Room' Dems seem to embrace. They hone their attacks on their American opponents while thoroughly failing to present a comprehensible plan for fighting the real war."

Bill Clinton is the kid who's greatest aspiration is becoming president of his class. He's got a handle on all the issues needed to get elected and gets himself elected.
He's only goal is the attainment of the office and the trappings, he could care less about the job.

He liked playing President, but he is so shallow that the job was all it was about.

The Clintonistas, Jackass Party, are frustrated that there have been no terrorist attacks in the U.S. since 9/11/01. They want Bush to fail in the war on terror, because they think that will help them win elections. Which means they want our troops to fail; they want our troops to be killed and wounded in Iraq and hope that the U.S. will leave Iraq in defeat. The Democrats, lead by the Clintonistas, are allies of the terrorists.
