Bill Clinton: Hillary wants me to restore image of US
The Guardian via Drudge ^ | 10/5/07 | Oliver Burkeman

Posted on 10/04/2007 10:20:03 PM PDT by peggybac

If Hillary Clinton wins the US presidency, Bill Clinton will be given the job of repairing America's damaged international reputation, the former president tells the Guardian in an interview today. Mr Clinton, 61, reveals that his wife has said she would ask him to "go out and immediately restore America's standing, go out and tell people America was open for business and cooperation again" after eight years marked by unilateralist policies that have "enrage[d] the world".

There goes our latest technology to china. Who knows what other “gifts” will be given so they “like” us. Hell, foreign leaders want him to pony up to pretend they like America again.

No thanks.

As Goldwater said, they don’t have to like us, they have to respect us. Love follows respect.

These people are getting away with murder. They are being heralded as legitimate by a huge portion of the world when in reality they make Bonnie and Clyde look like pikers...these people are far more dangerous.

I can’t belive they are are getting away with this. I guess there are fools born every minute and money talks. Shocking, disgusting and frightening.

I can only imagine the sickening spectacle at the UN, in France, the Arab countries.

Bill Clinton, at $100K a pop, telling the anti-American world that we are back to business as usual, the witch is dead.

Only now, the witch is President. And the bimbo is pubic relations director. The America-bashers will be ecstatic.

The best and fastest way to restore our image around the world is to stop all financial aid to all of those ungrateful bass turds. They’ll fall deeply in love with the United States again in no time.

You and I both basically posted the same thing. He does realize if his shrew wife gets elected all of his Presidential history goes out the window and he will be known forever as the first male "First Lady," does he not? I just can't see Bill's monstrous ego accommodating that notion ...

I had never thought of that, he must have a plan because you are right, he would forever just be her husband, a footnote to her presidency.

If the blogosphere makes a big, hilarious, derogatory, deal about Bill being “First Lady,” I can almost guarantee a sudden Hillary! withdrawal for “family reasons.” No one has quite yet figured Bill’s ego into this. And it figures BIG.

Well, if the rest of her planned appointments are so misconceived, it is going to be a rocky four years if the American public is stupid enough to elect her.

I have some other ones for her:

Jimmy Carter as Secretary of State
Dennis Kucinich as Secretary of Defense
Sandy Pants Berger as National Security Advisor
Janet Waco Reno as Homeland Security Chief

This will go a long way to restore America’s image abroad and ensure domestic tranquility.

Bill Clinton wanting to ‘restore’ America’s image is like John Evander Couey offering a testimonial in behalf of the Jessica Lunsford Foundation.

Both visuals are utterly disgusting.

“Bill Clinton will be given the job of repairing America’s damaged international reputation”

He is going to place himself in jail for all his past crimes as President?

“go out and tell people America was open for business”

Hide your women.

The former president was visiting London this week to host a fundraising dinner for his wife's campaign, and to promote his new book, Giving, which urges people to give time and money to good causes regardless of their age or wealth.

is that even legal?

Of course the author misses the fact that in the couple of years virtually all of the old Clinton friendly heads of state have been voted out of office. France, Germany, etc..

You’re absolutely right. I heard Dr. Dobson on Hannity this afternoon...what a fool. He’d rather stand by and watch Hillary as President, the country irretreivably changed by the judges she picks, than give a little on who he feels is acceptable.

Somehow it just doesnt seem all the Christian to me.

So basically what she is saying is that she wants his ass outta the house. That way she can have the run of the place without interference or risk of being overshadowed by him.

I can’t stand the thought of then back in the WH. If it happens I’ll have to turn off the news and stay off the net. UGH!

“So basically what she is saying is that she wants his ass outta the house.”

It’s a real dilemma for her. If he is at home he overshadows her cause even the Left dislikes her while loving him. As far as ideas and politics, Hillary only knows Communism and its little brother Socialism so she can’t function effectively without Bill’s thoughts substituting for hers. Bill is also a Commie Socialist but he knows how to pretty it up and serve it so it looks like it might do some good to the Capitalist side.

If she weren’t a Lesbo, she’d be screwed; in this case, I guess she’s just shafted.
