Posted on 10/26/2007 11:46:01 AM PDT by SoldierDad
Bill Clinton addressed a crowd in Minneapolis, Minnesota at a fundraiser for his wife's campaign on Tuesday.
Clinton's 50-minute speech, which started about an hour behind schedule, was derailed briefly by several hecklers in the audience who shouted that the 2001 terrorist attacks were a fraud. Rather than ignoring them, Clinton seemed to relish a direct confrontation.
"A fraud? No, it wasn't a fraud," Clinton said, as the crowd cheered him on. "I'll be glad to talk to you if you shut up and let me talk."
When another heckler shouted that the attacks were an "inside job," Clinton took even greater umbrage.
"An inside job? How dare you. How dare you. It was not an inside job," Clinton said. "You guys have got to be careful, you're going to give Minnesota a bad reputation."
Pandering for his wife’s campaign? Genuine belief? Who knows?
Complete set up. She has no credible opposition for the nomination so the rodents are positioning her more toward the middle now. Her degnerate husband is out doing the work honest people won’t do.
This is Hillary’s attempt at a Sister Soulja moment, by proxy.
Well, I say good for him for speaking up about it instead of letting it ride.
It was a setup!
If they had shouted about his ignoring terrorism while it festered under his administration, that would have been real.
He’s good at adlibbing.
Its sad to say that Bill Clinton appears to be a more reasonable person than Ron Paul.
Its also sad to say, in a head-to-head contest between Clinton and Paul ... I’d lean toward Bubba. Perish the thought.
If this was a genuine event and not staged. It’s hard to know to what extent these two will go to get Shrillery elected.
She passed up her true sista soulja moment when she wimped out on the moveon.org hit piece on the good general. She's as phony as the day is long.
Search LiveLeak or YouTube for “Clinton” and “Angry” and see how many you get.
I know the feeling. It’s like when watching an NFL game where you hate both teams, but you want one to lose to help out the team you do like, making you root for the other one (example for me - rooting for the hated Rams playing the Seahawks because the Seahawks losing helps the 49ers - okay, so I’m delusional).
Minnesota already has a bad reputation. That’s why clinton is giving speeches and franken is running for Senate there.
He’s good at those Sister Souljah moments, isn’t he?
Well well well. I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He is a womanizer and a liberal but he’s not crazy like the truthers are.
From what I am gathering...all democrats in the public eye are denouncing these loony people because they are becoming a very bad pimple on the butt of the party. They don’t want to be associated with these loons....
I vehemently detest Bill Maher, but I give credit where its due and I like the way he handled the truthers last week.
Love the “Niners!
“shut up and let me talk”
I think most liberal, somewhere in the dark recesses of their small mind have a tiny bit of sense. But the truthers have none. Zip, zero, nada!
