Clinton says his Iraq war remarks were misconstrued
Los Angeles Times ^ | December 4, 2007 | By Michael Finnegan

Posted on 12/05/2007 1:30:55 AM PST by johnny7

LEBANON, N.H. -- A week after causing his wife's presidential campaign a headache by saying he had opposed the Iraq war from the start, former President Clinton accused the news media on Tuesday of misrepresenting his remarks.

The impeached ex President BJ cliton, needs to let Mrs. B J Cliton do her own campaigning, and then this mis understanding would not occur...after all she is the wife of the first black impeached President and the smartest woman in the world.. and could do very good on her own..

Fearless Prediction Time: Hillary is going to come down with a treatable illness that is going to require her to be off the campaign trail until a few days before Super Tuesday. She will heroically campaign, in an extremely limited fashion, from her hospital bed, until that time. This illness will befall her within the next week, probably on the afternoon of December 7, but certainly before December 15.

Too true. He can hide quite easily behind a spiral staircase though.

Which remarks were misconstrued? His earlier remarks, when he was reported to have said he supported the war, but really didn't? Or his later remarks, when he was reported to have said he didn't support the war, but really did?

I can understand BillyJeff's frustration. The truth is, he has consistently been on both sides of the issue from the beginning, depending on who he was talking to. The media shouldn't have any problem reporting that properly.

I’m thinking operable breast cancer. Something dramatic that cannot be ascribed to exhaustion.

He's as crooked as a dog's hind leg. When he dies, they won't be able to bury him, they'll have to screw him into the ground like an auger!

You must get your metaphors from the same shop as my dad.

"Crooked as a dog's hind leg" and "They'll have to screw him into his grave" are his two favorite descriptions of a real crook . . . . we've just about worn them out over the antics of WJC.

The thought that the American people would actually let this two-bit grifter anywhere near the White House again is chilling.

Hillary is going to come down with a treatable illness that is going to require her to be off the campaign trail until a few days before Super Tuesday.

Laryngitis, attributed to strain brought on by excessive forced laughter. This will also keep her from having to interact with news outlets, thereby limiting unscripted moments.

The man’s so crooked he won't need a hole dug for his grave. They will just screw him into the ground.

Bill, why don't you just disappear to Thailand and chase skirts, you lying worthless reprobate.

On the other hand, who knows, maybe it's better you slither around in the gutters near your crime boss partner, Hildebeast. You may be doing her more harm than good.

I thought the same thing last week. but cannot come up with a date. My trigger is a precipitous fall in her polling. How do you arrive at a Dec. 7 -15 date to fall out?

Well he’s not very handsome to look at
Oh he’s shaggy and he eats like a hog
And he’s always killin’ my chickens
That dirty old egg-suckin’ dog

Egg-suckin’ dog
I’m gonna stomp your head in the ground
If you don’t stay out of my hen house
You dirty old egg-suckin’ hound

Now if he don’t stop eatin’ my eggs up
Though I’m not a real bad guy
I’m gonna get my riffle and send him
To that great chicken house in the sky

Egg-suckin’ dog
Your always hangin’ around
But you’d better stay out of my hen house
You dirty old egg-suckin’ hound

How do you arrive at a Dec. 7 -15 date to fall out?

She needs to stop the bleeding. The more she struggles, the worse it gets. She cannot recover by campaigning, so she has to stop campaigning. Immediately.

I arrived at December 7 and 14 because they are Fridays. The Clintons always like to do document dumps and make unexpected revelations that they do not want well examined late on Friday afternoon. They can count on favorable treatment on the Sunday shows, and by Monday it is Old News.

I think it will be before Christmas because she cannot afford to drag this on until New Years. By then it will be too late. Over the Christmas goose, either everybody will be talking about how they have given up on Hillary or about how terrible it is that she is sick. One or the other. She would much rather it be the latter.

After reading the headline for the thread I guessed by the third post someone would have made an “is” comment. I was wrong, happened at #2.

Lol, thank you for those versions... Very funny! I’ve saved them.

I was talking to my elderly uncle last week and he came up with the “snake hole” line when referring to Clinton. Maybe you had to be there and know him, but it really cracked me up. He was grasping for words at the time and it just sort of popped out. Sounded totally spontaneous and original. I checked Google and couldn’t find it anywhere so it may be. Cheers!
