Bill Clinton Unloads on Press By Anne E. Kornblut Former president Bill Clinton lashed out in response to criticism on Wednesday from a prominent Democrat in South Carolina, accusing the Obama campaign of running a political smear campaign against him through the media. "You live for this," Clinton snapped at CNN reporter Jessica Yellin when she asked him to comment on statements by Dick Harpootlian, the former South Carolina Democratic party chairman, who said recent distortions by the Clintons are "reprehensible." Harpootlian, who backed the Clintons in the 1990s and now supports Sen. Barack Obama, had compared Clinton's distortions to the dirty tricks campaigns run by the infamous Republican operative Lee Atwater. After an event on Wednesday in South Carolina, Yellin approached the former president and asked him to respond to Harpootlian's remarks. Clinton let loose on camera, chastising the reporter for asking him about political conflict rather than the substance of the meeting he had just held. "You're asking me about this, you sat through this whole meeting. Not one single, solitary soul asked about any of this. And they never do." Referring to the Obama campaign, Clinton said: "They are feeding you this because they know this is what you want to cover." As Clinton's aides tried to steer him out the door, he continued to scold back in Yellin's direction: "Shame on you."

It’s all entertainment to get votes for Hillary.
The “infamous” Lee Atwater??
I am so tired of the Clintons. They are globalists and just want to sell off America what hasn’t already been overrun from the south.
Great website I saw: http://www.shutupbill.com/billclinton.html
I hope he doesn’t go to it!
Entertainment especially meant to underscore race and peel off white voters.
what = that
I like to watch this.
How odd? Wasn’t there a bimbo around at the moment? If he unloaded on the media, that’s a lot of kleenex.
This has been discussed and it was theorized that before the S.C. Primary he would go bonkers again. It's a strategery to keep himself and the Beast in the news instead of Hussein.
Has he been hanging out with Hugo, chewin’ the coca again?
I’d say he frustrated. Wouldn’t you agree Hillary?
Wouldn’t you just love to be one of those media wh*** that carried water for this scu*bag in ‘96 and now he’s rippin you a new one. This is too funny.
Oh look!! It’s a bird, its a plane, it’s BILDA-BEAST!
No. It’s eight more years of another Co-Presidency with interns!
Again? He’s old enough to be staying home. So is she, but that’s after her Senate term expires.
The problem is that notwithstanding the clear racial divide that the Clintons have instigated, when Hillary wins the nomination, she surely will not choose Barak Hussein Obama as VP. That said, the Dems will expect and demand that the Negroes will shuffle back to the Democrat plantation and take their whippings, to which they are accustomed, and with some walking around money, vote for the bitch.
“Bill Clinton Unloads”
Can we do something with the title?
I know he's supposed to be a political "genius" but there is such a thing as overplaying your hand.
"Famed President's Head Explodes!"
It’s a brilliant strategy to make the primaries about race. The Clinton’s have turned Obama into the black candidate, the last thing on earth he wanted to be.
“Stop talking about race, you guys, race, race, race, race...
Obama called Hillary the Seantor from Punjab? Haven’t heard that one before. Maybe Bill is a little bit sensitive to the Indian thing on account Vinod Gupta, the Indian data minig magnate who has flown Hill and Bill around on his private jet, and who is under investigation for fraud in selling out senior citizen info to fraudsters. Bill has been paid several hundred thousands of bucks by Gupta for ‘consulting’.
I never heard a word of public complaint when Mr. Obama said Hillary was not truthful, no character, was poll-driven.
Duh, billy-boy: The reason that you didn't hear "a word of public complaint" was because the claims are abso-freakin-lutely FACTUAL.
Now, you're all excited because we won't all join you in your FAIRY TALES about how Herself the Cold and Vicious is "truthful," has "character," and is not "poll-driven."
Have a Valium, fella'. You look all purple.
(I so wish that he had the guts to read what we all think of him.)
He's getting irrational
I thought maybe he’d had a stroke (opened mouth, etc.); but you may be right.
An impeached, disbarred, disgraced, lying, pot-smoking rapist certainly has no right to lecture anyone - even the disgusting press people!
Pot says "Kettle...your black!"
"Pot says "Kettle you're black"
Obama needs to get serious and body slam Bill and Hill. He needs to tell Bill to go home to Monica, and tell Hillary that Judy Garland wants those red slippers back... to start...
If you watched the video and you heard Clinto accuse Obama of calling his wife the Senator from Punjab, you would have noticed how indignant Bill was at that slut towards his poor wife. The truth is, Obama NEVER called his wife that, a campaign release state Clinto (D-Punjab), but Obama never uttered the words. More importantly, the reason his campaign did that was because HILLARY HERSELF had said the EXACT same thing at a fundraiser of Indian Americans! from the NY Observer..........Anyone reading on in the actual text of the Obama release would discover that New Yorks junior Senator had jokingly referred to herself as a prospective Senator from Punjab at an Indian-American fund-raising event. Its true that the headline in question wasnt a model of claritybut its also hard to see how the same word choice in the hands of one candidate is a show of playful ethnic solidarity, while becoming a telltale sign of bigotry the moment another one takes it up in the spirit of criticism.
I think Britney Spears will live longer than WJC. The man looks spent.
It hasn't reached that point yet. They may calculate that with the combined black/man-hater vote, they can beat the Republicans. Why wouldn't Hussein accept? Reagan chose George "Voodoo Economics" Bush.
I hate to see “Bill Clinton” and “Unloads” in the same sentence-troubling, very troubling.
>>I think Britney Spears will live longer than WJC. The man looks spent.<<
If he kicks off before the election, she will be coronated.
Clinton, not Spears.
Bill has no gratitude. If the press hadn’t been spinning his scandals like a jet turbine, public outrage would have resulted in his removal from office and criminal prosecution. How else could there not have been an inquiry over FBI filegate and Vince Foster, if the media hadn’t played them down? The Clintons don’t own the media; the media owns them.
Ah, our unisex president...
It seems that Clinton has been tossing out shame at others quite a lot lately, for someone who is shameless.
And don’t forget cocaine sniffer...
How about “Bill Clinton Unloads, Sinking Campaign” or “Bill Clinton Unloads, Hillary relegated to clean up mess” or “Campaign os so close, it’s a toss off between Obama and Clinton camps.”
Perhaps Monica can make a suggestion, she's used to Bills loads...
The Clintons are users if they think it will help them - I believe that deep in their hearts (he from segragated AK and she from a rich, upscale Il enclave) that they have the shared opinion that blacks are ‘help’ - various forms but ‘help’ nevertheless - think Secret Service or the military - for their benefit but not on the team. She would never choose a negro - he would get more coverage than she.
Now he’s hollering at a CNN reporter? My, my. I guess the Clintons can’t rely on the press any more to cover their butts.
