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.
