Clinton: 'We are winning' (calls Obamacare protesters "teabaggers")
politico.com ^ | Nov. 10, 2009

Posted on 11/10/2009 12:11:34 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

During his appearance at the Senate Democrats' weekly lunch Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton told members of his party not to back down when they're winning the health care debate.

A source close to Clinton said the former president had a simple message for Democrats: Make sure to pass something.

"The point I want to make is, just pass the bill, even if it's not exactly what you want," Clinton said, according to the source. "When you try and fail, the other guys write history."

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said Clinton described the ongoing tea party protests against the Democratic agenda as a sign his party was making progress.

Whitehouse quoted Clinton arguing: "The reason the teabaggers are so inflamed is because we are winning." Speaking with reporters outside the event, Clinton framed his case for health care in economic terms: "This is an economic imperative."

"I believe people come to Congress, to places like this, to solve problems," he said, adding that health care reform "strengthens the fabric of the existing health insurance policies."

...wrong FU%$NUT! It’s because we will all lose EXCEPT for a chosen few like you and the vermin you run with!! POS Socialist! If they want to see some “teabagging”, wait until this bill gets passed. DC will have a legitimate 2-3 million that day.

Leave it to another classless individual to join President Obortion and other sleazy Democrats in using lewd terminology in referring to those who would stand in the way of their lust for tyranny.

Democrats know that socialized medicine, regardless of how it destroys the system, will lock in the vote of the American parasite class. Between that constituency and the illegal alien vote, this will be a one party country.

Same as it was when they used the word "chickenhawk" (a term for a grown man chasing young boys) to slur those who supported the war against Saddam.

In a moment of candor, disgraced former president Clinton admits that the left is indifferent to the fate of the country or the results of disastrous legislation they pass - they just want to be able to say “I won”

And you will witness the death spiral of the welfare state.
There isn’t enough ‘production’ in the economy to support another massive government entitlement.

I think you’re right, but I also think that the political class doesn’t care. The country can go down the tubes, and they think they’ll still be in the gravy.

I’ll say it again. These out of touch politicians do not know what the vulgar term “Teabagging” means. I am not convinced all of the media knows.

This vulgarity is becoming main stream. I would hope they would be embarrassed when they finally get around to finding out.

Someone should have asked Bill, “Mr. Clinton, did you Teabag Ms. Lewinsky?”

Then maybe he and some others would get the message about how classless this term is.

If someone calls me or someone else a “teabagger” I say “Oh, you must be a Barney Franker!” When they don’t know how to take that I explain that the phrase describes those that are very liberal and self important. The phrase Also has a bit of deviant sexual behavior associated with it, so that’s a pretty good parallel.

This has got to be one of the STUPIDEST statements, no concern for costs, implementation and outcome just looks good in history. What a blithering idiot.

Stupid is as stupid does!

They must be made accountable for use of this term. We either have to co-opt the icky meaning and own it or we have to be highly offended and demand apologies for bringing such lingo into common parlance. As it is they are getting away with it at the top levels (Obama and Clinton have now used it). They need to own up and admit they are using it with intent..or they need to be “informed” of that other meaning so they can stop “inadvertently and unknowingly” (ha) using it. The left have used language to own the field going all the way back to s/he, etc. Language definitely matters.

Time to call your local station with an obscenity complaint every time they broadcast someone saying “teabagger”. And FCC, if it’s not cable.

Time to fight fire with fire. If Rachel Maddow thinks it's ok to use that vile term, then it's just as legitimate for me to call her a "carpet muncher", or Barney Frank a "fudge packer".

Huddling with Hillbilly Bill will get one or more screwed!

Seriously, will Billary be able to perform CPR on an already over bearing,unconstitutional form of *Extortion* on a Global Scale? I doubt it. To Summon Bill, indicates desperation.

Winning?

Even in your hay-day slick you never got 1.7 million to come to the capital to stand against New Gingrich and the Contract for America.

You can try to diminish but that is only Mussolini Bravado. The Democratic Party is to arrogant to realize the Tea Party folks are your Patton, Benito....

Bill is projecting. I’m sure he know all about inflamed teabags and sees his doctor about it on a regular basis. If he wants to lead all his lemming lefty friends off of a cliff, that’s fine by me. And if he’s trying to upstage Obama the same way Carter upstaged him when he was occupying the oval office, that works for me too.
