Clinton Uses Anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing to Attack Michelle Bachman
American Spectator ^ | 4.16.10 @ 9:17AM | By Philip Klein

Posted on 04/16/2010 7:23:03 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Reprising his role from 1995, Bill Clinton is exploiting the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing to attack critics of big government for inciting violence, and in the process, he directly singled out comments from Michele Bachmann....

Clinton pointed to remarks like those made Thursday by Representative Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican, who when speaking at a Tea Party rally in Washington characterized the Obama administration and Democratic Congress as “the gangster government.”

“They are not gangsters,” Mr. Clinton said. “They were elected. They are not doing anything they were not elected to do.”

Clinton's comments to the New York Times are part of a broader effort by the left to use the Oklahoma City bombing anniversary to accuse critics of the Obama administration of inciting violence. MSNBC plans a two-hour documentary hosted by Rachel Maddow based on interviews with Timothy McVeigh. "Fifteen years later," the show promo asks, "can McVeigh's words help us understand today's anti-government extremists?"

“They are not gangsters,” Mr. Clinton said. “They were elected. They are not doing anything they were not elected to do.”

Excuse me???? They weren't elected to run rough shod of the electorate but, that's exactly what they are doing. They weren't elected to run the country into the ground financially and they sure as heck weren't elected to ignore the CONSTITUTION.

Hey Clinton! We know they were elected, but they lied through their teeth when they campaigned for the job. The media, you and your entire party covered up for them. They ran to the center during the campaign and then governed to the far left once elected.
Clinton you have no credibility, None!

If you’ll recall, in 1996, he used the OKC bombing to run a successful smear campaign against his critics on talk radio all the way to re-election.

He was headed to a one term presidency until that happened.

The Republican takeover of House and Sentate came in 1994 because of a backlash nationwide to the behind closed doors “unelected co-presidency” of Hillary Clinton ramming through Socialized Medicine.

Tom Brokaw (or was it Peter Jennings) declared that “America threw a temper tantrum” when the Democrats lost both the House and Senate.

We are still dealing with the same media, the same long term goals, and the same partisan smears.

You want to talk “McCarthyism” and “bogus hysteria”? The smears by Democats are never critized as extremist and false rhetoric in our textbooks or media.

Oh, really "Mr. President"?

You were elected to be serviced by a big-boobed, small-brained intern in the Oval Office so that my six-year old son could ask me, "Daddy, what's a 'blow-job'?"

You, Sir, have done more damage to the fabric of this nation than all of the other "gangsters" combined!

Your 15-minutes of fame are over, get a life...far from here!

They both lie on camera. Just because they emphatically say something does NOT make it true.

Those who claim “Bush lied” need to admit their elected Democrats lie brazenly to the public.

NObama and the rest of the Congress Gang may have been elected, but I submit they are doing lots of things they were not elected to do.

No one I remember ran on a platform of taking over GM & Chrysler—telling companies how much they can pay their executives, etc.

I don’t remember Clinton getting elected to have BJ’s in the Oval Office, either.

Clinton just cannot let any opportunity to be in the spotlight pass him by, can he?

This is the third or fourth incidence this week I’ve seen of Democrats trying to tie Michelle Bachmann to McVeigh and Oklahoma City, which reeks of a deliberately planned and coordinated attack on her, similar to what has been done to Sarah Palin.

In a Rolling Stone interview Bill Clinton said the OKC bombing saved his career and ensured a second term.

We also know the FBI had no interest in any McVeigh and Nichols’s accompices.

Hmmm.

You might want to take a look at what KSM confessed to.

In early 95, there was supposed to be an attempted assassination of Clinton in the Philippines by al Quada.

The problem for the dems, Howard Dean has let it slip the dems came up with a strategy in 94-95 to paint the repubs as wanting to assassinate Clinton. The dems and their partners in crime, the MSM, began orchestrating the story.

The dems came up with the strategy, the news media orchestrated the stories, and KSM came up with a plan. Just a coincidence I'm sure.

I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.

Hillary Clinton, 2003

In the wake of the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963 liberal pundits attempted to blame the entire city of Dallas, Texas. Many liberal commentators even extended to blame the entire state of Texas, others, still not satisfied, put blame on the south. Virtually none of thought that fact that Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin, was a Communist who had defected to Russia was relevant.

In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, Bill Clinton attempted to blame Rush Limbaugh as though Limbaugh were somehow the wizard behind the curtain driving Timothy McVeigh to blow up the federal building. Somehow Clinton would have had us believe that Rush Limbaugh was Charles Manson of the radio waves.

Now Clinton attempts to do the same thing but his target is now much bigger, no less grandiose than the smears written in 1963 which were designed to defame half the geography of America and advance the media's cause célèbre of the day, civil rights. Today Clinton slanders the majority of American citizens.

But we know that Clinton is a liar, this we know because the DNA tells us so.

I’ve said it and I’ll repeat that Clintoon(both Bill and Hillary) are just as radical as 0bama, but Bill wasn’t given the power with enough members of Congress to get very far. Clintoon was saved in ‘94 by GOP Congress, Governors, and Legislatures that offsett anything he would have done. He is an always be another Demon scumbag.

Anybody up for borrowing Ramzi Yousef for a couple of afternoons to see if he can blow up Slick and Jamie Gorelick's "Chinese wall"?

Preferably with the two of them sitting on top of it .....

Maybe with the wall blown up, we'll find something indictable hidden behind it, what do you think? Receipts from Chinese PLA Intelligence, and a personal note from Hu Jintao to Slick, "Thanks for all the help, that W88 warhead works like a charm -- nice engineering!! Call me sometime, we'll do lunch."

Not only did he sell this Country our in just about every way possible, but the moral destruction he is responsible for is incalculable.

When the Pubbies get the majority back in Congress, I want them finally to go after the MSM and the NEA. Seriously.

Grab an axe and take it to the Lie Machine -- all of it. Bust up the networks and newspaper chains (especially McClatchy, hit-men on the Tea Party people), and go after the NEA like you would a fire-ant pile. Bust it up, scatter it, break its hold on education forever and break its funding sources so it can't recuperate.

George W. Bush should have done all that in 2001, his first six months in office.

I always thought what Clinton did in his linking McVeigh to the right wing and conservative distrust of government was the slimiest thing he did in his life.

Doing it again now reminds me of what a horrid person he is.

There has been open collusion between the DNC and MSM on a number of stories (including Foleygate,it came out in the subsequent congressional investigation because the MSM/DNC repeatedly said the GOP “knew and did nothing” whereas the MSM/DNC knew more, earlier, and made a pact to sit on it until October for political benefit).

IMO, they’re doing everything in their power to goad us into violence. They’ve got to find SOME way to stop the 2010 elections.

Jessie Jr thinks Blago was a crooked shake down artist, Clinton thinks Bachmann is undermining the Nation in reference to the OK bombing.

Hypocrites, crooks, liars all pointing fingers and they have no shame of how pathetic they look. And very few will call them on their outlandish behavior. Only in America

One would almost think that the regime is trying to generate enough of a perception of growing violence on the right that, come October, it may be necessary to suspend elections in the interest of domestic security.

Watch for the drumbeat to continue and grow. These a-holes aren’t the kind to acquiesce in their own demotion to minority party through the democratic process.
