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?"

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.
Me thinks he doth LUSTETH in his heart!
Worst Impeached President Ever!
William Jefferson (D-Crook) was elected to freeze ill gotten cash and abuse the people of Louisiana?
the gangster government.
Describes it to a “T”.
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!
Worst impeached President SO FAR, I would say.
Bubba and Barry are both angry POINTERs, did you notice.
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?
It’s not the anniversary of the OKC bombing for another week.
Clinton, you have peaked. Now, please go away. You are starting to sound like an old fool and are bringing back distasteful memories of Jimmy Carter. Leave please.
Interesting. I wonder if Bobby Jindal’s aide has a comment on right-wing violence.
“They are not doing anything they were not elected to do.
That’s a LIE, slick Willie. The thugs in congress were NOT elected to ignore the Constitution.
