Jim Inhofe: Bill Clinton comments 'unconscionable'
Former President Bill Clintons comments surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing commemoration are unconscionable and an over-the-top effort to silence critics, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said Tuesday.
Clinton has drawn fire for reprising criticism he made of conservative talk radio 15 years in the wake of the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building that took 168 lives and injured more than 500 others.
I could not believe it when I first saw the Clinton remarks that he had come out again, 15 years later, and talked about this being precipitated by right wing talk radio, Inhofe said in an interview for POLITICOs Arena forum. This is an over-the-top effort to try to stop a movement of people who arent amenable to supporting Obama programs, like cap and trade, government-run health care and closing Gitmo.
Clintons remarks have fostered a spirited back and forth about the role of increasingly heated political rhetoric by tea party protesters and others.
Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), for instance, warned the former president not to cheapen the memory of the Oklahoma City bombing by comparing the anti-government sentiment that fueled it to the anti-Washington anger that drives the tea party movement. But former Rep. Mickey Edwards, an Oklahoma Republican who represented the Oklahoma City area from 1977-1993, said in Arena that Clintons remarks were taken out of context and were actually more nuanced.
Inhofe saw the issue in starker terms.

Mickey Edwards is a liar, a coward and has taken to sitting on panels that trash conservative Republicans, of course he’d defend Clinton.
Once again, it must depend on what the definition of "is" is.
It Clinton touches it - it’s cheapened.
If Obama touches it, it’s material for hazmat disposal.
The impeached Clinton, the nations top embarrassment as a president. Pathetic Liar in Chief.
"Nuanced" - Lib speak for "you are too stupid to understand what we are saying"
Clinton is slime.
And why would we think some anonymous law professor we've never heard of would know ANYTHING about the subject?
unconscionable With him it could be no other way.
Just like it only takes a few leaders “on the margins” with millions of kool-aid drinking followers to vote them in, to bring about socialism and bankrupty to the United States within less than 18 months.
It will be remembered that Clinton got the eleven points he needed for re-election from covering up the Middle Eastern/Islamist connections to OKCBomb researched by Jayna Davis.
Any relation to “Gwen” the “neutral” debate moderator? How many Ifill’s can there be running around?
So who thought Bill Clinton had a conscience?
COLLUDING TO FUND DEMOCRATS' VOTE-BUYING MACHINE
Clinton pictured above with ACORN founder Wade Rathke.
The tax-exempt Clinton Foundation had just donated $250,000 to ACORN.
BACKSTORY In addition to the $250,000, the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation also provided $275,000 in tax-exempt grants supposedly for ACORNSS "Katrina Benefits Access project" and ACORN'S "Operation Hope Project; Restore Hope." The tax-exempt Clinton Foundation also helped secure "private sector" commitments for ACORN.
JUST WONDERING Can ACORN produce records on how they spent the money? Oh, nevermind. The IRS, SEC, FBI, Congress and the GAO can find out (/snic).
The IRS has pinpointed tax-exempts and non-profits as the locus classicus for money laundering and tax evasion (stolen money is taxable). The biggest frauds are tax-exempts writing checks to other tax-exempts---the way these "altruistic do-gooders" siphon off, then launder, tax-free monies for themselves.
The Rathkes embezzled millions from ACORN --- but their activities offshore gives rise to concerns about massive govt fraud and money laundering.
Since 1970, ACORN has organized in 1,200 neighborhood chapters in 110 cities across the US and in cities in Canada, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Peru, Argentina and India.
ACORN also appears to have been involved in improper use of pension funds ..... some of the Rathke embezzlment was apparently taken from the pension fund using ACORN's American Express card. This displacement of funding led to the creation of a complex repayment system in which accused embezzler Dale Rathke owed ACORN, and ACORN in turn, owed ABA, which, for its part, wrote off part of the money.

ACORN receives funding from a variety of tax-exempt private charitable organizations: the Bauman Family Foundation, George Soros' Open Society Institute, the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and from corporate foundations, including JP Morgan Chase Foundation, Ben & Jerry's foundation, Bank of America Charitable Foundation, and Citigroup, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and tax-exempt foundations affiliated with the founder of (UPS). (NPR: ACORN's Money Tree Has Many Branches, October 15, 2008).
A full list of ACORN and ACORN affiliate donors is available from the Capital Research Center, a non-profit organization which studies political advocacy groups. (Foundation Watch, 2008: Capital Research Center Cracks the ACORN)
Look its Clinton. He is an assclown. That he would publicly make stupid comments is hardly anything new..
The next huge TEA party gathering might be in OK City, huh?
Your work with that of Carol Moore and Jayna Davis keeps it in the foreground serving as those WRONG WAY signs on the interstate exit ramps.
It is readily apparent there is to be more bloodshed by a totalitarian regime as pretext for its propaganda.
Let Bill Clinton and Barak Obama remember it was Malcolm X after JFK's assassination, and Jeremiah Wright after 911 who said America's "chickens comin' home to roost".
Only the America-hating Left could take demonic delight in human suffering.
We won't be fooled.
Good slideshows potlatch!
A WACO graphic - Lots of careful work -
clinton managed to personally be responsible for the deaths
at waco, cover it up, then blame republicans for oklahoma city
and win re-election. he has been made a multimillionaire with
little or no effort and treated as a great statesman by those who control
msm, universities, textbooks, government, etc. and yet, republicans never
called him out on waco, never investigated it when george bush and
repubs had government. in fact, w’s dad made cosy with him. the blood
of those people is on his hands and will never wash out. i hope when that
final heart attack hits, it is the flames of waco that flash in his mind.
Hey, it’s the clinton’s.. everything is one big “Right Wing Conspiracy” unless you have a blue dress with DNA on it.
Would you really sell it at a discount or autoclave it before disposal?
Yes, I want to put a lot of text in the Waco Slideshow and you know I'm a perfectionist.
[Only the America-hating Left could take demonic delight in human suffering.]
They seem to have something missing in their ‘makeup’, it's called a conscience I believe.
We've got a lot of things to ‘never let them forget’.
Good information Liz.
Of course - Dems' comments are always nuanced and, when controversial, taken out of context.
Clinton is slime.
Right. For years now the evil communist American media has been busily polishing the image of the TURD known as Bill Clinton.
Right ......... Bill Clinton is slime.
Two sentence description of the Clinton Legacy ----
Never elect a sociopath as President.
A slime more interested in screwing the hired help than in protecting the country.
