Clinton: Republican party controlled by most extreme members
By NBC's Andrew Rafferty
4 hours ago

ORLANDO, Fla. – Former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday painted Republicans as a party controlled by its most extreme members, unwilling to compromise and too conservative for former GOP leaders like Richard Nixon and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

"Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower – Richard Nixon’s too liberal for these people. It’s amazing," Clinton told the 2,000 people packed into a hotel ballroom here. He said the most right-wing members of the GOP control the party's nominations and "political operations."

**SNIP**

"The American people have to believe me on this; I have traveled all over the world, not just when I was president, but since I left,” Clinton said. “I work everywhere. I'm telling you what works; what works is cooperation. What fails is constant conflict. You've got to vote for cooperation."

Shut up Slick. Can’t you find a hooker or something and take some time off of the bull**** trail? Maybe we can send you a quarter to help out with the hooker thing.

Ergo, we now know that the ‘rat party is controlled by extremists. Blame the others for what it is you yourself are doing.

I saw a psychologist today. I mentioned during our conversation the term FUD. I had to explain it, he never heard it, which surprised me. He reacted, saying twice: “Just like Republicans”. I didn’t say anything to that.

Better: “accuse ... of” rather than “blame ... for”.

Billy is an idiot.

If the GOP was extremely conservative, Mitt Romney would have never got the nomination.

Shoot me, I actually think the current GOP House is composed of effete wussies.

Give me back the GOP Congress of the 90s.

They were extreme, extremely effective.

Mitt Romney is a Richard Nixon clone.

Bubba, aren’t there some women you could sexually assault rather than wasting time making speeches nobody cares about.

Do you not understand it yet, the media is pumping you up, but the rest of the people in the world remember you were impeached, that you were shoving cigars up the vagina of Monica in the Oval Office, that you pulled out your sick little bent weenie and asked Paul Jones to “kiss it”, you are brunt of dirty jokes by late-night comics and office emails.

You are not respected by most Americans, you are an embarrassment and a joke. Go away, drink yourself to death, whatever the hell you want, just go away. But stop believing the facade the media is spinning, you are a loser. Simple.

Yeah, Obama is a lousy President, incompetent, unqualified, but the guy never raped anyone !!!

Only ballrooms, auditoriums, high school gyms, work for Obama, Clinton, and to get supporters to their rallies, they have to give away tickets to college kids to fill them up. Biden gets candy stores, bar rooms and ice cream parlors. Sad sacks, all of them.

Bill Clinton, give it up dude, your best days are behind you (only 2000 people in Orlando where the metro has 4 million people”. Obama/Biden are toxic, to say the least!!!

Was he shaking that index finger when he said we have to believe him? I think Egypt and Libya could use his attention in a bit of conflict resolution.

Nixon believed in price controls, high taxes and tariffs.

Buddy boy, there is no kinship between Nixon and Romney.

Romney may not believe in price controls.

Perhaps because he is not but he is not president yet. Romney does however certainly believe in growing government as did Nixon.

The next president will likely have to deal with inflation (it is already here but is being covered up for the benefit of the One) and you can bet that the suggestion of price controls will come up. Do you really believe that Romney won’t consider them?

If the Republican Party was controlled by its most extreme members we would not have Romney as our candidate.

“Richard Nixon’s too liberal for these people”

Nixon? As in only Nixon can go to China? Mr. “We’re all Keynesians now”? Mr. Wage and Price Controls? Mr. Detente? Mr. EPA/OSHEA? Remind me why we’re supposed to like him. Alger Hiss?

Did Nixon say that? I thought that was Time magazine.

But you forgot dropping the gold standard.

Well he did bring the Viet Nam war to a conclusion that would have been in our favor had it not been for the communist in the congress.

“you forgot dropping the gold standard”

Yeah, but it was more of a technicality. 1933 was the watershed, which makes Nixon anticlamactic.

Projection. It amazes me how the libs love to project their pathologies on the right.

Nixon is the conservative extreme? My God are these people ill informed, delusional, brain dead, moonbat, libtard, ideologues.

“Did Nixon say that?”

I am a bit guilty of perpetuating a media myth, here. Milton Friedman said it, as reported by Time. What he actually said was that we’re all Keynesians now in one sense, but in another sense no one is. I forget what the two senses are. Nixon explicitly said “I am now a Keynesian” when we went offthe good standard. Which isn’t the exact quote, but was bundled in people’s minds with Frirdman’s quote.

So though the quote is spiffied up, he essentially said the same thing.

I was just browsing through the web when I thought of looking up the Clinton Foundation. Does Clinton actually benefit financially from his foundation? Anyway look at some of his contributors, seems like his has lots of friends in Muslim countries. Notice the UN agenda code words as well.

Yeah, since RINOs are socialist/RAT poseurs, and they control the party...I guess he's correct.
