Claire McCaskill: Rand Paul remarks ‘infuriating’
Politico ^ | 1 28 14 | Tal Kopan

Posted on 02/02/2014 2:53:29 AM PST by BarnacleCenturion

Sen. Claire McCaskill on Tuesday slammed recent comments by Sen. Rand Paul tying President Bill Clinton’s infidelities to the so-called war on women as “infuriating,” saying Republicans keep getting into trouble talking about women.

The Missouri Democrat was talking about comments from Paul this Sunday on “Meet the Press” that Democrats decrying a “war on women” give Clinton a pass.

“The Democrats — one of their big issues is they’ve concocted this, ‘Republicans are committing a war on women,’” the Kentucky Republican said. “I think, really, the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this. He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior.”

The truth hurts, eh? Clinton’s nasty habits haven’t dropped down the memory hole and surely should be revisited when his enabler, Hillary, runs in ‘16.

‘ll bet there is still a copy of that treacly video of her in the pink suit, under the portrait of Lincoln no less, lying her ass off about his predatory behavior. That should make a great campaign ad for her opponent...along with the inevitable ‘three o’clock in the morning phone call from Benghazi” ad, of course.

Is this not why many of us think politicians on the left are lying thieves? This woman is as slippery and slimy as any of them. She is on Hillary’s enemies list for saying in the past that she would not trust her daughter with Bill Clinton..She probably had an unguarded moment on that day when she decided to speak the truth. Now, she will make deals, grovel, lie or do what she has to do to maintain her lofty lifestyle up there in D.C. Top of that list is to attack Rand Paul for speaking the truth. Hope she loses next election.

"I think I can speak for most women to say that I found what he said infuriating.

UM, NO, YOU CAN'T!

"I think most women understand that they should not be held accountable for the behaviors of their husbands."

BUT WOMEN ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN BEHAVIOR - EVER HEARD OF DIVORCE?

"And you know, frankly, it was a long time ago," and our country did very well under the leadership of Bill Clinton.

AT THIS POINT, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

“McCaskill, a supporter of a presidential run by Hillary Clinton,”

Cows of the feather.........
Probably have a lot in common, like being treated like a
door mat. Stockholm syndrome no doubt. Her only real
accomplishment in life is proving that 54.7%of the voters
in Missouri are blithering idiots.

From wiki:
Except for three years spent in private practice as an attorney at the firm of a Kansas City trial lawyer (1989 to 1991), McCaskill has worked in the public sector continuously since graduating from law school in 1978.

Lol. She’s mad that the rug has been pulled out. Pretty laugable for the candidacy (and her surrogates) of a woman married to a serial sexual predator and accused rapist to be claiming the GOP is having a war on women.

It’s going to be a lot of fun taking on Hillary Clinton when they dig up the whole Whitewater scandal—one that has not been properly resolved even to this day!—all over again during the 2016 campaign. And that’s on top of what happened in 2012 in Benghazi....

You tube => "I said at the time I think he's been a great leader, but I don't want my daughter near him."

____________________________________________________________

When Claire says 'at the time', she must be talking 1999 or 2000. According to this NY Magazine article, her daughters were 23 and 21 in Nov 2012 => NY Magazine article

Oops.

He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior.

I get tired of this crap that the country did well because of the genious Clinton. He was a womanizer and he rode the financial boom of the “dot-com” growth that kicked the economy into high gear. He vetoed welfare reform twice I think before passing it when the polls told him to. He benefited from the Republican’s “Contract With America” that further boosted the economy. Yet, Bill the buffoon gets the credit. Time to fight back and straighten out his legacy.

“I love it when the rat fink commie bastards get infuriated.”

After 2016, I hope to see them in a constant state of infuriation for the remainder of my life - basically, in the way that Carter made it impossible to elect a liberal for almost 30 years.

McCaskill is the one who keeps pushing to eliminate the presidential requirements, specifically NBC, in the Constitution. She was also on the 6 member Senate committee, along with Hillary and the usurper, who vetted McLame’s NBC in Senate Resolution 511 where they unanimously agreed NBC meant born in USA of two US citizens. I’ve yet to see the msm bring that up to the usurper.

Whitewater, Vince Foster, Ron Brown, the entire Clinton Death Pool, the defense of The Rapist...might as well throw Chandra Levy in there too.
