Clinton's Seeing a Shrink
Chicago Suntimes ^ | 07-23-02 | Michael Sneed

Posted on 07/23/2002 4:59:00 AM PDT by Musket

Sneed hears rumbles former President Bill Clinton is seeking help in adjusting to his new life as an ex-U.S. commander in chief.

Rumor is Clinton, who was hesitant to seek overt professional counseling when he was in office--especially during the Monica Lewinsky episode--is reportedly having a difficult time making the transition into private life.

Latest New Yawk squawk via the Hillary grapevine is that her hubby may be getting some sort of professional psychological counseling to assist in his transition.

(Daughter Chelsea is getting more publicity than her dad these days.)

P.S.: Bill Clinton will be in town today addressing the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition annual conference at the Hyatt Regency.

Think they'll share after the Hildabeast gets booted?

Probably the shock of seeing everything he read for 8 years from the propagandizing Washington media about his presidency were lies and don't reflect the attitudes of the people in the real world.

By the looks of the picture you posted - clinton must also be seeing Hillary's hair dresser in addition to a shrink. Is Billy dyeing his hair blond? First sign of a real mid-life crisis.

Few more obvious things have ever been said. The guy will attend a supermarket opening if he thinks there is a chance he's going to get on TV. And I'm sure that by now his lack of popularity in some circles must be more obvious than in the past. He's always been so concerned about his "legacy" can you imagine how you would feel if you had the opportunity to be as much a part of history as him, and ended up an utter disgrace and embarrassement. Your name is a punch line, and your "legacy" a joke?

I'd need therapy too if I were him.

I'll bet that in the next three to five years, (as soon as he and the "bride of chuckie" divorce) he blames it all on his handlers and claims to find jesus. don't be fooled though. I'm sure it will be no more sincere than anything else he's ever done.

Yes his legacy is a very bad joke, "wonderful economy and Middle East peace". And by now even hookers and strippers probably ignore him even if he's got enough cash.

He would need to have a conscience for this to be true. This reporter is just trying to dredge up sympathy for the bastard. Now, if it said he was seeing a skank . . . .

I hope nobody takes this too seriously. If this came from the "hillary grapevine" as the article says, you know there is a reason for this little leak. First of all, I don't believe it. Second, if it should happen to be true on any level, it's because he is having an affair with the therapist or he is trying to generate sympathy for himself to cover any future law-breaking tactics he employs.

Clinton's Seeing a Shrink

In the olden days Clinton would "see a shrink" everytime Hillary came into the bedroom.

Sounds like an HBO movie, doesn't it? I guess my point is that NOTHING is an unfortunate leak when it has to do with the clintons. This was planned - we just have to figure out why.

"Female, no doubt."

First prize for getting to the heart of the matter. My first thought on seeing the title was---"obviously a female shrink--I'm sure he will be spending a lot of time "on the couch" with her".

What sort of deep-seated megalomania does it reflect on one who needs psychological help to adjust to no longer being in the limelight!?

IMO, what is probably getting to Clinton most is the fact that women all those years were attracked not to him but his power - and now that his power is gone, never to come back, the Monicas of the world are going elsewhere and Clinton is stuck with the choice of either a blow-up doll or Hillary. Some choice.

Could be that he is setting up a defense of insanity for any future crimes he may have to go to court for ? As you can see, I suspect this character of just about anything !

He should take all of his ill-gotten financial gains and donate them to a pro-life or anti-sex addiction group, shave his head like the corrupt exPresident of Korea Chun, go to a mountain retreat, stay up there for three years, keep his big trap shut, and silently reflect on all the damage he did to our country and young people and business morals, and then come back down and issue a specific apology to all of us. Then retire quietly like LBJ or Harry Truman in the country side (and NO idolatry like a Presidential Library).

Then, I would say he would be 'redeemed' in some measure.

(Of course, this will happen after penguins are found in Southern New Mexico.)

Getting the blame for a daughter that ugly when its really Web Hubbles fault and everyone seeing her pics in the paper everyday would put anyone in therapy.

This was planned - we just have to figure out why.

I want to point out that, with this leak, he has technically released a 'medical record', which he didn't do in his campaigns or while he was in office.

My experience in these many years of Clintoon watching is that something like this is leaked just before something that would be considered 'bad news' gets out.

The bad news is usually a companion story. In this case, we'll find out something (marriage in trouble, Chelsea's a drunk, etc) and then when we'd normally go, "Man, what a f**ked up bunch of people", the media will swoop in with the soothing reassurance that "they're getting help".

Make no mistake... you don't know anything about them that they don't want you to know...

Well, I do hope the shrink collects the fee up front. And wouldn't you just love to be that shrink refusing Hillary's telephone calls??? Or telling him to "cut the crap",,it would be so rich. My guess is it is misinformation put out to justify Hill staying with him and to deflect from Chelsea's behavior,,they will blame it on dad.

Your name is a punch line, and your "legacy" a joke?

I recall one of Johnny Carson's "Karnak" bits:

A: Uniroyal, Tuck, and Clinton.
Q: Name a tire, a friar, and a liar.

I'd need therapy too if I were him.

The really sad thing is that he could have been a really effective politician if he'd gotten the therapy a few decades earlier. Even his worst enemies don't deny that he's good at the game.

You got that one right. Clinton doesn't need a shrink, he needs an exorcist.

This is not new with him; even at the beginning of his eight pitiful years, he'd be gray/silver when he needed to look Presidential, yet have his strawberry blonde for the MTV crowd...
