W fought a good fight, Clinton says
New York Daily News ^ | 4/16/03 | Joel Siegel

Posted on 04/16/2003 1:33:58 AM PDT by kattracks

"Saddam is gone and good riddance," former President Bill Clinton said yesterday, but he urged President Bush to resist trying to get even with nations that opposed the war.

"There are German and French soldiers in Afghanistan today. Does the President want them to come home?" Clinton said at a Manhattan forum on corporate integrity.

He praised Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld for their handling of the war, but said Bush should have waited longer before attacking for the "chance that either [Saddam Hussein] would have disarmed or ... we would have had far more members of the Security Council with us."

Clinton also said Bush should not be faulted if banned weapons of mass destruction aren't found.

"I don't think you can criticize the President for trying to act on the belief that they have a substantial amount of chemical and biological stock. ... That is what I was always told," Clinton said.

That's what's called "damning with faint praise".

Shut up, Billy Boy. You're worse than useless.

Impeached, disbarred, disgraced, and he gets invited to speak at a forum on corporate integrity? Too much.

"Clinton said at a Manhattan forum on corporate integrity."

They should feel a true sense of bonding....the rapist and liar breaking bread with a room full of the most notorious thieves and liars in the united States of America.

"...corporate integrity....." a clear example of a dichotomy in meaning; a twenty-first century daylight rape of the English language.

Certainly, the rapist-in-chief was amongst his own.

What does it take? When will slick Willie stop talking? When will the media remember that ex-Presidents are supposed to retire and keep their noses OUT of the current President's business?

This is getting insane!!! No Republican ex-president has made ANYTHING like the commentaries that Jimbo And Bubba have made recently.

Hey everybody: it's GOOD that Clintone keeps talking! He will continue to be a constant reminder to the public that HE TOTALLY EMBODIES what the Dems are all about. Remember what Carter did for us? We milked that for 12 years. I hope Clinton shows his face all the time.

But Bill wouldn't have done it and the country understands this. He would habe made a couple of speeches, made a few phones calls and then sulked back into the White House study for another BJ from Monica while deluding himself with the thought that he "did everything he could do".

Some people are great. Others have greatness thrust upon them. Bill was neither.

Who gives an F what he thinks or says.

I am happy our troops defeated Saddam but I was ten times happier to see Clinton leave office without us firing a shot. I truly expected him to start another civil war to hold onto power as long as he could.

I don't think there's much difference between Saddam and Clinton except that Saddam was more skilled at rigging elections. Given unlimited control and the amen corner of the liberal koolaid-drinking media, I don't doubt Clinton would have eventually moved on to detaining dissidents, torture chambers, secret police, gassing communities that stood opposed to his will, raping young girls and muzzling any outlet for opposition. Tyrants always do. When you look at such things as Waco, Juanita Broaddrick, the stolen FBI files, tax auditing political opponents and consorting with nations like Cuba, China, Vietnam and North Korea, the warning signs were all there. We were just too strong as a nation to succumb the way Iraq did to Saddam.

Clinton has a difficult time knowing what to do with himself now because most of his heroes never relinguished power until death.

Glad you asked, Sinkmaster.

Yes, I want them to go home. We don't need them.

I'll give Clinton credit for one thing.

He has got to have the biggest set of gonads ever to walk the planet.

The crap that comes out of his mouth is amazing.

He gives a whole new meaning to the word "Chutzpah"

Clinton said at a Manhattan forum on corporate integrity. As a corporation owner, I would like to know which corporations actually sponsored this HUGE waste of time. So would the stockholders, I'm sure. And I'll bet that said corporations DON'T WANT anybody to know- for exactly that reason.

Why would anyone have Clinton talk on integrity? Was it as comic relief? Sarcasm? Or as a 'don't let this happen to you' example of lack of integrity? He's such an embarassment that just won't go away.

WTH? CLinton speaking on 'integrity'?

Next thing you know, Clinton will be speaking in mega-churches at men's conferences telling Christian men how to be better husbands. [Oh, that's right... Bill Hybels already had him do that.]

Jeez. You can always count on Clinton to come down on the wrong side of anything, even when his statement is nominally in support of the right side. He simply can't help himself.

How on Earth did this festering chancre on the buttocks of humanity get elected President twice? And what is he doing at a forum on corporate integrity?

With each day that passes since Clinton and his 40 thiefs left office his personna and tarnished reputation are deminished further by what he continues to say, ad nauseum, and what we learn of his actions past and present. It has only been a scant 3 years and his light is all but distinguished, except for the don't confuse me with the facts loyalists. And of course, among the EU wannabes.

"That's what's called "damning with faint praise".

Exactly correct assessment, just a minor correction:

The 4th word should be feint: "A deceptive action calculated to divert attention from one's real purpose."

I don't doubt Clinton would have eventually moved on to detaining dissidents, torture chambers, secret police, gassing communities that stood opposed to his will, raping young girls and muzzling any outlet for opposition.

Would have?

Already had.
