Clinton Haters Look to Mock His Library

By DAVID HAMMER, Associated Press Writer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Just a few blocks from the future site of Bill Clinton 's $160 million presidential library, a couple of Clinton haters hope to open a museum devoted to mocking his presidency.

 

"As long as he's talking, we'll have to be here trying to keep him somewhat honest and stop him from rewriting history," says John LeBoutillier, a former Republican congressman from New York who rode Ronald Reagan 's coattails to victory in 1980.

LeBoutillier and his partner, Houston businessman Richard Erickson, plan to call it the Counter-Clinton Library. They say the museum here and one planned for Washington will look at such topics as Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, the last-minute pardons, even damaged White House furniture.

"We already hear he's going to bring a bunch of egghead economists to his library to say how great the economy was when he was president," LeBoutillier says. "And we'll find our own who can say it had nothing to do with him."

The two partners hope to open their place the same day that Clinton's opens in November 2004. They say they will need $5 million. LeBoutillier says thousands of donations have come in and the average one is $72, but he will not say exactly how much has been raised so far.

Dick Morris, the Clinton strategist who resigned in a sex scandal, has pledged stacks of his insider documents, as has Gary Aldrich, the former FBI agent who wrote a best seller about Clinton's scandals.

"We think people will want to come out of the Clinton Library and head immediately down the street to us to get the rest of the story," LeBoutillier says.

In recent appearances, Clinton said that the big picture of his presidency is being obscured and that his library will set the record straight.

The designer of the Clinton museum, Ralph Appelbaum, said the place will deal with Clinton's impeachment, but will focus on how Clinton policies smoothed the political and technological transition into the 21st century and fostered unprecedented economic growth.

LeBoutillier — who once called the late House Speaker Tip O'Neill "fat, bloated and out of control, just like the federal budget" — says Clinton's library will require immediate rebuttal in a way that libraries of other scandalized ex-presidents do not.

"Reagan, Nixon, that's the past," he says. "The problem is Clinton's still young, he's the most powerful force in Democratic politics, and he would like nothing more than to erase the past so he can return to the White House with Hillary."

Skip Rutherford, president of the foundation paying for Clinton's library, says he had hoped for a political cease-fire.

"The haters don't have to like or agree with Clinton, but they need to acknowledge that only 43 men have done this — reached the pinnacle," he says. "I think they need to move on with their lives."

Will the semen stained dress be a part of the Clinton Library? How about Vince Foster's suicide note?

The exhibit will also include a full-scale replica of the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room where visitors can pretend to engage spin control, plan diversions such as bombing aspiring factories, smear Monica and plan Lincoln bedroom fundraisers.

The exhibit space is 20,000 square feet on two levels. A 110-foot-long Timeline presents a substantive history of the day to day work of the President and his administration utilizing photographs, videos and interactive stations. In alcoves flanking the Timeline, a series of exhibits will highlight a range of domestic and foreign policy failures and exaggerations. Each story will be treated in depth and will include taxing the bejesus out of Americans, pandering to racist groups, illegal fundraising, unprecedented national security ineptitude, impeachment, and pardons for cash.

If this were to happen near the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda, CA....

Just a few blocks from Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace , a couple of concerned citizens hope to open a museum meant to give a balanced representation of his presidency.

The structure on top is what I guess to be a 3000 sf condo built tax free for him on top. I know its a guest apartment and comparing it in scale to the trailers nearby judge it to be HUGE.

Is it true that Hillary has a wing at the Clinton Liebrery? I heard that that they purchased 532,000 copies of her book for display there.

Geez, this is an unabashed, fanatical hit piece. The AP should never have run this pile of trash.

This is an excellent example of the bigotry prevalent at The AP. I highly encourage all freepers to call the editors and comment on how vile this trash is.

I can think of some great guest speakers ... Hugh Sprunt, Terry Reed, Miguel Rodriguez, Jim Norman, Charles Hayes, L.D. Brown, General Bentin Partin, Chris Ruddy, Carl Limbacher, James McDougal (oops, he's dead), Patrick Knowlton, Rom Brown (oops, see James McDougal), Congressman Bob Barr, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Ed Timperlake, Gary Aldrich, Jerry Parks (oops, see Ron Brown). That ought to be a good list for the first week.

If the timeline were accurate, fellatio would dominate 80% of the bell curve.

Well, I think the No Spin Library is fighting an uphill battle. All the conventions in Little Rock will visit the Scum Bag Library because of its advantages. The pornography section will be much larger and tax payer subsidized, there will be free condom machines all over the place, and the local black hookers will flock there, hoping to get lucky like Danny Williams momma did.

The author fails to mention that The-First-Black-President had to bulldoze a Black Historical Landmark to make room for this double-wide that will hold all the lies?

I hope that the Raptist-Who-Became-President is really enjoying watching how a real man acts while President!!
