Clinton Expects Nancy Reagan to Attend His Library Opening

Ex-President Bill Clinton expects former first lady Nancy Reagan to attend the opening of his presidential library in Little Rock on Nov. 18.

Reports U.S. News & World Report: "Clinton Presidential Foundation boss Skip Rutherford reports that the Secret Service is casing the joint and drawing up security perimeters for the event that's expected to draw President Bush and maybe even Nancy Reagan."

Both the sitting president and the iconic former first lady? Somehow we think Mr. Rutherford may be blowing smoke on this one.

A more likely guest would be Gregg "Opie" Hughes, part of the "Opie and Anthony" radio duo who were canned in 2002 for broadcasting audio of a couple having sex in New York's St. Patrick's Cathedral.

According to the Boston Herald, Bubba was spotted hanging with Hughes during a book signing Saturday on Long Island.

I guess it would be appropriate, Bill Clinton stole many of Ronald Reagan's mannerisms as he took office. Maybe Nancy could ask him why he did that?

I want to visit his funeral after drinking 12 gallons of black coffee, but that's just me.

Just don't visit the "Private Booths" or touch any of the magazines Nancy...That's not gum making the pages stick like that.

Is there any record of Clinton visiting the former President Bush's library opening?

I always get a laugh out of Rush, who refers to the place as "The Clinton Presidential Library & Massage Parlor"

Ahem.

I would treat it with a little more respect if it didn't have a refrigerator on the front porch--right next to the bench seat from and old Buick.

Nancy should attend and fall asleep during the dedication ceremony.

Of course, I say that in jest. Nancy has too much class for that.

That is a hilarious mental picture! LOL! Still, I think the ultimate fate for Bill Clinton would be to live to a ripe old age, into his nineties, perhaps.

We had a hint of what is in store for him at Reagan's funeral back in June. We saw the world leaders who took part in the Cold War. We were reminded of the great man and the great man's accomplishments. We were reminded of his character and his optimism.

All of this is stark contrast to Clinton's pathetic attempt to manufacture a legacy or garner momentary attention with his long-winded yet empty book. There he was, at Reagan's funeral, looking as though he had fallen asleep. A wonderful metaphor for his eight years in office, which was marked by scandals, insignificant legislation, and omission. He slept while Al Qaeda grew in strength.

On that day, as Reagan passed into history, the Reagan legacy began to take on a life of its own. I believe it will grow over the years, and Clinton's will diminish. I can't help but think of the movie, "Amadeus," where Salieri laments that Mozart's music becomes louder and louder with each passing year, while his (Salieri's) music grows softer and softer, until no one plays it at all.

No, I want to see Clinton live to a ripe old age.

You know, the Bent One may have a future in stand up comedy. This is hilarious!

My real wish involves a blindfold, a cigarette , a brick wall and a firing squad. The man was a traitor, along with most of his cabinet. Many Dem(on)s belong up against the same wall.

Well Opie and Anthony have always said (at least when they were on the air) that Clinton was a lousy President but probably a great guy to party with....

Besides which if you are having problems picking up women, why not hang out with the guy that is ALWAYS getting women???

Massage Parlor......LOL

This is all smoke Skippy style.
The donations are not going too well so he has to gin up the LIEBARY news using any lie possible.

Skippy and Bruce Lindsay (and that profession bimbo brigage silencer gal) win the top awards for best proppers-up of Clintonian perversions.

Arkansas and Little Rock will rue the day they allowed legitimate park land to be illegally confiscated for this base use.

Ex-President Bill Clinton expects former first lady Nancy Reagan to attend the opening of his presidential library in Little Rock on Nov. 18.

Reports U.S. News & World Report: "Clinton Presidential Foundation boss Skip Rutherford reports that the Secret Service is casing the joint and drawing up security perimeters for the event that's expected to draw President Bush and maybe even Nancy Reagan."

As hard as it may be to believe, this is a bit of a cheap shot against Bill Clinton. Whatever our opinions are of him or his Presidency, he's a member of a unique fraternity, and there are certain protocols and respects that members pay to each other.

Invitations to the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library were almost certainly extended to President Bush and all former Presidents and their widows. It would be a snub not to do so, and can sometimes be a snub to not accept such an invitation. Jimmy Carter, in his typical hubris, took the opportunity of the opening of the Nixon Presidential Library to take a shot at President Nixon, though he did attend the opening of the Reagan Library.

The Secret Service has to not only provide security for the event althogether, the individual Secret Service teams responsible for the the private security of Mrs. Reagan and the other members of the Presidential fraternity would also have to coordinate their plans and prepare for any eventuality.

Mrs. Reagan may or may not attend, and she shouldn't be faulted for whatever decision she makes, as I'm sure she would do so gracefully, but it would have been disrespectful for President Clinton to not have invited her.

How preposterous is that, for goodness sake. His sycophants will say anything to keep his name in the media.

I think Nancy will have something more important to do that day...like darning some socks.

What is the tradition when a former President opens his library?

I want to see Clinton live to a ripe old age.

I want to see Chelsea's grandchildren ask him if all the awful stuff the history teacher said about him is true. (Of course, he'll lie and say it isn't -- but he'll know that the history books, and not his lies, will be what will live on.)
