The Note: 9/11/2006

One Nation

BY MARK HALPERIN, DAVID CHALIAN, TEDDY DAVIS, MATT STUART, and EMILY O'DONNELL with KARUNA SESHASAI, CATRIN JONES, MONA RAPHAEL, and ERICA ANDERSON

— - WASHINGTON, Sep. 11

In this week's New Yorker, David Remnick turns in an excellent and truly must-read behind-the-scenes look at Clinton's post-presidential life and travels.

For those interested in all things Clinton, it has Bill Clinton on the record saying things he normally won't say on those terms ("I am sick of Karl Rove's bullshit." and attacking the Washington Post's Sue Schmidt), and talking about presidential politics, including saying John Edwards ran too soon.

Ugh. I'm not interested in anything Clinton. However, in the way one keeps a wary eye on anything potentially dangerous, I try to follow what they say and do. It's not an interesting activity.

Susan Schmidt's reporting on the D'Amato Watergate hearings was a beacon of integrity in the MSM press. I believe she alone knew enough to get him impeached and convicted on far more substantial charges than Starr ended up going after.

"How's that "new tone" working out?"

Other than keeping a number of Clintonoids that later stabbed him in the back (Richard Clarke), the other big mistake Bush has made is to help this Bozo rehabilitate his image and give him a stage to do it. I can't stand the fact Bush's dad treats Clinton with such respect and then Clinton and his wife go out and trash Bush like he's pond scum.

There is a twisted, sick alliance here with the Bush dynasty...and IMHO, it relates to the NWO, North American Union covert plan...

I believe President Bush entered the office of Presidency knowing the main stream press would never give him the benefit of the doubt on anything. In a war of words between him and the left, they would provide cover for their friends on the left, and use any words or action on his part to paint him (and his party) as being mean and petty.

So this President has taken the high road, he has shown nothing but grace, humility, and forgiveness towards those that have attacked him. Daily going about the public's business.

I know this approach has angered many on the right, includeing many on this forum, who want him and his administration to get into the trenches fight as dirty as those that attack him.

But this President has had the beneifit of watching and learning from previous Republican administrations. When your opponents control the media, you will never win a pissing contest.

Elections are not won only on the support of one extreme of the spectrum or the other. Elections are won by those voters in the middle that consider themselves moderate.

As many have noted, President Bush is not a conservative, he is just to the right of center. Anyone that gets elected to the office must either really be someone in the middle (or like President Clinton, be able to convince enough voters that he is).

The left has tried a number of tactics to bring down this President, they have all failed. The reason, unlike what they did to Nixon, the media has been unable to demonize President Bush. It is my opinion that if President Bush had went after the Clintons, or got into no hold brawls with the Democrats over every issue, the media would have been able to demionize him, and would have been able to bring him down.

The secret to winning is to play your own game, not the other guys. The President just keeps on pushing his agenda, being nice to the opposistion, and as Rush likes to say, this drives them crazy, forcing them to even more extreme action.

The latest from Bill Clinton reflect more on him then it does on this administration, and for one I can only say, keep talking Bill, we need the votes.

I totally agree; it bugs me to no end to see the ever-gracious Bush family associate with the trailer-trash Clintons. (And apologies to all white-trailer-trash-Americans...I figure you probably hate being associated with the Clintons, too).

But, I figure in the old adage of "what goes around, comes around." And whether it's in this life or the aftermath, the Clintons will get their just desserts for their behavior.

And besides: while the "New Tone" demeanor includes not responding in kind to the Left's perpetual infantile behavior, it does offer us a striking choice in contrasts. In the long term, it does serve to remind us voters who we'd rather have running the Big Show: Adults (Republicans) or children (Dhimmocrats).

Somehow, I doubt this includes all of whom he slept with, or depending on the definition of the word "IS, is" had s*x with.

I went out to try to find the New Yorker of 9/18 to see what Clinton's complaint about her was these many years later, since the link to ABC doesn't give any details, and I can't find the article (only a brief interview with the author) at the New Yorker website.(Too bad 9/25 NY'er on stands already.) Especially with Clinton's interest made obvious by the rage over The Path in keeping his history censored.
