From Bubba to Flubba: Slew of gaffes makes pals wonder why Bill is losing it
New York Daily News ^ | April 26th 2008 | KENNETH R. BAZINET and MICHAEL McAULIFF

Posted on 04/26/2008 4:46:19 PM PDT by AmericanMade1776

He's just not the same Bubba.

Hillary Clinton's husband is still brilliant, still passionate and still a magnificent campaigner. But people who have known him and observers who have watched Bill Clinton for decades say he's lost at least half a step.

Think of him like Michael Jordan - only the past-his-prime version, playing for the Washington Wizards.

More than one acquaintance used the same words: "He's just not the same."

Colleagues point to a slew of potential reasons for Bubba stepping in it so often, including psychological and medical.

Flubba Bubba ..(snickers)... whatever..it is funny hearing news people claiming Bill Clinton has had the race card played on him.

My Guess is Bill doesn't want to call Hillary President, but whatever the reason...makes for good jokes.

I guess Bill will be going back to his bunker and his handlers. He was pretty invisible the first 5 or 6 weeks of the PA Primary campaigning...then, poof! Bill was every where...talking, and talking, and talking some more. Will ‘they’ let him out again? Can he be trusted in Indiana? Hmmmmm?

He's always made gaffes.

It's just that this time around, the MSM aren't carrying his water for him anymore - they're on The Obama Express.

Hey Bubba: Welcome to life as just another Average White Guy!

Pass the Doritos.

Flubba doesn’t want Hillary to win. He has made over $110 million since leaving office, most of it in the last five years. Most people had no idea he was raking in that much money. If Hillary becomes president, he will be under a lot more scrutiny which will cut into his earn potential. He has done what most leftists do, trade power for wealth.

Based on no information, but being an old man myself, I think that he has had a few TIAs and/or a minor stroke. In addition his years of boozing and drug taking are exacting their inevitable toll. And finally he has had to live with Hillary. That alone is enough to drive one bonkers.

I didn’t realize until recently that almost everyone who undergoes heart bypass has some brain damage. And actually last night, I read an article about Clinton which stated as much - he’s suffering from the effects of the bypass surgery. Apparently most doctors don’t/won’t tell patients this. Representative literature:

Brain May Suffer Long After Heart Bypass: Thought Impairment Lingers Post-Surgery, at: http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20020715/brain-may-suffer-long-after-heart-bypass

I had a stroke, triple bypass, and a TIA as recently as December. I have no problem speaking without soiling myself linguistically. Somehow I think, though all people react differently, the problem lies elsewhere.

It may be all of that cocaine that Slick has snorted over the years or he might have picked up a serious case of syphilis and eventually that can cause senility and derangement.

Just so. The media flunkies have deserted him and so have his associates, indicating that the fear factor is gone. Nobody, at least among those who swing in the high branches, much liked these Snopes's to begin with, but they feared the Clinton's remorseless abuse of power. No more.

Actually if Hitlary wins the nomination and the election, Slick won’t give a rat’s a$$ about scrutiny because Hitlary would have an attorney general every bit as bad as Janet Rhino and there would never be any prosecutions of any Dumbocrats.

Check out this old thread from 2004, shortly after his bypass surgery. It's the first I ever heard of "pump head" as a side effect of being on the heart-lung machine:

Found another old 2004 thread about possible bypass side effects:

Heart patients' mental decline baffles doctors

Billy boy was never quite the same after that bypass, and who knows what other diseases are catching up with him now? Mix that with his sociopathic narcissism, plus his not being the media's golden boy anymore, and it's no wonder he's melting down.

“And people wonder why I cheat.”

Honestly, I have never wondered why he cheated.

I have wondered many times why he isn't better at keeping it to himself, though.

What utter contempt he must have for that shrew of a wife that he not only cheats like crazy, but broadcasts his misdeeds for the world to see.

And what sort of woman must Hillary be that she engenders that sort of contempt. And that she stays with him regardless of how badly he embarrasses their family. I'm never in favor of divorce, but I wouldn't be up on stage holding his hand after what he's done.

Yep.

Plus I think he’s always thrown temper tantrums and, contrary to some of the opinion around here, I think he’s steamed that HE’s being rejected through the Witch not even being able to get the nomination and HE’s not to get the opportunity to be co-president again and flap his jaws on tv for the next 4-8 years from in and around the White House.
