CLINTON LOSES IT WITH REPORTER IN TUCSON!
MSNBC | 10/31/02 | stopthepress

Posted on 10/31/2002 7:20:40 PM PST by StopThePress

MSNBC just showed Clinton getting in a reporter's face after he asked him something to the effect of "Do you feel you went after Osama Bin Laden hard enough". Clinton got right in the guys face and the reporter seemed more shocked than anything else and began to studder...did anybody else see this?

I always refer to the Clinton pair as Ahab and Jezebel, for obvious reasons [a little lengthy]:

1Kings 21:1 ¶ And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 2 And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money. 3 And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee. 4 And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.

5 ¶ But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread? 6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard. 7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.>p> 8 So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth. 9 And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people: 10 And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die.

14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead. 15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead. 16 And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.

17 ¶ And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18 Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.

17 ¶ And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, 18 Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it. 19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.

20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD. 21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, 22 And will make thine house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked me to anger, and made Israel to sin. 23 And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel. 24 Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat. 25 But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.

1Kings 22:33 And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him. 34 And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: wherefore he said unto the driver of his chariot, Turn thine hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am wounded. 35 And the battle increased that day: and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot. 36 And there went a proclamation throughout the host about the going down of the sun, saying, Every man to his city, and every man to his own country. 37 So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria. 38 And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD which he spake.

2Kings 9:1 ¶ And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead: 2 And when thou comest thither, look out there Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in, and make him arise up from among his brethren, and carry him to an inner chamber; 3 Then take the box of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not.

4 So the young man, even the young man the prophet, went to Ramothgilead. 5 And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain. 6 And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel. 7 And thou shalt smite the house of Ahab thy master, that I may avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel. 8 For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel: 9 And I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah: 10 And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.

30 ¶ And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window. 31 And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master? 32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs. 33 And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.

34 And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king’s daughter. 35 And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands. 36 Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel: 37 And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.

I saw part of it. It didn't look like clinton was mad. He leaned in real close & appeard to be making excuses for his failure. He is so undignified & unpresidental. He is truly an embarrasment. I wish he would just fade away.

Does a Paul Sperry come to mind? He was able to rouse a similar reaction in Clinton.

That should be a resume enhancer in my book. Proven ability to irritate the heck out of liberals and liars.

but it's good to see the Dems falling apart at the right time (how do you say the opposite of "peaking?"

All is well and good, but Repubs must not get lazy and put forth candidates like Bob Dole (The viagra poster-boy) again, which is the Repub weakness. Try harder!

Don't put forth candidates because you feel sorry for them or because they've "earned" it. Get it?

I remember discussing the Sperry incident last year after 9/11. We were talking about the crowd photo at the National Cathedral when Bush gave his speech, where Clinton was obviously red-faced with anger over how well Bush was being received.

The picture was a wide shot of everyone, with normal flesh tones, and Clinton, who was beet-red.

Whoa! The media is finally seeing the REAL Bill Clinton. Man, did he look evil-eyed. Pretty amazing!

Here's my assessment - let's play "connect the dots":

Clinton is really feeling the heat right now, due primarily in part to the fact that he and his buddies (McAuliffe, Car-vile, Thomasson, et al) are directly to blame for propping up old doddering socialista no-show-to-the debate Fritz Mondale in MN in the first place when they could have had young, go-getter Alan Page, but passed him over because "black" wouldn't play with the MN white folks, and then producing this fiasco of a memorial service which has not played well with either the local press OR the University of Minnesota after the fact. Also according to this plea from moveon.org, Mondale has no cash, no staff and no website. Add to that the fact that the local newspaper has been caught doing push-polls to prop up Fritz' poll numbers.

Yep, Clinton and McAuliffe especially will be blamed for all this. Couple that with the fact that Clinton's most recent bimbo friend has gone back to her hubby and even one of Clinton's old media friends are starting to catch on to the Clintons' backstabbing antics, and we're just seeing the beginning of the flame-out. It'll be great TV as it all unfolds ;-).

I predict that within a few years Terry McAuliffe will be arrested for his role in the murder of Paul Wellstone. Terry the snot-nosed punk will then begin to squeal like a pig at which point Bill Clinton will be arrested for masterminding the crime. Hillary will be picked up for murdering Vince Foster, and we will all live happily ever after, reading the National Enquirer reports of Barbra Streisand being hauled off to the funny farm in a strait jacket.

Oh well, I can dream, can't I?

What did Mondale have that would be a good jumping off point for Hillary in 04?

How about '04 being the 20th Anniversary of the FIRST Woman VP Candidate...Geraldine Ferraro who was on the ticket in 1984.

How perfect for Hillary. She can promote herself as the WOMAN of the 21st Century, fighting for Women's Civil Rights in Celebration of 20 years since the last woman was nominated!

Mondale...so useful, in so many ways...

The reporter probably saw Clinton's REAL identity and it was vile and possessed.

Why else would the reporter react like that?

Allrighty then!

BJ is for Billy Jeff (could mean another thing and usually does but not a good subject during family hour) and used interchangably with Bubba reminds the readers that Klintoon is the poster boy for Trailer Trash.

PIAPS is used for the evil one herself (Hitlary) and stands for Pig In A Pants Suit. The name Ankle is used at times for that woman as is Ol' Crusty or Crusty (referring to Hitlary's truly disgusting bathing habits).

Hope that helps a bit. I remember a thread discussing these despicable folks. My ultimate preference is Florence CO or Marion IN as permanent residents of the two fine SuperMax prisons contained in these towns. I would not mind seeing the evil ones hang for their crimes.

I don't have a link, Hack, but the Clinton meltdown was at the yearly press picnic and Sperry asked him when he was going to have a press conference since he hadn't done so in a long time. Clintoon went postal. Sperry later said that Clinton put his face so close to his that he could feel Clintoon's spit. Clintoon then signaled to an aide and said not to let Sperry in again. (He later recanted due to public outrage.) I'm not sure, but I think Sperry was with the Wall Street Journal at the time. There were rumors that he got fired because of this incident. If I have any of this wrong, someone please correct me.

Now how could I ever forget this one. So Geraldine Ferraro was the First VP Candidate but I find that point to be meaningless. I don't understand the big deal about women being the First regarding gender. If they can do the job, why bring up an issue of gender? It just belittles them even more.

BTW...back when Clinton was in power, I had a nice long discussion with two gentleman in his Secret Service Security detail, and I asked them what would happen if I said something so embarrassing to Der SchleekMeister that Slick came after me physically. Both agreed that American citizens have the Right to Defend themselves, and as long as I let Slick Willie get in the first punch, I would be within my rights to whup Slick's arse and the SS would not intervene until Slick's life was in danger.

The Leftist RATS so bereft of ideas that they believe they can only win by continuing to fool the American Sheeple, and Slick Willie's the only dude whose been able to do it consistently. Therefore, the Left will continue to support Der SchleekMeister until the Right proves--via Re-Impeachment, Indictment, Convictions, and Imprisonment--that Americans are no longer falling fer Slick's schtick.

Bump back to the top with this info:

I think this happened in Eugene, maybe thread title needs changed again. Saw this a couple days ago, and the local station is rather proud of the video now, they play it on every news promo spot.

I have seen the video of this a few times, it's pretty much as described upthread. The sinkmaster looked like he was drunk.

Here is the account of the local reporter from http://www.kmtr.com

(no direct link to the article, it's in a frame - there is a small photo, didn't see a video):




Local Reporter Hits a Sore Point with Clinton
Carlo Brigola

After Clinton finished his speech and walked through the crowd NewsSource reporter Carlo Brigola got a chance to ask him a couple of questions close up. It was a rare moment that obviously hit a very sore subject with former president Clinton. After the traumatic experience of 9-11 and the war on terrorism, he asked the former president if he felt he should have done more to stop Osama bin Laden. Here is his complete answer.

“Mr. Clinton...do you wish you did more with bin Laden when you were in office.” “What did I do? You asked me the question. What did I do? I asked you a question. You asked me a question. What was it that I did?,” said Clinton. “You went after him. I’m asking if you should have gone after him harder.” Clinton said, “Let me remind you that the republicans who are now in power attacked me for what I did. They said he was not a threat at all. And when I told them he was the number one threat in the world they ridiculed me. Now they are saying I should have done more when they said I shouldn’t have done what I did do. Did everything I could legally do. I went after him, I tried to get him. I would have attacked him again if I had known where he was. We didn’t have the legal right to base soldiers or use airspace in the event of an invasion. So I contracted with people in Afghanistan and paid them with the CIA and the Intelligence committee and the republicans knew this. They were doing everything they could to apprehend him for years. I always thought he was a very serious threat. The proper issue is that I regret I didn’t get him and if I thought I could have done more I would have because I always thought then and I think now that the Al Qaeda network is number one threat to our security. In the short run, much more than Iraq or anything else. So, that’s why I said that if President Bush wanted to send more troops to Afghanistan to further the radication efforts, I would support that. Right. Now, we have only half as many troops in Afghanistan as we had in Bosnia to keep the peace after the war. So, yes I think that’s what we out to be doing.”

After that exchange, I went on to ask the former president what he felt should be done with the Iraqi situation. He said that diplomacy through the United Nations should be our first goal, which he said Secretary of State Colin Powell is correctly doing, but if that doesn’t work, Clinton says the use of force could be the only option.

Meanwhile, the cold weather didn’t stop folks from waiting outside Mac Court for a chance to see the former president. A line formed early this morning with people waiting to enter the building. This political rally was intended to not only gain support for senate candidate Bill Bradbury, but to get young people involved in the political process. Nonetheless, the big attraction was William Jefferson Clinton.

“I’m here to see Bill Clinton, period, only reason.” “I’m here also for both Bill Bradury and Clinton.” “It is freezing cold, but I am here to see Clinton, I thought he was fabulous and you know it’s great to be here. “ “Unfortunately I to am here to see Clinton, you gotta love Clinton, he’s such a draw.” Around 10:30, the doors opened and all these folks were able to get inside after security checks, and find their seats.

I do wonder if that reporter suddenly realized the feasibility of the body count, a matter which he has probably heard of, but, in typical reporter fashion, never bothered to dig into. Bill, and people like him, don't kill for some grand reasons, they kill to cover their sins and get revenge for slight offenses. No big conspiracy theories necessary to understand the bodies around him - just typical pettiness, plus power, run amok.

God sees it all.

Thanks for the ping, Mud. Kitkat, Mud, here's the Paul Sperry moment:

FIGHT CLUB: FURIOUS CLINTON ORDERS REPORTER BANNED AFTER GRILLING!

DRUDGE REPORT TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1999 17:09:42 ET

Thanks NancyRides


**Exclusive**

A furious President Clinton has ordered a Washington reporter banned from the White House, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, after the reporter quizzed the president during a press picnic about illegal money from China and the campaign-finance scandal!

Paul Sperry, Washington bureau chief of INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY, was thrown off the invite list at the White House after he grilled the president for more than 10 minutes about various political scandals.

"It turned into a real shout match on the south lawn," one eyewitness told the DRUDGE REPORT.

At one point during the argument, President Clinton put his hands up to both sides of his head, wiggled them, rolled his eyes and gave Sperry a funny face.

"Make sure that guy never gets close to me again!" the president ordered one of his aides after the showdown.

White House press secretary Joe Lockhart, angry that Sperry transformed a family picnic into a confrontational press conference, told an associate that Sperry is a "Class A s**thead."

Lockhart personally informed Sperry during a phone conversation late Monday that he would never be invited back to the White House.

"The only regret we have is inviting you -- and we won't make that mistake again," Lockhart warned Sperry.

It began innocently enough.

"When are you going to have your next formal press conference, Mr. President?" Sperry casually asked Clinton while he was shaking hands and socializing with reporter and their families.

Clinton: "I don't know. I'll have one."

Sperry: "When?"

The president replied, "Why?"

Sperry: "The American people have a lot of unanswered questions."

Clinton: "Like what!"

Sperry: "Questions about illegal money from China and the campaign-finance scandal."

It was at that point that Clinton started to become unglued.

"Who are you with?" Clinton demanded to know.

"I don't like your accusatory tone. It sounds like you've already got the story written."

Sperry gave the president his business card and said that the public wanted answers about the allegations of illegal contributions from China.

Clinton: "I've been all around this country, and you are the first person to ask me about it. Not one person has brought that up... You want to know the only person who has been linked to money from China? Haley Barbour and the RNC, that's who!"

A red-faced Clinton began to rant about Waco, Republicans, the FBI and gun control.

Pictures taken by a newspaper photographer show Clinton wagging his finger in Sperry's face, Washington's version of THE FIGHT CLUB.

Sperry says he was stunned and "woozy" for hours after.

When asked on Tuesday if he felt intimidated during his one-on-one with the most powerful man in the world, Sperry said: "No, he's only about a half an inch taller than I am."

Yes I figured she will try to pull off something like that. And that's a probem because she makes women in general look weak. Not all women think affirmative action is the way to the White House! And Hillary certainly does not speak for me!

"We create our own hell on earth.
Clinton is turning into the Jake LaMotta of politics."
~bor

The best analogy I've heard, yet.

Can almost see 'em, now.

...desperately prying rhinestones outa a Presidential Seal using a screw driver.
