Clinton Flack to Rush: Shut Up About Bin Laden Deal and Broaddrick Rape
NewsMax.com ^ | 3/07/03 | Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

Posted on 03/07/2003 10:28:10 AM PST by kattracks

Former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart angrily defended his old boss yesterday against a 1978 rape allegation and charges that he blew a deal for Osama bin Laden's arrest, after talk radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested the ex-president should be asked about the two scandals during upcoming appearances on CBS's "60 Minutes."

"Bill Clinton won't talk about the stuff the American people really want to know. He's not going to address Juanita Broaddrick or giving the North Koreans two nuclear reactors to play with or rejecting three offers to take custody of bin Laden," Limbaugh said yesterday.

Bristling over the remarks, Lockhart told the Washington Post that the nation's top rated radio talker should "keep his mouth shut."

The ex-press secretary then described Clinton's reported million-dollar "60 Minutes" contract as "just one way to continue being part of the public service system."

Clinton has never denied a rape allegation by Arkansas businesswoman Juanita Broaddrick, who told the Wall Street Journal in Feb. 1999 that he brutally assaulted her in a Little Rock hotel room while he was Arkansas attorney general.

He was asked about Broaddrick's charges just once, in March 1999, and told ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson, "There's been a statement made by my attorney. He speaks for me. I think he spoke quite clearly."

No reporter has ever asked the ex-president about his Feb. 2002 confession that he personally turned down a deal for Osama bin Laden's extradition to the U.S. in 1996.

"We'd been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again," Clinton told New York's Long Island Association. "They released him. At the time, 1996, he had committed no crime against America so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America."

Hear the bombshell bin Laden admission that Clinton won't discuss on "60 Minutes."

I am listening to Rush defend himself now. Rush is firing off against Clinton.

Rush said

"Sure Hillary is excited about this, she will know where Bill is for at least the 45 seconds that he is on the show"

Rush is talking now about the Howard Kurtz interview with Clinton and Lockhart's "Rush should shut up" comment.

Rush responding to Lockharts threat. Lockheart told Rush to shut his mouth.

"Former Clinton spokesman Joe Lockhart said that Limbaugh should "keep his mouth shut" and that the debates are "just one way to continue being part of the public service system," in addition to Clinton's global work on AIDS and other issues."

Rush responding by saying...
"This sounds like a verbal threat..maybe I should get a restraining order. Clinton brought up my name without being prompted to by anyone."

I think Al Sharpton is onto something with his silence on the Brawley matter. The media is entirely too silent on asking Clinton anything controversial. Here is yet another set of examples.

Joe Lockhart can go to hell.

I don't consider anyone who worked for Clinton to be a reliable source of commentary on any issue. You had to be compromised to work for the man. Do they all the sudden get a spine and a new set of morals upon termination? Lukehart, get a life bud. Your opinion and $1 might get me a newspaper if I'm unlucky enough to need one. Your opinion alone isn't worth spit.

Bwuhahahaha!

Good luck keeping Rush clamped down. They should have reponded with smoothness and cool and maybe they'd get away with it. By bristling they jst toss fuel on the fire. Watch it burn!

Just why are the clinton-admins bobbing to the surface again??? Will we never be rid of their reproach?

Rush says he is now going to dedicate the first part of his program to respond to what Clinton says on Sunday nights. He is going to start devoting the first part of his Monday show to countering what they say.

Would it not be wonderful if we could get Bob Dole to sit out and have Rush show up to talk with the "pervert", and it be live.

Can you imagine the reaction of the "pervert" to have a live Rush in front of his lying face......

NEVER FORGET

...So WHY do you think CLINTON is now suddenly going on Friend of WALTER CRONKITE's CBS-TV..?

1) CLINTON's making it possible for North Korea to have 2 Nuclear Reactors that threaten US now.

2) CLINTON's refusing 3-Free Offers to get a OSAMA bin LADEN during the 1990's that threatens US now.

BY DESIGN.

The Enemy is now Within...
and always has been.

This is going to be interesting! Monica's pleasured one fired the first salvo. I hope Rushbo goes to the mattresses. I wonder if he has the staying power to do that? Michael Savage says that Rush is too liberal for him and if I had a TV I would watch him tomorrow to see if any mention is made of this.

This is EXACTLY why NewsMax sucks and is an embarrassment to conservatives.

Lockhart did NOT say "Shut Up About Bin Laden Deal and Broaddrick Rape"

He OBVIOUSLY didn't mention the rape and neither did he mention bin Laden.

There is no need to embellish what these idiots are saying about Rush...The TRUTH (Something NewsMax is not too familiar with) is plenty. Leave the propaganda to the idiots on DUhhh.

If CBS wanted to be fair, they would put Rush up against Clinton. Now there's a fair fight. Well, maybe not quite fair, because we would win every time.

Putting Clinton up against Dole is like putting Tyson up against someone's old grandmother. CBS, your bias is showing.

I posted these Clinton quotes on another thread-these are from an interview he gave yesterday to an Australian radio show .It is mind boggling to think a former President and Commander in Chief would speak like this-truly,truly mind boggling.

" Somebody needs to, you know, tell us whether he's really disarming or not "

Does the POTUS count, dirtbag ?

" , if we have to go in there and kill a bunch of people..."

Spoken like a true Commander in Chief- Not!!!

Just like occurred with Clinton himself on many occassions ... we got a view into the soul of Lockhardt with his snap reply.

Underneath the smooth talk and showmanship ... lies abject tyranny and evil ... and not to far beneath the surface either IMHO.

Stay armed - Stay safe physically ...
Stay close to God - Stay safe spiritually.
It takes both.

I just heard him say it. I love it! Rush's audience will grow twice as big as it is now. Of course I would never listen to any program Clinton is on, and now no one else will have to either. They will know that if he said anything worth responding to, Rush will deal with it on his program. Hahahahaha

"Who is this Clinton Fella? I know who Rush is but I am not so sure of this Clinton guy or this Lockhart dude? and what is 60 minutes?"

Bill Clinton is the ex-boyfriend of handbag designer Monica Lewinski. Lockhart, I believe, is a character in the 2nd "Harry Potter" novel; and 60 minutes is apparently some kind of reality show..........you know, like "American Idol" and "Joe Millionaire"? Only not as intellectually stimulating.

You know, this sounds an awful lot like what the French President said about those countries in Central and Eastern Europe who voiced their support for US actions in Iraq.

It seems as though the cowards and Clinton's apologists can't stand to hear what others have to say.

"Just keep your mouth shut."

My, how thoughtful of you, Joe.

Check out an earlier thread on FR...CBS wanted to pair Clinton against Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, or another conservative who has a pulse and can actually express himself.

According to sources in both the CBS News and Entertainment Divisions, Clinton would only sign the deal if he was paired with Dole, and CBS willingly caved.

As I advocated earlier, I recommend anyone watching 60 Minutes tune out after the last story segment. That way, ratings for the last quarter-hour tank, and the program's overall average drops as well. If the "tuneout" is large enough, CBS will pull the plug on ol' Slick. Sunday night is the most watched night of television in the U.S. Even liberal CBS won't keep Clinton if viewers abandon the last 15 minutes of 60 Minutes...
