  • Little Rock Airport to be renamed for Bill and Hillary Clinton

    Arkansas Times ^ | 16 MAR 2012 | Max Brantley
    The Little Rock Airport Commission has scheduled a discussion at its meeting Tuesday to rename the airport the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. The idea has kicked around for years, with varying amounts of cheering and jeering. Hillary Clinton served for a time as legal counsel to the airport. I'm guessing the votes are in hand now to honor Arkansas's native son president and his wife, the secretary of state. It's better than a guess. Our FOI request early today produced 1) renderings of various proposed sign treatments including the one above; 2) the resolution the commission has up...
  • Bill's hissy fit

    Talk about deja vu all over again. There was something awfully familiar about Bill Clinton's hissy fit on Fox News last Sunday. What was it, exactly? The finger-pointing? The raised voice? The way he kept interrupting his interviewer? The mounting furor that threatened to reach red-in-the-face levels despite the pancake makeup? The attribution of base motives to a reporter who'd dared question him about something he'd done? Or, in this case, what he hadn't done to prevent a terrorist attack on this country. It was an operatic performance. All the Sturm und Drang was there, if not the art. But...

    All you need is ubuntu You and me, me and you, lots and lots, for us to do By Sean Coughlan BBC News Magazine Bill Clinton told the Labour conference to get into ubuntu. Eh? Ubuntu. That was what Bill Clinton told the Labour party conference it needed to remember this week. "Society is important because of Ubuntu." But what is it? Left-leaning sudoku? U2's latest album? Fish-friendly sushi? No, it's a word describing an African worldview, which translates as "I am because you are," and which means that individuals need other people to be fulfilled. The former president, husky-voiced...

    Clinton turns 60: Second wind with the Stones By Laszlo Trankovits Aug 18, 2006, 12:20 GMT Washington - Bill Clinton is a master of self invention. Nearly every American knows the photograph of the star-struck 16- year-old youth, worshipfully shaking the hand of President John F Kennedy - symbolic of his teenage dream to live in the White House someday. Nearly six years after the end of his spectacular presidency, Clinton is still mining the suggestive power of photographs. His picture is everywhere - at the AIDS conference in Toronto with Bill Gates, in Southeast Asia with the elder President...
  • The Clinton library's sanitized history

    Maybe I haven't visited enough presidential libraries. And, yes, I do know they all inevitably have something worshipful about them; it's in their nature. But I can't recall anything - anything! - so blatantly partisan, so full of just plain bullfeathers, so completely . . . Orwellian in its approach to the truth as one display at the newly opened Clinton Library here in Little Rock. You really need to see it to disbelieve it. [snip]But as every apparatchik knows, the real trick to disguising propaganda as history isn't what's said but what isn't. Some terms are clearly verboten in...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — As former President Bill Clinton's library is unveiled at a gala opening this week, one thing is certain: His messy legacy will be on full display. One alcove will be dedicated to impeachment, and organizers have promised not to sidestep even Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones. The 58-year-old political superstar is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year to his library.

    MIDI - END OF THE INNOCENCE For several years they sang his song…he was a hero to their cause In denial many lived…he placed himself up above the laws He knew all of the right things to say…down through…hell and then back believers would goIn eight long years he's done to us…more damage than you know For his neglect we would finally pay the price…the count's three thousand dead We know just where to place the blame…it is on Bill Clinton's head When the Cole was hit and brave men died…there is no doubt that he hadn't cried He...
  • 1998 LOTT CRITICISM OF CLINTON -- The Rest of the Story

    several sources | 3-22-03 | dfu
    Charley Rangel, a senior member of Congress and, Lord help us, a committee chairman if the RATS ever get back into power, has made it clear that he "supports the troops" but not the president. The greatest anger and hatred for our president comes from Rangel's fellow members of the American-hating Black Caucus. Defenders of Rangel will cite that Trent Lott, our weak-kneed former Senate Leader, was critical of Bill Clinton when he was dropping missiles on Iraq in 1998. For those who forgot, the missiles were dropped on the eve of impeachment. Lott opposed the air assault on suspected...

    With the shooting down of a very qualified judge named Priscilla Owens, the party of the RATS had taken partisanship to a new level of low. How did we get here? The answer is very clear -- we got here because of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton, impreached former president. Like many of you, I used to have Democratic friends. We got along. We were able to have civil arguments. Clinton changed all that. I only have few left, and they really don't have my respect. Some of us saw it coming fairly early, but it really crystalized after the OKC...
