Back To The Future

You know, probably 80% of the President's job is to convince the American people he knows what he's doing and will safely lead us where we need to go. I was reminded of that tonight. I miss Bill.

I sure as hell don't miss him!!!!

9/11 never would have happened had he done his job effectively while he was president!

We wouldn't have two more liberal Supreme Court justices had he never been president!

I almost want to wag my finger in his face to scold him!

The sorry arrogant bastard!

I believe a President today is just the last guy to point A finger at, so many people make the decisions for them.They just can't be experts in all the areas they have to be in "control" of.


Bill was a likeable guy.In the right light he kinda looks like a younger Nixon.One liked to cover up.The other liked the cover down!

Bill Clinton made the case for a Democratic president; however, he does not like Obama. Obama must make win the Hillary Clinton working class voters over and the Greek Temple is not the proper setting for this to happen.

Obama tried to convince us that Rev. Wright was not all bad because his chuch did some good work among people on the south side of Chicago. Obama cannot explain his association with William Ayers during the time he served on a board with him.

Fox News reported Bill Clinton said Obama's instints are like a Chicago thug.

The Clintons kept the Party together at the convention because it has been their party for 15 years. Obama supporters would have torn up the place had Obama not won!

Bill Clinton doesn't think Obama can win and Hillary will have another chance four years from now.

Everyone get ready for Obama to rise up in the Greek Temple tonight and give another no substance speech.

The change he is talking about will not be the change our country needs.

A lot of Democrats are voting country first and Party last in November.

McCain has the judgement and character to be the leader of the free world. He would never stay in a church that preached hatred of our country.

Political instincts of a Chicago thug is how Obama is running his campaign. What does that say about his character and how he will run the country? He learned from Daily and the most corrupt politicans and worshiped with Rev. Wright.

Tonight he will deliver a socialist message to encourage voters to vote to give themselves money by his proposed tax cuts to workiing families.

Ben Franklin said when that happens it will be the end of our Republic.

Hey 9:33...You obviously:
1)don't have any idea what a liar is (ref. the last 8 years),
2) Have been living undera rock on Mars for the last 8 years, or
3) Are part of the lying group of alledged human beings who have been in charge for the last 8 years

Think the Clinton haters are most irritated by the simple fact he was so effective, centrist, so on and so on. And continues to be.

The second part that drives them nuts is the horrible comparison with Bush, so corrupt (not just his personal life), so ineffective, so un-conservative.

They are reduced to name-callilng.

I await the day, that a truely independent candidate, not tied to the libral or conservative agenda will be as effective as Clinton. Maybe something will get done.

I am not holding my breath. Certianly not with our current two puppets.

Barry is absolutely correct except for one little consideration- that other 20% is very important.

How he really could keep a high sense of confidence is very interesting considering:

Mr. bin Laden used to live in Sudan. He was expelled from Saudi Arabia in 1991, then he went to Sudan. And we'd been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again - 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. So I pleaded with the Saudis to take him, 'cause they could have. But they thought it was a hot potato and they didn't and that's how he wound up in Afghanistan." -Bill Clinton

"President Bill Clinton last night proposed the biggest tax increase in American history as part of what he claimed is a balanced $493 billion deficit reduction package. Stripped of rhetoric, however, the package is neither balanced nor would it generate the level of budget savings Clinton implied.

Most disappointing, not one penny of the proposed deficit savings comes from net reductions in the most rapidly growing portion of the budget -- domestic spending. Indeed, the Clinton proposal calls for domestic spending programs to receive a net increase of $10 billion over the next four years."

"Clinton's package relies almost completely on tax increases. New taxes and increases in existing taxes account for 72 percent of the total package, a net increase of $243 billion over the next four years. Projected defense cuts generate 22 percent of the savings, $75.5 billion over four years. Assumed reductions in federal interest payments, meanwhile, are projected to equal about $30 billion, or 9 percent of the total. (The percentages total 103 percent due to the fact that higher domestic spending lowers the aggregate level of deficit reduction by 3 percent.)"

"Incentives to work, save, and invest will be further diminished by proposals to impose a 2.9 percent Medicare tax on incomes above $135,000 and to increase the corporate tax rate from 34 percent to 36 percent. The middle class would be particularly hard hit by a proposed tax on the heat content of energy sources. This tax, estimated to raise more than $71 billion over the next five years, will add 7.5 cents to the cost of a gallon of gasoline, boost home heating oil prices by 8.25 cents per gallon, and increase the average consumer's electric bill by $27 per year. The $71 billion cost to consumers does not count, moreover, the unavoidable increase in the price of every good and service produced in the American economy."

Yeah, old Bill made you feel good and that's good, we payed well and continue to pay for the privilege.

If he had been in office on 911 he would have fired a couple of cruise missiles at a tent in Afghanistan after a warning and at about 3 am to further diminish casualties, encourage us to not blame our Muslim neighbors, blamed it all on Reagan and called the situation good. Then he would sit down for a decent cigar and a BJ in the oval office.

But, we'd FEEL good- that's what matters right?

Clinton made me feel so good because he was even nice to our avowed enemies-


"Where Bush insisted, from the outset, that the Trade Center attack that took place on his watch was a declaration of war by foreign terrorists against the United States, Clinton treated the attack as a criminal justice situation not unlike the subsequent bombing of the Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City. But while in Oklahoma, he connected emotionally with the victims, he had nothing to do with them in 1993.

His failure to mobilize America to confront foreign terror after the 1993 attack had dire consequences and led directly to the 2001 disaster. Two years after the 1993 attack, Sudan, sick of sheltering Bin Laden, offered to turn him over to the United States for prosecution. But, without the president breathing down their neck, investigators had not yet discovered that Bin Laden was behind the 1993 attack. Claiming that we lacked evidence to proceed, the US refused Sudan's offer and suggested they turn him over to the Saudis instead. In doing so, the US was disingenuous. We knew full well that the Saudi Arabian kingdom could not afford politically to prosecute their home-grown terrorist.

Clinton was removed, uninvolved, and distant where the war on terror was concerned. CIA director Woolsey now reveals that he never had a private personal meeting with Clinton during the first two years of his tenure as head of the CIA - exactly the key period in investigating the 1993 attack."

8:25 Hello? if Bush was ineffective, he wouldn't bother anyone. What drives you crazy is the fact he IS effective at getting what he wants.

Listening to (reading) people talking (writing) about politics just annoys the **** out of me. So many people who just can't think on their own.

And I love how everyone thinks the President is all powerful. Clinton was responsible for the prosperity of the 90's, etc.; Bush is responsible for every ill extant in this world. Reality check - Clinton was good enough to get out of the way of a resurgent economy (it's called the business cycle, people!); Bush IS responsible for Iraq, but the economy is correcting for all of the overindulgence post 9/11. We were headed to a recession then, and we just delayed it. At some point it the piper must be paid.

Also, maybe Clinton leaned more to the center because Congress was Republican? yeah, that could be why.

So don't worry, McCain won't get what he wants, even if the Dems leave those two idiots (Pelosi and Reid) in charge.

"Clinton was a one-thing-at-a-time president. Capable of intense focus on the issue du jour, he neglected all back burner concerns. And terror was always on the back burner.

Throughout the first part of his second term, Clinton was immobilized by impeachment. Battling desperately to save his presidency, he simply had neither the time nor the mental energy to immerse himself in a war against terror. Blame him for the perjury that caused impeachment. Blame the GOP for pursuing him. Blame whoever you want, but we were without a president from January, 1998 until April, 1999.

Thereafter, his administration was almost wholly devoted to electing Hillary to the Senate and, to a lesser extent, to making Gore president. Once again, terrorism was not the priority."- Clinton advisor and later campaign manager Dick Morris whom George Stephanopoulos has said that, "Over the course of the first nine months of 1995, no single person had more power over the president.'

WASHINGTON –– "The Supreme Court ordered former President Clinton disbarred from practicing law before the high court on Monday and gave him 40 days to contest the order.

The court did not explain its reasons, but Supreme Court disbarment often follows disbarment in lower courts.

In April, Clinton's Arkansas law license was suspended for five years and he paid a $25,000 fine. The original disbarment lawsuit was brought by a committee of the Arkansas Supreme Court." AP

Comedians and talk show hosts miss Bill as well. He remains our greatest mortification in American history, but it looks like we have another in the wings with Obama. It isn't often you get to hear an impeached president speak at a convention. The democrats always shoot so high.

What will the libs do when things really turn around and start going REAL well in Iraq?
They'll step in with some attention getting grandiose plan that costs a gazillion dollars. Piss and moan the whole time that it wouldn't be necessary if Bush hadn't screwed everything up in the first place. Try to put their stamp on things they didn't work for and didn't have the guts to stick with anyway, while causing a bunch of problems that anyone with half a brain could have foressen and then walk away.
Oh, yeah pretty much the way they handle everything.

Little bill set the USA back about 20 years! Come on people he had sex with a intern in the whitehouse!! And u barry miss him? Why? The best ever? please....

No wonder lawyers have a lower rating the those...

Anonymous said...

Clinton had sex with an intern and his wife still accepts him. Edwards also has an affair and his wife stands by him.

McCain had an affair after his wife was badly injured in a car wreck and then filed for divorce from the woman who stood by him while he was a POW. He then got a marriage license for the beer heiress BEFORE his divorce was final.

Who has character and morals? Maybe none of these guys but certainly NOT McCain!

I wish there was a way to go back and watch the progression of insults Democrats have used to describe Bush. "Idiot," "dunce," and "buffoon" are some of the kinder ones. Yet he kept defeating Democrats at every turn. Imagine the frustration level in the DNC, among the "superior" elite class (which all Liberals automatically assume they belong to.)

Their judgments and opinions on Bill Clinton are just as flawed. Was the country in better shape after he left office than when he took over? Or did we have eight years of partying while serious issues like terrorism were ignored?

Anonymous said...

Wordkyle, untl we all quit basing our opinions on a President on personal morals rather than leadership, we are missing the point. If my doctor, or car mechanic, etc. is skilled at what they do, I could care less about their sexual habits. It's none of my business.

I despised Clinton's morals and still do, but the guy could lead.

Bush dictates, and maybe if he got more sex, he'd learn to lead.

:-)

wordkyle said...

What makes you think I was speaking of "personal morals?" I'm talking more about your mechanic being out behind the garage smoking instead of fixing your car.

In no instance did Clinton show leadership. He tried to implement socialized medicine, and got beat back. He lost control of Congress. He ignored terrorism. He compromised his political position after Republicans took over Congress. And, oh yes, he got caught doing something in the workplace for which a McDonald's employee would be fired.

On the other hand, he did contribute to the coarsening of political discourse by Liberals -- your comment about Bush getting more sex reflects that. Liberal Democrats now accept as normal personal behavior in their party that a generation ago would have had them booted out.

Clinton's only accomplishment was managing to stay in office while the dot-com boom hit, and leaving office shortly before the bubble burst.

Republicans as individuals don't show any better personal behavior than Democrats; however, they are held to a higher standard. They at least aspire to better behavior.

Democrats revel in their immorality, and idolize their "leaders" like Bill Clinton who get away with it.

Wordkyle, even you know your last sentence in your 7:37 post is wrong. ALL Democrats revel in their immorality?

And all Democrats do NOT idolize Bill Clinton. I certainly don't and I am a lifetime Democrat.

We are ALL held to a higher standard. It is not reserved for Republicans only.

And they "aspire" to better behavior?

What a joke.

840 - The last Democrat who was drummed out of the party for his behavior was Joe Lieberman for supporting the Iraq war.

Bill Clinton spoke at the Democrat National Convention.

There's your Democrat standard in a nutshell.
