Clinton Claptrap


Clinton - still in search of a legacy, and well, damn it, if you're not going to give him one, he'll write it up for you.

VIA MSNBC:

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Former president Bill Clinton called Congress’ impeachment of him an “egregious” abuse of the Constitution and challenged those who say history will judge him poorly because of his White House tryst with Monica Lewinsky.

Speaking at an academic conference examining his presidency here Thursday, Clinton challenged historian Douglas Brinkley’s comments in a newspaper interview that Clinton would be deemed a great president were it not for his impeachment.

“I completely disagree with that,” Clinton said in his speech at Hofstra University. “You can agree with that statement, but only if you think impeachment was justified. Otherwise, it was an egregious abuse of the Constitution and law and history of our country.”

Clinton was acquitted by the Senate of perjury and obstruction of justice at his 1999 impeachment trial, which he argued was not about what he called his “misconduct.”

“Now if you want to hold it against me that I did something wrong, that’s a fair deal,” he said. “If you do that, then you have a whole lot of other questions, which is how many other presidents do you have to downgrade and what are you going to do with all those Republican congressmen, you know, that had problems?”

Achievements highlighted

Clinton touted what he called the achievements of his eight-year presidency, from Middle East peace initiatives to turning around the U.S. economy.

His remarks were cheered loudly by the audience.



Clinton said his administration’s failures included its slowness to act to halt the genocide in Rwanda and the decision to allow federal agents to raid a cult leader’s compound in Waco, Texas. Nearly 80 cult followers died in a fire during the 1993 confrontation.




“We should have waited them out,” he said.


The presidential conference is the 11th to be held at Hofstra; the first in 1982 examined the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.



No actually Bill, it wasn't the "Republican Congressmen" that had problems. It was you. But then as a patholigical liar, you wouldn't be able to see that - you never have.

Since you've been looking for your 'legacy', maybe this will help you out.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…
