"Yet another time when the ClintonsDavid Geffen comments were spoken in an interview with Maureen Dowd regarding the Presidential pardon that Bill Clinton gave Marc Rich oil-profiteer and expatriate who left the country rather than pay taxes or face justice.
were unwilling to stand for the things that they genuinely believe in. Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling."--David Geffen, one time friend and confidante of the Clintons
Apparently Geffen saw this as a betrayal of Liberalism because Clinton pardoned Rich a corporate crony of the President while failing to pardon an ideologically pure American Indian activist Leonard Peltier, who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents. Geffen felt betrayed, as well, he must have felt lied to.
Why do the Clinton’s feel compelled to lie and deceive? In my opinion it is because they think that they are smarter than voting America.
For instance, recently on the campaign trail for Hillary, Bill lied when he said that he opposed the war in Iraq from the [beginning]start. And there was absolutely no logical reason for it. No one was pressuring him because of his past support for President Bush’s decision to go to war with Iraq. Democrats are all forgiving and short on memory when it comes to their first family of dynasty.
Maybe he thought that he was helping Hillary deflect criticisms that she supported the decision to go to war with Iraq, which wasn’t necessary at this time because no one’s talking about the war right now because the surge is working and positive news is coming out of Iraq. Even Congressman “we can’t win” John Murtha reported the surge is working after a visit there!
Even the most intellectually challenged Democrat knows that for right now the word is mum on Iraq until more bad news can dominate the discussion so what’s up with Bill?
Bill Clinton has always been a stranger to the truth, but is it possible that he's never heard of Google?Maybe Bill knows that nothing that he or Hillary says or does will have any negative consequences for them from the Democrat faithful. Nothing “Clinton” will come under close scrutiny from those that idolize the husband and wife Politicalstars.
How else to explain his ridiculous claim - while campaigning for Hillary out in Iowa - that he "opposed [the] Iraq [war] from the beginning"? –New York Post
Interestingly enough, that is becoming less true since Democrats realize that they can not win simply using the polarizing politics of the past. Democrats know that if they don’t attract Independents and some fringe Conservatives they do not have the numbers to win the Presidency out right.
Bill Clinton won the Presidency in 1992 with only 43% of the popular vote and was reelected in 1996 with only 49.2% of the popular vote compared to the numbers 47.9% in 2000 and 50.7% in 2004 for George W. Bush.
So why this most blatant and obvious lie that is so easily discernable that even the most neophyte of politicos is able to dispatch it with a single google query?
There really is no reason other than, “Because he could!” But because he did that does bring up this point.
In a major victory for the White House, the Senate early Friday voted 77-23 to authorize President Bush to attack Iraq if Saddam Hussein refuses to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions.Though it was the President Bill Clinton that started the showdown with Iraq and it was Democrats as well as Republicans that voted to give President Bush authority to go to war with Iraq(making it a legal war). In addition, as you know it was Democrats as well as Republicans who voted repeatedly to fund the war, Democrats will not be able to claim any responsibility for a win in Iraq because of their conspiratorial efforts to cause the United States to lose in Iraq with all the negative statements such as the former President and Democrats have made.
Hours earlier, the House approved an identical resolution, 296-133.—CNN.com/inside politics
Or maybe former President Clinton thought that there has been so many Democrat lies told on President Bush and the war that he might as well pile on too!
Only thing is this lie was so blatant and obvious that it was an insult to everyone’s intelligence, Democrats notwithstanding!
Tim Russert obviously still smarting from the Clinton campaign rebuke on his handling of the Democrat Debate trended very lightly on the former President’s Lie about Iraq (see below:
