"[T]he reason she's a U.S. senator, the reason she's a candidate for president, the reason she may be a front-runner is her husband messed around."—Chris Matthews on Senator Hillary Clinton
Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa was Chris Matthews’ forced confession. His sins were that he dared to state the obvious and he dared to tell the truth.
Matthews is the ultra Liberal talk show pundit who normally lands on the correct side of Liberal issues but alas this time he got it terribly wrong. He told the truth.
There is really no accounting for Matthews’ sudden fit of veracity, Tourette syndrome temporary madness or perhaps early Alzheimers can’t tell, but whatever the malady that caused his superfluity of truthfulness Liberals are enraged at him.
Liberals are best known for nodding in mindless unison to any lie just as long as the lie begins or ends with the name George Bush.
Matthews is reported to have said that the only reason that Hillary Clinton is a U.S. senator, a candidate for president or even the front-runner for the Democrat nomination is that her husband the former president Bill Clinton is a philanderer. Matthews’s statement clearly intimating that Senator Clinton political good fortune is due to total unmerited sympathy not a result of any political acumen on her part is something intuitively known by all but apparently considered sacrilege to speak.
But we have recently seen the power of the sympathy vote! In New Hampshire where Hillary demonstrated the “I almost had a tear” speech, women rallied to her cause because apparently they thought they were supporting a sister in distress thus lifting Senator Clinton from a predicted dire two digit defeat in New Hampshire to a historical comeback victory over Senator Obama. Little did they know that Mrs. Clinton was following her scripted campaign agenda which called for her to show a more human side because the polls said that a softer side was a winning formula and did it ever work! Were women ever suckered?
So now National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority and National Women's Political Caucus have sent a joint letter of complaint to NBC News President Steve Capus regarding Matthews’ comments yet these hypocrites never ever defended a single woman that Bill Clinton abused. And believe me there were multiple opportunities for these so-called women’s rights organizations to do so. NOW, Feminist Majority or National Women’s Political Caucus could have defended any of the many women that were assaulted by Bill Clinton why didn't they?
According to JT Thompson of the Hillary project feminist have not been so quick to defend women’s rights when those rights were violated by Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Eileen Wellstone: a 19-year-old English woman who said Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near Oxford where the future President was a student in 1969. It was this rape that caused Clinton to be quietly expelled from Oxford and the loss of his Fulbright Scholarship.
In 1972, a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton while he was a law student at the college. No charges were filed, but retired campus policemen contacted by Capitol Hill Blue confirmed the incident
In 1974, a female student at the University of Arkansas complained that then-law school instructor Bill Clinton groped her and forced his hand inside her blouse. She complained to her faculty advisor who confronted Clinton, but Clinton claimed the student ''came on'' to him. The student left the school shortly after the incident. Reached at her home in Texas, the former student confirmed the incident.
Juanita Broaddrick: a gubernatorial campaign volunteer said Mr. Clinton raped her during a nursing-home-operators convention in Little Rock in April 1978.
From 1978-1980, during Clinton's first term as governor of Arkansas, state troopers assigned to protect the governor were aware of at least seven complaints from women who said Clinton forced, or attempted to force, himself on them sexually.
Gennifer Flowers: In 1992, Flowers claimed she had a 12 year affair with Bill Clinton. Although this was a consensual relationship, he lied to the American people on national television that he was not having an affair.
Flowers was smeared in the media after going public of the affair. "These are the people that literally went out to destroy my life and were very successful in many aspects," reported Flowers. "[Hillary] was the general who gave the directives to her troops to go out and search and destroy."
Sally Perdue: a former Miss Arkansas who said she had a four-month affair with him in 1983. After coming forward, she had her car window smashed, and shotgun shells left on the driver's seat.
Sandra Allen James: a former Washington, D.C., political fund-raiser who said Mr. Clinton invited her to his hotel room during a 1991 campaign trip, pinned her against the wall and put his hand under her dress.
Christy Zercher: an airline flight attendant on Mr. Clinton's 1992 campaign plane, who said Mr. Clinton exposed himself and grabbed her breasts and made explicit remarks about oral sex. A video shot on board the plane by ABC News shows an obviously inebriated Clinton with his hand between another young flight attendant's legs.
Carolyn Moffet: a legal secretary in Little Rock in 1979 said, "I was escorted there [Mr. Clinton’s hotel room] by a state trooper. When I went in, he was sitting on a couch, wearing only an undershirt. He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn't even do that for my boyfriend and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap.
Elizabeth Ward Gracen: a former Miss Arkansas and Miss America who won the crown in 1982, told friends she was forced by Clinton to have sex with him shortly after she won her state crown.
Elizabeth received threatening phone calls, and her belongings were ransacked while Elizabeth was on vacation in St. Martin by 3 men in suits (according to a witness). Her manager Vincent Vento said these intimidating phone callers said "You should really keep your mouth shut about Bill Clinton and go on with your life. You could be discredited. You could have an IRS investigation."
Paula Jones: in a hotel room in 1991, Jones claimed Bill Clinton dropped his pants, exposed himself, and asked for sexual favors from her. In 1994, she filed a lawsuit against Bill Clinton. The case was settled out of court, and Jones was awarded $850,000.
Kathleen Willey, a one-time White House aide, who accused him of groping her. During a November 1993 interview at the White House when, she testified under oath in federal court, Mr. Clinton was "very forceful" in the unwanted sexual advance -- kissing her on the mouth, touching her breasts and putting his hands under her dress.
After coming forward with her allegations, Kathleen Willey had the tires on her car mysteriously punctured with dozens of nails and her cat suddenly disappeared.
Monica Lewinksy – an intern who had an affair with President Clinton while in the oval office. Bill Clinton publicly denied under oath having a sexual relationship with Miss Lewinksy, but was later forced to admit that he did have an "inappropriate relationship", after tape recordings were released during a trial as evidence of the affair. Clinton’s perjury lead to an impeachment trial.
Linda Tripp -- close confidante to Monica Lewinksy was vindictively fired from government service In January 1998 the last day of the Clinton administration, for being a whistle blower.
Tripp gave surreptitiously recorded tapes to then-Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr in exchange for Immunity from prosecution. Tripp disclosed to Starr that she was aware of the relationship between Lewinsky and President Clinton, that Lewinsky had executed a false affidavit denying the relationship that was submitted to the federal court in Arkansas in the Jones v. Clinton lawsuit, and that Lewinsky had attempted to suborn Tripp's perjury in the Jones v. Clinton suit to conceal the Clinton-Lewinsky relationship as well as Tripp's knowledge of the Kathleen Willey incident from the federal court.
As Tripp explained, she was being solicited to commit a crime to conceal evidence in the Jones civil rights case.
Tripp also informed Starr of the existence of a navy blue dress that Lewinsky owned that was impregnated with Clinton's semen. During their friendship, Lewinsky had shown the dress to Tripp and said she intended to have it dry-cleaned; Tripp convinced her not to.
Kim Gandy, NOW's president, said last night that "Chris Matthews is a repeat offender when it comes to sexist attitudes toward women politicians. . . . I wasn't really looking for an apology. I was looking for a behavior change, and for him to treat female politicians the same way as male politicians."
Well if Chris Matthews is a repent offender Ms. Gandy, he’s not the only one. And where was NOW or any of the so-called feminist organizations when Bill Clinton was offending repeatedly? Hypocrites!
Finally I noticed that no one said that Matthews was lying only that his remarks were nasty.
It’s ironic that Hillary Clinton who at worst is complicit in several of Bill Clinton’s cover-ups of his abuse of women or she is at best an enabler of her husband’s wantonly criminal behavior is being defended by National Organization for Women, Feminist Majority and National Women's Political Caucus on behalf of women’s rights.
Rights that Mrs. Clinton herself violated every time she stood by her man against women that he had violated. Chris Matthews was right Hillary would never have gotten where she is if it wasn’t for her appearing to be a victim in Bill Clinton’s a long sorted sexual predatory career. A career where she more often than not was not a victim but Bonnie to his Clyde!
And you want to let this, back into the White house?
