Bill Clinton Taunts Obama as a “Wuss” If He Doesn’t Ignore Congress, Go to War in Syria


The boy just can’t help himself.

How else can you explain Bill Clinton taunting Obama, even though Hillary still needs his support, while associating his wife with the military intervention that she’s trying to escape.

Clinton, speaking with Sen. John McCain Tuesday night in a closed press event sponsored by the McCain Institute, contrasted Obama’s inaction in Syria to his own action in the 1999 NATO intervention in Kosovo, which included the bombing of the forces of Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic. Clinton said a president must look beyond public and congressional reluctance to military intervention for the sake of national security and to save lives.

“You just think how lame you’d be … suppose I had let a million people, two million people be refugees out of Kosovo, a couple hundred thousand people die, and they say, ‘You could have stopped this by dropping a few bombs. Why didn’t you do it?’ And I say, ‘because the House of Representatives voted 75 percent against it?’” Clinton said. “You look like a total wuss, and you would be.”

Bill Clinton is telling Obama to ignore Congress, which he would anyway, but as a matter of philosophy, he is urging some sort of alternate Constitution in which presidents can go to war without regard to what Congress thinks.

Sadly this is the Constitution we’re living under, but it’s not too comforting to future voters to know that 2016 would be Round 2 of Clinton Lawlessness. A basic question that should be asked of Hillary is whether she will go to war without talking to Congress the way Obama did.

Digging deeper, Clinton is patting himself on the back for invading Yugoslavia, a country where genocide was not taking place, while ignoring Rwanda where genocide was taking place.

Here’s Clinton saying it himself

Former U.S. president Bill Clinton admitted that if the U.S. had gone into Rwanda sooner following the start of the 1994 genocide, at least a third or roughly 300,000 lives could have been saved.

The Kosovo death toll was a tiny fraction of that. The intervention had nothing to do with human rights and everything to do with Muslim rights.

That’s why Obama made it clear that he similarly would not take action over Rwanda or Sudan. But he did go into Libya and wants to go into Syria.

“If you refuse to act and you cause a calamity, the one thing you cannot say when all the eggs have been broken is, ‘Oh my god, two years ago there was a poll that said 80 percent of you were against it.’ You look like a total fool,” Clinton said.

Actually that’s the one thing you can say. An elected official is supposed to follow the will of the people. It’s amazing that Clinton is openly talking about his contempt for that even while he wants to plant his wife in the Oval Office.

“Some people say, ‘See what a mess it is. Stay out.’ I think that’s a bad mistake. I agree with you about this,” Clinton told McCain. “Sometimes it’s just best to get caught trying, as long as you don’t overcommit.”

“Get caught trying.” That’s the story of his life.

    Pretty funny, in a warped historical sort of a way.

    A page right out of the Billy Jeff playbook. Blow something up as a distraction. As I recall, that is what the old Slickster did when Monica Lew was jerking on his Anthony Weiner………….

    • objectivefactsmatter

      Maybe he realizes that his presidency is pulling the whole party down. Maybe he doesn’t realize how he was viewed when he pulled this BS.

    • HiPlainsDrifter

      Weiner jokes are soo old…got nothing new, broke back fake cowboi?

  • objectivefactsmatter

    “Clinton said a president must look beyond public and congressional reluctance to military intervention for the sake of national security and to save lives.”

    Clinton said a radical Democrat president must look beyond public and congressional reluctance to military intervention for the sake of jihad if the cover story is good enough.

    There will never be clearer proof that Bill Clinton is (a) 100% brain dead, or (b) 100% on the Saudi payroll. We all know the Saudis are financing the Al Qaida backed rebels against Assad, and we all know the Saudis want to jab a stick in the eye of Iran. But what’s in it for the United States? More dead Americans? More maimed and permanently wounded Americans that we will have to take care of for the rest of their lives? More billions (or trillions) of dollars poured into the bottomless pits of the middle east, when we desperately need that money to reenergize and rebuild America at home? The Saudis warned us in 1972 that they intended to use oil as a political weapon. Who would have imagined that they would be able to use oil money to buy U.S. presidents?

    If we don’t at the very least, regain control of Congress in 2014, there very well won’t be a Constitution in 2016 to be concerned with.

    Clinton’s still too stupid to realize he helped the wrong side in Kosovo. He should have been bombing the muslims, not the Serbs.

    “The Kosovo death toll was a tiny fraction of that. The intervention had nothing to do with human rights and everything to do with Muslim rights.”
    Gotta love Danny’s Freudian slip, wherein he dismisses the rights of Muslim Kosovans to keep from being slaughtered en masse as a special set aside, mere “Muslim rights.” Sorta like Affirmative Action for Muslims. Heh.
    Aside for Danny’s anti-Muslim bigotry, he’s even got the analysis wrong.

    Clinton didn’t give a rat’s hind quarters about “Muslims” per se, and in the West there was no “save the Muslims!” campaign. Clinton was dragged, pushed and cajoled into intervening in Kosovo by NATO countries worried about the war and refugees spilling over their borders and creating a crisis for them. The images of Europeans being slaughtered and cadaverous-looking men in prison camps helped a lot too. (It remains a moral indictment of the Euros that they had allowed themselves to become so weak and so reliant on Uncle Sam that they couldn’t put down a tin pot dictator a two hour flight from Rome, on their own.)
    To his credit, Billy Boy was reluctant to get into a war, but then quickly got in front of that parade when it seemed to turn out nicely.

      Given that the Albanians were busily ethnically and religiously cleansing Kosovo of non-muslims……..oh, wait, it’s okay for muslims to do that, but not for anybody else.

    • Drakken

      Your understanding of the Balkan conflict really says it all, now we have Islamic run enterprises in Bosnia, Kosovo,Macedonia and Albania where all they do is smuggle drugs, guns, prostitution rings and jihadist into Europe, and white slaves back into muslim countries. We should have let the Serbs deal with the muslim problem in their midst and we would not have the problems we have now in that region. All we have done is to drive the Serbs into the arms of the Russians and when everybody’s eyes are elsewhere, the Serbs with Russia’s help will take back their lost territories.
      Now we have your hero Obummer trying to get us into Syria to help who exactly?

  • tagalog

    Yep, great idea; follow Bill Clinton’s advice on how to be the President of the United States.

    You can almost hear Bill Clinton talking to Obama, “Hey look. Just do whatever the Saudis want and they’ll make sure the Obama charitable organizations are funded with hundreds of millions of dollars for the rest of your life, and you’ll get credit for stopping a fight. You might even win another Nobel Peace Prize. You can’t lose. Don’t be a chump. Just do it!” Does the best interest of the American people have anything to do with Obama’s thinking on this matter? If Obama says yes to this folly, we will know that the answer to that question is “no”.

    The Syrian Rebels have dedicated themselves to supporting Al Qaeda in their War against America. Why are we helping them?

  • quillerm

    Our troops are overextended and their benefits are being cut to pay for Obamacare. Liberals hate our military and insult them at every opportunity. If they go to Syria they will be killed by Rebels and the Government. If Obama’s goal is to destroy our military and our Nation, he is succeeding.
