Bill Clinton Urges Americans to be like the Ukrainians

Has Bill really thought this analogy through? Ukraine was technically a case of a legislature tossing out a president after popular protests.

If America worked that way, Obama would have been out in 2010.

It’s great to see that Bill Clinton is resorting to proposing extralegal and non-democratic evictions of politicians at a campaign rally for a party that already operates undemocratically and extra-legally.

Clinton focuses a lot on the idea of privatizing the White House and making off with the paintings.

That’s interesting considering what happened when the Clintons had to temporarily leave the White House.

President Clinton and his wife started shipping White House furniture to the Clintons’ newly purchased home in New York more than a year ago, despite questions at the time by the White House chief usher about whether they were entitled to remove the items.

This week, the Clintons returned the four items to the White House, along with other furnishings, after questions were raised about whether they actually belonged to the Clintons. All the furnishings had been designated official White House property by the Park Service in 1993.

Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.) asked the General Accounting Office last June to look into allegations that Clinton staffers had ripped phone cords from walls, left obscene voicemail messages, defaced bathrooms and vandalized computer keyboards by removing the ”W” keys when they left the White House. A number of items, including a 12-inch presidential seal and several antique doorknobs, were assumed stolen.

”The Clinton administration treated the White House worse than college freshmen checking out of their dorm rooms,” Barr said Tuesday. ”They disgraced not just themselves but the institution and the office of the presidency as well.”

The GAO concluded that ”damage, theft, vandalism, and pranks did occur in the White House during the 2001 presidential transition.” The report stated that some incidents, such as removing keyboard keys, placing glue on desk drawers and leaving obscene voicemail messages ”clearly were intentional,” and intentional damage would constitute a criminal act under federal law.

Democratic lawmakers characterized the investigation as a witch hunt and a waste of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.

Rep. Anthony D. Weiner (D-N.Y.). “The Bush administration owes them a long-overdue apology.”

Uh yes. Do Clinton and his gang really want a Ukrainian uprising here?

    Our ex-Pres, aka Slick Willy, could ramble a word salad at the podium and most of the press would laud it as the wisdom of the ages. And of course Billy Boy still would collect his customary, outrageous fee for the performance.

    It’s very strange, because except for Clinton’s misuse of the word “privatize,” his remarks sound like a call to take back the country from the Democratic Left…

    And Bill Clinton should act more like an American.

    What’s his ‘is’ is his… assault on American English… and adult psyches everywhere.

    This is the player who’s the exemplar of onanism as fulfillment.

    If only Monica had realized his short comings.

    As for my fellow Americans… twice was too much.

    ‘Pulp rhetoric’ — he has the gift of grift…

    Daniel, one salient characteristic of minds like Clinton’s is that they have NO sense of irony—a concept we were all taught about as High School Freshman in English class.

    I say he goes in a dark hole without sunlight until he coughs up the White House surveillance tapes from the night Vince Foster mysteriously teleported himself to Fort Marcy Park without anyone seeing it.

    Lost ‘em? Too bad, buddy; you get to rot.

    It seems curious that a former U.S. President would like the idea of a popular uprising against the government with an eye to replacing it with something else.

    But what can you expect from a political party that likes “fundamental change” of the type that enmeshes us in unworkable government solutions for problems that can be fixed by efficient working of the free market, and declining U.S. influence in a world that sorely needs a popular and stable government to look to?

    After having read a few seminal works on the Second Amendment, its philosophical underpinnings and the ongoing need for it, I am even more in favor of a Million Armed Man March into gun-controlled D.C., just to show them that some of us Americans are not intimidated by their vision of an America of disarmed slaves to government.
