NOW Bill's image is tarnished?!

This just floors me. Bill Clinton's involvement with his wife's presidential campaign is what has tarnished his image? Now people don't like him? Oh, jeez.

Bill Clinton's reentry into the political arena appears to have come at some cost to his legacy. New polling now suggests that Clinton's involvement in the Democratic nomination battle between his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Barack Obama, has significantly tarnished the former president's image.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Thursday found that more Americans view Bill Clinton negatively than positively, 45 to 42 percent. It marked the first time since January 2002 that a plurality of Americans disapproved of the former president. One month earlier, The Gallup Poll found that nearly as many Americans had an unfavorable as favorable view of Bill Clinton--for the first time in nearly five years.

Presidential historians said Clinton's return to partisan politics made it likely that public perception of the former president would suffer.


It's like 'ole Slick Willie was a freakin' saint before he got involved with that devil woman's campaign.

I won't even go into the Monica thing (whoops, think I just did!). How about the illegal campaign contributions from China, compromising U.S. security? How about the ignoring of all threats to our national security over and over and over again, including turning down Osama bin Laden's head on a silver platter? How about selling presidential pardons, plots in Arlington National Cemetery, and stays in the Lincoln Bedroom? How about trashing the White House when he left, causing thousands of dollars of damage? How about stealing everything that wasn't nailed down before leaving, namely furniture? How about the alleged drug smuggling on Arkansas? How about the political favors for campaign contributors? How about Sandy Berger? How about using the IRS to harass and intimidate political enemies? How about the many sex scandals, including rape and sexual harassment?

And that's just the tip of the iceberg! There isn't room on this blog to list the many scandals, lies, obstructions of justice, and treasonous activities that Bill Clinton took part in as President.

All of this apparently doesn't matter, I guess. Everyone loved him, until he got involved with that gosh-darned Hillary woman's presidential campaign. And now, now, people don't like him.

Good grief.

This is hilarious. The democrats who have defended the Clintons for all these years now are just now finding out about them? Suuuuure. They've always known the Clintons were EVERYTHING the conservatives said about them, but they didn't care because it served their political agenda. Now that they have another candidate they're excited about, they're just "discovering" their HUGE integrity gaps. Yeah, riiiiiight.

Democrats are so full of it.

ke_future:

so patrick, you are receiving calls from foreign terrorists?

and did you even read the story you linked to? the GAO said there was damage, but that they couldn't detail it because the Bush White House, which just wanted to move on, hadn't given them the records. there was at least $20k in damage.

and what don't you get about people like marc rich donating thousands of dollars and then getting a pardon? and nice how you totally ignore the illegal foreign campaign contributions and the purgery and all the rest.

and given some of the comments from the jurors after the trial, and actually looking at the testemony, i'm not convinced that libby lied. and bush didn't pardon libby, he commuted the sentence. unlike sandy burger who confessed to doing worse, but only got a slap on the wrist.

Geminichuck:

Main stream America is finally beginning to see Bill Clinton for what he really is: A first class con artist - pure and simple. Many will refuse to believe it - that's because they are STILL being conned. In fact most Democrat politicians are con artists (witness ex-Gov Spitzer, Hillary, Barrack) - just that Bill was the smoothest of them all - brilliant mind, of course, but a con man through and through.

I have to admit, though, Barrack is really giving Bill a run for the money in the con-man area - this is 1992 all over again with the media and common folk falling all over themselves swooning over Obama as they did with Billy. They would make P T Barnum proud.

Sen. Obama will be the Democratic nominee.
It is my personal belief that what really pissed off Republicans is that former President Clinton out did them.
The majority of Dems..in States and Delegates have rejected him and his wife in our Primaries in a manner not seen by the general public in 1992 and 1996.
Obama will be the Democratic Party nominee.
If Republican Conservatives and the evangelical Christians can rally behind McCain fine.
However, his opponent will not be the Clintons.

Sen Obama flew into CT to support Joe Lieberman in Senate race against the anti-war candidate Ned Lamont.
http://www.nytimes.com/2006/04/02/nyregion/02lieberman.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

I no longer trust Sen Obama or his message.

Here are more reasons I dont trust Obama-

- His choice of firm to manage his campaign-firm that specializes in helping black candidates use race baiting to win elections:
Sen Obama intended from day 1 to divide the country, have sympathetic whites & angry blacks vote for him. If he becomes president & anyone tries to challenge him on anything- that person will be labeled a rascist.

You also touched on one of the major problems with the Clinton administration: the full-fledged attack on privacy rights.

1. The 900 illegally acquired FBI files on political enemies.
2. Not just using the IRS to go after political enemies, but using the IRS to gather information about enemies.
3. The attempt to build a database of all airline travel.
4. The proposal to build a database of all the credit card and check transactions in the US.
5. Illegally building a database of gun owners from purchase records - against the limits imposed by Congress.


This is the real issue for America (not just liberals): President Clinton broke the law, but he was excused because the economy was doing well. Once the economy started to slide toward the end of his administration, his approval numbers started to go down, and the public became less likely to excuse his moral, ethical, and legal short-comings.

Today, the American people feel that they somehow "need" the Clintons back in office. The public knows that these people are basically gangsters, but they will excuse any bad behavior by the Clintons as long as the economy gets fixed or the public gets free health care. People that support the alternatives are willing to consider that electing gangsters who have a long track record of lying, cheating, stealing, taking bribes, and shaking-down innocent people is probably not a good idea. Good for them. Unfortunately, many, if not most, Americans don't have the necessary moral, ethical, and legal standards to say, "No" to the Clintons.

We get the government that we deserve.

Most regular commenters on this site know exactly what they are getting with the Clintons.

The overriding concern is that we are just beginning to peel the Obama onion (because his cheerleaders in the MSM, predictably, refuse to do it unless enormous pressure is brought to bear).

kay:

I find it offensive that BIll CLINTON stated that Blacks are naturally drawn to Obama. I guess you could say Bill is naturally drawn to interns and other women. These people are almost mafia and feel they have entitlement...like stopping the counting of votes in Texas because she didn't like the way the voting turned out.

Now let me ask anyone this ... If we were electing someone who was say, Catholic, what do you think the Clinton's would do???? Bring up the fact that the Catholic Church has paid millions of dollars because their priest molested young boys? These molested men still have problems to this day. The fact that Obama has a "firey" Pastor (and I say keep religion out of Politic) this pastors words will fade away and has nothing to do with Obama, but molestation doesn't go away....

BTW Bill, I am a white female and will vote for OBAMA as are my friends, families and acquantinces....because we believe that the CLINTONS themselves, delved into Obama's religion to take the heat off themselves...and FOX NEWS FOR ONE CONTINUES, AND CONTINUES TO REPEAT IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. SO WHAT... FREEDOM OF SPEECH RING A WORD? WHAT IF THE CLINTONS WERE RUNNING AGAINST A HISPANIC MAN OR WOMAN.....IT WOULD STILL BE THE SAME STORY..THE BEHIND THE SCENCES SCENARIO TO SEE HOW FAST THEY COULD THROW THSI PERSON UNDER THE BUS, OR ANY OTHER PERSON OF CULTURAL DECENT...BECAUSE THEY,, THE CLINTONS, FEEL THEY ARE ENTITLED.....THUS REMOVING ALL THEY COULD FROM THE WHITE HOUSE....SAD NATION WHEN PEOPLE LISTEN TO FOX NEWS ....

Kay:

Yes I did (Ha) I was watching Hannity and got a little riled and he does have the freedom of speech, but doesn't see that others have freedom of speech?

So Wright is a firey pastor; WHATEVER, BUT KARL ROVE WAS ALL OVER IT. is everyone that attends church align with their pastor or priest or whoever?

I still think the Clintons' are behind this with Geraldine and Bill making race comments which fires people up and then they say they don't? And Bill continued that today with his remark that Blacks are naturally drawn to Obama? Does he not get it? The words coming from Wright should not be attached to Obama...these "words" didn't come from Obama's mouth....Wright was exercising his freedom of speech and freedom of religion in HIS church.

Votes that go against Obama because of his church affiliation is a product of the media....no one has brought up the YEARS of secretwhat the Clinton's have done....I hope that the lawsuit they have to testify in is televised...wouldn't it be great to see Hillary and Bill put their hand on a Bible and swear to tell the truth and nothing but...or will they get amnesia.....

I'm more incensed by the media than anything else...I don't think Walter Cronkite would stoop this low. I'm still voting and donating to Obama's campaign. He doesn't deserve to be smeared to take the heat off the Clintons....they are more perverse than the other two candidates.....

Bill Clinton has been excep... (Below threshold)

Bill Clinton has been exceptionally rusty and awkward with his involvement with his wife's campaign. Before this, Clinton like Reagan, both had enough of a large pool of admirers that neither could completely destroy themselves in that public eye no matter how bad some of their decisions while in office were. Because of this the public continued to forgive every Clinton and Reagan scandal. Others like Richard Nixon were judged far more harsely because most of the public never really like this guy to begin with. However the 2008 Bill Clinton has been exceptionally inept and of little real help to his wife this year. When the focus turns back to McCain for the general election, either he or his mother will more likely than not give the voters a few choice goofy moments that will give more than few voters cause for concern. However, at this point McCain is still the odds on favorite to to elected in my view.

I have to give you the credit for clever propaganda using moral equivalency. Just note one major difference for you: Reagan was trying to fight the communists to end the cold war and jump start the economy after the Carter malaise. Clinton was squandering the peace dividents for his own sexual exploration in office. Anyway, you are clever in trying to carry the water for the known corrupt Clinton in any case. Must give you the credit.

Shannon, Michigan:

The reference Bill Clinton made at SC drawing a comparison to Jesse Jackson's unsuccessful campaign after a successful state win wasn't so much a "race" card from the standpoint of suggesting the black people voted for Obama because he was black - I felt the remark carried a sub-text to say -- "hey - nice try, black guy, but if you really think this fairy tale is going national, you're nuts." From the standpoint that Bill and Hillary Clinton support black people only when they are down, but if they want to compete at the "white " level, it is a different story.

So while I agree that his attitude carries racial undertones, I don't necessarily think he was consciously stating SC is a black voting state.

stan25 Author Profile Page:

The Clintons are also un-indicted murderers. There have been several people who have died under suspicious circumstances. Namely Vince Foster and Ron Brown. Seems kind of strange that one is found in a Washington DC park without laying in a pool of blood and the other dies in a crash of a perfectly sound military airplane. Don't know how many people were killed, because they crossed the Clintons and regretted it and we will probably not know. We all know that the Hillbillies are not going to speak out about where the bodies are buried.
