Bill Clinton touched me today.

Last edited Fri Jun 1, 2012, 11:56 PM - Edit history (2)

His left hand hugged my right hand just after I took this. It was cool. The end.

28. back when he was governor and running for president

He was jogging with a crowd of supporters to an event across from the White House. i took my then-10 year-old son to see him. After he gave a few short remarks, Clinton, in pink jogging shorts, came down the rope line and grasped both my hand and my sons hand all at once in his big soft hands. We'll both never forget that moment.

47. Most candidates for presidential office DO have hands as soft as a baby's butt

It is kind of creepy to feel.

Two exceptions? Jimmy Carter and Al Gore.

Those men have held a hoe. Or a shovel. Or a hammer in their life.

The right STILL hates him with the white-hot heat of a thousand suns. So he's just smearing "Bill Clinton" onto Mitt Romney like frosting on a cake.

40. the part about how Bain does good work buying up failing companies? or the other part, about

 

buying up successful companies, loading them with debt, gutting them and axing the employees, in order to temporary boost their stock and pay itself big time. And then moving on to the next victim, leaving the remaining shreds of a company to go bankrupt at the government's expense?

Because I don't remember reading that second part. And I did read the whole quote. Several times.

Bill recorded a special video for it, talking about how great the company was at sustainability and on environmental issues.

FOX will say there were 7 people.

Speakers were: Mike Tate, Mahlon Mitchell, John Erpenbach, Lena Taylor, Barrett, Clinton, and a local lady getting screwed by Walker losing BadgerCare.

24. Mitt Romney thanks Bill Clinton for Bain praise

“I think Bain Capital has a good and solid record. I was happy to see President Clinton made a similar statement … and called my record superb,” the Republican presidential candidate said.

25. That doesn't have Dick to do with the struggles here on WI, but thanks for your concern.

Bill is an icon, a great speaker, a smart and compassionate man. He's popular with minorities and those who tend to stay home for mid-term and special elections. Walker won (and Feingold lost) in 2010 because 125k Democrats who voted for Obama couldn't or wouldn't get to the polls that fateful day in 2010. 108k in Milwaukee alone. We need Bill, warts and all.

than 5 minutes.

To wit, back in 1992, then-Governor Clinton flew back from New Hampshire to Arkansas to preside over the execution of a man with an IQ right at the borderline of what we consider 'retarded.' Why, you might ask, was it so important that Clinton execute someone with an IQ of 70 who requested that the dessert (a slice of pecan pie) from his final meal "be saved for later"? Clinton had to prove to voters that he was 'tough on crime' and distract attention from Gennifer Flowers.

It seriously does not get much scummier than that. OK, Operation Shocking and Awful is scummier, but only because there were 1,000,000+ victims.

mentally retarded, it's no skin off my nose. It's your conscience that will require a good scrubbing come judgment day.

The woman to whom I'm now married also just reminded me that she was on AFDC at the time of 'welfare reform' and saw her benefits drastically slashed. We'll never know how many women suffered death or disfigurement at the hands of an abusive partner because they saw no choice for themselves but to return to their abusive partner in the wake of such benefit cuts.

Which reminded me of slick Willie's talent for picking on those without the power to defend themselves, while fellating those he admires like Romney.

Dems like the Clintons make me ashamed I have ever called myself Dem.
