Video: Hill defends Bill, says “my husband did a great job”

posted at 7:01 pm on September 26, 2006 by Ian


At a press conference early today Senator Hillary Clinton defended Slick Willy’s actions to prevent 9/11:

“I think my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take these attacks,” she said. “All you have to do is read the 9/11 Commission [Report] to know what he and his administration did to protect Americans and prevent terrorist attacks against our country.”

Read more about her remarks here and here.

What attacks is she talking about?

An almost innocuous question from Chris Wallace?

JammieWearingFool on September 26, 2006 at 7:05 PM

The whole thing was staged to make the poor wittle Democrats look like victims of the big bad Republicans.

But Bully Billy didn’t look too victimish as he was stabbing Wallace in the thigh with his big pointy finger.

Seriously, I don’t remember Rummy having some girl come out to defend him after he was asked the same question.

NTWR,

She’s practicing for 2008. Gotta look tough. Man-girl like.

Kokonut on September 26, 2006 at 7:17 PM

She doesn’t need any practice!

NTWR on September 26, 2006 at 7:32 PM

“…and you have that smirk on your face…”

Mr. Wallace should have said “…and you, did you have a smirk on your face when Monica was servicing you, Sir?”

Many uncertainties and many opportunities missed, by several administrations.

Some things are, however, certain:

1. Bill Clinton was distracted by Monica Levinski, that woman. At the time they considered it just a Kennediesque way of life, nuanced and too elite for us, dunces to grasp.
2. Some Republicans did imply that he was “wagging the dog” but he gave them all the reasons to, because of Monicagate.
3. He was impeached and they will never live that down, nor will history.
4. 9/11/01 happened and all of a sudden what seemed to them just a private affair became a national monstrosity and wake-up call.
5. He and Mrs. Clinton would like for us to forget and ignore that and focus on their vision of his legacy and her presidential future; and blame everything on Mr. Bush 43.
6. History is what happened and not what we wished would have happened.
7. They don’t control the media, or at least not all of it, and…
8. Resort to tantrums.
9. The American people know and this strikes fears into the 2008 plan and that legacy thing…

Liberals always perceive themselves as being attacked by political opponents or anyone they wish to paint in that light. It lets them play the victim card to the electorate. However, when the country is under attack, they turn a blind eye towards it and in most cases actually end up abetting America’s real enemies.

Valiant on September 26, 2006 at 7:38 PM

Someone has to link a clip of Krauthammer’s screed on Fox tonight, he was just brilliant … left that NPR douche speechless.

gash on September 26, 2006 at 7:50 PM

Bet anything that Team Clinton is trying to label certain interviewers as unfair in order to preclude them from moderating the 2008 debates.

MRegine on September 26, 2006 at 8:03 PM

She probably thinks her rapist husband did a great job not taking those “attacks” from Mrs. Broaddrick either.

You better put some ice on that.

Terp Mole on September 26, 2006 at 8:07 PM

Pig in a Pants Suit! What else can I say?

NEMETI IN SYRACUSE on September 26, 2006 at 8:19 PM

Gee, we have to put up with this shrill for the next ten years or more. Ick!

Catie96706 on September 26, 2006 at 8:23 PM

Seems as if Hillary is always backing up Bill’s outrageous behavior. When will she learn? Answer…never. Because she has no future without him.

Wade on September 26, 2006 at 8:37 PM

President Clinton has stated one item of truth – “I failed”

and only one item of truth

Marvin on September 26, 2006 at 8:51 PM

This is Shakespearean! His greatest power was that he was magnetic and truly charming when you met him in person; I did on several occasions and, I kid you not, you could feel the electricity when he came in the room – even early on in NH, right after he announced.

The sweetest revenge is that those traits (which carried him from a single parent lower-class life, to the becoming the most powerful man in the world), are the EXACT same traits which caused his downfall.

By succumbing to his own trailer park urges, by having no control over his obsessions, he burst the bubble on his Cinderella story legacy. Just as he was reaching for the brass ring, with all the world watching, he falls off the horse, into the mud. A most fitting end. You can take Bubba out of Arkansas, but…..

Alden Pyle on September 26, 2006 at 8:54 PM

Well, what is she supposed to do…stay at home and bake cookies?

Heh.

Bellicose Muse on September 26, 2006 at 9:39 PM

Billary Klintoon applauds her husband’s “tough” stand against right wing attack dogs.

Could you liberals be in deeper dog doo doo?

Had Billary Klintoon’s husband applied a fraction of that “resolve” to defending America, we’d have an entirely different political dynamic in place today.

But, we suffer liberals. Their lies, their failures, their institutional fraud. How many more American innocents will be slaughtered at work, school, or play because so few care to confront contemporary liberals and usher them into the septic tank of history. I intend to see them arrive at that destination with haste and glee.

Spider Dan on September 26, 2006 at 9:57 PM

Tammy Wynette said that she wrote “Stand by your man” in 15 minutes and spent a lifetime defending it.

Hillary left Bill alone for 15 minutes and is spending a lifetime defending it.

Entelechy on September 26, 2006 at 10:05 PM

Chillary has set back the feminist movement 30 years. With a husband who …..

Cheated on her before he became president,
Committed adultery with a 20 yr old intern in his oral oval office, while Hill was upstairs shredding Rose Law firm docs,
Lied to her about having a Lil Willie tune-up,
Whines like a little baby because Chris Wallace asked a tough question,

…. yet she still steps up to the plate to defend this womanizing wimp loser of a man.

And the smartest woman in America doesn’t even realize she is playing this power game of hers for naught. Slick Willie has turned the spotlight back on himself. Oops. America has been reminded once again why the Clintons should never be allowed back in the White House again.

We can do without a convicted liar and an advocate for the convicted liar.

This is Round 1 of Condi vs. Hillary.

Lothar on September 26, 2006 at 11:17 PM

Interesting.

This shriveled Seahag defends her philandering ticket to the top, and says he did a good job DEFENDING DEMOCRATS, without ever mentioning the reason for this whole affair.

…the fact that Bubba never bothered defending America while he was despoiling the Oval office, and someone finally asked him about it.

If Osama had been wearing a thong, Bill C. would have nailed his rear end long ago.

(If Hillary were wearing one, Osama would surrender.)

profitsbeard on September 26, 2006 at 11:32 PM

Isn’t this like Bill saying, “Monica gave great head!”?

Tim Burton on September 26, 2006 at 11:56 PM

One of the money quotes:

Hillary continued: “I’m certain that if my husband and his national security team had been shown a classified report entitled ‘Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States,’” Clinton said, “he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team.”

Yeah, sure. I remember how Clinton just sprung into action after the 1996 PDB on Operation Bojinka and the 12-04-98 PDB.

It’s time to look forward — not backward — already.

Fly_in_Ointment on September 27, 2006 at 12:26 AM

Hillary should know when to just shut up.

Following her advice, I did read the 911 report, as well as some other sources. She should have herself.

Clinton Tough on Terror: A False Legacy

LewWaters on September 27, 2006 at 1:09 AM

Once again the moonbats and their leaders are tone deaf to the public… they treat everyone like their constituency which is mostly made up of uneducated fools.

Anybody with any sense will see this for what it is… pure desperation. However to the moonbats it’s more of the “truth to power” crapolla they love to chant!

I think it’s great. The more they “bring it on” the further the lose ground with the swing voters. Of course we will have to hear the same old nonsense in November how the Rove and the Republicans stole the election… but hey that’s fun to watch too!

The part I love the best is when they say ” we didn’t get our message out” Well duh! did they ever think they did too good of a job and that’s the real problem. The voters get your message, but you sound like a bunch of raving lunatics!

Unless the dems can get a few adults in their party, I think it’s only a matter of time before the self destruct!

Bob on September 27, 2006 at 6:22 AM

This is delicious! Six weeks from the midterms -which the Dems already counted as “chickens hatched”- and they’re now forced to rehash all the sticky (cough, cough) issues that define the carnival sideshow known as the Clinton Presidency.

Libs are patting themselves on the back for Bill getting sassy with Wallace but they don’t see the obvious; this flap only serves to remind most Americans that the Clintons are like the guests on Jerry Springer – too stupid to realize that they’re a detestable spectacle, not a celebrity.

You can’t make this crap up, even in the face of impending victory they find ways to beat themselves.

Alden Pyle on September 27, 2006 at 8:59 AM

Lothar, I’ve been predicting that since 2000. Imagine those debates!
Condi wins in a landslide.

Hey Hillary, I have two words for ya … Moga … Dishu. Yeah, he did a GREAT job. Idiot.

Tony737 on September 28, 2006 at 2:03 AM

Hillary continued:

“I’m certain that if my husband and his national security team had been shown a classified report entitled ‘Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States,’” Clinton said, “he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team.”

Sure, he would have said “Scuse me Monica, hon, I’ll be right back. After all, I can take care of bin Laden and use a cigar at the same time”.
