Thought I'd throw a little red meat, Clinton Says Don't Blame Him for the Economic Cr


Given the sweep and severity of today's global economic crisis, it would seem there's plenty of blame to go around. But Bill Clinton doesn't think any of it should fall on his shoulders.


On Monday morning's Today Show, Ann Curry's interview with the former president - recorded over the weekend outside a Clinton Global Initiative event in Texas - addressed Clinton's inclusion on TIME's list of the "25 People to Blame" for the global economic collapse. "Oh no," he responded, "My question to them is: Do any of them seriously believe if I had been president, and my economic team had been in place the last eight years, that this would be happening today? I think they know the answer to that: No."

That's odd,

I would have expected Bill Clinton to stand up and take some amount of the responsibility. He has always represented an ethical "book end" for American politics.



Maybe it has to do with his selection of words.....

Like:

....."If I had been president, and my economic team had been in place".......


... ........then things would be humming right along
(is what he meant)

Let's hear from Alec Baldwin, a well known Left Winger who even he blames Clinton:

You don't have to watch the video if you don't want because the transcript is just below it.

Clinton gets some of the blame for expanding the Community Development Act that Carter started, and signing off on the deregulation of financial entities. All little straws that eventually broke the camel's back.

Clinton only takes the blame for stuff he can blame on someone else.

How? Are you saying Clinton would have turned peace and a balanced budget into two lost wars and a trillion dollar deficit like Bush did?

"Peace???" HAH! Google "Clinton Wars"...they are like real wars, but only the guys on the other team are allowed to shoot.

And you don't get combat pay.

Clinton was a President that enjoyed respect globally (some say 'despite' Monica - others say 'because' - while others don't give a flying fig - me for instance) Bush was a 'joke' figure globally and his administration dragged the standing of the USA to an all time low - B O now has the task of 'fixing' it up again!

In your dreams...

Did you hear this on "Oprah"?

He was a joke ... you just didn't hear it because your fingers were in your ears and you were yelling la a la la la.

World leaders laughed themselves to sleep for 8 years..

And she prepared well plus kept some evidence for clarity should he deny it.

He still did though, that's the pisser on him.

He was caught with his pants down and his tongue out and still denies it????
