Daily I find myself in a quandary. I wake up in the morning deciding I’m going to give liberals the benefit of the doubt and within an hour I’m unable to contain myself.
Take for instance, Bill Clinton deciding to officiously extend the insightful revelation that “words have meaning.” Bill Clinton telling America “words have meaning” is like a portly Dom DeLuise lecturing the nation that dieting can be successful.
Feeling compelled to step forward at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event the former President, “warned of slippery slopes” saying anti-government rhetoric can lead to violence similar to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Clinton, the master of distortion, reminded America, “The words we use really do matter.” Odd language coming from a man whose slippery words propelled the entire nation down a slope of impeachment proceedings into a full-blown Constitutional crisis.
Seeing as Bill Clinton feels comfortable about drawing parallels with Oklahoma City and the Tea Party, then if I may be so bold? I believe his lying, cheating, adulterating and perjuring himself turned America into a type of Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Bill Clinton’s lying under oath was a political terrorist attack carried out by an American president. No truck, just deceitful lies with far-reaching, negative implications, “words with meaning” as Bill aptly points out.
Clinton, familiar bony finger raised, continued on,
What we learned from Oklahoma City is not that we should gag each other or that we should reduce our passion for the positions we hold – but that the words we use really do matter, because there’s this vast echo chamber, and they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. They fall on the connected and the unhinged alike.
Delirious and unhinged like Clinton was when staring into the camera emphatically swearing to America “I want you to listen to me, I did not have sex with Monica Lewinsky, not ever”…that kind of unhinged delirium?
I guess words do matter to Bill Clinton, unless of course those words happen to be the truth and then they don’t matter quite as much.
Clinton expounded on how “incendiary language can be taken the wrong way by some Americans,” sort of like when a President swears under oath to tell the truth, and then lies? William Jefferson C. is correct, the American people always want to believe the best and do have a tendency to “take it the wrong way” when someone presents boldfaced lies as if it were the truth.
Former President Clinton, who always was a proponent of personal responsibility, be it on the table, or under the desk, extended a Cuban cigar of peace to conservatives saying, “One of the things that the conservatives have always brought to the table in America is a reminder that no law can replace personal responsibility. And the more power you have and the more influence you have, the more responsibility you have.”
You got that right Sherlock. Hey Billy, follow the bouncing ball, more power…more influence…more responsibility, there you go.
Clinton said, “I’m glad they’re fighting over health care [yeah right] and everything else [yeah sure]. Let them have at it. But I think that all you have to do is read the paper every day to see how many people there are who are deeply, deeply troubled.” True–adultery, prevaricating, and sex addiction would certainly give Bill Clinton the credentialed experience to recognize other troubled people.
Clinton calling Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann a wife, mother and upstanding voice for freedom a troublemaker because she rightly identified Chicago thugs in Washington DC as a “gangster government” shows just how perverted and skewed liberals like Bill view the world.
A gravely serious Clinton, bifocals in hand coupled with extremely dry lips made a smooth transition into a fifth grade history lesson explaining how the original Boston Tea Party was in response to taxation without representation”-really? Clinton clarified that the current Tea Party “protesters are challenging taxation by elected officials, and the demonstrators have the power to vote them out of office.” Please God, for the first time ever, from Bill Clinton’s mouth, to Your ears.
Failing to use the consequences of his own selfish lying words as an example, the former president neither then, nor now, ever seemed to really care about the affect irresponsible, disrespectful behavior had on the country. Yet like an elderly reverend Bill Clinton pontificates on the importance of paying heed to words because he suddenly believes they have meaning?
“By all means keep fighting, by all means, and keep arguing. But remember, words have consequences as much as actions do, and what we advocate, commensurate with our position and responsibility, we have to take responsibility for. We owe that to Oklahoma City” – No, Mr. President we’ll will keep moving forward, speaking the truth, and exercising Constitutional God-given rights because we owe that to America.
