Bill Clinton to Have Key Convention Role (Impeached, disbarred, traitor, rapist to nominate Obama)
The New York Times ^ | Sunday, July 29, 2012 | Jeff Zeleny

Posted on 07/29/2012 7:38:18 PM PDT by kristinn

Former President Bill Clinton is set to play a central part in the Democratic convention, aides said, and will formally place President Obama’s name into nomination by delivering a prime-time speech designed to present a forceful economic argument for why Mr. Obama deserves to win a second term.

The prominent role of Mr. Clinton, which is scheduled to be announced on Monday, signals an effort by the Obama campaign to pull out all the stops to rally Democrats when they gather for their party’s national convention in Charlotte, N.C. An even more important audience will be the voters across the country who will see the address carried by television networks.

“There isn’t anybody on the planet who has a greater perspective on not just the last four years, but the last two decades, than Bill Clinton,” David Axelrod, a top strategist to the Obama campaign, said in an interview on Sunday. “He can really articulate the choice that is before people.”

I keep hearing from several political sources that Bubba can't stand Barry boy.

Why would he endorse this creep? Maybe because they both are creeps.

Okay, I don’t understand certain things.

So Democrats want to rally the troops and pull out all the stops for Obama’s convention.

But, we’ve heard that many Democrats are skipping the convention.

In fact, Nancy Pelosi told her members of Congress to skip the convention, that it was more important for them to spend time campaigning for their own re-election to Congress.

So which is it? Should these good Democrats go to the convention after all? Now we’re building it up, for Bill Clinton to rally the troops? But some of the troops were told to stay away, and many others announced they wouldn’t be there??? What the heck?

So what is a good Democrat to do? Go to the convention of stay away????????

“Why, Bill Clinton has probably chased more skirt,
banged more interns, snorted more chinese campaign contributions, and sucked up to more communist
dictators then Barak Obama!”

Would he be doing this on Wednesday, where the NFL moved opening night (Cowboys at Giants) to in order to accommodate Barry on Thursday night? If so, who in the world will be watching?

Maybe it’s all part of the plan and he gets to endorse the Obama/Hillary ticket. Plus say he’ll be the co-vice-president.

Gee the Globe tabloid said a dying Clinton heartbroken he’ll never see Chelsea’s baby and he’s begging Hillary to call off the divorce. The Globe might not be the best source of news but it sure put a smile on my face!

The other steamy crock is that Clinton was a boon to the economy - how about his massive contribution to the financial crisis. The Community Reinvestment Act - and the creation of subprime was all his doing. He greatly reduced the lending standards after he erroneously thought they were ‘racist’. Clinton put tremendous pressure on banks, to lend subprime even if they lost money - it was the beginnings of the crisis. Bush complained about it but did not stop it.

Clinton, Cisneros, and Cuomo over at HUD were in a drunken orgy of mortgage lending. Throw in Franklin Raines at Fannie Mae and the crime family is complete. What these jokers, led by Grand Master Clinton, did to the global mortgage investment market was akin to breeding termites and air dropping them on every home. Clinton gets a complete pass on the debacle but history will not treat him so kind. There is far too much evidence.

I would take Clinton over Obama any day. Never thought I would say that but man I made some big bucks in the 90’s with the stock market. Clinton was not a great president but he was better than Obama who is ruining EVERYTHING!!!

I won’t be able to stand watching it, but I will be interested in reading summaries to see if Clinton gets in some of his legendary subtle swipes at ole Bammy-boy in the speech. Bammy, not being the bright bulb his sycophants try to pretend he is, won’t “get” the swipes until well after the speech, when somebody explains it to him. That would be very amusing, and the only thing which would make the speech worthwhile. The rest will have to be brazen lies, as Clinton can hardly honestly talk about how great Bammy-boy has made the economy.

Some History:

Resolution Impeaching William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Resolved, That William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, against William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Article I

In his conduct while President of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and manipulated the judicial process of the United States for his personal gain and exoneration, impeding the administration of justice, in that:

On August 17, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton swore to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth before a Federal grand jury of the United States. Contrary to that oath, William Jefferson Clinton willfully provided perjurious, false and misleading testimony to the grand jury concerning one or more of the following: (1) the nature and details of his relationship with a subordinate Government employee; (2) prior perjurious, false and misleading testimony he gave in a Federal civil rights action brought against him; (3) prior false and misleading statements he allowed his attorney to make to a Federal judge in that civil rights action; and (4) his corrupt efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses and to impede the discovery of evidence in that civil rights action.

In doing this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.

Article III

In his conduct while President of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice, and has to that end engaged personally, and through his subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or scheme designed to delay, impede, cover up and conceal the existence of evidence and testimony related to a Federal civil rights action brought against him in a duly instituted judicial proceeding.

The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included one or more of the following acts:

(1) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him to execute a sworn affidavit in that proceeding that he knew to be perjurious, false and misleading.

(2) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him to give perjurious, false and misleading testimony if and when called to testify personally in that proceeding.

(3) On or about December 28, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly engaged in, encouraged or supported a scheme to conceal evidence that had been subpoenaed in a Federal civil rights action brought against him.

(4) Beginning on or about December 7, 1997, and continuing through and including January 14, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton intensified and succeeded in an effort to secure job assistance to a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought against him in order to corruptly prevent the truthful testimony of that witness in that proceeding at a time when the truthful testimony of that witness would have been harmful to him.

(5) On January 17, 1998, at his deposition in a Federal civil rights action brought against him, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly allowed his attorney to make false and misleading statements to a Federal judge characterizing an affidavit, in order to prevent questioning deemed relevant by the judge. Such false and misleading statements were subsequently acknowledged by his attorney in a communication to that judge.

(6) On or about January 18 and January 20-21, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton related a false and misleading account of events relevant to a Federal civil rights action brought against him to a potential witness in that proceeding, in order to corruptly influence the testimony of that witness.

(7) On or about January 21, 23 and 26, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton made false and misleading statements to potential witnesses in a Federal grand jury proceeding in order to corruptly influence the testimony of those witnesses. The false and misleading statements made by William Jefferson Clinton were repeated by the witnesses to the grand jury, causing the grand jury to receive false and misleading information.

In all of this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed his trust as President and has acted in a manner subversive of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.

Clinton paved the way for this mess we have now; and the Clintons are big socialists who worked and work hand in glove with the one world government crowd. Clinton only changed his tune on the economic end of it when the Republicans took Congress two years in. Clinton betrayed this country with his puerile dallying with the intern; putting himself in line to the blackmailed by some foreign entity (or was he and we just don’t know it?) - I think he thought he’d just boink us, “smart” as he was, and we’d never learn about it. Only we did.. and now he’s the vaunted “elder statesman”, and Hillary’s the powerful government appointee. Whoopee!

The Bush's have to go into hiding but the impeached, disbarred, perjurer, philanderer Clinton is the one making a splash for his party's nominee's reelection.

That tells us a lot about where we are as a nation. Historians should take note!

The elite family that ranks with Kennedys and the Romneys gushed when speaking of the former Rapist in Chief. Don't be bad mouthing the first black President and now Dubya's and Jeb's adopted brother to those Rockefeller Country Club Republican's snobs because they will take your head off.

This is what the former head spook in the Ford-Rockefeller Administration and his wife "Bar" had to say in a recent Parade magazine about the lowest man to hold the highest office since Caligula.

http://www.parade.com/news/2012/07/15-george-hw-bush-family-is-what-matters.html?index=2

Which brings to mind the famous friendship that you’ve established with Bill Clinton, your political rival in 1992. As you became friends with President Clinton, what most surprised you about him?

GB: Well, he knows a lot about everything. He’s a very knowledgeable, bright man. And he sat out here one time and we talked about every possible [subject]—one after another.

BB: But he never said a mean word about anyone. He never stopped with any subject you could name. And he never said one thing that would truthfully bother his—be a problem for his wife. Now that’s pretty good if you took four hours and he never said a mean word about anybody. “[My] brother by another mother,” the boys call him. But he’s very nice—I think he thinks of George as the father he never had. Truthfully. I mean that as a great compliment. He’s been very thoughtful about calling and he’s a good fellow.

Obama needs whitey to keep him in the White House but many who voted for him in 2008 are bailing out.

So the Dems need Bill to pull in every old Clinton voter they can find.

Bill is pretty good at shooting out zingers disguised as left handed compliments and he doesn’t really care for Obama.
