Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: Obama May Look Like A “Wuss” Over Syria
Posted on 06/13/2013 8:17:20 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
In sharp remarks directed against his Democratic successor and his wifes former boss, President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that President Barack Obama risks looking like a wuss, a fool, and lame for not doing more to influence events in Syria.
Clinton, speaking with Sen. John McCain Tuesday night in a closed press event sponsored by the McCain Institute, contrasted Obamas inaction in Syria to his own action in the 1999 NATO intervention in Kosovo, which included the bombing of the forces of Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic. Clinton said a president must look beyond public and Congressional reluctance to military intervention for the sake of national security and to save lives.
You just think how lame youd be
suppose I had let a million people, two million people be refugees out of Kosovo, a couple hundred thousand people die, and they say, You could have stopped this by dropping a few bombs. Why didnt you do it? And I say, because the House of Representatives voted 75% against it? Clinton said. You look like a total wuss, and you would be.

...and the lesson to be learned there is if the president is going to chose sides, be better be sure he chooses the right side.
I Don't Care Who! ...Just Bomb Somebody!
A “wuss”, Bubba? As in, the type of “wuss” that doesn’t retaliate for the terror bombings two American Embassies, resulting in the deaths of 200+ people?
Secular homicidal thug that has not threatened us vs. radical Islamist megahomicidal thugs that regularly threaten us. Hmm, can't really see a right side.
Do they have an aspirin factory in Syria??
There's a McCain Institute? Who knew, and what the hell does it do?

How many people died in Rwanda and Billy Boy didn't do a g**damn thing to save a single one of them.... And why didn't he drop a bomb on ubl when he had the chance(s)?
HA-HA, slapping Obama when he’s down.
However link says ‘Clinton, speaking with Sen. John McCain Tuesday night in a closed press event sponsored by the McCain Institute, ...’
That should tell you how much this advice is worth. I still question Clintons bombing of Serbia, but at least he didnt invade and occupy.
Didn’t he let 600,000 people die in the hutu vs tutsi war?
He is a wuss and uses proxies for his sissy ideas to fight his battles.
Guy is a pussy.
Oh, come on, everyone. America stands as the world’s shining example of the welfare/warfare state. Everyone oughtta be doing it!
Better stock up on popcorn. This will be fun.
muzzies killin’ muzzies....why would we want to interfere?
what were you in Somalia, Bubba..? waiting waiting waiting
african embassies that were being provided security oversight by Susan Rice, no less, another clinton carry-over
Challenge O'bama's manhood.
That'll work out great, you fool.
He'll do something just to be doing something.
When the “Former Occupant of the Oval Office, 1993-2001” begins lecturing the Current Occupant on being a “wuss”, then you know the gloves are off in this slap-fight.
The Red Chinese have also lectured The Won on his economic policies, and the Russian Federation Maximum Leader Putin puts in his two cents’ worth concerning domestic “observation” of suspicious elements.
I begin to see a pattern emerging here, maybe the Hope & Change has become the Hop & Chant.
Didn’t he give away our secrets long ago.
Go away, Bubba.
Willie, don't go all high-minded on us. You know damn good and well the reason you started bombing Serbia was to divert the press from a.) impeachment, b.) Juanita Broaddrick and c.) the Cox Committee.
Oh...and Hillary told you to...
To who? John McCain? Yeah, all 1.5 people I know who even know anything about Syria are real concerned about it and just itching to get involved in a another pseduo war.
oooohhh thats gonna put Obambi on a slow boil...
I love it that things are heating up from Bill Clinton- He can attack Obama and win- Shrillary cannot.
Well at least Bill is an Equal Opportunity Offender when it comes to ditching the long-held tradition of an ex-POTUS keeping his mouth shut in regards to his successors.
Then let the two of these idiots grab a rifle and get on over there to help out. We’ve sacrificed enough of our wonderful young people over there nation building for animals.
I'm really not sure the doctrine of dropping bombs on people who don't like us on behalf of other people who don't like us and changing a country full of people who don't like us into another country full of people who don't like us, can be described in any sense as a rational foreign policy. The tail - 0bama's scandal poll numbers - is in every sense wagging the dog here. Watch it happen.
Obama looks like a wuss.
muzzies killin muzzies....why would we want to interfere?
Bill Clinton—he has broke with Obama—The beginning of the end, Jay Leno, now Bill—Watch as Hillary comes out against him next—the dam is about to break! Maybe, just maybe, Beck was on to something real! If he is—he will have proven himself a great American (again).
Your comment reminded me that Bill is not all too happy that Obama team are covering their own butts while leaving Hillary’s reputation hanging on Bengazi.
That may be the sudden change in Bill's attitude. It also tells me that maybe Hillary was the hawk in the administration who insisted on bombing Libya to begin with.
