Bill Clinton Accuses Ted Cruz of Making (Unspecified) False Statements
CNSNews ^ | September 29, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 09/29/2013 3:54:30 PM PDT by jazusamo

(CNSNews.com) - Former President Bill Clinton—who was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice and held in contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving “intentionally false” testimony—claimed to his former staffer George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that Sen. Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week.

“I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,” Clinton told his former aide.

Clinton did not specifically cite any false claim that he claims Cruz made on the Senate floor, nor did Stephanopoulos ask Clinton to give any examples of false statements by Cruz or in any way justify his assertion that Cruz had made such statements.

Clinton made the accusation against Cruz while explaining to Stephanopoulos why he thinks President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats should not give in to congressional Republicans on the question of delaying Obamacare.

“This is the House Republicans and the Tea Party people saying we don’t want to negotiate with the Democrats,” said Clinton. “We want to dictate over the Senate, over the House Democrats, over the Speaker of the House of our own party and over the president. We insist on dictating the course of the country.”

Stephanopoulos then asked: “So you’re saying you just have to stand up to that no matter what the consequences?”

“I do. I do,” said Clinton. “It’s terrible because all over the world people see like, you know---I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not.”

Starting on Sept. 24 and running through noon on Sept. 25, Sen. Cruz held the Senate floor for 21 hours and 19 minutes to make the case to his colleagues and the country that Congress ought to use the continuing resolution needed to fund the government after midnight this Monday to defund the implementation of Obamacare.

Stephanopoulos worked on Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and then as a senior adviser to Clinton during his first presidential term.

I guess he read the entire piece of legislation to be so bold as to insult a sitting Senator’s reputation.

Oh wait, not even Pelosi read this pig of a piece of crap.

Bill as far as we know was a horrible President who gave China the technology to launch nuclear missiles at us with accuracy when their stuff was blowing up on the pad.
Then he cheated left and right with his wife and raped that lady earlier in his career.
One of his old flames said Bill said Hillary is a bisexual and he was OK with that.

Quoth Slick Willy:

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the—if he—if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not—that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true.”

This could be a positive.

Every time BJ Clintoon has been brought into a campaign the candidate he was endorsing lost. Let’s hope that magic carries over to policy.

bj is a cult hero among dhimmis for being such an extraordinary liar.

What is truly despicable are the media that trot these road apples out as if they had an once of credibilty.

But then again the media operates in a sewer, we should give them no notice.

It’s easy for a lying sack of dog excrement to accuse someone else of lying .. Kind of tough though to point out those lies, when there weren’t any.

OK Bill give us specifics.
