    One look at you tells me all I need to know about you. I am so tired of liberals that think they are so brilliant. You are such a stupid jackass. You are so stupid you probably believe that the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks on 9/11. Every time you go on the internet, every time you make a bank transaction, or pay a bill, every time you try to email a congressman or senator they are getting so much information off of you. Of course it is all a conspiracy by the Bush administration. I have screwed around by...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists.

    AUSTIN, Texas - Democrats can't be afraid to talk about hot-button issues, including abortion, and should fight back against personal attacks from conservatives if they want to regain power in Washington, former President Bill Clinton said Saturday. "You can't say, 'Please don't be mean to me. Please let me win sometimes.' Give me a break here," Clinton said. "If you don't want to fight for the future and you can't figure out how to beat these people then find something else to do." Clinton, whose 2004 memoir "My Life" was a best seller, drew roaring applause during his speech from...

George Bush reckoned the biggest security issues he would face would be national missile defence and Iraq. "I told him that, based on the last eight years, I thought his biggest security problems, in order, would be Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida; the absence of peace in the Middle East; the standoff between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, and the ties of the Pakistanis to the Taliban and al-Qaida; North Korea; and then Iraq."...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    NEW YORK (AP) The memoirs of former President Clinton, one of last year's biggest books, will come out in May in paperback, with some additional material and a format that divides the epic-length work into two. The announcement was made Wednesday by Clinton's publisher, Alfred A. Knopf. "My Life," which has sold 2 million copies in its 957-page hardcover edition, actually will come out in two formats: trade paperback, which has the same dimensions as hardcover and will have a first printing of 250,000, and mass market paperback, a cheaper, pocket-sized edition.

    Bill Clinton has reached an agreement with a Chinese publisher over the translation of "My Life," after struggling to come up with an official version of his memoirs to counteract fabrications in pirated copies. The Chinese publisher, Yilin Press, had been concerned that some passages translated verbatim "would have a meaning in Chinese somewhat different than what I meant," Clinton said Tuesday. "We reached an agreement on language which, if accurately translated into Chinese, would make it clear that I have both differences in policy (from the Chinese) and a long-term commitment to reconciliation," Clinton said.

    When it comes to selling books, who's the man? Comedian Jon Stewart, that's who. His book "America," a parody of U.S. civics, in the vein of his "news" broadcasts performed on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," passed former President Bill Clinton's "My Life" on Barnes & Noble's best-selling book list for 2004. Clinton's book had been No. 1, but sales of Stewart's tome during the Christmas season surpassed the former chief executive's biography, which had been on bookshelves three months longer. Nevertheless, according to the New York Daily News, Clinton's "My Life" most likely will take B & N's top...

    The revelation that former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger walked off with classified documents bearing on the Clinton administration's response to terrorism raises questions. Some of those questions may be answered simply by thumbing through President Clinton's autobiography. My Life, is much like Clinton's life — oversized, unabashedly self-serving and filled with contradictions. But those curious about Clinton's thinking on national security — and uninterested in his Arkansas childhood or the saga of Monica, Paula, Gennifer, et al. — need not spend a lot of time reading the 957-page memoir. His first mention of terrorism is not until page 574....

    LOUIS XVI’s diary entry for 14 July, 1789, consisted of a single word: "Nothing". To be fair to Louis, he used his diary almost exclusively for recording his hunting exploits, so no kill meant nothing of note had happened, however many pike-wielding peasants were dismantling his kingdom as he wrote. Nevertheless, I can’t help feeling that here was an opportunity missed. If only Louis could have slipped a quick "Ooh! Bad news from Paris, or what?" into the long list of "nothings" (he wasn’t a terribly successful hunter) he might have gained a few more fans - posthumously, at least....

    Campaigning in California on Wednesday, Sen. John Kerry acknowledged that ex-president Bill Clinton's book tour was overshadowing his presidential campaign, telling a crowd in San Jose: "I’m told we’ve got about 2,000 people out here. All the rest of the Democrats are at the Clinton book signings." While the remarks were supposedly delivered in jest, Kerry campaign officials have been wincing all week as the ex-president inadvertently reminds America of what happened the last time Democrats ran the White House: Sex scandals at home and unchecked terrorism abroad. Clinton didn't help matters Thursday night, when he gushed about the prospect...

    In 1992, presidential candidate Bill Clinton flew home from New Hampshire to affirm the execution of a cop killer, Rickey Ray Rector. Rector was brain-damaged; when he took his last walk, he left a slice of pecan pie in his cell, intending to eat it when he returned. Many have wondered whether the Arkansas governor was influenced by politics. His campaign was struggling with reports that he had had an affair with a blond entertainer, Gennifer Flowers, and the execution embellished his tough-on-crime reputation. But Rickey Ray Rector is not mentioned in Bill Clinton's autobiography, My Life. Instead, we read...

    THE KEY to understanding Bill Clinton is to realise that he is a classical narcissist — a person who has no internalised self-image and must derive his feelings about who he is from the views and opinions of those around him. Perpetually in search of human mirrors who can reflect back to him a positive image of himself, he has chosen an occupation replete with men and women who are characterised by this disorder. Only in Hollywood and the theatre are more narcissists to be found than in politics. Indeed, Mr Clinton chose politics as his profession because it offered...
  • Clinton's "Life" Tainted Crimson (Harvard prof: Bill lied)

    Clinton's 'Life' Tinted Crimson By TIMOTHY J. MCGINN Crimson Staff Writer There are places Bill Clinton remembers in My Life—just not too well, according to Kennedy School of Government professor and Dunster House Master Roger B. Porter, who alleges that the former president fabricated a damning conversation between the two of them in his newly-published memoir. Recalling the impetus for his 1992 presidential campaign, Clinton writes that he was initially ambivalent towards seeking the office, but says that a call from Porter “showed what was wrong with [then-President George H. W. Bush’s] administration.” According to Clinton’s book, Porter—then Bush’s Economic...

    Monica Lewinsky has told of her feelings of betrayal at the version of their affair given by Bill Clinton in his new autobiography. The former White House intern attacked Mr Clinton's "lies" over the affair, exposed in 1998, seven months after he first denied the relationship. He was impeached but was acquitted. In his book My Life, Mr Clinton writes of the affair: "I did something for the worst possible reason - just because I could. I think that's just about the most morally indefensible reason that anybody could have for doing anything." But tonight Ms Lewinsky says in an...

    "The president and his aides demeaned the offices of the president and vice president, took advantage of minority groups, pulled down all the barriers that would normally be in place to keep out illegal contributions, pressured policy makers, and left themselves open to strong suspicion that they were selling not only access to high-ranking officials, but policy as well. Millions of dollars were raised in illegal contributions, much of it from foreign sources." – The Thompson Committee on the Clinton 1996 re-election campaign Throughout the day on April 3, 1996, the man who most fully embodied the historic corruption of...

    Impeachment process to blame for 9-11? Interviewing impeachment manager Bob Barr, CNN's Paula Zahn on Monday night advanced the notion that "analysts...are suggesting that this impeachment was a great distraction to the country and might have slowed down any kind of progress that was being made on the hunt for Osama bin Laden." In contrast, Newsweek's Howard Fineman, appearing on Imus in the Morning, held Bill Clinton culpable for doing a "big nothing" in response to a series of terrorist attacks on his watch. Fineman pointed out how Clinton said he was worried about how "it would look like he...

BRODER ormer President Bill Clinton, in a 957-page autobiography that is by turns painfully candid about his personal flaws and gleefully vindictive about what he calls the hypocrisy of his enemies, blamed his affair with Monica Lewinsky on the "old demons" that have haunted him all his life.He said the affair was personally humiliating and almost cost him his presidency and his marriage. In the end, after months sleeping on the couch, a year of intensive marital counseling and his acquittal on impeachment charges...
