I’m with you on this one, Willie Boy.

Our paradigm now seems to be: something terrible happened to us on September 11, and that gives us the right to interpret all future events in a way that everyone else in the world must agree with us,” said Clinton, who spoke at a seminar of governance organized by Conference Board (news – web sites).
“And if they don’t, they can go straight to hell.”
The Democratic former president, who preceded George W. Bush at the White House, said that sooner or later the United States had to find a way to cooperate with the world at large.
“We can’t run,” Clinton pointed out. “If you got an interdependent world, and you cannot kill, jail or occupy all your adversaries, sooner or later you have to make a deal….
“Since September 11, it looks like we can’t hold two guns at the same time,” Clinton said. “If you fight terrorism, you can’t make America a better place to be.”
Clinton said that if he were at the White House right now he would scrap a 726-billion dollar tax cut proposal made by the president in January to stimulate the flagging economy.

  1. I know I’m in the minority but I actually like Clinton, despite his penchant for … you know. But, where was all this wisdom when he was in office? And why can’t we find a negotiator to help us out of our “america, held hostage” bind with our govt., our neighbors, our allies & enemies, like Kissinger did during his reign? He is trying to help, but nobody will listen to him, now when we need him the most, as an “interdependent world” where there’s no where to run, no where to hide from our enemies. Will there ever be day when America at large forgives Clinton his transgressions and allows him to help us out, do you think?

  2. Yup. I liked Clinton too and voted for him. And, unlike our current leader, Clinton’s crime was one of personal stupidity, and not global immorality.
