"I did not have sex with that woman."

Clinton was technical accurate and correct with his statement in the context it was given in. And technically correct is the best kind of correct.

Wow subby - that was a fully illiterate blog post with a book deal endorsement - congrats on the twofer...

FTA: "In fact, a Zogby poll found that, in every country except Saudi Arabia, US favorability ratings had plummeted around the Arab world since Obama came into office, and are lower than at the end of the Bush years."

Revisionist much? I'm sure that US favorability will head straight up once Mitt unleashes the weaponized 101st Mormon Missionaries on their asses. At least the Mormon doctrine of Lying For The Lord dovetails nicely with the major GOP planks...

#1 - I find it curious that she's concerned about our image in the eyes of Muslim countries.

#2 - I'm sure Romney's plan to be at war with every one of those countries will up our cred in the global Muslim community.

Impeachment by the House doesn't require a crime to be committed. The House can impeach the President whenever they want for whatever reason. The Senate tries him and the Senate didn't convict him.

From the wikipedias: The perjury charge failed with 45 senators (all Republican) voting "guilty" and 55 senators (45 Democrats and 10 Republicans) voting "not guilty". The obstruction of justice charge failed with 50 senators (all Republican) voting "guilty" and 50 senators (45 Democrats and five Republicans) voting "not guilty". In both cases, a two-thirds majority of 67 senators would have been required for conviction.

He lied under oath. That's my point. I was refuting the person saying that what he said was legally/technically true which it was deemed not to be. Neither do I think it is perjury because it was not material to the judicial proceeding.

He did not lie because whether his words were an act of lying was never ruled on in a court of law.
If you disagree, please point to the ruling where he was convicted of lying or, alternatively, were he was convicted of perjury.

Sort of:

In April 1999, about two months after being acquitted by the Senate, Clinton was cited by Federal District Judge Susan Webber Wright for civil contempt of court for his "willful failure" to obey her repeated orders to testify truthfully in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit. For this citation, Clinton was assessed a $90,000 fine, and the matter was referred to the Arkansas Supreme Court to see if disciplinary action would be appropriate.[24]
Regarding Clinton's January 17, 1998, deposition where he was placed under oath, the judge wrote:
"Simply put, the president's deposition testimony regarding whether he had ever been alone with Ms. (Monica) Lewinsky was intentionally false, and his statements regarding whether he had ever engaged in sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky likewise were intentionally false...."[24]
In January 2001, on the day before leaving office, Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension of his Arkansas law license as part of an agreement with the independent counsel[clarification needed] to end the investigation. Based on this suspension, Clinton was automatically suspended from the United States Supreme Court bar, from which he then chose to resign.[25]


Contempt of court for lying isn't the same as perjury, but ya know. Whatevs. This was more than a decade ago...

Arguably, it is important to bring this up every now and then because some people are interested in changing history.

No court ever brought him to trial, convicted him of anything and then disbarred him.
Similarly, he has never been convicted of perjury.
As part of a settlement to stop prosecution--a plea bargain--he agreed to have his license suspended for a few years. The SC confirmed this as they confirm all lawyer license suspensions in the US.

Susan Rice insisted the attacks were "spontaneous protests" and that there was no evidence that the attacks were premeditated

That's absurd. Of course the attack in Libya was premeditated and coordinated. Is this just another example of dishonest Obama spin, or are they really that incompetent?

Townhall and you are taking her out of context. Here is the quote and please tell me what is wrong with it:

"We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned," Rice told Schiefffer. She added that the U.S. will "want to see the results of that investigation to draw any definitive conclusions.

"Based on the best information we have to date," Rice said, "spontaneous protests" began outside the Benghazi consulate after demonstrations erupted in Cairo about a anti-Islam movie trailer.

"It looks like extremists elements joined in that effort with heavy weapons... and it spun from there into something much, much more violent," Rice said.

It was changed while it was happening.

He was being sued for Sexual Harassment by Paula Jones. This lawsuit had no merit. For example one of the claims that Paula Jones was making was that she was harassed because as a secretary she didn't get flowers on secretary's day.

The people funding her case were a rightwing think tank and they used the case as a vehicle to get a rightwing spokesperson in front of the camera calling Clinton (the now quite common) names like "socialist" and "unAmerican".

The appeal from this case after it was closed (again on lack of merit) was when they got Clinton for lying about an affair which really had nothing to do with the original case. So, there's that.

You want context? Obama administration got caught slippin, there's your context right there. They failed to anticipate the premeditated Libyan embassy attack and they're worried that it makes them look bad. So now they're trying to spin the story to make it sound like it was all just a totally spontaneous reaction to some movie on the internet, and that (despite all the flag burning and shouting "death to America" and "Obama, we are all Osama" going on all over the place) the protesters still love Obama and his policies. They're just legitimately upset with that "disgusting and reprehensible" movie out there, that's all. That's they story that Obama is trying to sell.
