That's me because I accidentally corrected "an asshole" to "an bastard" owing to a typo?

I see. The classic, if you make one error, you've erred in everything.


Oh, come on.  I'm mostly here to make jokes.

whidbey: walktoanarcade: What you are talking about it the ceremonial crap Clinton could have stopped, but instead made law.

Clinton did sign it.

Dude, we all have our criticisms against Clinton. Heck, I voted against him his second term.

But the whole "Bill Clinton is going to "really" run the country if Hillary is elected is a pretty sad troll.

You should own up to it. Maybe someone'll buy you a basket of crawdads or something.


Is this offer open to anyone, because I'll own up to that crazy shiat for a basket of crawdads.

capn' fun: I remember the Clinton administration very well.  Unemployment in my area was somewhere around 2%, taxes weren't as low as they are now, but they were reasonable, there was no deficit, the military was at home (except for some flare-ups in Eastern Europe), my college tuition for an entire year was the same as for only 3 credits today, and towards the end cell phones and internet were both becoming widely available and affordable.  The Executive, the Legislature, and the Judiciary were fiscally conservative/socially liberal, and most of the fringe on the left and the right were locked up tight in the basement where they belong.  I remember a Young Republicans meeting where we gleefully popped in a VHS tape and giggled and guffawed as Clinton squirmed his way through the definition of "is".  And most of all, I remember thinking, if the worst thing going on right now is that the President was getting blown by an intern who obviously enjoyed blowing him, then the country was doing a-okay. And I really wish we could have it all back, again, even if it meant that the President had an entire staff of young, hot interns whose entire job description was "Blow the President."  If we could get the economy back to where it was, I wouldn't even care if most of those interns were dudes.



I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank Piña Coladas. At sunset we made love like sea otters.  Thatwas a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get  that day over and over and over?

You know the Republicans are floundering when they start talking about Clinton.
 
2014-02-08 05:37:07 PM
This is just another symptom to the big problem faced by the GOP.  That problem is:

The GOP has NOTHING new to offer America.

The must keep rehashing the same old crap of Tax cuts for the rich, deregulation, unlimited military spending, anti-regulation, anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-poor, anti-labor, anti-science and lastly being the moral majority chosen by God.

In short, the GOP has got nothing.

log_jammin: Spad31: Let's not pretend his troubles weren't about "getting a hummer in the oval Office", but rather, committing perjury to a Grand Jury when testifying about it. A fact conveniently left out in discussions around here.

So, yes, Clinton IS an ass hole.

oh I never leave it out.

it is 100% fact that he lied about a question that he never should have been asked in the first place, during a political witch hunt orchestrated by the GOP to find something, anything, they could pin on Clinton. all because they couldn't stand the fact that they lost an election to him, twice.


He oversaw a lot of progress on sexual harassment int he workplace. His actions by someone else in the executive branch under his watch woudl have gotten you fired.

He should have been asked about it.

It makes him a hypocrite for doing it.

But I will agree with the rest of what you said, and that he shouldn't have been asked in those circumstances.

/All that being said he was a pretty good pres. Glass-Steagall, aside.

Don't get me wrong. Newt is a Giant bag of hypocritical shiat for him being part of the "family values" party and pulling the shiat he did. But he wasn't n charge fo a group pushing sexual harassment reform.

He pushed for rules that would make it so people who worked for him would get fired for what he did.

walktoanarcade: grumpfuff: walktoanarcade: udhq: walktoanarcade: Do anything but farking the president and smiling for fundraisers-gentleman and ladies alike.

The President is the President, not his or her spouse.

So, do you believe Michelle is abusing her position by promoting childhood nutrition?  Or Laura Bush by promoting literacy?  Or...Hillary by promoting healthcare reform?

You seem to be operating under the assumption that people lose their 1st amendment rights when their significant other is elected to office.  This is clearly not the case.

It's a bully pulpit, which as you showcased, and can be used for good.  I can't ignore the good they can do, but that's another argument.

So, just out of curiousity, does your argument extend to Hilary being elected violating the 22nd because she spent 8 years as her husband's advisor?

Absolutely. It completely violates the intentions of the 22nd. The American people elected Bill, not her.


Y'know, Congressmen of the past were much more capable at their jobs, and more concerned with actually doing their jobs; than today's Republicans.  They were capable of writing exactly what they wanted into the 22nd.  If they had wanted it to extend to spouses, WHY DIDN'T THEY EXPLICITELY STATE THAT?
Your entire spewing of bullshiat in this thread amounts to 'Internet Man Passionately Defends What He Wishes The Constitution Actually Said'.  You have concerns that Bill would unduly influence Hillary, but don't have any problem with her unduly influencing him back then, or Laura unduly influencing Bush?  And then you end up with the absolutely dumbest comment about how the will of the People should stand, with absolutely no self-reflection about how that comment destroys every last damned thing you've said so far.

You really caught me bud.

You are arguing that you won't get fired from a job with the federal govt for getting a BJ from an intern that works for you at the office.

You really think that is a good argument?

You really think you "caught" me with that?

I had you favorited as stupid/dishonest enough to compare Israel to the holocaust, I think "federal employees won't get fired for getting BJ's from an intern in the office" may trump that level of stupid, bu tI think "never had a real job" may be more appropriate if you are pulling George costanza level of stupid claims about the workplace.

No you can't get BJ's from interns in the office.

Even if the intern is totally into it (nevermind how ought it is to prove there is no fear of retribution if they don't go along, or desire for special treatment if they do), there is a little thing called "hostile work environment.

I don't get this line of questioning?

If you are just highlighting how supremely hypocritical he was for going after clinton on this, ok, but I think everybody who does't have their head in the san acknowledges that.

Okay, which rules? Stricter how? If you know this unequivocally to be true, show us the rules prior and the rules after. What section of code did he strengthen? What was the executive order? Memo? Do you have ANY evidence to back up this claim?
