Did anyone have the stomach to watch this interview last night? I saw part of it. Anyone want to discuss?

I just didn't have the guts to watch it. I saw a clip where he is talking to a group of students and explained that "the right wing did not have an enemy after the end of the Cold War, so I became that enemy." :rolleyes:

I like my 65" TV too much to watch that guy and risk me throwing something at the screen. Insurance just doesn't cover that kind of rage anymore.

RL, I saw it. Give me a minute and I'll be back with some words on it.

In a nutshell, I hate him. More so after last night.

I posted this elsewhere, but the comments are relevant.

I forced myself to watch his interview with Dan Blather last night on 60 Minutes. In between me yelling "F*** you" (among other things) at the TV I learned this:

- He said that he wouldn't pardon Marc Rich again, not because he thinks that it is wrong, but because of the press and flak that he received.

- He "hated" that 18 Americans died on 3-4OCT93.

- He was glad that his mom wasn't alive to see the Lewinsky thing.

- He is very upset that his presidency will be remembered for the impeachment and not for "the good things I've done."

- He made an effort to stop bin Laden, he "really tried."

- He is most hurt by the nickname "Slick Willie."

As an aside his presidential library in LR, AR will have a full-scale model of the Oval Office (this is news to me) so people can see what it is like. No word on whether it comes with a Lewinsky mannequin under the desk....


1) No remorse.... only concern with opinion and his "image". My God, how I hate that President's are worried about the legacy and whatnot. How about freedom? Isn't THAT good enough?

2) "Hated" that they died? I'm sure they hated that you and Les Aspin didn't cowboy up and support them. When you are President you don't get a deferment from war...

3) Don't be a whore and you won't have to worry about your mother's perception of you.

4) The good things? Here's your list, Slick:

5) "Really tried?" I think we know how that turned out.

6) Don't act like a lying, back-stabbing, scheming SOB and you won't be viewed as such.

My wife was 19 when he first ran for the presidency and she voted for him. Like many, she was swayed by his charisma. By his re-election she'd seen first-hand the results of his presidency, his "legacy" and the "good things", and voted for Dole. She hasn't looked back.

The guy is a turd.

How true, Mr. President; how very true. RIP

From what little I saw, I expected nothing less from that draft dodging, dope smoking, prevaricating, womanizing, self-centered, oxygen thief. Only he could actually believe that his worse day in his presidency was when he had to tell his wife that he had actually had sexual relations with Monica-what a guy. Seems to me the CINC would have thought his blackest days would have been Somalia, Yemen, etc, etc, etc. But hell, its just my opinion.

Sorry Guys - I'm a newbie here but I couldn't resist adding my two cents. A couple of you have alluded to it but nobody has come out and flat said it. Ancient principle - to defeat your enemy you must first understand him. Or another one borrowed straight from the adversary - A people will have the government they deserve. Slick Willie is not the problem - he's a symptom of the problem. The problem is the attitude of that portion of the American people who elected him twice, who still can't understand how his designated successor was defeated by GW, and who allows Michael Moore types their platform spew moore effluvium. (I've been enjoying the content of that thread also!) Hopefully the pendulum has started to swing right again and take the country with it. November will tell. Personally I can't think of a better epitaph for the Clinton legacy than a strong Republic leading the world through the current crisis in spite of his influence. And no - I didn't watch Slick Willie either! YIS - Peregrino

I watched it more for AMUSEMENT than anything. It delighted me to no end that he was so profoundly offended by "SLICK WILLIE" !!!

The only thing that would have made me feel better would have been if he could have heard me Title him "Slick Willie, the Supreme Dickweed !!"

Reason to actually like the BBC?

They could hardly be more supportive of Klinton and softball/partisan in the interview than CBS was.

My heart bleeds for the Great Fornicator and his shameful legacy!

Hey, on a separate note, did anyone see Monica at the wedding she was in?

Moooo!!! Tipping 220, easily.

Wish Bill had ditched The Witch and married Monica. Or pre-op Paula. All scary!

I have not seen it. I just heard a news blip on one of the cable channels about it. They called Dan blather even-handed/fair (LOL) and stated that the BBC reporter was harsh. LOL

I guess it is really hard to make the Cigar Aficionado happy when interviewing him about his affairs, lies, and impeachment proceedings. Maybe billy boy should have gone on Jerry Springer.... he has a talent for making trailer trash "happy" when they have to "bare all" on his show. :p

Why is it that the military and those that support them are the only ones who are pissed off that his biggest regret was being unfaithful to his wife?

The guy is a tool. Anyone worried about their legacy is bound to have a bad one.

If you thought that I missed that, you'd better start really looking over your shoulder ("HINT" in the shadows !!) because that is where I'm lurking !! :D

The BBC was probably 'harsh' because Slick Willie was TOO right wing for them.

British Broadcasting Communists, remember...

Jack Moroney The greatest President of the 20th century, Ronald Reagan, was honestly and obviously devastated by the loss of 243 U.S. Marines in Lebanon. You KNOW that he felt that loss. Slick was worried only that Chillary would cut his sack off; that was the most difficult part of his Presidency.

Slick's library will have an exact replica of the Oval Office. Some day, I wish to go there and shit all over it, if only to remind Willy of what he did to the actual Oval Office.
