Bill Clinton is Still Awesome.

And I dare you to say otherwise.

ps Like in Provence the only way to have Pernod is 50% ice cold water and 50% Pernod (chilled) anything else would be like having a Marischino cherry in your Oktoberfest beer!

Bill Clinton was the first president I voted for. I'd vote for him again anytime.

These photos make me choke up. Those women had no idea when they were ever coming home.

I love a happy ending.

I wasn't old enough to vote during Clinton's time but can I just take this moment right now to vote for him? Twice.

That first picture of Euna Lee doubled over from relief brings tears to my eyes. It says a lot.

Can you just imagine how they felt when they walked in the room and saw him standing there? It just overwhelms me!

While I think it was great Clinton took the time out of his busy schedule (what does he do these days, anyway?), I don't feel the American citizens should foot the bill for the reporters. Why not let the publication company they work for reimburse us? It's not like they were serving our country while they were there.

Also, because some of you seem to idolize smooth-talking liars (such as Clinton and Obama), our country is slowly deteriorating

I would post anonymously if my brain "worked" like that, too.

You know what Mark Twain said, "It's better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you're a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."

Anon: Yeah, the last pesky 16 years haven't proven anything.

P*D: What do you expect from someone who gets her political news from Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

Pardon me for being a little bitter about excessive governmental spending. I already give them more than a third of my salary, not to mention that this will likely go higher to pay for the "stimulus" (a.k.a. Payback plan) passed in February.

Pam Kersting said...

Love it! Happy that they are back at home!

hello gorgeous said...

Anon: Are you fucking joking?!

Have you read a paper in the past 10 years??!!

Do you remember the SURPLUS we had under Clinton and do you remember what BUSH did with it and left Obama with a RECORD budget deficit!?!

Not only that, Bush's wanton, reckless spending behavior set an example for the entire country which led us into our current economic situation.

And NOBODY, neither Republicans nor Democrats, knows how to get out of this unprecedented situation. So, unless you have something worthwhile to offer, go pester someone else.

TO ANON- while I love making money and spending money- If I feel that my tax dollars are going towards something reasonable like helping people get JOBS or HEALTHCARE or FOOD or SAFE ROADS. I am more than happy to give it to the government because everytime I give something away, it comes back to me ten fold.

And what rock do you live under where you think that "American citizens foot the bill for reporters"? Reporters are covered under the Geneva Convention and have a special status- read about it.

Although, I am sure you had no problem risking troops' lives to save those inane missionary girls from Waco, Texas who went to Iraq to preach the gospel.

Clinton did a wonderful thing. He and Al Gore are kind, caring human beings. I watched/heard Ms. Ling at the news conference describe what it was like for her to walk into the room and see Bill Clinton standing there and know their nightmare was over. She brought tears to my eyes that spilled over when she was shown reuniting with her adorable daughter.

I wasn't so impressed with Bill Clinton's wife's reaction to what he did and was disappointed.

Knowing that the "good ones" are back in power makes me sleep better at night. Knowing we still have Bill and Al to help us makes it better too. Better it is!!

It's pretty cool! Such a happy reunion.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Bill - done good..real good!

Anon - is unreal, enough said :D

Lolo said...

I love that those reporters are safely home with their families. I'm relieved that Korean Elvis thinks so highly of Bill that only Bubba would do for the mission of getting them released and that Clinton stepped up to the plate and did it. I giggled at the thought that even though they are his employees (kind of), Gore got upstaged again by the Big Dog. Poor Al, even after inventing the internets and being Champion of the Entire Planet, he still has to carry Bill's water.

However, I don't love Bill so I say "otherwise". I still harbor the ick from both Monica and his antics during the campaign.

The happiness that those women's families are experiencing is wonderful though and those pics choked me up.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

As "hello gorgeous" states
Do you remember the SURPLUS we had under Clinton and do you remember what BUSH did with it and left Obama with a RECORD budget deficit!?!

Obviously 'hello', you do not read the paper. If you thought about the backlash in deficits that occured during Bush's term, it was thanks to all the changes Clinton approved/backed while in office. Everything that is started in DC cannot be implemented immediately. Therefore it's a few years before we reap the benefits or disasters of their actions. Go ahead and find 1 change or idea that was signed and we immediately saw the benefits the next day. There is none. DC doesn't work that way. So you can try and blame Bush with Clinton's problems, but in reality, most of the good things that happened during Clinton's term were thanks to the politicians who signed things before he even started office, and were just then starting to reap the benefits. It works that way with all politicians - whether good or bad.
