HERE'S A NICKEL, CALL SOMEONE WHO CARES:

Same Old Clintons (DOUG THOMPSON, Sep 16, 2003, Capitol Hill Blue)

Bill Clinton is back on the campaign trail, stumping for Democratic Presidential candidates in Iowa.

Looks like he’s back up to a few of his other tricks too.

Commenting on the Bush tax-cut package, Clinton told a campaign crowd “I never had a nickel until I left the White House.”

Same Bill Clinton. Same pack of lies.

All you have to do is look at the last financial disclosure statement Clinton filed before leaving the White House on January 20, 2001. It shows Bubba left 1600 Pennsylvania a rich man, with a net worth somwhere between $1 million and $5 million (financial disclosures are not precise. They only require a range of values).

During his last year in office, Clinton and his wife accepted $191,027 in gifts and Hillary signed an $8 million book deal while still First Lady. Plus the 200 grand a year that Clinton made as President ain’t exactly small change, especially when he didn’t pay rent for eight years and lived on other people’s money (namely, the taxpayers).


Can he open his mouth without self-pity spewing out?

The point is ... who cares? In Arkansas and thereabouts those in the know say "never trust a country boy."

Bill Clinton would rather walk across the street and tell a lie than sit on the porch and tell the truth.

Only when it's time to reposition the cigar...
