Clinton at a church on Martha's Vineyard, Aug 28, 1998 - Anniversary of
March on Washington
"And so, it is important that we are able to forgive those we believe
have wronged us even as we ask for forgiveness from people we have
And I heard that first -- first in the civil rights
movement. Love thy neighbor as thyself."
Bill Clinton went to a parochial school for two years. His mother took him
to Sunday schools in both Hope and Hot Springs. By the time he was eight,
he would get up early on Sunday get himself washed and dressed, and walk
to the Park Place Baptist Church four blocks from his home, carrying a
Bible given to him by his family. He was baptized by immersion at an early
age after professing his faith.
Is it possible that the Park Place Baptist Church, the Sunday Schools, and
the Catholic parochial schools never mentioned Matthew 22:34-40 - the
verses with the two great commandments of Christianity: the greatest and
first commandment to love God; and the second one, which is "to love thy
neighbor as thyself"?
The following two statements are not really "stupid", but they
are interesting considering what is presently going on...
"I think the country could be spared a lot of agony
and the government could worry about inflation and a
lot of other problems if [Nixon would] go on and

making false statements to government officials
and interfering with the FBI and the CIA is an

old." -- President Clinton in Ashe County, N.C. He was speaking on the

So does this mean he is maybe the last person in America who wants to get
the matter behind us?

Philadelphia, May 28, 1993 in the
Courtyard, City Hall, Philadelphia, PA. Someone in
the audience who
disagreed voiced an opinion, and that was Clinton's response. So, I
guess if you disagree with Clinton, you shouldn't be allowed to have

"The Bush administration continues to coddle China, despite its continuing
crackdown on democratic reform, its brutal subjugation of Tibet, its
irresponsible export of nuclear and missile technology... Such forbearance on our part
might have made sense during the Cold War when China was the counterweight
to Soviet power. It makes no sense to play the China card now when our
opponents have thrown in their hand." -- Gov. Bill Clinton, Georgetown
University, December 12, 1991.
How ironic that President Clinton would say this!
I guess he thinks it's O.K. for him to coddle China if they fund his
"I can tell you that the decisions we made, we made because we thought they were in the interests of the American
people,"--Bill Clinton, on being asked why he signed waivers, against
the Pentagon's protest, to sell Loral missile guidance systems
technology to Communist China, enabling China for the first time to
launch nuclear weapons.

Times, front page)
Oh. Risking National security is in our best interest.
The president was giving a speech in Berlin in May, 1998, commemorating
the 50th anniversary of the Airlift, which kept the city afloat in 1948-49
when Stalin attempted to starve it into submission. Clinton chose to give
special recognition to then-Lt. Gail Halvorsen of Provo, Utah, who had
dropped packages of candy for Berlin's children from his aircraft as he
landed with supplies at Templehoff Airport.
"She is here with us today," the president declared, speaking of
Halvorsen. "I'd like to ask her to stand."
Gail Halvorsen then stood up - Mr. Gail Halvorsen, a 77-year old
"Thank you, Sir, " said Clinton.
Granted, Gail is also a woman's name - but wouldn't one think that
our President would check this prior to making the announcement?
(source for quote: The New York Post, May 15, 1998)
President Clinton was interviewed on January 21, 1998 by Jim Lehrer on his
alleged affair with a Whitehouse intern and subsequent alleged subornation
of her perjury. Clinton said, "I'm just trying to suppress my natural
impulses and get back to work."
And what *specific* natural impulses would those be? Hmmmm......
"...with barely 700 days left in the 20th century..."
President Clinton during his State of the Union address, January 27,
Ummm.....the 20th century ends on December 31,
2000. That is nearly
three years away from January 27, 1998! Yes everyone - the
year 2000 and the beginning of the 21st century are two
different things. Was there a year zero? No! We start the
century on year ONE - and in this case it would be 2001!
"There are a lot of very brilliant people who believe that the
nation-state is fast becoming a relic of the past,"
- President Clinton, New York Times, November 25, 1997
In January 1994 Clinton made a trip to Europe. At that time there was
some friction between the European leaders and the U.S. about troop deployments
in Bosnia. While in Belgium, the European leaders and Clinton had a
cocktail party. It was covered by CNN. On their 3:00PM (CST) broadcast,
CNN with Frank Cezno showed a clip of the party. It showed Clinton
talking to Helmut Kohl and saying, "I was thinking of you last night,
Helmut, because I watched the sumo wrestling on television."
Is Bill Clinton saying the leader of unified
Germany looks like a sumo wrestler?
Thanks to Paul K. for this!

a 12 year affair with Gennifer Flowers..."They've been exposed as the trash they are"

that he had an affair with Gennifer Flowers
"When I was a younger man and had a life," stated Clinton,
"I owned an El Camino pickup in the '70s. It was
a real sort of Southern deal. I had Astroturf in the back. You don't
want to know why, but I did."

No Mr. President, really....we WANT to know what the Astroturf was
In the first debate Clinton told us:
"And the deficit has come down for four years in a row for the first time
since before the Civl War. I meant to say since before World War II.
But maybe it should be since before the Civil War."
The last time was actually 1944-1947 followed by a year of surplus

In his speech to the Fraternal Order of Police in Cincinnati, OH during
the 1996 election, President Clinton bragged on the strong Ohio
economy. However, he forgot to tell the audience that at the time Ohio
had a Republican Governor, top five State officials were all
Republicans, both the State House and Senate were controlled by
Republicans, a Republican US Senator and 13 of 19 US Representatives
Thank you Mr. President for the strong endorsement of Republican
principles and programs!
Clinton quotes the Bible - incorrectly.
Oct 1994 Remarks made at the signing of the peace treaty between Israel
and Jordan. "Your Majesty; Mr Prime Minister, here in the Rift Valley
you have bridged the tragic rift that separated your people too long.
Here in this region, which is home of not only both of your faiths, but
mine, I say, blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall inherit the
If Bill is going to quote the bible, perhaps he should do it
correctly! Here is the CORRECT quote:
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the Earth.
"Thanks for the poncho."
President Clinton said this when he was presented
with the Romanian tri-color flag during his visit in July. The
flag did have a head-sized hole in the middle...
But flags with the centers ripped out are the norm in Romania
these days. With holes where the hated communist emblem
used to be, such flags symbolize the 1989 anti-Communist
revolt that led to the establishment of democracy. Shouldn't
our President KNOW this??

Wait a minute... George Bush (1988, 1992), Ross
Perot (1992, 1996), and Phil Gramm (1996) - all Texans who recently ran
for the presidency. (George Bush moved to TX in 1948 after graduating from Yale,
founded an oil company in 1953, ran for the Senate in 1964, elected to the
House in 1966, 1968 and ran for Senate in 1970. So, except for the 10
years (1970-1980), Bush was a Texan since 1948.)

As a candidate in 1992, Bill Clinton blasted Bush administration
standards of behavior and pledged to conduct "the most ethical
administration in the history of the Republic."
In the 96 campaign before the 2nd debate that everyone was saying Dole
was going to get rough on Clinton. Clinton was in Louisville,KY getting
a Louisville Slugger baseball bat and remarked while swinging it " from
what I have been hearing I might need to use this in the next debate"
pretty funny I thought. Hope you don't think Bill was going to whack

The following quotes are NOT REAL QUOTES. I am
posting them here because I have seen them listed as authentic quotes
places. (I even made that mistake at first)
President Clinton learned there were
100,000 cattle guards in Colorado. Since Clinton was so upset with
ranchers' protests over his grazing policies, he told U.S. Secretary
of Interior Bruce Babbitt to fire half the cattle guards immediately.
Before Babbitt could proceed with the President's wishes, Colorado
representative Pat Schroeder intervened with a request that before any
were fired, they would be given six months of retraining. Clinton
obviously did not know that a cattle guard is a bunch of parallel pipes
that cattle will not cross because they can't walk on pipes.
