About the book:
Instead, he (the author) views Clinton as an insecure, needy man whose frequent shifts in direction and self-destructive behavior reflected not cunning but utter lack of self-control. He also sees Clinton as growing in strength, self-confidence and wisdom over his eight years in office, and praises his courage in responding to the humanitarian crisis in Kosovo. On terrorism, Harris offers a mixed verdict, crediting Clinton with recognizing the growing threat posed by al-Qaeda and expanding U.S. efforts against it while acknowledging the inadequacy of those efforts. 16 pages of photos not seen by PW.
Quotes from the book:
--Bill Clinton was so upset that his weight-loss regimen in 2000 was not working that he made his aides release a bogus number after his annual Navy physical to make him five pounds lighter. (pg. 394)
--Hillary taunted her husband's aides as being wimps by not fighting hard enough on Whitewater - "JFK had real men in his White House!" (pg. 108)
--Tipper Gore was so disgusted in 2000 with Bill and Hillary that she stayed cloistered in a holding room instead of going to a New York reception with major Democratic fund-raisers where the Clintons would be. "No, I'm not doing it," she snapped to an aide. "I'm not going out there with that man."
--The first conversation between Clinton and Gore after the Lewinsky story broke. Clinton is shouting at Gore, "This is a fu*king coup d'etat!" Gore just stared back blankly. (pg 313)
--Former White House counter-terrorism chief Richard Clarke on the record hitting Clinton for not having the guts to fire FBI director Louis Freeh, who Clarke called a major obstacle on anti-terrorism policy. "He should have just fired Freeh and taken the sh*t it would have caused." (pg. 408)
Hat tip: Drudge Report.
Of course, you would believe in the fake Bush memo and how Bush "lied" (Clinton would by lying as well about the same intelligence that President G.W. Bush received) but not this? So, that's how a Liberal mind works? But seeing how he messed up with the whole Lewinsky affair, his action alone has given us a glimpse of Clinton's mind and self-destructive (and inadequacies) behaviors.
Let the back-peddling and scorn begin from the Clintons. How much of this is true? And how much of this is false? Really, that's up to you to decide and believe (or deny).
