This was a man that I campaigned for relentlessly, endured sexual harassment from Jesse Jackson staffers and voted for twice. From the moment he played the saxophone on the Arsenio Hall Show, I was in love. I was also a twenty something liberal, lukewarm in her support of previous candidate Mike Dukakis and happy to vote for someone who gave her hope for change.
You see at the time I was voting with my heart not my head. Liberalism is a low-yielding farm but it employs minorities and that was all I cared about. Republicans help the rich. Democrats help the poor. Got it.
Because I was there once, I understand the young people who voted for Obama. Kids like Kool Aid. It was the other demographic of seniors and middle aged that I did not understand. Kids need a rockstar candidate and one decade’s rock star does not necessarily translate into another decades rock star as Bill Clinton soon learned when he was campaigning for his wife presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.
(Shudder) I hated that primary. That was when conversations about hatred and racism began to get ugly.
We were really hoping the race and hate monger cards would retire to the deck after the 2008 primary. Unfortunately, they never did. The cards continue to be played with more vitriol than ever, especially when it comes to the Tea Party movement.
From Obama, Biden, Gibbs, Pelosi, Reid and MSNBC, I would expect this sort of rumor mill talk.
From Bill Clinton, I would not.
Oh, Big Dawg. Tea Party rhetoric leads to Timothy McVeigh-ish domestic terrorism acts of epic proportions? NO. Not you BC. You President Clinton, of all people who was dragged through the Kool Aid flavored mud of Obama Island during the 2008 Democratic Primary along with your wife “Bros before Hoes“ Hillary and daughter “Pimping for Hillary“ Chelsea, I would think that you would be more open minded concerning the Tea Partiers.
Perhaps our former president has had a temporary memory lapse. He has not yet divorced himself from the liberal right to hype.
Allow me to kick Mr. Clinton back to reality.
Ah, see how lovingly demonstrative the left can be? Didn’t you just feel the love for Hillary? Not one drop of hatred in the entire leftist bunch. No dreadful “fringe” people. And of course, PUMAs were embraced by all.
Listen up liberals!!! We all know the real deal. Remember I used to be one of you, so let’s not EVEN go there. I know the tricks in your government issued feed bags. Please stop the madness.
The question remains whether or not Bill Clinton actually believes his charge that the Tea Party can incite acts of domestic terrorism?
Really now, does this look like a potential Timothy McVeigh to you?
I am thinking (hoping…praying) a firm NO. Hopefully he just chose the wrong words to show support for the Democrats. Clinton could also simply say nothing but then again that has never been his strong suit.
Yes I still have a soft spot for the Big Dawg but I will not let him get away with anything just because I have always admired him. I felt compelled to write this post because I truly am disappointed in his words concerning the Tea Party movement, especially when the shoe and the navy blue Gap dress have been on the other foot.

Our prayers are with the families of the Oklahoma Bombing on this anniversary of an act of terror that never should have been. God Bless America.
