It’s All About Bill

Bill Clinton warns Democrats not to lightly dismiss gun owners and the people who represent them. I think it is sage advice, but for Clinton it is also self-serving. I imagine Bill and Hillary would still like to be the patriarchs of the Democratic Party, and Obama is a threat to that. If Obama gets his ass handed to him, he can smugly say “I told you.” Of course, he still has choice words for NRA:

Clinton also recalled threatening to veto a bill as Arkansas governor that would have prevented the city of Little Rock from instituting an assault weapons ban.

Clinton said that an National Rifle Association lobbyist threatened him over his veto in the state house, saying that the group would cause problems for his upcoming presidential campaign in rural states like Texas.

“Right there in the lobby,” Clinton said. “They thought they could talk to governors that way.”

“I knew I was getting older when I didn’t hit him,” Clinton said. Clinton recalls telling the NRA lobbyist, “If that’s the way you feel, you get your gun, I’ll get my gun and I’ll see you in Texas.”

Why are anti-gun people so violent? And why can’t we talk to governors that way? A governor is not a king. He serves the people.

    Even better:

    “Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said.

    [...]

    “A lot of these people … all they’ve got is their hunting and their fishing,” he told the Democratic financiers. “Or they’re living in a place where they don’t have much police presence. Or they’ve been listening to this stuff for so long that they believe it all.”

    Gee, thanks for not patronizing us, Bill. What a snob!

      That part bothered me the most. It’s really disturbing how they think they’re in another class.

    I love tough guy career politicians. It takes a big man to threaten a face-punching while backed up by armed state troopers.

    Bram, I’ve been the target of the big man crap from a local incumbent turned unemployed (during his last election try) and over here it wasnt state troopers, it was union guys.

    • Harold says:

      Was it union guys before or after he got turned out of office?

      Also, was he in an executive or legislative position, and if the latter, was it one of the very top ones?

    HE serviced the people.

    Amazing how he has become the dems poster boy. I guess the dems can’t remember what a lying sack he is because they have their heads shoved to far up to see the light.

    The week before in Vegas we was touting the 10rd mag. I think he realized that if things continue this way, Hillary won’t be next in the WH unless the dems get away with throwing that election too. Well I guess she might be the leader of part of the country anyway.

    So are some of the states going to succeed, or should we just kick NY and CA out?
