Bill Lied; the Mission Died

George H.W. Bush: I Did Not Agree to Mission With Bill

Former President George H.W. Bush is taking issue with statements made by Bill Clinton Monday that the duo would embark on a mission of diplomacy around the world if his wife is elected president.

Clinton reportedly made the statements in South Carolina, saying he and Bush would spread the message that “America is open for business and cooperation again,” implying that the former president would need to swoop in to repair diplomatic damage wrought by his son.

But George H.W. Bush’s Chief of Staff Jean Becker released a statement Tuesday saying he and Clinton have made no such plans - even though the two have grown close through charity work since their 1992 presidential election match up.

“Former President Bush wholeheartedly supports the president of the United States, including his foreign policy. He has never discussed an ‘around -the-world mission’ with either former President Bill Clinton or Sen. Clinton, nor does he think such a mission is warranted since he is proud of the role America continues to play around the world as the beacon of home for freedom and democracy,” Becker said. “President Bush is excited about several of the excellent Republican candidates running for President, and looks forward to supporting their candidacy once the Republican nominee is determined.”

Clinton’s comments were just his latest candid assessment of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS Friday, Clinton played down expectations for his wife’s performance in the Iowa caucuses, saying it is a “miracle” she even has a chance in that state.

He also criticized rival Barack Obama as being too inexperienced to run for president and said voters would be taking a risk with him in the White House.

Good evening Donal, how are you? Well, it seems as if ol' Bill has finally inhaled. Where in the world he ever got this idea from I'd like to know. I'm sure, at this moment Hillary swatting at him with a rolling pin and shouting'' I give the orders here, not you''! J'Mac.

So el Zippermeister is at it again! Does this syphilitic putz EVER get sick of telling lies!? This was a BIG one! We all know that he was hoping Bush the Elder would keep quiet about this lie because he's such a class act that he wouldn't want to call another former President a liar.

Tyhank G-d the old President was on top of this lie.

BTW I think the elder Bush will be an incredible asset on the campaign trail. He is very highly regarded as an outstanding, moral family man. I got to shake his hand and say hello during the 2004 campaign here in Jax. He's a great guy.

I cannot believe how arrogant Bill Clinton is. He actually is so full of himself that he would think Bush, Sr. agrees with him and is against what his son has done as President???? Good grief!

Bush senior has done what former president's have traditionally done, and that is take up the elder 'statesman' role. Be available to speak privately, but in public to behave as gentlemen and zip the lip!
clinton, since his heart surgery, has not been the same. I have spoken with a friend who knows people who have undergone the same surgery...in a small percentage, too much oxygen is used and the 'governor' or 'inhibitor' in the brain is damaged. They say whatever comes to mind with no stopping and thinking first!
I think the velcro zipper is just blurting out what he is thinking...another effect, which probably makes him grouchy, is the inabilities that crop up...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!
