WATCH: Bill Clinton Just Said Something Big Obama Won’t Say About Islam…Gutfeld Goes Off

Clinton

It’s certainly reasonable to wonder why he said it — he felt compelled to speak the truth, he was talking as a surrogate for Hillary as she approaches go-time for a presidential run, or maybe he couldn’t resist taking one of his occasional well-aimed shots at Barack Obama.

For whatever reason, Bill Clinton said something you don’t hear from the current administration about radical Islam and its brutal practices that represent “the world’s greatest double standard.”

The former president took the occasion of his appearance on the comedy show “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to lay out a compelling case that intolerant Islamists demand tolerance from all-too-submissive Western societies.

On Fox News‘ “The Five,” Greg Gutfeld vigorously applauded Clinton’s truth-telling, cheering the former president for “saying publicly what wimps say privately” in a way that made him sound like “a right-wing extremist.”

Look What Just Happened With The Woman In This Clinton Photo…And How Nixon Is In The Mix

Bill Clinton

Last week, Western Journalism reported on the social media storm that raged with gale-force winds of Twitter curiosity about that viral photo of a smiling Bill Clinton happily clutching the arm of a young woman in red.

The young woman apparently enjoying her proximity to the former president in the viral pic is Andrea Catsimatidis, the 24-year-old daughter of the billionaire grocer and failed NYC mayoral candidate.

“New York’s Catsimatidis family has long been close with Bill and Hillary Clinton,” notes a post at FreeBeacon.com.

However, this eye-opening photo making the rounds on social media has many wondering how close Bill Clinton is to the daughter of John Catsimatidis, considered by many to be the grocery store king of the Big Apple.

Curiously, within hours of her picture with Slick Willy going viral, Andrea filed for divorce from her husband of three years, Christopher Cox — Christopher Nixon Cox, President Richard Nixon’s grandson.

As the New York Post recounts, the smiling couple was photographed just last year touring The Great Wall in commemoration of President Nixon’s groundbreaking 1972 China trip.

And with the news of the pending breakup of the marriage, Twitter once again lights up with comments and questions:


For the record, there is no indication in any official document or statement from Andrea Catsimatidis, Christopher Nixon Cox, or their families that Bill Clinton had anything to do with the pending divorce.

With Just 7 Revealing Words, Michelle Obama Lowers Herself To Slick Willy Status

Michelle

Twenty years ago, when Bill Clinton was trying to distinguish himself as the “cool” candidate for president, he told an MTV audience about his intimate undergarments. You may remember the moment when a teenage girl asked, “Is it boxers or briefs?”

Here was a chance for real, meaningful insight into the lifestyle of America’s first-ever presidential contender to admit to smoking marijuana. Clinton’s answer, “Usually briefs.”

Now, two decades later, We the People are enlightened once again about the intimate fashion/comfort habits of an occupant of the White House. And for many, it may fall into the category of TMI — Too Much Information.

For others, what Michelle Obama revealed this week could qualify as a questionable disclosure for the First Lady of the United States. (It’s certainly hard, if not impossible, to imagine that Laura Bush would say such a thing.)

As we learn from bizpacreview.com:

Speaking at the White House Fashion Education Workshop Wednesday, Michelle Obama may have revealed a little more about her choice of undergarments than most would like to know.

The event was geared toward young people interested in the fashion industry, so the first lady used Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx, as an example of how perseverance pays off.

Ms. Obama proceeded to tell the youthful gathering how Sara Blakely never gave up on her dream of producing form-fitting women’s undergarments intended to make the wearer look more slim and shapely. That dream became a very successful reality, said Michelle Obama, when Blakely founded what is now a multi-billion dollar company, Spanx.

Then, the First Lady let all the world know with a joyful 7-word exclamation, “And we all wear them – with pride!”

As a post on conservativetribune.com wryly observes:

How fitting that Obama should lift up a company whose product is designed for one thing and one thing only — to hide the truth.

Retiring Dem Puts Hillary At Scene Of The Crime: ‘Fingerprints Are All Over’ ObamaCare

harkin

Iowa Democrats gathered this past weekend for Senator Tom Harkin’s 37th annual, and final, Steak Fry fundraiser featuring former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  The crowd of 5,000 cheered for Clinton while wearing “Ready for Hillary” buttons.  During Senator Harkin’s speech, he tied Hillary directly to ObamaCare by telling the crowd that her fingerprints were all over that legislation.

“One of things that Hillary always worked on was advancing this concept, this idea, that healthcare should be a right and not a privilege in this country.  And so, Hillary was not there when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, she, of course, was Secretary of State.  But I want you all to know, that her fingerprints are all over that legislation.  It would not have happened but for her strenuous advocacy in that committee all those years she was there to get a healthcare bill passed in Congress.”

If Hillary was looking to distance herself from Obama, the retiring five-term Iowa Senator just put her at the “scene of the crime.”

Meet The President Who Is Uninterested In Other People

Some time ago, I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani.

If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, and suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before.

If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you disagreed; he would ask pointed questions and pepper you with objections; he would tell you that you are wrong on the facts and wrong on the law, and that you needed to admit you were utterly mistaken.

The difference is partly a matter of personality and temperament, and of regional style: Southern affability, New York prickliness.

But there’s also an underlying similarity. Both Clinton and Giuliani are always curious about what other people think, determined to probe beneath the surface to understand what they really care about, sensitive to find areas of both agreement and disagreement.

They’re good at reading people, an essential quality for an executive and especially for a president. Recent presidents have had that quality in varying degrees.

Clinton, as indicated, has an immense desire to win people over. Daniel Halper’s bestselling “Clinton, Inc.,” shows how he went about winning the affection and respect of the Bush family.

The two Presidents George Bush, aware that presidents have the greatest leeway in foreign affairs, both devoted immense psychic energy in establishing relationships with foreign leaders.

George W. Bush admits in his memoir “Decision Points” that he initially misjudged Vladimir Putin. But he established close personal rapport with leaders from wildly different backgrounds, from British Prime Minister Tony Blair to Brazilian President Lula da Silva.

As for George H. W. Bush, just about everyone now recognizes the brilliance of his diplomacy in response to the invasion of Iraq and the breakup of the Soviet Union. That diplomacy depended on shrewd reading and handling of literally dozens of foreign leaders.

The seemingly aloof Ronald Reagan developed his capacity to understand negotiating partners, as his definitive biographer Lou Cannon made clear, when he was president of the Screen Actors Guild negotiating with studio bosses.

Reagan deployed that ability in establishing productive relations with allies such as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, with whom he was by no means always in agreement, and with adversaries such as Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, whose character, strengths, and weaknesses he shrewdly assessed.

The ability to read other people comes more easily if you’re interested in others, curious to learn what makes them tick. It comes harder or not at all if you’re transfixed with your image of yourself.

Which seems to be the case with Barack Obama. Not only is he not much interested in the details of public policy, as Jay Cost argues persuasively in a recent article for the Weekly Standard. He is also, as even his admirers concede, not much inclined to schmooze with other politicians, even his fellow Democrats.
