1. Thanks for the link! Thom Hartmann played a lot of clips from it,
and I was just going to post here asking if anyone had a link to the whole speech.

I am constantly amazed at the logic BC always uses in his speeches! Hmmm, mabe because the current residentin the WH never uses ANY!

2. You got that right! It was so refreshing listening to Bill...
I had tears in my eyes!

My husband was listening to Thom Hartmann at work and heard the speech. He called me and told me about the link. I love Thom's program....it's my favorite.

4. I'm listening now. I don't pray often, and I always feel guilty asking
for favors all the time, but "Dear God, PLEASE send us another intelligent President!"

10. Thom, Randi, and Malloy.
Would love to see a debate between these 3 and 3 from the right.

9. that speech President Clinton made was
grand. It made more sense than anything I have heard in about 5 years. I wish he could make the same speech on MSM some night during prime time. I guess the rethugs would laugh it away, but I sure wish others could hear it.

11. Found a few comments from the speech. Can't find transcript.
Clinton's remarks were lengthy, but although he spoke for a long time, he did not mince words. He was razor sharp and harshly critical of the Bush administration.

Among his comments:

"Whatever your position was in the beginning, no Democrat is responsible. It is very important that this issue alone not be allowed to divide the Democrats."

Clinton also noted that the mission in Afghanistan is in trouble and has been largely forgotten.

"Everywhere I go in the world people are thinking about this . Why are we resisting it? Why are we giving massive subsidies to the oil companies?"

On climate change: "The glaciers are melting, and if you put that with deforestation and erosion of topsoil, we are facing a serious international security crisis if we don't deal with this."

On the environment: "You must reelect Senator Maria Cantwell because she is our leader on this issue and we must lead."

On our nation's treasury: "Spending. These guys make me look like Scrooge. I always knew the Democrats were the fiscally responsible party, but theyve removed all doubt."

On tax cuts for the wealthy: "Were not cutting taxes. Were deferring them and putting them on our kids."

On healthcare: "We spend 16% of our income on healthcare. No other rich country spends more than 11%...They want to increase the amount of personal risk on individuals and make it even worse."

On Republican ideology: "Their great value is to concentrate wealth and power."

14. Just finished listening to it and it would be nice if the
*cough* Liberal *cough* media would have broadcast this speech instead of any of Pinhead's speeches. It just might wake up enough of the kool aid drinkers to a better way of doing things then what their idiot pResident has embarked on these past 6 years. I know they don't like Clinton, but surely even they can see just how fucked up everything is now. Ah :wtf: am I thinking? :banghead:
