Bill Clinton Refuses To Criticize Edward Snowden, Says Next President Should Be A Woman

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Lately Bill Clinton has not been doing the president many favors. First, the "is" definition-challenged former president had some harsh words about Obamacare, and most recently in an overnight question-and-answer session before a standing-room-only crowd in a Beijing hotel ballroom, Clinton who was in Beijing for meetings with China’s President Xi Jinping as well as to promote the work of his New York-based philanthropic organisation, the Clinton Foundation, while withholding comments on Obama - whose approval rating has plunged to an all time low - refused to criticise Edward Snowden. Instead he said he believed it was "perfectly legitimate" for the US government to search “big data pools… to see if there are patterns of communication between certain numbers or sites and others known to be in the possession of terrorist groups”. But he went on, via AFP: “The question is when, if ever, is the government justified in going beyond the patterns to listen to telephone calls, read emails, read text messages, and who’s supposed to decide that? Mr Snowden obviously thought that it was excessive.

He added:

The fact that Snowden was able to receive a top-secret security clearance despite having only been a contractor for several months “made me think that we are on the verge of having the worst of all worlds: We’ll have no security and no privacy”, Clinton added.

 

“I think the US and China and everybody else, we’re going to have to be more upfront with each other and probably with our own people about what it is we’re looking for and listening to,” he said.

Of course, it is unlikely that anything will change, much to the detriment of US companies with international operations such as Cisco, whose revenues are projected to tumble in big part due to the blowback resulting from the Snowden revelations. Whether this will be a limited, one-time event remains to be seen.

More amusingly, among Clinton's other comments was his speculation on the gender of the next US president.

Former US president Bill Clinton hopes there will be a woman in the White House in his lifetime and will support his wife Hillary in whatever she decides to do, he told a Chinese audience on Monday.

 

Hillary, who earlier this year stepped down as US secretary of state, has not yet said whether she plans another presidential run after her failed 2008 bid for the Democratic nomination.

 

“I hope we have a woman president in my lifetime, and I think it would be a good thing for the world as well as for America,” Clinton said at a conference organised by the respected Chinese financial magazine Caijing.

 

“But I do not know if she’s going to run, and there is no such thing as a sure thing in politics,” he added.

 

In a question-and-answer session before a standing-room-only crowd in a Beijing hotel ballroom, Clinton, who was president from 1993 to 2001, was asked whether he envisages becoming a “first husband” in the future.

 

“You know, if I knew the answer to that, I couldn’t say,” he responded. “But I can give you an honest answer: I have no idea.”

 

He called his wife “the ablest public servant I have ever worked with” and said that he would support her whatever decision she makes on a White House run.

 

“If that’s what she wants to do, I will support her,” Clinton said. “But if she decides for whatever reason she doesn’t, I will support that.”

 

“It’s very interesting for us; we still feel young and we still feel healthy,” he added, noting that compared with several decades ago, he believes his wife now is “less motivated… by a fear of failure”.

Naturally, it would only be logical that the first female Fed chair be followed by the first female president. One can only hope, however, that in both cases it is not some gender quota driving the choice but the candidate with the best credentials. Then again, considering the current sorry state of the US economy, one wonders what difference does it make just who the next US president will be.

Why should Americans vote for anybody anymore?  It's just used as implied consent for whoever wins to do whatever they want against our will and against the Constitution.  99% of the people who want to win the "pageant" and be some kind of political being are narcissistic, sociopathic, criminal scum. 

Don't vote for anybody.  If Americans quit voting then none of those scumbags could hold a position of power over us.

Well, Overm, I don't have proof that Chelsea is VC's kid, just like I don't have proof that Cheney and Bush were behind the bombing and killing of 3300 of our fellow citizens on 9/11. I can promise you thaty virtually nobody outside the Clinton/Foster circle of associates has the faintest clue what the real story was. What I can vouch for is that governments kill people all the time- Governments run by the likes of_______________(plug in the name of ANY politician/General/CEO/Pope). They do NOT tolerate dissent within the ranks.  This has been going on for so long that any criticism of particular players utterly misses the point. 

My point is, that if you are going to have a debate that leads to creative solution-making, then you have to stick with the Di/Phi Rulebook. Generally speaking, the first person to start calling names is declared the loser, as they have run out of rational or logical arguments.

I'm not terribly fond of Billary either, but I seem to recall that Americans had jobs and extra spending money when he was in office (as well as a huge surplus in the Treasury). Kindly inform me what the fucking Right has done for anyone besides the Kochj fuckheads and Wall Street (yeah, I'm calling names).

You're either really naive or stupid, either way you're pissing me off. Go get smart. Shut your stupid mouth and listen more.

Name calling doesn't imply anything other than the person wanted to call you a name. You're starting off with illogical noise and you're calm about it and that lends validity to your ignorance?

Exactly.  Team Red's Reagan worship is vomit-inducing, and that is wording it kindly.  Now compared to the last 2 inhabitants of the WH, Reagan (even in his 2nd term when the 1st stages of Alzheimer's were beginning to show) was the picture of competence but that is lowering standards to abysmal levels.  All one needs to understand Reagan is here:

I haven't had a need to call you out on what you say, but...

Bitch about Hillary, but there is no fucking way that the astrologist-wannabe Nancy could ever even think of playing the role of Secretary of State...

Being Ronnie's fluffer and jelly bean peeler doesn't impress me... 

In fact there is not a single asshat of any political stripe here at the Hedge who could even pretend with a straight face that they could fill the shoes of the Secretary of State... They would get eaten up and spat out faster than you say HFT....

No, I am questioning the policies of both sides, team Red gets the prize though for being the worst....

Slick Willie screwed the pooch with the CFTC and Glass Steagal...

He also got a huge one time boost on the budget from Cap Gains from that "internet thingie"....

And he benefited from failing oil prices which in real terms (all time) bottomed in 1998....

Chelsea wouldn't roll your fat corpse into a nearby shallow grave. But you would probably donate to her campaign so you can feel progressive and good about yourself because you aren't "sexist". At least that's what you tell yourself. I think you are just desperate to get female attention even if it means being a bitch so you can speak the language. Women don't like fags.

Unc, I appreciate where you're coming from. I went down-arrow hunting in the briar patch this mawnin' and caught me some Nazxis! You can't really get the real ones anymore - so you have to hunt the ones that bred with Marxists, hence, Nazxis. But you know how it is-that ole definition of insanity, 'bout doing the same ole thing over and over and expecting something different...well, neither the right nor the left in this country are anything except fucking insane. Not one new or original idea among the lot, and no contrition either: some, ah... hist'ry:

Somewhere back in the good ole days, before Johnson (BJ), the Right killed a Catholic in order to keep him from empowering and educating the poor. Then That Big Texan came along and had to be persuaded to get us out of Vietnam through mass riots and civil disobedience and stuff. That was about the time the National Guard murdered some university students in cold blood, which led to more riots and mess. Well, it didn't take the pollsters long to tell the Big Cheeses that this sort of thing didn't even go down well with Conservatives, and so they invented welfare as a cheaper alternative to civil war.

Trubble was, nobody saw the Cocaine Generation coming until their brains were all fried - TV, MTV, EmptyVee and the Interwebs. People were so stupid by the time RayGun got finished that they actually believed whatever their TV told 'em without even doing basic DD on any of it, and before long the Banksters seized control of everything by convincing the Conservatives that Nazis were great and Liberals were stoopid. Now its so bad that the very folks who invented this latest economic crisis and put all these folks into poverty blame the poverty-stricken for their own misdeeds. Instead of 'fessing up to their own mistakes, they hubricate along, threatening ennyone who disagrees with 'em. Too bad they don't see the writing on the wall - which is that bitching is great, but that's all it is until somebody has a better idea. Since it is pretty clear by now that neither the Nazis nor the Liberals have a fucking clue about how to do anything but damn each other, seems to me that we either have a conversation or we go ahead and run headlong down the path to hell. 

"Cuz there's one message that this BlackJewIrishBrudda has for all y'all fuckup NeoLiberal Nazis - you lot ain't gettin' my country without a fight. I don't mind if y'all live here, but don't kid yourselves that Conservatives are the only folks who fought, bled and died for the USA. We'uns pay taxes, we work for a living. Many of us get along just fine without the dole, which is more than I can say for the Conservative wannabes that live in trailer parks and bitch about everyone else. And as for all y'all who tanked me this mawnin'-thanks! Now I know who you is...

The data strongly suggest that is color is major role...

For example compare how Kerry, Clinton and Gore did in the same Red states....

There were many polls with a question along the lines, "Are you ready for a Black President?" and the numbers were illuminating, something like 20% said they were not, significantly less than for a woman and other demographics, e.g. Mormon....

What's wrong with having someone like you to represent you? Isn't that the liberal democracy promise?

The way it works in Liberaldom: If blacks, jews, mexicans, chinese, etc., want a representative from their tribe, then that is good, according to libtards. However, if whites want the same thing, then they are haters, racists, naziswhowanttokillsixmillionsjews, etc.

Liberals are liar, murderers, and thieves and just need to STFU.

Obama, the warmonger (Syria), the advocate for unrestrained domestic surveillance programs, the murderer of U.S. Citizens, has done well in his continuation of GWB's policies.

Sure he might hold different (meaningless) viewpoints on the wedge issues, but that's all part of the show. If you look close enough, there really is not much meaningful policy change from administration to administration (at least the last four), except for superficial red meat tossed to the masses.

I am not going to argue as you are basically correct...

But anyone inheriting the shitshow that culminated in 2008 was a doomed puppy. You don't fix decades of structural imbalances by trying to govern from the middle. Obama was a centrist elected when real change was required, assuming that real change was even possible...

I will say that he has not been as intellectually bankrupt as W...

Talk about damning with faint praise....
