Bill Clinton Meets with the UK Team

As the news trickles out, today seems to be becoming “All Clinton Everything” here. The latest is this post from John Calipari about the team’s visit today with Bill Clinton. In it, he talks about Clinton meeting with the team, noting how much Calipari has aged and giving this quote about UK and the country:

“Problems in the world and problems in the United States can only be solved by teamwork. That’s it. This team has taught us the lesson that the higher the mountain, the more the team must be connected.”

All in all, it is a good read from John Calipari and the picture is notable as it may be the first time I have ever seen the entire set of players smiling together in one picture. Happy times for all

    The only bad thing about being a wildcat fan is that there are so many idiots that are also in the BBN. I guess the cats transcend all these issues that we as citizens have no way of impacting at all. Some would say that we should vote these scumbags out of office. In reality, all the choices we have are between a giant douche and a turd sammich.

    No question the greatest politician of his generation.
    As someone who did read the Starr Report, I would agree with George Will’s assessment about Clinton:
    Not the worst President ever, but no doubt the worst person to have ever been President.

    Also, his weakness in Somalia led to…guess.
    His firing cruise missiles at OBL and doing nothing else led to….guess
    His so-called “peace dividend” by reducing the Armed Services and the CIA led to…guess.

    Hey Beavis, you pal Butthead (aka George W. Bush) inherited a hefty surplus and left us with the debt. Or do you get your propaganda from Rush and FOX, which insulated you from the years 2000-2008?

    50. Just put tax rates where they were when Reagan was in office and nationalize the health care industry (like the rest of the world has already done) and we’re in great shape. Seriously, that’s all it would take.

    46 – Calling people pussies because they called you out for being abusive to what you ignorantly thought was ignorance? Let me put it to you another way: you called someone dumb because you were unaware of the word impeach as stated by the US Constitution, and then called everyone “pussies” for calling you on the irony of this. And then your only argument was, what? That the impeachment was a political stunt by the Republicans? That Clinton presided over a peaceful era of economic growth? No, you called two other presidents “POS.” How old are you?

    Come on folks, Clinton inherited a revived economy from the 12 prosperous years of Reagan/Bush, who, by the way, turned around the worst economy since the great depression. That economy was authored by Jimmy Carter, the worst president in the history of the country. Reagan turned things around by drastically lowering taxes across the board and allowing companies to invest their money in technology and employees. By the time Clinton had left office, his persistent tax raising had drained the economy of any momentum, and Bush 43 inherited a sluggish economy that only got more difficult with the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Yet, remarkably, Bush 43 managed to lower taxes and revive the economy which produced unemployment rates in the mid 4s for a great deal of his presidency, despite an uncooperative Democratic Congress. Now, we get a president who has revived the policies of the Carter and Clinton eras, and look where we are – social policies draining the economy, raised taxes, uncontrolled socialism and unemployment rates near 10%. Now you tell me who’s good for the country? I don’t understand why more people don’t see it…

    63 – The question before us now: Is Romney going to be the next Reagan and pull this country out of the slump so kids graduating from college can find a job. Seen the news on that lately? The unemployment rate for college grads is like 50%…..it’s crazy.

    Even Bill knew better than to put liberal policies ahead of a thriving economy.

    63…you need to go to work for foxnews, as you have quite a knack for spinning bs…republicans start economic messes with big spending and de-regulation, and then the dems have to bail us out again…a vicious cycle. Wait and see, Obama’s 2nd term will see huge gains…anybody that says that Clinton’s presidency was not a success is either a master spinster or complete moron.

    63 Fox views did a great job on you. Reagan raised taxes 11 times while he was in office. This trickle down economy that only seems to trickle up was part of his doing too. As for Clinton not declaring war every time something happened might be why they waited until Bush was in, got the exact response they wanted.
