PRESS: We're almost out of time, but I want to ask you just a quick question. I was stunned, frankly, to see you say that the House was correct in impeaching Bill Clinton last year, and the Senate should have convicted him.

Ralph, do you really believe that, or do you just hate Bill Clinton so much that you would take any channel to get him out of the White House?

NADER: Do you know any other president that has morally disgraced the status of the White House, No. 1, and committed perjury, No. 2, as judicially determined? And he's an officer of the court as an attorney?

I mean, you know, what's the standard for impeachment?

PRESS: Well, I would argue that that's not the standard, but we're out of time, Mr. Ralph Nader, Green Party candidate for president. Thank you for joining us, and good luck.

NADER: Thank you.

Make that a big idiot.

I never knew Ralph felt that way. Go Ralph Go--and take some of Gorp's votes as you do.

I have a hard time watching him but alas thanks to the skills Mary Matalin has picked up around the house "tangoing" with her hubby she manages to make Press look like the idiot most of us know him to be.

As for Nader speaking the truth, well that is what you will get with Mr. Nader, he's a tad green for me but strikes me as an honorable man.

Happy 4th of July to you all, even you Bill Press, you pinko!

They used to say that clinton used Perot to take away votes from Bush, well, let's hope Nader takes away votes from Gore! Wouldn't that be a great irony?

Nader's writings are full of junk science. He does no research as far as one can tell. His first book "Unsafe at any Speed" should have been laughed out of publication but the press like him. He's just loonier than Gore so the Green crowd like him.

I'll second that. I'd cringe at the thought of him being president, but he is an honest and honorable man. I just disagree with most everything he stands for.

I saw that little conversation between Nader and Press. He is a pathetic wasteland! I loved Nader's answer to the clinton butt-boy! Bill Press, Gene Lyons, Joe Conason, Chris Lehane and Eleanor Clift should be dumped on a desert island somewhere. They are the worst of the worst - oh, add Paul Begala to that list! UGH!!!!

Bill Press is a kool-aid drinking Clintonista so therefore has no class, dignity, or credibility. Bill Press has decided to spend his career as a bent-over, ankle-grabbing sychophant to his master. He is effectively a man without a country; living in a country that reveres the thing that he hates the most - freedom.

Bill Press used to be known in California as "Chairman Bill" for the status he held in the state's Democrat machine.

But a thought...notice you never see Bill Press and Al Hunt at the same place at the same time??

kAcknor Sez:

Bill Press is an idiot

Having grown up in Southern California in the 1960's I watched Bill Press when he was a "Editorialist" for a local TV station. It was a time when people actually attempted to differentiate between that and the news.

I read the headline and simply thought: Well DUH!! ;)

"bISovbejbe'DI' tImer" (When in doubt, surprise them.)

Reply to post #1: I'll tell you just how big of an idiot he really is. I don't know if many people know just what kind of a sicko this clown is, but Bill Press sees nothing wrong with incest. I was at a debate at a Christian College in Orange County Calif. where he was debating a representative from the college. The debate got around to whether Bill Press saw anything wrong with homosexuality and he answered that any sexual act was al-right as long as it was between consenting adults. The representative from the college then countered by asking what about a brother and sister having sexual relations as long as they were consenting adults, to which Bill Press responded by saying, that he saw absolutely nothing wrong with this type of relationship. I was there and I saw it personally.

If Nader grows a bit more in the polls, the dems will do the math and realize that he can cost them the election. They will smear him like they do everyone else. I think there are enough hard left-leaning dems who have had enough of the clinton-gorp administration and will pull the lever for ralph. Whereas the hard right-leaning pubbies will pull for dubya believing anyone better than gorp and remembering the perot problem in '92.

The first 'immunity challenge' would be absolutely disgusting! Joe Conason and Bill Press would be given heaping platters of raw Clinton excrement (still writhing!), and they would gulp it down with demonic relish.

What's worse - they would ask for seconds, and be forced to fight off Clift, Lyons and the rest in order to enjoy it.

Bill Press has no credibilty in DC. He is only on Cnn CROSSFIRE because they cannot find anyone to take his place. Trying to "out" a man like Nader was just another example of his ineffectual rhetoric.

This parrot-phrase ( no doubt hatched by polling data ) which was regurgitated ad nauseum during impeachment, is getting a little "shopworn." The Klitophilliacs need to get an upgrade. It's becoming o-l-d.

Green on the surface, and solid Red underneath. Nader is a Marxist snake. Don't ever trust him. Where the hell was he 18 months ago on impeachment? If he felt so strongly, why didn't he speak up? He's only pandering for the votes of Democrats who are totally embarased by Clinton Gore.

Soon after Kathleen Willey went on 60 MINUTES Bill Press said on CROSSFIRE that he believed Willey and that clinton had some explaining to do (he even wrote a column saying the same thing). Later, after it became obvious that clinton was going to skate, Press changed his tune and was back to shilling for clinton again.

When the Broaddrick story broke Press didn't make the same "mistake" again. He attacked Broaddrick immediately.

Everytime I see that pouty weasel's face I think how much I'd like to be alone with him for 5 minutes.

In looking around as to what is happening now I am very confident that the tide is beginning to turn on the leftist element in this country. It will be a LONG time before they come back.

>>Happy 4th of July to you all, even you Bill Press, you pinko!<<

You obviously don't "get" Nader and his crusade. He hates Bubba because he considers Bubba a right-winger. Nader is a hard leftist when it comes to others,but a personal capitalist. He's made tons of money from corporations while damning them,and by lying in his books about them. His book "Unsafe at any Speed" about the Corvair killed it,and was his "intro" into big-time politics. The Corvair wasn't any more dangerous than any other car built at that time,and in fact was safer than many for the very reason Nader chose to damn it. The independent rear suspension. Nader wrote the book because one of his best friends was killed in a auto accident while driving a Corvair. I forget his name now,but the first name was "Jerry",and he was a comedian with a big mustache,and I think he was married to a woman named Ann. The reason for his accident? According to his wife who was riding with him,he took his eyes off the road to light a cigar,and crossed the center line.

If Nader ever told the truth about ANYTHING,it was incidental. He is about as moral as Bubbette.

Hi pete! Didn't know that about Nader, but then it really doesn't matter because I don't agree with anything he stands for. I don't care why he's attacking Clinton either, just as long as he does.

I also hope he pulls another 10% from Gore.:-)

Have to include perfect Ms. Ann Lewis. Then there is that counterpart of Conason who has the same dead-pan look ---Jennifer --?? Can't think of her last name. Help!

We're going to have a pretty big island for all these egos.

In addition to Al Hunt, Bill Press is never seen at the same time as Phil Donahue. Are they all the same retarded person? Is there something about that stupid white hair?

" Bill Press, Gene Lyons, Joe Conason, Chris Lehane and Eleanor Clift should be dumped on a desert island somewhere. They are the worst of the worst - oh, add Paul Begala to that list! UGH!!!!"

For heaven's sake, don't leave out Nina Burleigh, the "journalist" who volunteered to take up where Lewinski left off...

As for Nader speaking the truth, well that is what you will get with Mr. Nader, he's a tad green for me but strikes me as an honorable man.

I respect "real" Liberals (or even socialists), those who actually believe what they preach, like Ralph Nader or Christopher Hitchens. The important thing is that I don't have to agree with them or their views. They believe them, and are willing to support them on their own merits. I strongly disagree with both of them, but they are intelligent, well spoken men who are capable of being polite and engaging while making their points. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Nader briefly some years ago, and he was polite and friendly.

A most refreshing change from most "liberals."

If Bush Sr. would have pulled the Homos-in-the-Army thing, the democrats would have impeached both him and Quayle, and made Jim Wright prez. They had the votes in congress to do so. A homo wouldn't be welcome witin 10,000 yards of ay democrat event to this day. All the leftist "media" would support it fully too.

Remember Cynthia Alksne ? She was a Clinton shill until the Juanita Broaddrick interview aired. As a former sex-crimes prosecutor, she believed Juanita and wrote about it in the Wall Street Journal.

She was never heard from again...

I can say from personal experience that Clinton supporters such as Press are deranged cultists. When they get all buggy, don't get angry. Instead, take a page from the Gramschi/Alinksy/Hillary playbook. Smile patronizingly, pat their wittle heads and thenówhen they get all calmed downólaugh at them. Loudly.

The first 'immunity challenge' would be absolutely disgusting! Joe Conason and Bill Press would be given heaping platters of raw Clinton excrement (still writhing!), and they would gulp it down with demonic relish.

Is that what Bill puts on his hot dogs?

I'll second that. I'd cringe at the thought of him being president, but he is an honest and honorable man. I just disagree with most everything he stands for.

Honesty is admirable, but being intelligent and consistently wrong is not an honorable position. Nader once had a high position at Consumer Reports and nearly ran them out of business. CU was founded to give consumers information so they could make their own decisions more intelligently. Guess what Ralph thinks of people making their own decisions?

He turned an honorable magazine into a radical environmentalist pulpit. Subscriptions plummeted. He will do the same favor for the democrats. I wish him well.

As an avid "Crossfire" fan, I've heard/seen Press aplenty. The guy is nothing short of pathetic. Truly. I have yet to see a redeeming quality in him. Not one. Now, that's really sad, folks, because I try to see some good in just about anybody. Press is supposed to put on an "act", to a degree, on this show; I'm aware of that. However, he shows his true colors all too often. He absolutely despises anything resembling true freedom; he LOVES big government. Democrats: perfection. Republicans: downright evil. I, too, would dearly love to spend about five minutes in a room with this clown alone. Better yet, I'd love to be a guest on Crossfire and take him on. He's such an easy "target", for he wouldn't know facts or logic if they bit him in the arse.

Hopefully this is not another Arkancide. It will be so great to get these ruthless commie creeps out of power. I'd bet that even a lot of their shills would not mind it either. Clinton et al will stop at nothing to hide their crimes. I suspect that once Clinton/Gore are out of the WH we might get the many of the details on their many and varied crimes. Let's start with how Clinton/Gore & the DNC got money from Red Chinese Agents and MAGICALLY we find out China has our very own missile technology and they can now target our cities with nuclear weapons.

Amazing how these folks vanish. This is like tracking Soviet leadership moves under Stalin. "Oh look, this latest photo shows Bukharin missing. Do you think he was arrested?"<\p>

A line from a Ramones song comes to mind: "Third verse, same as the first."

He is consistantly wrong based on our way of thinking, which BTW is the correct way :-). I based my assumption on the little I knew about his career as a consumer advocate, the fact that he lives his belief (i.e. donating 80% of his own personal earnings to further his cause) and he has been consistant in pursuing those beliefs.

However, based on what Sneakypete said above about tests being faked I will remove both the words honest and honorable from any future reference to Nader.

You know Wait4Truth I actually like Allan Colmes. Yes, he is a liberal but I swear there are times when he seems really uncomfortable about having to support the liberal agenda. Sometimes I feel sorry for him. Since the Hannity and Colmes show is right vs. left, perhaps he has to support the left's argument even if he disagrees with it.

No flames from anyone please, I'm very sensitive. ;-)
