From behind the benign faÃƒÂ§ade and the tranquilizing smile, the real Bill Clinton emerged Sunday during Chris WallaceÂ’s interview on Fox News Channel. There he was on live television, the man those who have worked for him have come to know Â– the angry, sarcastic, snarling, self-righteous, bombastic bully, roused to a fever pitch. The truer the accusation, the greater the feigned indignation. Clinton jabbed his finger in WallaceÂ’s face, poking his knee, and invading the commentatorÂ’s space.Morris then goes on to poke holes in many of the former President's assertions that he made in that interview. As someone who was once a close confidant and adviser, Morris is nonetheless comfortable sharing his experiences with Clinton. He parted ways with the Clintonistas years ago and no longer fears Bubba's wrath.
But beyond noting the ex-presidentÂ’s non-presidential style, it is important to answer his distortions and misrepresentations. His self-justifications constitute a mangling of the truth which only someone who once quibbled about what the Â“definition of Â‘isÂ’ isÂ” could perform.
On a related note, The Anchoress has a rather lengthy and well written analysis of Clinton's "daddy" issues - a must-read.
