    Guess nobody saw this, or maybe did and didn't want it to be revealed to the general public (!!!), but here we have what the Clintons are all about. One of their ardent minions, Sidney Blumenthal, caught in the act. Aggravated DWI. Hey, didn't he once go after the Arkansas State Troopers who wanted the world to know the truth about Bill and Hillary Clinton??? Why, yes, Sidney Blumenthal did do that.

    Wonder who he's going to blame for this one???? :rofl:

    [size=+3]Blumenthal On the Boil[/size]
    Newsweek

    contributed by Suzanne Smalley

    Sidney Blumenthal plays hardball. A longtime confidante and adviser to the Clintons, he has zealously defended them through any number of scandal investigations. Along the way, Blumenthal has shown an affinity for the sharp counterattack. When a group of Arkansas state troopers in the early 1990s began leveling charges that Bill Clinton had strayed in his marriage, Blumenthal shot back--penning an article in The New Yorker accusing the troopers of a litany of their own transgressions, including attempted fraud, marital infidelity and drunken driving.

    Now, Blumenthal himself faces charges of driving drunk. Blumenthal, an unpaid senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, was arrested in Nashua on the eve of the New Hampshire primary and charged with aggravated DWI, according two members of the Nashua police force.

    Sgt. Mike Masella, one of the arresting officers, said the movements of a Buick caught his eye. “I observed all his erratic driving,” Masella said. “When I first noticed him it was at an intersection. He abruptly stopped. That caught my eye … He was drifting in his lane.” Masella followed the car, a rental, for a mile and a half, and clocked its speed at 70mph in a 30mph zone--more than twice the legal limit. Masella pulled the car over at 12:30 a.m. Monday morning. Blumenthal told the officer he was returning to his hotel from a restaurant in Manchester. After declining to take a Breathalyzer, Masella says, Blumenthal failed a field sobriety test. Blumenthal was handcuffed, booked, had his fingerprints taken and was held for four hours--standard operating procedure in such arrests in New Hampshire--before posting bail and being released. (He will be arraigned later this month.) Because the car was moving at excessive speeds, Blumenthal was given the more serious charge of “aggravated” DWI--which carries a mandatory sentence of at least three days behind bars. “He’s charged with a serious crime,” says Nashua Police Capt. Peter Segal, who will oversee the case as it moves toward a court date.

    Ray Mello, a New Hampshire attorney, says he is representing Blumenthal and will explore “all of the avenues of discovery.” (Translation: "We going to do our best to spin this into somebody else's mistake because above all else we want to let Sidney go free, just like OJ got set free 15 years ago.")

    When the Clinton camp was asked about this, "no comment." They're figuring out a way to parse this.

    Hm-m-m, "mandatory 3 days behind bars." Time enough to meet Bruno and Jamaal. :eek:

    "When will they ever learn; when will they learn??"

    allow me to be frank, regarding your rather pissy, conjured up initial paragraph...

    who here continuously supports the Clintons to the point of actually knowing about, and avoiding (as you suggest) this lame story here? i mean, name a single poster who defends the goofy Clinton's to no end here on this fan forum? yawn-tacular...

    you make your posting living on creating strawman arguments... the rest of the forum is well aware...

    "Conjured up"???? Au contraire!! Read the truth about Sidney Blumenthal, and weep. He's a partisan hack with one talent: digging up dirt and going for the jugular; one of the Clintonista attack dogs.

    And now, he's up sh!ts creek. One of the most beautifully poetic events with which to start one's day.

    Wasn't someone on this list saying a year ago something about "what goes around, comes around"??? Oh, that's right!! It was me!!

    :singing:


    Now watch the Clintons blow themselves out of the water by going negative on Obama. Already they have p!ssed off the "big" black community "spokesmen" (mack-daddy pimps that they are), Jesse Jerkson and Al-TawanaBrawley-Sharpton. And it's just getting warmed up. The Clintons are going to get their "Headquarters" kicked out of Harlem before this is over:

    [size=+2]Hillary and Bill Clinton
    Comments from the Clintons and Clinton supporters are spurring a racial backlash.[/size]


    A series of comments from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, her husband and her supporters are spurring a racial backlash and adding a divisive edge to the presidential primary as the candidates head south to heavily African-American South Carolina.

    The comments, which ranged from the New York senator appearing to diminish the role of Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights movement — an aide later said she misspoke — to Bill Clinton dismissing Sen. Barack Obama’s image in the media as a “fairy tale” — generated outrage on black radio, black blogs and cable television. And now they've drawn the attention of prominent African-American politicians.

    “A cross-section of voters are alarmed at the tenor of some of these statements,” said Obama spokeswoman Candice Tolliver, who said that Clinton would have to decide whether she owed anyone an apology.

    “There’s a groundswell of reaction to these comments — and not just these latest comments but really a pattern, or a series of comments that we’ve heard for several months,” she said. “Folks are beginning to wonder: Is this really an isolated situation, or is there something bigger behind all of this?”

    thanks for not addressing either question i posed in that thread...

    clearly, what's "conjured up", and what i meant by "conjured up paragraph" is nothing more than your pretentious assertion that a) no one noticed it; and b) everyone was trying to cover it up...

    i'll ask again, more succinctly: who here mentions they care much about the Clintons to where you're getting your rocks off?

    look at you, in all your glory... a negative Clinton story you've been waiting weeks/months for, and you're so busy basking in it, you can't even acknowledge another poster who's asking you a direct question...

    What was the question??? Oh, did Sidney Blumenthal, a cut-throat minion of the Clinton camp, really get arrested for aggravated DWI the night before the NH Primaries???

    YEP.

    And he's got to serve a mandatory sentence of three days in jail for getting so plastered he couldn't walk a straight line, was more than TWO TIMES the speed limit -- in a residential area, it's lucky he didn't hit some old lady or a child crossing the street -- did he do that???

    Yes, again.

    A sad day for politics in America. All caused by the blind, unquenchable desire to have power, that is the Clinton trademark.

    So, according to you: Politico made up this story?? Sidney Blumenthal, a Clinton partisan hack for at least 20 years, was "NOT" drunk out of his mind the night before the NH primaries???

    The Nashua Police Department "made this all up"???? It never happened??? Sidney Blumenthal was not caught speeding at 70 MPH in a 30 MPH zone, a residential area where children on bicycles and old ladies cross the streets???

    Is this what you are saying??

    You better sue the Nashua police then, for false arrest.


    As for Politico: they found the story, and they ran it. Just because YOU are upset that someone found out the truth on the Clinton's camp doesn't mean that everyone else also wants to pretend it never happened.

    LOLOL.

    look at you being purposefully disingenuous again... man, i'm gonna miss you...

    anyhow, scroll back to post #2 and search for the question marks... just before those, you'll notice a direct question that you've glossed over and have yet to address...

    here, i'l ask it for a third time: who here has mentioned they're big fans of Hillary Clinton?

    [size=+3]Clinton advisor charged with DWI[/size]
    Posted: 10:30 PM ET
    [size=+2]Sidney Blumenthal is an unpaid adviser to Hillary Clinton.[/size]


    NASHUA, New Hampshire (AP) – A senior adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton was arrested and charged with aggravated drunken driving a day before the New Hampshire primary.

    Nashua police say Sidney Blumenthal was arrested early Monday morning after an officer pulled over a car traveling 70 mph in a 30 mph zone. Blumenthal, 59, is a journalist and former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton who is now serving as an unpaid adviser on Hillary Clinton's campaign.

    "I asked if he was here with a campaign. He said he was here with Clinton," Sgt. Mike Masella, one of the arresting officers, told newsweek.com.

    Masella said Blumenthal told him he got lost after leaving a restaurant in Manchester, about 20 miles away, to return to his hotel.

    Smelling alcohol, officers said they administered a field sobriety test, which Blumenthal failed. Though Blumenthal declined to take a Breathalyzer test, he was arrested on a charge of aggravated drunken driving due to the speed, Masella said.

    A handcuffed Blumenthal spent about four hours at a police station before being bailed out Monday morning, Masella said.

    Gotta agree with the "idiot" part, although it leaves off the "partisan hack, hypocritical, one-way" parts that dominate Blumenthal's character.

    And, "meaningless"??? It would be "meaningless" if character were meaningless. Fortunately, there are still some people in the American electorate who do care about the character of the president and those whom the president chooses keep close to him.

    What I am saying, but you do not listen, is that if you report a biased blog then the information is somewhat skewed.. do not know if you are capable of hearing this, but political blogs on either side have a huge agenda.. Just like if I listen to the Colbert and report what he says.. they are what they are.

    Let's see Duke Cunningham, Michael Scanlon, Scooter Libby, Jack Abramoff, Bob Ney.. Trent Lott need I say more, if you would like could list all those people close to Bush, how about the Enron people, which by your line of reasoning would effect the character of George Bush.. not George the rules do not apply to him.

    It was front page news for weeks when they were going after Bush for the same thing, Dan Rathers lips used to quiver when he reported it.
