This made me giggle:
Former President Bill Clinton has privately expressed anger he has apparently been left off the speakers list of Friday’s Reagan State Funeral, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
“President Clinton really held out all hope the funeral would be a nonpartisan event, like Nixon’s was,” a top Clinton source said on Tuesday morning. “He’s angry and disappointed neither he nor President Carter have been asked to speak, as of yet.”
The top source says Clinton has been critical that both Bush presidents will address the crowd gathered at National Cathedral.
Nixon’s vice president Gerald Ford did not speak at Nixon’s funeral.
Clinton’s inner circle is convinced Nancy Reagan has personally shut out Clinton from any high-profile participation.
Does anyone ever remember one polite- screw polite, one positive thing that the Clinton’s ever said about Ronald Reagan? I mean, just one. All I remember is the ‘decade of greed’ mantra along with systematically blaming Reagan for all the ills of society.
Is anyone really surprised he will not be a keynote speaker at Reagan’s funeral? Does anyone want him to be the speaker at Reagan’s funeral? Did anyone expect him to be the speaker? I didnn’t think so…
How would Clinton feel about Ken Starr speaking at his funeral? Just curious, you know.
*** Update ***
I am aware who Ken Starr is- and the analogy I was trying to make was not between comparable persons, but people who held comparable opinions. Having listened to Clinton prattle on about the decade of greed during his entire Presidency, my point was that Clinton feels about Reagan the way Ken Starr probably feels about Clinton.
Sorry to confuse you, sweetheart.
PS- are you natural blonde?
PPS- At Nixon’s funeral, Billy Graham, Bill Clinton (the current President), Bob Dole, Henry Kissinger (someone who knew the man well and served in his administration), and Pete Wilson spoke. No Carter. Was that political?
Name one reason Clinton should speak, other than his Schumeresque desire to be on camera 24/7?
If all the prominent Democrats are booed when they enter the funeral, and, if Reagan’s son comes on stage, starts pointing at Democrats, and wails for them to vote for George Bush to maintain Reagan’s legacy, I would agree it is as tacky and tasteless as the Wellstone pep-rally.
*** Update #2 ***
Question: Who are Earl Warren, Mike Mansfield, and John McCormack, and why would I ask this question?
