Clinton on Fox = Wallace's a** on a plate
September 25, 2006
Part 1 is HERE, though it's not a prerequisite. It's enough to say that Clinton begins the removal of Chris Wallace's ass which he completes in the clip, right. The juicy parts are in the transcript below...
So you did FoxÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bidding on this show. You did your nice little conservative hit job on me. What I want to know isÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
WALLACE: Well, wait a minute, sir.
CLINTON: No, wait. No, noÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
WALLACE: I want to ask a question. You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a legitimate question?
CLINTON: It was a perfectly legitimate question, but I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked this question of.
I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked, Why didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t you do anything about the Cole?
I want to know how many you asked, Why did you fire Dick Clarke?
I want to know how many people you askedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
WALLACE: We asked Ã¢â‚¬â€ we askedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
CLINTON: I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢tÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
WALLACE: Do you ever watch Fox News Sunday, sir?
CLINTON: I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe you asked them that.
WALLACE: We ask plenty of questions ofÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
CLINTON: You didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask that, did you? Tell the truth, Chris.
WALLACE: About the USS Cole?
CLINTON: Tell the truth, Chris.
WALLACE: With Iraq and Afghanistan, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s plenty of stuff to ask.
CLINTON: Did you ever ask that?
You set this meeting up because you were going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers because Rupert MurdochÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s supporting my work on climate change.
And you came here under false pretenses and said that youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d spend half the time talking about Ã¢â‚¬â€ you said youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d spend half the time talking about what we did out there to raise $7-billion-plus in three days from 215 different commitments. And you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t care.
WALLACE: But, President Clinton, if you look at the questions here, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see half the questions are about that. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think this was going to set you off on such a tear.
CLINTON: You launched it Ã¢â‚¬â€ it set me off on a tear because you didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t formulate it in an honest way and because you people ask me questions you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask the other side.
