No one in the populace should have any concern for Clinton, because Clinton has only feigned concern for the populace and became the corporate Right-Wing’s “best Republican President EVER”, according to Alan Greenspan, and Greenspan should know, as they worked together to destroy the economy of the nation.  Free Market being a soft cover for corporate control, or fascism, as they worked to condense the markets where only a few corporations would be in control.

DLC Bill eats too much fat because he threw away the populace:

“As for the “U.N. Special Envoy to Haiti”. speaking at an October 2009 investors conference in Port-au-Prince that attracted do-gooders like Gap, Levi Strauss and Citibank, Bill Clinton claimed a revitalized garment industry could create 100,000 jobs. The reason some 200 companies, half of them garment manufacturers, attended the conference was because “Haiti’s extremely low labor costs, comparable to those in Bangladesh, make it so appealing” said the New York Times.”

I know, Mark.  I hope the surgeon didn’t stint with his stent.  Brother, who looks at
these articles for accuracy?

The little heart-thingy President Clinton recieved in the coronary surgery was a STENT, not a STINT.  You might say it was the latter that he served in the White House.

To whomever bothered to edit this article:

The word is “stent,” not “stint.”
