In this interview on FOX by Chris Wallace, the point that is most concerning as to Bill Clinton’s state of mind is when he says that “you people are upset because Rupert Murdoch (Chairman of FOX News‘ parent company, News Corp.) “is contributing to (his) work” (so Bill Clinton refers to it) “on climate change.” This degree of negative characterisation and utter paranoid dismissal by Clinton of vast, various individuals — the FOX Network, Wallace, “right wingers” and “neocons” and “the other side” so Clinton refers to “them” — truly concerns me.
Those statements concern me about Bill Clinton (as he emotionally reveals himself to be in this interview and in previous episodes, many of which political handlers succeeded in dismissing as marginal opinions — to the disservice of people who have been victimized by Clinton’s excesses), because it reveals a sort of “mostly hidden personality” that dominates who he is and which is quite paranoid and quite punishing. He does, he reveals in this appearance on FOX, reveal that he is waging some aggressive woe upon the “people of the other side” — not a leadership mentality, but an oppositional, militant mentality about one nation. In Clinton’s mind, however, there isn’t one nation but two: his, his people, and them, the others, the ones on “the other side.” He’s established an enemy, he’s fighting an enemy and the enemy is the majority of the citizens of the United States.
And the part where interviewer Chris Wallace is ridiculed by Clinton as “sitting there with that smirk on (his) face” is a evidence of batterer barage by Clinton. Clinton rising out of his chair and advancing toward the seated Wallace, wagging that Clinton finger at him, looming into Wallace’s face, closing-up the space betweent their two seats inorder to impose himself over Wallace — and most telling toward the end of the interview — for Clinton to lean way over “onto” Wallace by stamping his finger (Clinton’s) repeatedly onto Wallace’s paperwork that is positioned on Wallace’s lap — these are all body language of an aggressive if not abusive person upon another. I admire Wallace for his stoic composure.
Clinton is pleased with his fundraising — and well he should be, and no one I have yet to hear nor read is not — but I believe his fundraising (The Clinton Global Initiative — which now, after seeing this Wallace interview with Clinton, takes on a sort of “I’m global, I’m Super Brain!” sort of definition) is serving to reinforce Clinton in his worst personality characteristics: that of megalomania and damaging paranoia that leads him to negatively prejudge and presume upon others in an insupportable fashion, just as he did upon Wallace.
Did not Wallace continue to ask Bill Clinton about the Global Initiative? Clinton saying (and several times) that Wallace (“you people”) were preventing him (Clinton) from talking about this fundraising work was puzzling. I know I viewed several entire photoslideshows just the other day from the recent Clinton Global Initiative meet in New York (September 2006) and read several lengthy print articles about it, and I clearly heard Wallace ask Clinton several times about this work. To megalomaniacs, no amount of attention is sufficient and it sure seems to apply in this situation to Clinton because the only person on that interview on FOX who was avoiding discussing the Global Initiative was Bill Clinton.
And, in fundraising, it should never be overlooked that the financial results are those of the donors participating and not a point upon which any fundraiser should gloat nor use for personal advantage — and that includes egoism, which, unfortunately, seems to be Bill Clinton’s ongoing downfall. His finger-wagging, red-faced, bug-eyed glassy leaning stares are not the behaviors of a mature nor balanced individual. But the contrary accusations from Clinton about “the other party” and “the other side” were downright sad in light of the issue of national security attempted to be asked of him.

Trackbacks and comments had to be closed on this thread and a number of others on this site because of ongoing spamming attempts originating in Israel, from a domain called “bezeqint.net”. The harassment of this site has been intense and excessive, targeting this thread (about Clinton) and the two threads earlier here about “godaddy.com”. All the other threads on this site were ignored, while those themed threads drew incredible assault of spam. The plan seems to be to prevent discussion and dissemination of the thread issues, in my view.
