So, I had the wrong Nate, I'm still having to place everybody.
Did you NOT see Aldrich's interview? He kept admitting that it was
all allegations, gossip--"matters that need to be further looked
into." He was not credible. Some of his "sources" were infuriated
that he would use their name in connection with his "reporting."
They said they talked with him over a glass of beer and admitted they
were just gossiping and had no idea the guy would use them in a book.
Aldrich guy backed down and made himself look like a fool and YOU STILL
BELIEVE HIM--Nateman, where is your logic!
check it out:
He told Tim "allegations that need to be further looked into."
Whitewater, my goodness, the Republicans have spent $30 million
dollars to investigate that trailer court project. We could have
bought everybody in Arkansas a mobile home for that...but don't get
me started on government spending. . . the Republicans will drain the
treasury to go after Clinton.
