“I’ve Seen Those Eyes Before”

Thursday, 9.27.07

John appeared briefly on The Situation Room yesterday for analysis of Bill Clinton’s recent slamming of the “smearing” Republicans.

For some background on why Clinton was so hot under the collar, Alexander Mooney over at yesterday’s Political Ticker writes that Clinton “blasted Republicans Wednesday for their recent uproar over a MoveOn.org newspaper ad questioning Gen. David Petraeus’ credibility.”

The article, General Petraeus or General Betray Us? claims that Petraeus is “Cooking The Books” for the White House to mislead the public about progress in Iraq.

That has gotten some republicans pretty steamed, which, in turn, has gotten Bill Clinton steamed!

Clinton granted an interview to Anderson Cooper about this most recent heated battle between the Dems and the GOP. (Wouldn’t you just love to have seen John tackle that interview with Clinton?)

After the interview clip aired on Wednesday’s Situation Room, Wolf asked John, “Did you see his eyes as he began to get into that answer to Anderson’s question?” and he replied, “I’ve seen those eyes before, Wolf, and you can bet there are democrats across the country, some of them watching saying amen, let’s nominate Hillary Clinton and get that back into the fight, get Bill Clinton countering every blow the republicans want to send up.”

Take a look for yourself at how p***ed-off Clinton looked:




I don’t have any John King screen/video caps for you today from his appearance on yesterday’s Situation Room, since his video commentary with Wolf has not yet been posted at the CNN website.

But I do have a few other pictures up my sleeve… I shall now wave my magic wand…



The below were graciously sent over by Kitten… some smart-looking London caps that hadn’t been included in my previous posts about John’s trip abroad. I just couldn’t let these go to waste without sharing them here at johnthenewsking!

    BTW, in that last pic it looks like Bill Clinton needs to sneeze.

    No, he was just squinting his eyes in anger. You could tell he was really, really perturbed throughout the interview.

    My magic wand says, “You’re Beary Welcome!”

  4. I saw Anderson Cooper’s interview with Clinton on 360, and it was GREAT. I like Clinton, he comes across as intelligent and the few times he’s been on 360 he has always answered everything Anderson asked him.

    Ooooh John in blue jeans…NICE 😀

    Thank you kitten for the screencaps!!!

    Yup, I am digging that last screencap with him walking in jeans.

    I bet that 90 % of the time we see him from waist-up only, he is wearing jeans.
