At about 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 18, Ms. Currie went to meet with President Clinton at the White House. She told the grand jury:
He said that he had had his deposition yesterday, and they had asked several questions about Monica Lewinsky. And I was a little shocked by that or -- (shrugging). And he said -- I don't know if he said -- I think he may have said, "There are several things you may want to know," or "There are things -- " He asked me some questions.
According to Ms. Currie, the President then said to her in succession:
"You were always there when she was there, right? We were never really alone."
"You could see and hear everything."
"Monica came on to me, and I never touched her, right?"
"She wanted to have sex with me, and I can't do that."
Ms. Currie indicated that these remarks were "more like statements than questions."
What occurred to me while reading through this thread, and so many others like it, is this. People have a very thin skin and think of themselves as too important.
"He called me babe, he harassed me"
"She thinks being gay is a sin, she must hate me"
"He painted Muhammad with a gun, he must be killed"
"He referenced chocolate, he must be racist"
"He, she, they...don't think like I do, they must be scum"
Good grief, get a grip and try to find some commonality instead of faults, give others the benefit of the doubt. And yes, I included Muhammad cartoons on purpose. Why? Think about it. We bicker about stuff that is really not important and forget to look at the bigger picture.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
