    From NBC:


    Former President Clinton is renting the entire 56th floor in the Carnegie
    Towers building in New York.

    High cost of Clinton space

    Taxpayers to pay
    $700,000 a year
    for former president's
    New York digs

    By Andrea Mitchell
    NBC NEWS

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 30 - Bill Clinton is out of office, but he's not
    without an office. Soon the former president will be renting the entire 56th
    floor - 8300 square feet - in Manhattan's luxurious Carnegie Towers. The Web
    ad for the building says it has spectacular views and "white glove" service.


    SOURCES SAID the rental cost of more than $700,000 a year will be
    charged to the taxpayer - more than all of the other former presidents'
    offices combined.
    "President Clinton's office space would shatter all previous records
    for former presidents, who are already living high on the taxpayer tab,"
    said Pete Sepp of the National Taxpayers Union.
    No one questions that Clinton needs an office. All former presidents
    get them for life.
    But critics ask, how much should the government spend? Former
    President Bush's Houston office rents for $147,000 a year, Ronald Reagan's
    Los Angeles office for $285,000, Jimmy Carter's Atlanta office for $93,000
    and Gerald Ford's office near Palm Springs for $99,000.

    Key members of Congress say Clinton's cost is way out of line.
    "He may well push the envelope into an area where the Congress
    decides we need to put some limitation on that," said Rep. Jim Kolbe,
    R-Ariz., chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee.
    Clinton aides say expensive rentals are just a fact of life in New
    York.
    But this is only the latest stumble for former president - not
    including when Buddy knocked him over. There have also been been lavish
    gifts and the last-minute pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich. Even
    Carter criticized that, telling Jay Leno, "No effort had been made to get
    the Justice Department to investigate or to approve the pardon, it was just
    done at the last minute, in the middle of the night."

    And all this put Hillary Clinton on the defensive as she launches
    her Senate career.
    "The White House years, the administration of my husband, are over
    and I am going to be focused solely on the job that I can do to help New
    York," the former first lady said at a news conference Monday.
    Aides said Bill Clinton will make his first paid speech next week,
    getting at least $100,000 - top dollar, which is what critics say he's
    charging the taxpayer for his office.

    8 years of embarrassing the American people with his penchant for his pecker, and he STILL has the gall to try and pull this off?

    Is anyone REALLY surprised that Bozo The Clinton would pull something like this? Hey Van Edge, you forgot to mention all those thousands of pardons that Clinton administered at the last minute.

    Clinton is such an arrogant jackass!! But I'm sure someone will come to his defense here on the links and try to justify Slick Willie's lavish spending. But there is only one answer: He's a fuckin' crook. I hope they eventually catch his ass doing something illegal so he can be thrown in prison. Thats his type of people.

    Nothin' better than a good ol' fashion Clinton roast. I hate that crook with a passion. Last week when he fell over backwards when Buddy tripped him, I laughed my ass off. Especially when he turned sheepishly to the cameras and tried to look like nothing had happened.

    I don't know Bill. Maybe you should have kept Socks afterall.

    Great Now he is charging tax payers 675k a year on a fucking office. Every president has this as an entitlement. MOST are able to keep it within acceptable limits and good taste. Leave it up to this FUCKHEAD to blow the lid off of decency one more time. Good lord this pisses me off. Reagan was a bit high too, but jesus, this is ridiculous.

    There's needs to be someplace for Oliver North's paper shredder.

    So, Bubba's office is 8300 square feet? Wow, pretty big. Imagine how many desks he could fit in there....

    And more importantly, to him, imagine how many interns he can fit under them.

    A Cuban, anyone? "Light 'Em Up."

    Thats what politicians do. They will always take care of themselves first. Congress jsut got a pay raise. They bundle laws with riders so shit will pass and they pass this stuff early morning or late in the evening so no one notices. The president will sign a bill for his money even if it means congress gets a huge pay increase or a bigger pention. All politicians go ito Washington clean but leave dirty. Please, I have Henry Hyde for a congressman. Talk about Pork barrel. He is the dirtiest one up there. Now I getting started on a rant. I will stop.
