By the time you become the leader of a country, someone else makes all the decisions. You may find you can get away with Virtual Presidents, Virtual Prime Ministers, and Virtual Everything. - Bill Clinton
Remarks to Employees at Gateway, Inc., in Santry, Ireland
September 4, 1998
It was a joke about how much signing his name he does.
Of course there's a degree of truth behind it. Much of the things he signed were acts of congress, and not his decisions at all. But that's just the way the government works. Nothing like the implied conspiracy of shadowy figures behind the presidency. Such as in this mis-usage:
Not only is the quote taken totally out of context, it's got a new setting as an answer to a question. Unfortunately fake usages like this tend to propagate in conspiracy culture.
Most "Conspiracy Theories" has some degree of truth, okay, Clinton was joking, and you presented your interpretations, what is your interpretation on this:
"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it." The New Freedom (1913), Page 5, Section I: “The Old Order Changeth”, by Dr. Thomas Woodrow Wilson the 28th President of the United States.
Perhaps Wilson was bluffing his readers!! Do you think so?! I don't!
