Consumer Reports

They knew they'd get away with it -- "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do is fulfill my profession." -- Hillary Clinton, 1992, regarding allegations that her Arkansas governor husband funneled money to her law firm.

"I find it not an accident that every time he is on the verge of fulfilling his commitment to the American people and they are responding -- whether it's forging ahead in the polls in New Hampshire or now with very high popularity -- out comes yet a new round of these outrageous, terrible stories that people plant for political and financial reasons." -- The Missus on Whitewater.

"There are powerful forces in this country who basically resent the way the last election came out, so they keep trying to undo it." -- Clinton pooh-poohing Paula Jones' allegations in 1994. "Clinton's an unusually good liar. Unusually good. Do you realize that?" -- then-Sen. Bob Kerrey, D-Neb.

"Much of what appears here will seem at odds with statements made by the president and first lady, some of them under oath." -- James B. Stewart, explaining his book "Blood Sport."

"We recognize that the manner in which the White House handled the firing of the Travel Office employees unfairly tarnished the careers and reputations of employees, particularly those with no financial responsibility for the Travel Office operation." -- House Democrat report on Travelgate.

"They raise more money in big contributions and we take all the heat." -- Clinton on Republicans.

"I see the White House as like a subway -- you have to put in coins to open the gates." -- Big DNC donor Johnny Chung to the L.A. Times.

"There is no controlling legal authority." -- Veep Al Gore on fund-raising calls he made from the White House.

"I think next time I'll give $600,000."-- Big Demo donor Roger Tamraz, who didn't get enough grease for $300,000.

"Where is the outrage?"-- Bob Dole.

"NOW will not be rushed to judgment, not by right-wing attempts to undermine us." -- NOW's Patricia Ireland on Paula Jones.

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." -- Clinton.

"A vast right-wing conspiracy." -- HRC.

"Remember, Monica has never had a so-called normal relationship." -- Talk show host Geraldo Rivera.

"It's illegal to threaten the president of the United States." -- What Lewinsky said the president told her.

"While my answers were legally accurate, I did not volunteer information." -- Clinton to America.

Clinton will "be regarded in the history books as one of our greatest presidents." -- Gore.

"(C)ertain of my responses to questions about Ms. Lewinsky were false." -- Clinton 2001 plea bargain.

"There was, however, no impropriety in these matters." -- Hugh Rodham's attorney on Pardongate.

"It came as a surprise to me and it was very disturbing." -- Hillary last week.

Former aide George Stephanopoulos, now of ABC, opined, "It just says this whole pardon process was a pure mess."

That's right. Blame the process. Clintonia has fobbed Clinton misdeeds on people who didn't appreciate Hil's career, bimbos, "haters," liars, election laws, lack of election laws and conspiracies. So why not blame the pardon process -- even if Clinton didn't follow it?
