I don't see why this is a scandal. He did this via speaking engagements (he's well-liked around the world), and none of the companies are based in countries unfriendly to the U.S.
He's bringing in money. He's affecting the trade balance in a positive direction. At least he's not working as a lobbyist.

To be able to share you opinion not necessary factual nor a substance to the truth.
Like the old grand dad Republican said; It doesn't make you smart just because you voice out your opinion. Being a true American & a true Republic citizen who bare truth to his words & take responsibility to his own action.
My grand dad pass away not to live long enough to see a colored man become the president but he cast his vote for the very first time as a true Republican in a Democratic ballot. He said that he maybe blind now but he rather to become the first white male from the old Republican party since FDR to be part of this historical election. There is no doubt in his mind the this kid will be the one to brake the long awaited the fulfillment in the Declaration of Independence.
He died at 104 years old.

No scandal He is entitled to make money. Look at Reagan...

Bill Clinton was that president from the last century right(I'm to young to remember)

Why are we talking about him??

Wasn't that like two wars ago? I heard we had a balanced budget way back then.

What was it like before Bush made the world hate us? Could you go to Europe without pretending to be Canadian?
Did we have jobs and American students in college, or was it like it is now?

I don't know, tell me.

So????

Bechtel construction and engineering company received one of the largest no-bid contracts -- worth $2.4 billion -- to help coordinate and rebuild a large part of Iraq's infrastructure. Wanna know who paid Bechtel? The American taxpayer.

Did Bill Clinton's measly 6 mil earned through speaking engagements cost the American taxpayer anything? Don't think so.

I'm trying to remember the name of a foreign company that Billy Boy was a partner. The company was busted for slave labor. Oh ya Billy Boy's a dandy.

Bill Clinton is clearly the most corrupt and immoral former President in US history who is ready to cash b sacrificing on US most vital interests.
Evidently, Hillary Clinton will use her rule of the State department to sell the interests of the American people to foreign countries that support radical Islamic through her corrupt and greedy husband whose love for money is unstoppable. They both will serve the born again Muslim that was hiding his obsession with Islam and the islamic world interests by portraying that he was innocent Christian.
The American people are getting what they asked for which is the most corrupt and anti-American regime in US history including the tax cheater treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who vowed to push American off the cliff only to serve the interests of Iran, and the islamic world. President Hussein corrupt and anti-American Islamic regime is supported by the lying trash liberal media that sold Obama to the American people as innocent Christian while hiding his Islamic Madrassa education and his Islamic family and the fact that he was financed by the radical Islamic world to become their American president leader of Islamic America.

Hmmmm, Clinton served two terms, and the economy was going quite well. Bush served two terms and we need Jesus Christ to come down and fix it. Corruption always leaves behind a calling card of poop. Whose poop are we cleaning up-Clinton's or Bush?

Exactly...why shouldn't Clinton trade on his fame?
Condie Rice already has a book deal going.

However, I think you are wrong about Bush and Cheney. They and their families dare not leave the country. They are marked men. If they are not grabbed for war crime trials by some foreign government, they'll be assassinated.

Speaking of no bid contracts, how many did Halliburton land. And wasn't Cheney CEO of Halliburton at one time? I wonder how much he received under the table from them
