You Have Some Nerve to Talk

One tradition that former presidents have kept over the years is not to criticize their successors while they are in office. It was a classy thing to do and it was followed because former presidents knew just how tough the job was. In recent years, however, Jimmy Carter has been very critical of US policy and of George W. Bush in particular. I don't think much of what he said really carried any weight because he sounded like a feeble-minded, cranky old man. Not to say anything of his disastrous term in office.

Now, Jimmy Carter has company. Bill Clinton is back on the scene (wagging his finger again a la "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky):


Yesterday, he went on a tirade about the Bush administration invading Iraq "virtually alone and before UN inspections were completed, with no real urgency, and no evidence that there were weapons of mass destruction."

The audacity of this guy to criticize the person who is tasked with cleaning up his mess is astounding. A fair amount of culpability for the attack resulting in the war on terror should rest on this man's shoulders. Of course, he would feel that there was "no real urgency" in dealing with Iraq. This is the man who let al-Qaeda get stronger and bolder with each attack that this guy didn't deem urgent enough to respond to. The first World Trade Center bombing got a few terrorists arrested. Other than that, two US embassies in Africa were bombed with no retaliation, the US Cole bombing, Saddam's plot to assassinate former president Bush, Saddam's decision to kick out UN weapons inspectors, Saddam's repeated defiance of the no-fly zone and firing on US pilots, and al-Qaeda's repeated threats to the United States were not urgent enough for Clinton to respond to. Sure, he fired some cruise missles and bombed an aspirin factory in Sudan, but that was more to take the focus on Monica's first day of testimony.

The only real urgency Bill Clinton had during his term in office was manipulating a chubby 21-year old intern with clear self-esteem issues, then trying to cover it all up. He spent more time covering up his scandals than dealing with a festering terrorist movement that ultimately took thousands of American lives in an entirely preventable attack. You sir, have some nerve to talk.

Whatever. G.W has had 4 years to get Osama hasn't he? How many of the 9/11 attackers came from Saudi Arabia? Yet Georgy boy is still wearing a pearl necklace courtesy of the crown princes. I'm sick of all you right wing nuts who put the republican party before your country. Wake up and stop drinking the kool aid ass!!!

Hey U Fox News troll, I see you are still hypnotized by Karl Rove's focus group tested one liners. "The blame game" fell flat though didn't it. Now the entire world can see we are truly not "Safer at home" after the Katrina debacle. If the bush team failed so miserably on U.S soil, I can't even begin to imagine what the real story in Iraq is. G.W isn't just asleep at the wheel, the bloody cokehead has had more than a few gallons of hooch. "Mission Accomplished" my ass!!!

Easy there, Michael Moore. I can see that someone can recite one liners and it isn't me. Everyone who doesn't repeat the DNC talking points is a Fox News Troll and is brainwashed by Karl Rove. Unfortunately, I really think a lot of you believe that. You are so angry that you don't see how ridiculous your post looks. It is full of grammatical and capitalization errors and very disjointed. You're all over the place. If you and your ilk stopped shouting all the time, maybe you will get the real story.

" full of grammatical and capitalization errors and very disjointed..."

My grammer is perfect and my flow is undeniably remarkable. I'm afraid your lack of reasonable counter arguments has gotten the better of you. Fibbing my friend, will surely drag this discourse into the sewer.

Let us make a deal Mr. LOVER. Get your spelling up to pre-school level and I'll glady take you capitalization 101 course.

"You are so angry ..."
Rather ironic isn't it. The John Wayne wannabe posing with the gun thinks I'm the angry one. Boggles the mind indeed.
I'm no democrat. Those spineless bozos do not deserve my vote. The DNC is almost as bad as the RNC.

I'm as cool as ice. This Karl Rove produced pantomime doesn't bother me.
