Clinton launches withering attack on Bush on Iraq, Katrina, budget - Yahoo! News

Clinton launches withering attack on Bush on Iraq, Katrina, budget - Yahoo! News

The article goes on to tell of Former President Bill Clinton's sharp criticism of President Bush. Points out that this is in contrast to tradition of former Presidents mute criticisms of their successors. Clinton has never been one to follow rules, has he? This guy has always felt that he can say anything and do anything he wants to. Or as he put it, "...Because I could."

He again continues to lie as he did with his affair with Lewinsky. He states the Bush administration went at it "virtually alone and before UN inspections were completed, with no real urgency, no evidence that there were weapons of mass destruction," when talking about the Iraq war. We did not go at it alone. Ask the British mothers and fathers who lost their sons in this war, if they were helping the fight against Iraq? Ask the Saudi's the same thing. Ask the more than two dozen countries that helped. Is he primping for his "wife's" run for the Presidency? Does he not remember the UN inspectors were kicked out of Iraq by Saddam? Sure, he let them back in after a few years, but only on his terms.

Clinton talks about the "heroic but so far unsuccessful" effort to put together a constitution for Iraq. I'm sure the same things were being said of the United States when we put together our Constitution. What would he have done to make it a successful effort? What does he consider a successful effort?

He faults the authorities' for the failure to evacuate New Orleans ahead of the storm's strike. He is right here, but it is the mayor and the governor who should be held accountable. Pres. Bill is one of a group of people who don't believe the federal government should be in the bedroom, but here they believe the federal government should force people out of their towns. Let's say the federal government did force everyone out of the area and the Hurricane didn't hit the area. These same people would be complaining about the loss of income, and whatever else they could blame on President Bush they could come up with.

He says the previous FEMA directory always was there early. Come on former President; list the Major Natural disasters that he had to deal with. My question is still, why are we not holding the Mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of LA accountable? This is their city. This is their state. This is their responsibility! They have known for over a half century of the potential problem with the possibility of a Major hurricane hitting the New Orleans area. These two did have plans, but didn't follow them. Instead, they both tried to position themselves as the savior of this disaster. Since it did not turn out the way they hoped, they are pointing fingers at the federal government. This is like a person smoking in bed and falls asleep. The cigarette falls onto the sheets and causing the home to burn down. The person at fault for smoking in bed then turns around and sues the cigarette company for not warning him of the hazard of smoking in bed. Sure it's an extreme example, but it points out the ridiculous. The Democrats in particular like to blame others for the actions of some. At least Pres. Clinton didn't go as far as some of the black "leaders." Saying the break in the levee was a direct result of someone blowing up the wall in order to kill black people. This is so ridiculous, there is no proof. Maybe some creative lawyer should create a class action lawsuit claiming defamation of character of the Caucasian American.

Clinton continues to go on about the deficit and brings back the claim that the tax cut was only for the top 1 percent of American's. I'm not it the top 1 percent and I received my tax rebate. There is a whole group of American's that had their whole tax payment returned plus some. What did I do with my tax rebate? I went out and bought some new clothes. I didn't eat it. If I ate it, then it would have been a waste, but since I used it by purchasing a product, the money was put into the pockets of the employee that sold me the clothes. So, the tax cut was beneficial to several people and not just me.

I said it earlier in this blogging. The Clintons are very smart individuals when it comes to planning. President Clinton is setting up all these statements as points to use during his wife's run for the presidency. He is primping for his wife's run in 2008.

Hillary may have some more competition form Christopher Walken. Take a look at his official Homepage of the official 2008 campaign

President Bush fights back.

Listen, there are differences of opinion about the way forward; I understand that. Some Americans want us to withdraw our troops so that we can escape the violence. I recognize their good intentions, but their position is wrong. Withdrawing our troops would make the world more dangerous, and make America less safe. To leave Iraq now would be to repeat the costly mistakes of the past that led to the attacks of September the 11th, 2001. The terrorists saw our response to the hostage crisis in Iran, the bombings in the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the first World Trade Center attack, the killing of American soldiers in Somalia, the destruction of two U.S. embassies in Africa, and the attack on the USS Cole. The terrorists concluded that we lacked the courage and character to defend ourselves, and so they attacked us.

Who was in power during these attacks? The one and only President Clinton and President Carter.

It's like this. President Clinton spoke tough and did nothing. He would draw a line in the stand and see if the terrorists would step over the line. As they did, President Clinton would draw another line. With President Bush, He speaks tough and draws a line in the sand. When the terrorist steps over the line, President Bush slaps them in the face.

Who do you really want to defend you? Stick up for you? Do you want to stay a SuperPower or Super Powder Puff?
