There's nothing new, shocking or even especially telling here. Anyone who's paid the slightest attention knows that Clinton believed that. Would also know that he's been pretty supportive of Bush through this whole Iraq ordeal.

Now ... What's your point?
everything bad is clinton's fault, everything good is...dr hoo

... a result of Bush's fine leadership skills.

Isn't that clear?

I mean really, Clinton had no clue about anything. Why back when he was being impeached he tried to distract everyone from that with a "wag the dog" trick of blowing up some tents in a country that no one ever heard of. I mean really, like Afganistan was any threat! Silly Clinton, the right wing saw through THAT trick.

Yesterday I heard the Bush talking about how much of a glowing success No Child Left Behind is. It's "through the looking glass" time in America, and our CURRENT leader bears a striking similarity to the Red Queen. But as long as it's all about Clinton, that doesn't matter, does it?

the way each side can do no wrong and the other side is always wrong is amusing to watch. I like how seemingly out of nowhere there is all this right wing support for immigration suddenly. A week ago, all you would hear from any true blue republican was that any illegal alien should be shipped back to wherever they were from and we should seal our borders to all far'ners.
I know that the Bush immigration plan is going to be 100%bboc

pandering, some kind of corporate givaway, or just the oppisite of what it is publicized to do. Why? Because it makes sense to me, and nothing King Bush has ever done has made sense to me.

And DB is correct, its amazing how the whole right wing does an about face to support the King.

but at the same time I want to give Bush credit for tackling the immigration problem, something needs to be done.

Oh, and I'm all for the manned missions to the moon and Mars.

So despite the fact that I can't stand Bush's demeanor and holier-than thou, tough-guy approach, and the fact that I disagree with him on almost every social issue and the fact that I think he has squandered the post-911 standing that the US had in the international community and mis-managed most of the war on terror, I'll give him credit for doing something on immigration and the space program. After all even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while :)

"Why back when he was being impeached he tried to distract everyone from that with a "wag the dog" trick of blowing up some tents in a country that no one ever heard of. I mean really, like Afganistan was any threat!"

Just before the impeachment vote, Clinton ordered "Operation Desert Fox".

Over four days, we fired over 400 cruise missiles. We and the British flew over 650 air sorties. No U.N. resolution, no attempt at an international coalition. Just a good old fashioned, unilateral bomb fest. All because of WMD.

Clinton's reaction?

"We have inflicted significant damage on Saddam's weapons of mass
destruction programs, on the command structures that direct
and protect that capability, and on his military and
security infrastructure,"

Headline of that article? "Clinton Says 'Mission Accomplished'"!

But my point (and I think 94Noles') isn't Clinton = Bad, Bush = Good. It's to point out the hypocracy of the "Bush Lied About WMD" crowd.
