Clinton TV interview energizes GOP, Dems
In the exchange with Wallace, the former president contended that, unlike him, the newly installed Bush administration ignored bin Laden until the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. "They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try," Clinton said in the interview broadcast Sunday. Clinton also attacked Wallace for a "conservative hit job" by asking about his administration's failure to get bin Laden. President Bush did not respond directly to Clinton's charges at a news conference Tuesday, saying, "I've watched all this, you know, fingerpointing and, you know, namings of names and all that stuff. Our objective is to secure the country." Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice challenged Clinton's claim that he did more than many of his conservative critics to pursue bin Laden and accused the former president of leaving no comprehensive plan to fight al-Qaida. On the Democratic side, party chairman Howard Dean praised Clinton for taking on "the right-wing propaganda machine." Sen. Clinton, often mentioned as the leading Democrat for a 2008 run, said her husband's fire will help Democrats as they try to take control of the House in November. "I think my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take these attacks," the New York senator, who polls show is headed for easy re-election, said Tuesday.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE NOW??? If I wanted to watch a tennis match, I'd turn on the sports channels. Is there nothing better to argue over? Nothing better than to blame? Nothing more important to discuss or worry over????? I'm going to quote one of my own posts, which had a link leading to something James Lileks said:
Just so you know: 9/11 reset the clock for me. All hands went to midnight. I’m interested in what people did after that date, and if the movie shows that before the attack one side lacked feck and the other was feck-deficient, I don’t worry about it. It’s like revisiting Congressional debates about Hawaiian harbor security in November 1941. Y’all get a pass. The Etch-A-Sketch’s turned over. Now: what have you said lately?

You know, these issues always get me worked up. Right after Sept. 11, 2001 you could not find a liberal who wanted to blame the President and his administration for the attacks. Partially because it was to soon after the Clinton administration had left office and secondly, nobody wanted to hear about who's fault it was, just what they were going to do about it. Now, as in the last Presidential election, liberal left wingers are stiring up the @#$% trying to lay blame on an administration for failing to do in 8 short months what THEY failed to do in 8 years. Poor Chris (Hit Man) Wallace asks a simple direct question of Bill Clinton and Clinton unloads both barrels on him. Who really orchestrated the "hit job" here? The bottom line is, the TERRORISTS studied our weakness, the TERRORISTS found vulnerability, the TERRORISTS planned the attack and the TERRORISTS executed and succeeded in attacking us in a horrible way. Thousands of people died an as far as I'm concerned EVERY politician who uses the events of Sept. 11, 2001 for political gain, dishonors all those who died as well as every American soldier who has fought to right the wrong since then. They should all be hanging there heads in shame for doing so. Americans are not to blame here! So lets unify and proceed in kicking the @#$% out of the terrorists. nuff said?
