Clinton, and the loss of Presidental Propriety

Powerline has a great post showing President Clinton to be a partisian hack devoid of common civility,tearing apart his latest public attack on the present Administration.

There's nothing wrong with standing up for an idiology you believe in, but of late, it seems the only idiology of the Left is that President Bush is evil incarnate, and when you have the record of inattention to terrorism (World Trade Center bombing in 1993, the attacks on American embassies in Africa in 1998, the USS Cole bombing in 2000 to cite just three examples) that President Clinton portrayed in his term of office, it's particularly disingenious.

In their partisian fervor, it seems that the DNC and it's leading members have forgotten that we are all Americans first, and members of a political party second. The Left has excoriated President Bush as a divisive leader, but any openminded person with two functioning brain cells left can readily discern that, in fact, it's the members of the far Left that have created that division on strictly partisian grounds; unfortunately, it's the radicals that seem to have the loudest voice and the firmest hand on the controls in the DNC at the moment.

They are so sure of their control that they don't even bother to TRY to ensure that their statements are in fact the truth. Don't think so? In Clinton's Bush bashing he said:

"(the)Bush administration had decided to invade Iraq "virtually alone and before UN inspections were completed, with no real urgency, no evidence that there were weapons of mass destruction." (that "alone" must come as a real slap in the face to the 40+ nations that have risked their personnel in Iraq!)

Yet in a presentation of a foreign policy paper made before Democrats on July 23, 2003, President Clinton stated:

"It is incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons."

So either Clinton lied then, or is lying now, either way, he's proven himself a liar with his own words.

That he is breaking the long held tradition of past Presidents not commenting publicly on a current President's policies only proves that he has no concept of the delicate balance of civility that has to be maintained for our system to work.
Instead, he stokes the partisan fires to an ever greater blaze; and to do it at a time when we have men in harms way furthur compounds the damage he is doing in furthurance of partisianship.

Bill and Kofi didn't get what they wanted at the U.N. Summit, so now the gloves can come off with more Bush bashing. He and Hilary are Marxists and he'll do anything to regain Marxist-Socialist control of the Whitehouse whether it's the Clinton's or some other party hack.
