I still love Bill Clinton. Any guy that can do the New York Times crossword in record time can be in my Oval Office any day. And Clinton post-bypass is fearless. Chris Wallace asks him why he didn’t ‘do more’ to stop Bin Laden. Bill lays him out – not just in tone but completely blasts every single question or insinuation Wallace comes up with. Bill trashes ‘wag the dog,’ FOX News, the neo-cons and the whole right-wing apparatus with deft control and point-by-point articulation.
God I miss well-spoken, articulate, intelligent leadership.
Wallace prefaces his question with "I got a lot of e-mail from viewers. And I have to say I was surprised, most of them wanted me to ask you this question. Why didn’t you do more to put bin Laden and al-Qaeda out of business when you were president?" This is the familiar ‘some say’ tactic. I’m not asking this because I want to know but because other people want me to ask it.
Wallace says they’d asked the Bush admin about the Cole bombing but: Vice President Dick Cheney has been on Fox News Sunday 6 times. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been on Fox News Sunday 9 times. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been on Fox News Sunday 23 times. And none of them were asked about the Cole bombing at all.
