If This Had Been Bill Clinton, Entry No. 471

Whenever Bush supporters complain that liberals "hate" Bush and are just looking for reasons to criticize him because of our "hate," I like to reply: Would you say the same thing if the same criticism was made against President Clinton?

The main answer is silence, of course, which is fine because I know the answer. We witnessed eight years of lies and distortions about Clinton from the right-wing media and Republican party. Heck, they made a humongous deal about Clinton getting a hair cut on Air Force One. He and his administration could make no comment or take no action without the right-wing nutbags acting as if the world had just ended.

Doubt me? Then read this and ask yourself how Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Tom DeLay or any of those knuckleheads would be acting if Clinton had spent most of his first nine months in office on vacation, and while on vacation had ignored the importance of a memo that said Osama bin Laden wanted to attack the US using planes as weapons, just weeks before OBL carried out said attack.

So, how does Dubya respond to a video of terrorists threatening worse attacks against the US?

Come on, you know the answer.
