Bill Clinton did a bad thing. He deceived us. He lied about an extra-marital affair to his wife, the American people and to the court. His conduct in this affair and with his lies was reprehensible and immoral. Once confronted by his lie, he apologized to his wife and the American people.
George W. Bush did a bad thing. He deceived us. Months before the attacks of 9/11, he formed a group called “White House Iraq Group,” staffed it with his closest advisors and the highest officials of his administration, and gave it the mission of selling an unprovoked and illegal war against Iraq to the American people. His actions led to an invasion and occupation, resulting in the deaths of 2000 of our soldiers, injuries to thousand more, deaths of 200,000 Iraqi soldiers and citizens, and the expenditure of hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars. His war alienated our allies, emboldened our enemies and destabilized an already volatile region. Mr. Bush’s conduct in this affair and with his lies was reprehensible and immoral. So far he has offered no apologies.
Can you believe there are Americans naïve enough to have actually trusted Bill Clinton?
