It was only a matter of time before former President Bill Clinton started taking shots at President George W. Bush. The NY Daily News is reporting that Clinton “drew standing ovations” for criticizing Bush ["Bill blasts 'political mess' by W"] . Clinton called Bush’s tax cut “wrongheaded” and reportedly said:
We need to be creating a world that we would like to live in when we're not the biggest power on the block.Ugh. Bubba, you are correct, to a point. “King George” W. is totally out of control. And frankly, if I had my choice between a predator-in-chief like you and the power mad W., I would pick Ralph Nader. But the economy started its downward trend during your last term and the collapse of the “dot-cons.” You and your greedy Wall Street swindlers have as much to do with the current state of the economy as Bush and his craven oil barons.
However, the larger point is this: Please just go away! You have done enough already.
And what is this crack about someday being the only superpower? If and when we are no longer the only superpower, we will only have you to blame. You gave away the store – secret technology, trade incentives, encouraging factories to bolt to the slave wages of China, decimating our economy … to the communist Chinese government? Disgusting. Some day, our soldiers will be at war with the Chinese – over Taiwan or some other Asian excursion – and you will to be to blame for every soldier’s death. We will never forget what you did.
