Clinton vs. the Right Wing Conspiracy

Former U.S. president Bill Clinton lost it recently on FOX news when interviewer Chris Wallace asked him some pointed questions about terrorism.

An enraged Clinton not only went ballistic but he tried to cow Wallace.

I wonder how everybody would be reacting if President George Bush had reacted in such a manner.

And I am not the only one. Over at, Academic Elephant (where do they get these names) was asking the same thing:

"I have to ask, if President Bush, Vice-President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld or even Secretary Rice jabbed a reporter with an angry finger during an interview, how long would it take for the cries of assault to start? Of course, none of them would ever indulge in such crass behavior, so the point is to some extent moot, but it seems to me that far from being so angry at Mr. Wallace for having the nerve to ask him some tough questions, Mr. Clinton might owe him an apology, not to mention some thanks for not pressing charges."

I guess there are different rules for Republicans and Democrats.

Nonsense. The Republicans have used plenty of sleazy tactics. Besides Clinton is a past president. I am sure if Bush Sr. did the same thing the reaction would be no different. In fact I am glad the Democrats are finally beginning to stand up to the nonsense of the Republicans.

The Republicans are the exact opposite of libertarian. They are big drunken spenders, yet love war and want to impose their moral values on others. A libertarian believes in smaller government, non-intervention abroad, and staying out of people's personal lives.
