ClintonRage: The morning after

On Fox and Friends this morning, Chris Wallace had some interesting comments about his interview with the Finger-Jabber:

His reaction to Clinton accusing him of having a “smirk:”

“What it was was sheer wonder at what I was witnessing.”

Heh. On what happened after the interview:

“There was no making up with him. He was angry. And when he left, he chewed out his staff.”

The Finger-Jabber. Always, always blaming someone else for his failures.

Noel Sheppard at The American Thinker weighs in on “Bill Clinton, Bin Laden, and Hysterical Revisions.” Howard Kurtz does a brief take on Clinton’s finger-wagging moment.

Our take on Slick Willie’s Day of Rage is here.

Scott Johnson at Power Line:

The most striking feature of Bill Clinton’s bloviations on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace yesterday was the incredibly low ratio of facts to whoppers. If Chris Wallace could prompt that red-faced response with such an innocuous question, I wonder if a few minutes with Richard Miniter (author of Losing bin Laden, interviewed by NRO here), might not send him to intensive care. I would love to hear Miniter ask Clinton a few questions about Clinton’s treatment of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center — an attack that Clinton shrugged off in a few paragraphs of his subsequent Saturday morning radio talk, never to return to the subject. (Miniter quotes the relevant paragraphs of the radio address at pages 28-30 of his book.)

Ronald Cass at RCP minces no words:

Presidents often find it hard to leave the stage. The day of Bush’s first inauguration, Clinton lingered for hours at Andrews Air Force base trying to hang on to the attention he had so enjoyed as President. He still seeks the limelight.

But desperation to be noticed after leaving office, to have the respect and affection Clinton craves, isn’t a substitute for doing the right thing when in office – any more than lies are a substitute for honesty, or indecision a suitable alternative to moral courage.

On the golf course, Bill Clinton is known for his dislike of playing his ball where it lies, scoring honestly, and taking his lumps as the rest of us duffers must. He makes his own score, always a good deal better than the real number.

Someone else should be trusted to do the scoring when it comes to Clinton’s time in office. In the history books, he deserves to be counted as the President who did not protect us against al-Qaeda, who left the impression they could attack us without penalty, whose wasted opportunities contributed to the travesty of 9/11.

Tough talk now should not be allowed to obscure that fact. Lies now should not go unanswered.
