Keith Olbermann come back against Bush and media in defense of Bill Clinton

Keith Olbermann comments on Bill Clinton's Fox News interview

A textbook definition of cowardice

From his article, (link also has video):

The Bush Administration did not try to get Osama bin Laden before 9/11.

The Bush Administration ignored all the evidence gathered by its predecessors.

The Bush Administration did not understand the Daily Briefing entitled "Bin Laden Determined To Strike in U.S."

The Bush Administration did not try.

Moreover, for the last five years one month and two weeks, the current administration, and in particular the President, has been given the greatest “pass” for incompetence and malfeasance in American history!

After five years of skirting even the most inarguable of facts—that he was president on 9/11 and he must bear some responsibility for his, and our, unreadiness, Mr. Bush has now moved, unmistakably and without conscience or shame, towards re-writing history, and attempting to make the responsibility, entirely Mr. Clinton’s.

Of course he is not honest enough to do that directly.

As with all the other nefariousness and slime of this, our worst presidency since James Buchanan, he is having it done for him, by proxy.

Thus, the sandbag effort by Fox News Friday afternoon.

Consider the timing: the very weekend the National Intelligence Estimate would be released and show the Iraq war to be the fraudulent failure it is—not a check on terror, but fertilizer for it.

The one thing that the current administration prides itself at, political manipulation, may well be it's undoing. Manipulation only seems to work for a while and in short doses and with those who are easily misled. Constant manipulation is difficult for anyone to accomplish successfully, it's not really part of who we are, though it may seem to be. Seeming is not being, is it? Not last time I did a reality check.

Peace to all.
