"It's just stupid, Stupid."

Former President Bill Clinton just won a grammy for "the spoken word." He certainly didn't win it for his impeccable logic.

The subject is Bush's tax cuts "for the rich." Clinton tells the story of a young soldier who gripped his hand in a crowd and said: "I'm probably the only man in my company who wishes you were still president." (Probably so.) The man is missing a limb and four of his comrades were killed in a roadside bomb. Clinton wishes he could give as much for his country, and claims President Bush's tax cuts have "deprived us [rich people] of the opportunity to help fight terror these last four years; he is not letting us sacrifice like that brave military soldier." (paraphrase)

I'm gagging.

Can someone tell me who's stopping Mr. Clinton from writing a check to Uncle Sam right now?

No one, that's who.

But apparently 1) he's so greedy he won't part with money unless government takes it from him by force, 2) he thinks everyone else is just as greedy and he should therefore take their money by force, 3) he knows people aren't greedy but knows they still won't choose to give government more money, and/or 4) he's willing to exploit soldiers and say disingenuous, stupid things to make government bigger.

Isn't that just like the liberal elite?

marsha, has an interesting quote from Charlie Rangle, the US Representative from Harlem.

He says that Clinton is just a 'redneck' that Hillary tied herself to because she could make something of him.

And how do you go from the war in Iraq to tax cuts for the rich (read: middle class) in one breath? This guy is amazing, isn't he?
