I wonder if he really thinks this makes him look tough.

Giuliani Criticizes Bill Clinton

Associated Press Writer
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday accused former President Clinton of not responding forcefully enough to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing or later terrorist attacks.

The former New York mayor criticized Democrats, accusing them of weakness and naivete in dealing with terrorism. Giuliani made the comments to about 650 business, corporate and political leaders at Regent University, the conservative Christian college founded by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson.


Giuliani argued that Clinton treated the World Trade Center bombing as a criminal act instead of a terrorist attack, calling it "a big mistake" that emboldened other strikes on the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia, in Kenya and Tanzania and later on the USS Cole while docked in Yemen in 2000.


Last September, however, Giuliani defended Clinton's record amid political bickering over which president - Clinton or George W. Bush - missed more opportunities to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks.

"The idea of trying to cast blame on President Clinton is just wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don't think he deserves it," Giuliani said during a stop in Florida. "I don't think President Bush deserves it. The people who deserve blame for Sept. 11, I think we should remind ourselves, are the terrorists - the Islamic fanatics - who came here and killed us and want to come here again and do it."

Paddy, you and the other bloggers here and everywhere are documenting these hypocrisies, flip-flops and lies. And even the occasional print journalist. So are Stewart, Colbert and Olbermann.

We know now that our candidates (or at least their surrogates) are reading these blogs, reading friendly journalists and watching our TV.

If we don't hear these enjoinders during debate or in campaign ads, we're going to have to make sure we all yell loud and strong.
