NEWS FLASH>> Bill Clinton Says Bush Wrong on Kyoto

The article states that Clinton is "a champion of the Kyoto Protocol". Really? If he was such "champion" of Kyoto, would it have killed him to spare an ounce of political capital trying to convince Congress and the American people that the protocol wouldn't have dire economic consequences, as he now claims? Do any of his Democratic defenders in the Senate share his view? If so, why did every one of them vote against ratifying the treaty back in 1998 on the grounds that it would cripple the US economy?

I never understood what Clinton's agenda was when he was in office. It seemed like the only thing he knew how to do was grandstand against GOP proposals, instead of coming up with any of his own.

He is now flip flopping more on issues than he did when he was in office, and that's saying A LOT.

Maybe he's hoping a clever mix of revisionism and selective amnesia will help scrape the tarnish from his legacy.

I'd say this latest load of garbage about being a "champion" of Kyoto ranks right up there with his post-9/11 claim that fighting terrorism was his administration's No. 1 priority. Riiight...

Terrorism, his number one priority? As a young adult through his entire administration, I can attest to the fact that he never so much as even mentioned terrorism, unless it related to Northern Ireland and his feeble attempts at winning a Nobel peace prize.

The only thing he cared about was talking about how great his (non) economic policies were. Trust me, I was forced to see him on TV for eight years straight, while in College parts of the time, as he loved attention and the camera.

Eddie! Give the man a little bit of credit. Didn't he bombed a baby milk factory in sudan in his fight against terrorism?
