My Number One Boyfriend speaks! (Sorry, Anderson.)
Former US president Bill Clinton sharply criticised George W. Bush for the Iraq War and the handling of Hurricane Katrina, and voiced alarm at the swelling US budget deficit.
"What Americans need to understand is that ... every single day of the year, our government goes into the market and borrows money from other countries to finance Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, and our tax cuts," he said.
"We have never done this before. Never in the history of our republic have we ever financed a conflict, military conflict, by borrowing money from somewhere else."
Clinton added: "We depend on Japan, China, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and Korea primarily to basically loan us money every day of the year to cover my tax cut and these conflicts and Katrina. I don't think it makes any sense."
And how sad is it, that of all the Dems in the nation, we have to go to the one who can't be elected to anything again (well, unless he wants to run for Senate, I guess) to criticize the Boy King? Where are the party 'leaders'?? Come on, guys - he's UNPOPULAR at last! It's okay. (Wienies.)
