"My fellow Americans... I've decided to bomb Iraq because Saddam is a bad guy. Oh, and since I called him out first, nobody else can bomb Iraq. Anyone else who bombs or invades Saddam is not justified and is wrong to do so because they're just not as cool as I am. Oh, and I almost forgot, I did not have sexual relations with that girl."
Well, maybe we can call him a Weasel, but he'd be sharing the name with Le Grande Weasel Jeac Chirac. Before Clinton came along the Democrats held the House and Senate. Since the Dems have lost nearly every ounce of power in D.C., Clinton has been credited with destroying his party. After reading the following quotes, I can see why. Matter of fact, I hope he continues to open his trap. We may be greatly disappointed with G.W., but remembering Clinton makes us feel a little better. Maybe he's trying to sink Hillary's campaign before it begins. Whatever happened to that shock collar she had on him?
Bill Clinton: November 16, 2005"The United States made a "big mistake" when it invaded Iraq."
Bill Clinton: December, 1998"Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors. Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States, and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world.
Bill Clinton: February 17, 1998"If Saddam rejects peace, and we have to use force, our purpose is clear: We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
Bill Clinton: February 17, 1998"We have to defend our future from these predators of the 21st Century.... They will be all the more lethal if we allow them to build arsenals of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the missiles to deliver them. We simply cannot allow that to happen. There is no more clear example of this threat than Saddam Hussein."

I remember that time period in 1998 very well. At that point in time we were all ready to go into Iraq, but Clinton again and again backed down.
No wonder nobody can find the WMD now - they've had years to hide them.
Whenever I see Jacque Chirac I get an endless stream of the Pink Panther theme music running through my head.
It's good for the blood pressure, though, which usually spikes whenever his smarmy mug appears.
