Run on Fear, Run in Fear

Really, is he just this scared of ex-President Clinton? Bush is the leader of the most powerful nation in the world, right? What's he afraid of? That he's not as popular? That Clinton will just tell the truth, which really throws Bush off his game?

"Bush-administration officials privately threatened organizers of the U.N. Climate Change Conference, telling them that any chance there might’ve been for the United States to sign on to the Kyoto global-warming protocol would be scuttled if they allowed Bill Clinton to speak at the gathering today in Montreal, according to a source involved with the negotiations who spoke to New York Magazine on condition of anonymity.

Bush officials informed organizers of their intention to pull out of the new Kyoto deal late Thursday afternoon, soon after news leaked that Clinton was scheduled to speak, the source said..." More.

I think they are afraid of him. Clinton brought down the deficit, didn't get us involved in any wars (Kosovo was just), and many people were pretty happy under his administration. Schools improved, jobs improved, the budget was balanced. Then Bush comes in and the country goes to hell. That makes Clinton a powerful symbol, especially when they think his wife may run for the presidency. The more Clinton is seen in the spotlight, the more chance Hillary has at winnin gbecause people will think, "Look at all the experience she has behind her," plus what she's done on her own in NY, which is nothing to sneeze at if yo've been paying attantion. Elections are coming ever clorser, and the Bush Administration has to start looking at Clinton as an adversary.

Besides all of that, Clinton and Bush don't even come CLOSE to aggreeing on what should be put forth in Kyoto. Clinton wants it signed, Bush doesn't, so Clinton's speech would undermine Bush's authority, which is something the people want, but I can't see how it would be good for the shrubbery.

It's just another in the long line of their attempts to stifle any voice of dissent. For all its warts, Clinton's record exposes shrubco's as the failure it is. He's done nothing right. Even a clock that is stopped is right twice a day.

I bet Clinton would have had Bin Laden by now, the same way they caught the first WTC bombers and convicted all of them.

Hey, Wasn't it Shrubco nemesis Patrick Fitzgerald that prosecuted Ramsi Yusef and convicted that whole bunch.

Anyway, these scumbags hate to have the light of truth shine upon them. It hurts them light a vampire. Bwahaha....
