Quote Of The Day

Howard Dean apparently said this with a straight face:

"If you think what’s going on in the Middle East today would be going on if the Democrats were in control, it wouldn't, because we would have worked day after day after day to make sure we didn't get where we are today. We would have had the moral authority that Bill Clinton had when he brought together the Northern Irish and the IRA, when he brought together the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Isn't seeing the words 'moral authority' and 'Bill Clinton' in the same sentence a little jarring? My speculation is that psychotropic drugs are responsible for his Israeli/Palestinian remark.

Its all george bush's fault. Didn't you know that?

It is objectively true that if Al Gore had been elected in 2000 we would NOT be where we are today.

But what words are sufficient to describe the foolish stupidity of men such as Dean?

These come the closest that I have heard:

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.

Even genius has its limits.

Stupidity is infinite.

One word... Oslo.

We had to go to Iraq, and... Iran is Iran, and North Korea is North Korea because of Clinton(D)'s apathy.

Posted by: DANEgerus at July 17, 2006 10:13 AM

dean is right. does anyone remembner this happening when clinton was in office?

the current situation is the resutl of bush's negligience of the israeli palestiian conflict over the last 5 years.

That Howard Dean is a real hoot! ...ha

Lester,

Yeah, and the problems between Israel and Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Egypt, etc., all ended for eight years and suddenly restarted in late January 2001. Bill Clinton got them all to get along, and then along comes cowboy Bush to stir up all this hatred of Israel that had completely gone away for eight years.

Iran and Syria are the problem and have never officially declared peace with Israel since 1968. They were simply waiting for the right time to attack and the right time seemed to coincide with a deadline for Iran to stop trying to obtain nukes.

If Clinton had been President, North Korea would not have nukes and China would not sell missile to Iraq to send to Lebanon either right?

Get F*ing real. Don't even try that partisan shit. Let's face reality, the Muslim world hates Israel and was never going to stop until they are gone from the region. We and our policies have not a damned thing to do with it. Israel's existence does. And until they cease to exist, this war is going to continue. Dean is an idiot. This is not something that going to the principle's office and shaking hands and saying I'm sorry is going to cure.

Let's be nice to Lester. The concept of cause and effect - coupled with time lags and other mathematical things - are not friends of liberals. Remember, they actually think that Bush's inaguration started the 2000 recession. Numbers are most definitely not their friends.

yeah bush has done so much diplomacy over there. who can forget him going in to arafats compound to deliver peace initiatives in person, or touring south lebanon to see the effects of the years of civil war? he hardly ever has time to ride his bicycle.

One of the big neo con talking points used to be how arafat rejected israels offer at camp david. that was Clinton's deal. You figure people who use the guys handiwork in one of their figures of speech would be a little more respectful.

Clinton would have done a better job. 9/11, katrina, and here. like reagan and unlike bush he was a self made man not a coked up loser riding on his daddy's coat tails all his life.

"...the current situation is the resutl of bush's negligience of the israeli palestiian conflict over the last 5 years."

Perhaps with another year or two of enlightened, benign neglect, the Isrtaelis will have solved the Hezbollah problem permenetly, and we will have no need to continue to revisit it every few years.
