When Will Republicans Learn: BushClinton Hurricane Relief?
Clinton on “This Week”
Watching Monday night football. (Come ON ‘Skins!) For real entertainment value, I should let the Dude live-blog this (What? What? C’mon challenge that call!)
But me, I’ve gotta go for the political angle.
And I’m really irritated. The ad flashes across the screen: BushClinton Hurricane Relief. . .
Did they come up with this one while Karl Rove was in the hospital too? I’ve got to challenge that call.
Seriously. When will Republicans learn?
Bush gives Clinton serious political real-estate with the BushClinton byline. And what does Clinton do?
He covers the Sunday talk shows yesterday with criticism of the Bush Administration. “Well, in my administration. . . ”
Former President Bill Clinton, asked by President Bush to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, offered harsh criticism of the administration’s disaster-relief effort on Sunday, saying “you can’t have an emergency plan that works if it only affects middle-class people up.”
Mr. Clinton’s comments in an interview on the ABC News program “This Week” could prove awkward for the White House, given President Bush’s eagerness to involve his Democratic predecessor in a high-profile role to raise money for the hurricane’s victims.
I’m surprised Bill didn’t rip open his dress shirt to display his “Hillary 2008” undershirt.
When will Republicans learn?
UPDATE: No way. Now they are interviewing President Clinton about the hurricane relief effort at halftime.
