    The first 6 years of Obama's term were blamed on Bush...so logically everything in the first 6 (at least) of Bush's term is Clinton's fault, no?

    Yes, in some ways better, and in someways worse.

    Hey, if you can show me documentation that Clinton was irresponsible in anything leading up to 9/11, I'll not deny it.

    Clinton made regime change in Iraq official US policy.

    Get over it dude.

    There is a fair chance that for the third time in my life, 2 of the candidates I will be able to vote for will be named Bush and Clinton.

    To me that is a sign of a dysfunctional voting system, intellectually bankrupt.

    He did? Show that to me, and it will be near the top of the list of complaints I have with him.

    "Today I am signing into law H.R. 4655, the "Iraq Liberation Act of 1998." This Act makes clear that it is the sense of the Congress that the United States should support those elements of the Iraqi opposition that advocate a very different future for Iraq than the bitter reality of internal repression and external aggression that the current regime in Baghdad now offers. Let me be clear on what the U.S. objectives are:
    The United States wants Iraq to rejoin the family of nations as a freedom-loving and lawabiding member. This is in our interest and that of our allies within the region.
    The United States favors an Iraq that offers its people freedom at home. I categorically reject arguments that this is unattainable due to Iraq's history or its ethnic or sectarian makeup. Iraqis deserve and desire freedom like everyone else.
    The United States looks forward to a democratically supported regime that would permit us to enter into a dialogue leading to the reintegration of Iraq into normal international life.
    My Administration has pursued, and will continue to pursue, these objectives through active application of all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. The evidence is overwhelming that such changes will not happen under the current Iraq leadership. . . ."

    The Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 is a United States Congressional statement of policy calling for regime change in Iraq.[1][2] It was signed into law by President Bill Clinton, and states that it is the policy of the United States to support democratic movements within Iraq. The Act was cited in October 2002 to argue for the authorization of military force against the Iraqi government.
