President Bill Clinton Speaks Out On The MoveOn Ad

President Bill Clinton was on Anderson Cooper and he said the Republican’s outrage over the MoveOn ad about General Petraeus was “disingenuous.” “This was classic bait and switch, focus on that as opposed to focusing on what’s happened,” Bill Clinton said. He used campaign ads that targeted Democrats in the past as an example. “These are the people that ran a television ad in Georgia with Max Cleland, who lost half his body in Vietnam, in the same ad with Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. That’s what the Republicans did,” he continued. “And the person that rode to the senate on that ad was there voting to condemn the Democrats over the Petraeus ad.” “I mean, these are the people that funded the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. And the president appointed one of the principal founders of the Swift Boat ads to be an ambassador,” Clinton added. “But they’re really upset about Petraeus. But it was okay to question John Kerry’s patriotism on a blatantly dishonest play that had dishonest claims by people that didn’t know what they were talking about.” I guess it is easier to condemn than to do something productive. The Republicans are being a bit hypocritical on this one, and it is starting to show.
