David Gregory Slams Both Clintons for Bill’s Iraq War Flip-flop
There was a truly fascinating event on Sunday's "Meet the Press" that could definitely have lasting meaning on the 2008 presidential campaign.
Not only did host Tim Russert bring up former President Bill Clinton's flip-flop on his support of the Iraq war, but also NBC's David Gregory said, "It's a reminder of what some people who don't like Hillary Clinton don't like."
Maybe Bill shouldn't have complained about how his wife was treated by Russert and Gregory during the October debate in Philadelphia.
Bill Clinton, one of the best campaigners in the history of American politics, an asset to the Clinton campaign, this week, even members of her own, Hillary Clinton's campaign staff got upset. He went out on the campaign trail and offered these comments about the Iraq war.
Russert then played the video clip of Bill saying, "Even though I approved of Afghanistan and opposed Iraq from the beginning," and after which showed a quote of Bill's from May 18, 2003: "I supported the President when he asked the Congress for authority to stand up against weapons of mass destruction in Iraq."
Moments later, Gregory stated:
Well, the question is what is the answer to what a lot of Democrats don't like about George Bush? You know, the certainty of George Bush, or the stubbornness of George Bush? Is the answer what a lot of critics of the Clintons say, a Clintonian way to approach issues, sort of too cute by half, a little calculating? And that's what his appear, his answer appeared to be on the Iraq war. It's what her answered appeared to be on the driver's license questions in the debate in Philadelphia. So, it's a reminder of what some people who don't like Hillary Clinton don't like.
