What is it about some folks...

… that when they shake their fingers at us, they arouse our suspicions? But as I have said umpteen times on this blog, what people … anyone… did before 9/11 is of scant interest. What they did and do after 9/11 says everything. Those still playing the blame-game over 9/11, whether Republicans, Democrats or whatever, should get over themselves and start keeping their eyes on the ball – live in the now, as the shrinks say. We have a continuing crisis on our hands. Deal with that – not what happened in April 2001. (That includes Clinton. A man as intelligent as he is should know to keep his mouth shut. Qui s’excuse, s’accuse, as the French say. What he should tell his party, including his wife, is to come up with some concrete plans how to handle Ahmadinejad, et al. Bush bashing just doesn’t cut it, as the American public is evidently making clear. Time to come up with an actual program. And that’s not just for the benefit of his party. We are in a serious situation vastly transcending partisan politics.)
