Jack White: “Bill Clinton needs to shut up.” Good luck with that, but here’s a little more if you need it:
I wish that when President Bill Clinton started spouting off the other day about the need for President Barack Obama to intervene in Syria’s horrific civil war or risk looking like “a total fool,” Obama had followed the example set by his wife when she was recently confronted by a heckler. I wish that Obama had leaped from his bully pulpit, got in Clinton’s face and silenced him with a withering put-down.
But of course, that didn’t happen. Instead of resisting the intensifying pressure from political enemies like Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and ostensible allies like Clinton to take the first steps down the slippery slope to another quagmire in the Middle East, Obama caved.
Of course he caved.
