    You Take My Self, You Take My Self Control

    A guest on CNN's "Larry King Live" last Wednesday offered President Bush some
    wise and mature counsel:

    *** QUOTE ***

    Look what President [Hugo] Chavez just said about President Bush. You know, we--and we try to teach our children to get over it. I mean, you've got kids. You know, one of the most important things you can teach a child is that not everything that happens to you will be nice. But you are in control of how you respond to everything that happens to you. You do not have to respond with violence or anger or hatred or bitterness or demeaning conduct, and you cannot be diminished by what someone else says about you.

    *** END QUOTE ***

    There's no indication that Bush needed this advice, but it's good advice nonetheless. And the man who gave it speaks from experience. He is Bill Clinton, 42nd president of the United States.

    One man who could use Clinton's advice is... Bill Clinton, 42nd president of the United States. Yesterday he appeared on "Fox News Sunday http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,215397,00.html ," where host Chris Wallace asked him the question he said was most on viewers' minds: "Why didn't you do more to put [Osama] bin Laden and Al Qaeda out of business when you were president?"

    Clinton responded with anger and hatred and bitterness and demeaning conduct--though not with violence, so he's 1 for 5. He repeatedly interrupted Wallace, wagged his finger at him (oh, for the good old days of 1998), invaded his personal space, and offered paranoid theories as to why Wallace was asking this perfectly reasonable question. It has to be seen to be believed, and it can be, here http://www.foxnews.com/video2/playe...ed Discussion&acc&Politics&298&News&942&&&new

    I'm beginning to think that liberals either can't or don't ever step back and take a good look at what they say and do. Conservatives appear to be able to trash Bush with ease.

    I was referring to the repeated theme of hypocricy--on this thread and the Rangel thread.

    So you were disagreeing? Or you don't recognize when someone is agreeing with you?

    I was referring to the fact that liberals don't appear to relect upon anything they say. Hence the hypocrisy. They just say things and dont feel as if they should be held accountable. It appeared as if you were just stating that they never give him any credit when he is right.
