    Apparently Democrats are starting to notice something about Bill Clinton that Republicans and conservatives have been pointing out for at least 16 years: The man tells lies. A lot. So much that it can accurately be called "a habit".

    Apparently as long as those lies were in support of the Democrat party, they were OK. But now that Clinton is spouting his usual BS against some members of the Dems (those who oppose his wife), now suddenly it's "pretty troubling".

    Sorry, Barack. Live by the fib, and you die by the fib. Something the Democrats (all of them) will have to adjust to in the coming months.

    It's a supremely ironic form of justice, though, that Clinton has never been called to account for his more routine whoppers, until Democrats called him on it themselves. Reporters routinely laughed such accusations off as partisan finger-pointing (a responce that allowed them to duck the issue of whether Bill's words were actually true or not)... until they noticed that Democrats were the ones complaining about Bill this time.

    What will the press do now???

    EXCLUSIVE: Barack vs. Bill: Obama Hits Ex-Prez Over 'Troubling' Attacks

    Vows to 'Directly Confront Bill Clinton' Over 'Statements That Are Not Factually Accurate'

    (Reuters) Jan. 20, 2008

    Sen. Barack Obama says he's ready to confront former President Bill Clinton, calling his advocacy on behalf of his wife's presidential campaign, "troubling."

    In an exclusive interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts to air Monday on "Good Morning America," Obama, D-Ill., directly engages Bill Clinton on a series of issues.

    "You know the former president, who I think all of us have a lot of regard for, has taken his advocacy on behalf of his wife to a level that I think is pretty troubling," Obama said. "He continues to make statements that are not supported by the facts -- whether it's about my record of opposition to the war in Iraq or our approach to organizing in Las Vegas.

    "This has become a habit, and one of the things that we're going to have to do is to directly confront Bill Clinton when he's making statements that are not factually accurate," Obama said.

    Watch the full interview on "Good Morning America" Monday at 7 a.m. ET.

    Obama was apparently referring to Clinton's comment that it was a "fairy tale" that Obama has consistently opposed the Iraq war from the start, and that Nevada union officials backing Obama were strong-arming members into caucusing for Obama.

    You know the problem is severe when even a Democrat notices it.

    I would suggest Obama be careful how he dissed Bill. I think most Dems would frown on that.
