    I'd say somebody gave Bill a talking to. Not only is what he said a defacto critique of the current administration, its a critique of the reigning economic dogma.

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

      even if they made him walk it back.

          •  I refer to the doozies you posted in this (0+ / 0-)

            front page story (and elsewhere, IIRC):
            Eric Massa Goes There

            You flushed much of your credibility down the toilet with your numerous comments to that story.  

            (Though my memory was fuzzy; in skimming it again, it appears that in voicing your support for Massa's BS, your attacks on Rahm were quite explicit, and your attacks on Obama were more implicit, but I'm not sure you went after Pelosi.)

            Since you feigned ignorance of my previous question, I'll take the answer to be "no", you've not apologized yet.  Actually, "apologize" isn't what I meant.  It's not "have you apologized yet?", it's "have you admitted you were horribly wrong in throwing your lot in with Massa and demonizing the WH yet?"  That's closer to my intent of my original query.

    •  How is it a critique of the current administratio (0+ / 0-)

      n?  Is the current administration opposed to regulation?  Clinton said nothing about current adminstration policy.  Nor did he endorse far left economic policy (whatever it is this week).

      Your comment is exactly why Clinton issued his clarification, because he saw that folks like you were spinning it to bullshit.  I didn't blame the diarist, but I do blame you for continuing to spin even after the update.
