Nero fiddled, Clinton ‘diddled’

Liberals say you can’t compare Clinton “diddling” his intern and lying to a federal judge about it to Bush lying about the war on terror. Bush was forced to take “action” by the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in history. Unfortunately, this has cost the lives of over 500 brave men and women of our armed forces.

Clinton, however, was offered Osama bin Laden twice on a silver platter, and now we know he was offered one of the terrorists who flew a plane into the World Trade Center. Slick was too busy taking care of his business in the Oval Office, playing with cigars, lying to a federal judge, and attempting to protect his legacy to bother with either.

Clinton’s “inaction” led directly to 9/11, costing the lives of over 2,500 innocent men, women, and children who died horrific deaths in the fiery destruction of the WTC. This terrorist attack has and will cost America billions and billions in rebuilding, homeland security, and war costs and led to “action” Bush had no choice in taking.

For once I agree with the liberals – there is no comparison. Nero’s legacy is he fiddled while Rome burned. Clinton’s legacy is he “diddled” while N.Y. burned.
