Former President Bill Clinton is none too pleased with former Vice President Dick Cheney's constant attacks on President Obama over Iraq and other foreign policy issues:
“Mr. Cheney has been incredibly adroit for the last six years or so attacking the administration for not doing an adequate job of cleaning up the mess that he made," Clinton told NBC News' David Gregory. "I think it’s unseemly.”

“And I give President Bush, by the way, a lot of credit for trying to stay out of this debate and letting other people work through it," he added.

And how did the dick respond?
“If there’s somebody who knows something about unseemly, it’s Bill Clinton,” Cheney said, as quoted by the Billings Gazette.
Okay, I'll give you a choice: You can have a president who created millions of jobs, reduced inequality, and kept us out of wars, but had his share of personal failures, or you can have a guy who didn't have those personal failures (at least not publicly), but shrunk the economy, expanded inequality, and got us mired in two wars that are haunting us to this day.

If that's a tough question for you to answer, you really need to rethink your priorities.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
