...and makes up some stuff for good measure.
From Today's News Journal: I see and hear in the media that the Democrats are now criticizing the Bush administration for not sending sufficient numbers of troops to Iraq. Do they not recall that the Clinton administration reduced the level of our military by 40 percent across the board?
The Clinton administration also decimated the intelligence community by 50 percent. In a war on terrorism, intelligence is more vital than in conventional warfare.
We reap what you have sown, Democrats.

Now I can understand being a freaked out wingnut right now. Bush has finally been fully exposed a corrupt liar. His Secretary of Defense is completely incompetent and every day this administration is allowed to stay in power is another day of happiness and contentment for our enemies. And yet, as bad as it may seem for Bush lovers right now, do they gain anything by flat out lying and making things up about Clinton? I tend to doubt it.
For the record here is some CNN from January 24, 2000WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A proposed hike in defense spending by President Bill Clinton is not presidential politics but rather the first step in fulfilling last year's pledge to add $112 billion to the defense budget over six years, Pentagon officials tell CNN.
When Clinton unveils the federal budget next month, Pentagon sources tell CNN, he will propose spending $291 billion on defense, a hike of more than $18 billion and nearly double last year's increase.
