Brian Zimpfer fails to mention a few things in his April 20
letter to the editor. He starts by saying that it did not take
Clinton four years to fix the recession he inherited. However, he
leaves out the fact that he did not have to deal with the worst
terrorist attack in American history, and the two wars that
followed. Then he goes on to say that the president has not “fixed”
the economy, which is completely untrue (tax cuts work!).
Zimpfer needs to know that while Clinton is not completely
responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, he is responsible for
restricting the CIA and FBI’s ability to do their job adequately.
These restrictions may have made it easier for the terrorists to
carry out the attacks. Like so many people, he also fails to
realize that Iraq is part of the war on terrorism. Finally, he goes
on to say that Bush owes us an apology, which shows that he is
hypocritical. He did not say that Clinton needed to apologize for
the first World Trade Center bombing (which he does not), the
bombing of the USS Cole, or the embassies in Africa. Should we have
demanded that Roosevelt apologize for Pearl Harbor? Under Zimpfer’s
fuzzy logic we should have.
