Whacking the President

The Ex-President, that is.

Both the NYSun and the NYPost whack Bill Clinton for his extremely non-Presidential behavior yesterday in Dubai in calling the Iraq War "A Big Mistake".
It has long been accepted that former presidents do not publicly criticize their successors, particularly when it comes to foreign policy; certainly the first President Bush held his tongue when it came to judging Clinton's dubious foreign-policy performance.
Each editorial points out that this is part of the tag-team tactics of the Clinton team. While Hillary holds firm on her pro-war stance, Bill fondles the anti-war crowd.

Two, two, two bints in one.

UPDATE: Today the WSJ weighs in by coopting the recent Bush strategy for dealing with hypocrites Democrats, by using their own words to point out the hypocrisy of their current position.
