Clinton Accuses Wallace of "Conservative Hit Job"

Apparently the Bill Clinton interview on Fox News Channel is even juicier than the clip available on the You Tube video.

Chris Wallace asked the former President if he felt he'd done enough to go after Bin Laden. Clinton accused Wallace -- who is often "fair and balanced" but could hardly be considered a conservative -- of doing "a nice little conservative hit job" in their interview.

Clinton ranted: "I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked why didn’t you do anything about the Cole." (The Cole terrorism occurred during the final three months or so of the Clinton Administration.) He then repeatedly went off on Chris Wallace to "tell the truth," asserting that Wallace has not asked these kinds of questions of Republicans and that he needs to "be fair." He accused conservatives of a "disinformation campaign" about whether he did enough to combat terrorism.

He also said to Wallace: "And you’ve got that little smirk on your face. It looks like you’re so clever..."

Wallace obviously struck a very raw nerve.

Clinton also accuses Karl Rove of some sort of national security conspiracy: "Every even number year right before an election they come up with some security issue."

OK, Mr. Clinton, I'm sure Karl Rove invented the London airline terrorist plot just for the sake of the 2006 campaign...

When Wallace asked, "Do you think the White House and the Republicans want to make the American people afraid," the former President responded "Of course they do."

Bill Clinton was the most self-involved, immature, and narcissistic President in our nation's history, and this interview shows once and for all that he's deluded and irresponsible as well.

Think Progress has the transcript.
