68. You need the reality check
Did you realize that Bill Clinton supported Gulf War I

I supported the gulf war, and supported being firm with Saddam Hussein, Mr. Clinton told reporters in Illinois on Tuesday, in one of several such remarks he made during the course of statements harshly criticizing Mr. Bush for his handling of Mr. Hussein and the war.

He made a similar statement during a March 1992 breakfast with Washington reporters, saying, I supported the Presidents policy in the Persian Gulf, and he used this stance during a televised debate last December to differentiate himself from his Democratic opponents in the Presidential primary process.

His reported statements in the weeks and months leading to the war were, in keeping with his statement today, much more ambivalent, and suggested a position neither precisely in support of nor precisely opposed to the use of force.

He does not appear to have taken a publicly reported position at all before Jan. 14, 1991, two days after Congress voted to give the President authority to go to war.

Did you realize those no fly zones were illegal, the ones that Clinton continued all throughout his terms? Yup, the UN never approved them and stated publicly they were illegal.

How about this:

June of 2003 - The United States fires 24 cruise missiles from two US Navy ships at an intelligence headquarters in Baghdad. Iraq claims eight people are killed in the assault. President Clinton ordered this attack as retaliation for an alleged plot to assassinate former President George Bush on a trip to Kuwait.
Didn't the Pentagon just release a report that there was no evidence to support that alleged assassination attempt?

Stop playing these gotcha games, they will get your candidate and Clinton's legacy long before they will get Obama.
