Re-writing history - Incumbants versus Predecessors

A common theme of the politics over time is the practice of incumbents rewriting the history of their predecessors in order to justify or excuse current policies.

Take your time with these clips; they run about 20 minutes in total.

Here is the controversial interview on Fox where former President Clinton defends his record and clarifies facts and issues against the Bush revisionists.

Here is the Olbermann commentary of this event. It's a long and articulate attack on the unfair ambush of former President Clinton by a media outlet known for toadying to the right wing in power.

This happened in the US. And you know it never happens here in this country.

Or in this province.
