Bill Clinton didn't botch this joke

By

Now Bill Clinton is joking about War on Terror. John Kerry is not the only Democrat joking about the war on terror these days.  News director Jon Gibson, KKNT—AM in Phoenix, played the audio tape of Bill Clinton speaking these words on the campus of Arizona State University last night:

"Republicans will have you believe that Democrats will tax you into the poor house and that you'll meet a terrorist around every corner and trip over an illegal immigrant on the way there."

Clinton, unlike Kerry, did not "botch" the joke because the assembled crowd roared with laughter. Terrorism warnings are something to laugh about for this crowd. But they are "serious" about the war on terror and want the American people to trust them to fight it effectively.

Why one would want the likes of Clinton and Kerry to return to power in Washington is baffling in these, the most dangerous and consequential times for civilized societies in the face of Islamic terror aimed at establishing a global caliphate.
