Did President Bush I Criticize President Clinton?

Yes! And while Clinton was in office. The claim made by some, such as Brit Hume, that this never happened is just plain false. Media Matters has the details: Here's my summary.

And I'll bet Media Matters missed a few cases. For the documentation and details, see the Media Matters post.

I'm not claiming that Clinton didn't deserve criticism for some or maybe all of these things. My claim and that of Media Matters is that there is not some kind of a tradition that former presidents do not criticize current presidents as I have heard in the media from time to time. It's high time Clinton began speaking out against the current President and his ideological cronies. My real question is, "Why didn't he do it sooner?"
