You know things are bad when ... Bush falls back on Clinton

In an effort to assert legitimacy for his policy in Iraq, President GW Bush during a joint briefing with Mexican President Vincente Fox told reporters the following:

“The stated policy of my administration toward Saddam Hussein was very clear,” Bush said. “Like the previous administration, we were for regime change.” [Emphasis added]

The difficulty with this position? The previous administration was the Clinton Administration. Clearly President GW Bush doesn't feel that the justifications articulated during his own tenure are sufficient any longer to convince skeptics without citing the support of the previous Democratic President's administration policies.
