History Does Repeat Itself

When did they say this?

"You can support the troops but not the president"
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

"[The] President's once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy."
-Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning. I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area."
-Senator Trent Lott (R-MS)

"Bombing a sovereign nation for ill-defined reasons with vague objectives undermines the American stature in the world. The international respect and trust for America has diminished every time we casually let the bombs fly."
-Representative Tom Delay (R-TX)

Here's a hint...

"This is President Clinton's war, and when he falls flat on his face, that's his problem."
-Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN)

Answer: During the Kosovo Campaign, Clinton's war.

The cherry on the top...

"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."
-Governor George W. Bush (R-TX)
