Bill Clinton: Words really matter
Former President Bill Clinton's comments about the Tea Party have prompted a war of words with Rush Limbaugh.
The conservative talk radio host took issue with Mr. Clinton's comments on the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing.
He compared the anti-government rhetoric of 1995 with the Tea Party rhetoric now.
"The words we use really do matter because there are, there's this vast echo chamber. And they go across space and they fall on the serious and the delirious alike. We can't let the debate veer so far into hatred that we lose focus on our common humanity," Former President Bill Clinton said.
"With this comment, you have just set the stage for violence in this country. Any future acts of violence are on your shoulders, Mr. Clinton," Rush Limbaugh said.
Clinton gave an exclusive interview to ABC's Jake Tapper for the show "This Week".
He said there should be a lot of political dissent, but it shouldn't demonize elected government officials.
