Blast from the past

George W. Bush, 2000 election debate:

"I think the thing that discouraged me about the vice president was uttering those famous words: 'No controlling legal authority.' I felt like there needed to be a better sense of responsibility of what was going on in the White House. I believe that -- I believe they've moved that sign, 'The buck stops here' from the Oval Office desk to 'The buck stops here' on the Lincoln bedroom."

That was George W. Bush attacking Al Gore for using a White House phone to make a campaign call.

As opposed to using a political party's account for official Government communications.

And then "LOSING" them.
