Democratic Lies & Hypocrisy!

This is just WAAAAY TOO Fertile a territory!

The Democrats come out against the "Scooter" Libby commutation by GWB. (His first right decision in months)

1st Fact.....

Libby was convicted of lying.....NOT exposing any CIA operative.......Lying. You know, the same thing a former Pres named Wet Willie Clinton (master of the soaked cigar) did before a grand jury, and for which he was never even charged...let alone convicted. Where's the Democratic outrage for this act?

2nd fact.....


"This decision to commute the sentence of a man who compromised our national security (compromised what???? He was NOT charged with this....read the facts Obama) cements the legacy of an administration characterized by a politics of cynicism and division, one that has consistently placed itself and its ideology above the law"

Hillary lives in a glass house & still throws stones????

"Today's decision is yet another example that this administration simply considers itself above the law," said Clinton of Bush's decision to commute Libby's sentence. "This case arose from the administration's politicization of national security intelligence and its efforts to punish those who spoke out against its policies.

"Four years into the Iraq war, Americans are still living with the consequences of this White House's efforts to quell dissent. This commutation sends the clear signal that in this Administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice.

John Edwards is on the same train.....

"Only a president clinically incapable of understanding that mistakes have consequences could take the action he did today," Edwards said. "President Bush has just sent exactly the wrong signal to the country and the world. In George Bush's America, it is apparently ok to misuse intelligence for political gain, mislead prosecutors and lie to the FBI."

What could be complete without the blathering along the same lines by Harry Reid?

"The president's decision to commute Mr. Libby's sentence is disgraceful. Libby's conviction was the one faint glimmer of accountability for White House efforts to manipulate intelligence and silence critics of the Iraq war. Now, even that small bit of justice has been undone."

I am missing an hysterical response from Skerry......he must be out skiing.

I guess my summation would be.....where were these folks when Sandy "Pants" Berger got a slap on the wrist for committing ??

The lies and hypocrisy demonstrated by the Democrats remain astounding......


UPDATE: How neat.....Little Duke was thinking along the same lines, and even had the AP guys for lunch!!!!!

Picked up my paper this morning to read about Scooter Libby and realized the AP is at it again. Ben Feller, AP reporter writing on the Scooter Libby commuted sentence story showed liberal bias both in what was reported and by what wasn’t.
In the first paragraph that I noticed describing the case, Mr. Feller planted this little gem. “Testimony in the case had revealed the extraordinary steps that Bush and Cheney were willing to take to discredit a critic of the war.” Really, Mr. Feller, and how did you get your hands on the Grand July transcripts and how come none of us have heard about that particular bit of testimony?

The last paragraph summed up the whole case. “The leak case has hung over the White House for years. After Plame’s name appeared in a 2003 syndicated newspaper column, Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald questioned top administration officials, including Bush and Cheney, about their possible roles.”

Excuse me Mr. Feller, why didn’t you add “The investigation must have been politically motivated as it continued long after Fitzgerald learned that Plame was not an undercover agent, thus proving that no crime was committed. Even the fact that Fitzgerald learned the real source of the “leak” was not the administration didn’t seem to matter to Fitzgerald.”

Mr Feller, could it be that these two facts might have made it appear that Bush was right to commute (and maybe should have pardoned Libby) and Libby was run over by an overzealous prosecutor.

If I were to guess, I would say that Ben Feller wasn’t trying to spin the story; it was just his personal viewpoint that got in the way of his writing. None the less, since an editor didn’t pick up on the omission of facts, I think it proves the bias at AP.

No, I’m not surprised…
