More Clinton hypocrisy July 4, 2007

I know I haven’t written much lately.  I’ve been doing other things. . .like building a treehouse for my kids and biking all over the region.  It’s been refreshing to avoid the Idiot Left.  Haven’t even looked at Myers in over a month, and it’s done wonders for my sanity.

Then Bush commuted Libby’s sentence.  This is NOT the same as a pardon.  Libby is still a convicted felon, he is disbarred and branded.  But Bush’s right to commute sentences is CLEARLY outlined in his executive powers.  Nevertheless, MoonBat John Conyers is going to convene hearings on this abuse of privilege.

Good luck with that.

I was going to comment that what Bush has done is little to no different than what Governor Swilly did right before he left office in 2001.  But, I thought it best not to comment, let the blog continue to simmer over the summer.

But then Swilly put his foot in his mouth.  Time to tear the covers off.

Former President Bill Clinton blasted his successor’s decision to spare former White House aide Lewis “Scooter” Libby from prison. . .

Mm hm.  Here we have a list of the pardons he gave on January 20, 2001.  131 pardons, not commutations.  So, Clinton can wipe out the criminal convictions of 131 of his cronies, but Bush simply eliminates the jail sentence for one of his own, and he is then branded a swine by Governor Bill.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Clinton.

I wish my wife had a memory like Bill Clinton’s. It appears that Bill is the pot calling the kettle black, but what else is new in the political world. It is comical that most of the poloticians take liberties, then point the finger at others when they do or get caught doing the same thing.

After reading such fine examples of corruption from the Clinton Admin.,Yes show the examples of the Clinton pardons then throw it up against Bush’s list.What he done may have been the final blow from most of his own base.But it still doesn’t compare to what Ex-President Clinton and his favors have done.The Clinton Family as a whole should be ashamed,and prosecuted.They have no room to point fingers at other politicans claiming foul .As a Independant voter,frankly I’am ashamed to have either family ever run for office again,really tired of hearing about all of the things they pull and the baggage they bring with them.

I would vote for Hillary Clinton simply because former President Bill Clinton is her husband. (He was a great President; however, I do not agree with all the pardons he was responsible for during his last days in office. I think it’s a travesty to pardon someone for a crimes committed…..you and I would spend time in jail for anything we did: I’m a middle class American.)

However, I think Bill Clinton was a great diplomat; he didn’t “go it alone” or box any country into a corner. He was well liked by most of the world and he handled things the best he could.

Bush 2 is nothing more than Cheney’s puppet. I wish George W would step up and do what he truly believes in. Cheney is the one who really got us into all these problems.

His father did…..I’m a Democrat and I think his father was a great President.

My 2 cents.

President Clinton response shouldn’t be shocking in that in his world he “did not have sex with that woman.” It is easy to make conclusions when the speaker has enough influence to control public opinion. There have been other leaders who have eliminated opposing viewpoints. Maybe the conclusion is Bush is in their way.

I cant believe you just wrote that. Amazing how many people still believe the lies that this administration is feeding you — go back to building treehouses and biking….

rterrazas. . .you like Clinton. OK. How does this relate to what I wrote?

Thomas A: Get out the Clozapine, you’re delusional. The Administration has fed me NOTHING; I simply compare Bush’s actions with those of Governor Swilly in January, 2001. Given what Clinton did, for him to get on Bush is serious hypocrisy. I’m not saying Bush is correct, only that Clinton is pathetic. If you can’t see that, get some glasses. . .take your meds and CLUE IN, DUDE!!!! Maybe you need to move OUT of the treehouse and into the real world. . .

demolition65. Typical right-wing nut. Blame it on the Clintons. Sheesh… it’s tired and perhaps you should just leave those delusional judgments high up in your treehouse and forget about them.

Bush is corrupt… much more the Clintons could ever dream of being. Bush destroyed a country, let a killer who attacked us go, tanked the US economy, appointed a bunch of lunatics to the bench setting back segregation, abortion rights and civil rights to the 1950s. We’re at the potential brink of a world war… and for what? He doesn’t have half the political skills of his Dad and even less than that of Clinton. Your Clintonian-bashing is old and cliche. Perhaps you an Anne Coulter can have Clinton bitch-fests up in your treehouse. Times are a changing…. Cheers!

JohnJohn, typical left-wing twitbat that can’t read what is placed in front of him. Any criticism of the Left, no matter how legitimate, is immediately dismissed as lockstep GOPSpeak.

CNN commentators are doing NOTHING to suggest that the Left is any more independent in its thinking than the Fundamentalist Right.

As for JJ’s list of horrors attributed to the BushAd, take a good look at it. Usual babble. And much if not all of it wrong. take the economy for example. How many quarters now of expansion and low inflation? Over 10 now? THAT’S screwing the economy? Try again, twitbat. Try thinking for yourself for a change.

First thing I thought when I saw this article on CNN was ” WhaaA?” Clinton, meet Pot…. pot, Clinton. Nice to see someone point out that one fact. Unbelievable that people can construe the simple statement of fact as Bush pandering.

Look people. Clinton pardoned an excessive amount of people during his final days in office, and him stating that the administration “believes that they should be able to do what they want to do, and that the law is a minor obstacle” not only smacks of hypocrisy, it is a glowing definition of it.

But I guess that’s okay…. because “the facts were different” Puh-lease!
