Politics served up with a smile... And a stilletto.

And where do you see me making excuses for Bush? How do you like it when people put words in your mouth? Not very nice, huh.

Hmmm, let me read what I said again, no I don’t see any excuse for Clinton, and no mention of Bush and legality either. Oh I get it , you think I am a left winger, and are reading into what I said the talking points of the left. No, not so. My point was that you can’t justify the actions of Bush by the actions of Clinton, it is like saying Putin can justify his disbanding of opposition parties based on what Stalin did. Both presidents were well within their constitutional authority to appoint, fire, or move people around. That does not mean it is a good idea to use the Justice department as a political tool against the other party, that the “performance” of an attorney is to be judged on how many members of the other party are under indictment or investigation, or conversely how many members of your party are ignored for criminal behavior. Don’t worry I do not give the Democrats a free pass for deficit spending or earmarks because Republicans did it too.

No words about what an incredible hypocrite you are for excusing what Clinton did while calling what Bush did illegal? LOL! Indeed.

Clinton did it too, that makes it OK! Bring on the interns! That’s also OK now using this logic. This is great, a new rally cry for the Republican party! “If Clinton did it we will too.” LOL.

Nicely done, Rick. I took it from you and put it on my blog.

Well, that didn't take long. Nothing to see here, folks, just business as usual. Don't like the message? Shoot the messenger. That should take care of the problem, except for the stigma now surrounding "political" appointees, carried over to the next administration, and the next one, and the next one. Go ahead, defenestrate the executive. That can't possibly be a problem for future Democratic administrations, can it? If you scream loudly enough, the legal picks up the appearance of the illegal, which makes it off-limits. I can't see that being a problem in any way.

I am not a huge fan of Clinton, in spite of being both Proudly Liberal and a Democrat. Thsoe two DO NOT always go hand in hand mind you, inspite of waht teh talking heads want you to believe. Now, as I was saying, a disinterested and objective look at the two cases do show them to be different. Unfortunately you aren't going to find individuals willing to take that look very often. If the point of this article is to tell us that *gasp* political decisions are made for political reason then welcome late to the party. As with all details it's how you go about making those political decisions where in lies the Devil.

Sweet. Another great example of "Clinton did it too!" This is incredible news. So, Clinton did it and didn't get caught. Bush did it and did get caught. Now, what should we do about it? I propose that we ignore it. We've got terrorists to fight "over there." We don't have time for accountability "over here." The last thing we need to be concerned with is some "minor" politicization of the Justice Department of the United States. I mean, Clinton did it too. Should we go back and try to get him impeached for a second time? Maybe. If my beloved republicans could get their heads out of their posteriors long enough to get some actual legitimate votes, we wouldn't have lost the majority, and we wouldn't have to worry about oversight and accountability. Plus, we seriously need to bomb Iran.
