Clinton - Hypocrisy Party of Many?

Well, the barking moonbats are foaming-at-the-mouth over the commutation of Scooter Libby's prison sentence. Why aren't we surprised? We aren't.

However, the amusing part is watching the 'hissy fits' that some people are having over it, specifically a certain Senator that's running for President of the United States of America.

And the better portion of it is that there's an opportunity for education in it.

Here's another lesson in the meaning of the word hypocrisy:

Clinton Slams Bush Over Libby Maneuver

KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) - Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton drew a distinction between President Bush's decision to commute the sentence of White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby—which she has harshly criticized—and her husband's 140 pardons in his closing hours in office.

"I believe that presidential pardon authority is available to any president, and almost all presidents have exercised it," Clinton said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "This (the Libby decision) was clearly an effort to protect the White House. ... There isn't any doubt now, what we know is that Libby was carrying out the implicit or explicit wishes of the vice president, or maybe the president as well, in the further effort to stifle dissent."

Now here's where the distinction of the definition comes into play:

Pardons Granted by President Clinton (1993 - 2001)

Take a look at the sheer quantity of pardons....especially on Clinton's last day in office - all 140 of them. Does Mark Rich ring any familiar bells...? Hmmmm?

Are we seeing the educational benefits from such a public display of hissiness?

Class dismissed.

UPDATE: Well, it's nice to hear some good stuff coming out of the White House:

White House Criticizes Clintons

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Thursday made fun of former President Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, for criticizing President Bush's decision to erase the prison sentence of former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

"I don't know what Arkansan is for chutzpah, but this is a gigantic case of it," presidential spokesman Tony Snow said.

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has scheduled hearings on Bush's commutation of Libby's 2 1/2-year sentence.

"Well, fine, knock himself out," Snow said of Conyers. "I mean, perfectly happy. And while he's at it, why doesn't he look at January 20th, 2001?"

In the closing hours of his presidency, Clinton pardoned 140 people, including fugitive financier Marc Rich.

The former president tried to draw a distinction between the pardons he granted, and Bush's decision to commute Libby's 30-month sentence in the CIA leak case.

"I think there are guidelines for what happens when somebody is convicted," Clinton told a radio interviewer Tuesday. "You've got to understand, this is consistent with their philosophy; they believe that they should be able to do what they want to do, and that the law is a minor obstacle."

WTF is this, another way of defining what the definition of the word is is....?

Face it Slick Willy - you've been called to the carpet....again for your 'innocent deeds' in the final hours of your presidency. You will, in fact, never ever live your deeds and actions down....not for years or decades. In fact, they will be talking about you in high school civics classes well into the 22nd century.

And do you know the funny thing about it? ('Funny' meaning 'weird' or 'obvious', not 'ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha' funny) My kid is only 12-years old and she sees your hypocrisy plain as day....

UPDATE II: There's some sort of glich with the commenting component of my blog, so I'll 'hard code' this response to a troll who left some droppings in the comment box a few days ago.

Clinton commited adultery. Libby committed treason.

Wrong - BOTH lied under oath during a federal investigation. And as far as I know, Libby lied as to whether he knew something versus NOT knowing something and got tripped up in it. To wit: he got caught lying about nothing specific....he broke the law in a non-specific technicality.

Consider what you are backing up for a minute. Are you one of those magical 30% - the fanatical few who ignore facts in order to further the men who represent you the least?

Nope - I'm one of those 'magical' I-don't-believe-squat people.

You are not rich.

This is irrelevant, but you're right....I'm not rich.

You don't know anyone who is rich.

Very presumptuous of you to say that - for all you know, I might have *several* stinking rich friends....

You are protecting the wealth of less than 5% of this country to help you preserve the dream that someday, you will be one of them.


These people hold themselves above the law.

So do MOST politicians - just look at the Kennedy family....

Why are you cheering?

Dear Mr. Simpleton - if you actually read the post, you'll see I'm not cheering anything - just pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of what Hillary was saying about the communing of Libby's sentence as compared to the 140 last-minute pardons - yes, PARDONS - executed by her *cough* husband on his last day in office.

You are one of those people being ground into poverty. Is this the life you want for yourself or for your family?

Thanks for your concern - it's obvious to see in your string of polite back-handed insults....

These people shit on the military.

Opinion on your part. Now the opinion on my part is that people like YOU shit on the military.

Where is your tax breaks?

Got my $400 check really quickly when they were cut & sent out.

Your healthcare?
Paid for out of my pocket because the last time I checked, the government wasn't responsible for it; IMHO, you're thinking of a dreamworld where the government is supposed to pay for this crap...

Your security guaranteed for service?

Huh? What?!? Did I miss something here? Oh, you're thinking that I should be sucking the government for everything it's worth out of the Veteran's Administration? Oh, well in that case.....I'm not. I believe that the VA has more than enough people to take care of without my leeching off of them. You should go right ahead and suck some money out of them and feel good about doing it because you feel 'entitled'....

You're quick to shout out "barking moonbat", but the person you're punishing is yourself and your own.

You're right - I *am* quick to shout 'barking moonbat' because all that you've attempted to say here is 100% inline with that 'group-think' mentality they love to exhibit. As for punishing myself and my family, you don't know WTF you're talking about and if you did know, you'd probably assert that it's someone else's fault for your not knowing and for the reason you had to be clued in by someone else.

So okay - you're now free to comeback with an Easter basket full of non-related rebuttals and weak-minded charges from years ago that I should immediately refute and/or disprove.

Come on.....let's have it Might Mouse.

And why not put a REAL name and e-mail address instead of garbage....what's the matter - afraid to put a person with the amusing bile you like to leave everywhere? My dear sir - THAT is the true mark of a troll.

Mr. Troll, if you have trouble leaving more nuggets of wisdom then feel free to e-mail them to me.....if you're brave enough to actually allow me to see your e-mail address.

Bad News

...the bad news is that I broke my glasses the other day while cleaning them off; broke them right at the section where the frame holding the right-eye lens meets the nose piece. And it really, really sucks walking around the house squinting at everything.

The good news....is that my wife reminded me that I have not one, but TWO sets of contacts that I got a few years ago and stopped wearing because of minor eye infections. So now after I got them out and cleaned them thoroughly, I have better vision then when I was wearing glasses - especially my peripheral vision. The only downside is that I have to 'plug in' my contacts in the mornings when I first wake up if I want to see everything.

July 4, 2007

TWO hundred and thirty-one years ago, fifty-six men signed their names to this document and in doing so, commited themselves, their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to backing up the words written on it.

If what they hoped for failed to become true - severing all ties with their previous 'mother' nation and create a new, independent nation, then these men would surely face the gallows for their impudence. But as we now know today, they didn't fail.

You can read a clear transcript of the Declaration of Independence here.

Just a quick note from me and my family to the blogsphere saying Happy Independence Day!!
