Democrats Suddenly Care About Perjury and Justice

I’ve tried my best to stay out of the whole Scooter Libby affair. It just didn’t interest me, but I knew that the story would only get bigger when Libby was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice. As expected, President Bush commuted his 30-month prison sentence and Democrats started flying off the wall as if Bush just coddled a serial killer.

That Democrats are so determined to see Libby in a prison cell for committing perjury and obstruction of justice is quite interesting considering that these same Democrats were the ones who reduced themselves to the mantra: “it was just a blowjob” when beloved President Clinton committed perjury and obstruction of justice.

Libby lied to a grand jury about what he told reporters before Valerie Plame’s name was revealed. Clinton lied to a grand jury about his sexual relationship with Monica Lewinski. No one’s comparing the two cases, but it’s undeniably true that President Clinton committed the same crimes. But he never faced jail time; Republicans just wanted the liar out of office. Libby lost his job and got a prison sentence.

Democrats were outraged over the Clinton impeachment and his subsequent disbarment. Sure, it was perjury and obstruction of justice, but he was just trying to protect his family that he didn’t so much care about when he was being pleasured by a White House intern.

Libby (not the president by a chief of staff to the vice president) didn’t give federal investigators the right names and because of that Democrats want him rotting in prison for two and a half years.

MoveOn.org, one of the most influential liberal political action committees, was established in 1998 to defend President Clinton for committing perjury and obstruction of justice. Today, they’re fuming with rage because someone who isn’t President Clinton was spared for committing perjury and obstruction of justice.

It’s time to cut the rhetoric.

  2. Clinton got blowjobs. Bush’s vice president and his staff conspired to leak classified information in order to hurt someone who provided evidence that didn’t support the war on terror.

    You can’t have a double standard between two different crimes. Your argument fails because Cheney and Libby actually ARE evil!
