Discussion of politics and other odious things

Wednesday, July 04, 2007


(Via Instapundit) is this column about the hypocrisy of the Dems that are condemning Bush.
Pelosi had a much different understanding of fairness, justice and the importance of upholding the law back in 1999, when Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 imprisoned members of the Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN. The House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a resolution of disapproval, but Pelosi said she would have voted no had she been present for the tally. Pelosi was thus defending Clinton’s commutations of sentences received for seditious conspiracy, conspiracy to make bombs, bank robbery and illegal possession of stolen firearms, among other things. Between 1974 and 1983, FALN mounted numerous attacks against this nation’s police and military, killing six people and maiming many others.
Yep, this affair has (once again) shown that many on the left can't see any further into an issue than Bush's involvement. Once they get there, they run around and scream and bring no further analysis to an issue. Some self-awareness of this would go along way towards seeing them as trustworthy on big issues.
But...shouldn't we be asking the Bush administration (every administration really) to be better than the Clinton one?
