Here's a Laugh

I'm reading the Post this morning, when I come across this story...Democrats Criticize Bush For Saying DeLay's Innocent. Bush was asked on Fox News if he felt DeLay was innocent, and he said yes. Afterwards, Pelosi, Reid, and Schumer, (Curly, Larry, Shemp?) had fits, calling it jury tampering.

Wait, isn't this the party that introduced a resolution, based on DeLay, criticizing the "culture of corruption"? Hasn't Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader in the House, basically called DeLay guilty of these charges, before a trial?

How the Democrats can say with a straight face that the President's comment amounts to jury tampering, while ignoring their own comments amuses me. Maybe they have an inferiority complex. Maybe they feel since they don't control either chamber of Congress or the White House their words don't matter. Let's look at some of those comments:

"The criminal indictment of Majority Leader Tom Delay is the latest example that Republicans in Congress are plagued by a culture of corruption at the expense of the American people." — House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California

"Today, the state of Texas is doing what the Republican-controlled federal government has failed repeatedly to do, which is to hold Republicans in Washington accountable for their culture of corruption."
— Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean.

"The criminal indictment of Tom DeLay is the first chink in the armor of corruption that has so clouded, consumed and controlled the Republican majority over the past few years," — Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y.

So, if President Bush is guilty of jury tampering, should the folks above also admit guilt?

I think it just goes to show how desperate Democrates are becoming. Their grasping for anything to turn the political tide back into their favor. Unfortunately (or fortunately, as I like to look at it!) it's only making them look like even bigger losers.
They really are their own worst enemy!

They really are a bunch of asstards to be focusing on this shit instead of how to get back some seats *and* the White House! It actually does piss me off cuz I don't want the conservative social agenda pushed in my face, but the dems are impossible to support when they're such stupid jerks.

Hmmm I believe the Dems do need to admit some guilt. All the president said was he believed Delay to be guilty. They had all sorts of logic and cutdowns and whatnot...if THATS not jury tampering well I dunno what is anymore.

They wonder why stuff like the white flag video gets made. They make it easy, make the comments they did, then bitch about the President mentioning him. I think their own words will kill them in 2006.

Paula, while I don't want a liberal agenda pushed on me, you are correct, there are better ways to win seats back than looking like idiots and obstructionists. All they need to do is ask Tom Daschle how well that worked.

Democrats are innocent by virtue of being Democrats.

All Republicans are guilty of being Republicans.
