“Clinton supporters contend that the firings of the 93 US attorneys and the seven Travel Office employees were the right of the Clinton administration because anyone appointed to such positions serves at the pleasure of the president. This is true. It is also true that the eight US attorneys fired by Gonzalez served at the pleasure of the current president.
That the Democrats choose to start this obvious battle is very telling indeed.” [emphasis mine, not Pam’s]
What is telling to me is the level of hypocrisy the Democrats are willing to display quite blatantly. Clearly they have misunderstood the 2006 election results entirely and are under the impression that life as they knew it “BN” (before Newt) with all the cronyism, dishonesty and deals-under-the-table, running the U.S. government as they deem comfy-cozy without regard to law or ethics. Of course, this very incestuous relationship also flourished before their buddy Al Gore invented the Internet.
The absolutely stunning contempt for the intelligence of this nation’s voters – which in some venues is justified but in most is not – is blindingly evident. But then, throughout the 20th century in particular, they’ve managed to get away with it so often, they probably feel they are invulnerable. To say that the Democrats have become tone deaf is to sugarcoat matters.
There is one thing that life has taught me. When someone feels they are bullet-proof, that’s when they start making fatal and stupid mistakes. The Democrats believe they are Teflon-coated and that can and will be their downfall, if we are alert enough and unyielding enough to expose their dishonesty and corruption.
