Quote of the Day - Eric Holder Edition Part 2

“If you want to have this legal conversation, it all has to do with your state of mind, and whether or not you had the requisite intent to come up with something that can be considered perjury or a lie, the information that was provided in that February 4th letter was gleaned by the people who drafted the letter after they interacted with people who they thought were in the best position to have the information.”

Eric Holder's defense of the letter given to congress that contained wrong and misleading information.  

Hmm, it would seem that they never gave this kind of benefit of the doubt to President Bush on the Iraq war.  They just insist that he lied.

When you have no moral compass, these things are easy. When the other guy DOES have a moral compass, it is easy to take a human failing and call him a liar and a hypocrite.

They had to destroy Bush when he showed a glimmer of leadership. The end of Liberalism is a foregone conclusion, it is just a question of when. Had Bush fought back with the same vigor with which they slandered him, Liberalism would be all but dead and buried. The citizens of the Unitedd States are hungry for a leader. If one does not step up for good, we get whatever fills the void. This is why I am so disappointed in Paul Ryan. History called out to him and he said, "no". There may not be another shot for him.

His kids are still very young. I respect him so much for not wanting to put them through the rigors of a national campaign, especially when they are not mature enough to understand the ugly things said about their daddy is politics.

I have this thing about parents of young children running for President. I just think it is very unhealthy for the kids.

In normal times, I would agree. But these are not normal times. The country and the world are in dire straights and real leadership is needed. I think Ryan would have been that guy. But the current crop of republican clowns and the #Occupier in the White House are two sides of the same Big Government coin. The full-court press is on and I don't think we have the team to deal aggressively with it.
