Liberal hypocrisy


Mill Hall

Let me get this straight: An incumbent presidential administration spies on its opponent.

I know I have heard this before.

Yes, it was called Watergate.

Where are Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on this one? The wrong party did the spying this time for the mainstream press, that’s where!

President Nixon only tried to cover up for a handful of cronies trying to break into a file cabinet, but Obama used the Department of Justice, the FBI and the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. How big would this story be if the Republicans pulled this stunt?

Chalk up another one for liberal hypocrisy.

At least Nixon won the election.

Does anyone remember Sen. Ted Kennedy actually did collude with Russia during the 1984 presidential campaign by trying not to get Ronald Reagan re-elected?

Not much was said about this.

Yes, another one for liberal hypocrisy! But it didn’t work out too well as Reagan won 49 states. In case you forgot who Ted Kennedy was, he was the guy whom I who allege committed vehicular homicide when he left the scene of an accident and let a young woman drown in a Massachusetts River. In most states, people get jail time for a crime like that. But in Massachusetts, you become a lifelong senator. How about our friend, Democratic U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, who not long ago authored a bill to allow presidents to appoint FISA court judges without Senate confirmation, but who now won’t sign his own bill?

That’s right, one more for liberal hypocrisy. Holy Schiff, Batman! I see a pattern.
