I do not really care what happens to Obama, but I would like to point out a glaring inconsistency in the reasoning of some members, and people in
general. First of all it seems that taking any legal action in landmark cases, which this would be if charges were brought against Obama, usually has
a lot to do with precedents. The inconsistency I mentioned is that there are so many Republicans railing against Obama right now, and I want to know
where this opposition was when Bush was in office?
They cannot tell me it is not about political affiliations. They cannot tell me it is about right and wrong. It is NOT. This was made readily apparent
over the past couple of decades when Clinton faced impeachment for "lying," as the Republicans so often said, despite the fact it was a personal
incident and was really no one else's business. Okay, so a Democrat is in office, and the Republicans rally for impeachment based on the fact that he
apparently lied about what happened. This is all they could get him for really, since he did not really break any other laws worthy of impeachment.
Okay, so then we get a Republican in office, Bush Jr. It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the entire Iraq WMD fiasco was concocted by
Bush and other members of the government, and that when Bush made the various announcements regarding WMD's in Iraq, he had prior knowledge that this
was not the case. THAT seems like a pretty serious offense, and far surpasses the "lie" that Clinton told. My question is where were the Republicans
who wanted to "do what was right?" They said nothing because Bush was a conservative. Plain and simple.
And now, to prove what I am saying, we have Obama. A Democrat in office, and we see the same Republicans lashing out. Has Obama done anything worse
than Bush? Nope. Obama simply continued what Bush started, so if Obama goes down, Bush should go down first. So where is the precedent for punishing
presidents who lie to the people, who use their power for bad things? And I have already told you why this is happening...It is a Republican push
against the Democrats, and has nothing to do with what Obama did or did not do. If that were the case, we would have seen the same thing with Bush.
The truth is that the Democrats are not as notorious for pushing legal action against a president from an opposing party. This is just another example
of Republican "morality" at its finest.
