Where are all the Republican voices that were so loud when Bill Clinton stood before the camera and lied to the American people?
There seems to be a belief in moral relativism in the Republicans’ view of President Bush’s behavior.
Bush stood before the camera and told the American people that he would not stand for the leaking of classified information. He also said he would remove anyone from his administration who was involved in such behavior.
When it became clear people in the administration were involved in leaks, he softened his position on their removal.
Now we know the president himself was leaking classified information.
We are now given some tortured logic that it is not a leak of classified information if the president declassifies and leaks it.
Are we also supposed to believe it is not a lie if the president says it’s not a lie?
