Lieberman can't bring himself to hold Hastert accountable
Joe Lieberman on Clinton/Lewinsky '98.
In choosing this path, I fear that the president has undercut the efforts of millions of American parents who are naturally trying to instill in our children the value of honesty. As most any mother and father knows, kids have a singular ability to detect double standards. So, we can safely assume that it will be that much more difficult to convince our sons and daughters of the importance of telling the truth when the most powerful man in the nation evades it. Many parents I have spoken with in Connecticut confirm this unfortunate consequence.
Lieberman on Foley/Hastert cover-up in 2006:
"Right now I'd say this thing is spinning out of control, it's become another partisan frenzy in Washington, that's the wrong way to go at it.During a partisan right-winged attack on Clinton (remember Ken Starr) Joe Lieberman had no problem being the first Democrat to criticize Clinton but he can't bring himself to utter a word about Dennis Hastert's role in covering up the perverted actions of Mark Foley.
Let's go back and take a look at Hastert stumbling through his lies earlier this week.
Will Lieberman hold George Bush or any of his ANY Republican friends accountable for anything?
