Incredible Hypocrisy From GOP

(Click on pic for larger image)

Kay Bailey Hutchison

Kay Bailey is always ready to take a stand. Just what it is depends on who is in office at the time.
When President Clinton sent armed forces to Bosnia and took on the Serbs Kay Bailey was appalled. She was against "nation building" and crowed constantly about the lack of an "exit strategy."
When Bush attacked Iraq under false pretenses and started a war with no end in sight there has been nary a peep about "exit strategies."
When Clinton was under constant attack with fabricated charges and underwent impeachment she was adamant about trust and the rule of law.
Now the Bush White House is under ethical storm clouds she compares this to the Martha Stewart case!

Last Sunday(Oct. 23) Hutchison appeared on “Meet the Press. It was here she made the comparison to the case of Martha Stewart and her stock sale, “where they couldn’t find a crime and they indict on something that she said about something that wasn’t a crime.”
Ms. Hutchison said she hoped “that if there is going to be an indictment that
says something happened, that it is an indictment on a crime and not some
perjury technicality where they couldn’t indict on the crime and so they go to
something just to show that their two years of investigation was not a waste of
time and taxpayer dollars.”
Hutchison also said a possible perjury charge against any White House staffer is nothing more than a mere "technicality." But on Feb. 5, 1999, when considering articles of impeachment against President Clinton, Hutchison stated that it was important to prosecute for perjury because she was concerned that "grand juries across America are going to start asking questions about what is obstruction of justice, what is perjury. And I don't want there to be any lessening of the standard. Because our system of criminal justice depends on people telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."
