Presidential Hypocrisy

Tuesday, Apr. 03, 2007 6:42 PM

When George W. Bush was campaigning against Vice President Al Gore, one of the criticisms was that Gore would, 'say one thing and do another.' For example, Gore offered to abstain from attack ads if Bush did the same; Bush never accepted the offer, so when an attack ad came out, he countered with the above.

When President George W. Bush was campaigning against Senator John F. Kerry, the same tactic was dusted off and put into play. Kerry was a flip-flopper, someone who couldn't be counted upon to be true to their word.

So I'd like to know why, after the GOP harshly criticizes Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for wanting to go to Syria, Republicans dash off this past weekend to meet with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

And I'd also like to know why Mr. Bush criticized the Democratic-majority Congress for wasting time on vacation � and then promptly popped off to Crawford, Texas to clear some brush.

That still leaves Mr. Bush insisting that he's all about supporting the troops, but threatening to veto the bill which the Democratic-majority Congress delivered to his desk, but which isn't to his liking because it, well, requires accountability instead of continuing to throw good money after bad.

Good gods, even the Iraqis recognize a publicity stunt when they see one, with further criticism about Senator John McCain's heavily armed stroll through the marketplace being dismissed as a media opportunity.

The snipers moved back in after McCain left.
