Carol Platt Liebau: Brace Yourself

Brace Yourself

The House Government Affairs Committee is preparing to release a report that details Jack Abramoff's dealings with The White House.

Not surprisingly, the Democrats are trying to use the report to resuscitate the "culture of corruption" claims that were chilled by Rep. Jefferson's freezer. While they're at it, they might want to look into the stench of corruption surrounding Democrat Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and Congressmen Mollohan and Conyers, as well.

But don't expect the press to pursue those claims with the same vigor. After all, Chuck Schumer's NRSCC has behaved with borderline criminality, to conspicuous silence.

Instead . . . be ready. The press will be trotting out Democratic "scandals" and talking points with discouraging regularity from now until Election Day.

I believe that the voters are tired of hearing about the, "Culture of corruption" and will yawn at this story also. You can only cry, "The sky is falling"
so long, before our ears get dull
of hearing it. This story won't register even a blip on the radar screen.

As a conservative, even I can admit that it seems that "scandals" just roll off this President like...to use the Southern vernacular..'water off a duck's back'. One can see that, to an angry lib, Bush looks very much like the "Teflon Don".

In this case, however, one main thing springs to mind...perhaps the scandals don't stick because...he's not guilty ?? (GASP!) What a concept in the post-Clinton years !

Washington was frequently called a dolt, a coward and a moron. Lincoln was accused of being a secret "Colored" person, or having a black mistress (Gasp).

Great persons rise above these pedestrain insults as our current President does. However lets look at his predecessor - The press tried their hardest to clothe him in decensy, however he is what he is.

We are very lucky!
