Richard Viguerie: Liberals Cry Crocodile Tears on LibbyThis fuck is betting we forget that back in the spring of this year his panties were in a wad because Bush was "abusing" The Constitution.
(Manassas, Virginia) The following is a statement by Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of Conservative HQ.com and author of Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, regarding the reaction of the news media to President Bush’s commutation of the prison sentence of Scooter Libby:
“Political liberals and their colleagues in the media have gone into orbit over President Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison sentence and are shedding enormous amounts of crocodile tears.
“No one should be shocked by this outrage from the Left. Twenty-four/seven attacks on the commutation are all about the 2008 presidential election.
“This is an exact replay of President Gerald Ford’s pardon of Richard Nixon in 1974. By a constant drumbeat of attacks on Ford for the Nixon pardon, they knew they would damage him politically in the 1976 presidential race. And of course, their plan worked perfectly.
“Everyone should be clear that the attacks on Bush and Libby are not about whether or not the prison sentence should have been commuted. This assault is an early artillery barrage to damage the Republicans and elect a Democratic president and Congress in 2008.”
