Dem's hypocrisy triggers gag reflex

For awhile now we have heard that there has been only one person convicted of the law Karl Rove is accused of braeking since it has existed. I guess somebody started wondering what ever happened to that guy and did a little digging. We are now reminded that this person was among the last minute pardons Bill Clinton handed out like candy before leaving office.

At the time there were conservatives that wanted to bring attention to the shady characters that Clinton pardoned, but the Dems would have no part of it. So Dem #1 pardons a man who revealed a covert CIA agent and the other Dems just go along with it. Suddenly, the Dems are concerned about this type of action when it is the hated 'architect'.

My expectation of both parties is consitency. If it is wrong for a Dem it is wrong for the GOP and vice versa. If someone is offended when the other party does something, they better be offended when someone of their party does the same thing. If not offended when someone of their party does something, don't trigger our gag reflex by suddenly being offended when the other guys do it.

    So you aren't offended by either leak, or you are offended by both and think Karl Rove should NOT be pardoned like the Clinton guy?

    And, do you have a link to a story about the Clinton outing?

    The link is:

    If Rove is convicted and found guilty of a crime I would be offended if Bush pardoned him. No such crime has come close to being proven yet so the focus of my post was how the Dems viewed a man who was pardoned for breaking the law they are accusing Rove of. Clinton pardoned the action and the rest of the Dems were silent.
