The New York Times gives us this..and says its news? Please, this crappola isn't news..except for the fact that the Democraps are finally fallling out of love with Mukasey after the last day of his nomination hearing when he sidestepped the waterboarding/torture issue. I hoped he was toast. Oh, and I love this line from the White House flunky:
''As he always does, Judge Mukasey will answer all questions from the Judiciary Committee in a clear and forthright manner,'' said White House spokesman Tony Fratto
Give me an effin break..are they all stupid or do they think we are? This craptastic nonsense is on my last nerve. Mukasey was side stepping questions with ease, he seemed to be a pro at it.
But the Dem's are talking in code lately..the only one coming out and saying he won't vote to confirm Mukasey is my beloved Bernie Sanders. Chuckie Schumer looks like an idiot at this point since he was the Democrat that suggested Mukasey. In case you didn't catch Mukasey's dancing moves regarding torture..let me give you part of the transcript:
''It is not constitutional for the United States to engage in torture in any form, be it waterboarding or anything else,'' Mukasey answered at one point.
But during terse questioning by Whitehouse, Mukasey said he did not know if waterboarding is torture because he is not familiar with how it is done. '
'That's a massive hedge,'' Whitehouse responded incredulously. ''It either is or it isn't.''
''If it amounts to torture, it is not constitutional,'' Mukasey answered. ''I'm very disappointed in that answer,'' Whitehouse said. ''I think it is purely semantic.''
I saw the video of this exchange..and I just shook my head in disgust. The man is a Bushie through and through. My only question is how many Dem's will vote to confirm this asshat.
