You haven't been paying attention. The Democrats blast Bush with the same frequency the Repubs attacked Clinton. There are two big differences. One, the media loves Republicans and hates Democrats, and two, the Democrats don't have any power to push for impeachment, or even decent investigations. When the Republicans wanted to pretend Clinton murdered Vincent Foster, for instance, or raped Juanita Broderick, they could introduce it into legislation, ask Ken Starr to look into it, and force it into the public discussion, and the media was only too willing to pick it up. But when Waxman catches Dick Cheney red handed giving kickbacks to a company he still receives checks from, Congress ignores it and the media treats it as a minor interest story, somewhere behind the Detroit Pistons win.

THAT's the difference. Learn your enemy, and quit attacking your friends.
