Did anyone ask vitter why he doesn't hold himself to the same standard he asked of Clinton
during the lewinsky affair, that is to resign?

I certainly hope the MSM asked him that particular question, because otherwise I would think the media in this country my not be fair

1. No. Lou Dobbs said he's entitled to privacy
and his wife who villified Hillary for standing by Bill is entitled to do a 180-degreee change on what she'd do to a cheating spouse without challenge.

:puke:

5. They Can Have All The Privacy They Want...
...when this goon resigns in disgrace...as he should. As long as he's collecting a government paycheck, his life and lies are very, very public.

6. Really, lou? Even though the vitter's said just the opposite at the time
they thought the Clinton affair was everyone's business

Isn't it funny how we have double standards Mr. Dobbs

In fact, dobbs, it isn't your choice to determine whether he is or isn't entitle to privacy, HE IS A PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVE

You and the other lap dogs of the media can go to blazes

Since I stopped which the MSM years ago, their advertisers don't get any revenue from me

15. How that clown hasn't gone the way of Tucker Carlson yet
and became a punchline is beyond me.

2. That is the one question I am waiting to hear asked about this situation.
Vitter didn't take any questions today at his press conference, but the talking heads who are defending him should be asked that point blank (Tucker should be numero uno on that list). Vitter's words about Clinton need to dragged out into the sunlight and discussed in relation to these events.

4. This is so important, and it has nothing to do with sex, it has everything to do with lies
and deceit. If they OR the media hadn't made an issue out of the Clinton affair it wouldn't matter, but they did

The media is equally guilty. It is this twisting of the truth which is why we are in Iraq

Nothing surprising, but it should be no wonder why the country is where it is today

3. He & his wife refused to take any questions.
I don't think this story is done though. There's still witnesses in LA. who say they will swear they SAW him with the hookers in LA that he said wasn't true tonight, and the DC Madam said she is going to call all these guys as witnesses in HER trial. I can't recall who mentioned on TV tonight, but IF a crime was committed, the case becomes a matter of public record, and paying a prostitute IS a misdemeanor!

7. That may be, but based on the media not doing their job, I have no doubt
they will keep the story as low profile as possible

13. MSM (nola.com) already interviewed his N.O. hooker
Edited on Tue Jul-17-07 12:01 AM by splat
They've been challenged now. They won't hush this up. They'll expose his denial.
Here's the interview and more.

9. I did...I did!!!! (rude stuff...not for the timid)
This is the nastygram that I sent him on his senate.gov webpage...
Your hypocrisy and hubris are intolerable. You pressed Clinton for his moral failure and now you are guilty of the same (and worse).
Resign now and save some shred of dignity!
I was personally surprised that you didn't pull an "R. Budd Dwyer" during your press conference today. It was unbelievable witnessing the victim posture that you assumed...your wife must have no sense of self-worth to stay with an ass-stain like you.
Resign and go back to wearing diapers with your hooker friends.
You are a shameless turd and the worst kind of hypocrite.
YOU MUST RESIGN!!!

10. Oh, I bet he NEVER sees THAT email!
I think that's one of the reasons these AH'S have aides! They shield them from that kind of stuff! Maybe if they get a LOT OF 'M, the shield will collapse!

17. I have a suggestion.
Explain more about Clinton's BJ and Hillary's decision to stay with Bill.

Put it in a regular snail mail, in a letter and w/a stamp, and explain how Budd Dwyer escaped his embezzlement troubles -- on live film.

12. Are you kidding. The republicans think they are immune to the type
of rhetoric they spewed at President Clinton.

16. they will all pussyfoot around this whole issue because it's "distasteful"
and I'm pretty sure that they were more or less told to never say the word "diaper".

Funny how they were snickering like junior high school kids when the astronaut story was in the news.. and she was not even a senator :)
