Yeah...that was a pretty dumb statement. If we want (and hey on DU we may not), but if we want the President to have the high ground and not sound like a hypocrite when Republicans say stupid things like this...we can't pretend it's not stupid when someone like Hoffa does it. There is nothing wrong with consistency. That was a bone headed thing to say. We've almost melted DU down several times over when a Republican makes statements like these. I don't want him to apologize...he didn't make the statement. But, the next time a Republican says something stupid, the President will look like a hypocrite if he opens his mouth to condemn it.

I'm just sorry. It's the truth. And, down deep somewhere, we know it is. That's why I was actually impressed when NOW defended Palin or Bachmann after some inappropriate sexist comment. It's not about being politically correct. Words have consequences. If we care about those consequences, we can't play favorites.
