I often stated that the Left in this country has become more of a religious cult than a political party and Vitter’s story helps justify my argument. Though we have some on the Right who will stand firm by Senator Vitters past transgessions, there are still many of us conservatives that won’t. I’m one of those conservatives.
Vitter’s story is actually a little more unacceptable than say Rep Bob Livingston and President Clinton’s sexsational story. The difference is, Senator Vitter had those examples just prior to his affairs and could have learned from them not to do it. What’s worse, he weighed in at the time and suggested that adultery is reason enough to cause a resignation. An even bigger difference is that niether Livingston nor Clinton actually violated the law by paying for a prostitute.
One cannot imagine how disappointed and embarrassed that I am that Senator Vitter did what he did, especially with such a short period of time after the Blewinsky story
Having said that, it seems Liberals are being very liberal with the word “Hypocrite” because of Vitter’s pro-family stance. I find it interesting that they also believe that they are some how excluded from the term.
But while my position remains the same as it did during the Clinton impeachment, I find it quite interesting and quite hypocritical of the Left to march around singing songs of ‘holier than thou’ while throwing stones at Vitter, completely turning their backs on the position they took during the Clinton years.
Where’s the cries from the Left that “It’s just sex”
And why should they even be concerned about it being with a prostitute when a woman should be able to do what she wants with her body anyway? Or is a “Woman’s Right to Choose” exclusively for abortions? I thought the Liberal position on this was that Government should not interfere with what goes on between two consenting adults.
After watching Liberals during the Clinton-Blewinsky scandal, the only thing they ought to be concerned about concerning Vitter is whether or not he wore a condom. The only thing the Left should be talking about is how Vitter’s action is none of our business.
Liberals ought to just shut their muths up unless they are coming to Vitter’s defence. I challenge Liberals to not be hypocrits, take the same position on Vitter’s stance as you did with Clinton.
Take the same position you did during the Clinton administration. If it was wrong then, shouldn’t it be wrong today? And is extramarital affairs only justifiable under the Democrats, yet crucifiable during a Republican affair? Don’t be a Democrat cultist, take the same stand today that you did then.
