hypOcrisy update

Let’s take the Wayback Machine to 2002, shall we?  We’ll take a look at the Democrats’ responses to Trent Lott’s statements (and subsequent apology) about Strom Thurmond, which were widely condemned as “racist.”

  • His apology does not take away the sting of his divisive words…‘ - Barbara Boxer

  • I can tell you if a Democratic leader said such a thing, they would not be allowed to keep their position,’ - Mary Landrieu

  • What he said was insensitive as hell; it’s very offensive,’ … ‘Race is serious stuff. It’s not something you kid about.’ - Joe Biden

  • ‘…the GOP must decide whether Lott ‘represents the views of the majority of Republicans in the Senate and in our country.‘ - Hillary Clinton

He said: “The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party.”

If Democrat hypocrisy was jobs, the Obama economic mess would be over tomorrow.
