If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all: wasn’t warrantless wiretapping an unforgivable sin under the Bush Administration and the slippery slope to the absolute destruction of all civil liberty?
I have this idea that it’s not so much a double standard as it is a rejection of objective standards: liberals don’t judge actions on principle, they judge by who’s doing it. If it’s them, then it’s okay; if it’s anybody else, OUTRAGE!
Like I said, if you love civil liberty, you have to have a Republican as President. The national media lets Democrats get away with absolutely everything, up to and including aiding and abetting mass murder (Fast and Furious).
