Now there's no way anyone here can speculate as to a Bush-Condi affair, BUT I think that if Laura Bush really did move out of the WH, even for a few days, it would have gotten mainstream press coverage. Did I just miss it back in June? Anyone know anything more?
From the article:
Rocky shoals for Bush marriage? Informed sources Inside the Beltway report that First Lady Laura Bush has established temporary residence in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC as a result of a tiff with President Bush over an extramarital relationship involving her husband. Mr. Bush’s tryst is said to involve Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It is not known how long Mrs. Bush plans to remain at the Mayflower, however, her security detail has been present at the hotel during hours when the First Lady would normally be residing in the White House.

If there were any truth of such rumors, the sleze media would be all over it and Democrats would go after Bush with Impeachment proceedings. I would love to have it be true in one way, mainly as revenge for what the Republicans did to Clinton.

You guys keep forgetting that President Clinton did it to himself by committing perjury.
Unless President Bush commits the same crime (and it is a crime) then you got nothing to compare. The intense hatred some on the left feel for him, mixed with a desire for revenge prevents them from hiding their misconceptions about what the real problem was.

I believe a lie is justified if the question shouldn't be asked.

Perjury is only a crime when you're being asked, under oath, if you had an affair on your wife. Perjury is not a crime when a top aid in the White House lies and misleads a grand jury about blowing a CIA agents cover. At the MOST it's just a weak technicality...at least that's what the right wing says.

Quoting B777-700 (Reply 17): Clearly it was unethical of the right-wing to ask about an individuals personal details in an attempt to smear his reputation for their own collective benefit.
Agreed. Especially since the left has never done such a thing.
I wasn't referring to politics at all. The comment from Mir about "who the fu#k cares" is where I believe this topic should fall. I made my comment about a lie being justified - I don't think it ever is. IMO, if a question "shouldn't have been asked", then the proper response would be something along the lines of:
- That's none of your business.
- I'm not at liberty to say.
- No comment.
- I don't know.
