We used to care…

When the president broke the law. They even made a movie about it. Heck it even defined David Frost’s career by getting Richard Nixon to admit that he thought he was above the law.

Fast Forward to present day and we find out that the George W Bush White House, committed gross violations of The Hatch Act of 1939. As the Washington Post puts it:

In the run-up to the 2006 midterm election in which Republicans lost control of the House, the Bush administration repeatedly broke the law by using federal funds to send Cabinet secretaries and other high-level political appointees to congressional districts of GOP candidates in tight races, according to a government report.

“Because those trips were classified as official, funds from the U.S. Treasury were used to finance the trips and reimbursement from the relevant campaigns was never sought,” stated the report by the Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal agency that enforces Hatch Act restrictions on partisan political activity inside the federal government.

So we have a President who knowingly and repeatedly broke the law, and costs taxpayers probably millions, and instead of disgrace and shame for the members, Is not even asked a question about it by the Faux news Network. SO instead of causing George Bush lifelong embarrassment, he gets a book deal!
