What Goes Around, Comes Around

It seems that many of us on the Right have been expressing skepticism for some time about the ability of Democrats to get much traction on the ethics issue. I've noted frequently that the list of Democratic offenders is, well.. it's longer than my arm.

The Democrats seem convinced though, that this will have to resonate with the voters. That our corruption is worse than their corruption.

It reminds me of Republican disbelief at the failure of voters to respond to campaign finance violations in the Clinton years. No matter how many times Republicans talked about the Lincoln Bedroom, the Buddhist Temple, John Huang, Charlie Trie, Marc Rich, White House coffees and the rest, the voters seemed disinterested. They seemed to conclude that everyone does it.

Now Democrats are surprised that at a time when each Republican scandal is matched by one or more Democratic ones, that the Republicans are not being blamed? We've seen this before. You may as well move on to the next arrow in the quiver.

Back to the top.
