That was then, this is now.

September 29, 2003:

McClellan: The President has set high standards, the highest of standards for people in his administration. He's made it very clear to people in his administration that he expects them to adhere to the highest standards of conduct. If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration.


June 10, 2004

Asked at a June 10, 2004, news conference if he stood by his pledge to fire anyone found to have leaked Plame's name, Bush answered, "Yes.”


July 18, 2005

Asked about his close adviser Karl Rove, who is at the center of an investigation into the disclosure of the officer's identity, Mr. Bush said: "If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration. I don't know all the facts; I want to know all the facts."
The remarks appeared to shift the standard for dismissal that has been expressed repeatedly over many months by Mr. Bush's spokesmen - from promises to fire anyone who played a role in the disclosure, to Mr. Bush's statement today that criminal conduct would have to be involved.


Sounds like it’s time to trot these out again

I guess it all depends on what your definition of the word "is" is. And "lying douchebag", too. How about "hypocritical born-again cokehead"?

If everybody in the U.S. were to mail a pair of flip-flops to the office of the man who occupies the office of President of the United States (notice I'm not naming names here)...

Is there a word for super-cynicism? Because that's where I'm headed. I'll send a postcard when I get there.
