Lets see, here we have a secret email on government servers that very few people know about. Now if they refuse to hand them over, then you may have a case.. but since they are on government servers, then chances are they cant stop it if all the legal requirements are met. Of course they could "disappear" like under the last administration... which brings me to 6 years ago..
6 years ago we had secret emails made on private non government servers in a direct attempt to hide information, not to mention in direct conflict with the rules and law... and back then it was no problem for the Bush administration and those involved...at least according to the GOP and its backers...
Well, if most of these folks didn't have secret accounts, they would never be able to get anything done because of all the crap they would be flooded with. When I worked on the Hill, I couldn't even begin to tell you how much of your taxpayer money was spent just battling the various Madalyn Murray O'Hair-esque rumors that we were inundated with constantly by people who would hear about it at church or wherever and then get upset and contact us by telephone, fax, email, mail, and sometimes in person.
However, the person asking the question phrased it in such a way initially, along with the context of that posters history, to imply that one could not legitimately have an issue with this one but not with Bush's. I was wishing to see if that similar attitude extended the other way, which cwas clearly not hte case when he came up with a "Well, that one was *different*" response, failing to acknowledge that there are differences that could lead one to share his nuanced outrage in the opposite direction.
Their either different issues, and thus the imemdiete attempt at screaming hypocrisy was in error...which was part of my point...OR they are comparable, in which case my question about his consistency when just asking it in a one sided fashion that was justified.
