    Ensign: I did nothing "legally" wrong

    APNewsBreak: Ensign: I did nothing 'legally wrong' - Yahoo! News

    Sen. John Ensign told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his affair with a friend's wife was a mistake but not as bad as former President Bill Clinton's relationship with a White House intern because he didn't lie about it under oath.

    "I haven't done anything legally wrong," the Nevada Republican said.



    This guy still just doesn't get it. It reminds me of all those Bush Apologists that always say to put ethics and morality aside "Technically" there was nothing illegal about _____________________ (submit any number of excuses here).

    Now, wait -- if the Lewinksy affair taught us anything, it's that a politician's personal life personal morals don't matter, and it's all about policy and legality and the definition of "is."

    So yeah, you can say "but they say it DOES matter!!" and yadda, yadda, yadda . . .

    And everybody gets to point fingers at everyone else.

    Me, I think all y'all just like to gossip about boinking.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    Care to explain exactly what it is that you think he did wrong and how that should be punished?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Well to some cheating on your spouse is wrong, and the punishment will come at the polls when people don't vote for a guy like that.

    Personally I don't really care, because most politicians are not moral anyway in some way or another.

    Conservatives have to live up to a higher standard than Libbos.

    Their own fault. Lefties don't go around preaching morality, right wingers do.

    Total crock.

    I see as many self righteous preaching lefties now days then ever before. Just look on this forum. Only real difference is when they do something morally wrong and get caught, it is forgotten the next day.

    So you are saying that the "left" is the party for morality and family? That they go around preaching abstinence, no sex before marriage, no gay marriage as a core policy in their party program? And they attacked Bill Clinton for his blowjob while they themselves hunted under-age pages, got gay sex in airport bathrooms and hired prostitutes? The list goes on.. how about slamming Bill Clinton for adultery and then committing it yourself.. or does it not count if it is done in Argentina? Is that the "left" you are talking about, that preaches all that as core values of their party?

    Sorry but the American right is the poster boy for hypocrisy and double standard when it comes to "morality".. they are no better than the rest of us, but they attempt to project an aura that they are snow white and look down on the rest of us that are not and then they get caught in their own hypocrisy when they are caught with their pants down.

    Just because some on the right don't adhere to that morality, doesn't make the message wrong.

    The reason the left doesn't go around preaching morality, is because most of them have none. Life is a free for all to most of them, as their actions and public policies demonstrate.

    Hi. My name is John Ensign. I had an affair with a married woman, but because I didn't commit any illegal act, it's not so bad. Screw you all. (I know I did. )

    He's an asshole, and I hope his constituents vote him out of office.
