    Republicans scold Liz Cheney

    Have I missed this subject matter elsewhere on this message board? When both the right and the left attack the former Vice President's daughter, I am surprised that no one here has posted about this.

    Liz Cheney makes me sick, and I am glad that people who served under Bush I and Bush II agree that her attacks are out of line. When Ken Starr shows up on Keith Olbermann, that says a lot about Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol's stupidity.

    A group that includes leading conservative lawyers and policy experts, former Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr and several senior officials of the last Bush administration is denouncing as “shameful” Republican attacks on lawyers who came to the Obama Justice Department after representing suspected terrorists.

    Senate Republicans have demanded details of the lawyers' past work and Liz Cheney’s group “Keep America Safe” has questioned their “values." A drumbeat of Republican criticism forced the Justice Department reluctantly to identify seven of them last week. But the harshness of the criticism – Keep America Safe labeled a group of them the “Al Qaeda Seven” — has provoked a backlash from across the legal establishment.

    “We consider these attacks both unjust to the individuals in question and destructive of any attempt to build lasting mechanisms for counterterrorism adjudications,” wrote the 19 lawyers whose names were attached to the statement as of early Monday.

    I hope her stupid group "Keep America Safe" loses credibility as a result of her foolish statements.

    Do you want to discuss the other lawyers who signed the letter?

    no, i was focused on the presentation that ken starr is somehow the one who benchmarks the morality of political activity
    that is an absurd proposition
    but since it is your thread maybe you will be able to explain why he holds that status (in your world view)

    If he were the ONLY lawyer on the right attacking Cheney's position, I might question that myself. But that's not the case. But if you want to set your eyes on him, be my guest. I feel confident that Cheney is wrong on this issue whether Ken Starr says so or not.

    Ken Star did his job, and damn good job at that given the sensitivity of the issue and viciousness of attacks upon him.

    Present your evidence that Ken Starr did anything underhanded ever?

    Re: Republicans scold Liz Cheney

    What is it Ken Starr did that makes his name familiar? He wasn't the lead investigator into Clinton's sex trails was he?

    That's the guy. He started off chasing another rabbit and eventually found something to go after Clinton with for the high crime of not being a conservative republican. Eventually Clinton got tripped up by the whole thing and performed an actual crime. (For the record, I don't care what he did with Lewinsky since they are both adults and it did not affect his job performance.)

    I do not doubt the same thing will happen to Obama if the Republicans get in charge of either the house or the senate.

    All meaningless rhetoric, read about him. All he did was his job. You don't like him because he found out the obvious truth about Clinton and put it in a report.
