    Are you really going to claim that if all the nation's networks are filming live feed to their viewers while Congress is asking you if you got a blowjob from a woman not your wife, if you thought you had even a ghost of a chance to lie your way out of it, that you would tell the truth anyway?

    Are you really going to claim that?

    But the fact that neither you nor I have ever cheated on our wives does NOT change the fact that if either you or I did, and if we were placed in front of Congress with all the world's media's cameras focused on us, either one of us would lie our asses off regardless of what oaths we took to tell the truth...IF we thought that there was even a ghost of a chance we'd get away with it.

    You can claim otherwise all you want...but that doesn't mean much seeing as how you weren't the one with the cameras rolling, with live feed to all the networks.

    Maybe you would tell the truth...but if that's the case, then you are part of a very, very small minority of married men.
    And again, that's nonsense. Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Juanita Brodderick AND The young lady at question with a stained dress in hand.

    I suppose you still believe Al Capone was just a lowly tax cheat.
    Oh my goodness!!!! Democrats doing the nasty with women not their wives!!!! That's SO scandalous! Worse by far than selling missiles to the Iranians as part of an arms-for-hostages scheme, and then using the proceeds to buy drugs to finance a rebellion in Nicaragua!!!!

    By the way - you do know about "Diaper Dave" David Vitter, the married senator that paid hookers to have sex with him while he was wearing a diaper? You know, the same David Vitter that Republicans keep reelecting to the United States Senate?

    ...and Bush 43 - he of the "boutique" Air Force squadron that never left American soil - is IMO a chickenhawk, as Dick Cheney and almost every conservative pundit you care to name.
    I used to buy that argument, until I understood that it was always civilians that sent the military to war. The framers wanted it that way.

    What vast hypocrisy.

    Guy, if you kicked out every guy in Congress who had an extramarital affair, you'd be doing good just to have enough left to field a baseball team.

    How you can possibly compare the (hetero) sexual innuendo of a politician to freaking Iran-Contra and us getting lied into illegally invading a nation that posed no clear and present danger to the American people...is beyond me.

    Until Clinton took over, it had always been military veterans - and mostly war veterans - who had taken us to war.

    So what? You're just throwing flak now. You made an assertion, I showed it to be false. Now you're pulling out the kitchen sink. None of that had to do with Clinton's choice to lie under oath. And btw, not my state, I don't get to vote on Vitter.

    I didn't vote for Clinton either. You seem to agree with me that his commitment to Hillary, his wife, is the most important commitment, and if he can betray that, he could easily betray his lesser commitments, like to the office and the country.

    That's why I don't vote for adulterers.

    No, that so. The President does not declare war, not in the powers of office. Congress declares war.

    I don't know what I'd do in that situation. I've never been in it, and I can see no realistic possibility that I ever will. In order to get into that situation, I would have to have acted in a manner that is so far outside of what is normal for me, that I do not see any valid basis on which to speculate about how I would act in that situation, based on the personality of myself who would never get in that situation in the first place.

    I do think that most men are more honest than you assume. Perhaps you use yourself as the standard of honesty which you think applies to most men,and as a consequence, are greatly underestimating most others.

    But really, the whole point of my jumping into this discussion was to respond to this:

    I have to say that I just don't get it. Either I completely disagree with what you were trying to say here, or else I have no idea what you are trying to say. If it makes any sense at all, then it surely must make sense only to someone who values honesty far less than I do.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    He's projecting, thinking others are the same.
