Catch the Falling Flag What we are telling you today, said Chairman Hyde, are not the ravings of some vast right-wing conspiracy, but a reaffirmation of a set of values that are tarnished and dim these days, but it is given to us to restore them so our Founding Fathers would be proud. Deeply critical of the Presidents conduct in allegedly lying to a grand jury and obstructing justice through other means, Hyde closed with a peroration directed not so much at his colleagues in Congress as to all of us.
Its your country, said Hyde, the President is our flag-bearer, out in front of our people. The flag is falling my friends I ask you to catch the falling flag as we keep our appointment with history.
He became my hero during the impeachment of Clinton. I even wrote him a letter telling him so.
Wonder if we’ll hear from the Clinton attack dogs, Carville, Blumenthal, etc.
God bless Henry Hyde, I wish we had more brave men like him in Congress.
