Posted on 08/17/2010 6:17:50 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
The Justice Department has dropped its case against former House Majority Leader, Tom Delay, and Newsweek's Eleanor Clift is in mourning. She just can't accept the fact that there was no substance to the charges against DeLay and ascribes the dropping of the case to the Obama Justice Department trying to score points with Republicans in the interest of bipartisanship. Clift also manages to smear the late former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens in her angst over the dropped charges:
The Justice Departments decision to let former House majority leader Tom DeLay off the hook and end the six-year-long investigation that drove him out of Washington at the peak of his power should win the Obama administration some points with Republicans, if not Democrats. This is the second high-profile Republican that Attorney General Eric Holder has vindicated, the other being the late senator Ted Stevens, whose corruption case Holder declined last year to prosecute.

“Spirit of bipartisanship” my ass..... =.=
Eleanor off her meds again?
Uhh, as I recall the Stevens verdict was thrown out because it came to light that he had been convicted on the basis of evidence manufactured by the U.S. Attornies handnling the case. There was nothing left for Holder to prosecute.
Now DeLay ought to sue Ronnie Earle, the Dem dipwad from Austin who brought up the phony charges because DeLay had succeeded in redistricting TX.
This crazy woman is still smoking crack. She works for Newsweek, a publication which was sold for $1 last week, and the buyer paid too much at that. She is one of the primary reasons Newsweek was and is circling the drain.
After 6 years they still couldn’t come up with something so they finally gave up. An no sorry about those legal bills Tom either. This was nothing but a political prosecution to take down an opponent.
More like Eleanor back on the crack pipe ....
Whenever I see an innocent man who is not prosecuted to the full extent of the law, I drop to my knees and praise the divine mercy of the Obama Justice Dept.
More liberal delusions... Amazing how these folk insulate and protect themselves.
The left certainly has a deep bench when it comes to fielding moonbats, but Clift is not only in the starting lineup but she is definitely Pro Bowl material.
I’ve been recalling Eleanor’s stunned expression on the McGlaughlin Group or some other show when the Republicans took over Congress. I see she does, too, and doesn’t want to have to pull THAT particular mask from her Halloween assortment again.
I can’t wait to see it again.
Scott Tenorman: No, wait! Waaiittt!! Oh, my God, Oh, my Gaawwwd!!
[buries his face on the table]
Cartman: [walks over to Scott’s end of the table] Yes! Yesss! Oh, let me taste your tears, Scott!
[starts licking Scott’s tears off his face]
Cartman: Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet!
Oh, the tears of unfathomable sadness! My-yummy!
Six years and they’re droppoing the case? That tells me they had no case.
should win the Obama administration some points with Republicans,
I never would have believed Eleanor could actually be dumber than she looks, but there is the proof in print. Geez.
...and if further proof was needed, this:
This is the second high-profile Republican that Attorney General Eric Holder has vindicated, the other being the late senator Ted Stevens, whose corruption case Holder declined last year to prosecute.
For reasons obvious, he was framed.
Gee, Eleanor how about your feelings vis-a-vis W. After all he was the cause of just about everything the dems and the progressives dislike about America.
And what has Clift had to say about the charges against Rangel and Waters?
Politics of personal destruction.
Wow! That was mighty white of them!
Is Clift a member of the Communist Party?
These FARGIN BASTIGES railroad him out of office on TRUMPED UP CHARGES and she EXPECTS REPUBLICANS TO BE GRATEFUL?????????????????????????????????????
WHERE DOES HE GO TO GET HIS CARREER AND REPUTATION BACK??????????????????????
Ummm, Dancing with the Stars?
Facts are only symantics. The real issue is that Holder let him off.
She could be right.
Anybody remember what happened to Sandy Berger?
He STILL hasn’t taken the polygraph test that was part of the plea agreement.
Oh my, it appears the ever-lovely but dense Eleanor is unwittingly accusing Obama's pathetic stooge, Eric Holder, of playing politics with his power as head of the Justice Department.
How? Because being "bipartisan" is just as political as being "partisan" or being "nonpartisan". The words themselves denote 'political parties' and political positions.
So Clift trying to get Holder off the hook by implying he was promoting the spirit of "bipartisanship" in the case of springing DeLay is still a perversion, Eleanor, dear. He was being political as hell in his decision.
Justice is served by adhering to the LAW, not applying any criterion of pollitical "partisanship", "non-partisanship" or "bi-partisanship" to it at all.
Eleanor is certainly one of America's deepest thinkers.
Eleanor Clift is a disgusting woman.
She is a mean-spirited partisan hack that lies to support her point of view.
“Is Clift a member of the Communist Party?”
No, just what the Reds term a “useful idiot”.
Far more dangerous.
He was found innocent by a communist “justice” department. That means that there was absolutely no substance to the accusations.
Too bad a good man had to suffer through all that - but that’s what happens to White male Christian normalsexuals.
Maybe she should be investigated. I hope that in 2012 we elect a good American President who appoints an ant-communist AG to root them out and prosecute.
“After 6 years they still couldnt come up with something so they finally gave up. An no sorry about those legal bills Tom either. This was nothing but a political prosecution to take down an opponent.”
And to drain his cash so he will have nothing to fight back with.
Techable lesson here. You want to beat the rats you bankrupt them.
Bullshit. Somebody cut a deal. Now, what did Obama and the Rats get out of it?
Oh Great and Merciful Obama!
Thou hast bestowed bipartisanship upon us!
In America, the innocent shall be set free!
In return, we shall forget how this man’s reputation and career have been forever destroyed. It is our obligation, to the Great Obama, to ignore the injustice of opportunistic democrat prosecutors who hath tread upon the spirit of the Constitution for temporary polical gain.
Eleanor, you are an old angry bag.
I have GOT to know what these people smoke!! To be this demented, it has to be some really potent stuff!! The charges against DeLay were false from the outset, but they achieved the Dems' objective - get DeLay out of the way!!
Too bad. Texas and America are the biggest losers of this Democrat dirty trick.
Mega Uber BS
Couldn’t be that he was innocent of false charges by a hack Dem Attorney Gen. Good grief, could she be any more braindead?
Pray for America
The two lead attys working for the FedGov in the Ted case are also being brought up on charges themselves.
But, they got what they wanted, a Dem Senator from AK.
Next election, little markie will be out on his azz - the Dems dropped 5.5 Million in attack ads on Ted - and the election was decided by less than 4000 votes.
You got it! Earle is just as bad as that Duke DA..Mike Nifong.....they’re both pond scum!:(
That’s the whole set up. When Rangle and Waters are let off free they can say “We let Delay off so let’s be fair.” Clift is saying what she was told to say. Others will be saying it, too.
What is Eleanor Clift's screen name at the DUmp??
Jim Maddox, the former AG from Texas, told a friend of mine when Earle indicted Kay Baily Huchison, “The first thing Ann Richards does in a campaign is have Ronnie Earle indict her opponent.” Earle has been indicting republicans for years.
“Bipartisanship” is when you don’t have formal charges pending against someone. Now, we just have to change it in the dictionary.
