No Bill Clinton proved perjury under oath is ok in some cases. The question is, in the Burris case, who was wearing a blue dress ?
What happened in the Burris case is that Burris successfully played the race card. No one dared to challenge him, no white man, that is. -and the Obama administration was stuck, they couldn’t call him on the lie without releasing ALL the tapes of Blagojovich, which would have shown that the Obama administration and the SEIU were in the business of buying and selling political positions, as well.
My guess is that Burris was being threatened behind the scenes about being prosecuted and this mea culpa is his way of letting Rahm Emmanuel know that he is going to defend himself, in the press, not behind closed doors. The man is a lawyer, he’s no Uncle Tom, like he presented himself. It’s an act.
