In his recent blog entry, Ara Pehlivanian asks a very interesting question: how come Clinton was impeached for lying about sex, but Bush and his cabinet gets away with a whole web of lies that got us into Iraq?
I think the answer is simple here.
Clinton was a democrat surrounded by republicans who wanted him out of the office. Bush is a republican, surrounded by his buddies, business partners, yes men, and cronies. American public had very little to do with the impeachment. This was a political power play from the beginning to the end.
The people who worked behind the scenes to orchestrate the Clinton scandal are the same people helped to install Bush in the office. And they will not allow to get their guy nailed in the same way they have nailed Bill. This is why Bush never testifies under an oath.
