Senator Larry Craig To Resign

David Drake: Larry Craig To Resign

My response to David's post:

1. If he is guilty and pled guilty, then he should have resigned because breaking the law is not a good example for others to follow.

2. If he is NOT guilty and still pled guilty, then he may or may not have resigned. It's hard to continue when others think you're guilty. You spend all your time trying to defend yourself and then no one looks at the good you have done... he did good for Idaho.

So it's hard to say... in the end, FOR HIM, perhaps resigning was best so he could salvage his marriage and fight any legal battles against the aligations.

For the state and for the nation... I don't think resigning was necessarily the best thing because he was a good Senator... we just don't know if he was a good person.

But look at Bill "sex with anything" Clinton... you don't have to be a good person for people to like you. Hell... every gay man in the nation should be standing up for Craig right now; stains on a dress... stains on another man's pants... what's the difference? :o)

David's response:

I like your take on it Bug, especially your point #2 and the sentences after that: "So it's hard to say... in the end, FOR HIM, perhaps resigning was best so he could salvage his marriage and fight any legal battles against the aligations."

I'm glad it's over and now the Republicans can continue on with apologizing and perhaps resigning for other things they are not guilty of doing. If they keep going down this road, pretty soon we won't have to worry about them for they will all have stepped down from office rather than fighting.


In the end... I agree with my original thought and David's... resigning was probably best for his own personal life.

What angers me is that he is guilty and branded before he's proved to be guilty. I know he looks guilty because he pled guilty... and that right there is probably enough. But I heard the tapes and it sounds to me that he could be innocent or just stupid.

I don't know... maybe he is guilty... but there's doubt in my mind so I can't say for sure.

I'm glad it's over - or at least appears that way with Craig saying he won't reconsider not resigning. His story has been a long road hyped endlessly by the MSM who - oddly - don't hype nearly as much Hillary Clinton's illegal campaign contributions from Norman Hsu.

No....the MSM has no bias...none. They're just reporting the news fairly. (cough, cough, hack hack). Is that my lung?

Hey, how about some new pics of Ellie?

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
