GOD I love the lunacy of political rhetoric……
There has been a real silly debate going on within the pundit class…….e-mails……the first shot was fired by Jeb who released a ton of e-mails to his office at the time he was serving as governor…..fortunately many of those released carried with them people’s personal info lie home address, SSN, etc….and of course the media was all over this faux pas by Jeb’s staff….the story was good for about a week maybe a little more….
The next round when Hillary and her use of a private e-mail account as her time serving as the sec. of State….and the media was once again given something of a red meat issue that they could work…….and the Right wing media has not stopped chewing on that bone yet…..
As expected there have been many opponents to criticize Clinton for her action…..almost all the wannabes in the GOP for the nomination to include Cruz, Paul, Perry (who probably cannot spell e-mail) and of course Louisiana’s governor, Jindal,…..you remember him…..that frumpy little dude that gave the GOP response of the SOTU speech back in the day.
And speaking of Jindal……..
Bobby Jindal has dinged Hillary Clinton over her use of private email while in office, but he appears less than eager to release his own work-related correspondence, the Advocate reports. When the newspaper asked for access to the emails, the Louisiana governor’s team said that the documents were protected by exemptions in public records rules. “Aside from the obvious reason for excluding security information, these content-based exemptions support the environment of open discussion and full analysis necessary for staff to make recommendations to assist the governor in the usual course of the duties and business of his office,” wrote Jindal’s top lawyer.
The AP, which also sought emails from Jindal’s office, got a similar response from lawyer Thomas Enright. “Aside from email communications with internal staff and emails with family, friends, and personal business, Governor Jindal discusses, debates, and resolves issues relating to official duties either face-to-face or on the telephone,” he said. Jindal, who called for a transparent government in his first gubernatorial campaign, supported a law that included protecting communications tied to the “deliberative process.” Fair enough, a transparency advocate tells the Advocate: “What is out of line is how (the law has) been interpreted.” Proposed legislation could, however, rid the law of the exemptions.
This is a great illustration of just how stupid the political system has become……then there is the part that is so sad……the part where they seem to have NO idea of their hypocrisy…..
You know it is almost too disgusting to make fun of these d/bags…..you did notice that I said….”ALMOST”?
