Truth or Consequencies

Politics are so very partisan in this election year. Most feel that both candidates for the highest office in our land are tarnished. I therefore hesitantly offer a comparison that I feel needs consideration. First of all, Hillary Clinton has been criticized highly for being misleading in her handling of classified material and has apologized for doing so, as she should. After studying her case for a year, the head of the FBI declared that she had used very poor judgment but had not broken any laws. My point is that there is a precedent for misleading the public as well as public officials. President George W. Bush presented so-called proof that Saddam Hussein had WMDs and therefore Hussein had to be removed which lead to the invasion of Iraq. I’m not excusing Hillary Clinton or George W. Bush, but I am pointing out that both committed errors of judgment. I don’t recall President Bush ever apologizing for his “mistake.” At least, Hillary has apologized. The former president has decided not to cast a ballot in this presidential election. It appears that he does not want to commit a second error in judgment.
