The Audacity (and Hypocrisy) Of Andrew Card

Hypocrisy is nothing new when it comes to the Bush crew, but Andrew Card's recent statements just really pissed me off. Here's Card on Wednesday night telling "Inside Edition" that President Obama's casual, jacket-less Oval Office style somehow shows disrespect for the Office and the Constitution.

“There should be a dress code of respect…I wish he would wear a coat and tie…The Oval Office symbolizes…the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I’m gonna say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court, and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it’s appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President.”

Wow. It's as if these people think that wearing a suit jacket in the Oval Office somehow negates routinely violating the Constitution and treating it as just "a piece of paper."

But that's only the audacity. See here for just a few examples of the hypocrisy.
