Opinion

(Ed.'s note: The following letter was sent to Congressman Gary Ackerman and is printed here at the writer's request.)

There you go again with your incessant bashing of President Bush! Don't you have anything else to do?

You have joined your misguided democrat colleagues with another one of your outrageous statements, as reported in the July 12 issue of Port Washington News..."The President said anyone in his administration who provided the leak 'would be taken care of.' Looks like this time, the President told the truth."

May I remind you congressman that your idol, William Jefferson Clinton, while packing his bags to vacate the White House at the end of his term, commuted the sentence of no less than 140 of his close friends, among which were convicted felons, tax evaders, racketeers, to name just a few, and oh yes.....his brother as well! Do I smell a double standard here? You bettcha!!! But that doesn't surprise me coming from someone like you who is loath to see the trees from the forest!

And now, joining this foray, we have Madame Hillary, characterizing President Bush's sentence commuting "cronyism". What a hypocrite! I guess like with all of the other events for which she claimed a loss of memory while occupying the White House, she had a reoccurring attack of amnesia about her husband's mega sentence commuting! Welcome to her club congressman!
