Political Hack of the Week

Starting off the New Year as political hack of the week is a former winner of this award. He is also one that will, if history is any indicator, continue to win this award from time to time for however long it is around.

The political hack of the week is Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He wins this award with the following quotes, "There are differences between felons and whistleblowers, and we ought to wait 'til the investigation occurs to decide what happened," and "The president thought that there was a problem, instead of coming to the people and saying he needs changes in the law; he just did it on his own," Schumer said . "It calls into question the way the president and the vice president change things."

So, someone divulging classified information to the New York Times is not a felon as long as said person has a problem with the subject of that classified information. This person is not only a felon but a traitor that severely damaged national security.

In the second quote Schumer implies that there was a law broken, which of course has not been proven. He also insinuates that the President should come to the people to change a law that would allow him to carry out a top secret operation. He cannot be serious. I guess in Senator Schumer's world we should have open debate on all of our stategies in waging the War on Terror. What a loon.

This is yet again another clear indication that democrats have no concern for national security.
