What Bennett Said...

On Wednesday Morning William Bennett, Former Secretary of Education and Author of "The Book of Virtues" said the following:

"But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down...That would be an impossibly ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down."

Among the typical dunces in elective office and their Left-Wing liberal supporters, the President Joined chorus to criticize Mr. Bennett's comments:

"The president believes the comments were not appropriate," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said.

Now we cannot seem to find a quote where Left-Wing Liberals or President Bush was critical of the following comments whith regard to race:

"You would have been a great senator at any would have been right at the founding of this country, right during the Civil War....I can't think of a single moment in this nation's 220+ year history where you would not have been a valuable asset to this country." Democrat Senator Christopher Dodd 04-05-04

"There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time." Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, Member Ku Klux Klan 03-11-01

I hate to admit it, but I have reached a stage in my life that if I am walking down a dark street late at night and I see that the person behind me is white, I subconsciously feel relieved." Jesse Jackson

"She's the House Negro. It's a fact, it's my opinion. Am I entitled to my opinion?" Radio Talk Show Host Neil Rogers 11-08-02

There are many other racially divisive statements made by Democrats about Blacks but President Bush to date has made no criticisms of these statements. The Democratic Party leadership doesn't even seem to have a problem with the statements. For some reason, we cannot get President Bush to condemn any remarks at the request of those who of us who voted for him - his constituency, but Nancy Pelosi, Edward Kennedy, and their Left-Wing cabal can get an immediate statement by the President at their behest. It sometimes makes me wonder who we elected.

We all should be fully aware the the only reason that this is an issue is because Secretary Bennett is a Conservative Republican. In light of the blatant hypocrisy among Democrats and among the RINO's in the GOP, I do not consider Mr. Bennett's comments offensive. I am open to rexamination when the aforementioned quotes are reviewed with the same scrutiny.
