The first thing he did when asked about the threats to members of Congress was play the “Democrats were mean to Bush” card. That made his statements before that meaningless.

What good is it to condemn something, only to turn around and offer an excuse for it right after the fact? That makes no sense.

beats me. context is key. once condemned, further outrage can feel like faux outrage, which can invite comparisons to prior incidents. i’m not saying that’s what he did - i’m just saying that if a simple condemnation would have ended it, then a simple condemnation would have ended it.

catch my drift?
