A TANGLED WEB...

DENNY HASTERT


It seems that House Speaker Denny Hastert can't seem to keep his stories straight. On Monday he said this (via ABC News Blog):
On Monday, Hastert said: "I think Foley resigned almost immediately upon the outbreak of this information, and so we really didn't have a chance to ask him to resign, and I left at the very end of the session, almost, before the very last vote."

Then Tuesday on Rush Limbaugh's radio program, you had this to say:
But during Tuesday’s radio interview with Rush Limbaugh, he seemed to change his story, saying: "We found out about it, asked him to resign. He did resign. He's gone." He then repeated that line in a Tuesday interview with Sean Hannity.

Really, Denny, you're talking about a span of 24 hours. Can you not keep your story straight for even that long? I tell ya, it sure is tough when you're forced to constantly lie as one fib after another keeps flying back into your face.
Sir Walter Scott (or was it Joe Pesci in JFK) who once stated, "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." Has anyone started a Denny Resignation Watch yet? With the way his story keeps changing, I would think that he cannot hang on for long.

How many "liberal conspiracies" does it take to get to the center of this conservative jelly-roll pop? Speaking for myself, I don't really care if the guys involved are R's or D's, all I care about is the guys who knew MONTHS in advance did exactly squat. What Mark Foley did was wildly unethical and an egregious abuse of his position.

Hastert *asked* Foley to resign? Oh, yeah, that'll show him!

Hastert: Hey Mark, ya wanna resign? <@;)
Foley: No. lol
Hastert: Okay!

Asked him to resign, oh indeed!
