WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top U.S. Republican testified on Thursday in the investigation of a Capitol Hill sex scandal, and afterward said the sordid affair was not hurting his party's chances of retaining control of the U.S. Congress in the November 7 elections.(SOURCE)
"It does not appear to be affecting any of our races," House of Representatives Republican leader John Boehner said after emerging from a closed-door meeting with a congressional ethics panel. Boehner of Ohio said voters were more interested in such matters as taxes and national security.
Boehner's statement "voters were more interested in such matters as taxes and national security" sounds talking points lifted straight from the Clinton Spin Playbook. Pro-Clinton spinsters said no one cared about the Lewinski scandal because it was "only sex." Republicans couldn't wait to find a way to take Clinton down for his rougish hyper-hetero behavior, but want to sweep Foley's Brokeback hypocrisy under the rug.
If it's true that we Republicans only care about "taxes and national security," then we 'll get what we deserve come November.
