Deflect Deflect Deflect

Maryland State Democratic Party Chairman Michael Cryor seems to think that the biggest bad guy in the Ulysses Currie scandal is not Currie, but of course the Republicans:

But Cryor implores Marylanders "to reserve judgment on any man or woman with such a track record until all the facts are in and the scrutiny has run its course."

"This is not a time for the Republican Party or anyone else to use vague and uncertain events as a smear tactic to score political points," he continued. "That is especially true of an organization where multiple scandals involving its members have recently run their course. One would think that such a group would exercise a little restraint before making broad assumptions and issuing accusations for the sake of political gain."

I find it humorous that the Democrats would be put off by statements and comments that are rather tame to the disgraceful, vitriolic things that they have spouted off about President Bush, Governor Ehrlich, and others. What's even worse about Cryor's statement is the fact that he tries to deflect blame to Republicans after it became public knowledge that Currie violated ethics rules in filing his disclosure statements.

Maryland Democrats will do anything to protect the Culture of Corruption they have cultivated for themselves...

In addition to your whining when they comment and whining when they don't, I am pretty sure Cryor is not the Executive Director of the Maryland Democrats.

"Maryland State Democratic Party Executive Director Michael Cryor seems to think that the biggest bad guy..."

Would it be harsh to say this sort of shows a lack of attention to details and a desire to attack without much thought?

Maye so.

ouch...

"When the FBI shows up with a subpoena, you take it seriously,” Ehrlich said. “But let the process play itself out. I think on both sides of the aisle, he is viewed as a gentleman.”

Deflect, deflect, deflect?

Wrong position, ok fine. Right argument, absolutely. Grasping at straws commenter you bet.

Actually, thanks for noticing the screw-up, I like having those fixed.

Of course, Ehrlich wasn't blaming Republicans for Currie's problems, either and I disagree with Governor Ehrlich's assessment given the clear ethics violations here...

Well, you're just one tough dog when it comes to Bob...

Do you get corrections on such simple things a lot?

Ehrlich wouldn't notice anything about the Maryland Republican Party.

He hardly knows they're there. having raised so much money while his party starves.
