President Bush:

I have to at least defend President Bush here. I don't think there's a double standard at all. If Hillary was president and was presenting a medal to a dead soldier, I don't think the media would care if she cried. I certainly wouldn't. Hillary's little moment yesterday was far from comparable. Do you really think if she was still the frontrunner that she would have gotten so emotional? The answer is no. Rush is absolutely right when he says "Nothing the Clintons do is ever coincidental. Everything is calculated" If Bush had started to cry when McCain beat him in NH in 2000, I'm sure the media would have covered that and justifiably so. It's not a matter of who gets teary-eyed, but why.

I won't defend Mitt or the other examples here, but I don't think Hillary's "crying" can be compared to the true emotion President Bush must have felt. I'd be much more shocked if he or any president didn't get emotional doing something like that.

I highly doubt that. Hell hasn't frozen over yet. He should stick with popping non-prescribed pills.

Speculation is that they were plants by the Clintons, to make Hillary look stronger.

You're trying to turn a vagina into a penis. It is not going to work.
Men and women deal with things very differently, but the important part is that they deal with it.
What's gonna happen when your wife comes home from work after a very stressful day and has a good cry about it?
She's obviously not human material.

Seriously, just stop. Stop listening to Rush, and stop thinking you know exactly how everyone would react.

Crying because you have a bad day isn't presidentail regardless of one's gender.

Crying isn't acceptable when your football team wins or loses, but I see men do that all the time.

It's not really presidential to start a war under false pretenses, and to defy the wishes of the U.N.; or to call the document that we've based our entire government upon a "goddamned piece of paper", but that apparently hasn't stopped our current leader.

When did I say that? I'm saying that you're a moron if you don't realize Hillary was crying because she is losing. EVERYTHING they do is planned. If it isn't, why is this the first time we've seen Hillary get so emotional like this? Why none of these moments when she was the inevitable successor to Bush?

I believe this little remark would be better aimed at some of your pals in here who call Limbaugh's listeners "racists" and think all Republicans are bigots and hate black people.
