After the interview, Bob wrote to me and said that he considered it "a matter between him, his wife, and God." But without prompting, Bob launched into a defense of his numerous on-air discussions about Bill Clinton's sex life. In the email, Bob argued that he only talked about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky because of the perjury charge. Well, why not let Bob do the talking:
If he [Bouchard] did what Bill Clinton did by committing the felony of perjury in an attempt to deny a fair trial to another citizen (Paula Jones), then Bouchard's affair WOULD become public business, not because he had an affair, but because he broke the law. That's always been my position, without change. That's why when there have been news stories about Democrats having affairs, I have always ignored them, every time. I didn't even criticize Jesse Jackson for his affair a couple of years ago. He broke no laws and so I considered that a personal issue that was none of my business. I assumed he repented and asked forgiveness and that's always been good enough for me. As a matter of fact, you are not able to come up with one example ever of me criticizing a Democrat for having an affair. Not one. Why? Because I have always been consistent on what the Bible says about forgiveness for the repentant sinner.So imagine my shock when I tuned in today to hear to hear Bob talking to some woman about allegations, by supermarket tabloid National Enquirer, that John Edwards had an extramarital affair.
Huh? What happened to all of Bob's rhetoric about "always" being "consistent" and "always" ignoring news stories about Democrats having affairs? Bob, I thought you said this type of thing was "a personal issue that was none of [your] business"? How did John Edwards' alleged infidelity suddenly become your business? Where's the law breaking in the case of Edwards? Heck, Edwards doesn't hold any public office and is no longer running for any office! So why is this "news" story even on Dutko's show?!
So here we are with another shining example of Bob's hypocrisy. His discussion today was merely another instance of his never-ending demonization of Democrats. Bob won't talk about how Republican presidential candidate John McCain cheated on his wife. Furthermore, there's no shortage of other Republican sex scandals that Bob could talk about. But he won't. Because he's a liar, a hypocrite, and a GOP shill. Nothing more.
