The party of *cough cough* personal responsibility blames Clinton AGAIN!!

This is beautiful. Just beeeeeee-yoooooo-ti-ful! Denny "soon-to-be-has-been" Hastert knows who to blame for the Foley scandal.

When asked about a groundswell of discontent among the GOP's conservative base over his handling of the issue, Hastert said in the phone interview: "I think the base has to realize after a while, who knew about it? Who knew what, when? When the base finds out who's feeding this monster, they're not going to be happy. The people who want to see this thing blow up are ABC News and a lot of Democratic operatives, people funded by [liberal activist] George Soros."

He went on to suggest that operatives aligned with former President Bill Clinton knew about the allegations and were perhaps behind the disclosures in the closing weeks before the Nov. 7 midterm elections, but he offered no hard proof.

When in doubt, blame Clinton. That's the party of "personal responsibility" for you. Hmmmmmmmm. An aide warned Hastert about Foley's fondness for boys about 2-3 years ago. And WHO was president then?
