"I've heard this argument over and over, that Bonds has been unfairly singled out. I will say what I've always said. Barry Bonds is no more culpable than a journeyman who used it to sustain his career, a reserve who used it to become a starter, a minor leaguer who used it to get to the majors, a .250 hitter who used it to hit .275, but if the president is accused of the same offense as an obscure congressman, what's the bigger story? Where's the focus? It's on the president."
