They are hypocritical
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has acknowledged using steroids during his years as a champion body builder, said he doesn't regret using the performance-enhancing drugs. Schwarzenegger has acknowledged taking steroids, but pointed out that they were legal at the time. With such violent films as "The Terminator" (1984), he delivers the oft-quoted, straight-faced line "I'll be back" to a desk clerk and now he used that line in his speeches! Horrible!
Another case, that because of Clemens' friendship with President George W. Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush, some predicted the pitcher will be pardoned should Clemens be indicted or convicted of anything related to the hearing.
They are hypocrite pretending to be everybody's friend and nobody's enemy, when in their hearts they know exactly where they stand, and which way they'll go when the showdown comes, as many Republican leaders have. It's the spirit of competition and pride, proving you're better than the other guy. So they take steriods! But the world just loves it!
