How can you review Bill Clinton primary fight?

Who started the true birth movement?
A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission.

Have America had enough of the Clintons?

What will congress and the media do about the oil spill? DRILL BABY DRILL? Blame--Blame--Blame!

Did governors, and senators inspect their state oil fields before the problem?
Bill Clinton confused republican or what in the primary?

CONGRESS MAKE THE LAWS--WHY FIGHT THE PRESIDENT! FOOLISH!

Dirty Demoscats are trying to give the appearance in an election year of some shred of ethics but let's face it, this investigation is run by Demoscats and will result in no action against Dems.

This is a farce......its purpose is to put pressure on 8 members of congress that will probably vote NO on Odoodles Finance Overhall..........just a little CHICAGO ARM TWISTING is all it is. Vito, the Obama control CZAR will oversee the hahahaha ethics reviews..........wonder why we don't hear of the 14 black democratic congressmen that have been under review for ethics violations for 2 years.

This will accomplish nothing other than spend money unless we can find someone truly honest to do the investigating. Just look at the backgrounds of the Senators and Representatives in relation to unlawful activity--both parties. and now, our Treasury Secretary is a tax cheat, Nancy Pelosi has passed laws which pad her husband and her pockets, Kay Bailey Hutchison's husband was one of the attorneys setting up the Enron debacle, and I could go on.

Time to vote for those who represent us if you can find them.

It is an election year play, but 5 of the 8 are Republicans. So they may sacrifice all 3 Democrats trying to get rid of the 5 Republicans.

But my guess is, they will only find the 1 Democrat on the Financial Services panel guilty of ethics violations, while finding all 5 Republicans guilty. Poor Mel Watt of North Carolina will get thrown under the bus. THUMP THUMP!
