and that information was gotten how? Oh thats right. Clinton used executive power to get personal files on all republicans via the FBI....Should've been his first reason for impeachment right off the bat.
But yet the lefties cry about domestic spying, when their boy willie introduced abuse of power by using federal agents to spy on republicans, for no other purpose than political gain.
Secondly, I guess John Edwards must be a saint in your eyes, his wife had cancer and he left to campaign, because "thats what she would want him to do". I guess when he was banging the ditzy blond while his wife was getting treatment he just figured "thats what she would've wanted him to do" huh?
The left is just as hosed as the right. The reason american citizens and taxpayers are getting hosed.
But you just go ahead and keep on thinking "your" party will save america.
This is exactly where both parties want their constituents......keeps the focus off the raping of america.
If memory serves, wasn't it your boy Burton who said of Clinton "This guy's a scumbag and I'm gonna get him". Then it seems the outspoken Mr. Burton was discovered to be paying support on a child he fathered during an extramarital tryst. Makes one wonder who the REAL scumbag really was/is. Oh, but now since he's too old to be a swordsman, he has become a "Born again Christian" Give me a break.
After 8 years of Bush's bumbling, fumbling, miscalculating, pandering to the wealthy, and generally screwing up. this nation needs saved.
Just saw a newsclip of Obama, and it's nice to see a President who can actually speak without first saying "Uh, Uh, Uh". I can't ever eecall seeing Bill Clinton stumble, fumble and mangle the language in such a manner, in fact no other President was so inept a speaker. Not even Gerald Ford. I can only imagine Bush giving Roosevelt's famous speech, saying "Hey, we, uh, don't have nothing to be scared of but, uh, being scared". Duhhhhhhh!

are you kidding me? everytime obama opens his mouth it's with an uh,uh,uh...,he can't make any decisions on his own, he has to ask all his advisors! And also, I live on the eastside of Indianapolis, and I voted Mccain, so don't think only Carmel and Westfield people only voted Mccain.

I also voted McCain. I like him, respect his service to this nation. I wish he'd gotten the nomination in 2000.
Know what, we're all not exactly beng civil. Too bad there can't be a cordial exchange of different ideas sans all the insulting, name-calling, insinuations and all the other ways of being impolite. Yes. I am as guilty as anyone, but from now on I'm doing no more of it. Better just to respect the other person's convictions when yours are different. Truce!

Sorry Mrs Cleo, I vote independant unlike you goosestepping kool-aid drinkers.
So pat yourself on the back for another wrong assumption that once again puts you in the same category as idiots who'd vote in whackjobs like Pelosi, any Kennedy, or analwipes like Murtha or Feinstein.
and you want to talk about credibility....Bwwahahahhahaha haaa.
Drink up, the deviates within are counting on lemmings like you.

Actually, I think it is YOU ARE AN IDIOT.(I guess you are comprehension-challenged) I would NOT take ANYTHING that someone who lives in Westfield, in the SECOND MOST CONSERVATIVE county in the country, seriously. You would complain about everything that is NOT supported by your leader Limpdick Limbaugh and his mindless lackeys. Anyone who would continually put Dan Burton back in office has NO CREDIBILITY to criticize ANYTHING the democrats do.
And putting Julia Carson in office gives you credibility?

I was just talking with someone who spent 40 years in the banking business, was President of a large bank, a staunch Republican and asked him just what caused all this mess. His answer, to make things short, was that it certainly didn't happen in two years, in fact over a long period of time.

You know, President Obama, put it more tactfully, but the GOP LOST, so who gives a DAMN what you or any other right-wing LOSER thinks. You can post your inane crap all you want, but the FACT is the GOP is now irrelevant. You lost, we don't give a SHIT what you think.

You will be caring in a few months when you see what this commie is up to. We will be taking back over in 2010. This idiot has Carter written all over him. It took Carter to get Ronald Reagan. We will see who is laughing in less than a year. Your asses will be sore from the reaming Odumbnuts gives you. LMAO.`

whats the matter with you brainwashed fools who blindy follow this socialist. Do you feel that its some sort of reparation for what your white ancestors could have possibly done many years ago in the era of slavery. YOU FOOLS. that was a different time. you dont have to blindly follow this communist in order to make amends with your past. he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. he will singlehandedly be responsible for destroying america. we are now living in the post-american world.
And what was the connection to what I posted? I addressed your previous supposition that Barack is not black. You were wrong in assuming that supposition by today's definition of race. Most people versed in human biological traits agree that the definition of race has no merit. There is greater genetic variability between some persons of the same race than there are between some persons of differing races. The purpose of my previous post was to only illustrate the archaic racial views of American society. I agree in some ways to your response that slavery occurred several generations ago perpetuated by persons now long dead. However, you ignore the extremely strong racial bias that existed within this country as recently as thirty years ago. Do you not know of Jim Crow laws, facilities delineated by race, lynching’s, and of course the now infamous pictures and video of nonviolent marchers hosed down with fire hoses? Many individuals that experienced these injustices still live and many still carry emotional scarring from these experience. For you to ignore these very facts and attempt to paint a rosy picture of American racial discourse is disingenuous at best. Again we all in some manner carry racial bias. The only manner in which to heal the continued rift between races within this country is to move from our base view of race to one that embraces one humanity.

No, only liberals like you carry racial bias. You want to divide people by race. You point out thier differences. You and the race pimps like Sharpton and Jackson keep racism alive. You and Rev. Wright are the racists. So go eff yourself A hole.

How truly sad. I made no disparaging remarks while you resorted to ignorant disparaging remarks. We as a country have bought into the political mechanization buoyed by our two party system and the all mighty media sound bite! It is time that the citizenry take the political system back. It is time for honest open political discourse amongst the populace devoid of bickering and end fighting. Raucous personal attacks have been a part of our country since its founding. However the new breed that has risen in recent times has made open political discourse extremely difficult and chaotic. It is truly sad that we are now a country afraid of discourse. Democracy cannot exist without such as we continue to allow our elected officials monopolize our given right at free speech. Wake up people!
