    This is good news. He was hurting their image since the Democrats are running their midterm re-election campaigns on the platform of anti-corruption in the face of all the scandals that the Republican party has been involved in in recent months. This is the kind of thing I'd like to see the Republicans do more often instead of trying to deflect blame and protect their corrupt members. *coughDeLaycough*

    I heard this on the radio, but I didn't think it was important enough to post.

    Hahaha! If only that were true, my friend. I think they should up the penalties for these greedy a-hole politicians who fall into the corruption pitfalls. Like...having their hands cut off or something. I think it would really reduce the amount of corruption they engage in. :up:

    I still don't see either of those happening, but I've been wrong before- well except for political races.

    I honestly think that the make-up of this pathetic Congress will not change. I think the Republicans will keep their slim majority. The Republicans will lose some seats in the Senate and House, but not enough to give the Democrats any form of majority.

    What f**king pisses me off though is that the Democrats platform is only "We're not Republicans" a political party with a platform like that doesn't deserve to win a majority. And the incompetence of this Republican-led Congress (the most important thing they have done is change french fries to freedom fries and back to french fries) proves that they don't deserve to win either.

    As much as I want to be optimistic I find myself agreeing with your opinion. But that doesn't mean I'm giving up on the party by any means.

    well, that's kind of not true, they have different approaches when it comes to the war in Iraq, healthcare and spending, in fact, didn't the differences get all kinds of highlighting in 04? by your reasoning the republicans ran on platform of "we're not clinton" and have been doing so successfully I might add for almost 7 years now.

    The Democrats' "plans" are just mere shells to give them something to campaign about besides not being Republicans

    The Democrats will act slightly less fiscally ******ed than Bush, not that much of a difference. Analysts have even said that if John Kerry was elected the deficit would continue to rise and he promised to be fiscally responsible.

    From what I've heard from the Democrats about Iraq seems to be a rush job that won't work just like the Republicans plan isn't working.

    I also don't like government health care on account that it sucks. Trust me on this one, it does :mad:

    And no, the Republicans haven't been doing the "We're not Clinton" platform like the Democrats are doing the "We're not Republicans. So vote for us anyways even though we don't know what the hell to do either!" platform. The Republicans have set up a neo-con agenda, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, pro-Israel, Iraq War, etc. It may be a rather crappy agenda, but at least it's something.

    The Democrats need a plan first in order to change this country for the better.

    I know. I've seen him talk about the U.S. saying "we" or "us" and such... he's such a wannabe. He should just move to Maine or Vermont... pretty close to Canada if he likes the Canadian climate that is.
