    Not a GOPer and is following these stories shares the GOP take  about it. That should be noted. Many of us are following these stories because we don't like the GOP and want to keep track about their latest attempt to bring Obama down.
        Do we have numbers on that? Some in the GOP are worried that this scandal will end up like the Monica scandal that reelected Clinton and gave the Dems control of the House.
        Some GOPers that is the majority of coverage on tv seems to indicate that the majority of the GOP has not learned anything since the 80's and Newt.
        Which brings up another point the GOP has not had a new idea since the 80's.
        It was thought by many myself included that the GOP after Obama was elected the first time and again after he was reelected that the GOP would realize their IDEAS! are the problem.

      Which 80's?  The 1880's? Or perhaps the 1780's? Or perhaps even the 1680's?

      Sorry, it may seem a quibble but 1) Clinton was re-elected in 1996 (mostly bc economy was good and getting better fast and Dole and Gingrinch sucked, I mean really, really sucked) and Monica didn't blwo up until Jan/Feb irrc 1997 and impeachment was 1998, and Thugs kept House in 1998, albeit losing 8 seats which was pretty unprecedented for a 6th year midterm.

      OTOH, you might remember all the "worse than Watergate!" scandals between 1992-96, like 1) Clinton hippy slobs trashed WH!, 2) Travel-gate!(tm), 3) 'OMG He/she killed Vince Forster!'(tm)...

      Which stupidity this trifecta might legitimately be equated with.

      And, Thugs have had lots of new idea since the 1980s... but they've all been bad. ;->
