    Honestly, does one have to be absolutely myopic about the Demoratic party to not be a troll?

    I'm talking about a man who has had rumors around him for years, according to the group that sent the FBI the emails back in July.

    Regardless of party, if any Senator knew anything about the emails, before the emails, or after the emails, they have a moral responsibility to report it.

      I am explaining how it is a Republican Problem and not a Democrat problem.

      Who exactly should a Dem (provided they even had any factual evidence) reported this to, given that all checks and balances within our government have been totally removed and replaced with a bunch of sleazebag traitors hellbent on keeping themselves in power at the expense of 230 years of established law?

      Can you understand what I am getting at here? The REPUBLICANS created the conditions in the halls of congress in which this behavior is allowed to thrive, AND KEPT IT A SECRET. COVERED IT UP.

      You can't just hear a rumor then go blabbing your mouth to the police, and you sure as shit don't want to approach a congressional page and say "I heard a rumor that Foley fucked you"

      THE FACTS THAT WOULD HAVE ALLOWED A DEMOCRAT TO KNOW ABOUT AND FACTUALLY REPORT THIS TO THE POLICE WERE INTENTIONALLY KEPT A SECRET BY REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP.

      Are you smellin what I'm steppin in here?

        I think you're being too much of an apologist.  I don't buy your premise that Democrats were totally powerless. If we really want to fix the party for the ground up, I suggest we start with spines.

          Don't call me an apologist, there is not one iota of apology in what I said. I am on the offensive and fighting all you spineless weasels too afraid to throw the Repulican an anchor.

          You are being a weak-stomached fool too afraid to stand up and win this election by fighting the tough fight by the rules of set forth by the corrupt K-Street gang. If you wanna win this election cycle you begin by fighting them on thier turf, using thier rules, and never giving an inch to the enemy.

          Apologist my ass.
