SEriously, this WEiner guy is nuts. And FINALLY, since this latest revelation, his numbers are dropping. Otherwise, he might have had a chance at getting back into an elected office.

I don't care so much about sexual liaisons so long as the guy can lead. But this guy shows horrible judgment, and he's lied through his teeth throughout the whole thing.

And he's just GROSS.

Oh give it up. We're not a monolithic group, and the GOP has members (heh) who do stupid sexist crap.
And yet, when a Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin say something stupid, you blast the entire republican party.

Nope. I do not. I pick on the individuals or the LEADERS of the party. But I do not post here "Republicans do X" or "Republicans believe Y." Because I"m SMART and informed enough to know that there's a big range of beliefs and opinions in each party.

Maybe some day you'll mature enough to understand that.

I doubt it, though.

Right, that was the other thing. You think anyone elected to office is a "leader" of that party.

yup. And by definition, they are. An "elected leader."

BUt It's very very rare for me to make a blanket statement about all Republicans. It's just not something I do. Why would I offend GOOD republicans like Jess and jamwow?

I'm genuinely curious, what makes a "good" republican?

And Jess is no more republican than Gov Christie.

Kirk is a liberal. He did the ol bait and switch to get elected. And he only has half a working brain, so he's a typical congressman.

Bait and switch?

He was my Congressman for 4 terms. I have a very good idea of where he stands on issues and the length of time he has held those positions.

In addition, when he was running in 2000, his mother was my elder daughter's home room teacher. He used to come to the junior high and talk civics with the kids. My husband, who falls on the conservative side on the scale, donated to his campaign fund each time he ran.

I do not agree with all his positions, but I did not expect to do so.

If you are going the blather, do your homework.

"Congress" includes both the house and senate.

Yes but the title congressman refers specifically to members of the House.

I'd like to see his reaction if you called Durbin your Congressman from Illinois.

Right. Because there can be no differences of opinion or beliefs within parties.

He came out in support of gay marriage and amnesty. Now if he had run on those positions, do you think he would have gotten republican support?

Amnesty? Are you talking about the immigration bill? The answer is, Yes. Because a heckuva a lot of small to mid size IL companies employ people with questionable documents. Without that workforce the companies don't operate. The big Ag' companies like DelMonte rely on migrant workers.

There would be less paperwork, a more stable workforce with immigration reform.

Gay marriage was not on any politicians radar in the Midwest in 1980. After he was elected and showed his stuff in his 1st term, he was running on his record.
