So far, I've yet to see any suggestions from the Peanut Gallery as to how they could do things more correctly whereas it would be equal for both sides.

All this blame on Republicans this and Republicans that, but no complaints on the Democrat Congress when they had the entire federal government for several years and never dreamt of increasing minimum wage to $10.10 or campaign finance reform.

What these leftist never understand is that Democrats are actors. Just like when they bashed Bush about Gitmo, NSA at airports, the Surveillance program, Medicare Part D, and then THEIR President and their CONGRESS and SENATE did nothing about it.

BTW, where is all that talk about Stem Cell research that could have saved thousands of lives and helped millions more that Bush was responsible for stopping? I don't think I've heard those two words "Stem Cell" since DumBama took office.

Oopsie...why is Fox News back peddling on that Acorn "scandal"? We'll hang it on the wall next to fake birth certificate scandal, FEMA Death camps and Obamacare Death Panels You know....what us in the proven higher IQ club like to call the wall of absurd. Ooops...almost forgot about the bogus climategate scandal where the GOP got busted altering the emails if climate scientists. So very many "scandals". Each one proven to be bogus and just the desperate and racist attempts to make a moderate president look bad

If unions can give money to the Democrats, why can't corporations give to the Republicans? Did you take a look at that donor list I provided? Actual cities were giving money to DumBama. How are "cities" giving taxpayer money away to a candidate?
Sorry, but when it comes to buying favors, it's a two way street. I know Democrats would love it to be a one way street, but that's not how the game is played.
So you are saying, yes, Chinese based corporations should be able to donate to American political campaigns without disclosing the source or the amount? Wave your little Tea Bagger flag to that one. What you describe has nothing to do with out of country donations that those "citizens" got passed. Untraceable foreign corporate donations sound like just a bunch of "Citzens United", doesn't it? Yah right. More sleazeball tactics from the sleazeball GOP.

Why do all these "scandals" end like this? Every single racist, bullsh1t scandal the right desperately tries to come up with ends just like this one. Too bad for you, you were too stupid to realize that the ACORN "scandal" had been proven to be bogus a long time ago. Funny how you guys still cling to it. I wonder (it's because you are a racist) why?

Here's what the Dems should do no matter who the right puts up to run...

I'm not saying I know for a fact, but there is talk that (Insert GOP Name Here) was known to possibly have sex with animals and children.

You guys are lucky that the Dems still have a shred of decency and don't play the sleazeball Karl Rove games like you guys love to defend so much. Hey neat. One of you Tea Baggers did everyone a "public service" by video taping a sick old woman in a nursing home bed. Nothing SLEAZEBALL about that...right? What? They didn't run that story on Fox News? Darn that Liberal Media.

You don't hear about stem cells because the nutball Christian right isn't running the show anymore. Hey, why did the abortion rates drop so much under a Liberal president? It must be all that "tyranny" that makes American parents want to keep their children. Ahhh ha ha ha ha! There's what a racist truck driver rambles about all day long, and then there is the real world. The two have nothing to do with each other.

I just read an article in the New Yorker that may be of interest to some of you here. It deals with the difficulty of correcting the misperceptions of people that have a strong ideological or partisan bent.

"In a study from 2013, Kelly Garrett and Brian Weeks looked to see if political misinformation—specifically, details about who is and is not allowed to access your electronic health records—that was corrected immediately would be any less resilient than information that was allowed to go uncontested for a while. At first, it appeared as though the correction did cause some people to change their false beliefs. But, when the researchers took a closer look, they found that the only people who had changed their views were those who were ideologically predisposed to disbelieve the fact in question. If someone held a contrary attitude, the correction not only didn’t work—it made the subject more distrustful of the source. A climate-change study from 2012 found a similar effect. Strong partisanship affected how a story about climate change was processed, even if the story was apolitical in nature, such as an article about possible health ramifications from a disease like the West Nile Virus, a potential side effect of change. If information doesn’t square with someone’s prior beliefs, he discards the beliefs if they’re weak and discards the information if the beliefs are strong."

I don't think there is any evidence of a correlation between DumBama and abortions. The only possibility that comes to mind is people felt so F'd by him taking over the White House that they've had enough sex for a while.

The liberals have been playing Karl Rove for the last 20 years or more. Speaking of sleazeballs and stem cells, how is ole Michael J Fox doing now that DumBama is going to allow embryonic stem cell research to be funded by the federal government? I missed where he addressed the Democrat led Congress without taking his medication. I really gotta pay more attention.

18 Former ACORN Workers Have Been Convicted or Admitted Guilt in Election Fraud
Published November 26, 2010

The scandal-plagued ACORN may no longer exist, but its tarnished legacy lives on in court, as the activist group and its former employees face criminal punishment.

So far this year, at least 18 former workers have admitted guilt or been convicted on varying charges of election fraud. The punishment has ranged from probation to several months of prison time.

ACORN, once a powerful advocate for low-income and minority voters, shuttered its operations amid plummeting revenues in March, six months after conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute caught on video some of the group's employees offering them tax advice.

But the group is still facing charges in Nevada on conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters.The trial, originally scheduled to begin Monday, has been postponed likely until next year.

Keep on spinning. The facts are there and anyone can look them up. We'll check back with you if we need your fantastic spin on the facts. I wonder if parents keep their children more when they have hope in our country's future? There's my magic spin on the FACT that as soon as we didn't have to listen to nutballs pretend that they know the will of god, the abortion rates plummeted. As soon as Obama (It's spelled Obama, not Dumbama. He's the elected president of the United States and you are not a fifth grader)...any way...as soon as Obama was elected, Americans had hope enough in our country's future to stop murdering their own babies out of the despair one can only guess was brought on by what the GOP did to this country.

Seems you Tea Baggers were right all along about those climate scientist kooks and their inaccurate predictions. The amount of ice that has melted in the Antarctica is double what they predicted, which obviously proves that there is no such thing as global warming...derp derp. Jeb Bush 2016 Heeeeee Haaaaaaw!
