Why would it have been in question whether or not they could organize to recall the Commie Troll?

"We the people" Are the ones that are supposed to decide who is in office and who isn't.

They work for us!! I hope that one day very soon our communist black dictator and his comrads in congress learns who the boss is because it sure isn't them.

Who will they replace him with? A wingnut that borrows and spends or a liberal that taxes and spends? Good luck N.J.

Weather they could "organize"? They made a phone call. Hired a lawyer. Organization at it's finest? Then again, that could have been thier "finest" moment.

It seems protection by Constitutional law is only relevant to democrats when the people try to get an irresponsible communist ousted from the US Senate. The Constitution does not seem to matter any at all with the BO thugs wanting to push the health care bill without a proper vote if bribery and threats to our representatives does not work to their satisfaction. History has shown that most tyrants have eventually come to an unpleasant end in one way or another. I hope that our democratic processes and laws will work to rid our government of so much arrogant and blatent corruption. It is sickening to watch the lying and deceitful conduct of many so called representatives of the people in the present administration and in the Congress.

Interesting for sure..

I'd like to see how this one turns out.

The tea party wants Menendez recalled from office because he votes for too much government spending, which seems to me puts the state in the unusual position of arguing against its own law and calling part of its constitution unconstitutional.

I figure they shouldn't throw stones when compared to Duke Cunningham, Dennis Hastert, Trent Lott..or better yet, Tom DeLay.

Like much of the tea bagger rhetoric, they don't really understand how the constitution reads. Reminiscent of the town hall meetings of last August.

Maybe those TEA party people are onto something. We could go state by state, determine who is spending too much, and remove them.

Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.

GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted.“I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said.“There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back.“It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still White House counsel, wrote that the “Constitution is an outdated document
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says he cringes when someone calls the Constitution a “living document.”

“"Oh, how I hate the phrase we have—a 'living document,’” Scalia says.“We now have a Constitution that means whatever we want it to mean. The Constitution is not a living organism, for Pete's sake.”
“We can take away rights just as we can grant new ones,” Scalia warns.“Don't think that it's a one-way street.”

The gov controlled school system has dumbed down near 95% of the people in this nation. It will take a little time, but they will get it right or the wholly corrupt system will enslave them far into the future, economically. Oops, it already has.

Our entire congress stands in the open taking bribes daily, spitting on our constitution and in the face of all Americans that fought and died for its principles. The entire congress are traitors to America and they deserve to all be hung by the neck till they are dead. Just the facts.

If the right to vote required a mental stability test, no Republican would ever be elected. The Teapartiers and their sympathizers should be rounded up and sent off to some remote island to howl at one another, so America could proceed with the serious task of pursuing the ideals of fairness, justice, and compassion.

LOL, while these right-wing tea-bagging nuts waste years and money in the court with this silly political stunt, there will have been several election cycles for which Sen. Menendez will have been re-elected.

I agree.
It works both ways; not all Americans support racism.

Let see if we can get ACORN to respond in kind: start organizing Recall campaigns against GOP Leaders in those States allowing such procedures, just to torment GOP haters.

Go ACORN, go!

If the Taxed Enough Already people can recall this one, then maybe we can recall others. There must be something to this recall business.
