While I’m specifically comparing the parties' platforms, they do translate to some substantial differences in implementation. I don’ believe all Democrats are good guys and all Republicans, bad. However, I do believe there are some good guys. I admittedly have my cynical moments, but I’m no curmudgeon.
Fair enough.

Paalleease. While Coburn and plenty of other Republicans are first-rate retards, saying that the Democrat party is the party of human compassion is ridiculous. Unless, of course, you consider the likes of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, etc. and their efforts to take from the middle class to further enrich corporations as being compassionate.
To be fair, the Democrats only LOOK like the party of compassion compared to the heartless, hateful wretches in what remains of the Republican Party. It's easy to look good standing next to a Republican...:)

The people of OK need to offset Coburn and Inhoffe and send these jerks packing. They are a disgrace to the human race.

It's tempting, but we shouldn't penalize the people because of idiotic actions by their idiotic "leaders."
If these jerks, who are elected by the people of OK, represent Oklahomans, they do not deserve any aid because they would not be smart enough to use it constructively, because they must be as dumb as their senators, since they are the ones who elected the jerks.

I think there are lots of good Republicans, the problem now is that they are not speaking out against all the complete wackjobs that are taking the perty down. That IS a problem, they are the only ones who could save the party but, too many of them are single issue people, God, Guns, Gays and Taxes, take your pick.

Greed, hate, inequality, 2nd amendment (distorted that is) and if that's it, well, not very good Americans IMO.

I have no more sympathy for those "good Republicans" any more though, in order to still be one, you have to hate too many of your fellow citizens and if that is the case, I have no use for them anymore. Too many of them just fall in line and believe the President is some nefarious whatever they want to make him out to be, truth is, Obama is a moderate Republican, he's no Liberal but to hear a Republican talk about him he's the devil, Socialist, Communist, blah blah blah, a caricature.

The pickings are pretty slim right about now with so much sucking up to the extremist tea partiers. Their leadership is weak, frightened and willing to sell out their constituents.

I hope Coburn can find something else to take away from his state.

He can set the example.

Considering all of the scandals going on within the Democrat party at the moment, yeah, right.

It’s all aggressive Faux marketing — Obama-scandal-rama!

Allegations of multiple scandals, but none pointing to the White House. My current favorite is Alex Jones’ conviction that the Oklahoma tornado was an Obama conspiracy.

Of course, we must ask, what did Alex know and when did he know it? What was Mitch McConnell’s involvement in the cover-up? Who’s going to jail? John Boehner?

I think I’ve got the hang of it now and it’s kind of fun making wild insinuations.

Fox marketing? Interesting. Since when did CNN become a Fox affiliate?

Ugh, stay away Alex Jones'. That man is a nut.

CNN and other news media report on the IRS issue and other issues in the news, but despite all the insinuations made by the extreme right, there is no scandal at the White House. No evidence of inappropriate WH behavior, only obsessed souls pointing fingers to create the impression of such scandals.

Alex Jones is the extremists’ extremist. sadly, crazy can be entertaining. He’s a magnet of paranoid minds. But, I’m confident that there’s no truth to the rumor that Alex was born in Kenya, the daughter of Asian-Icelandic Taoist terrorist parents before his sex change procedures were completed in Benghazi.
