I'm not defending this guy. You just need to quit being such an ahole about it that's all. And that goes for Obama too. You defenders of that guy need to wake up. This country can't afford to be 15 trillion in debt. How do you think that's going to help anyone? You've let this moron add 5 trillion to our national debt.
This is how stupid Obama voters are,....he runs on a platform of "hope and change" and "yes we can", and you all scream like little children at his rallies.
I thought Mr. Bigmouth was the anti war candidate. Mr. Peace and Love,......what a crock of lies that was. Where are all the hypocrites like Cindy Sheehan now? What's the matter with you people, do you have brain deficiencies? I bet the average IQ of an average Obama voter is under 90. You listen to slogans, you're uninformed, you're undereducated, you're really incapable of understanding what's really going on.
Then what does Obumbler do, he bails out big business on top of it all. That may sound good, but in the long run we are all paying a terrible price in the form of a higher national debt and less opportunity.
He's doing a lot better than the predecessor was. And he's accomplished a few things despite the conservatives.

But now that the conservatives have claimed victory in the house, it will be interesting to see what they do. Especially since they've done nothing but talk and hit the TV circuits.

At least we aren't hypocrites about it. The guy resigned didn't he? The difference is that Dems don't ever seem to resign, they fight to the bitter end. I guess because liberals are such scum bags they don't care if their scum bag politicians stay in office or not.
lol! Really? The man had no other escape holes to run to. He was cornered and intelligent enough to know it. You should read more if you want to know the facts and become intelligent, son....

"...His immolation was swift by any measure, but it began last week, according to Remy Stern, editor-in-chief of the website Gawker.com .

In a phone interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, Stern said Gawker first became aware of the story late last week when the woman who had the exchange with Lee sent the website an e-mail tip about the encounter — including an attachment photo of a bare-chested Lee flexing an arm muscle. Through data embedded in the photo file, Gawker determined the photo was taken in Washington, D.C.

Gawker was then able to link Lee's g-mail address to his Facebook account. Stern said Gawker also checked to make sure the woman had no political agenda or grudge against Lee. He also said that the website did not pay the woman and that her only condition was anonymity.

On Tuesday, Gawker e-mailed Lee's press secretary to inform him the story they were pursuing. Minutes later, Lee's Facebook account vanished.

"It was very telling," Stern said.

Lee's press secretary then sent Gawker a copy of an e-mail that it said the congressman had sent to his staff on Jan. 23 alerting them that his e-mail had been hacked. Stern noted that Jan. 23 was well over a week after the woman and Lee had begun corresponding.

Gawker informed Lee on Tuesday night that they were planning to post the story the next day. Gawker got no response from Lee, Stern said.

Gawker posted the item on Lee at 2:33 p.m. EST Wednesday. It told the story of a 34-year-old Maryland woman and government employee who had an online encounter with Lee in response to an ad she placed last month in the "Women Seeking Men" section of Craigslist.

Gawker reported that Lee identified himself as a divorced lobbyist and sent the photo of him posing shirtless in front of a mirror. It said the woman eventually broke off the contact with Lee after becoming suspicious that he had misrepresented himself.

Just over three hours later, AP received an e-mail statement from Lee making a vague reference to the incident and announcing his resignation.

"It was stunning," Stern said.

By Thursday night, politicos from Washington to Buffalo, N.Y., were bandying names of possible candidates in the yet-to-be announced special election for Lee's seat. They included White House spokesman Bill Burton, a Buffalo native who had been approached about making a run, according to a knowledgeable official who asked not to be identified revealing private discussions. The official and several other Democrats said Burton is unlikely to seek the seat in the Republican-leaning district. Possible Republican candidates included former state Assemblyman Jack Quinn III, the son of former Rep. Jack Quinn...."

But that's going to be hard to do since they've ingrained it to the public for decades.

All you're doing is labeling the entire group for the actions of a few. My post stands until its proven they are disproportionately guilty of infidelity its a non issue. The only person who is guilty of anything is the person who engaged in the act.

Until conservatives get their marriages 100% correct, they shouldn't tell other's that they can't get married. Just my opinion.

LOL...so sad. So your hopes and assumptions make it all good for your repub creep.
Raise your hand if you think Obama's kid has unsafe sex...and lower if you think your hero, Palins, kids engage in unsafe sex.
Amazing how you morally superior repubs thinks the actions of dem makes your mistakes anything but hypocritical.
You would have believed everything this creep says, and as you do now, instead make-believe Obama did what this repub creep did...just cause he's a repub.
You are the definition of sheep my son. You think your party colors define your character, and the character of those that belong to the GOP.
Hate to break your silly childish logic, but it doesn't. You've seen enough examples throughout history, but you've brainwashed yourself to ignore reality.
You compare children! You compare children to teens to young adults! You compare average to priveleged! When Clinton was elected because of Perot, he did not have much at all in wealth. In fact he and Hillary blew mos tof what they earned and were corrupted. A few months ago they throw a five million dollar wedding for their daughter with another corrupted family on the groom's side. In a neutral media nation, there would have been months of comedy skits on this event alone. And we ain't a neutral media nation. The point being, that people make opinions on what they see. For decades it has been the same. Oh there are criticisms when there is no choice. And there are remarks and everything else. But the venom is much worse for a conservative. Even comparing two in the same comedy or sit around discussion bring ugly remarks and disdain compared to the progressive person who did wrong. Its no wonder we are at this point today. Don't push people to far. I warn you. The tea party needs everyone it can get including voting progressives to get us back on track. Your movements can wait as we must save our nation. And it starts with you realizing that many of your politicians are traitors as many of ours are. It is an uphill battle. If there is no America left then no one wins anything.
