Sending Silvestre Reyes back to Congress each election says much about the average IQ in El Paso. Reyes is the biggest clown on the face of the planet, and he has no spinal column. He will vote the Marxist line every time he gets a chance. A real loser, and a puppet of the left.

Reyes says whatever Pelosi tells him to say. Pelosi has been pressuring Reyes to find a way to keep her from looking as stupid as she really is. I will wait to hear Panetta's response.

We need to vote him out of office.
I agree Congressman Silvestre Reyes is a political hack; he is a party member first, public servant last. We, the Veterans in El Paso hates Congressman Reyes, he has nothing for us, the El Paso VA health care system s_u_c_k_s, not enough doctors, waiting time between doctors’ visits can take up between one year to 16 months, and his local and Washington office will not help. He runs unopposed; therefore, he is elected to congress every election cycle. There is no political talent in this city to run for dogcatcher; at every level of public office from county court to US Congress they all are inadequate and incapable of doing the job they elected to do.

Really now Mr. Reyes, why don't you display some manhood, insteady of following Pelosi, around with a leash on your neck. Remember, Pelosi, did not elect you to that position. I am so tired of you politicans blindly following what one politican says. Pelosi lied and now, you are taking up her cause. Maybe it is time that we elect somebody else that is not afraid to display some orginal thinking, instead of following the so call BOSSES, with your hat in your hand. You apparently have been in office way too long.

The only way we might get him out is to find a Democrat who is Hispanic and make the voters actually make a choice. He will have to work his butt off to make his name a household word. Then hope that the people from Mexico don't come to SR's aid. In short lie like hell then become at least a moderate. Prince Harry Queen Nancy and Court Jester Silvertre what a team.

Reyes and the Democratic Party s-u-c-k-s. I agree:
The biggest lie of all is “The Democrats are for the poor and the Republicans are for the rich”. President Obama and The American Democratic Party are considered Lite-Communism totally out of the Marxist-Stalinist handbook. The rich in this country are those people with imagination and drive to build a better life through small businesses, got off their ass and improved their lives. To understand Marxist-Leninist is to understand that their theory is never to help the poor; their theory is based entirely on the socioeconomics in which the Government owns all means of production and distribution of goods and services. "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs", which essentially states point blank a worker does not get paid according to his abilities, and there is no incentive within the economic theory to improves one outlook or economic situation. In this classless society, the citizens are the subjects of the state and are there to serve the state, thus we have two classes of peoples those who rule and those whom are ruled.

However it was quite okay for Bush to admit that he had received "bad information" from the CIA regarding the WMD's That have yet to be found in Iraq.
Bush 1 was director of the CIA prior to his election and could probably tell line for line how to lie to the incumbent administration to make them look ignorant.
I for one do not doubt the truth is that Torture was used at Guantanamo and other SECRET CIA prisons. They admitted there were more places than just Gitmo but only the ones in Germany were given locations. The CIA is a group of agents who lie and scheme to get information about our enemies and our allies. It is not in their character to tell the truth.
Here we go again. Did it ever occur to you that Clinton (both of them), Palosci, Reno, Gore and a whole bunch of democrats were talking about Sadaams WMDs in the 90s? They were even accusing him of nuclear threats! Can you remember that far back or do just chose not to?
Do you even listen to your stupidity? The CIA cannot tell the truth, but Sadaam was an upfront guy.
The CIA protects your sorry arse while the terrorist are trying to kill you.
Reyes is a fool and a puppet who has always said and done as he's told. There are pathetic human beings and then there is Reyes. He is an embarrasment to the Hispanic race, El Paso and most of all America!

Congressman Reyes is not the brightest light in the chandelier, Intelligence Committee is an oxymoron, there is no intelligence in that committee. It was not the CIA or the Allies INTEL Reports nor was it Secretary of State Collin Powell’s Assessments that Iraq had MWD, it was Saddam Hussein himself, Hussein was at constant war with Iran and with his own Kurds in the North. Saddam Hussein has overstated his inventory of MWD to scare off the Iranian Army. He used Chemical weapons against the Kurds, killing an entire village, this act alone is an act that demonstrated that he had Chemical weapons and was willing to use them.

So you stand here to refute the old "Bush lied, people died" libel?
Just so you know, the facts that there were stockpiles of WMDs in Iraq and a thriving WMD research and development program were considered settled matters prior to the invasion. Even the UN inspectors generally presumed that what they knew about, and were inspecting and inventorying, was only the beginning.
During the first year or two after the invasion, interrogations of one of the scientists produced an admission that they had actually developed an elaborate system of hoax WMD capabilities (falsified progress reports, faked demonstrations, and dummy stockpiles)to deceive Saddam Hussein himself regarding the lack of progress in their actual programs.
Thought you might like to know...
LIE........Not one WMD was found in Iraq and the CIA knew this was true before the war began.....In 1991 they did have them but got rid of them before 2003. Yes I KNOW this to be the truth.

TRUTH Bush baby admitted he had been given bad information about WMD's and about Osama Bin Laden whom he claimed we were looking for and they knew all along he was not in Iraq so they went after Saddam even though a few years earlier he was the honored guest of the Bushes on the ranch and the USA helped to place him in power! Among others we helped gain power were Noriega, Castro, and Chavez.......all are now not our friends if you will....
I have lived through these world changes and have family members and close friends who were part of them!
Cheney's deliberate exposure of the identity of a CIA agent because he was peeved at her husband who refused to lie cheat and steal for him is TREASON, the fact the Bush baby knew about it makes him just as guilty above all other crimes committed by those 2 idiots that was by far and away the worst!! they not only put her life in danger but those of her family, parents, siblings and in-laws and the Congress let them get away with it because it was Republican controlled.

You are factually confused. Records and briefings cataloging the results of UN WMD inspections conducted from the period after the end of the first Gulf War until Saddam, your buddy, threw them out in 2002 say you don't know what you are talking about. There were stockpiles of WMDs in the interwar period, they were often inventoried during this time. The fact that none of them were to be found by the time our troops reached the warehouses they were supposedly still in does not lead one inevitably to the conclusion that Saddam Hussein destroyed them, as we had been trying to get him to do for years, and just forgot to tell us. It leads one to at least the question; "Where the hell are they?" If not to the conclusion that they had been moved. If you recall, the stated concern was not so much that Saddam wouod use the weapons, but that he might provide them to others (non-state actors) who might be willing to use them against us.

You seem to think Saddam complied with the UN's standing demand that he destroy all those weapons, but did not provide any documentation of that fact, so that he could sucker us into invading and deposing him? Yep, he sure did show us.

As for Osama, I suppose you think no one remembers that we had had troops in Afghanistan for months, looking for an opportunity to kill him? What does that have to do with Iraq?

Valerie Plame's husband did more to dime her out than did Dick Cheney, you moron! Asak yourself this question; if Plame was a clandestine operative for the CIA, why did the CIA allow her husband to be sent on a mission- at her recommendation? As for his actual report, it substantiated the President's claim that an ATTEMPT had been made to purchase yellowcake Uranium.

It doesn't matter how angry you are; you are still factually challenged.

Proof of the pudding, Ask Mr Reyes if he will give up his present health care plan and accept the same one he voted for last week, he and Mme. Polosi want us to use. I wonder what the payoff was for his vote?
And dont forget to invite Ossama to your purposed investigation, all of A Q are laughing, but I am not.

All of this information is available on open source. The notion that there were no WMDs flies in the face of the reports of UN inspectors up through around 2001-2002. Sometime around then, Saddam tossed them out. It is a much more reasonable statement to say that the actual state of his WMD development program was far less mature than even Saddam thought. interviews/interrogations of some of his former scientists indicate that they may have been telling him that he had more than he had. If they could fool him, it is no wonder that foreign intelligence services were unable to "see" the actual state of the programs.
But you probably don't care about what actually happened. It is all ancient history now. You should spend your time trying to figure out what your loser Congressman is doing to you with regard to near future energy costs, federal takeover of healthcare, and everyone's favorite shell game, "Where's My Stimulus?"
