Corruptocrats have never met a corrupt creature they didn't want to hug, and hang onto. The man is a slimey toad, and they want to endorse him anyway.

Once again, we see why the Dem party is filled with such corrupt despicable lowlifes. If a Republican so much as gets caught cheating on his wife, he's done and his career is over. If a Dem isn't actually currently incarcerated, he gets full party support.(Ever hear of Alcee Hastings? He was impeached as a judge for taking bribes from convicts in return for going easy on them. He's now an important Dem House member.) Over time, this is why the Dems are FAR more corrupt than the GOP.

Blumenthal will lose. He IS a liar. CT residents won't tolerate this lying punk.

The man is a disgrace. Blatant, blatant lying to his VFW audience.

WIll agree that too many troubled democrats are KEPT in the party and 'saved'..Hastings, Rangel.

Democrats demand perfection from republicans but tolerate too much from their own party.

Vote out all democrats. Those democrats who fail to speak out about the corruption in their OWN party demonstrate the need for the ENTIRE party to be vote out of any office they run for.

Also waiting for those putz Ensign and Sanford to go in the Republican party.

Also encourage people to go to this YOUCUT website and select a government program that should be cut/shut down. Alcee Hastings was railing against this site, so go and VOTE. Visit the site frequently and VOTE.

These democrats are all clones of each other. Any one of them are interchangeable. Lying, misspeaking, sloppiness, gaffes, bribery......they don't care. It's just a way of life for them. But they don't have a monopoly on this behavior, it's just more prevalent.

This is in line with Democrat history. They founded the KKK, the Copperhead Democrats tried to undermine the nation during the Civil War, the Democrates gave a foreign president a standing ovation for attacking one of our sovereign states. The Democrat party is is party of liars and traitors.

You forgot the Democrats softened the laws against treason after Vietnam so people like Hanoi John wouldn't get hung at dawn. I don't know how they could make it any plainer, they hate this country, and only take office for the "money that's in it" for traiors. I will never get the picture of them giving Calderone a standing ovation for berating Arizona. Who the Hell do they think they are.

We are watching the demise of honor and integrity in our political system. Even though Benedict Arnold turned coat to benefit the British during the Revolution, he was not well received in England after the war was over. This was because, in those archaic times when the measure of a man was his honor,he was seen as the traitor that he was.

Blumenthal's lie is especially offensive because of his five deferments, which paint him as an opportunistic coward. We are reminded of the 58,000 young men and women whose names are printed on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington. Each and every one had more intestional fortitude than Blumenthal ever had.

I'm sure that nearly all of us know a Vietnam vet who suffered physical or psychological damage since his return. A former mayor of our city had both of his legs blown off when he stepped on a land mine. Two soldiers form my childhood neighborhood lost the fight against heroin addiction acquired in Vietnam and died in their thirties. A former classmate was arrested, but then briefly committed to a veteran's hospital for psychiatic help after carrying a rifle in our downtown area thinking he was on guard duty.

A former colleague also committed himself to the VA for psychiatric help after experiencing depression and attempting suicide. He was a medic in Vietnam. He later devoted his life to serving the most low-functioning special ed children with kindness and patience that few people truly possess. Part of his therapy was to write about his experiences. His writing took the form of poetry, which was later published in an especially thought-provoking book.

How dare this phony pretend to be the equal of any of those who served? He did not only "misspeak," he demeaned the service of real men and women by pretending to be their equal. To paraphrase the Bard of Avon, "A lie by any other name is still a lie..."

Maybe this will help. How about Nixon and "I am not a crook". Media went nuts for months. Clinton "I never had sex with that woman". For him it was a resume enhancer. The answer to you question is that liberals NEVER lie. See, real simple.

This action doesn't speak well for the intelligence of Connecticut democrats. Of course, they sent Dodd back to Washington many times. ...must be something in the water up there.

Blumenthal will lose the election. Even Democrats have some honr left,and they hate people like that who pretnd they have military experience to get ahead in their political future. It backfired. Democrats have limits on their acceptance of dishonor, and making up a military record crosses the line.

You're probably right. I was thinking of the pre Carter Democrats. There is not much honor in the post hippie Democrats.

I am hopeful that the era of liberal progressivism run amok is coming to a close, albeit a slow close. Not that they won't regroup and return in a few decades or so.

I just posted links to these vids on another thread. Take heart.
