    Nope, you've labeled me a communist and a socialist. I merely ID'd you as elderly and with a closed mind. I am spot on.

    Yes! Either that or fat white liberal lawyers. His needle has been stuck for quite a few years around here but we humor him. :)

    Interesting, usually the instigator is the one considered the bully.
    I'll run and check who started this thread again.

    First you dont seem to understand the OP, according to his comments in another thread, he is more educated than most. So know your place sir. He will be the one doing the educating around here. ;)

    hahaha I do think you are pushing socialism and that you want socialism-not sure that I called you a communist or a socialist- I do not happen to view 62 as elderly but some might- oh and btw calling someone hoss is a term I have long used and is no different than if I called you bud - you needn't worry, if I wanted to call you a derogatory name I would not hesitate- and if not wanting the Constitution bastardized or not wanting your beloved prezBHO to continue to violate his powers as prez are close minded-then I am good with that

    as far as you being spot on-that is merely in your mind and as I said shows your arrogance- but it did give me a good laugh, hoss

    Personally, I think he should step down, voluntarily, at least until the proceedings are complete. I mean, who does he think he is? A democrat?

    Look who's suddenly interested in enforcing laws and holding people accountable for their actions. I ask myself, what's different in this case?

    Liberal mindset in a nutshell:

    Threaten a reporter. Equals Lose your job.

    Cheat on wife...at work...in the oval office...lie about it to our faces...commit perjury. Equals Hero.

    Holy crap. You've got a congressman who is being charged with a crime and your only reaction is 'yeah, well, Clinton .... uh, Democrats.'
    Simply because he's a Republican, you can't criticize him, you go after ... Democrats?

    Nope. My feeling is he probably needs to go....especially if after due process he is:

    A. Found guilty

    B. Perjurs himself

    C. impeached

    D. Cheats on his wife repeatedly

    I will be all for his removal. Just one of four will seal it for me.

    I cant imagine a politician surviving all four... can you? ;)

    My point was not my opinion...my point was the OP probably supported Clinton being kept in office for much worse. I was pointing to the hypocritical stand some take...but... I know you saw my point.

    should I claim the conservative mindset is to ignore all crimes committed by Republicans because 20 years ago, a Democrat cheated on his wife and lied about it?

    The threat to throw the reporter of a balcony was a B.S. charge, but I agree if there is something here where he broke the law then he needs to step down.

    Personally, I think he should have stepped down solely for this episode. But hey, who am I to espouse my own set of morals onto another, right?

    I agree that the threat was obviously pure posturing. Anyone with half a brain can see that the Congressman was not actually going to throw a reporter off the balcony in front of the world. [edit: It was still, in my opinion, ungentlemanly to say the least, and his constituents should weigh his conduct as their representative during the next primary, but we all know it wasn't a crime.] That said, if he's guilty of the other charges, I demand that he goes down hard for them -- especially because he's a Republican, not in spite of it. Further, I think it's great that the media is performing its actual function as an independent watchdog over our politicians. And I think it's outstanding that the Justice Department is performing (presumably) a real investigation and bringing charges against an alleged law breaker.

    Now I would love to be convinced that they would be acting the same way without regard to the accused's party affiliation.

    You're not seriously going to reduce Clinton's crimes to he "cheated on his wife and lied about it," are you? Just because you agreed with him politically? I don't give a damn that he was (and probably is) a serial philanderer, even if I didn't believe his marriage is a naked power arrangement. But surely you must appreciate the disproportionate power relationship between the President and an intern? There's no job in the world you keep after crossing a boundary like that, and you know it well. And the topic of sex does not give anyone, especially the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, license to commit perjury, suborn perjury, and obstruct justice. I'd go to prison for that. You would go to prison for that. He got a pass because you (plural) agreed with him politically.

    Like I said earlier, that's almost like a term of endearment here. The reporter comes across as a cry baby. This guy grew up in Queens so no big deal. I'm will to bet you're the same way as much as you'll deny it. :)
