    Whatever his motivation, he's been vocal lately.
    And you know how well Obama reacts to criticism of any kind.
    The Menendez story is over 2 years old and the trips to the Dominican Republic were rumored to be more than what the article talked about.

    Greetings, bubba.

    I hope these stories aren't true. I was somewhat relieved to read that the girl in the story was nearly 17 years old at the time these parties were taking place, (not that it changes anything), but they weren't seven years old or younger, which seems to be the case of the mass sham "weddings" that take place in parts of the ME between grown men and very young girls who are sold by their parents! That is definitely wrong, and "weddings" don't excuse the perversion!

    Also, it just seems odd that anyone who has spoken out against Obama's actions become targets to smear, even when it's a member of his own party!

    Color me surprized. I didn't think the Holder Justice Department would ever go after a fellow Democrat. Certainly not a sitting senator, anyway.

    On the other hand, let's see if they actually file the charges.
    What, are you kidding me??? This has NOTHING to do with justice, that slimy ahole Holder is the AG for crying out loud. This has all to do with Menedez opposition to Obama's 'give Iran a nuke' policy and his support for Israel and Bibi. Obama already has control of his media, now he needs to control the last of the rank and file.
    The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!

    Holder would never do his job against a fellow Democrat. However in this case Robert Menendez goes against Obama's foreign policies. Thus he became one of Obama's targets to go after.

    Ya know what's not odd, but should be, is that a DP member on this very thread essentially portrayed Holder as the noblest of public servants and that no one should be surprised his DOJ may bring charges.
    That in and of itself is pretty bizarre but objectivity alone requires mention of the current friction between Obama & Menendez ... that mention wasn't there.

    I think, yes and no. Is that really corruption? Well, yes. But it's also called politics. That's the way they roll these days. There is a very thin, almost invisible, line between politics and organized crime. One side evades the laws, one side makes them.

    Seems I heard that somewhere along with a long, long list of lies. Throwing rocks from a glass house...my, my.
    A defender of Obama - Nah, not really. Bibi has a track record on B**** about Iran & being nuke ready going back decades.
    Both are not relevant.
    The deal is the point.

Yes, Bibi is agressive in establishing a secure state, but the next leader will inevitably be the same if a bad agreement is forced. The ME solution doesn't exist. There will be no solution, only a tempering of hostilities. Rather than becoming embroiled in the day to day fist fights, we should stand outside, willing to place our weight on the side of the more righteous at the time. That's the best we can hope for. This is not acquiescence. It's an admission of reality.
    For any Israeli -Palestinian peace deal, Lebanon, Hezbollah in particular and Hamas have to be neutralized- And as Iran is their supplier they play a part - Forced by sanctions is still forced.

    I wouldn't consider it corruption unless it involves the politician doing something they otherwise would not have done in due course.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.
