    You really wanna go down that path? Mitt Romeny is collecting a fat check from them giving speeches to the same group (Barclays). And if you whole beef is that they gave money to Clinton, you might wanna check out their PAC funds, and who they gave $$$ to... https://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/loo...852&cycle=2014

    But hey if your point is that we need to get money out of politics and severly restrict it and its influence! Then, hell yea! Im with you.

    But if your point is "look! Hillary bad! Bad!" meh, I agree that I I'm not Clinton fan, but I'm not falling for this partisan argument.
    Sooo what you are saying is that a vote for Hilary is a vote for Romney. That'll definitely separate her from Bernie Sanders!

    I am sick of these partisan threads (from both sides).

    'The other party is evil' crap is absolute nonsense and is destroying America.

    No matter how you describe it, its still a politician.


    Why does it matter? Was Bill Clinton the Secretary of State or something?
    So when the campaign season is in full swing can I expect that whenever a Republican is shown to be unethical you will rush in to point out that they are just politicians?

    Using the power of your political position to stuff your pockets with money from companies that do business with your office is corruption, however. Do you think money in politics leads to corruption or is that just politics? You can't have it both ways.

    Never fear. If you don't look, you won't see anything.

    Politician =/= statesman necessarily, either. When a person in a position that's defined by placing the interests of the country above partisan politics uses that position for political gain, then the position has been corrupted by the person occupying it.

    Its why you will see them talk about how they don't see anything wrong with what was being done. They tend to skip over what the AP stated and their emphasis.
    Yeah. I understand that to the left here nothing unusual has happened. Speaks volumes.

    Not at all, you were wrong which is why the link showed the times for Bilbos request. Moreover it did state 330 requests within a certain time span. So again you were wrong about that it didn't show Tim what was not normal.

    Moreover don't even try with the dishonest BS. My weight has been established here, long before you ever came around Monte.

    Now you really are reaching.....what does BO have to do with Bill Clinton and this issue? My disliking BO peep has no bearing on Clinton and this issue at all. But I am glad to know how you equate all things that is happening, to BO. Thanks for showing how you just can't let go of your man.

    Maybe it was the spelling that threw them off track.



    The State Department's scrutiny, which went beyond the standard ethics requirements for all federal officials, was a voluntary process agreed to by both Clintons to avoid "even the appearance of a conflict of interest," according to a January 2009 memo sent by David Kendall, Bill Clinton's personal lawyer, to Jim Thessin, who oversaw the vetting in the State Department......snip~

    Yeah, the left's argument that all politicians are corrupt combined with their demand for more government control seems, I don't know... crazy?
