    All politicians state you should follow the law. Should we decry the ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY when a single one of their politicians is found breaking the law? Should we call all Democrats hypocrites for being a "party of following the law" because Richard Jefferson had cash stashed in his fridge?

    If people wanted to say "This man is a hypocrite" that'd be one thing, that'd be something to debate and talk about. But its never "this man", its democrats doing what they always do...identity politics. Republicans, in general, run on a platform that you should try to be a moral, upstanding person (How DARE they), and thus when ONE of them has a moment of failure somehow its free for all on the part of liberals to attack not just that person but the ENTIRE PARTY for being "hypocrites".

    Sorry, I never remembered the party platform of "be perfect", I don't remember the party platform of "never make a mistake". Those aren't parts of the Republican platform that I know of...perhaps you can enlighten me.

    If a parent was an abuser of substances all through their youth and still at times in their adulthood but told their children they shouldn't abuse substances and tries to hide the fact they do not have the willpower or the ability to fight that urge themselves should that parent be demonized, attacked, derided, and called scum NOT for the action he's taking with substance but for telling his children they shouldn't abuse substances?

    We have many on this forum that say they smoke pot. Yet if they have children do they smoke it in front of their children? Do they tell their children that they shouldn't do drugs? If they do, should we get social services in there to strip the children away from them...not because they're doing drugs, but because they're HYPOCRITES hurtfully and wrongfully trying to tell their children to be better than they are.

    Yes, how HORRIBLE of the Republican party. Telling people they should try to have a stable family, that it is good to have parents that actually are attentive to the needs of their kids, that you should attempt to spend time as a family, that being a moral upstanding person is the right thing to do. I mean seriously, what the hell are they thinking? Don't they know that out of the millions of republicans out there 100% of them will likely falter at this at some point in time? Which means its OBVIOUS that they should never even push those things as good things, or something society should strive to do, because someone may screw up with it at some point and that just proves its worthless to do.

    Oh, wait, the sanctity of marriage thing. Hahaha, yep! You Got me there! All us Republicans or Conservatives when these things come out always go "Haha, wonderful job there Joe! You were definitely banging that woman behind your wifes back. Great job! Atta boy Joe! That's the right way to do things, Hoo Ah!"

    Wait, no. Generally I remember them coming out and repudiating the act as being something against what conservatives and republicans generally feel is correct behavior. I generally see Republicans coming out not trying to define what "is" is but saying "I was wrong" and if they DON'T then becoming a laughing stock even within their own party.

    But liberals don't see that, liberals don't acknowledge that, because THAT actually shows the republicans FOLLOWING their moral views and feelings in regards to marriage and family values and well...pshh....everyone knows THAT'D be bad to acknowledge politically because it'd sure take the sting out of hounding those mean hypocritical evil vile republicans.

    Give me a break.

    Speech means little when you fail to live by what you preach.

    Again, please show how this man ending up making a mistake (and then owning up to said mistake, and admitting it was a mistake and was wrong) is somehow showing that "The republican party" and those that adhere to it are somehow hypocrites or not practicing what they preach.

    I don't see "The republican party" or those that are part of it saying what this man did was right. I don't see THIS MAN saying what he did was right. But again, as I already said, all the ways they ARE actually adhering to their beliefs and views doesn't matter and won't be recognized by you and other liberals because that takes away your talking points and your little political buzzwords by focusing on what the majority of republicans, including this man, are doing and instead of focusing on a singular act.

    Again, I find it funny how you won't touch any of the analogies, because they show how completely idiotic this is and how off base and, more to the point, that this is nothing to do with morals or how outraged people are but its something for hyper partisan liberals to try and spin to use to gain political points and nothing more.

    It's almost as if some Liberals are saying that their standards are lower than everyone else's.

    People who have screwed up are often the best to teach others how NOT to follow the same path. They have some of the best experience especially when they recognize their error or have overcome such adversity.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Sanford needs to resign from office and I have a feeling will be doing just that in the coming days.

    oh what joke your contention is since you obviously must believe that if the proud governor was a Democrat the Retros would say a negative word!
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    In that case....the Republican party is the perfect group to be preaching on this issue....

    Kind of like the way the GOP did with Spitzer.
