Van Jones, Tim Geithner come to mind but then again I guess if you are a Communist and a tax evader that is a badge of honor in the Democrat Party.

    Oh I didn't realize that I was supposed to condemn Charlie Rangel in the Tom DeLay thread. My mistake. And we live in a global world now, haven't you heard? Minnesota and Texas aren't so far apart, after all, we're having a conversation right now aren't we?

    What exactly did DeLay do that affects you and your family compared to what Geithner, Waters, Rangel, Van Jones and others have done? Looks like I am more of a Texan than you are.

    You are right, TX is fiscally responsible and hasn't elected a Comedian to the Senate or a former Wrestler to the office of Governor.

    So your argument is that Tom DeLay shouldn't be attacked because he's not the only criminal politician in the news? That makes sense. Oh, wait, no, it doesn't make any sense at all.

    If you want to elect politicians to a national office and defend them while they accept hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporate lobbyists who are influencing their vote -- once again, in a NATIONAL OFFICE -- that's fine because they will still be held accountable for breaking laws.

    But you're telling us that what Tom DeLay did doesn't affect us? The leader of the House of Representatives was corrupt and taking money for corporate lobbyists in exchange for his vote... and that DOESN'T have any effect on us? Bull.

    you seem to be confused...what does obama have to do with delay? delay was convicted.....so, why bring obama into the conversation? obama has nothing to do with the fact that delay was CONVICTED. why try to change the topic to obama?

    Sorry, not interested in this conversation. Only interested in talking about Tom DeLay in the Tom DeLay thread. Something you haven't done, by the way. You haven't said anything about him, just attacked others. I guess that's proof of how wrong you are.
