    Unlike you, I think that any blackeye that my (which unfortunately Mr.Delay was at the time a part of ) government gets is anther chip off of the reputation the government that I took an oath to defend many years ago.

    Yes, that would include Charles Rangel if he gets convicted for anything.So far I donít see anything that he is accused of that could get him a life sentence, Do you?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    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 do realize that all those corporate donors don't actually vote on bills in Congress and thus don't control how a politician who is responsible to his constituents votes? Tom DeLay was not in charge of the Senate, Newt was and DeLay was responsible for his vote to his contituents and was one of 435 in the House. You don't seem to understand how our govt. works.

    You'll stop at nothing to make every post about President Obama.

    He added to the corrupt nature of American politics. That's enough that it should warrant outrage from both sides, at least from the reasonable people on both sides.

    I pointed out how irrelevant this case is to you and the country, it is a local issue yet you and others who aren't familiar with the case just pile on because of your hatred for anyone with a R after their name. Tom DeLay got convincted in the most liberal country in what is a conservative state. This verdict will be overturned on appeal as the case was not proven according to local attornies.

    Geithner avoided paying taxes which impacts the revenue of the govt, Rangel did the same thing, Waters got special taxpayer funds for a bank that her husband was involved with, and Van Jones was a Communist with influence over this President and the policies Obama has implemented shows that influence. Rangel got censured, Geithner is still in his position, let's see what happens to Waters, and Van Jones is now working for Soros.

    That is because what Obama is doing affects us all, what DeLay was convicted of doing had a local affect and had no affect on your or anyone else outside of TX. DeLay was one of 435, Obama is making policy now and has tax cheat Geithner in charge of the Treasury.

    And Delay was guilty of all the above except being a Communist which is not a crime.
