    Speaking of "PLEASE stating the facts", go back to what I ACTUALLY said: "but when Clinton lied about getting a blowjob, well, THAT was impeachment-worthy!"

    Funny how you jump all over my case about not stating the facts...and misquote me in order to have an excuse to do so.

    BTW - when Reagan, Bush 41, and company obviously LIED about Iran-Contra, where was the conservative push to impeach them? Oh, wait - there was NO conservative push to impeach them.

    And one last thing - it's time for you to get real here. How many married men would admit before Congress - including ALL the cameras of ALL the major networks and ALL the major newspapers in the nation - that they've had a blowjob from a woman who was not their wife? Almost every man I've ever known - myself included - whether red-meat conservative or dyed-in-the-wool liberal - would lie their asses off about it. They (and I) would NOT care that it's an oath-bound statement in front of Congress. They would only care about what would happen to their wives in the public eye after such an admission literally in front of the entire planet...and what would happen behind closed doors.

    There's a French saying: "He who refuses to lie, does not love his wife." That is a true saying.

    You can get on your high horse and claim "Ohhh, he's the president and it's sworn testimony in front of Congress and the American people!" all you want...but if you'll recall, Clinton's favorability rating did NOT drop after his admission - and soon afterwards it went UP. Why? Because MOST American people realized how STUPID it was to go after the President of the United States for an extramarital affair.

    And for you to somehow think that Clinton lying about getting a blowjob is somehow worse than Reagan, Bush 41, and Oliver North getting away with Iran-Contra...that's so indicative of what today's conservatives are like.

    Started off that way, with the dems being the consummate in corrupt parties, masters of corruption. But the reps caught up soon enough to be neck in neck.

    Not only could you not apologize for misquoting me, but you could not even bring yourself to honestly admit what almost every married man knows deep in his heart.

    Hm. For some reason this reminds me of all those conservative pundits and politicians who were so eager to send the nation to war...but had never been in the military themselves. Wonder where the connection is...?

    Yeah, I never did much care for the candidates for POTUS who never served in any capacity. But then, after Korea and Vietnam, can't really blame them too much. But be honest with us, you wouldn't have been any more for war if all involved in the decision were decorated veterans.

    You might find this difficult to believe, but there are many married men who have never engaged in any form of sexual activity with anyone other than their wives.

    If I were to cheat on my wife, what do you suppose would be more hateful to her—my having cheated on her, or my willingness to lie or be truthful about it?

    If I were to cheat on my wife, and this were to become publicly known, would this be more shameful to me, or to my wife?

    What is it that you are claiming that “almost every married man knows deep in his heart”?

    All that's a fine bit of nonsense that's disregards what happened prior. The whole world, including Hillary already knew about Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones and Juanita Brodderick. It was in the public 24/7/365. He wasn't trying to spare Hillary a thing. In fact, it was because of Hillary's dealings with HER law firm that got him to that chair to begin with. And he didn't just lie about getting a blowjob. Put that busted arrow back in the trash where it belongs.

    I suppose you still believe Al Capone was just a lowly tax cheat.

    I remember the big hullaballoo when Clinton was first elected, because he was the first one who hadn't been in the military.

    As a retired Navy man, yes, I would generally much prefer a war veteran to someone who had never been in the military...but I would most certainly prefer someone who had never been in the military to someone who is a chickenhawk...

    ...and Bush 43 - he of the "boutique" Air Force squadron that never left American soil - is IMO a chickenhawk, as Dick Cheney and almost every conservative pundit you care to name.

    And I haven't cheated on my wife either - we've been married nearly 22 years, and our relationship is the envy of all who know us - that's not bragging, that's simple fact. For instance, we have never even once had an argument over money - not too many couples that have been together as long as we have can say the same. My wife and I have honest-to-goodness true love...and believe me when I say that I hope you have the same, for I wish that everyone else had the same.

    But the fact that neither you nor I have ever cheated on our wives does NOT change the fact that if either you or I did, and if we were placed in front of Congress with all the world's media's cameras focused on us, either one of us would lie our asses off regardless of what oaths we took to tell the truth...IF we thought that there was even a ghost of a chance we'd get away with it.

    You can claim otherwise all you want...but that doesn't mean much seeing as how you weren't the one with the cameras rolling, with live feed to all the networks.

    Maybe you would tell the truth...but if that's the case, then you are part of a very, very small minority of married men.
