It must be terrible being a Democrat and knowing you're stuck with the corrupt Alexi Giannoulias in Illinois, a state Democrats should easily win.

How many articles about lying Republicans do we have to read this year? Every day there's another article of some Repub lying and lying and lying and lying. WE GET IT ! ! !

REPUBLICANS LIE.

Now let's move on and vote them all out of public life as we should.
It's the only American thing to do.

Happy Memorial Day !

"It's the only American thing to do". Haven't seen it put that way, but like it and so true. Fanned for putting it right. Have a great and reflective Memorial Day yourself.

"not much of a story," huh? Mark Kirk violated a federal law - Stolen Valor Act of 2005 to be exact.

I'm waiting for the indictment. Sad having to support the corrupt Alexi G isn't it? Man did you Democrats pick the wrong year to nominate a bank executive, wheeler dealer whose bank is failing.

oh no,oh no,oh no, that is not possible a rethug and nobody is screaming

Let's wait and see if Bearded Blitzer will say something about it.

I'm certain Congressman Kirk voted for the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 which made it a Federal misdemeanor offense to claim, either written or oral, to a any military decoration or medal. I also question his entitlement to the National Defense Service Medal since he was likely on Active Duty for Training with the Naval Reserve rather than being ordered to Extended Active Duty.

Didn't the right wing of America get nuts about blumenthal's Vietnam lies...not sure why they might see this as different....I do however love how "lie" has become "misspoke" for both sides....if it walks like a duck....

Huge difference between the two....

Mark Kirk violated a Federal law by lying about having a Military Medal of Honor.

Blumenthal actually did serve in Vietnam W A R - he was just never deployed.

I also love how "lie" has become "error". . . as in "an error on my resume". . .

Where's the GOP rising star-Marco Rubio, he's mighty quiet? That's right he's under investigation and the GOP don't want him out talking about AZ new law.

Speaking of team credit, I suppose what we look forward to here is another yahoo who does everything possible to not let something pass and then return home and try to take credit for it? Unless he's at a teabagger town hall?
06:30 AM on 05/31/2010
I don't think there's an intention to lie about this specifically here, more of an intention to throw a shovelful of cr ap at the wall and see what sticks. Having said that, I don't know which is worse. I bet all his buddies who contributed to the team effort are THRILLED to watch him take credit.

I was wondering myself how all those other people in his unit felt when they heard him proclaim "I was the Navy's Intelligence Officer of the Year" on C-span.

It's really mind-boggling that these people, attempting to ascend to the most powerful positions in the nation, can be such morons.

How can this guy, and the Democrat who didn't serve in 'Nam possibly think that they can lie about these things and not be found out? Are they unaware that the military keeps records of such things?

And then there's the plagiarist from Idaho. Lifting President Obama's speech to the '04 Democratic National Convention word-for-word! He thought no one would notice?

Where are our best and brightest?

Lying about your service or lack thereof..such as the "misterious" dissapearance of GW Bush military service records (as a gas man for planes) or the number of incidents in which McCain was involved, one of them causing death in Spain..or shooting and killing asleep people in a boat, or BP top kill (of the environment, or....... nevermind. FTS!

It's normal for repubs to lie!

Not again. Another one! What's with the lies? Why even go there? This just seems so wrong. No moral compass.

I was in the military and I understand what receiving recognition or an award means to you, your unit, your division and your command. Their are very important ceremonies performed which strengthens pride, unity, commitment and excellence. Maybe I'm biased, but of all things to misrepresent, this is one of the lowest.
