“Do the people who are hawking for a Hilary run realize that since 1988, (with the exception of Obama's 8 yrs) we have had either a Clinton or Bush in the WH since 1988?
If Jeb Bush gets his wish to run, it will be a Clinton or Bush in 2016.

“Not gonna happen. Nobody is going to pick Jeb Bush, and the majority of Democrats don't want Hillary (even though they won't openly admit it).”

“At least with the clintons the country gets better.”
“That's the law...if people have a problem with it...voice it to your local Congressman.
Just because they socialize with each other in high school, doesn't change the law.
The reason this is a big stink is, the 18 yr old is a lesbian.
So, this becomes a cause celebre' for Gay rt activists.

“and maybe because it becomes a cause celebre, the law will get changed. Unfortunately, its not till the stupidity of these situations gets publicity that something is done about them. The simple solution is to put an exception in the law based on the difference between the ages, not the actual age. The way the law works now there is a constitutional problem with it.”
“That's the problem...you do have a choice.
I know, easier said than done.
It may be very hard and take a while but we have choices.
I have a family member who has been in a bad marriage for decades and the same lament; I have no choice.
I think staying in a bad marriage becomes a habit and we convince ourselves we have no alternative.
If your spouse is making your life miserable and refuses to go to counseling or make a concerted effort to change....you have choices.”
“I know parents who prosecuted a 19 yr old woman for sleeping with their 15 yr old son.
I don't know if it was right to do that...but they did.
It was against the law and they were with in their rights to do it.”

“The difference is, however, that by the strange way the law is worded, they two could legally have sex for several months, then it becomes illegal for a few months, then legal again. 17 and 15 years olds do normally socialize in high school, 19 and 15 years olds so not.”
“Again, if you're anti profiling, why is ANY profiling ok?
I'll post again what I believe about extreme idealogues of either the right or left.
Your opinions are invalid.
Whatever your 'team' does is ok as long as the other side is hurt.
Kind of like a sporting event.
Your independent thought and powere of discernment is gone...you're lobotomized as you sit in the corner soiling yourself laughing.
btw...no one believes you think this is a riot...try not to act too kool, it gets lost in translation via the internet.”
“This amuses you?
Pretty sad state of affairs in our country today.
I may not agree with your political views but I wouldn't want this to happen to any American.
It was more than paperwork.
It was delays, it was illegal and inappropriate questions. Info gathering and sharing, intimidation and audits.
btw....When did two wrongs make a right?
You don't like profiling of any sorts (I assume from your post) but it's funny when it's a group of people who you disagree with politically?
How does one rationalize that and find it funny?”

“Delays...how awful. I guess a flood of groups applying for tax-exempt status in the wake of Citizens United couldn't POSSIBLY have anything to do with that?
Besides, aren't these groups pro small government? Small government, more work = takes longer to get things done. They didn't really think this through, did they?”

“Just curious. What they did was wrong and heads should roll, but can you tell me which laws, exactly, were broken?”
OutToLunch on May 19, 2013 at 13:05:33
“what amuses me about this is the response from the right.
....all the fake outrage, their usual cries of per se cution, and the absolutely stunning hypocrisy.
it's not just funny.... it's a freaking RIOT.
btw, think they're still "investigating" Be ng ha zi?? or looking for O's birth certificate??”
“Keep repeating that to yourself if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy.
The administration is hoping they can wait the scandals out, until the press and public become disinterested.
Probably hoping for a world event and if one doesn't happen, create something.
Whatevs...dude's corrupt, deal with it.”
