“I find it ironic that the left is trying to kill the messenger, CONGRESSMAN Weiner was the one sending lewd photos of himself to at least 6 different women, CONGRESSMAN Weiner was the one who lied to his wife, party and his constituents, CONGRESSMAN Weiner is the one in a public office of great influential power and should be held accountable for his actions, lies, and ultimately the betrayal of our trust. Whether the individual is liberal, conservative, or independent, they should be held to an equally high standard, when we as a people no longer hold our public officials to a higher standard, then we as a nation begin to fail!”

“I find it ironic that the right continue to celebrate someone who proved himself to be a cretin racist - Shirley Sherrod didn't deserve what he did to her, yet you fail to mention that. Not surprising.”

“Please tell me about all the times you've held conservatives up to the standards you're demanding now. I'd like to see documented evidence of it. I challenge Republicans to copy and paste from their histories moments when they were this outraged about the behaviors of people on their side.
Most of us here on the left can PROVE that we're morally consistent. You call us hypocrites, but you're apparently not paying attention to the fact that most of the people doing the criticizing of the left on this message board are FROM THE LEFT. From Obama to Weiner to anyone in between.
We clean up our side of the aisle. We don't do it perfectly, but we're at least TRYING.
Show us you're doing the same, otherwise we're going to assume that your outrage is both false and hypocritical.”

“that is all they have when deep down they know their side failed them.”
“I was born in Denmark, moved to US for better opportunities, ask the Danish what they think about living in a country with such high taxes! Do you really want to live in a socialist country, let me spend my money on what I want, and tell the government to stay out of my wallet. Tired of paying for programs that I do not agree with!”

“Please thomdura, tell that to the people in the ravaged tornado zones...who are depending on the US Federal Government (taxes) to help rebuild their towns and lives!”
