I'm not saying your right Buff. I'm saying your inability to see other peoples points of view makes you narrow minded.

Parse words all you want. I was referring to corrupt influences in Washington as well as outside Washington. Sort it out for yourself. Have a nice weekend.

I must have missed it... in which post did you name the Democratic equivalent to grover norquist and the republican anti tax pledge? And, tell me again, how many Democrats have signed it?

"Hello gobb62.. it appears yourself, and usa, have validated my point. There is no democratic equivalent to the anti tax pledge"

Wrong again, Buff. You just refuse to see corruption on your side of the aisle. Enjoy having your head buried in your backside.

Hello gobb62.. it appears yourself, and usa, have validated my point. There is no democratic equivalent to the anti tax pledge that virtually all republicans have signed. The simple fact is, as the author intimated, there is only one party who has signed a pledge to a private and unelected citizen that prohibits them from preforming an essential function of their position, thereby putting party above country and personal ambition above national interest. Have a nice day, republicans..

"Hi gobb62.. I wasn't aware Nancy Pelosi was the head of a political organization, what's the name of it?"

Buff - You know good and well that Piggy Pelosi was SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE when she PUSHED OBAMACARE THRU IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. And she made no secret of the pressure she put on her little toadies to vote along with her.

Buff, threats are threats no matter where they come from, it doesn't matter if it comes from inside or outside of Washington.

The only thing you're doing is splitting hairs.

Hi gobb62.. I wasn't aware Nancy Pelosi was the head of a political organization, what's the name of it? I also wasn't aware that she made Democratic candidates, blue or any other color, sign a pledge, what was the name that pledge again? I wonder what percentage of congressional democrats signed this pledge I never heard of.. something ironic just occurred to me, republicans gripe about a slice of American taxpayers not paying any federal income tax but these same republicans lack the ability to vote for this group to pay federal income tax or they will be in violation of the pledge they signed.. quite a predicament.

Well Buff, I guess that means that Madame Pelosi also threatened Blue Dog Democrats to get Obamacare pushed through the back door.

Hi gobb62.. the reason that 95% of congressional republicans have signed it is because grover has threatened to pull his and his organizations political support from any candidate that doesn't sign. The threat is to the the candidates political career and the vast majority sign. Although a small but growing number are publicly rebuffing the pledge, apparently having realized that taxation is an inherently governmental function.. Google it, see for yourself..

Well Buff, when you say "under threat" that shows that your comment is merely your own opinion.

"President Barack Obama says he “felt the spirit of Jesus Christ” on a recent visit to Israel and it made this Easter particularly special for him."

Maybe there is hope!

Hello gobb62.. how exactly it is a theory? Grovers pledge has been signed by app 95% (238 of 242- house, 41 of 47- senate) of current congressional republicans and all but 1 of the 2012 r presidential candidates..

"Hello all.. I'm afraid the author has it backward. It is the vast majority of republicans who have sworn an oath to party, not country. It is in the form of the pledge they signed to grover norquist, under threat, no less."

Another proud member of the tin foil hat-conspiracy theroy club.

We should let Chuckles alone about his lack of communication skills. After all, he's a perfect example of all that's wrong with our education system. He's college educated! Impossible to believe that he might have graduated. I firmly believe his alma mater is the Sam Houston Institute of Technology! Maybe, if he really DID graduate, the degree was from Cracker Jack University.

"Gay Rights" - What rights are excluded from Gays that others have? The right to marry? They have just as much right to marry as I do. I am a man and am free to marry any woman stupid enough to say yes. And any gay man can do the same exact thing.

"Voting Rights" - What party was George Wallace affiliated with when he was running for president in 1968? What was his campaign platform? "Segregation Now!"

"Free Speech" - You mean like Dr. Ben Carson exercised a few weeks ago at some dinner where the president was? I don't remember Liberals standing up for his right to say what he did.

You're right Vince, the left always tries to blame Scooter but Armitage did the blabbing.

Chuck - reading cue cards off your favorite Liberal website does not make a valid argument. Pick any of those buzzwords you listed and explain what was done and how it was unconstitutional.

I'll check back in a couple hours.

Scooter Libby did what exactly? He certainly did not expose a covert agent. That was someone named Armitage, if memory serves.
