Republican Confusion on Right and Wrong

I could go down a list of why Americans are pissed off at Republicans but I would need four or five days worth of writing and band-aides for my finger tips as they caught fire. Has it not been blasted across the television and the papers of one Republican member after another in the Congress thinking that they were untouchable in the eyes of the law? I could literally list out just one blog after another pointing out one after another Republican that broke the law, walked the fine line of the law, and simply ignored the laws that they make for ALL Americans.

I’m not saying that Democrats are any better and have not broken the laws we are supposed to ALL live by. I’m just saying that they haven’t been caught at it in such large numbers as Republicans have. This is the avenue of politics that we are stuck with. Walking the fine gray line and crossing it here and there is not okay and that is why the voting people are pissed off at the Republican Party.

Add one more to the tote board hall of shame from the Republican Party with his bitch slap from the United States Senate…

Ethics Panel Says Craig Acted Improperly

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate Ethics Committee said Wednesday that Idaho Sen. Larry Craig acted improperly in connection with a men's room sex sting last year and had brought discredit on the Senate.

In a letter to the Republican senator, the ethics panel said Craig's attempt to withdraw his guilty plea after his arrest at a Minneapolis airport was an effort to evade legal consequences of his own actions.

The six members of the committee—three Democrats and three Republicans—told Craig they believed he "committed the offense to which you pled guilty" and that "you entered your plea knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently."

The panel also admonished Craig for showing the arresting officer a business card that identified him as a U.S. senator. Craig has been reported to have told the officer at the time, "What do you think about that?"

The committee wrote, "You knew or should have known that a reasonable person in the position of the arresting officer could view your action and statement as an improper attempt by you to use your position and status ... to receive special and favorable treatment."

Being a U.S. Senator does not make you free of sin. Being a Republican U.S. Senator does not make you immune from being gay and just not admitting it to yourself or your wife. Being caught in a gay police sting operation makes you… pretty much persona non grata over at the GOP.

Do as I say and not as I do seems to be the mantra of the GOP and that policy is why the people do not trust them to lead our nation any longer. Not just in Presidential politics but in congressional races across the land. Being an incumbent Republican is no longer the favorite slot to be in when it comes to any political race.

The flood of Republican’s leaving office on their own is the writing on the wall that the gravy train and free for all is over. Those that stay behind and win another term will either have true character or public service was the only gig they had left.

Sometimes the scales of justice are tipped just a bit too far and sometimes they are knocked off the scale completely. The GOP has only the recent past public servants to blame for the massive Democrat voting numbers. And they are voting in numbers to blow the doors off the status quo politics as usual comfort zone.
