Another Republican Exits in Shame

The tote board of Republicans exiting the political field is heavy by one more and this time it’s a Rep from New York. Is it just me or is it more or less a secret that a lot of the folks in the Republican Party are leaving office in disgrace because of the “I am Caesar” mentality? I would think that if you serve in an office in our federal government that you of all people should live to a higher standard. Isn’t that what most politicians run on during any campaign?

Maybe we should all face the facts that nobody is perfect but it seems that there is a little bit more infidelity and indiscretion going on if you have a big old red R next to your name. Maybe the days of Jack Abramoff and the presumption of omnipotence in the Republican Party are over and this is just the tip of the iceberg? Over at the Washington post they have this on the latest political rat to jump ship…

Fossella Decides Not to Run for Reelection

Rep. Vito J. Fossella (R-N.Y.) announced yesterday that he will not seek reelection in November, the fallout of a drunken-driving arrest in Alexandria earlier this month that revealed he has a child through a long-standing extramarital affair.

But Fossella said he will finish his term, providing welcome news to Republican leaders who had publicly encouraged his departure. The GOP lamented the prospect of a special election in that district, especially after losing three House seats in such elections since March.

"This choice was an extremely difficult one, balanced between my dedication to service to our great nation and the need to concentrate on healing the wounds that I have caused to my wife and family," Fossella wrote to his constituents.

Fossella, 43, becomes the 26th House Republican to announce an intention either to retire or to seek different office in November. Four others left the House in the middle of this Congress.

It makes you wonder why the Republican Party is the political party to follow if you follow a high moral lifestyle? It appears that many of the good old boy club of the federal government is more about do as I say and not as I do.

People wonder why all of the polling numbers in the primaries are not matching up with the end result of the elections and there is one simple answer to that question. Republicans are jumping ship to the political leaders not selling more of the same mentality. Somehow the Newt Gingrich contract with America was hijacked and in its place was put a contract on America. Give back to America was translated to take from America as much as you can as fast as you can before you get caught.

Decades from now the official truth will be let out on all of the mishaps and injustice during this past decade and the shame will not fall on the left side of the political isle. While politicians think that the people are just sheep, the political process and the new information age is educating the masses at a level never seen before. Eventually, the truth will surface and it is the party that supported the deception that will pay the price. Americans are fickle people like that and the chips land where they land on the side of right over political party loyalty.

Tote board is heavy by one more deceitful Congressman.

What did Feeto Fosmella think? That Haris Saladjic was the only foreigner in his district? There are plenty of Orthodox Christians who will punish him and his mentor Gallagher for what they did to us in Yugoslavia and Ukraine. We want results in Cyprus, Epirus, Nagorno and Balkans, now, before we vote. Or we make electoral trouble.

Giuliani corralled protesters against 1999 Serb cathedral midnight Easter while McCain told airmen to write Happy Easter on bombs, because Joe Dioguardi's heroin lobby paid them. Orthodox average one and a half graduate degrees while you popecrawlers are dropouts, needing unions to show you around. You may have the voting carcasses but we have the brains and money and are sending your jobs to India where they know how to fight muslims.
