PresidentPutz: NOW lets see what the senate sdays about not removing him from his leadership roll without an "Indictment"...

That will change to "Without a conviction"


Wow dude, you are 0 for the thread.

Calm down liberal inbreeds and clean the sploogie outta your shorts. This is an indictment by the Texas DA Ronnie Earle that has a long history of pulling political stunts like this.
The media will have a sploogefest over this for a few weeks and then it will be gone.

Meanwhile, Bush PR spin-babe Karen Hughes is getting her ass handed to her in the Middle East! Hilarious.

As if a PR tour by a Bush hack is all we need to fix our "image."

For serious issues, it's worth zero. Pure entertainment.

didn't anne also say we should basically kill all the arabs? and also incorrectly stated on live TV that canada assisted the US in Vietnam.

she should be ignored. she also is in obvious desparate need of some deep-dicking.

Most excellent - Thx.

Scott McClellan is the perfect spokesperson for dealing with a media that votes predominantly democratic. His inane, idiotic, obfuscating answers must make their heads asplode on a daily basis...delightful. Reporter: "Mr. McClellan, surely you must admit that this indictment hurts your party?" McClellan : "Um, no I wouldn't characterize it that way - my party will be fully catered, with a DJ and some hottie strippers."

/love his cluelessness. He's the perfect tool.
//may have to return to the stripper thread.

sigamajig: yeah, can't wait to hear the BS Rush is gonna tell you about this...

Whoever is filling in for Rush today did a sub-par job with his on-the-fly spin.

All he had was that the prosecutor was a Democrat, and "you know how grand juries are..."

Give them a little time to work out some water-tight circular reasoning.

helix400: Ouch, the Delay defense on this is pretty hard hitting:

Interesting spin. I hadn't heard about that yet. If it has even a kernel of truth to it, then Delay may not be as guilty as everyone here seems to assume he is. We're in day one of the farking indictment. How the fark can anyone here have a farking clue about ANYTHING yet?

Yeah, Delay is a scum-sucking politician, but so is 99% of the asshats in congress on both sides of the aisle. Maybe he's done thousands of things worse that what he's being accused of... maybe, but why not wait until there are actual facts and we see if he gets convicted before getting out the tar and feathers?

If he's guilty, I'll boil the tar myself and consider it one down and 700+ to go.

Fantastic news, now if only there could be more like it. The Republican party needs a good housecleaning. Maybe the real conservatives can retake the party and make something good out of it. The past two decades have seen pretty much every conservative plank stripped out of the Republican platform, and it's high time they were put back.

You have officially exemplified your inability to conduct an intelligent argument. Using a silly picture doesn't make you clever. And I think you missed the point of my original post but that's what I would expect from a n00b like you.

I find it ironic that they mention the Republican party 15 times in that article but compare that to a couple of major news segments from July 2002 about James Traficant, Jr.; found guilty of 10 ethics violations related to his convtion and 8 year prison sentence for fraud, bribery and tax evasion.

And this comparison is more relevant than Delay's indictment itself? What kind of bizarre scoreboard do you have in your head, where the media spending equal time on crimes on "either side of the aisle" -- even if they're years apart and urelated -- is more important than the crimes themselves?

I find it "ironic" that the party that promised in 2000 to restore dignity and credibility to the White House has instead turned it into an unpredictable laughingstock filled with criminals who hide behind spin and Rovian distraction.

While Ted Kennedy is a (most likely) a guilty bastard, what does that have to do with DeLay's guilt?

Delay is as greasy as they come. Hell, I don't like him & I'm a 'publican. Just be careful what you wish for. Every other time he's been under scrutiny he's been able to point at other politicians that have done similar things. You may be able to take him down but he ain't going alone. I'd be willing to bet that congressional members on both sides are scurrying to hide their dirty laundry right now.

Call me when he goes to trial and is convicted. Remember a judge let the chili finger lady file a lawsuit against Wendys.

The spooky part is how it was received by so many Farkers. I didnt realize that so many of you are so poisoned by liberal propaganda.

jpp5006, dude, you are what is wrong with america. I voted for Reagan twice, Bush Sr. once, Bush Jr. once. I chose to do the right thing and vote for the opposition last time. This is the most corrupt government since Grant's. And probably the most dangerous government to have ever graced the "Halls Of Freedm". There won't be any freedom left soon, if we don't take it back.

We'll even extend you sheep the same rights we have when it's done.
 
2005-09-28 01:37:32 PM
More than any politician EVER, via funding to the Republican party, Delay has masterminded the auction of US legislation to moneyed corporations

I intend no hyperbole when I state he is the world's largest threat to democracy.

He deserves an eternity in Federal Pound me in the Wallet prison. The wallet is the only place he'd EVER feel it.
 
2005-09-28 01:37:37 PM
Mosey,

Not zero for the thread. Delay just , for the first time EV-A-R, took the high ground and stepped aside (Temporarilly, per his comments).
 
2005-09-28 01:37:43 PM

Yeah, Delay is a scum-sucking politician


I feel the same way. I hate Delay, he's a horrible Republican, and I wish members of my party would vote him out of this current office.

But an indictment does not mean he's guilty. I've seen plenty of political figures who were indicted, and everyone assumed they were guilty, but when it went to court, the judge essentially laughed at the charges and through them out from lack of evidence. At the end, the political person is finally found to be innocent, but their political career is ruined because of overzealous prosecuters. So that's why I won't call Delay guilty yet. I'll let a judge decide that.

But then again, I hate Delay. So the outcome won't change my feelings about him.

Been a long time in coming. I hope they crucify him.

Is anyone here willing to defend Fox News' use of a partisan political hack as a breaking-news commentator, with no representation given to the other side? Is this what Fox means by "Fair and Balanced"?

Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? ...Buehler?

Thank you for reminding me why I vote Republican.

The idea that someone that agrees with you and your mindless emotional bullshiat might accidentally get into office is scary.

Indeed, just thinking about it makes me want to pull out my checkbook and look up the address of the RNC.

Keep talking...you may even get me to volunteer at the local Republican Campaign office.
