    So the republicans were wrong, and I agree fully that they were wrong, but that makes it Okay that the democrats do it? Is this your point? If not, you need to clarify what your OP is really all about.

    And that's why all congressmen and senators with more than one term in must go regardless of how popular they are. Corrupt gits.

    When Republicans start acting like Democrats, we're doomed.

    We have been doomed for quite a few years then.

    No Meister, that was not my point. Yank was spot on (and as usual you hadn't a clue).
    All the hyperbole, hypocrisy and propaganda from the right wing was exposed by Sen. Hatch, and now you and the dwiddles and dudettes piss and moan that Obama and the Democratic Congress engage in deficit spending to fix what Bush&Co fucked up.
    Oh, and what of the $10 billion a month - off budget - to continue the invasion and occupation of Iraq?

    Yep. Nailed that one.

    I reiterate: Throw them out of office if they have more than 1 senate term or 3 HORep terms.

    When you provide an accurate quote in context so that we can actually discuss it, perhaps I will care. Until then, i dont care what you try to claim.
