    Could you imagine if Republicans were bribing all of these Senators???? Every lib on here would be bitching and moaning... There would be riots in the streets.

    That's the biggest reason I hate liberals. They are the biggest hypocrites on the planet. It's OK for their party to do something but not for the other party... They demand tolerance of their views but F*** everyone elses views. They want "free" health care but want every one to pay for it... I could go on all day.... The sad thing is either they can't understand this thing called "principles" or they flat out don't give a sh^&. Sad, what this country is becoming....

    Hopefully Obama will keep stumping for Democrats and the country will continue to vote them out...

    And replace them with equally corrupt Republicans..... and we'll vote them out..... and replace them with equally corrupt Democrats.... and we'll vote them out.... and so it goes on, until we finally stop electing corrupt politicians of either side.

    With more and more proof coming to light, they have the audacity to stand there and say they aren't bribing anyone for votes. Corrupt assholes.

    Someone needs to read the Constitution. Since they will be paying for this with TAX money the Constitution is clear, every State must be treated EXACTLY the same.

    Republicans do it all the time. Under the last administration in fact they spent more time being strong armed by Bush/Cheney than they did in their home districts.

    Hypocrite.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could, just once in a while, not fall back on the 'They did it too' defense of either party? I for one would really like to hear - from both sides - that previous behavior was unacceptable and it should stop.

    Sure. But when your side pretends that they didn't do it and are now melting down in fauxrage it needs to be pointed out.

    IMO, politicians make deals all the time. It really isn't a big deal (even when Republicans do it).
