    Hopefully not too little too late..Why are Republicans so slow to anger and show teeth??? Especially in cases in which they are in the right.

    The problem is they don't have much thats recent.

    Nobody gives a shit about something that happened 15+ years ago.

    How many Dems that are up for election this year were in office when that happened anyway?

    It just sounds like whining and trying to avoid responsibility.

    "But BUT MOM!! Remember when Billy..."

    What I think people want to hear from a Rep up for election is that they are disgusted and disappointed in their leadership. People can respect that, of course it means biteing the hand that feeds... but i'm sure the establishment will forgive and forget if they retain their seat.

    really? then why do dems care so much now about IMs from 3 years ago? Why were Dems SOOO interested in Bush's DUI 20-some years ago during the 00 elections? Why were dems SOOOO interested in Bush's military records from 30-some years ago to where Dan Rather and crew falsified documents just to get a few more voters?

    Not only that, Foley's IM's didn't kill anyone. He's just a sick individual. Kennedy had the balls to LEAVE A WOMAN DROWN and then say that he has higher morals than any Republican. He didn't even serve time, or lose his job, even though he technically murdered her.

    oh, i forgot...you're only interested if it aids your agenda.

    Franks was aired out in public a long time ago and is done and over with.

    The IMs are recent public news and part of an ongoing investigation.

    See the difference?

    FWIW I never cared about the DUIs. The military service was somewhat relevent because we were/are at war.

    Interesting....since we were told again and again how irrelevant Clinton's military record (or lack there of since not only was he a draft-dodger but he spoke publically about how much he "loathed" the US military) was when he was getting us involved in military conflicts and engagements all over the world.

    In fact, to speak of Clinton's record was asking for major condemnation and criticism from the left for refusing to let the past alone...for refusing to allow that people could change, that Vietnam was an unpopular war...for refusing to acknowledge that a person's past military history (or lack thereof) was relevant to the military decisions they were making at present.

    Please be honest here, RedHots, no one is saying that the Repubs didn't play these stupid games as well...but at least be intellectually honest enough to admit that the nonsense about Bush's military record was nothing more than a Democratic game to try to make Kerry look good and Bush look bad. If Bush had been "their" guy then his war record would have been handled just like Clinton's was....and anyone who mentioned it would have been shamed just like they were during the Clinton years. if your memory is foggy just check out how many Democrats came out in support of Bob Dole because his military record was so much more impressive than Clintons...please check up on the number of Dems who investigated Clinton's draft-dodging or his anti-military remarks....
