    I've noticed an interesting trend here among active right-wing/republican posters. They seem to labor under the misconception that democrats get away with every bad thing they ever do and republicans can't sneeze without an inquiry and media firestorm.

    If I had a nickel for every time somebody said: "If a republican did that...yadda yadda yadda" I'd probably have enough money to become a supporting member here. :lol:

    Newsflash, republicans are not saints. There is absolutely no evidence to suggest either party is any more moral or ethical than the other. They both have their fair share of scumbags. And whenever they're caught with their hand in the cookie jar, they both get it with both barrels from the media and the public.

    Just imagine if a republican president falsified intelligence documents and lied to Congress in order to justify invading a foreign country. He would probably get impeached on the spot. :rofl:

    Democrats have done some good things, I'm sure of it. I can't name any, but there must be SOMETHING.

    Other than that, I'm not sure it's a case of insisting they never get caught as just being disgusted as hell at the way they revise history and lie about present motives and actions, by calling whatever vile thing they're doing THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what it is, then accusing the other side of doing whatever it is that they're currently doing...but calling by another name.

    I absolutely LOATHE seeing the English language violated like that.

    No saints, it is true. The last Democrat versus Republican sex scandal at least pitted a Republican Governor with a drop dead beautiful woman from South America against a gay Democrat.

    Except the gay Democrat was porking a subordinate who was then trying to blackmail him. The Republican did not commit any criminal acts.
    See the difference?
    If there was ever a refutation of the OP this is as good as any.

    Speaking of the OP, what is a "king of hypothetical"??

    At the same time he was being investigated for some very questionable financial/real estate dealings, and another incident where he used Arkansas state troopers to pimp for him.

    Moral of the story...if you're already under scrutiny, don't take advantage of really young interns.

    We only need to look at the last eight years to understand what Republicans have done for, uh, I mean TO the country.

    It's the current crop of Republicans that want the President to fail, that want more wars. They cut taxes for the rich even while they were starting the last TWO wars and sent our kids off to war with old and rusty equipment letting the injured come back to moldy hospitals, even while they were figuring out ways to cut veterans benefits.

    There is no way you can compare Democrats to these loons. They never give up. They have an entire laundry list of things they want to do to damage this country.

    Cut education
    Replace science with mysticism
    More tax cuts for the rich
    No work on American infrastructure
    Torture
    More war

    They never stop.

    FYI: Using taxpayer money for an overseas love nest IS illegal.
