    Amen! Get rid of this SOB and the rest of the GOP and DEMS who knew about Foley's love of little boys. In fact, should the FBI charge Foley, charges for Hastert and the rest of these ol boys should be considered. Let the fat hypocrite and his buddies rot in a pen.

    Yep, and while were at it...Pelosi should resign for Kennedy Jr's ambien induced run in, how the hell didn't she know about this???? She and the democrats should be kicked out for Jefferson bribery scandal, how the hell didn't they know this was going on????
    The Democrats should be kicked out for allowing Marion Berry to run again after being convicted of a crime..... Teddy Kennedy should of been gone over how many yrs ago,over a controversy accident that is so disturbing(but he's not)........ now his son is taking up the headlines???.......

    Hell, as far as I'm concerned, all the freaking congress should GO.....:bang3:

    At least among the House, that isn't such a bad idea! Yes, the Dems and GOP are both coming for a reckoning here soon. Let's hope the GOP Cleans house faster and gets back on the ball.

    I think its pretty hysterical that Dems are screaming for these GOP people to resign. I guess since it was known he was gay the GOP should had started a witch hunt when they in fact knew little more than the fact he was gay.

    Why should leadership resign? Because they knew about the emails? There was nothing serious in the emails. Odd yes. They looked into it and thought it had been taken care of. Its the Instant messages that they didnt know about that had more serious things, although if you notice we haven't even really been told what exactly he said in the IMs.

    When the IMs were exposed, Folley resigned. The Republicans didnt circle the wagons to defend him. We still arent circling the wagons to defend him. And what exactly has Folley done? Had some questionable instant messages with minors. We dont know that he did anything. No one has come forward and made that claim. We dont know that he broke any law. That would depend on the state laws and how old the minors were. You know in some states you are old enough to consent at the age of 16.

    Seriously, we dont know squat about anything other than its clear the guy is sick and has admitted it by resigning. So why the heck should we go after Republican leadership who knew nothing, pursued what they did know, and concluded the problem had been resolved?

    This is ridiculous. There is no doubt the guy should have resigned, but lets find out what he actually did before we start we railroad him and demand the resignation of leadership for no reason other than the Democrats wanting a scandal.

    You don't think there was anything "serious" in him telling a 16 year old boy he hoped he made him horny and wanted to take his clothes off? Okie Dokie....

    Actually, the content has been all over the news.

    And blames it on "alcholism" which, as far as I know, doesn't make someone a pedophile... only pedophiles are pedophiles.... not drunks.

    Not quite true if Hastart knew 9 months ago, is it. And they can't very well do that with a midterm election coming up, can they?

    Questionable? Again.... see above.

    Yeah... we do.... he propositioned young boys.

    Yeah.... we do. And probably Foley's own law is what he'll be convicted under.... you know, the one that protects kids from sexual preditors.

    Like I said, it depends on the Federal Law governing sexual preditors.

    Yeah.... after he was outed.

    Well, if Hastart knew, and his own party is asking for his resignation.... then maybe they don't agree with you that the problem had been "resolved"... besides, they're desperate to hold on to the House and now they're gonna probably lose a seat they thought was a given.

    It's not the Dems who started calling for Hastart's ouster, it was Repubs. And I look forward to your same restraint if a Dem is ever found to be a pedophile. :cheers2:
