    Well, how about we TIE THEIR HANDS!?!?!?!?!?!!

    On March 16, when confronted by members of the Jefferson Area Tea Party, Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va., made a startling confession:

    “If there’s one thing I’ve learned up here (in Washington) and I didn’t really need to come up here to learn it, is the only way to get Congress to balance the budget is to give them no choice, and the only way to keep them out of the cookie jar is to give them no choice, which is why – whether it’s balanced budget acts or pay as you go legislation or any of that – is the only thing. If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing”

    Incumbents running for reelection are expected to posture, inflate their accomplishments and embellish the truth. But the Yale-educated Democrat’s attempt to placate angry Tea Partiers by telling them that “If you don’t tie our hands, we will keep stealing” is shockingly, even brutally honest.

    Perriello unwittingly gives voters in the Fifth District the most compelling reason to throw him – and the rest of his fellow Democrats, who have been in charge of Congress since 2006 – out of office in November....

    This is one of the more candid and honest (in its bizarroworld way) examples of why Limited Government is preferable to Big Government. The moral hazard of having easy access to Other People's Money is corruption. Impure and unseemly corruption.

    At least someone let it slip past their tongue... a fact most conservatives speak out against.. and (IMHO) a fact that most libbies also know, but are just to pig headed to admit

    Run along, imposter.

    You couldn't make a relevant comment even if you were dipped in a vat of liquid rationality.

    I know very well. Leave it to a moron like you to try to make it a party issue instead of understanding that it is a philosophical one.

    How long has the Rangel ethics investigation lasted?

    Instead of prosecuting after the fact - it would be better to tighten the rules so that budgets are required before money can be spent, and those budgets must be balanced. For starters.

    Duke Cunningham ?

    This was a TRULY AMERICAN TRAGEDY....... and it is only fitting and PREDICTABLE that one of the CONSISTENT SNIPERS among the contemptible Obamarrhoidal LIEberrhoid Lezbos, B(ad) O(dour) ...Duh...C'ya would air this TRAGEDY to suit her POLITICAL PURPOSES.

    Yes, Duke Cunningham, misappropriated funds. Actually a paltry amount of $2.4 million COMPARED TO THE THEFT OF SUMS TEN TIMES THAT BY DEM PARTY ARTISTES SUCH AS THE CHAIRMEN AND CEO'S OF FANNIE & FREDDIE: RAINES and JOHNSON who stole in the realm of TENS OF MILLIONS....and then.....appointed to the HIGHEST FINANCIAL and POLITICAL POSITIONS IN THE OBAMI SALAAMI ADM......to IMMEDIATELY EVAPORATE into the MURKY DEPTHS of DEM PARTY'S SPECIAL FINANCIAL HEAVEN.

    Yes, Duke Cunningham made a TERRIBLE MISTAKE....and he was duly disgraced for it. And, rightfully so.

    But, it must be remembered that he is ONE OF THE GREAT MILITARY HEROES OF ALL TIME !!!!

    DUKE CUNNINGHAM, during the Nam War, defending his country was a FIGHTER ACE who risked his life for us, coming up with one of the highest enemy planes shot down. AND FOR THIS HE SHOULD BE HONOURED.....

    UNLIKE THE DEM CONGRESSIONAL TURDS WHICH ARE LEGION.....LIKE RANGEL, MAXINE WATERS, REFRIGERATOR JEFFERSON, SCUMBAG ALCEE HASTINGS (who STILL is in office) , THE DEM PARTY'S CHAMPION OF MORALITY & OFT REELECTED ICON: THE FUCKING CHAPPAQUIDICK MURDERER (MAY HE ROT IN HELL), etc., etc., etc !!!!
