COMMENTARY: Democrats Show Hypocrisy

Posted: July 29, 2013 at 4 a.m.

It is stunning to watch politicians who by day make a living talking about the rights and dignity of women, then by night condone creepy sexual predators of their own party.

PUBLIC VIEWPOINT: GOP Has Surprising History

Many people believe the GOP has in recent years been subverted, placing only candidates on the ballot that are, in fact, Republicans in name only. Read »

None of this insanity is surprising. The Democratic Party is led by a gaggle of progressive liberals suffering from an obscene clinical mental disorder. Insanity begets insane things.

The Republican Party isn't really much better. It's leadership is completely out of touch with everyday Americans. Their penchant for "politik-ing" instead of fostering true reforms for the benefit of of the People they represent proves it.

It is time for a complete change of leadership in both parties and a new direction for politics across the board. Both dominate political parties have failed us. The harm they have done since George Walker Bush was elected is difficult to measure. The time for true Americans to pay attention and do something about it is now.

This is a stupid article. There are plenty of Republicans who have been involved in sex scandals. Not that this makes it any better, but it is silly to make it a partisan issue.
Republicans--
Mark Sanford, former Gov. of NC, who was "walking the Appalachian Trail" with his Argentine mistress.

Notice how many times the shill Fredericks mentioned
"resigned."
How many of the Republican party resigned when they were caught doing the naughty on the side?
One Congressman Foley from Florida who was caught flirting and coming on to House pages is all I can recall.

Certainly not Newt, Gov Sanford, Sen Craig who was nailed for trolling public restrooms.

So the kettle is calling the pot black.

J: "The Republican Party isn't really much better.">>

The old tit-for-tat game isn't very useful, but as long as we're playing... if Coralie and Cdawg's examples were appetizers, I've always thought the 60 examples of leading republican politician pedophiles was hard to beat:

Let's see the list of 60 Demo child humpers and then we can see which group "isn't really much better."

And republicans really like the gay sex scandals for some reason:

"Methods: the number of sex scandals for politicians (both state/local and national) for the past 10 years was tallied from the list of political scandals provided on Wikipedia. Each scandal was scored as to if it involved a Republican or Democrat, if it involved a gay or straight affair, and whether or not the victim/participant was underage.

Results: Republicans were involved in 61% of sex scandals in the past 10 years, whereas Democrats were involved in just 39%. Moreover, 34% of the total number of scandals were gay scandals (i.e, involving an ostensibly straight politician and a same-sex partner), with Republicans accounting for 78.5% of all gay scandals. Republicans were also involved in 66% of the underage scandals.

Conclusion: If a sex scandal is going on in Washington, there is a 2 in 3 chance it will involve a Republican. And If it’s a gay scandal, it’s almost a sure bet that it involves a Republican."

I see people comparing two failed political parties like one failing worse than the other somehow makes the other look better or vindicates failure like some kind of sick victory. Wake up folks. Both parties behave essentailly the same way. They merely disagree on exactly how they are going to go about robbing and controling us. In the end the result is the same.

They lie, cheat, steal, rob and seek to control every aspect of our lives for their benefit. Whether they are republicans or democrats doesn't matter any more than if someone shoots you and murders your family it doesn't matter who they are. The result for you is the same. The political pursuation of the executioner is not important.

I stand by my thinking that we need to get rid of the parties as permanent fixtures. There is nothing wrong with citizens gathering together for a common purpose, unless you are forming an employee union and that is wrong for some reason no one can quite explain. All of these people exploit power they achieve through their association with a powerful political party. If they did any of this stuff and had to stand only in front of the people that voted them into office, I am not sure most would be where they are today.

Both dominate political parties, the Republicans and Democrats differ significantly from political movements. A "movement", whether the "Tea Party" of the "99 Percent" are concerned with heartfelt issues import to it's supporters. On the other hand political parties and politicians are concerned only with power and greed.
