Dems Betting on Foley?
Ever notice that Democrats are always pointing their fingers at others? Democrat's clearly have nothing to help America. All they have are accusations and mud to throw. No plans to win the war. No plan on how to deal with Iran and Nuclear terror. No economic plan, except to raise taxes as high as they can, as recently stated by senator Charles Rangel (D-NY).
Suddenly a hot new book comes out by Bob Woodward, admitted by the author to be timed for the elections, and this Foley thing comes blaring out of nowhere. Dems have been using this same script for 5 years, proving they have zero ideas and are stuck in the past.
So, what did Democrats know, and when did they know it? How long have democrats known about this thing with Foley? Were they keeping it for an October surprise since their leads in the polls shrunk to nothing?
Is it possible that dems were more in the loop on this than the GOP leaders? Were they hiding it while boys were being preyed upon?
Dems are telling us they're shocked, but are all too willing to give a pass for the same sexual behaviors committed by members of their own party.
Certainly Mark Foley deserves some punishment and it is good he's out of congress, having ducked into the rehab clinic. But isnt' it funny how democrats gave their president Clinton and his cigar a pass for molesting young women time after time, when everyone knew he was a rapist going back to Arkansas, after he lied under oath as president, and then to the entire nation about it on TV?
The hypocrisy of democrats never ceases to amaze. Democrats are unable to debate the Republicans on the real issues. They are on a their own "warpath" to build voter "hate" against the GOP and President Bush at all costs.
Democrat's have defended the same issue they're attacking with now.
Mr. Foley resigned within minutes of being told that ABC News had copies of his salacious e-mails and text messages indicates he at least felt shame for his actions. Can the same be said for Democrats?
• In 1983, then-Democratic Rep. Gerry Studds of Massachusetts was caught in a similar situation. In his case, Studds had sex with a male teenage page — something Foley hasn't been charged with.
Did Studds express contrition? Resign? Quite the contrary. He rejected Congress' censure of him and continued to represent his district until his retirement in 1996.
• In 1989, Rep. Barney Frank, also of Massachusetts, admitted he'd lived with Steve Gobie, a male prostitute who ran a gay sex-for-hire ring out of Frank's apartment. Frank, it was later discovered, used his position to fix 33 parking tickets for Gobie.
What happened to Frank? The House voted 408-18 to reprimand him — a slap on the wrist. Today he's an honored Democratic member of Congress, much in demand as a speaker and "conscience of the party."
• In 2001, President Clinton, who had his own intern problem, commuted the prison sentence of Illinois Rep. Mel Reynolds, who had sex with a 16-year-old campaign volunteer and pressured her to lie about it. (Reynolds also was convicted of campaign spending violations.) Jesse Jackson added Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll in Chicago.
A win in November for democrats will have them going back to the days of excusing corruption and lies in their own party, as democrats are far more guilty of unethical and unlawful conduct than Republican's, as evidenced through the 1990's.
Once again it's easy see this all backfiring on Democrats.
What if the inappropriate relationship were between a congressman and a 16-year-old female page? Would GOP leaders face the same outrage for missing the warning signs? What if we were judging their actions toward a congresswoman who asked for a picture of a 16-year-old female page? What if we were judging their actions toward a president having sex with an intern?
For GOP leaders to pay a heavy political price requires either more evidence that they really knew what Foley was doing or for Democrats to form an alliance, at some level, with people who find homosexuality outrageous no matter what the age. Yet democrats embrace homosexuality, voting to back gay marriage. How many gay liberals have had sex with pages? That is well worth investigating, especially if democrats don't shut their mouths quick!
How many homosexual democrats have in the past or are currently preying on young pages or interns either personally or on the internet? Investigations are surely underway.
Their last president was certainly a sexual predator who they still back to this day, and yet they have the gall to make these accusations for political gain. It's shamefull, really!
