    Breitbart is an azzhole, and anyone who follows his half truths is the same...

    Shows a tendency for a lazy, half witted brain.. a brain that searches for very simple answers to complex problems and then they say I understand, but in reality they want you to understand what they want you to understand... there is no room for thought or reflection...

    He may be but even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Did you listen to the audio? Regardless of which party it is, it is wrong to "shake down" someone for a contribution by mentioning (repeatedly)that you are chairman of the subcommittee with which this individual has business dealings..
    Leaving a vmail of this shows questionable judgment to say the least.....
    This really isn't very complicated;
    1) Congressperson needs money
    2) Congressperson calls individuals to coerce money.......
    3) money is donated to Congressperson
    4) Repeat .......
    This goes on on BOTH sides of the aisle but usually not so blatantly....

    Normally, "listening to the audio" would be proof positive of someone's words and intentions.

    However, with Breitbarth's reputation for "adjusting" both audio and video, I'd hold out for a bit more proof before taking anything he posts as gospel truth.

    Attack the bearer of the criminal news not the criminal, beautiful. I can't imagine the indignation if the congress critter were a pubibie.


    Both side do this the gov should spend less to cut down the amount of corruption.


    This illustrates what a joke so called 'campaign finance reform' is.

    I can't imagine that you'd be very indignant if it were a pubibie, either.

    Finally we agree on something!!!

    Maybe, just maybe, with the memory of Shirley Sherrod still fresh in our memories, we should wait and see how it plays out before shouting "off with her head?"

    Democrats aren't capable of those dastardly acts, something has to be wrong here, I bet those f-cking Palin's had something to do with "framing" this poor little women.

    Of course it's "clear where I stand," 13. What's clearer than "I think we should wait?"

    Good that you managed to pick up on that, though. It must have required some serious reading comprehension.

    Yea the right pretty much beat that down, for sure they do not want it.

    See Whitman in California... 119 Million spent of her own money, that is one dudette who is in touch with her constituency...

    Have you been watching the millionaires Fiorina and Boxer.. two multimillionaires fighting it out..

    The reality is that this is a rich person's game, that is where the power is...

    Congress is made up of a lot of millionaires, and Breitbart made millions spreading half truths and hyperbole...
