    Now why is it that NEM has posted in every other thread, but not this one?

    Truth a bit hard to digest, NEM?

    You have an unhealthy obsession with NEM. Chill.

    Now as far as the claims against Reid, yeah, they're a problem, but unfortunately there are all sorts of equivalent problems, including a land deal involving Hastert. Sad to say, the Congress creates rules for themselves, and then ignores them. The Dems point out Repug infractions and the Repugs point out Dem infractions. It's all politics.

    Sorry, it's not that easy.

    Foley has sexy IM's with a page and the media and Democrats blow it up as Watergate 2 (What did Hastert know and when did he know it).

    Reid violates law after law and the broadcast & print mainstream media lets it go virtually unreported?

    Reid is bellowing about morals and Bush and the war as if he's a fricking saint. His house is the dirtiest (and dingiest) and he's not being held to account for it.

    Where's NEM's outrage? Everything else pisses him off, provided it's a Republican in the crosshairs. Put a Democrat there and he's as silent as can be.

    For someone who has been everywhere, you tend to be a bit single minded here, if you look at previous threads on this matter there was pretty much consensus that this should be investigated and if credible, he should be impacted by the swift sword of justice. To focus on one poster on this board, is an injustice to those of us who post here on a frequent basis.

    To look at that one poster's posting history and frequency and NOT wonder why he hasn't posted in a thread with this as the subject when he posts in every thread he can expressing outrage at Republicans is to illustrate his hypocrisy.

    But anyone reading his posts for 5 minutes could have predicted that.

    It's all politics. If you'd be honest with yourself, you'd recognize the Lewinsky scandal was also all politics.

    The Democrats have never denied being hypocrites, but are trying to point out Republican hypocrisy. The holier-than-though crowd ain't so holy:

    That's sort of how it works for all of us, but we have different ways to express our views. Your options with NEM are to (1) ignore his posts or (2) challenge the substance of his post, but personal attacks are forbidden in this forum.

    I'm at a loss regarding the Reid situation. He owned some land and he owned an LLC. He was supposed to put the land into the LLC but left it in his own name instead and we're supposed to be up in arms over this? I guess if you're going to spend two years investigating an oral sex charge this is worth a few days; but please.

    Reid didn't (in violation of Senate rules) report his involvemtn in the LLC. Eh did the LLC on a handshake with NO wiritten documentation (RIGHTTTT>>). HE then lobbied to have Federal Powerline right of ways changed which freed up 25% of the land for development vastly increasing the value of the land (a gross conflict of interest which was hidden by Reid not reporting his involvement in the LLC). OH BTW whoever had the right of way for the powerlines placed on their property insetead of Reid's LLC got screwed for Reid's benefit.

    BTW his partner is suspected of having ties to organized crime. NBD if your a dem out to get rid of the 'culture of corruption' I guess.

    Just a guess, if the demmies get control of the Senate, this will push Reid out and allow Hillary to become Majority leader, I wouldn't be shicked if this were leaked by the Clinton machine for her benefit> This is of course speculation on my part.
