The story of how Tom Delay stole the U.S. Congress. It’s the story of one of the most blatant power grabs in American history, and how a District Attorney in Texas turned out to be the biggest threat to the national DeLay Machine.

This is nothing more than a smear campaign by the liberal media.  They are up to their old tricks and only showing one side to the story.  They would love everyone to believe that the Republican party is a corrupt party and all they want to do is take over congress for their own means.  Don't believe it people!!!!

 rolleyes

Since 2006, that wrinkle old bat Pelosi has been screaming  " Widespread Corruption " in the GOP ranks, most were lies just to gain seats. ( They succeeded  Sad )
Look at the Dems today, the GOP had corruption issues, but they pale in comparison to what the Dems are doing now and they are destroying this Nation, talk about " Power Grab ".

Tom Delay, is still innocent until proven guilty.

funny how after all these years, it's never been brought to trial.  the republicans had/have? a policy that when a member was under indictment, that member would resign.  it took 4 grand jury seatings for the prosecutor in TX to get the indictment, but he finally did.  after Delay resigned, the prosecutor pretty much lost interest in the case.  no agenda there!

as a person, he was not one of my favorites, but the reason the left went after him was that he was very effective in getting republican party agenda things done.

I'm sure there's a name for the tactic of 'party A' accusing the other guy 'party B' first (whether he did it or not) of doing something which 'A' - has done, is planning to do, or is currently doing -  to take the power of exposing 'A'  away from 'B'.
 Such as if something like Iran Contra never happened then something like funneling money into Congressional districts that don't even exist would be a really big deal (why isn't it a huge deal?)

look at the difference in treatment between Reid and Lott.  Trent wasn't even talking about race.  he was talking about the conservative views of Thurman.  Strom had long ago outgrown his southern separatist views, but was never forgiven.  contrast that to Bird and his lKKK membership. 

the difference is that republicans eat their own.  they have standards and they hold their members to them.  that does not mean that the party is better, cleaner, or less political.  it's just that you can't hold anyone to a standard you don't have, and the dems have  none.

Thats why I think the republican party needs to adopt a policy of not kicking them out until conviction and not before.  Also lets fight fire with fire and go balls to the wall and take them out.  I think that has already started with the undercover Acorn videos and I believe we will see more of it in the days ahead.

They tried to crucify Trent Lott about these kind of comments.

I think if the Republican party could find a viable African-American candidate then this would be an issue other than that it might not be.  Only time will tell if they can get some miles from it.

If a African-American runs in the Republican party they get called Uncle Toms.Clearly you can see what they tried to do to Clarence Thomas.

black conservatives don't exist.  conservative women don't exist.  when one is found, they must be quickly destroyed so that no one ever knows about them.

I hate to acknowledge the brilliance with which they've sewn up conservative people into a neat little bag and stuffed them/us into a corner; (I don't believe for a second that they did it alone.) but if the brilliance of it is not acknowledged - the truth of it cannot be faced, and countering it can never be accomplished.

i didn't take it as anything bad  grin

i have to admit that i am a bit discouraged.  "The Girls" had lunch the other day.  there were 8 of us.  varying levels of education and life experiences, but 5 run businesses, several with upper level educations, all well traveled, etc.  all but one, conservative.  somewhere in the conversation we got onto health care and someone mentioned Harry Reid.  two of my friends actually asked ...who is Harry Reid?

i know everyone is busy.  i know most don't spend the time on politics that i do.  even so, if they can not take the time to be a little informed, what hope is there?  how many more are there like these two?  if this is what happens with the intelligent folks, what about everyone else?
