Guess who won't be coming to dinner.


I see the republi-clowns have their swag back. They basically told O to take his little kumbaya summit and shove it. We will meet with you on our time nigg...I mean Mr. President. We shellacked you, remember? Rather than sit down with O, their leaders met with those federalist society folks. How is that bi-partisan thing working out for ya? I say it's time to double down O, you can only play nice for so long. This is getting old. It seems like every few months the field has to tell you the same thing, but you won't learn. You still believe that these folks will play ball with your beige behind. News flash! It. Is. Never. Going. To. Happen.

"Thursday’s much-anticipated meeting until after Thanksgiving to accommodate their schedule, not his. The first post-election meeting between Obama and congressional leaders, billed by Obama as the fundamental first step in the post-election reconciliation process, will now take place Nov. 30 .."

Don't hold your breath for that November 30th meeting. Repubs are full of themselves right about now, they are not in a mood to sit down and talk. The leader of their own version of Der Angriff, all but called O a Socialist. And, these folks are so emboldened, one of their senators is holding up the START Treaty with the Russians to score cheap political points. Senator Kyl, Mr. Ahmadinejad thanks you. Dope!

But enough about the O haters; tonight I want to thank the folks over at WPHT here in my hometown for dumping Glenn Beckkk and the fat fat drug addict from their programing lineup. Philly has enough trash, we don't need these two adding to the problem. Now let's hope that other stations in A-merry-ca start wising up as well.

And finally, was it just me or was that display by Charlie Rangel today seem beyond pathetic?
And the way he dragged John Lewis out there to defend his actions. *shaking head*
Sorry Charlie, I agree with the ethics committee and their recommendation on this one. You deserved what you got.

Still, it was hard watching that republi-clown senator from Alabama (of all places) grand- standing (pun intended with that "grand" word) while poor Charlie begged for mercy. I agree with everything Steve Kornacki wrote in Salon.com:

"As noted above, by the time Bonner spoke, Rangel had already been found guilty and it was already clear what his punishment would -- and wouldn't -- be. So it has to be asked: Why was Bonner so intent on rubbing it in? Certainly, simple partisan politics -- highlighting the ethical lapses of a prominent member of the other party -- had something to do with it. But it's also worth considering how the spectacle of their congressman lashing out at Rangel -- who in some ways is the face of black urban politics in America -- is likely to play with Bonner's constituents back home.

This is where things get a little troubling, because Bonner's 1st District was ground zero for the South's race-based transformation from Democratic stronghold to Republican bastion. I wrote about this evolution -- which was largely set in motion by the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 -- earlier this week. The South had been a uniformly Democratic region since Reconstruction, but the GOP's decision to nominate Barry Goldwater, who had joined segregationist Southern Democrats in their futile effort to block the Civil Rights law, prompted mass defections to the GOP in the fall of '64. Even as Goldwater racked up just 38 percent of the national popular vote, he carried five Southern states -- some by absurd margins (87 percent in Mississippi).."
[Article]

See what you did, Charlie? You allowed Mr. Bonner to put you in your place, once again. He said he was born in Selma, and he was glad you and those other Northern Negroes came down and marched with Dr. King. Don't believe it. He has been waiting for this day for a very long time.

"Sadly, Madam Chairman,"...it is my unwavering view that the actions, decisions and behavior of our colleague from New York can no longer reflect either honor or integrity."

Oh just STFU!

Hey Field, here are my feelings on these three stories:

1. The GOP are snubbing Obama from their leadership meeting because they don't want to look like drooling fools again. The GOP are running scared because Obama but a verbal foot up their asses last year on national TV. I remember that meeting - Fox just stop airing it after a half hour. You may not like Obama's politics, but like Clinton - he's several times smarter than most of the ass hats on the other side. As the Daily Show said, trying to out-debate Obama is like fighting Aquaman in the water.

2. Rangel should have been ousted years ago. He got to power by throwing Adam Clayton Powell under the bus. He's been a slick talking, corrupt politician for years - and its come back to bite him. But I do agree, it was tacky for some closet Klansmen like Bonner to admonish Rangel - but he opened the door for that by being a straight up crook.

3. For all the 'Obama isn't fighting hard enough' folks on the left - this is called a "teachable moment". The President is starting to renew Nuclear disarmament treaties, and the GOP is playing politics because they don't want Obama to outshine Palin (or whoever) for 2012.

OK, I'm done. Going home.

Intersting take on things LA. Once again I have to agree. Semms Rangle wanted to be ACP Jr. and it looks like he's getting his wish. There is so much similarity between the two besides both being Alphas and ending their careers on a sour note, we are usually better at getting away with stuff but that's a discussion for another time.
Two years is plenty of time for GOP antics to bite them in the asses. They will send Mikey Mike Steele out to pasture because they have their new negroes but at least one of them is insane and will cause so much more heartburn than Steely Mike ever did. "Now Cleetus tell me again why we elected these two nigg......again". Ha, I love irony because conservatives do not understand it.

Play nice? Obama and the democrat congress did nothing but stiff Republicans from the start. Republicans were allowed zero input on legislation and were completely blown off by Obama on policy discussions. The one time he made a show of bipartisanship was when he held the phony Healthcare Summit, and got his ass absolutely handed to him by Paul Ryan. It was obvious Obama knew far less about the issue, but that didn't stop him from ignoring Republican ideas and ramming through his healtchcare takeover through backdoor legislative tricks.

We all know how that worked out for the democrats. Now that they've lost congress, they're suddenly interested in the spirit of bipartisanship.

Too late.

It's on, bitches.

After Katrina & other hurricanes made tens of thousands of Black people in New Orleans & Mobile homeless, Bonner & Shelby steered "hurricane recovery" funds to their friends to build townhouses for rich White people across the street from the University of Alabama's Bryant-Denny football stadium in TusKKKaloosa, over 200 miles from the Gulf Coast.

Field,

In terms of Rangel, my question about most of the people in congress. Why does a Multi- Millionaire, spend millions of dollars for a job that pays a 6 figure salary?

Also, LA is right, last year in Baltimore, Obama answered all of the wingnuts talking points and tore them up. The Republicans and Foxnews tried to spin the conference which was funny because Obama showed them up big time. Now it's time for Obama to do it again and quit playing the Rodney King, Can we all get along? crap.

How many times do we have to tell these Anon lurkers to detach their Limbaugh download antenna. Obama compromised from the start - HCRA was based on ideas from Bob Dole and Mitt Romney. Cap and Trade was Pappy Bush's idea. He reached out and compromised just to get Olympia Snowe to vote on a bill. We didn't close Gitmo because the GOP raised a storm. Hell Obama fired to qualified public workers because Fox News raised a stink.

If anything Obama hasn't shown that he's spent 20 years in the Chi.

For Republicans - Compromise doesn't mean "let's work together" it means "Do what I tell you to do and pretend we had a meeting of the minds".

And Paul Ryan? Seriously dude? That disrespectful little punk got one good sound bite -- and then got smacked around by Obama a few weeks later. Oh, and BTW, health care reform passed, despite GOP howling. I say Ryan lost.

In boxing terms, its like saying "Margarito really rallied against Pacquiao" but failing to realize Pac-Man beat his ass by a 10 point spread.

Well duh. Anyone who has to spend signifigant time at work or school with "them" knows that either they keep their nose clean or make damn sure they don't get caught. Then again, black America like every other American deserves a politician that's not corrupt and serving the national's interest.

As for Obama, well, he did apologize to the cop that one time. Of course he doesn't get it. I just want to see someone in office that A) can stand up to people, not just their countrymen, but coroporations and hostile countries AND B) Understands the counstitution and it's amendments.

Not at all, Obama is not even in Ryan's intellectual weight class. Seriously, the President was totally shown up by Ryan and the other Republicans who had done their homework. Obama is not used to beng challenged, and his intellectual laziness was shown up badly on that occasion.

Detroit was a decision...not the invisible hand of Adam Smith. Doubt me? Glance over to Marxist Germany...or Marxist France...or Marxist Scandanavia. See, silly trolls, some of us have, like, actually read Karl Marx..in the original language.

If Paul Ryan is your intellectual savior then you have a long road ahead of you. His "plan" is of course to gut social services and lower taxes, shocking huh? As far as compromise why would he compromise with an insane political party? I read the state party platforms of the GOP and it is downright scary. Foreign relations based on the bible? Don't believe me look up the Texas GOP platform. I saw the same in a few other states but don't remember offhand. I'm sorry but you don't compromise with insane, any party that seriously considers Palin as a viable candidate is certifiable. This is one dumb country.

It's "bear" the fact, genius.

And no, the fact that he's half white doesn't enter in to making the call that the guy is an intellectual lightweight. Bush was all white, and he was even dumber. However, Bush knew his limitations; Obama is apparently clueless.

Also, of course Obama got "HCRA" passed; he had huge majorities in both houses of congress; he could have passed anything. His overreach and abuse of the moment was his downfall.

The first and the last "black" president, and he wasn' even black. Damn.

The START treaty is considered a foreign policy feather in Obama's cap, and of course, the GOP doesn't want Obama to be a success in any way. Hanging failure around this man's neck is the modus operandi of conservatives until Jan 11, 2013.

Not ratifying the START treaty is going to do more than leave a bad impression on Russia/U.S. relations -- it's gonna set up a scenario where some enterprising terrorist entity is allowed to get his hands on one of these nuclear devices and pulls off (or attempt to pull off) a major terrorist act. And it will be used as a pretext for creating new organisations to "deal with" the issue and enact more draconian laws that further constrict the liberty of American citizens. The moneymakers will be able to profit from the increase in the price of commodities due to this "scare", and of course, this piss-covered flag will be draped over Obama, his failure to own and embrace.

Reminds me of what happened to a certain someone about 31 years ago.

Rangel, altho he's done some good for us, has always been a corrupt and hypocritical politician. he's no different than most white dems, and less worse than most white republiKKKlowns. i've never liked him and if he's tossed or quits i won't cry.

yes, it's pretty clear at this point that my brother the O is out of his league. he's starting to remind me of the time i was with a group of really powerful and important white people (i was the ornament, if you get my drift) and suddenly the conversation turned to something of which i had no part, and never would. i hope it's finally dawning on him: dood, you're being used. by racists that hate you. they'll pay you well when your time is up, and your kids will have a really nice life. but they will never, ever, not ever in the history of all time and forever, let you truly be in The Club. that's for da white folks and that won't ever change. here's a clue for you, my brother: it's not really a club you want to be part of, and even better? it's not even the most important club in the world anymore.

Bonner with that horrified look of outrage, glaring at Rangel ... it's too easy, but I've got to say it; if I ever truly saw and heard the pot calling the kettle black, there it was. On all sorts of levels.

I've kind of thought about Chicago Dyke's posit as well.

Here you have a guy who is a Chicago machine politician, and knowing that he couldn't have possibly gotten any sort of consideration without a whole lot of deals being struck no matter what. Even white candidates have the devil's name prominently displayed on their dance card, no matter what they say.

He gets in, and the administration looks strangely familiar, although certain nuances have changed ... I mean, even the secratary of defense, "Heckuva Job, Gatesy" Robert Gates is still in place running the thing into the ground, "ensuring continuity".

A re-read of the "Pentagon Papers", memories of almsot fifty years ago, make me wonder if history is repeating itself to a very accurate nicety.

LAC, exactly how far would Obama have to go before you would concede that some people on the Left might be right to oppose him on some key issues? Not only does he lack the guts to fight on what's really important, he disagrees with civil libertarians (right or left). He's a slightly left of center statist, who is seeking more power for the state.


" The Obama administration is intensifying a push to expand government wiretapping of online communications, including emails, Facebook postings and internet phone calls. The administration wants Congress to require immediate compliance with wiretap orders seeking government monitoring of encrypted messages sent over the internet. The New York Times reports FBI Director Robert Mueller met with top executives at several major Silicon Valley firms, including Google and Facebook, earlier this week. The White House proposals include a requirement that any services based overseas be routed communications through a U.S. server where they could be wiretapped."


Obama wants more power to read your email

Shady_Grady said...

Rangel should have retired a long time ago. Just because you're Black doesn't mean you can't be corrupt. He left himself open to all the grandstanding by those on the Right.

I think we ought to have term limits for Congress. Get some new blood in there and shake people free of the idea that they are bigger than the institution.

let's spend a minute on the Phila news: a lowlife scum pled guilty to raping and murdering a waitress on her way home from work. He wanted to steal her bicycle, so he just naturally rapes and murders her, too.

Quiz: can anybody guess the race of the human scum that did this? C'mon, it's easy. You know the answer.

That's why they call it "TNB". Stereotypes exist because they are true.

Here's an unneeded clue: his name is Donte.

Another clue: you people would call him "brutha". When he goes to prison, you people will protest that he's in there because he's the victim of "racism".

For an easy bonus: if asked, would he prefer to be called a field negro or a house negro?

“I felt he could have at least given me a straightforward answer, even ‘We have real doubts about the costs of the damage,’” Gabriel Bordenave, who asked Obama the Katrina question Thursday, told me. “He was trying to avoid the issue.”
You know things are bad when Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, one of the president's more reliable defenders, calls him "disingenuous," as Robinson did this morning on MSNBC, reacting to an answer Obama gave at Thursday's televised town meeting in New Orleans. (It's less surprising that Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman, would deride Obama's performance as "pathetic.")

what has the BP owned hobama done for black fishermen in the gulf???????

Obama has been engaged in killing the planet, in concert with his corporate co-conspirators. He did nothing more than cosmetic changes at the federal Minerals Management Service, which Obama finally admitted, at last week’s press conference, “had been plagued by corruption for years" and had a "scandalously close relationship" with Big Oil.

The unbroken chain of “corruption” at the agency in both Bush and Obama administrations is one small expression of the continuity of actual rule of the country by sometimes feuding cousins in Big Oil and Wall Street and the Military Industrial Complex – the permanent government. Obama is “engaged” as their servant, like his predecessors in the Oval Office.

The corporate cousins have raised the stakes of the game. It’s either them or Earth itself. When history passes its verdict on the current era, she will not assign much import to the advent of the First Black President of the United States. Rather, history will mark 2010 as the year a servile political operative in the White House exposed the seabed to deep defilement by the oil colossus, from which the world never fully recovered

So it was strange and disheartening that Obama would wait nine months to make his first visit to New Orleans as president. It was stunning that he would spend only a few hours on the ground and that he wouldn't set foot in Mississippi or Alabama at all. But worst of all was the way he seemed to dismiss the idea that his administration could and should be doing much more.

I know that local officials say the Obama administration is more responsive and more effective than the Bush administration, but that's not saying much. What says more is that New Orleans still doesn't have an operational full-service hospital. And that an adequate flood barrier is still not in place.

"I wish I could just write a check," Obama said. If that was his message, he should have stayed home. We now know that our government can make hundreds of billions of dollars available to irresponsible Wall Street institutions within a matter of days, if necessary. We can open up the floodgates of credit to too-big-to-fail banks at the stroke of a pen. But when it comes to New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, well, these things take time.

I doubt these are the priorities Obama wants to be remembered for.

Which is why Obama cannot be trusted with our security: He views such treaties only as ways to pad his image, not as ways to make America safer. He'll sell out our security just so he can say he signed a treaty with the Russians.


"Not ratifying the START treaty is going to do more than leave a bad impression on Russia/U.S. relations -- it's gonna set up a scenario where some enterprising terrorist entity is allowed to get his hands on one of these nuclear devices and pulls off (or attempt to pull off) a major terrorist act."

more from hobama the repub and the rebel john c:

WASHINGTON (RNS) A day after ordering a host of changes to the White House's faith-based office, President Obama is facing mounting criticism for keeping in place Bush-era policies that allow faith-based social service providers to hire and fire based on religion.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers on Thursday (Nov. 18) voiced frustration that he has yet to hear administration plans to change those policies. He and other lawmakers were disappointed that no White House officials attended a subcommittee hearing on the faith-based office.

Good morning Shady -

Yes, the wiretapping disturbs as does the new airline stuff (though as I stated before, not nearly to the Black helicopter level some folks here are at.) I also think that health care reform and financial reform were extremely watered down and that the administration should strong arm some of these neo-con Dems into overturning DADT. And Obama should told his generals to either draft a complete, 2-year withdrawal plan or find another job.

So yes, there are legitimate policy differences we can take up with the President. I never said he was perfect or even all that liberal in comparison to us.

But there's a huge difference between "I don't agree with the President on XYZ" and "The President didn't do XYZ, so he's worse than Bush." And it certainly no where near as asinine as saying "The President didn't do XYZ and is just like Bush, so I'll stay home on election day - because it doesn't matter who wins."

One is a logical legitimate statement of grievance. The other two are typical liberal defeatist attitudes that do nothing to advance our concerns and has no resemblance to reality.

You push for more progressive candidates and give sympathetic politicians cover to advance your goals. You do not stay home and turn over the legislature to partisan hacks like McConnell, Canto and Boehner or completely loons like Bachman.

One thing I've learned in working in business and politics is that sometimes go enough is as good as your going to get. Demand absolutely perfection at all times will slow you down in the long run.

I hope that clarifies for your Shady where I stand.

Have a good weekend all.

the deal u deny and refuse to see was a DONE deal long ago.

jfk was executed because he refused to be a bankster drone like hobama!

ie

if "republicans & democrats" are simply distinctions without differences, voting for either is voting for the same bs indeed....so?

if repubs = dems light and democrats = repubs light despite the fact that there is no such things as "evil/wrong light", sane people SHOULD choose not to rely on/waste voting for either...so????

But, you say, we have elected a candidate of change. To which I respond: Do these words of President Obama sound like change?

"A culture of irresponsibility took root, from Wall Street to Washington to Main Street."
There it is. Right there. We are Main Street. We must, according to our president, share the blame. He went on to say: "And a regulatory regime basically crafted in the wake of a 20th-century economic crisis -- the Great Depression -- was overwhelmed by the speed, scope and sophistication of a 21st-century global economy."

This is nonsense.

The reason Wall Street was able to game the system the way it did -- knowing that they would become rich at the expense of the American people (oh, yes, they most certainly knew that) -- was because the financial elite had bribed our legislators to roll back the protections enacted after the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

Instead, Obama wants to increase the oversight power of the Federal Reserve. Never mind that it already had significant oversight power before our most recent economic meltdown, yet failed to take action. Never mind that the Fed is not a government agency but a cartel of private bankers that cannot be held accountable by Washington. Whatever the Fed does with these supposed new oversight powers will be behind closed doors.

Obama's failure to act sends one message loud and clear: He cannot stand up to the powerful Wall Street interests that supplied the bulk of his campaign money for the 2008 election. Nor, for that matter, can Congress, for much the same reason

Need more? Here's what Rockefeller said in 1994 at a U.N. dinner: "We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order." They're gaming us. Our country has been stolen from us.

The problem with bankers is longstanding. Here's what one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, had to say about them:


"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation, and then by deflation, the banks and the corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their father's conquered."


The real war is not between the left and the right. It is between the average American and the ruling class. If we come together on this single issue, everything else will resolve itself. It's time we took back our government from those who would make us their slaves.

alicia banks said...

Whatever date is chosen, or however many, I'll throw in my support. It will be a slow build, but we can win this battle if we remain focused on the prize: meaningful campaign finance reform and serious restrictions on lobbying activity. It's time to take back our government. Let the average person have an equal voice with the wealthy.

For now, remember: The corporations do not control our government; they are our government.

alicia: "we can win this battle if we remain focused on the prize: meaningful campaign finance reform and serious restrictions on lobbying activity. It's time to take back our government. Let the average person have an equal voice with the wealthy"

Everyone has one vote, and everyone has the right to try to convince others to vote their way.

Shouldn't everyone, even the wealthy, be permitted to try to influence votes as much as they want?

"Campaign finance reform" is in this sense a restriction of free speech.

Billionaire George Soros uses his fortune in all sorts of ways to influence public policy, almost all of which I disagree with. But I recognize his right to spend his money as he pleases.

People wih money are more vested in the economy, and money talks. The average person does not have an equal voice with the wealthy. This may not be "fair", but is it wrong?

Some people are activists, some people dominate blog posts (ahem). Does their participation in the polictical process give them undue influence over the "average" person? should they be limited on what they can post? (Don't all answer at once!).

As long as we promote transperency rules, at least we know whose interstes are behind political "speech".

The thrill is gone for many voters under age 30 who turned out in 2008 to vote for President Barack Obama by a 2-1 nationwide margin. That support represented the biggest schism between young and older voters in a presidential election since exit polling began in 1972, according to the Pew Research Center in Washington.

This year, fewer than three in 10 voters under age 30 say they will definitely cast ballots in the Nov. 2 congressional elections, down from 36 percent 11 months ago, according to a poll by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics released Oct. 21.

alicia banks said...

Voters under 30, who overwhelmingly voted for President Obama two years ago, not only showed up in much lower numbers Tuesday but were also less willing than in the last election to strongly support Democrats.

Exit polls showed voters ages 18 to 29 made up 11 percent of the electorate, a sharp drop from the 18 percent in 2008 and the lowest percentage in two decades. And those voters, who backed Obama by 34 points in 2008, backed congressional Democrats in 2010 by only 16 points.

No Boaz, the START treaty isn't about reducing our nuclear arsenal so terrorists won't get them it's about having our inspectors over there so we can keep count of THEIR nukes. Russia is not as good at keeping tabs on their nukes so a rouge scientist or "capitalist" could sell one of theirs. There is a method to this madness and the treaty is but one of the mechanisms to keep nukes out of the hands of terrorists but Republicans want to make this a game. It's a win win for them, if a terrorist gets hold of a loose nuke and successfully detonates it then Obama failed to protect us, if they don't then "see we didn't need a silly treaty afterall" that is until president palin takes office but then again she can see Russia from her house so she don't need no treaty. Two more years of obstruction. Not pretty but expected.

LAC I understand/respect where you're coming from but my concern is that by constantly splitting the difference liberals and/or civil libertarians are constantly ceding ground on some very important issues.

I would never advise anyone not to vote but if the only choice is between war and more war, what sort of choice is that? Something has gone very wrong in the American electorate. Obama is more intelligent and more reasonable than the previous occupant of the White House. But he is just as dangerous if not more so when it comes to war and civil liberties. The anti-war movement (at least the leftist portion of it) muted itself after the election and what happened? More war in Pakistan and Yemen, an ongoing occupation in Iraq and now a "Well we didn't really mean withdrawal-withdrawal in Afghanistan you dumb lefties must have misheard."

This is what happens when the President has no effective opposition from his left. You don't have to buy in to all of the personal invective or racist nonsense hurled at him to be very angry/upset with some of the things he's done.

If this sort of thing (below link) were happening under Bush, people would very quickly pin the responsibility on him.

LACoincidental said...

Shady - I agree on both points.

Its ridiculous to search a obviously disabled man for bombs in his wheelchair. But its equally as foolish to stop Indian Sihks in the airport because Americans can't tell the difference.

The problem is a) we only care about civil liberties as a nation when its starts to annoy white people and b) we willfully give away our freedoms for security because our leaders have scared us to death.

And as you pointed out, Obama has no credible liberal opposition, and to be honest neither did Bush. And if we were really honest - most people forgot about the war once the economy tanked.

And as I said, there's plenty of criticism with Obama. But a lot of it is hyerbolic nonsense that has no real bearing on reality.

For example - liberals were howling that Obama was dragging his feet on the Black Farmer reparations bill on Capitol Hill. Fine and dandy - but that bill has been languishing since the Clinton years. You can't hold Obama personally responsible for a political football punted around since I was in high school. You want to hold Obama responsible for stuff? - great. You better hold the other 536 legislators just as responsible.

You're mad about healthcare with no public option. Go bitch out the blue dogs who refused to back anything remotely resembling the PO. Obama could have fought harder - but you can't as if politics happen in a bubble.


And Congress, not the President, funds the military. Want to end the war - stop funding the military. But that something Congress can do.

My problem isn't criticizing Obama - my problem is that people still have this fallen Messiah issue going on. So no matter what's going on and how the politics look, we're still going to bitch because Obama doesn't walk on water.

The truth be told, so called Progressives have been collective sitting on their asses for years - too smart and pure to get into politics. Now you've got spineless moderates (obama), corporate stooges (Boehner) and a gaggle of wingnut crazies (Tea Party). But that's another story.

I could go on, but I've got a plane to catch.

The one good thing about the hypocritical looters taking over the House is that they now have partial ownership of the hole they dug themselves by shipping all those jobs overseas.

Yes many Democrats are corrupt like Rangel, but most Republicans are 10x more corrupt. You see, we have a choice between the regular corrupt and the morbidly corrupt to the point of being downright dangerous to life on earth. That's the beauty of freedom and democracy in this country. Which we recently exported to Iraq and Afghanistan.
