How many major scandals has the GOP had in the past year?

I stopped counting at 250.


Barbara C -- Yes, God gave me a brain. A very strong, healthy, human brain. Too bad he gave you a sheep's brain. :-(

Update 2:

Just the "facts" (LOL) -- Aligrespeq listed them for me. Isn't that nice? We Dems do nice things for each other that doesn't involve bribery. Go figure. As for your list versus his, your list goes back -- WAY back -- where his list is far more current. Looks like the GOP has a way with accumulating scandals FAR more rapidly. Nice try at deflection, however. That's what you Repubs do best.

    A FEW? lol shut up. its more than a few and way more when the democrats had control of the house. A few is an understatement

    or maybe hes just a concerned citizen that sees that the excessive scandals are due to a corrupt government.

    heres a list go to this site and click on each and see how the republicans were responsible

    and this is just from under dubya. now we can go back in all of history if ya want. 250 would be too easy!

    Does it really matter? I'm a Republican, a woman, a single parent of a special needs child, and I'm proud.

    There are plenty of scandals on BOTH sides.

    Have any of you heard of the recent DEMOCRAT SEX SCANDAL...

    The Senate is scheduled to convene in a special session Nov. 27 to look into allegations that Sen. Dan Sutton, a Democrat from the eastern town of Flandreau, "sexually groped" an 18-year-old page in this year's legislative session.

    Also, might I remind you about Gerry Studds, from my great State of Massachusetts, a democrat that actually HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A 17 YEAR OLD PAGE in 1983. And you just had another democrat affair with a page exposed LAST WEEK!

    I needn't say anything about good ol' Ted Kennedy, a certain woman, and water...

    Most news (at least in my area) is biased. When Democrats do something wrong there's barely a murmer. When a Republican does something wrong, it's posted in BOLDFACE PRINT.

    The GOP is nothing BUT scandal.

    It's a criminal organization that has taken over the government, controls the press, and tries to rule the world with its heavy-handed tactics and bullying strategies.

    The GOP is inspired by the Nazis - no better example than that of Rush Limbaugh, the Republican Party's 'bag man' whose hatred, bigotry and lies influences millions of brainwashed ditto heads, just as Hitler's propagandists influenced millions of Germans to believe it was 'acceptable' to kill 6,000,000 Jews.

    You're right.. there's a lot.

    But if the democrat party doesn't get elected here... then that just makes them look worse for not being able to use their environmental advantage.

    Stakes are high.

    DId you hear the newest one from Illinois?

    Just last night the RNC PAID for prerecorded messages sent out at ELEVEN o'CLOCK at NIGHT calling all registered DEMOCRATS, saying they were their local Democratic Candidates, spreading lies and impersonating these Candidates. Only at the very end of the message was it said that the messages were paid for by the RNC.

    Much fewer than the Clinton administration had. That was the darkest time in American history and that is Clinton's legacy. He was born to win, but he played with sin, and it did him in!

    A few, just like the democrats. Noone is perfect. They both have issues. They both have good points. Open your mind and vote with it, not their minds telling you how to vote. Stop voting along party lines, God gave you a brain (I hope) use it!!
