If Glenn Beck is right that Corruption is the biggest problem?

Why not get rid of those Republican congressmen bought & paid for by lobbyists like Joe Wilson?

    If you've actually been listening today, you'll have quickly noticed that Beck is advocating cleaning up corruption in both parties. And you would really have to be hiding your head in the sand if you can't acknowledged that it is pervasive in Washington... on both sides of the political aisle.

    I don't even know what corruption accusations are out there against Joe Wilson... but I have to think it would be small potatoes compared to a GREAT many others there. You'll have to enlighten me on his "corruption"... and if all you have is the "You lie" comment the other day, don't even bother. Dems have done much worse than that on the Congressional floor over the last few years..

    They ALL need to be weeded out (which will cover MOST congressmen). Hopefully, both Americans on the right AND the left will work to vote the corruption out in their parties!

    Corruption lies on both sides and if you are not willing to do the same with the Dems and dear Obama, then your point is useless. Beck clearly states that both parties are corrupt...he has said so for years, even when he was on CNN. See...

    If you are against lobbyists, you are against lobbyists, no matter what party. You don't pick and choose based on who you want to marginalize today.

    Try fighting for yourself for once--don't do the dirty work of the politicians FOR them. Don't they live handsomely enough off of what we pay them already?

    Hmmm...

    You seem to have forgotten to mention tax cheat Charlie Rangell, "Cold Cash" Jefferson, Fannie/Freddie supporter, and big donation receiver Barney Frank, "Friend of Angelo", Chris Dodd, Tim Geithner, Rod Blagoyavich..

    Beck is right - there is no shortage of corruption and special interests, and unless they are removed, the country is doomed...

    Beck is only told to acknowledge Democratic corruption. Fox News will never made an issue of Republican corruption, as evident from their non coverage of the KBR and Blackwater scandals in Iraq.

    You're right. It's just that the Obama administration is a larger target than representatives and senators that don't have high positions. Like reid, pelosi, and Bohner are easier targets than say John Barrasso. If your saying who?, then you get my point.

    Because Wilson's corruption when compared to Obama & crew is negligible.

    yes Corruption is a problem.. and Republicans like Mitch McConnell get MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of dollars from health insurance companies, so of course they are going to be against healthcare reform... it's just sad that people don't see how the lobbyists are changing the debate with fear and lies.
