A democrat wouldn't have quit over this.

Hell, a democrat could get drunk and kill a girl and still not be out of the job.

It's just a shame to see a guy piss away his successful career in such a way over drugs & alcohol.  He always acted as though he was above all that type of behavior. Who would have thought???

Coke-schmoke. Hell, that is a pittance compared to what most of the bozos in Congress gets away with daily/weekly/monthly, unchecked, not prosecuted for...indeed, held in high regard for.

"Public Servants my ass."

Republican caught breaking the law/abusing power = assumes responsibility + resignation + hatred from conservatives for betraying the country + banishment from the conservative movement

Democrat caught breaking the law/abusing power = blames someone/anything else + career enhancer + accolades from socialists on the lawbreaker's intellectual prowess and service to the common man + enshrinement within liberal movement

I was going to say "Rangel can blatantly cheat on his taxes and then has to resign over this?"



I hate being right

As Republicans, we are held to a higher standard.

It's usually a good thing, but you've got to walk to walk....

Me too. Why can't the corrupt politicians all resign then jump off the capital building?

I was very shocked this morning when watching CNN that they did not state he was a republican upon mentioning his possible resignation.

You sure?  He used to get drunk in a bar not to many years before he died and pinned some waitress against a pool table and started humping on her.  It's a wonder he never got arrested.

But Dems don't quit resign over scandal, crimes, and malfeasance.

Just another reason why, in the long term, we will lose and they will win.

They have no shame.
