Will we change those immigration laws? Who will pay how much in taxes, and for what? Who controls our health system? Those issues aren't party over country. They are the issues that determine what our country is.
    Democrats aren't tricking anybody (well, hardly anybody) into believing they all of a sudden care about sexual harassment after refusing for decades to call out their number one hero, Bill. After making Ted Kennedy "the lion of the Senate".
    They see another wedge issue with the accusations against Trump and now Moore. That is all.
    I would be glad to see both replaced in the next primary rounds with other conservatives with their views but without their baggage. But not at the expense of the Supreme Court and ...the country.
    If you're gonna get to a conservative judiciary and regressive tax cuts, ya can't let some jailbait and ***** grabbing get in the way.

    I used to think that idea a bit trite and simplistic, I don't anymore.

    So yeah, you're upset with this too.

    Because you know it's smart politics on the Democratic side.

    It's also the right thing to do. Is it for the wrong reasons? Sure, maybe. But it's the right thing.

    And God forbid the Dems do the right thing.

    yeah the right has never cared...thats the down fall of the left..they end up caving and think things will change. To the right getting their policy is more important than anything else..
    The beauty that is the ugliness of the right. " They demand accountability for anger and divisiveness, while holding themselves entirely unaccountable for their anger and divisiveness"

    Many GOP Members in Congress and Senate have requested that Moore step down.
    BUT you just ignore that group right cause you want to HANG MOORE on the GOP and claim Moral Superiority but yet we had the DNC and Democrats Hiding Conyers harrasment for years.
    And Democrats elected Bill Clinton. So please spare me the BS.

    Democrats have been and are no better than the GOP.
    Clinton was elected 25 odd years ago. Many Democrats weren't even of voting age back then.

    You people will never let go of the Clintons. Democrats would rather leave them behind.

    What does it say about Republicans that the Clintons define them more than anything else?

    I noticed in Franken's resignation speech he said that some of the accusations were flat out false and that much of the rest he didn't remember the same way. In other words, he is using the nuts and sluts defense but without staying.
    So what does that mean.."I am being attacked by a bunch of crazies who don't remember things right and a bunch of liars...but I am gong to concede my career anyway"?

    Really ? You really are amusing.
    You were defending Franken so was Pelosi for awhile and other Dems.

    I hate to be so cynical but there it is. Republicans care more being in power than in being in the right. It's the classic projectionist ******** they've been claiming about Democrats for years. But their record in the last year speaks for itself--they don't care about getting anything actually done for regular Americans and the one thing they did ooze through, the Senate tax scam, is a huge giveaway to the wealthy. Democrats are Charlie Brown and Republicans are Lucy with the football.

    Means he doesn't apologize nor does he admit to any of it. But since his seat will go to a Liberal that he is playing sacrifice for ONLY political Points for the Dems. He really wanted to play it all out.
    But the Dems want to claim they are for women again. LOL

    ********. The RNC just sent him a huge injection of cash for his campaign. The GOP won't do a ****ing thing about Moore or trump. but you know this.
