    Forced to disclose backstage political bargaining, President Barack Obama's embarrassed White House acknowledged on Friday that it enlisted Bill Clinton to try to ease Rep. Joe Sestak out of Pennsylvania's Senate primary with a job offer.
    isn't bribing, or attempting to bribe, an elected official a felony?
    Vote for freedom, not political parties.
    Politicians need to cut spending

    So much for "change", eh?

    This seems to be devolving into a sh*tty presidency overall.

    Ya think! It seemed that way to me a long, long time ago. A lot of rhetoric, a lot of spending and an economy that sucks as much as it did when he took office - 15 million people out of work and China, Brazil and the Emirate States are eating our lunch.

    And before someone puts in their "Majority rules" bs, yes, he got voted in. Doesn't mean people haven't changed their minds and that if they knew then what they know now, they would vote the same way. It also doesn't account for many other factors in someone getting elected. Getting elected does not always equate to holding the same beliefs as those who elect them.

    The answer is no, since it was not a paying job.

    Though I got to say, offering a guy who has a chance of unseating "your guy" a non paying advisory position on some un-named Presidential Commission does seem a bit of a stretch. I mean, is that the best they could come up with???

    Technically. influencing an election is not a crime. But come on two presidents trying to save a senator's position who they promised to save because he jumped ship really sucks!

    Gonorrhea Lectim

    Information about Gonorrhea Lectim

    The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim.

    It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.
    The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum.

    Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

    It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout.

    You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

    Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey, and apparently now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

    Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk
    you really care about.
