    Amazing how our po0litical leaders pick, and choose who to condemn. Example:

    * Martha Steward went to jail for lying, but nothing happened to Bill Clinton for doing the same thing with Monica.

    * Romney condemned for being wealthy, but nothing said of Nancy Pelosi.

    I'm not justifying Jesse Jackson Jr, but a sixteen trillion dollar debt is a sign of major corruption.

    worf lives in Texas, where the federal money flows in more readily than it goes out, so it must be...THEFT! I call on New York, New Jersey and every other net taxpaying state to demand their money back from Texas. As for Obama, if anything he's doing in public is illegal, Fox News and certain members of the House of Representatives would be screaming about it every hour.

    Well the apple does not fall far from the tree. Never been much impressed with his dad either. A MLK want a be.

    Have to give him credit to admitting it and taking responsibility.

    Mark B--"Delay played a LOT of golf all over the world. How is he doing?----Isn't this excusing Obama? Delay played a Lot of golf! Why did you bring that0 up?

    Explain how taking hundreds of millions for personal vacations, and golf isn't theft! What entitles Obama to take our hard earned tax money for his own pleasure?

    Spin that.

    worf, what are the first words of my previous post: "I wouldn't defend anyone guilty...". They should be right on your computer. But I'm not off blaming Obama for something done by Jesse Jackson, Jr. What's more, I don't see anything illegal about anything vacations or golf trips. My point, which I am surprised you don't seem to see, was that illegal activities do not belong to just ONE party. Fair enough?

    @Mark B--why do people give a free pass to Obama because of what someone else did.

    I should get an all expense paid vacation because Barry did.--Good way to justify theft.

    Jesse Jackson Jr should be excused because someone else did the same thing. Not fair?

    Theft doesn't matter.

    I wouldn't defend anyone guilty of ripping off the public, but implying that they are all Democrats is ridiculous. Do the names Ton Delay, Duke Cunningham, Jack Abramof, Ralph Reed, Newt Gingrich and a handful of GOP bigshots under investigation in Utah sound familiar? And remember, worf, Delay played a LOT of golf all over the world. How is he doing?

    These people come out of Illinois/Chicago politics, what do we expect. The reputation of a Chicago politician in Illinois itself is that they are all corrupt to the core. Look at the man we elected to run our country!!! How is he doing?

    What's the big deal?

    There's a political leader who takes hundreds of millions for personal vacations, and golf games.

    Doesn't matter.

    Which political party does Jackson belong to? When he voted, did he tend to vote conservative or liberal? Just wondering.

    Interesting that the Jackson's home has been added as one of the sites to visit on the Chicago Gangsters Tour.
