    Did Jay Leno write this monolog?

    To "Esquire" more like future Democrat Presidential appointee. Had he gone through with it, he would be on par with Obama's appointee Cass Sunstein.

    Bobby Rush was a Black Panther during the Days of Rage in the late 1960s. He advocated cop killing and blowing up ROTC buildings. Now he's a "respected" Chicago politician (There's an oxymoron for you) and member of congress. He served six months in jail on a weapons charge.
    He was in deep with Bill Ayers.
    Somehow I don't think he's tied to Limbaugh. Maybe Chris Matthews.
    As for higher standards, we've not yet elected to congress a man in a mental ward, under indictment, who didn't campaign. That's tough to top.

    Maybe his next step is congress. The most recent list I could find (2010) showed that there were currently 30 members of congress that are convicted felons.

    To "one old man" Maybe this kid should talk to the Kennedy's. Remember Ted Kennedy, he killed a girl and got off free.

    But BO, your hopes for higher standards among Utah voters have already been dashed. After all, look who they have voted into our Congressional and state offices. And most of them voted for Mitt.

    Who is Bobby Rush? Limbaugh's brother?

    Perhaps he can get some advice from Bobby Rush.
    Then again, this isn't Chicago. I would hope that Utah voters have higher standards.

    Perhaps he can run for Senate after he loses in Roy. If he has the magic letter R after his name on the ballot, he'd win for sure.

    Probably do a much better job than either of our current Senators . . . . .

    "Transparency, ladies and gentlemen, is key." And then he slips away refusing to answer reporters' questions. You can't make this stuff up.

    Cody Judy who threatened Howard W Hunter did the same thing I think ran for some office or tried too. Won't go far I think.

    I can hardly wait to see what he promises folks so as to determine the number of votes he will garner.

    Well, it's true, you may have a bit of an unique experience that may help your perspective as a politician... but boy, politicians need experience - and experienced leaders, not a bunch of other teen friends to be your committee.

    Maybe you're rehabilitated, ok fine. But PROVE IT. If you truly want to be mayor someday, first get involved in politics, in some small non elected position, where you get to learn and observe (although I'm not sure there's a lot I want emulated from current politicians...) and see if politics is what you really wanna do. SHOW people you have what it takes for politics. Then run for, say, city council or the school board. Work your way up.

    And transparency? *coff coff* First step for transparency, answer questions that people ask you!! Until you do, transparency is simply a trendy "buzz word" you figure will get you elected, but means nothing.

    Odd. Very odd.

    A lot of disturbed persons go on to be politicians.
