    GOP SENATOR QUITS LEADERSHIP POST

    Yes once again we see the total hypocrisy of the "Family Values" Republicant Party. While running around hurting his wife & family while having wild sex with another woman is not a good thing... it gets even more sinister with this Republicant warrior!:eek:

    The woman he was laying the pipe to was an EMPLOYEE... humm.

    And the woman's HUSBAND was an employee as well... this is really looking sleazy.

    They both got big PROMOTIONS & PAY RAISES once the affair started... Oh no... not a screw and hush scheme!

    And the creme de la creme...

    Republicant Senator John Ensign is a member of the Christian ministry PROMISE KEEPERS and has campaigned cause pushed by the the GOP's "conservative religious base"... LOL... while seeking to raise his political profile for a possible PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN!!!:eek:


    I can't make this stuff up guys... they truly are some two faced sneaky little suckers!:rolleyes:

    It’s good that he had to step down from his leadership role, and hopefully the voters will not send him back to the senate..

    There should be an investigation about this pay raise stuff and any other thing that doesn’t pass the sniff test.

    I don’t think republicans ever claimed to be perfect, knowing what good family values are and doing them are two different things.

    What I find very sad is this, had this been a democrat you would be defending him to the hilt and when republicans wanted to investigate raises and stuff you would have called it a witch hunt.

    The rules should be the same on both sides, not just the side who admits there is a moral code.

    top gun..I'm glad you brought up that Ensign is a member of the keep women barefoot and pregnant fundie Christian group for men Promise Keepers. Looks like he violated at least 2 of the Seven Promises outlined at their website:

    A Promise Keeper is committed to practicing spiritual, moral, ethical and sexual purity.

    A Promise Keeper is committed to building strong marriages and families through love, protection and Biblical values.

    MSNBC > this wouldn't have had to come to the 'light of day' had it not been for the threats that this woman made about 'making some money'!!! And this wasn't the first affair that he's {John Ensign} had with a staffer/aide! Republican/Democrat...we hold all of our elected officials up to the same standard...just some or our fellow posters seem to 'swing that sword of justice' one way and one way only!!!

    But that comment/statement of Pandora's
    is so KNOCK ME OFF OF MY CHAIR LAUGHABLE!!!

    You pull the 'sword of morality' out on this topic about a this man yet you, just defamed/slandered David Letterman about his "knocked up a girl and I didn't know David was into PORN" on another tread...JEEZ LOUISE you are a riot!
    Do you know the definition of :HYPOCRITE - Pandora; looking good and wearing it really, really well!!!

    I saw that!!!!

    :D

    I was living in Louisville, CO (right outside Boulder) when these Dudes first-gathered. I thought it was some kind o' pedophile-org; a bunch o' older-guys & kids, parked all throughout (and, around) Boulder...heading West (towards Folsom Stadium, I found out).

    At least they've got their marketing figured-out!!

    :rolleyes:

    I agree with you that they should all be held to the same standard, but the thing that bothers me is that the religious right folks are the ones claiming to be God's people, they set themselves up as judge and jury on us, so when they sin it's all the more egregious for their self-righteous attacks on the rest of the people.

    Gay people can't marry, but this worthless scumbag could divorce and marry again with the blessings of the culture and the church. You are wrong to say that I would defend a Democrat who did this, if he was a Promise Keeper and a loud family values defender and lying hypocrite I'd excoriate him just like a Republican.

    See that's where you always go off the tracks with me pandora.

    While it's true for political reasons I wouldn't myself bring it up if this had been a Dem, I most certainly would have said the guy was completely wrong if and when it was brought up.

    The issue isn't right and wrong. We all know what right and wrong is. The issue is the complete and utter hypocrisy from the Conservatives on the Right.

    They constantly brow beat, and protest, and threaten, and call God into play to smear and humiliate... gays, people hooked on drugs, women who feel they need an abortion, Democats without enough "family values" or "patriotism" for them, people not Christian enough for them... on & on...

    But they seem to usually be the ones CONTINUALLY getting caught in some dirty airport restroom trolling for gay stall sex or in full command when 9-11 the worst terrorist attack ever on American soil happens.:rolleyes:

    If there's one bright note to this whole story at least this Republicant wasn't having his affair with the HUSBAND!:D (no offense to gays).

    Believe me if the Conservatives just got a little more honest, fair & realistic about the family values issue they'd quit getting jack hammered as much when they get caught.

    You are right. I am not sure if you realize it though, When a person in a church is caught doing something illegal or immoral, the church goes against them. If they get fired from their job that would be like anyone but in the more liberal world its live and let live. So the punishment is more or less if you do anything illegal, but in the religious right they hold way more grudges.

    There are examples like some of these mega preachers, there is some amount of brain washing going on here, and they are excused. But in general, a person is ruined if they are religious and is caught doing something immoral.

    Yeah, and that's exactly what Jesus told them not to do.

    Well it depends,


    He did say not to worry about the speck in your brother's eye until AFTER you took care of the plank in your own.


    but there was the time when he was at the well, he called the woman on her many sexual relationships, he did not say its ok, or live and let live, he told her to go and sin no more.

    You said they carry grudges, that implies judgment and a lack of forgiveness.

    I'm surprised to see you admit that 'for political reasons' you would not bring up such a scandal involving a Democrat... That's probably the only honest statement I've ever seen you make.

    You then go onto say that if it were a Dem, and it were brought up, you'd say the guy was WRONG. The fact that you were silent on Edwards cheating on his cancer ridden wife aside, your very next sentence is:

    Of course to Progs like you... Its not even a matter of right and wrong when a Dem is involved because Progs have no morality, no standards, no ethics, and by standing for nothing, you can't be called a hypocrit for violating things you don't stand for. By standing for nothing, you think you can stand in judgement over those who proudly declare they stand for something but fall short of perfection. By standing for nothing, you insist that those with standards have no right to be judgemental towards those with none, because you and your fellow Progs, who stand for nothing, will not denounce each other for failing to live up to a standard that no one has set or even attempts to live by.

    You and the other Progs think Americans are tired of Conservatives and tired of Republicans... Americans are tired of the political games Progs like you are so keen on playing. Americans are tired of Republicans denouncing Democrats while making themselves out to be angels and vice versa. Both parties have become corrupt, both exist for the aggrandisement of the party, not for the best interests of the country. Americans recognize that both parties have individuals that do not live up to the standards they live their own lives by and they know its high past time there be one standard by which both parties, and all Americans, are held to account.

    This Republican's political carreer is over, as it should be. John Edwards carreer has been quietly swept under the radar but its not over. The Dems will eventually drag him, and his $600 haircuts, back out on the campaign trail because they, like Edwards, have no standards.

    Progressives stand for human rights, and a kind of freedom, that you deny, GenSeneca. You value property rights more than people.
