    There is misconduct everywhere, Government, private, State, Local . I am saying it is right, but people are in fact human. Look into fraud in Social Security or medicare or welfare instead of sex scandels. Be useful.

    The media will continue to focus on the Secret Service debacle, as long as it diverts attention away from the endless score of Obama's debacles. After all, there's a limit to how many Obama photo ops, award ceremonies, T.V. appearances, sporting events, dinners, and trips they can report on ... in place of his absence of actual governing !!!

        this guy is home playing on his mom's lap top, smoking a joint. Soon his mom will be at their apartment door and he will have to pull up his sweat pants, shut down the lap top, and swallow the joint. Mom's home!

      Howard,its nothing compared to the mess your buds Bush and Reagan left us in,both of them,both losers.Pres.Obama has done more accidently for this country than both of them,throw in Bush Sr,just for laughs.You and the other republican vacuum babies can't think outside the bubble,its just assenine how you hypocrites can point fingers and rant when all hell was breaking loose back in the Bush and Reagan years and said absolutely nothing.Trickle down your neck economics,that's as smart as his sidekick the monkey and he acted smarter too.Ask Bush when he can leave the country guys,he can't and Pres.Obamas been protecting your brainchild for years to come.Human rights violations and more are on his arrest warrent,compliments of the Geneva Convention and Switzerland for assorted crimes against humanity,plain and simple.Your presidents start wars for money not patriotism,first time in war no bid contracts are given ,especially to vice presidents ,that's nice ha,take away our personal liberties,act as thou they're dictators,with political corruption everywhere ,destroying economies sighting free market bullshit and then as historically before ,walk away leaving a complete economic catastrophe acting like nothing happened on their watch.That's treason in my book,plain and simple and Romney will give us more of the same and you cowards I'm sure know it...

    I can not imagine either of the Bushes or Regan forcing the USMC to end a Marines 9 year career because he spoke against the President... but then we know obama does not have an American cell in his brain...he is not one of us. I hope soon to be President Romney reverses this horrible deed. Oh, I'm a Vietnam veteran combat USMC Sgt...so I know the rules....this Marine said he would not obey an unlawful order from obama...neither would I.

      Gung hoe,maybe your one of the few that wasn't affected by race,but a lot of guys were.And yes I'm a proud Union member and paid my dues for over 30 years to retire.I didn't go in the military,didn't have to.There wasn't any republicans started wars going on when I graduated from high school.I also grew up with racism all around me but have a lot of great friends,black,white,latino and all the rest to grow old with happily.It's your republican racism shit that gripes my ass,I was happy voting for a black man,so was my family,friends and union buddies.You guys started this crap when McCONNELL stood up sayin his only job was making sure Obama was a one term president,that's racism and treason in my book and if you were in the military like ya said supposidly,then he's due respect ,your commander in chief,no matter if he's black or any color ,right!!Romney also didn't let his kids serve in the military,like himself,so be proud of your republican leper,nobody wants his vp job,15 and counting.Hey,give those other hypocrites like you,Jerry and Howard a big hi from me,they know me by now,they'd better...
