I find it strange at this time. That the pres. GWB, would state( A plane was supposed to fly into the largist building in California?)With out the Mayor or congress people being informed about it?

Abramoff did more than block minimum wage for Mariannesworkers. there were mandatory illegal abortion and prostitution,due to low wages. In a 1998 speech while visiting, with A bramoff, Tom Delay praised the companies there as being prime examples of Republican Party values. These values are low wages, mandatory illegal abortions , and prostitution.

TPM needs no one to make apologies for it but when you spoke of "quid pro quo" and Reid, he did say something at the end about the unsaid speqaks volumes, referring to just what you suggested. I never thought that TPM was at all missing a beat. When is the left side of the aisle going to stop allowing the right side of the aisle define the lefts position on everything? It is that alone that is most upsetting. To that end, we also have to have someone begin to put together something like the Republicans did in 1994. Four to six ideas that can begin to give the Democrats a platform that is simple to understand and repeated fifty times a day in any venue that will get the platform out there. Then the MSM will at least have to begin commenting on it and getting the Democrats to comment. I can see where the country is just waiting for a solid group of ideas to begin to be discussed and we can stop being only "against" Bush and the right. Tpm Friedman East Hampton,NY

Yes, just saw a line on CourtTV, saying"Reports show that Reid had many contacts with disgraced lobbyist Abramoff." My god, the republicans must be dancing in the street over this. You see, you see, we aren't the only ones that are tainted. Oh please. I defy anyone to find one, just one, honest republican. I also saw you on C-Span. Good job, I am very surprised that you did not burst out laughing at the caller who "claimed" to have flown with bush, and that he fulfilled his duties just like a good National Guard should. What an outright LIE.

Wouldn't blowing open a cockpit door with a shoe bomb, supposedly so that a terrorist could get access to the plane's controls, also not blow the plane out of the sky? Sounds like another tall tail Bush pulled out his ear to divert attention. What was it that old Abe said about foolin' the people?

watched you on tv and find your blog interesting. i especially liked your comment about the 2 realities. i thought maybe one was insane because i grew up during cold war and remember the drills and the terror that raised. i was a military brat and we were in puerto rico during cuban crises. 11 year olds dont pay much attention to events but when over nite the lawns disappear and tanks and tents are every where ,well that is scary. dad was in communications and had military escort home to shower /change clothes then go back to work.it makes you very aware of what fear really is. i dont mean to denigrate 9/11 but it surely must be put into some perspective concerning the dangers. nukes pointing everywhere that destroy half the polulation in just a few days is surely what is terror and we survived that. freedom is what america is famous for,without the freedoms then we have handed the terrorists a victory. br3n

As the Reid/Abramoff story shows, meeting with and accepting money from a lobbiest is not in itself wrong or criminal. The purpose of a lobby is to represent the interests of a group and has often been beneficial, such as when AARP lobbies for the interests of seniors. As a private citizen, I contribute money to campaigns of those individuals or organizations which align with my interests. Lobbies do the same. Receiving money from a lobby or having meetings with a lobbiest does not necessarily indicate corruption.

I discovered you today on C-span today, great job . I too am glad you got Feingolds name out there , he is my Senator and I think he does a great job of representing me, and defending civil rights. He is great on the environment also. Anyways, just wanted to say nice job today. . ...looks like Weapons of Mass Death ..might be the new catch phrase. ...and now Brownie is on, I hope he spills all the beans.
