    It's amazing to me how the news media, particularly, CNN get caught
    up in the B>S> of polictics, and not center on the main issues. What
    difference does it make if Speaker Peloski knew or didn't know something about torture 6 or 7 years ago, the issue is: Was torture
    authorized by the Bush Administration, not what Peloski knew. Just as
    you were hoodwinked in cheering on the Bush led Iraq War, you are getting up into the wrong points on issues. And to have the Minority Speaker on the "State of the Union" program, with the softballer, John
    King, lapping up every irrevelant point made the Minority Leader is typical of CNN. Maybe John was too busy admiring the Minority Leader's fake tan and getting tips on how to redo his.

    Who cares what the Newtster has to say him calling Pelosi a hypocrite is more laughable than him attacking Bill Clinton for lying about an affair with an intern since we now know Newti was also lying about an affair with an intern while he was prosecuting Bill Clinton.

    It seems that present & past politicians are all suffering from the same disease-amnesia with a little foot-in-mouth to round it out. Who knew what when what was or was not happening! You gotta wonder who's watching whom. What a mess!

    How does Newt feel about the fact that the CIA fired one of their own when he told them that he had received inside intelligence from France that Iraq had no wmds? I heard the agent on c-span. It doesn't seem like anyone either in the government or in the media has ever picked up on this.

    To start I am a democratic voter.
    I believe it does not matter if you are a Republican or Democrat, if one plays dirty politics and lies or cheats, that person should be removed from whatever office they hold. I think if a poll is taken you will find most Americans are sick and tired of this countries politicians taking advantage of the system for personal gain or "quid pro quo" type sceems. My heart weighs heavy over the turmoil our country faces and dirty politicians seem to be driving the U.S. into even darker "closed door" days.

    Thanks for letting me speak,
