There is no one whose past can't be scrutinized for grave errors and misjudgments when they were younger. We know people can evolve and change their values. Obama changed his mind about gay marriage as did I - can we not move on from past errors and become better people? And if not better, at least do the right thing?

Of course we can, says this optimist.

Like with the President or Kavanaugh or Gillespie??

Great, so I’m happy to see that you feel everyone should be given a second chance as you said for their errors, misjudgments, everyone deserves the clear presumption of innocence before we pass judgement regardless of race, color or party affiliation.

The difference is the legality of their actions...lol

In your perfect world, you would free rapists and pardon thieves...wonderful.

An elected official should always be held to higher standards than others.

These officials were elected when their past actions were not public knowledge, its fair that they resign.

If they have changed their attitudes they can always try to run again.

Anyone who has evidence of sexual assault against them, has boasted of committing such acts in public has no place in politics.

Whether these people are Democrats or Republicans should not matter.

No, the difference is, the Dems got caught once again in their web and identity politics and ethics value rule book and are now stuck in corner.

You had on the republican side three men that were accused and now we know falsely of a crime they never committed. Now on the Democrats side, we have evidence of a crime an admission of of two other crimes and disputed sexual assault crime by a WOMAN who is also a Democrat and the Dems are siding with this policitican and saying, we should step back and let’s not rush to judgement, because he’s black and younger the other 2 politicians are White, older men, they can be thrown under the bus.

In your perfect world, you would free rapists and pardon thieves...wonderful.

In your world you would do the exact same, not listen to the accuser, allow doctors to indiscriminately decide whether a newborn baby has the right to live or die.

What has this got to do with racist politicians, though?

Herring and Northam need to the right thing and step down.

By Democrats standards, all three need to resign.

Maybe they’ve instead decided to go the Republican route and defend them until the end of all time.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

They need to go. We don’t need losers like that in our party. Send them to the GOP.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

They do. But why do you never say the same about Republican bigots?

Why do you make such statements and never reply?

What are you frightened of?

Crazy: There is no one whose past can't be scrutinized for grave errors and misjudgments when they were younger. We know people can evolve and change their values.

Agree. I gave this comment a thumbs-up. You should really take your comment to heart, Crazy.

All 3 of them are still in office. Why?

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Love how “when they were younger” has now been extended to mid and late 20s but only for liberals.

How old was Trump when he supposedly denied housing to people?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

They do. But why do you never say the same about Republican bigots?

Why do you make such statements and never reply?

What are you frightened of?

Sorry, I was working.

And Why should I be afraid? Lol! If they did something as bad as these 3 men, I would.

They need to go. We don’t need losers like that in our party. Send them to the GOP.

Even on their absolute worst day, they didn’t have a Grand Wizard in the Senate or formed the Klan to begin with, made racist social economics that literally destroyed and entire race or had 3 solid racists in one State at the same time come out. Naw, these people are right at home in the party where they should be.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Nah, everyone know the GOP is home to the racists. Go to any white supremacists website and see who they support. Or watch Tucker Carlson.

What I said before is how each party handles it. Sessions got sanctioned because of racist language in his past and Trump made him AG. Trump himself is racist proven by his discrimination against blacks in housing. Steve King literally defended white supremacy and got a slam on the wrist.

We do things differently. I don't want that scum in our party and they should be thrown out.

Ok, then answer me one question and I’ll give you an apology. Which Black City under the Democrat governance is a safe city? Tell me one or even 2 cities where Democrat poles have made Black neighborhoods on par with Counties like Orange or Inland Empire? Take your time?

You don’t feel anything that Hillary worshipped Sen. Byrd who loosely used the N-word while being interviewed by the late Tony Snow? You didn’t find that disturbing? He didn’t even bat an eyelash when he said that.

Trump himself is racist proven by his discrimination against blacks in housing. Steve King literally defended white supremacy and got a slam on the wrist.

Ahhh, that old debunked myth. Now with King, I won’t defend what he said, he was definitely out of line, but what about the 3 governors in VA? Doesn’t that bother you that these men and their outrageous conduct has no place anywhere in politics. So you’re with me these me men need all go, right?

We do things differently. I don't want that scum in our party and they should be thrown out.

I agree, so then how will Democrats make amends for their disastrous policies that destroyed and entire community?

Bass: Ok, then answer me one question and I’ll give you an apology. Which Black City under the Democrat governance is a safe city?

Ummm...what? You keep asking these questions as if they have some meaning. Can you give me the source of the article you read that gave you this point to repeat? It might help me better understand.

I won’t defend what he said, he was definitely out of line, but what about the 3 governors in VA?

My guess is that the three people in VA will be gone soon. My other prediction is that King will be re-elected to the Seante by the GOP and will get his committee back. How about you?

So you’re with me these me men need all go, right?

Have my statements saying they have to go not sunk in yet? Read above. I haven’t heard your opinion if someone supporting white supremacists should stay. Obviously the GOP party leaders think he should stay, what about you?

How will Democrats make amends for their disastrous policies that destroyed and entire community?

Ummm...by electing a racist for President? Is that the right answer?

(Donald Trump, Roy Moore and Brett Kavanaugh's sexual improprieties conveniently ignored...)

In that case, will you condemn Norment?
