The left immediately abandoned & shunned Weiner, Weinstein & Spacey.  O'Reilly is still welcome on Fox News, Roy Moore will get plenty of votes & Trump is in the White House.  1 in 9 girls experience sexual assault.  Now we can look at political affiliation to know who approves https://t.co/itPTxAqeWG

In Weinstein's case, only when it became known to the general public.   Then there's Ted Kennedy.

hey, I suspect that Roy Moore has a loooonng way to go to before he can match the accomplishments of "Progressive" Liberals!



Come on man, you're smarter than that. The only one of those that's not photoshopped is the Clinton one. The other three are medals given to Biden, Tom Hanks, and Bruce Springsteen.

Cosby did get the medal...from Bush W.

And Wiener wasn't really even shunned until the last possible moment - he had a revamped political career after his first transgression, his wife stuck with him and continued to be Clinton's right hand woman. It wasn't until very clear and direct evidence (texts, pictures, etc.) came out of him having inappropriate sexual relations with a little girl that people finally started to distance themselves from him. Moore is nowhere near that territory, at this point the allegation against him is nothing but a he said/she said situation. Further, rarely do people get thrown under the bus as quickly as Moore has been when there is no evidence of wrongdoing. People like McCain came out against him so quickly that their reactions are worthy of suspicion.

That's another problem with people using phones as their main source of internet surfing: crappy Photoshop looks fine on a phone.

Neither party is capable of winning this battle.  The commonality is people wielding power and that's what politics is all about.

@RadioFreeTom
The President is tweeting like a mean girl at a rogue nuclear state while we argue over whether a guy in Alabama who dated teens as a grown man should be a US senator.
We had a good run, America.

I have a rule that I suspect a lot of people do, but I'm blunt about it:  the candidates personal life is as relevant as he or she wants the government to be involved in ours.  So I've never had much use for Moore and considering the number and consistency of the claims, believe them.

Romney nailed one thing on the head:  due process applies to criminal charges, not electoral suitability.

Welcome to Alabamistan...

Roy Moore Is Exactly What the Republican Party Is All About - Wake up and smell the white supremacist theocracy.

If you have a college or university, are close to major urban center, or have a lot of natural amenities, you are OK.  But too many places have none of the above. They are at risk of economic obsolescence....

Interesting. In addition, areas with a higher percentage of college grads appreciate in real estate value at a much higher rate.
