Its our choice in November

Democrats have a full platter of issues to present to the voters this year. Perhaps this is the richest year in a long, long time for democratic candidates to expose the greed, graft and insensitivity of the the republican office seekers.
The AP had a great article written by David Espo that uncovered the real money behind the alleged Chamber of Commerce ad for Jim Talent that praised his vote for the Medicare Prescription Act.
The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America paid nearly $10 million to the Chamber to produce this ad.
In other words, Jim Talent's vote for the Medicare Prescription Act is sealed and delivered by the industry who wrote this bill.
Who suffered because of this cozy relationship? Our senior Americans suffered as well as every taxpayer in the United States.
If Missouri wants this type of greed and graft to continue...we must re-elect Jim Talent. But if not, we have the moral and the ethical responsibility to vote Claire McCaskill to the Senate.
Almost every race this year gives this same type of choice.
Continue the course of corruption or choose the course of right.
What will it be Missouri?
How will you vote in November?
More of this same corruption or a government interested in doing the right thing for the right reason?

There are times when history and patriotism demand that individual personal and political differences be put aside for the good of the nation. No one at the Democaratic Unity event had a personal interest in Claire being elected. No one there expects any jobs or patronage from a US Senator. Why, then, are so diverse a group willing to put aside their own discord to present a united front?

The answer is simple patriotism. Everyone in that room understands that the Bush/Chaney Kleptocracy is doing serious harm to the country we love. Not just a disasterous war of choice, or just ruinous economic policies. Not just destruction of our good name throughout the world. Not just a serious attack on the individual rights and division of powers of our Constitution. All of the above, and more.

This really is bigger than any of us or our egos. This is a fight for the future and the soul of the Republic. Elections have onsequences. This election may well decide what kind of country our children and grandchildren will inherit.

DeAnn, you misspelled it! It is not T-H-E H-U-G; it is simply T-H-U-G!!!!!!!

"If Missouri wants this type of greed and graft to continue...we must re-elect Jim Talent. But if not, we have the moral and the ethical responsibility to vote Claire McCaskill to the Senate."

Yeah, work the moral angle! That worked so WELL for you in 2004!!!

Phil, NOTHING is bigger than your ego!

Michelle, If you had heard the words come out of her mouth that I have heard, you would say katie was ANYTHING but classy!

Hey 851. THUG is when Republican Legislators make Animal Noises in celebration of Medical Care cuts to the elderly. THUG is when Republican House Legislators threaten organizations in order to force an endorsement.

THUG isn't a word that describes Democrats. In this state and in Washington D.C., it's a word that describes the Republican Party.

If it weren't then tell me constituents are yet to see the word "Republican" on Republican Candidates political literature?

Instead they use the word "Independent" on EVERY SINGLE PIECE.

Have a look at the Republican Candidates literature from around the county. You won't see "Republican" on any piece.

Democrats are scared to death of the government enforcing a police state upon us which the Republicans say is not a bad idea. One way to keep people from voting against you. Throw them in a goulag. The Republicans are scared shitless of the "terrorist. I wonder who the actor for thier recent Bin Ladin movie. He looks better now than ever. Little was said about the small funeral in a little town for a man named Bin Ladin some time back. I believe he is dead. They shut down the unit that was put together and assigned to find him. Now he is just good propaganda for this administration to scares us so the can claim they need more power tools (fewer civil liberties) to fight the enemy. Now they have the president of Iran. Who's next. These people are evil and I question the sanity of the people who continue to vote for them. They can't see it coming. They are blinded by fear and hate. Benjamin Franklin said "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to eat. Liberty is a well armed sheep prepared to challenge the vote."

JJ wants a recount? Whenever the vote total for both candidates has a difference of 1% or less there is an automatic recount. This occurred and JJ lost again. You'd think twice would be enough.

I live in northeast and I think John Burnett would get the message that his days are numbered . He is a sitting Legislator who had to have a recount to stay in office. And I am sure the third time will be a charm.

White House Aide to Rove Resigns
By DEB RIECHMANN
ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON (AP) - A key aide to presidential political strategist Karl Rove resigned Friday in the wake of a congressional report that listed hundreds of contacts between disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and the White House.

Susan Ralston, special assistant to President Bush, submitted a resignation letter to him less than five weeks before congressional elections in which corruption and scandal are emerging as key issues for voters.

"She did not want to be a distraction to the White House at such an important time and so we have accepted her resignation," White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino said.

"We support her decision and consider the matter closed," Perino said.

Critics have pointed to Ralston as evidence that Rove - and thus Bush - are possibly closer to Abramoff than the White House has acknowledged. Ralston was Abramoff's administrative assistant at his lobbying firm and, after Bush took office, assumed the same post with Rove.

The House Government Reform Committee last week issued a report saying that based on documents supplied by Abramoff's former lobbying firm, he had 485 lobbying contacts with White House officials over three years, including 10 with Rove. At the time, the White House said it was unclear whether all the listed contacts were legitimate because they were based on sometimes-sketchy information provided by Abramoff himself.
