House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R.-Ill.) is coming under fire from conservatives for his failing to take action against disgraced Rep. Mark Foley (R.-Fla.), who resigned last week for inappropriate communications with teenage pages.
“Speaker Hastert had knowledge of Congressman Foley’s inappropriate behavior and chose to protect a potential pedophile and powerful colleague over a congressional page,” said David Bossie, president of conservative advocacy group Citizens United.
I thought he should have been fired when he tried to protest the search and seizure of that Louisiana congressmen's office. He's an egotistical blowhard that thinks he's more equal than everyone else because he's a congresscritter. Hastert and people like him are part of the reason congress cannot be trusted to do anything more than wipe their own nose.
Fire his fat ass.
UPDATE: We all know the Dimocrats are having a field day with this. Of course, the fact that Foley is out of Congress hampers their efforts with it, but they're still going to try. So while we all admit that Foley should be strung up by his shriveled nutsack and beaten to death, if a Dimocrat should try to make a big deal of this in front of you, please remind them that the Republicans kick the paedophiles out of Congress. The Dimocrats protect their paedophiles and keep them in Congress, as proven by Gerry Studds and Barney Frank. So ask them which party they support. The party of punishing paedophiles, or the party of proudly having paedophiles represent them in congress?
The conservatives deal with their bad apples. We dealt with Trent Lott. We'll deal with Foley. It's part of being an adult and fixing problems. The Dimocrats refuse to deal with any problems they have. They deny the problem, blame someone else, and then pray that the whole mess just blows over so that they don't have to change anything, which is why the Dimocrats have a Grand Kleagle of the KKK and a drunken murdering lush as congresscritters.
