    No, I love it when Democrats keep electing morons. Makes it so easy to vote for ANYONE else.

    He really was the first model Manchurian candidate but they just couldn't get all the bugs worked out, what we have now is 2.0 or 3.0 I can't remember which. He's just damn lucky it's rehab and not the Denver Fed Pen with his dancing partner Roddy.

    He is a drug addict and known to be in the top 10 crookedest persons in Congress. Throw the bum out!

    Why should he step down? We have a guy in the White House who has admitted to using drugs and we re-elected a mayor in DC who was found guilty on drug charges. We need to either do (A) or (B)........we can't continue to put one person in jail and give someone else the keys to the White House.

    Just another drugged out loser who's unable to do his job that tax payers hired him to do. He's a waste of money and should be gone, he can turn into an attention whore like his father.

    yes he should lose his seat, and congress should be drug tested on a random daily basis. He is upset about them investigating in the Blago selling the senate seat. Get Real, go away Jessie you are done.

    He should be replaced, only when said and done he will be back at work like nothing happened. It’s the democrats why or doing things, it’s only bad if a republican does it.

    He just needs to suck it up and show up in Congress like the other duly elected druggies who are showing up.

    He should be treated for his illness, but I was very disappointed in hearing that he has a mistress and paraded her around Washington lavishing her with gifts. He needs to be removed from office. Our representatives need to be held to a higher standard. I am speaking about both sides of the aisle. They have some repubs that need to be removed also.

    The people that vote consistently are seniors or older citizens. I have to bug my children to vote and they are in their 30's. I dont think drug testing would knock too many out. I take prescription drugs so what if they said I couldnt vote because they detected drugs even though they are legal, So, I guess we would have to bring a doctors authorization for the drugs, too?

    If you have a prescription, you pass muster. I take several myself. Of course since the Congressmen have the best health care money can buy, there shouldn't be a problem having their scripts on file. As for old folks and drugs, I always assumed the reason that Pelosi and Reid are so screwed up was their intimate knowledge of drugs in the 60s.
  • carolynb Politic... 2012/07/12 20:24:47

    But I wouldnt have the prescription, just the drugs in my system. You should be concerned with not getting enough people out to vote, not if they are on drugs or not. I doubt if somebody on drugs, who would have voted for Romney, would turn around and vote for Obama. lol

    If you are serving in Congress, your prescriptions should be on record. That would be for safety as well as accountability. We don't have to make this very hard at all. People on drugs think they can fly ... I wouldn't trust anyone on drugs to do something stupid, or have someone HELP them do something stupid. LOLOL

    People on drugs who are high as kites arent going to go vote. They are looking for their next fix and they sure arent going to find it at the polls. When I see some of the responses on this site, I am more concerned with literacy and knowledge. People are very uninformed and just throw crazy stuff out there and hope we are going to believe it.

    I guess that might be part of the reason that young Mr. Jackson is on leave from his duties in Congress.

    It all sounds fishy to me. He is under investigation and then the big gossip about the girlfriend and now he is hospitalized. I believe all of our reps should be above reproach, held to a higher standard, and if they cant cut it, they need to step down. I am sick of hearing about reps who have affairs, hire whores, dont pay their child support, accuse other reps of being communist, and crazy stuff that has nothing to do with governing. They all need to go.

    Don't forget the drunks. I still can't get over that Ted got away with Mary Jo ... and then one of his nephews has been ticketed for drunk driving in DC. I think he was Robert's son and serving in Congress at the time. I don't know if he's even still in DC though. I haven't been keeping up. I got an e-mail a ways back that broke down the domestic violent, drinking, legal troubles, etc and the by-line was "do you think this is the NFL?" It turned out to be Congress.

    Haha. Ya, I feel we should do better from now on. They have to be vetted or scrutinized more closely. I just dont feel that someone who is having an affair and an addiction can be the best at his job.

    They didnt have to because they had a meeting the same day Obama was elected and their plan was to undermine everything the president has tried to do. They walked out alright from the very beginning of his inauguration. They walked out on us everyday citizens.
