    After taking his money and turning a blind eye to his horrible treatment of women, going back decades, the democrat party has shown it does not care about anything but power. For them to claim any moral high ground after these revelations is an absolute joke.

    They all knew.

    Yes, they are the party of hypocrites.

    Saw an op-ed by a NY Times writer (the same guy that did a scathing obit of Hugh Hefner), and he said that liberals would have been well served by adopting some conservative morals. One: Liberals laughed when it came out that Mike Pence does not take meeting alone or have dinner alone with a woman other than his wife. Liberals would do well to adopt that policy. Two: Consent is not enough for a policy, he argued, saying cheating on your wife makes you more likely to harrass your subordinates.

    Third: You can’t ignore moral character when you make decisions about whom to vote for or work with or support. This was something conservatives used to argue in the Clinton years; under Trump, many have conveniently forgotten it. But it remains true. Yes, sometimes you have to work with a bad person or vote for a bad person or hold a fundraiser with a bad person for the greater good. But not nearly as often as you think.
    'Forgive me, I'm a liberal' won't help this old goat now

    He is just another Democrat who enjoys abusing women. He joins the likes of Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd, purveyors of the famous "Senate Sandwich" game; along with Billy Bob Clinton, Gary Condit, and a host of other progressive abusers. How Democrat women could continue supporting these sexual miscreants is beyond my comprehension.

    I think they should let Bill Clinton be the point man for women's issues within the Democratic party.

    She was safe. She is too ugly for the pervert to hit on.

    (1) You condemn sexual assault, yet you feel okay with trashing a woman because of your estimation of her appearance?
    (2) Remember that sexual assault is about power, not about lust, and victimizing the daughter of a President would be a power trip.
    (3) She is not an ugly woman, but that's really beside the point.

    I found his comment unnecessary and distasteful but trying to tie him to someone who commits sexual assault is crossing a line.

    You assume you know more than you do. With some men, sexual assault is about pure lust. With some, pure power. With the vast majority, some of both.I worked quite a few rapes in my day. 99% of the women raped looked good. You give the average pervert a chance to rape a beauty queen or Honey BooBoo's mama, who will they choose? The only women Obama could beat in a beauty contest would be whoopi Goldberg and Aunt Esther. Her Mama would lose to Esther.

    The human race is a fallen race. That God has decided to extend grace and mercy to us shows us His amazing love. We should be sickened by sin, all sin, particularly our own. Political leanings should have nothing to do with it. More and more I am moving toward the opinion of David Lipscomb in his treatise "On Civil Government" that Christians should avoid the corruption of politics altogether. Just haven't made a final decision yet to cut the cord with something I have been following since 1964. Old habits die hard.

    Where did that come from? :confused:

    I believe that remark should have been beneath you. I don't believe she's fair game until she shows she deserves it... like someone named Chelsea.

    She's ugly. Facts be facts. Pretty women stand a much higher chance of being hit on than ugly ones.

    Opinion on looks is just that , opinion. Not fact, except to the opinion holder...

    I disagree. She is not ugly. That's a fact.

    I guess if Weinstein is as a big a perv as everyone claims and if he did not hit on her; She must not have been very attractive to him.
    She looks like her Mama. As Fred Sanford says, "Help! Call the Zoo!"
