Media Beginning to see Abramoff a Republican problem

For the first time, I actually spotted an article on Reuters.com that doesn't mention Democrats with the scandal.  The article concerns Harry Reid's comments on the Democrats' radio address this weekend.

  • [Link]
  • "Democrats accused Republicans on Saturday of using "doublespeak" and abusing their power in order to help special interest groups.

    With Republicans burdened by the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said in the weekly Democratic radio address that years of controlling both the White House and Congress had corrupted the Republican Party."

    Sure, this doesn't come right out and say the media is wrong to report Democrats as taking dirty money.  But what it does do by leaving them out of it I believe is unprecedented.  The media is acting outside of Republican pressure, claiming this a bi-partisan problem.  This is some good news for the press, in what hasn't been their best week among the blogs.

    "I no way was reasonable in any..."
    John Nicosia, said Harry Reid said:

    Gee, Harry, ten years from now, George Warlord Bush will just say "I really not could hep it. The power -- it was the power, the coke, the martinis -- I mean, they took over. I no way was reasonable in any way for those stuff."

    POLITICIANS need for MONEY is the real problem..
    That is what fuels the lobbying machine.. that fact that senators and congressmen must compete for ever increasing amounts of cash for their campaigns and the lobbyists are there (funded by corporate funds) to do it. The whole stinking process should be outlawed. Corporations should only be allowed to operate so much as they support the public good as well as their business purpose and lobbying with the funds of their stockholders should be prohibited.

    Seriously. Lobbying and other forms of corporate contributions should be outlawed.

    CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE...
