I watched him stumble his way around Tippecanoe Country Club one night this past summer. Many people were commenting how embarrassing it was to see a Congressman out in public in such a drunken condition. So goes it in the Mahoning Valley. If you have a "D" by your name in the voting booth, you are almost guaranteed a victory. Nothing else matters. I would personally take a large bet that he was way over the legal limit in Virginia too. But having friends in high places sure has its benefits, huh?

Unbelievable! Almost $4k per month for a part time job. (Before anyone starts questioning the $4k, it includes the benefits too). Cut the pay and get rid of the benefits. Get rid of half of them as the city is less than half the size that it used to be. Then hire more policeman with the savings to control the punks who rule the streets. Let the honest and hard working people live a good life again.

doubled - you really should learn the facts before going off with your UAW inspired speech. You know, trying to scare the uninformed voters of America into thinking horrible things are going to happen to them if Romney gets elected. Playing up the paranoia and fears in the unknown. Give me a break. Obama couldn't stand up in this debate because he faced a clearly superior rival. He is severely lacking in both economic and tax related knowledge compared to Romney.
And two things have changed from the last debates in 2008. First, he is debating a truly competent opponent with an incredible business record instead of a broken down old war hero with no real life experience. Secondly, this time he has to dodge his pitiful record instead of just spewing out unrealistic promises. A record that includes a health care plan that he shoved down our throats while his own government doesn't live by it. Romney is too smart and experienced for Obama. Obama is massively outclassed by a guy who has saved more companies and jobs than Obama can ever dream of. And all the liberals can mount for a response is to throw out the weak story that you are parroting. Obama's record is killing him. And speaking about lies, how about Obama's promise after he was first elected? "If I can't fix this economy, I don't deserve a second term." Great! Time to leave now! Truth be told, Hillary was probably the most capable one running in 2008. The sad truth is that all of the blood suckers living off the system get a vote. Otherwise, Obama would lose by a landslide.
It really goes down to this. Our country was founded with two principles in mind: capitalism and Christianity. Romney believes in both. Obama believes in neither. Enough said.

Bert definitely has a man crush. And maybe you should read the book Bert. It is scary how many of Jimbo's predictions came true. They were dead on. And consider how long ago these speeches were made. He may be a bit crazy, but he certainly is bright. Whether you like him or not, there is no denying it.

gdog: There's a bombshell. Sounds like you know something that the rest of us don't. Now the feds had enough evidence to indict his family too, but chose not to. And your breaking the news!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, right. They really held back on old Jimbo. Give me a break. Like you know something here. It sounds like you blow as much smoke as the rest of the politicians.

Talk about delusional, or maybe just in denial. How about you Bertram? I think that Bertram has a man-crush on Traficant. Let it go already. We know that you hate him. I am sure that he feels the same about you. Move on to the next subject for you to moan about please.

You guys obviously just hate Mooney (and after looking at some of Irishtiger's other posts, you have some serious anger and hate issues for others too). I was on the sidelines at the game. Watch the game again and be objective. Check out the late hits put on by the Big Red. They played right on the edge of the rule book for the entire game. Two obvious out of bounds late hits were not called in the first half. As far as the kid abusing the ref, he absolutely deserved it. You should have heard that kids abuse. I officiated high school and college sports for many years. I never felt the need to take abuse from a kid, or to take him to the coach to take care of my problem. By the time a kid has reached those levels, they understand their boundaries. I am sure that he was warned by the ref during the game. Did you ever think that maybe the kid deserved that penalty (because he did)? This is just another problem with society. Kids don't have to be responsible for their actions anymore. People like you make excuses for their horrible behavior and actions.

I can't believe it. I may need to call 9-1-1. I actually got through a complete Bertram article without wanting to throw up. And worse yet, I actually agree with him on this one.

As if the tragedy these scum caused wasn't enough, now the city gets another. We get to spend money that should be spent on honest tax-paying citizens to prosecute these scum. Then we get to pay for them to live for the next 40 or 50 years behind bars. MrBill has it right. Give them their day in court, and then march them behind the courthouse to save society a lot of money.
