Which affair is worse?

John Ensign says he is BETTER than Bill Clinton. His affair broke no laws (lie) and he didn't lie to the American people so his affair wasn't as bad...agree??

1) He banged his married family friend of 20 years that his wife and kids all knew
2) Got his PARENTS to pay his whore off
3) paid their SON thousands to keep quiet
4) By making such stupid assertions proves he just doesn't get it!

This is the kind of leadership the republicans are offering, WTF?

  • This is the PERSONAL business of the individuals and their families.

    Unless there is a victim - like an underling being used by his/her boss, or a crime - like revealing gov't secrets to a mistress, then IT IS NONE OF OUR BUSINESS !!

    Democrat / Republican or Timbuktu-an, is the person fulfilling his/her duties? Are they, for instance, reading the legislation before they pass it?

    I don't care what color socks they wear, whether they say grace before meals, or anything else in their private life. As long as they are not using their elected office for corruption, IT IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.

  • Sin is sin regardless of political party.

    God judges sin of any kind, and Jesus died to redeem sinners.

    "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."

    "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

    "For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son, and whosoever believes on Him shall not

    perish, but have everlasting life."

  • "This is the kind of leadership the republicans are offering, WTF?"

    Pot calling kettle black, isn't it? What Clinton did was wrong, what Ensign did was wrong, Ensign's an ass, as in Clinton. Hilary is a bigger ass for staying with Bill through his numerous public affairs.

    The Democratic party nominated Clinton for president knowing he was a cheating bastard (remember Genifer Flowers?), and the Democrats elected Clinton knowing he was a cheating bastard.

    The leadership the Republican party is offering is EXACTLY what the Democrats had to offer.

  • From Wikipedia:

    "Gennifer Flowers came forward during Bill Clinton's 1992 Presidential election campaign alleging that she had had a twelve-year relationship with him.[1] Flowers at first denied that she had an affair with Clinton, but later changed her story.[2]

    After Bill Clinton denied having a relationship with Flowers on 60 Minutes, she held a press conference in which she played tape recordings she claimed were of secretly recorded intimate phone calls with Bill Clinton.[2] Clinton subsequently apologized publicly to Mario Cuomo for remarks he made about the former governor on the tapes. "

  • His excuse making makes me ill! He is no better and he is only trying to fool himself. They both are full of lust and deceit. He may not have lied to the whole group of American people, but he certainly lied to his wife and family (who are American people). Don't justify your wrong behavior!!!! (I am a conservative rebuplican).

  • Affairs are equal, however, Bill Clinton was in office and did an intern, which by law is wrong. A boss can not have a relationship with anyone under him, because of possible favoritism.  So with that aspect, in a sense yes and he flat out lied to the American Public.  On top of that, you could possibly add sexual harassment, considering prior contact between Bill and Monica.

    Let me add though, if Bill had an affair with a woman who did not work for him, that would be a whole another matter.
