There is corruption and dishonesty in all aspects of life, but at least the Democrats OWN UP to our mistakes and don't try to REWRITE HISTORY.

Just like the WTC. They don't want you to know what really happened there at SH. Another cover up of a cover up.

If you knew someone personally involved in this tragedy at Sandy Hook, you wouldn't be so glib with your comments. The classrooms involved are so horribly filled with evidence of the death and destruction of children. Too many shattered lives including 7 year old witnesses dealing with the horrors of PTSD, for you to be so callous. The school needs to be leveled for a new beginning to start there, so that the siblings can return to their school.

Democrats do it again! Find ways to pad the voting rolls by changing workers from nonessential to essential! Yet another scam by the democrat machine. More federal workers now unable to be furloughed. What a nightmare this administration be. And the GOP lets it happen. Sickening.

If -as you say - the 'GOP lets it happen' shows just how weak and ineffective the GOP is. They can't even present a single, united front TO THEIR OWN PARTY!
