Wright refuses to denounce using tax dollars as payoff for politicians behaving badly. After that Lehrer asks if he is expecting a reward (replacing Lopez on housing). Depressing.

@ ED, Actually it is. Rangel is 10x worse, I've said so countless times but I forgot ED, you have a soft spot for corrupt, democratic party bosses, who never leave, that waste your tax money covering up sex scandals. I apologize in advance for being a "racist, rabid, anti-Semite" for saying so.

OH NOooo not more Eastwood! I am not as gracious as the President, I didn't think the comments were funny, they were certainly not appropriate for the youth do you explain "he can't do that to himself" ughhh embarrassing just embarrasing....I will NOT pay money to see the new movie!

How is either candidate planning to implement his programs and positions without the cooperation of congress?

And what is Obama's message to voters about providing a cooperative congress?
Why don't dems come out in midterm elections? They only seem to be interested in voting for president.

Why doesn't Camden call in the National Guard? Is a privatized police force really an answer? Sounds like state of emergency.

Wait, I thought the investigation had already made its findings on Vito Lopez. What stage is the investigation at?

Vito "cash in envelopes" Lopez, is not going anywhere voluntarily, he is a "made" man of the NY Democratic mob machine. Shelly " I will die in office" Silver is ordering political hit men as we speak.
