The Cafferty File: To the polls? Anyone kept an eye on his ?'s He is good
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 08:08 PM by sce56
Too bad he doesn't have a show of his own he could be the Olbermann of CNN. /

On "The Situation Room" today, we asked viewers the following questions, and here are some of our favorite responses that we didn't get to read on air:

Are you more interested in the upcoming midterms than you have been in past elections?

I am absolutely more interested in the midterm elections. I am the proud wife of a soldier currently serving in the Middle East and I feel I need to let my voice be heard and my best way of doing it is to vote and hopefully my vote will bring about some change. Not to mention this is my first time voting since becoming a U.S citizen one year ago this month.
Dudine, Killeen, Texas

I am very interested in the midterm elections. The problem is who do I vote for: the Democrats who have no answers, or the Republicans who have the wrong answers?
Michael, Mountain City, Tennessee

The way we are losing our civil liberties now I think we need to get this election right more than ever because this very well may be the last chance we get to cast a meaningful vote. So yes, I am very interested in this election.
David, Chouteau, Oklahoma

Jack, How could we help but be more interested in the upcoming election? It seems like everything we care about has reached the flash point.
Damon, Mesa, Arizona

When it comes to Iraq, what are we doing?

In Iraq we're being sucked down a meat grinder we had no business getting near. The abysmally inept Bush administration just doesn't get that there is no victory or success for America in Iraq. Our troops are cannon fodder in this colossal catastrophe

We are making our politicians and the special interest groups much richer while the rest of us middle class workers are watching this country go down the toilet!
Ron, Plattsmouth, Nebraska

We are creating opportunities for defense contractors to make money. I used to work with the defense industry, and among contractors, they have all said, the party ends in January 2009.

Like most people, I have no clue, other than finding new and creative ways to waste money and reduce the population. But if you figure out that it's something else, will you please inform the Pentagon and the Bush Administration?
Jennifer, Las Vegas, Nevada

Is it unfair for Rep. Christopher Shays to compare the Foley scandal to the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident involving Senator Ted Kennedy?

Jack, No, it's not fair; the Kennedy incident was way worse. Kennedy should have been tried for a crime and never allowed to be a U.S. Senator. It's not ok for Foley or anyone to stalk children. Both should not be in the U.S. government.
Rick, Phoenix, Arizona

Unfair? Since when was anything in politics fair? The GOP is desperate, and its candidates will say anything that they think might protect their jobs. If all they have got left is to remind us of Democratic scandals in the distant, or even recent, past the GOP is in serious trouble.
Mike, Arlington, Virginia

Kennedy's tragedy hurt only the family of the girl and Kennedy himself. Foley's behavior toward Congressional pages was predatory. He used his position for personal gratification and he used people trying to protect children as dupes to gain his own end. Additionally, the Congressional leadership did not try to cover up for Kennedy.
Joseph, New Jersey

1. Never allowed to be a US Senator?
He'd already been a US Senator for 7 years before it happened, dimwit :eyes:

2. I sure hope you mean Rick, Phoenix, Arizona is the dimwit!
As I did not edit out the answers that were anti Kennedy.

I have seen Jack question the logic coming out of the white house quite a bit this past year. Don't belive me then go to crooks and liars and see the posting for him listed there! /
