tom delay is the poster child of the attitude and arrogance of the republican party.....tom delay is a friend of the bush administration and clearly represents their blunt attempt to high jack our country with misrepresentations, criminal activity, deception and lies. they have sabotaged our country's dignity and trust around the world. they are no better than saddam hussien, hitler, mao or lennen....sadly, they drape themseslves in the american flag, god and the american way......they have ruined our country, brought us to near bankruptcy, depleted our military, turned their backs on our economy and brought us to a near third world just a few years, the republican party, led by the likes of dick cheney, george bush and tom delay have destroyed what was once the greatest country in the world. they should be brought to justice and tried as war criminals and charged with treason.....tom, dick and bush belong in will take years and a strong leader to bring our country back to where we were just five years ago.....our biggest threat and terrorist live in the white house.......
