Nancy Pelosi promised the most open, ethical Congress. Do you think they were successful? Why or why not? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/09/29/pelosis-ethical-congress-pledge-falters/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+foxnews%2Fpolitics+%28Internal+-+Politics+-+Text%29 While there are ethics issues in both parties, and both the House and the Senate, which would you say is the worst and which is the most ethical?

Of course, this is not the "most ethical" Congress. It's most obviously the least ethical. The Democrats have unabashedly and traitorously installed an illegal alien in the office of presidency. That's just for starters. Traitors like O, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Clinton, etc. running this country are an outrage; every one of them belongs in prison. These are not just "personal little peccadillos", friends, but a corrupt den of thieves selling out our sovereignty and freedoms for their own power-mongering and greed. So, now, in my mind, the word Democrat equates with the most odious, dirtiest, sneakiest,corrupt, stinking stench, and blight on society. The Republicans had better stop trying to be Democrats, and clean up their acts post haste if our country has any chance at all for survival.

Damn good start after 12 years of no ethics commitee hearings the Congress and Senate getting rid of both ethics commitee's. Give them another couple of years and they might get a few more that everyone knows are gilty. Too bad she decided not to prosecute or hold hearings about war crimes but I have have quit writing nasty letters about that one.

Good morning, Laglen. I think both parties have ethics issues and the issues are in both the House and the Senate (oh, did I mention the Administration?). One reason I'd like to see term limits... Did Pelosi keep her promise? Heck no! If anything, I think it could be worse. I have no proof without some research, but my gut says it's worse with Congressmen/women and Senators being bought by lobbyists left and right. One reason I'd like to see lobbying brought to a halt. I'd like to see meaningful campaign reform! I'd like to see the DOJ prosecute voting irregularities! Don't get me started...I have to go to work soon .

Nancy Pelosi doesn't know how to spell the word ethical much less what it means..Have you notice how both parties say one thing and do another it's call never let one hand know what the other is doing..... Obama has promissed change but I don't think the American People knew he was going to be giving everything over to the United Nations....
