We didn't know the full extent, and we probably still don't, but there should have been a judgement made. If you failed to make it, that's on you.
    Were you as outraged by Bill Clinton? Or, does he get a pass because he's a liberal Democrat? Be honest now.

    Democrats are up in arms against Trump for saying some "Naughty words", however, they just think: "Well, Bill was just being Bill." He's a "Good old boy, at heart."

    "Naughty words?"

    The denial is strong with this one.

    He's been accused of multiple accounts of sexual assault, which isn't the same thing as "womanizing." And yet - your outrage is with the timing of the reports. There's something wrong with that.

    He doesn't get any kind of pass. But there's a difference. The only thing he was definitively found to have done is have a series of affairs. That's not illegal, and it isn't Hillary's fault. There was a special prosecutor with $40 million to try to dig up something to charge him with, and the best they could find was perjury related to a consensual affair and obstruction of justice, neither of which lead to a conviction in the Senate. Bill is definitely a bad husband, and he might be a lot worse, but the evidence of the worse is relatively weak, and ultimately, its up to Hillary how to handle to "bad husband" side of things. If she wants to forgive his infidelity, that's fine with me, and it doesn't hurt my impression of her one iota.

    Odd that you're suddenly indifferent to the character of the person you're supporting. You think that's consistent with your approach to other candidates for office?

    I think you're wrong about that, but there's barely time for policy in an election as horrible as this one has been. Trumps policy proposals have been downright incoherent, most of the time.

    So, Trump saying some "Nasty things" is FAR worse than Clinton's accusations of rape and many affairs? You sure have a strange way of measuring wrongness? According to you, words are worse than actions. I get it.

    Hey, Rex, is nasty talk a crime? If so, is it considered a Misdemeanor or a Felony?

    You can't even present what's happened accurately, so determined are you to minimize the awfulness of Trump. What Trump was caught saying on the bus to Billy Bush was about as bad as possible, but it isn't the extent of the latest outrage. There have been eight women who've come forward to say that those words describe things that he did to them. If Clinton is a rapist, the evidence of it is fairly weak, and he's never actually justified sexual assault as far as I know.

    And no, an affair isn't on the same level as what Trump has definitely said, or what he's been accused of doing.

    There are currently more accusations of actual actions against Trump then there ever were against Bill Clinton. And again, Bill is not running for any office.

    Rex said the following in Post # 22 "He doesn't get any kind of pass. But there's a difference. The only thing he was definitively found to have done is have a series of affairs. That's not illegal, and it isn't Hillary's fault."

    So, if we go by what Rex is saying, Trump's "dirty talk" is worse than Bill's rape charges and affairs.

    Try reading a little closer.

    Nuff said. I rest my case.
