"The Cafferty File": Bathroom bust?Should the U.S. Senate expel Senator Larry Craig?
I believe in giving people three chances, however as a conservative family values person, I am tired of those who claim to be that and do not live up to what they preach. If you are going to talk the talk you must be able to walk the walk or keep silent. Personally, I would not vote for him, however that is up to Idaho's people. -Karen, Kalamazoo, Michigan
I think he should be expelled, but not for the reasons most people think. If you are going to be a senator, you have to be a good liar. If you are going to make up a story, you need to be able to make up something half-way believable. His version of events doesn't even come close. We have come to expect Senate members to lie to us, we just expect them to do a better job of it. -James, Jamestown, Virginia
Hasn't our trust as Americans been betrayed enough? I say he shouldn't be allowed to leave on his own terms he should be fired! -Jacob, Hawaii
The U.S. Senate should find him a good psychologist. For what it's worth, I just bet my husband 20 bucks that within a week there would be an announcement about an alcohol or prescription drug problem... man, this stuff is getting so predictable. -Marie, Roseville, California
How does New Orleans represent many of this country's problems?
It's simple, Jack. Everybody wants something for nothing; everyone thinks the government should be the solution to their particular problem. Nobody asks: where does the money come from? -Henry
The handling of New Orleans embodies the philosophy of modern conservatives: that ordinary citizens can't rely on their leaders for anything, let alone for help during a crisis. To them, the mere absence of another terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 is the only barometer of effective leadership. My only hope is that our next president understands that it simply doesn't work that way. -Dan, Seaford, New York
New Orleans' tragedy is a microcosm of our troubles. Unfortunately this happened at a time when the party of "family value" is in power. So if you have very little or no money, you are off the radar screen. It says that the administration of this party has shown it cares little for humanity, nor does it believe in giving its fellow man a hand up. -Barbara, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
