    Disgusting! Leave it to the Democ Rats to try to demean one of the refined,hard-working,dedicated Senators,Senator Robert Menendez,who happens to work to support maligned people and causes. We support you,Senator Robert Menendez!

    Very strange especially when Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have done far worse.

    Just as Mit Romney discovered to his everlasting frustration, Barack Obama is as nasty] a street fighter as ever brought a gun to a knife fight. Indicting Senator Menendez has to have been a presidential command. Eric Holder does not possess the gonads to take this action without Obama’s prior approval.

How can I think otherwise when Obama the great Chochem Talmud attacked Senator Menendez at the Press Conference dinner.prosecuted. This is faster than Holder has acted since he took office. LKet us call “swifty: Obama’s hatchet man/
