Skip to comments.Shays: DeLay Should Quit As House Leader
Posted on 04/10/2005 2:50:39 PM PDT by FairOpinion
"Tom's conduct is hurting the Republican Party, is hurting this Republican majority and it is hurting any Republican who is up for re-election," Rep. Chris Shays, R-Conn., told The Associated Press in an interview, calling for DeLay to step down as majority leader.
DeLay "becomes the poster child for a lot of the things the Democrats think are wrong about Republican leadership. As long as he's there, he's going to become a pretty good target," Dodd said on ABC.

Bill Christal said it well on FoxNews earlier, that the Dems want DeLay out, because he is the most effective conservative leader in Congress.
I know how to spell Bill Kristol.
LOL! Pretty darned good, FO.
As usual, we eat our own. We will never learn.
Who cares what a liberal Democrat has to say.
Damn straight. DeLay is a good man and Shays should shut his mouth.
The Dems can scream and whine, but can do absolutely NOTHING about DeLay, if the Republicans stick together, which they rarely do. In this respect we should learn from the Dems, who always just brazen things out, and close ranks and support the Dem being accused. The Republicans want to throw any Republican off the train immediately to accomodate the Democrats. It boggles one's mind./
This is how the Republicans obliged the Dems and got rid of Gingrich and Lott.
Can any one spot the key word in this phrase? Yes! It's "think"! Liberals hate anything and everything that doesn't hold the same beliefs that they do. All they need to know to judge you, your friends, ancestors and acquiantences is that you are Republican. Thinking has been out of style at the DNC for years. Anger and hate is all the rage these days.
Seriously whats the deal with Shays.
This guy must love publicity or when people talk about him.
He's worse then Jesse Jackson
"When are we simply going to return fire."
Exactly. The Dems know that "the best defense is an offense". The Republicans are always in the defense mode. It's time they change that.
Ooooh! The Democrats think DeLay is wrong! Time to be really, REALLY scared!
'Eff 'em. If they hate DeLay, he must be doing something right.
Shays is a republican.
I am writing and calling DeLay to hang in there.
Interesting that not a big deal was made of Daschle's wife being an airline lobbyist, working on matters her husband would have to vote.
Reed's family also were given "percs" some of these people need to be brought to the attention of folks to.
It's hilarious to hear the liberals get all sanctimonious about "ethics". Where was their concern about ethics during Bill Clinton's 8 year debauch.
Shays is a sissy-boy. Ain't he from Rhode Island?
Exactly.The Libs also targeted Reagan, Bush and the Pope..... Being a "target" of the Liberals usually does not mean you are wrong. On the contrary, it usually means you are a man of principle and are standing up for something you believe in. Shays should try it for a change.
There were a lott of people right here on this forum looking for Lott's ouster. They saw an opportunity to go for the throat and they went for it. Little did they know we'd get fristed by his twin brother separated at birth.
ANDRE LENOGE: "Where is Congress? Where are the Senators?
Nobody knows this Buchenwald Anniversary. Their chambers are empty. No one is there.
There has only been only one case like this in all of American history.
That was Roanoke Island [North Carolina] in 1587 when everyone disappeared. Every man, woman and child.
Hope is dimming for the missing residents of the US Congress
but .... there is word carved on the wall of the Senate Chamber, "Croaton".
No one knows what it means. Maybe its a place favored for pork? No one knows.
But I do know one thing. Congress will ALL need to be replaced in the next election."
Pinellas county, Florida murderer uncertified Judgenfuhrer Greer:
"It is April 8th. The US Congress is emasculated
and we have proven that the US Congress are pussies,
who write subpoenas unworthy of a bucket of warm Pinellas spit.
18 USC Section 1505 - I urinate on it. Title 2 of the US code - I deficate on it.
Florida Statute 765.309 [prevents mercy killing and assisted suicide] - void in my Court.
Florida Statute 744.3215 [requires that incapacitated people cannot be deprived of food and water]] - void in my Court.
Florida Statute 765.404 [which says that clear and convincing evidence of the ward's intent for medical treatment must be established] ] - void in my Court."
Shays is an ass. He knows Clinton raped Juanita but voted NO on impeachment. He is the embarrassment.
Apparently Shays can't keep his mouth shut. Must come from his propensity to pole-smoke.
What state is Rhode Island in?
Rino Shay's throw mama from the train doublecross tactic won't work.
I don't take seriously anything Congressman Sashays says.
Frist better get his helmet on and go to war.
For purposes of providing a benchmark Clinton approached or achieved "Foulest." Gingrich likewise.
Now the problem for the poor slob governed by these classes of "persons" is chosing the least bad. To put it another way the poor decent individual must apply the doctrine of relative filth at voting time. This congress wretch is probably to be placed in the merely "Foul" category. (Though he may have a twelve year old pleasure boy stashed away somewhere-that I don't know!)
Shays is a sissy-boy. Ain't he from Rhode Island?
You are being generous. I would call him a school girl at best.
This makes me angry. Republicans simply don't stick by their friends like Democrats do. DeLay suffers in a way that few other politicians suffer for doing what is right. He has not been accused of any crimes. This is what he gets. If the Republican Party follows the advice, they are faithless.
Fu#k em! When are we going to grow some balls and go after Grand Master Dragan Imperial Wizard Klu Klux Klan Byrd?
Hey - that's no way to talk about my congressman! He's an a-hole. Get it right!
Isn't it a town in Florida?
Prissy Chrissy would rather curry favor with the RATs and the press than defend his own leader.
Well Shays has to be concerned about his constituents but calling for DeLay to step down is way overboard. He can distance himself from DeLay without giving comfort to the rats.
The rats think DeLay's comments about impeaching Greer made him vulnerable so they are coming out with a bunch of piddly campaign charges. The fact that they waited until now to release them together shows they are insubstantial. I see no comments from the GOP leadership to indicate DeLay's days are numbers. This is a media fishing expedition.
Agreed. Whether its a fishing expedition by the left or not, the Reps need to understand their loyalties and step up to the plate.
Whats good for the nation is good for the party! My patience with the Reps is just about gone at this point. If they want to be liked, they are in the wrong business.
Never new it, but this thread, I guess that saying goes even further with Shays.
Get wimmin and fags out of government. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Shays sucks citrus fruit.
Do they really? Is this just another media-spawned scandal? I honestly don't know. Although it's nothing new for Shays to team up with the Dims, where is the vocal support for DeLay from the rest of the GOP majority?
"Shays: why should McCain be the media's ONLY favorite Republican?"
I think you may have hit the nail on the head.
The Hammer will survive, but Shays wont.
