NOT Fiscal Conservative Total Deregulation aka Laissez Faire Government Very Conservative Supreme Court One Party System - Facism Unfair Taxation Has no use for republicans or democrats More Big Government Control Reckless Spending New World Order/Global Economy = USA Jobs primary export Reaganomics/ 1% Economics Anti Choice Anti Public Education Revert back to old Med Insurance System = Screws the consumer worse Grover Norquist/Koch Family Economics Home Loan Frauds Banking Frauds Anti American Job Market Fears USA employment Fears Educated Americans

In spite of the fact that the FBI was called in to investigate GOP drinking and nudity in Israel this entire party is a distraction, an obstacle to new economic grow and against millions of new jobs in America.

The folks over in Israel are all wondering why this was even being reported in the paper. No big deal at all. My view all along.

A Rueters newsfeed story in the Jerusalem Post, but the comments make it abundantly clear it's less than a yawn:

Actually, this is the first thing I've heard about Yoder that I liked. Tempest in a teapot. Why should he apologize to anyone for it?

So what? he went skinny dipping. If he were a democrat, we probably wouldn't hear a thing. It would be expected for a liberal to do something like this.

consumer1, you should get together with SageonPage! You two have the same Clinton fetish!

"Hey, consumer1, congratulations on your oldest getting engaged! When's the wedding?" "Clinton/Lewinsky!"

"Honey, what did the mechanic say about that weird noise coming from the car engine?" "Clinton/Lewinsky!"

"Thank you, ma'am. And Sir, what can I bring you for dinner this evening?" "Clinton/Lewinsky!"

"Dad! Dad! Guess who got nominated for student council president?!?" "Clinton/Lewinsky!"

Who here hasn't skinny dipped at least once?

A non-issue IMO and I'm not a Yoder fan.

The question is loaded anyway, the wrong question is being asked.

At least he wasn't having gay sex in an airport?

It's not a huge deal. My circle of friends are making a big deal out of it on Facebook (I am as well) but that's because we all grew up with Kevin and have known him since his Democratic days.

Assuming he didn't do it where kids could see, I don't really care. I can only imagine how badly this sort of thing would have been received if it were a Dem. It'd be Anthony Wiener all over again.

And Kennedy was a choir boy!! Accused of rape & murder. Remember him sitting on Clinton's ethic panel not saying a word.

Had to vote "no". I think we're quite capable of distracting ourselves from the important issues on our own. If it wasn't this, it would just be something else.

Do you think President Clinton banging his intern has a negative impact on his Presidency ? Oh he was married so that makes it okay...

consumer1 1 year, 8 months ago

Did he leave any stains on the interns dress? Or, did he do anything involving cigar???

the journal world is certainly doing the best it can to try to make this a huge distraction. No bias in this print media( ha ha).

Teddy Roosevelt would skinny dip in the White House pool.

Give it a break...I just think people need something to b!t(h about. This happened a year ago and as I've seen he's still doing his job. Can't say how well because I don't keep up with him. I don't think skinny dipping is a crime - heck I did it in the Atlantic ocean at Rohobeth years ago and I haven't turned into a craze maniac yet. He's human even if he is a politician. Heck we were all born naked. Naturally if he preached against skinny dipping then did it I would be concerned. I bet he passed gas too, does that disqualify him for the government? This is just so petty. There are more important things going on then making a big deal out of a poltician going for a dip in the buff. Get over it already now.

Would this be classified as a periscope down or up incident? Kid Rock might have a new summer hit coming out (the Sea of Galilee remix) titled smoking all summer long.

What is so wrong about this? In the most liberal town in Kansas and all of a sudden skinny dipping when it is almost completely dark has offended people? This a non-issue and thousands of dollars of our money was wasted by the FBI to investigate it when that money could have been served better elsewhere.

No way are there issues more important than this! Romney should quickly focus his campaign on the right to bathe nude in public waterways!

I figure the Holy Water Jesus walked on evaporated long ago and has since rained down all over the world. Hell, I've probably flushed a bit of it down the stool and it has since evaporated into the clouds. Think about THAT the next time you walk in the rain.

Ya know, in a normal world, I would say no big deal. Could care less. Why all the fuss?

But, this is not a normal world.

This is flipped conservative hell.

So, if this conservative whack off is going to preach his morals onto others --- and this jerk does --- then I am laughing my butt off at this one and hope it continues to blow up on him......

So there ya have it ya jerk......

I think the guy is a philandering sleazeball. However, much like his refusal to take a breathalizer test, this will go away.

FROM YODER'S STANDPOINT, THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS HE HAS DONE.

What a dummy... seriously... what a dummy.... But we have had been led by a lot of dummies doing worse things... sometimes in the Sea of Galilee, sometimes in the oval office...

We have to have confidence in our elected leaders and know they have the sense to do the right things. Yoder has broken that trust and confidence.
