No, Trey had his chance and screwed it up. His actions show he has no respect for the law, himself, his family, or his position. Actions speak louder than words. This was a display of extremely poor judgment and I don’t believe anything he says. This is not the representation I want.

He WAS given the chance. No drug addicts to represent me. And I do not apologize for wanting in a person what that person promised to give me. And the audacity to vote to make welfare recipients take a DRUG test! Has this man no shame at all? Radel should resign NOW!!!

Trey Radel has no chance of winning the next election. He has destroyed his reputation and any confidence the public had in his ability to represent them in Congress. If he believes this fiasco will go away and the voters will not remember, he is mistaken and it further illustrates his inability to make sound and rational decisions. The longer he continues this futile attempt to save his job, the more harm he does to the GOP and future candidates. By resigning now, he provides his party with a chance to clear the air and wash the smell from their hands before the next election. The backlash that will likely occur in the next election could be disastrous for the GOP. Simply put, Radel’s decision to stay the course is a selfish one. Add to this the recent criminal activities of Steve Lovejoy (local GOP President) and we have a recipe for a GOP collapse in Lee Co

If Radel would just once admit that he has a DRUG problem and try to work on that issue, I might . . . oh, who am I kidding? He had a chance and he blew it. The best thing? He won't even make it to the five-year mark to qualify for that cushy congressional pension. Talk about poetic justice!

If Radel were a democrat, Republicans would have made so much noise that he would have been run out of office by now. Radel's strategy worked for Vitters too.

All I am saying is: give Trey a chance. I know who many of you 'secret' texters are and MOST of YOU have been given a second (or third) chance!

New media a nightmare for Right Wingers who bought all the radio and nearly all of the network tv free speech tv dot com - watch it now.

You can watch it on cable or online live and call in. They actually let you speak and not cut you off if you disagree.

It is the way our media should be - honest and fair. Stephanie Miller is a riot.
