It's typical of lying Republicans like McCain
(2008's sore loser) to go on beating a dead
horse. Like Eric Holder, Rice has been
exonerated. Trouble is that McCain is too old
and stupid to get it through his thick skull.
His witch hunt is over.
For a guy who was the cause of the 1967 Forrestal
disaster causing the loss of 134 lives he
sure has a lot to say.
What a creep!
What has happened to the GOP?! Over the past 12 years I have seen it become the party of big spenders, anti-civil rights, anti-helping the needy and the poor, witchhunts, and pro rich people. Instead of helping the economy and the middle class to grow, they've been focused on witchhunts.

You tea-bagging idiots are in so much pain all because the Black guy won again, LOL!
Patty. "The Black guy"??? Rather racist. The correct term, as we are told by NBC news for mixed race, is 'near-white'

Bush Republicans Planned Invading Iraq In 1998
Dear Mr. President: William J. Clinton
http://tinyurl.com/7ots / January 26, 1998
We are writing you because we are convinced that current American policy toward Iraq is not succeeding, and that we may soon face a threat in the Middle East more serious than any we have known since the end of the Cold War. In your upcoming State of the Union Address, you have an opportunity to chart a clear and determined course for meeting this threat. We urge you to seize that opportunity, and to enunciate a new strategy that would secure the interests of the U.S. and our friends and allies around the world. That strategy should aim, above all, at the removal of Saddam Hussein’s regime from power. We stand ready to offer our full support in this difficult but necessary endeavor.
We urge you to articulate this aim, and to turn your Administration's attention to implementing a strategy for removing Saddam's regime from power. This will require a full complement of diplomatic, political and military efforts. Although we are fully aware of the dangers and difficulties in implementing this policy, we believe the dangers of failing to do so are far greater. We believe the U.S. has the authority under existing UN resolutions to take the necessary steps, including military steps, to protect our vital interests in the Gulf. In any case, American policy cannot continue to be crippled by a misguided insistence on unanimity in the UN Security Council.
We urge you to act decisively. If you act now to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. or its allies, you will be acting in the most fundamental national security interests of the country. If we accept a course of weakness and drift, we put our interests and our future at risk.

Angry race baiting Libs?

Libs are profoundly ignorant of the TEA Party and much prefer, in their ignorance and hatred, to believe their own propaganda. There has been extremely little racial rhetoric from the TEA Party, but the REgressives cannot even think about TEA without inciting racial animosity. Example - the REgressives accuse the TEA Party and the RNC, of being too white, male, and old, which is racist, sexist, and ageist and further, by using the slur "teabagger", with it's homosexual connotation, the REgressives reveal themselves to be preoccupied, or rather obsessed, with sexual preferences.

Hmmmm, the TEA Party is concerned with financial issues and attendant social deficiencies, and that is deemed racial, etc? The REgressives constantly harp on race, gender, sexual activity and false allegations and that shows tolerance? In a pigs eye! This reality only shows the REgressives to be intolerant and irrational

Susan Rice may be black, and she may be a female, but neither insulates her from due criticism when she dis-informed the public. She either was told what to say and didn't question the meme, or she deliberately misinformed. So, either she's clueless or a liar. Which is she? Liar or unquestioning propagandist? Either answer disqualifies her from public office, of any sort.
she is just like the rest of obamas puppet team she said what he told her to say remember there was an election date set and rice was just putting off what was really important.all of obamas workers are nothing but a bunch of puppets.the general just found an easy way to get out of a position that he didnt want anymore.obama makes up the lies and his puppets tell them on tv

No you idiot, Ft. Hood was violence in the work place. Furthermore, are you really that stupid to think that Ft. Hood was a terrorist attack, or that it is on the level on the worst terrorist attack that happened on American soil – that happened on Bush’s watch?

Wow, you right-wingers are really desperate after we kicked your ass on Election Night, LOL!

It's one of the greatest misdirection efforts of all times. Asking for ID'S in order to vote in the United States "denies the POOR/UNEDUCATED their rights".
The libs get their panties all in a wad as if anyone believes their cries of discrimination. The main street media picks up this red herring and makes fools of themselves as if it is an absolute truth.
They have opened the door for fraud since they have in effect legitimized the practice. The only solution will be through the Supreme Court and that is iffy.

I keep waiting for them to smarten up, and learn from their mistakes, but they just keep banging the same drum....Not sure, in the longrun that instigators like Fox, Beck and Limbaugh aren't more a detriment, than a plus....seem's they might have led the party away from the center and what their core beliefs, should have been....

Talk about race, Where is the NAACP regarding the Alan West situation? There is evidence of fraud here. A white man beat out a black man for a public position. More votes were counted than registered voters, votes were counted and overturned in St Lucie
where a 2000 vote lead turned into a 2400 vote hole. This is just one county, in one state where voter fraud may have and possibly did take place. I feel once again we have been had. Good luck America. We are going to need it. It is more than just election results. We can live with that. But the integrity of our democratic election process is at stake.
