The IRS should audit those Republicans!Moving on...
IT’S NO SURPRISE that Senate Republicans grouse about Obama administration policies on enforcing civil rights laws or limiting greenhouse-gas emissions. They are entitled to their policy views.
It’s a different matter for Republican leaders to manifest their views by blocking confirmation to Cabinet positions of the officials in charge of those policies. By doing so, on absurdly flimsy pretexts, Republicans not only impede the president’s nominations for labor secretary and chief of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but also undermine the normal flow of government, upon which presidents of both parties have depended. They help to subvert whatever is left of Americans’ faith in government. And they may give frustrated Democrats an excuse to rewrite Senate rules in a way that both parties will have cause to regret.

It's either that... or they don't appreciate being lied to about Benghazi.
#118941 May 13, 2013
You sure use the word LIE alot, don't you. As I've said before, the only people using that word (besides you and little teddy) are the Republicans and they haven't actually proved anybody has lied, you know. This country requires proof and a trial to determine that. Til now all we have are right wing storm troopers ACCUSING people of lying. You don't seem to know the difference, right.
Why not just send us your little link leading to the PROOF that someone is lying.'Cause until that happens the one here lying is you and Republican buddies.
Hey, I thought you were done with all this. Yeah, right.

PPP’s newest national poll finds that Republicans aren’t getting much traction with their focus on Benghazi over the last week.
Voters trust Hillary Clinton over Congressional Republicans on the issue of Benghazi by a 49/39 margin and Clinton’s +8 net favorability rating at 52/44 is identical to what it was on our last national poll in late March.
Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans remain very unpopular with a 36/57 favorability rating.
Yeah, she’s smiling.
She is the scandal whisperer.

More from the anti-American storm-trooper tea party:
Four months ago, Tea Party candidates took over the state government of South Carolina – both chambers of the General Assembly, as well as the governorship. Together, the newly elected office holders have been hellbent on eviscerating every social program they can get their hands on in the name of doing “the people’s business.”
Among the proposals that have been introduced are a $200 million cut to state universities, shortening early voting, totally eliminating both Sunday voting and same-day voters’ registration, easing environmental restrictions on fracking, cutting benefits to the unemployed (already signed into law), refusing federal dollars for Medicaid expansion for the poor, and–oh, yeah–establishing an official state religion.
Whew, should thrill you righties. Especially that part about establishing an official state religion.

Jay Carney said,“The White House and the State Department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those two, of these two institutions were changing the word ‘consulate’ to ‘diplomatic facility’ because ‘consulate’ was inaccurate.”
ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.
Jay Carney attempted to mislead America... ya know, lie.
I'm sure that since he's not a Republican, you won't consider it a lie, and I look forward to hearing what you call an intentional attempt to mislead Americans.

You are pitiful.

A thorough report was compiled. Authored by Thomas Pickering, an esteemed retired diplomat, and Adm. Mike Mullen, an equally esteemed retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They found the standard mistakes and snafus — but no crime.
Watergate was a crime. Iran-contra was a crime. Government officials were convicted and some of them went to jail.
Fudging a press release is not a crime. Compromising on wording is not a crime. Making a decision — even if wrong — that there was no time to call in the cavalry is not a crime. And having inadequate security is not only not a crime but partly a consequence of congressional budget cuts.
There it is. Now watch as you little bullies root around in the your perpetual cesspool of hate, fear and paranoia and create the actual lies.

You asked for a lie, not a crime. I gave you a lie.
#118949 May 13, 2013
So why can't you provide a link to proof that ANYONE, anybody at all was lying. Because you're a prejudiced right wing flunkie doesn't mean anybody lied.
And what are you telling yourself the reason for ANY lying would be? I'd love to hear that one.
#118950 May 13, 2013
I did. Post #118944. You made a lame attempt at refuting it by saying that it wasn't a "crime." But we were taking about lies... not crimes.
Your idiotic rebuttal to my post was a report that concluded that a LIE isn't a crime.
I've already posted a lie, your rebuttal was in itself an admission that Carney lied... and yet you continue to act like a child. You asked for a lie from the administration and I gave you a glaring example.
Grow up and realize that republicans don't have a monopoly on lies.
#118951 May 14, 2013
So what you're salivating over is Jay Carney's reference to a different number of changes to the talking points? Really?
Man you are really serious business, aren't you? What a toady. Line up with the rest of your creepy pals doing the same whooping war dance of comparison to Watergate and Iran Contra. No wait, those were crimes so no comparison, right?
#118952 May 14, 2013
What, exactly are you thugs after with Benghazi anyhow.
#118953 May 14, 2013
Even though I'm not a huge fan of Obama's performance I thought I would provide some FACTS for all you Obama haters:
The economy has added more jobs since Obama took office than it did in his predecessor’s entire eight years in office. Oops!
Federal spending under Obama has grown faster than inflation, but far more slowly than it did under President Bush. Oops!
Domestic oil production has soared; oil imports have dropped by one-third; new cars are getting 17 percent better mileage; and wind and solar power have increased 157 percent. Oops!

The hubris of a Marin Community College sophomore presuming to self-righteously lecture a "geriatric" (wrong once again, my little Marin Candyland lib prog toolbox) on the value of wisdom and long experience with the ways of the real world is truly hilarious.
You're on a roll, joe - you are a bottomless fountain of entertainment in dramatic irony. As mindlessly entertaining as a good game of whack-a-mole; you keep popping back up with ever more inane, petulant, and sophomoric re-tread lib prog talking points and memes that leave us in stitches.
But eventually, your trust fund will empty and you will have to grow up and climb out of your childish ideological snuggie.
#118956 May 14, 2013
So you're a religious BIGOT to boot.
Interesting. So much anger in you ...

Intellectual thief and fraud.
Stolen from http://progressivevoices.com/lol-of-week-dest... and posted here as if your intellectual work.
The standard of academic integrity not too high there at Marin Community College, joe?
#118958 May 14, 2013
Now joe is revealed as conspiracy wingnut as well. The Clinton VRWC is BACK!!
It's been a big day getting insiights into the murky channels of joe's angry, closed, and clearly superior (hehe...) little mind.
"It is being reported ??" Well, do go on, joe. Sources. Attribution. Links.
We're sure you got 'em and they're all authoritative and credible ... so let's have 'em out here don't hide your light under a basket - it's dim enough as it is.
While you're at it, you can reconcile those "reports" with figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics showing IRS employees donated over two-and-a-half times more to Barack Obama than to Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Aburd. Barred by the Constitution.
Of course, you wouldn't know about that.
