Note to right wing babblers:

Funny how everyone of you think, say and act the same, dontcha think? Shouldn't you disagree about one or two things? I mean you're all such "independent" thinkers, right?

Appearing on Tuesday night’s episode of “The O’Reilly Factor,” author and sports journalist Bernie Goldberg agreed with host Bill O’Reilly on a critique of Republican opinion-makers in the media, saying he felt like President Barack Obama could cure cancer and they would still hate him.

Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails, CBS News Report Claims

One day after The White House released 100 pages of Benghazi emails, a report has surfaced alleging that Republicans released a set with altered text.

CBS News reported Thursday that leaked versions sent out by the GOP last Friday had visible differences than Wednesday's official batch. Two correspondences that were singled out in the report came from National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes and State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

Republican hypocrisy, again:

Republicans Split On Media Shield Law Amid Outrage Over Associated Press Records Seizure

Amid the outrage over the Justice Department probe, few Republicans have indicated they are committed to reporter protection. Many avoided taking a position on media shield legislation, saying they would have to see it first. They either reiterated their stance that the administration's actions were inappropriate, or deflected the issue entirely. Democrats in both the House and Senate have shown broad support for similar shield law measures in the past.

Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails

1- Maybe it's time for an investigation of the Republican party.

and

2- The solution to the problems (jobs) that we're facing is to vote out the Republicans and tea baggers in Congress.

You have proof of that?

YOu say we need a solution to jobs, that means you think the current administration is not doing anything about it.

Obama's IRS has had almost 5 years to audit/harass/incarcerate everyone right of center... yet there are still right-wingers out there! Obama & his IRS have failed miserably!

I'm calling for an investigation as to why the IRS hasn't destroyed everyone that didn't vote for Obama! No justice, no peace!

Read the newspaper.

The Republicans control the House and have blocked all attempts to create a jobs bill.

The IRS is the only agency (which it shouldn't be) that is trying to determine if tax-exempt groups are following the law. All this was created by the Citizens United determination of the SCOTUS. That finding was insane.

Sorry, nac, but your refusal to inform your self makes discussion impossible.

U.S. Commissioners of Internal Revenue

Mark W. Everson - 2003-2007 - Appointmented by George W. Bush

Douglas H. Shulman - 2008–2012 - Appointmented by George W. Bush

Steven Miller Nov 2012-May 2013 - Appointed Acting Commissioner by Barack Obama

How was Obama running the IRS for 5 years with Republican commissioners?

Sheesh.

Spin, spin, spin, leetle lib prog propagandist ...

Targeting only the Obama & DNC's ideological enemies, joe, while freely handing out 504 (c) 1 certs to lib prog friends like candy the whole time, with no questions asked.

Read the papers, joe:

You don't even have your own side backing your ridiculously lame attempts at defending this outrage:

"Senior Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, who recently slapped Obamacare as a "train wreck," believes that the IRS scandal is just beginning and that "a lot more" damaging information will be revealed, likely at congressional hearings."

"I have a hunch that a lot more is going to come out, frankly," Baucus, whose pending retirement seems to have freed him up to speak bluntly, told Bloomberg's "Capitol Gains" TV show.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/democrat-baucus...

"We are in the midst of the worst Washington scandal since Watergate. The reputation of the Obama White House has, among conservatives, gone from sketchy to sinister, and, among liberals, from unsatisfying to dangerous. No one likes what they're seeing. The Justice Department assault on the Associated Press and the ugly politicization of the Internal Revenue Service have left the administration's credibility deeply, probably irretrievably damaged. They don't look jerky now, they look dirty. The patina of high-mindedness the president enjoyed is gone."

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

"Mr. Obama didn't need to pick up the phone. All he needed to do was exactly what he did do, in full view, for three years: Publicly suggest that conservative political groups were engaged in nefarious deeds; publicly call out by name political opponents whom he'd like to see harassed; and publicly have his party pressure the IRS to take action."

"Mr. Obama now professes shock and outrage that bureaucrats at the IRS did exactly what the president of the United States said was the right and honorable thing to do. "

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788...

Citizens United was a perfectly correct pro-free-speech. And now it's the law of the land, binding Soros and Media Matters and Hollywood/Eastern elite limo lib fat cat money right along with any other corporate free speech. Grow up and get over it.

Oh, little teddy's having a hissy fit. Your big "scandals" are going nowhere and you know it, dlckhead.

You guys will jump the shark in your glee and hypocrisy and everybody but tea-baggers and you will keep losing votes.

The right can't get traction on Benghazi with anybody but tea-baggers and teddy.

They don't want to peruse the AP story because most Rethugs like the idea of going after the press.(Personally I think that's the only story worth a hoot).

And when the whole IRS story unfolds (just beginning) it's gonna start pointing at Rethugs. And I mean aside from doctored versions of released evidence (isn't that a crime?). Oh, too bad. We haven't even gotten to the part where hear how those fake 501c's were doing politics rather than social work.

Citizen United was shilt and everyone with half a brain knows it except thugs like teddy. Money is what corrupts politics and adding more corrupts it more.

Why Allen West is a great Republican and will make a great fox news flunky:

1. West Is A Former Republican Official

2. West Compares His Opponents To Nazis

3. West Claimed Dozens Of Democrats Are Communists

4. West Has A History Of Anti-Islam Comments

5. West Invokes Slavery To Bash Democrats And Their "Plantation"

6. West Lobs Sexist Attacks

7. West Pushes Anti-Immigrant Hysteria

8. West Assaulted A Detainee

In 2003 West admitted, as Media Matters noted, that he "threatened to kill" an Iraqi detainee in his custody; watched "four of his soldiers from the 220th Field Artillery Battalion beat the detainee on the head and body"; and, according to military prosecutors, he "followed up on that threat" to kill the detainee by shooting near his head. He was eventually "stripped of his command after pleading guilty to assaulting an Iraqi detainee during interrogation."
