O rly?

"The new documents disprove claims by Obama spokesman Jay Carney, Hillary Clinton, and others that the White House and State Department had virtually nothing to do with rewriting the talking points. Carney maintained that officials from State and the White House were responsible for a “single adjustment” to the language. Clinton insisted that the intelligence community was the “principal decider” of what would be said. But the emails make clear that top White House and State officials played key roles in reshaping the CIA’s initial draft."

That's traction, joe.

"You were talking earlier about kind of dismissing the Benghazi issue as one that's just political and the president recently said it's a sideshow," said Woodward. "But if you read through all these e-mails, you see that everyone in the government is saying,'Oh, let's not tell the public that terrorists were involved, people connected to al Qaeda. Let's not tell the public that there were warnings.' I hate to show, this is one of the documents with the editing that one of the people in the state department said,'Oh, let's not let these things out.' And I have to go back 40 years to Watergate when Nixon put out his edited transcripts to the conversations, and he personally went through them and said,'Oh, let's not tell this, let's not show this.' I would not dismiss Benghazi. It's a very serious issue. As people keep saying, four people were killed. You look at the hydraulic pressure that was in the system to not tell the truth, and, you know, we use this term and the government uses this term, talking points. Talking points, as we know, are like legal briefs. They're an argument on one side. What we need to get rid of talking point and they need to put out statements or papers that are truth documents. Okay, this is all we know."

WOODWARD. That's Holy High Traction in DC, joe.

Unless it's money coming from your lib prog billionaire fellow ideologues like Soros, Hollywood fat cats, and Wall Street fat cats - then it's perfectly "good" money, right, joe?

See - your problem is you're standing there shouting this lib prog claptrap standing so deep in the now-obvious DNC/Obama bucket of political corruption and shyte you can't even tell how bad you stink of it anymore.

Keep flinging that poo on yourself defending the indefensible - we love it.

You don't have any credibility or shame left do you, little teddy boy? You criticize the objectivity of ones sources (not the content) and then think you can come trotting your tripe from the Weekly Standard as if it's the holy grail of objective reporting.

The weekly standard, that's Rupert Murdoch, jerk. Point to something Media Matters has printed you don't think is true.'Cause I will bring more and more of the Rethug tea-baggger lies and you will have to continue blowing arteries, name calling and generally making a fool of yourself (except to your antiquated teabag buddies).

You're a joke; like one of those Gutfeld and Miller jokes, you know, mean, vicious, uninformed, retrograde and worse, not funny.(Remember, GOP has No Sense of Humor, no funny comedians and no humorists. Unless you count Ted Nugent, of course.

When you actually post some substantive content other than your usual vacuous "MediaMatters reports (... some completely baseless and unsupported propaganda meme cut-n-pasted from HuffPoop or similar lib prog blogroll with no link to original source facts or supporting evidence whatsoever...), I'll be glad to address the "content."

You're pretty much just a pig. And as such are a really are a great spokesman for the right. Right?

More partisan horsecrap. These are fundamentals EVERY SERIOUS, INFORMED, AND PATRIOTIC AMERICAN values and places above ALL ELSE - ESPECIALLY PARTISAN POLITICAL IDIOLOGY.

You by your own choice are standing with the treasonous scum defending instead of condemning these obviously outrageous abuses, and acting out all self-righteously for doing so to boot, with the lamest argument there is - "but Mom! Jimmie did it too!"

It's embarrassing! How do you possibly expect to be taken seriously?

Your mob is currently in the crosshairs for one simple reason, joe - THEY'RE IN POWER, they've abused it egregiously and more than likely illegally, they're incompetent, and THEY'VE DAMAGED AMERICANS AND THE NATION by their actions. And like all liars eventually do, now they've been caught at it, in the broad light of day.

ALL SERIOUS AND PATRIOTIC AMERICANS want to see full and unsparing accountability and consequences arrived at applied in teach of these cases to keep the unfit and corrupt far away from power and to bury their notions they're smarter than everybody else and can get away with lying for political purposes - and so should you, if for no other reason than to prevent the same behaviors in Washington by all those Righty bętes noires you so fear and loathe and who keep you intellectually paralyzed in a constant state of hate, when they are back in power.

Because that worm will turn, joe. They will be back in power at some point.

Grow up and deal with it - like an objective and serious adult.

Jeez, you are such a twit. Don't hold your breath waiting for Republicans to return to power. They had their chance and thanks to their corruption and lying hundreds of thousands of innocent people are dead. If Benghazi is such a scandal, what in the hell do call 9/11? How many progressive organizations were hit by Bush's IRS? An IRS populated by Bush appointees to this day. You guys all live and breathe and will be hoist on your own hypocrisy.

You really think the majority of the American public are as insane and paranoid and duplicitous as you fascists? Nah, I don't think so.

The right is diminishing; by death, by saturation from the nutty tea party and the nutty religious fundamentalists.

So you can now continue "judging" posts with all the little juvenile glee you can muster (perhaps with Erika to accompany you, no doubt).

Dude, I just feel horrible watching you come unglued.

Your boys are kinda reading the leaves about your precious "scandals" aren't they? No change in Obama's approval, uncovering of Republican manipulation and fabrication of e-mails over Benghazi, IRS actually finding merit in tagging right wing mis-use of non-profit status.

They might have to rein in their disgusting attack a little as the spotlight broadens. If Republicans had a real case(s) they wouldn't need to be shouting and salivating. Besides most Americans rally when we are attacked, only the New Republican Party attacks other Americans. The people don't like that so much.

In a letter to members of Congress, which was obtained by NBC News, Heritage Action for America, the lobbying arm of the Heritage Foundation (which recently found itself in hot water over the racial IQ theories of the co-author of their widely panned immigration reform study, Jason Richwine, who resigned from the think tank last Friday), urged Republicans on Capitol Hill not to govern, and instead, to focus on the would-be “scandals” plaguing the Obama administration.

In light of the white hot media spotlight on the administration, and to deflect attention from the many policy areas where Republicans don’t quite get along, the letter urges:“it is incumbent upon the House of Representatives to conduct oversight hearings on those actions, but it would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama administration to the ideological differences within the House Republican Conference.”

“To that end, we urge you to avoid bringing any legislation to the House Floor that could expose or highlight major schisms within the conference."

Don't you just admire the hell out those true blue American "patriots"?

It's embarrassing! How do you possibly expect to be taken seriously?
