Remember how dumb you looked when the fast and furious was declared yet another right wing hysteria?
I do.
Lets put this into perspective.

President Nixon wanted to learn what his opponent's campaign strategy was. He or someone on his staff directed a team to break into a Democrat campaign office in Watergate in an attempt to find the information.

They did. Nixon won his campaign for reelection.

This "crime" was uncovered. The subsequent investigation revealed that the White House was implicit in this robery. The White House tried to cover its involvement up and actually lied to investigators.

President Nixon was impeached and for the "good of the country" resigned his office rather than dragging this country through a formal impeachment proceeding.

In contrast to "Fast and Furious" the justice department actions resulted in the death of a United States law enforcement officer. An American citizen died as a result of Fast and Furious. It is unknown exactly how many other American and Mexican citizens have died directly as a result of Justice Department actions. With "Fast and Furious" the Obama administration has done exactly the very same thing as did the Nixon administration did with Watergate. The difference is... Americans have lost their life in "Fast and Furious" while nobody died because the Nixon crew broke into a Democrat office.

American diplomats have been killed in Libya by terrorists. According to the Obama administration teoorists have been defeated because Bin Laden is dead. There is no was on terror in the Obama administration because terrorists do not exist. The Obama adminsitration made choices that led to these deaths in Libya and has been lieing about it from the day it happened. This surely sounds like a cover up to me. Vice President Biden himself declared on national televsision that nobody in the administration knew anything about the events in Libya.(This was days after sworn testimony in congress stated otherwise)

Given the similartities and the results of all three of these incidents why should Congress refrain from initiating impeachment proceedings against Obama?

Where do you get this is all right wing hysteria? Obama is breaking United States Law. Is that also right wing "hysteria?"

The Ambassador died from smoke inhalation. He was rushed to a local hospital via private automobile where he died some 6 hours later. He was never raped.

WASHINGTON -- For the first time publicly, the Mitt Romney campaign was asked Sunday to defend the six studies it routinely cites as supportive of the candidate's tax plan.

The studies have been called into question for weeks now, as only one or two of them are actually academic. The rest are blog posts and op-eds, some written by the same author, others by conservative sources. One study cited was actually paid for by the campaign itself, though the campaign has since replaced that study with another.

Gillespie: These are very credible sources, and, you know...

Wallace: One of them is from a guy who is – is a blog from a guy who was a top advisor to George W. Bush. So these are hardly nonpartisan studies.

Gillespie: Look, Chris I think if you look at Harvard and AEI [American Enterprise Institute] and other studies are very credible sources for economic analysis

Wallace: You wouldn't say that AEI is a conservative think tank?

Gillespie: I would say it is a right-leaning think tank. That doesn't make it not credible.

Wallace: It doesn't make it nonpartisan.

Gillespie: It does make it nonpartisan. It's not a partisan organization, I can tell you, there are many instances where there have been things AEI came out with and said, I didn't find it to be necessarily to be helpful to the Republican Party.

Wallace: Would you say Brookings Institution is nonpartisan?

Gillespie: I would say the Brookings Institution is left leaning and nonpartisan.

More problematic for Romney is that a number of them reached conclusions that he would find uncomfortable. Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, for instance, said that Romney's tax plan could work mathematically if it eliminated deductions and exemptions for individuals making over $100,000 per year.

A Princeton study put that figure at $200,000, though the author told Bloomberg News that the figure may need to be brought down to pay for Romney's 20 percent across-the-board reduction in tax rates.

Chris Wallace better watch the tough questioning he is asking the GOPers, he might find himself working for MSNBC or even worse CNN.

Our local paper published a story this morning stating that the members of the Navy Seals that President Obama ordered to kill Bin Laden were trained in Hertford, N.C. I once lived in Hertford, N.C. and have seen the training facility. I paid taxes in Hertford, N.C., thus helping finance the infrastructure for the training facility. That means I played a part in killing Bin Laden. Don't bother thanking me. My reward is the knowledge that I helped President Obama end terrorism in America so the rest of you can sleep at night.
BTW, I now pay taxes in Virginia Beach, Va., home of Little Creek Amphibious Base where Seal Team 6 is stationed. Along with President Obama, I have done more to kill Bin Laden and rid the world of terrorists than most of you.

Anyone with a brain.

No big conspiracy.

Republicans & Issa wasted millions of dollars. No link to Obama & the White House.

After making political hay from the death of a border agent, Gunner will now use the death of an ambassador to do it again.

Just how pathetic is Gunner? So Pathetic Gunner complains about people on the government dole while cashing his government checks.

Gun Nut, v.: A person of lower than average intelligence who generally owns several firearms and centers his entire life around them. They usually suffer from extreme paranoia. A member of the subculture of gun owners who believe the 2nd Amendment is the most important right in the Constitution. They incorrectly believe that the 2nd Amendment gives anybody the right to own a firearm. Male gun nuts often consider their firearm an extension of their small penis. Female gun nuts are usually obese and often display tattoos on their neck.
Very funny.

I am higher than average intelligence.
I own several firearms.
My life does not rotate around my firearms. They are there for me when and if I have to use them, and when I take them to the range to practice.
I have never been paranoid about anything.
The second amendment is NOT the most important right in the Constitution. It stands even with the right to free speach, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech among others.

I guess these means I am NOT a gun nut. It makes me a gun owner.
