A recently proposed Pennsylvania House bill that would have limited benefits to low-income women who give birth while on welfare – unless they can prove their pregnancy is a result of rape – has been withdrawn.
According to The Daily Beast, the bill was quickly met with backlash after it was reported Thursday

The Benghazi disaster is an eery replay of the hostage rescue in Iran. Both episodes are an example of the epic failure of the president.
Absolutely shameful all the way through. I hope his cover up blows up in his face, just like Nixon.

As it unravels, the story becomes more and more shocking. The CIA requested three times to go in with a rescue mission and were denied all three times. Military support was less than hour away. Lasers were pointed at the mortars for our military to take them out. Obama and his cabinet went into an emergency meeting about an hour after the start of the attack. They watched the live feed and did nothing.
The father of the seal says he despises the lying from the white house, but forgives them all. I would be pissed. Community organizers are not cut out for this type of morale courage. All Obama was thinking about was the election, pathetic.
It's just plain unbelievable.

The cheerleaders have apparently been on an extended break for the past month and a half.

They picked this guy and are now hiding under their desks so he might just get reelected by their deafening silence this time.

As far as "impeachable offenses" go, Benghazi might very well be the best (worst?) example in American history.

Lily are you losing it? How would you take it if someone said black men are deviant criminals that hate all white people and are bloodsuckers on society? You may think your hatred is justified but it isn't.
Apples and oranges. The Rapepublican party has brought forth over 1000 anti womens reproductive rights legislation. You have Senate candidates now who are advocating for rape, saying it's Gods will?
You have Presidential candidate who has no balls to tell these rapists to stop it. What does that mean that Mitt Romney is endorsing Mourdock? It means that he has absolutely no regard for women, just poopoos it away as if it's nothing.
Every single republican man and woman and members of elected office should be in complete outrage and denounce this sick talk.
But all we hear is crickets.

McCain Dumps On Powell Again: He ‘Got Us Into Iraq’

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/10/mcc...

Is a Republican, who voted for it, finally admitting that the Iraq war was a bad thing?

Or is he trying to say Powell lied?

Take your pick on that one. All works out the same.

The CIA and military are leaking like a sieve. The MSM will have trouble avoiding the story.

The Kenyan knew the attack was under way and went to bed. The next day he flew to Las Vegas to party with Beyonce and Jay Z.

Colin Powell’s New Book: Bush Administration Never Debated Iraq War

In the book, Powell also describes how he felt about the Bush White House’s original WMD case.“It was a disaster. It was incoherent,” he writes.“I learned later that Scooter Libby, Vice President Cheney’s chief of staff, had authored the unusable presentation, not the NSC staff. And several years after that, I learned from Dr. Rice that the idea of using Libby had come from the Vice President, who had persuaded the President to have Libby, a lawyer, write the ‘case’ as a lawyer’s brief and not as an intelligence assessment.”

Powell also reveals that he fought Dick Cheney‘s attempts to add “assertions that had been rejected months earlier to links between Iraq and 9/11 and other terrorist acts.”

More than just a cover-up -unspeakable incompetency as denied Annex CIA operatives request to assist consulate 3 times. They let people die playing to end their policy.

I say let's answer Obama's request for re-election with -Denied. Denied. Denied.

Republicans determined to get Mourdock elected, God's rape babies and all

Mitch McConnell has raised big bucks for him. Chris Christie, John McCain and scores of Senate Republicans have lent Mourdock help on the stump — and they don’t appear to be abandoning him despite his controversial remarks that God intended that pregnancies resulting from rape should happen.
All told, the National Republican Senatorial Committee — which backed Lugar in the GOP primary— will spend $5 million boosting Mourdock. Crossroads GPS, the secret-money group co-founded by Karl Rove, is expected to drop an additional $4 million into the race.
Even before he made headlines with the remarks and non-apology, Mourdock was locked in a tight race with conservative Democrat Joe Donnelly, and with Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comments having made the Missouri Senate seat that much harder to win, Republicans really need Indiana. So even though his unfortunate-for-them phrasing of what's in the Republican platform has created some uncomfortable publicity, Mourdock's their guy and they're proud to stand with him.
