The truth will come out many years from now. Probably after most of us here are dead and gone. Hopefully, maybe not.

The thing about a president's legacy, it usually doesn't catch up with them and stick until enough time has passed.

However, my prediction is that GW Bush's legacy will far outshine that of Barack Obama's 20 years from now. It almost does already.

Like Carter, Obama can run from his future legacy, but he can't hide. The now hidden truths will eventually see the light of day.

Benghazi (I): Does Fox News have a scoop with its cloaked Special Operator?
Not from what I am hearing ‘round the barnyard. Here's an example, from retired Special Forces Col. David Maxwell, on the record and everything, about Fox's ‘scoop' saying SF could have responded to Benghazi in time:
Whistle blower my a**. If this guy is a real special operator (and I have my doubts) I wonder if he realizes what an embarrassment he is to the community. What he offers is pure speculation and not based on any real facts as I have heard and appears to be coming from his fourth point of contact. He comes across as just another conspiracy theorist who is taking Fox News for a ride.

Benghazi Hearings to start Wednesday, including questions[???] about how the Republican FOX Ministry of Propaganda (wanna be MSM media) invented coverage of the event.
Fox is dedicating a good ten minutes or longer per day per daytime comment on the Benghazi CIA operation.

Scooter Libbey got prison time (commuted) and was disbarred for outing an agent__in the case of Benghazi we find American elected and news persons outing an entire CIA operation that was likely illegal from the get go, whenever the fk that was.

BushCo began normalizing diplomatic relations with Libya in 2004-2005 how long after that the CIA moved in is anyone's guess. And hearings or no we'll never learn what really happened or why.

FOX believes that it's viewers are nitwits.

George Bush's legacy
The frat boy ships out
Few people will mourn the departure of the 43rd president

HE LEAVES the White House as one of the least popular and most divisive presidents in American history. At home, his approval rating has been stuck in the 20s for months; abroad, George Bush has presided over the most catastrophic collapse in America's reputation since the second world war. The American economy is in deep recession, brought on by a crisis that forced Mr Bush to preside over huge and unpopular bail-outs.

America is embroiled in two wars, one of which Mr Bush launched against the tide of world opinion. The Bush family name, once among the most illustrious in American political life, is now so tainted that Jeb, George's younger brother, recently decided not to run for the Senate from Florida. A Bush relative describes family gatherings as “funeral wakes”.

Fake study says Fox News viewers have low IQs

A study that claimed Fox News viewers were significantly less intelligent than average Americans is a hoax, Michael Giltz writes. The “study” was ordered up by a group of conservatives who hope to move the Republican party in a more moderate direction, lead hoaxer “P. Nichols” told Giltz.

Making people embarrassed to say they watched FOX News (or better yet not watch FOX News at all) might help that goal. So the 5000 people who took part in the study were chosen by Nichols and non-scientists, essentially selected to guarantee the results they were looking for.

You too, Carol. Have a cigarette. Put another nail in your coffin.
I support any vice as long as it really pisses off the PC police.

But you go ahead and take that toke, belt down another shot and snort it up.

Just don't get behind the wheel of a car. But the PC have no problem with that. Smokers are a much bigger danger on the road.

I think it'd be great if everyone grabbed a cigarette whether they smoked or not and lit up anywhere and everywhere the PC police have forbidden it? A rebellion is in order.

Grab the biggest soft drink container you can find too.

The Newsy Nonsense Of Fox News' Benghazi "Insider"

Five Problems With Fox's Latest Attempt To Turn Benghazi Into Watergate

Foreign policy experts are already going on record challenging the accuracy, expertise, and credentials of Fox's anonymous source. His own words do little to boost his credibility, given that he's purporting to "contradict" the official record with facts that are already part of the official record and claims that have already been debunked. But for Fox, getting the Benghazi story right is less important than getting the rest of the media to cover it the same way they do -- as the second coming of Watergate.

That's the biggest puzzle. How he got elected twice.
But we should celebrate because unemployment dropped a notch from 7.6% to 7.5%.
It's sort of like waiting on pins and needles from month to month to find out if you're going to live after waiting 4-1/2 years already.
But, as you know, Obamacare came first and it now looms like a dark ominous cloud. Are you ready? Because 42% of Americans have no clue it's even the law of the land.
I think I'll wait to celebrate until after October 1 - and maybe until the end of the year after the reality sets in.
Hope I'm wrong and it's a big smash for both employers and employees...and tax payers too, of course.
Carol, you are lying again.

The stimulus bill was passed & signed into law almost a year before Obamacare.

Are you just stupid?
