Palin resigned to escape ethics violations. This was a special election in SC; look how that worked out for Scott Brown. Big deal.
Is it just me, or is this no surprize dude driving everyone insane. Will one of these Republicans please tell this dumass enough is enough! I'm tired of reading the same shit all day everyday. I mean for real, it's not funny anymore, not that it ever was, but damn. I'm serious Lily. This dude is driving me insane. It's like his warped mind is stuck on the same 5 cliche phrases, & he just can't get right like dude from the movie "Life."

So on the night of Benghazi, Clinton had a call with Hicks at 2am and was put fully in the picture of who was responsible for attacking the Embassy. On top of this the murdered ambassadors body was taken to the a hospital also controlled by these very same terrorists.

Looks like a spontaneous attack to me.

IMPEACH!

Boehner? HA! He's singing "No Boehner No Cry", he can't even get the votes from his own caucus.
Republicans appreciate having Nancy Pelosi as a punching bag.

True. I think the presidency is no longer within reach for the Republican party. They would have to take a hard turn towards the center and the opposite appears to be true.

Although some are defecting towards immigration reform in attempts to win Hispanic voters. They can always go back to hating them after the election.

The Senate is scheduled to vote Wednesday afternoon on an amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) that may add fuel to a conspiracy theory about President Obama’s gun control efforts that even the National Rifle Association has said is based on fiction.
http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/05/co...
The Coburn amendment, attached to unrelated water resources legislation and set for a 60-vote threshold, would require federal agencies (excluding the Pentagon) to report the number of rounds of ammunition they purchase. It would also require them to report firearms purchased as well as those that are stolen, lost or unaccounted for.

Sounds very reasonable, a form of gun control.

Call back when Obama is willing to make real spending cuts in exchange for the tax increases he already received.
Meet the President halfway on cuts to the military(we can start with cutting Homeland Security's budget approved by Republicans for buying up all the damn ammo at home and throw in cuts for tanks and missiles that the Pentagon doesn't even want) Then, we might not have to cut as much from welfare benefits that help our most needy poor and senior citizens and keep funding for education and science that has proved to be prime movers on upward social mobility and economic progress.

Cut all federal spending, across the board.

Eliminate all DHS spending on ammunition.

National defense is Constitutionally mandated; welfare and education are not.
