It's about to come to a head one way or the other.
Boehner is demanding emails and all unclassified correspondance from the WH regarding Benghazi and its aftermath.
If you remember the events leading up to Watergate, it's very similar to the Nixon's tapes. His refusal to turn them over is what ultimately led to his resignation.
So far, the WH has refused to turn over this information. If there's nothing to hide, they will and we'll see where the story goes from there. If there is something to hide and the information isn't forthcoming, this story will go in a completely new direction.
Brush up on your Watergate history before you start making inane comparisons to the Benghazi hearings(which are not impeachment hearings ,but a fact-finding inquiry with the President 's complete cooperation.)(Transcripts of telephone conversations released show President Richard M. Nixon jokingly threatened to drop a nuclear bomb on Capitol Hill in March 1974 as Congress was moving to impeach him over the Watergate scandal.)Check this out: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics...

Yes , by all means, be kind to that 'poor old woman' because in all probability she'll be your new American President in 2016. And be a great one too!

Watergate took two and one-half years to unfold.

Benghazi-gate may or may not take as long, but Obama's continued refusal to tell the truth is a mistake.

What is the purpose of this useless agency, which assumes that the consumer is too stupid to manage his own financial affairs and passes regulations that ultimately cost the consumer money?
You're just sore because the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau levels the playing field and gives the little guy a fighting chance against the big banks and mortgage lenders and helps , individual consumers, small banks, credit unions, and ' anyone trying to offer an honest product in an honest market,' but maybe you like thieves and crooks better?

Technically correct, but the parties that were at risk in a failure of AIG were primarily foreign banks.

US taxpayers were actually bailing out Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank (along with Goldman Sachs).

The Republican subterfuge won't last out the week, the televised media will move on to fabricating new memes to entertain the faithful TV viewer. As Faye Dunaway famously says in "Network", "No wire hangers,ever!"

Wait and see if Obama is willing to give up power and all other Democrats just step aside. That was the thought in 2008, and an unknown like Obama stepped in and mopped the floor with Hillary.

The Democrat nominee in 2016 will be an Obama surrogate.

Just assumed she was a woman, based on her whiny tone.

Probably another New York refugee, like lily or the late Jean. Or maybe even Jean herself.

How does it do that?

Perhaps for the stupid, but they don't have money anyway.

And why would any intelligent investor want to trust his investments to the "little guy"?

I have it on good authority Jean is still wedged in a doorway at a Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs restroom in Hackensack.
