Barack Obama, our next President

Didn't get any indication from Lincoln's post he believed it was satire. Did you?

Gates and Feinstein.
Really on top of breaking news.
No wonder the mainstream media has lost all credibility.
Why not interview Susan Rice again and swallow all her lies, like Monica on her knees for Bill?
Did you see the interview with John McCain? That's more than relevant. "The Benghazi issue was reignited last week after House Republicans held a hearing on the attacks and ABC News published a story showing that administration talking points offered immediately after the attacks went through several rounds of editing by officials, including in the State Department.

While many Republicans have charged political interference, others -- including longtime State Department reporter Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post -- have noted that it seems more like a case of bureaucratic in-fighting. " So, Obama's edited-out talking points were not a 'scandal', but a bureaucratic in-fighting snafu. It wasn't catastrophe, just a very , small mess.

What's scary is relying on one source like FOX. Right wing lemmings are being led off the cliff.
What's scary is Fox reporting a suspected coverup just based on the facts that were known for months which John Galt correctly said, "didn't pass the smell test" and only now, eight months later, are the liberal press starting to wake up from their Obama-induced semi-coma.

Then again, this isn't the first time Fox has broken a major news story and the liberal media has to run to catch up months later.

The video story never passed the smell test, from Day One.
Hillary was smart enough not to parrot the party line on the talk shows, so Obama marched out the White House maid, Susan Rice.
Too bad Rice isn't Secretary of State, to make a bigger target.
Too bad that you did not hear the Robert Gates interview. President George W Bush's Secretary of State would be calling your criticisms of Obama, Clinton ,and Rice as 'cartoonish' as Darrell Issa and Jim Inhofe's . In other words, you can be the third stooge. Want to try for Curly? Check this out: http://www.politicususa.com/gates-destroys-ca...

This is according to you. The few times I misspoke about an historical fact or a number, I immediately corrected it.
Don't recall you ever apologizing or correcting any of your misstatements after falsely accusing someone of lying.
There's plenty of proof of this too over the past four years.
The few hundred times would be more accurate and you were corrected by many including right wing stooges such as Galt.

During one of your more memorable math errors you mistakenly cited a California withholding tax increase and then defended your error for days while being laughed at by one and all.

Just face it gal, you're a stooge and one with a chip on her shoulder.

Everett Dirksen played a much bigger role than Lyndon Johnson in getting the CRA of 1964 passed in Congress behind the scenes. All Johnson had to do was sign it and take all the credit for it. Seems to be a pattern among democrats.

After Dirksen's tireless efforts, "somewhat anticlimactically, the bill was signed into law by President Johnson on July 2, 1964." And then he took all the credit.

Indeed.

After U.S. Special Forces' tireless efforts in hunting bin Laden for five long years, somewhat anticlimatically, Obama announced bin Laden was dead. And then took all the credit.

Like I said, it's a pattern.

I think it was a much bigger deal in your mind than anyone else's.

Should I go back and remind everyone of some of your posts of which I had to prove you wrong on numerous occasions? And of which you were ridiculed by more posters than anything I may have posted in error?

Let's please not go there, Realtime. It's not in my nature to embarrass you on purpose. You do a good job doing that yourself anyway.

Z STREET brings this case because, through its corporate counsel, Z STREET was informed explicitly by an IRS Agent on July 19, 2010, that approval of Z STREET’s application for tax-exempt status has been at least delayed, and may be denied, because of a special IRS policy in place regarding organizations in any way connected with Israel, and further that the applications of many such Israel-related organizations have been assigned to “a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization's activities contradict the Administration's public policies.” These statements by an IRS official that the IRS maintains special policies (hereinafter the “Israel Special Policy”) governing applications for tax-exempt status by organizations which deal with Israel, and which requires particularly intense scrutiny of such applications and an enhanced risk of denial if made by organizations which espouse or support positions inconsistent with the Obama administration’s Israel policies, constitute an explicit admission of the crudest form of viewpoint discrimination, and one which is both totally un-American and flatly unconstitutional under the First Amendment.

Okay, this is what I don't understand.
The Libyans fighting for Gadaffi's overthrow were willing to die for that cause. If they lost that fight, Gadaffi would have not only killed all of them but their families.
There were 48 casualities in the recent strike on Libya...only some of which were the same civilians who would have been willing to die or would have been killed anyway in the fight.
If something is worth dying for - the end result to be exact - why is the Arab League so shocked and dismayed that some were killed as casualities in making it easier for them to achieve the end result?
I really don't get that kind of reasoning. Did they think this was going to be a nice and tidy overthrow?

Liar, liar, your panties are on fire. You reversed history. It was President Lyndon B. johnson who gave all the credit to Everett Dirksen for getting the 1964 Civil Rights Bill passed. Johnson could have embarrassed Dirksen in public by pointing out that passage of the bill that so many believed was self-evidently the right thing to do was dragged out another long eight months of filibusters and debate before a watered down version of the original bill was voted on. Johnson had to go back up to urge Congress to pass the Voting Rights and Housing Rights Acts ( two fundamental individual rights(equality and suffrage) for all Americans left out of Dirksen's version of the 1964 Civil Rights Act)

Why? Because John McCain is backing Obama's immigration reform bill and ending the failed border war on drugs-- he supports the more logical and effective shifting to rehab/education rather than punishment for non-violent drug offenders. Obama won't take your guns, but you'll have to go to drug rehab to clean yourself up . Mom will be happy for you even if you won't be at first.
