Clearly the goal of Republicans/Rigthwingers is not to get to any 'truth', it's to try and embarrass and disparage this president.

They make me sick.

Rightwing Rasmussen reports has Obama's approval back on the upswing, back up to 49% according to them.
You just can't keep a good man down.
According to a recent CNN poll, 59% approve of the GOP's handling of these scandals.

59% say that the U.S government could have prevented the attack in Benghazi. 59% also say the GOP reacted appropriately.

It's the same story on the IRS controversy. 54% say the GOP in Congress has not overplayed its hand.

The more Obama is implicated in the IRS coverup, the more his numbers will drop.

Only the clueless who voted for him both times and who have no idea what's going on will continue to think the emperor is still wearing clothes. And skip to the bank with their welfare checks.

How stupid is the Tea Party?

Thev file for a tax exempt status reserved for non profit organization that advocate for social issues. Their main concern cannot be politics.

So these dumbasses in the Tea Party apply for this status using the name "Tea Party ThIs" or Tea Party that"

They announce their political agenda & then cry about it when the IRS sees this & knows they may not qualify.

Then the dumbasses whine to Congress & the Whiner-in -chief Issa jumps in to start yet another investigation.

This is just how stupid the Tea Party is.

“Come Home America!”

Aunt Bettie Lou , I suggest that if you are going to cite the 9/11 Commission Report then you ought to better quote the people who were responsible for preparing the report, Lee Hamilton and Thomas McKean(A Republican and Democrat)

<quoted text> Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton did not hold your naive notion of Bush43 'great assistance'. "Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton must have been waiting all holiday long to launch this grenade against the Administration just as Congress returns and the torture tape inquiry heats up.
MORE than five years ago, Congress and President Bush created the 9/11 commission.
[snip]
The commission’s mandate was sweeping and it explicitly included the intelligence agencies. But the recent revelations that the C.I.A. destroyed videotaped interrogations of Qaeda operatives leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot. Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation." ..."Of note, Kean and Hamilton clearly include the White House among those who obstructed the Commission’s work.
There could have been absolutely no doubt in the mind of anyone at the C.I.A.— or the White House — of the commission’s interest in any and all information related to Qaeda detainees involved in the 9/11 plot. Yet no one in the administration ever told the commission of the existence of videotapes of detainee interrogations." Check this out: http://emptywheel.firedoglake.com/2008/01/02/...

<quoted text> Clinton pursued, arrested , convicted, and imprisoned for life in U S SuperMax jails all of the key terrorists in the 1993 WTC garage bombing within 2 years of the attack and did not , like Bush43 did, launch a 12 year counterinsurgency war in Iraq and Afghanistan that they never won.
why did O'bama lose the war in Iraq? and now you are telling us that he is going to lose the war in Afghanistan? why is he still there if he plans on losing?

Lerner will be called back again.
But please provide proof of your ridiculous claim she was "forced" to do anything.
Lerner became the star of her own production. Issa and Boehner just let her bomb on her own.
She makes herself look foolish by being called back again.
Is there no limit to the liberals' depths of denial?
So she's calling herself back?

The Fifth Amendment is not selective.
Lois Lerner's performance is like Jody Arias testifying that she didn't kill her boyfriend and then pleading the Fifth when cross-examination started.
Her $1,000 per hour lawyer must have been sleeping.
But something like the 2nd is?

Can't be son. That's 1930's German guy hated commies, socialists, democrats, etc....

Which is only going to heighten the already growing suspicion of his involvement even more.
It would be great if the grand finale were Obama firing them to save face and them spilling their guts because they were fired.

Care to prove your assertion son?

Or can we simply chalk it up to your opinion as usual?

Don't worry though. I won't hold it against you if you don't answer. It's not like I should expect anything different.

He's shifted more and more to the right and each time he gives in, the rw crazies demand even more.
This might be one of the reasons why people like McCain are beginning to put their foot down.
Even he can recognize the danger that's brewing.
Senator McCain has a more realistic
