Best not to argue with Realtime. He thinks PDupont is the smartest guy on this thread. Facts confuse them both.
Really Carol? Like the "fact" that under ACA gets access to your medical records? That wasn't even close to a fact it was a bald faced lie.

Fox News Throws Out Benghazi With Yesterday’s Scandal Trash

It seems incomprehensible that there were once such emphatic calls for Barack Obama’s impeachment due to the Libyan attacks; that pundits envisioned him being driven from office; that Watergate analogies spread like a plague. Because in recent days there has been hardly a mention of any of it. Fox News, who was blanketing their airwaves with Benghazi Fever a week ago, have all but ignored the story this week. Having failed to ignite a fire under Obama’s presidency, the Benghazi affair has been consigned to the garbage heap of history. Along with such other notable pseudo-scandals as Solyndra, Fast & Furious, gun confiscations, the climate change hoax, Sharia Law, death panels, pallin’ around with terrorists, and the Kenyan nativity, Benghazi has been picked clean by the vultures of the Tea-publican prairie, and having concluded that there is no meat left on the bones, they see no reason to stick around.

That is not to say that the rightist mobs have abandoned their mission to destroy Obama. They have just refocused their attention on a younger, prettier scandal peeking out from behind the skirts of the sultry Internal Revenue Service. This is now the new gate-suffixed controversy that demands immediate impeachment hearings and affiliated witch trials.

The ease with which the Wingnut Inquisitionists shift from one hysteria to another reveals something foundational about their character. It is obvious that they couldn’t care less about the patriots who died in Benghazi or their grieving families. They don’t care about the policies that impact the security of Americans in foreign territories. They only care about how tragedies such as these can be exploited politically, and when it becomes apparent that their political punch has petered out, they can’t abandon them quickly enough.

So it’s off with Benghazi and on to the IRS – for now. Rest assured that this too shall pass as soon as the Obama-bashers realize that they can’t hang this one around his neck either. So even the legitimate concerns raised with regard to the abuse of power and politicization of the taxing agency will go unanswered. Without an Obama angle, Fox and their GOP benefactors see no reason to pursue it. They would rather not waste their time cleaning up the IRS – or securing diplomatic embassies, or mandating universal background checks for assault weapons, or stimulating the economy and creating jobs, or performing any of the other functions of governing – unless it could lead to toppling Obama.

One thing you can say for them is that they have a single-minded devotion to purpose. And their purpose has nothing whatsoever to do with serving America or its people. Their purpose is, and has always been, to deep-six a president they never considered legitimate; who was never patriotic enough, Christian enough, smart enough, or white enough.

HEY STUPID! Greece's problems don't have anything to do with any kind of "socialist policies" but from the fact that they were suckered into joining the Euro zone and in the process lost control of their currency. Other countries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark all of which nitwits like you would describe as "socialistic" didn't buy into that scam and are doing just fine.
By the way moron the Obama phones that right wingers love to trot out is actually a 28 year old program called Lifeline that was signed into law by Ronald Reagan and renewed by George HW Bush.

You're right,killtaker. shinningelectr0n, when he does post links,doesn't back them up with any brief,logical statement of his own. His links are all climate-denier propaganda pieces mostly heavily paid for by Big Coal and Oil that advocate 'small government', weak, ineffective, and dysfunctional so Big Business is free without accountability) to dump the costs of their pollution on the Commons(forcing the rest of us to pay the higher costs of catastrophic climate change)

Riots and unrest in Sweden, just like Greece...

"The left, which dominated Swedish politics for decades and devised the cradle-to-grave welfare system, has blamed reduced state benefits and a modest shift toward the privatization of public services for the unrest"...

So what are the Democrats pushing here in the USA?

To be like Sweden & Greece.

It's called "bidniss" in Chicago.
Obama wasn't even elected to the Presidency yet. It was the Bush43 Administration that offered the GM bailout without accountability for paying it back to the tax payer. Once Obama replaced Bush43 as President, Obama set out to make sure the American people(GM employees and consumers) best interests were protected in the GM survival deal.

Congressional investigations found the old Orleans Levee Board more interested in managing a casino license and two marinas than looking after levees. Inspections were ceremonial, millions of dollars were spent on a fountain and overpasses rather than on levee protection. And there was confusion over who was responsible for managing the fragmented levee system, U.S. Senate investigations revealed.
Experts agree poor levee designs by the corps and the sheer strength of Katrina get the lion's share of the blame.

"Poor levee designs and strength of Katrina get lion's share of the blame." Didn't see George W. Bush's name anywhere in any article as being the source of blame.
You have no idea what you're talking about. There was nothing structurally wrong with the New Orleans levees---they were built to specs to resist storms up to a Category 3 hurricane. The scientific data was ignored that climate scientist's were making predictions that more extreme storms would form closer to coastal regions as climate worsened from man-made greenhouse gasses pollution--no one expected a Category 5 Katrina superstorm!

They were copies Carol, even the prosecutors in the case said they were copies. When you get documents from the National Archives you get copies, never the originals which are retained on file.
Why destroy them? Because even a copy of a classified document is classified you clueless twit!
Nancy Kegan Smith, who directs the Archives' presidential documents staff and let Berger view the documents, said "she would NEVER KNOW know what IF ANY ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS were missing."

It was simply asserted and widely accepted they were "just copies". It was never determined if any originals were taken.

But, once again, your hypocrisy is on display. If a Bush advisor had "mistakingly" taken "copies" of classified documents from the Archives during a 9/11 investigation, you'd be singing a whole different song and the shrill would hurt our ears.

Any top official in any administration would know classified documents - copies or otherwise - cannot be taken from the National Archives. No one makes that kind of "mistake".

City’s Emergency Office 'Failed'
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a New Orleans Police captain, Timothy P. Bayard, prepared an internal report assessing the role played by his city's Office of Emergency Preparedness. He introduced the report to investigators by saying: "The New Orleans Office of Emergency Preparedness failed. They did not prepare themselves, nor did they manage the city agencies responsible for conducting emergency response to the disaster. Their function was to coordinate with state, federal and other local agencies, to enlist logistical assistance. We did not coordinate with any state, local or federal agencies. We were not prepared logistically. Most importantly, we relocated evacuees to two locations where there was no food, water or portable restrooms. We did not implement the pre-existing plan. We did not utilize buses that would have allowed us to transport mass quantities of evacuees expeditiously. We did not have food, water or fuel for the emergency workers. We did not have a back up communication system. We had no portable radio towers or repeaters that would have enabled us to communicate. The other mistakes have been mentioned previously."

So, it proves that Bush43 WASN"T prepared for the extreme magnitude of Category 5 Hurricane Katrina (even though he was getting frequent updated reports from Brownie's FEMA that the hurricane was getting stronger as it moved directly towards New Orleans. Bush43 chose to ignore the reports like he ignored the pre-9/11 terrorism warnings from the Clinton Administration.
