I can't wait until 2016 to watch the right wingers try to agree on anything other than they hate Obama.

Yes, please do. Can't count Lois Lerner or that other guy associated with the IRS. They just took an early retirement.
List only those who were actually fired by Barack Obama.
During Chris Christie's hour long plus news conference today__he mentioned that the state of New Jersey has 65,000 government workers and it would be impossible for him to know what all were doing or thinking.

Petraeus took an early retirement too__as did McChrystal as did others who weren't built for the job, couldn't handle the heat, had a lapse in judgement etc.

What did Lois Lerner, the Bush appointee, do wrong? Remind me eh?

Did you know that one of the groups she supposedly targeted is operated by a turbocharged teaparty fool who is going to challenge Ohio's governor Kasich in this years primary because Kasich is not sufficiently "right wing?" This will cause Kasich to spend money to fight off another Republican that he really needs to combat Democrats.

Their dilemma is that Christie is the only Republican that had a chance in 2016. Problem now is that his claim to reach across the aisle was really just to punch the Democrat over there. He really hurt his credibility with non-partisan voters looking for compromise.

"For nearly two hours today, Chris Christie stood up and repeatedly made himself out to be the victim. He lauded himself for swift action in firing staffers for lying to him. And he argued that this was not reflective of the culture he’s created in his office.
But Chris Christie is not the victim. The people of New Jersey who trusted him are.
He didn’t take ‘swift action’. He ignored questions and responsibility for more than 120 days, until his administration was finally caught red-handed.
The fireable offense should not be that his team lied to him — it’s that they took actions that hurt the people of New Jersey.
And it’s clear that Chris Christie absolutely created and fostered a culture in his office where this type of conduct was considered appropriate.
Today’s spectacle by the Governor has left many questions still unanswered.
But there’s one thing that was crystal clear today — Chris Christie needs to focus less on his ego, and more on the people of NJ."

Death panels.

I'm going to correct you on this one because I don't like to condone this type of reporting from either side.

According to many reports, the woman, Florence Genova, to whom the media keeps referring to was a 91 year old who had suffered a heart attack and was found unconscious by a "home health aide". Paramedics got to her in seven minutes. SEVEN MINUTES. IMO, to try and tie that death to snarled traffic is really sensationalizing a story that stands on it's own merit without that type of reporting. Just saying.

In America, when you disagree with a Conservative your choices are:
1) eat a ham and cheese sandwich
2) enter into a lively debate
3) place a paper bag with excrement on your nemesis porch and ignite
4) threaten to cut off a man's penis

I think its funny how the abuse of power by his administration is something we should all agree upon. I haven't seen anyone defend Christie, but you'd never know that listening to the left.

Gotta love how quick the hearings started, and how the libs are upset because people are pleading the 5th.
