In an editorial published Monday, The Newark Star-Ledger rejected arguments made by Republicans that the George Washington Bridge lane closings scandal has been over-covered compared to the attack in 2012 on a U.S. diplomatic mission and a C.I.A. compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The newspaper offered three reasons why "the unrelated Bridgegate and Benghazi stories aren’t getting equal time – and shouldn’t." For one, the editorial argued, in the case of the Benghazi attack, as in the case of the IRS political screening scandal, "the facts dampened the early cries of conspiracy and cover-up."
The editorial also argued that documents released last week showing aides to Gov. Chris Christie (R) covering the tracks of their involvement with the lane closures have raised a lot of unanswered questions.
Finally, the editorial argued that the Obama stories aren't being covered now simply because of the way time works.
"To expect coverage of old stories to increase because of an uncomfortable new story is silly," the editorial said.

And you think a stronger, bolder al Qaeda left to their own devices in their own little corner of the world would be happy if we just stopped bothering them and would leave us alone and be content containing their hatred toward western civilization and us infidels if we just got the hell out, do you?
You and Obama are two peas in the same naďve liberal pod
Thinking we're immune from the middle east imploding with the rise of an army of al Qaeda is not only naďve but a dangerously stupid assumption.
What you and Obama miserably fail to grasp is this enemy isn't going to give up just because you and Obama are ready to surrender.
What should we do, fool??

Bush borrowed the money for the Iraq War from China.

Bush spent Trillions, what was the result??

Trade a secular Dictator in Iraq with a Shiite Dictator beholden to Iran.

Take an unstable MiddleEast and turn it into an ongoing Civil War in many nations all over the ME.

The best thing we can do is let them sort it out.

Let Israel fend for themselves. They're the real problem in the Middle East. A bunch of European Jews trying to go back 2000 years to create a nation that hasn't existed in milllenia.

America cannot dictate policy to other nations. Bush proved that when the Iraqi's turned on him and demanded our withdrawal.

There was no possibility of Obama changing the SOFA Bush signed.

History will record the Iraq War as the biggest mistake since Vietnam.

And it's all on Bush.

FBI Director James Comey said Thursday the threat is one of his "greatest concerns."

"My concern is that people can go to Syria, develop new relationships, learn new techniques and become far more dangerous, and then flow back," Comey told reporters.

Previous estimates put the number of Americans in the Syrian conflict at 16, but researcher Aaron Zelin at the Washington Institute for Near-East Policy in a report last month said as many as 60 from the U.S. may have fought among an estimated 11,000 foreign militants in Syria.

He does the 'fear and loathing' crap real well, but it's still just crap.
He still hasn't lived down his prediction of $7 gasoline - which he said would be all Obama's fault.
He has never made a correct call in the 4 years I've been here.
He's a true 'Chicken Little'. To Flake, "the sky is falling" constantly.
No matter how dumb he appears, wingnut nation (Carol and Whatever) cheers him on.
The rising cost of generation fuels, particularly natural gas, contributes to a projected increase in the residential price of electricity. EIA expects the U.S. residential price of electricity to average 12.4 cents/kWh during 2014, an increase of 2.0% from 2013. Residential electricity prices increase 2.0% during 2015.

Bush didn't let the sanctions drop like O'bama did. Nor did O'bama pay attention when Turkey dropped sanctions. O'bama too stupid to realize that Iran is responsible for most of the terrorism in the world, Why didn't O'bama just write a check to Iran and get it over with? Same difference. The sanctions were so devastating to Iran that they had to quit funding acts of terrorism. O'bama needs the terrorism-he likes when moslems blow up Americans.

Only one American, Muslim convert Nicole Lynn Mansfield, 33, is known to have been killed in the Syrian war, though her daughter has insisted her mother was not a terrorist. Mansfield participated in protests against Israel in Michigan before joining combatants in Syria.
She was an Obama supporter.

Florida is more highly regulated than many others parts of the country, where consumers are free to shop among various suppliers for the generation component of their bill....so, you don't know shit about what a given customer pays....

Didn't look at the clock and have a few minutes to wait before my agent will be back in the office.

Additional info on why electricity is projected to increase

"Another determining factor in electric rates will be the generation mix used in future years. The uncertainty of today’s regulatory environment makes it difficult to predict future capacity planning decisions. Costs for technologies such as those used in coal generation, which is already capital intensive, may be increased by impending greenhouse gas legislation. This would cause electricity prices to rise as coal units would have to be either replaced or updated to conform to new environmental standards. Another effect of this probable GHG legislation is the current “dash to gas”. Natural gas plants are faster to site and build than other base load generation. Realizing that natural gas also is less carbon intensive than coal, many companies are shifting this direction. However, even though the plants are relatively easy to site and cheap to build, natural gas, as a fuel source, has a history of price volatility. "

I'm in a very expensive state for electricity, and I pay .09 cents per kwh.

Using the stupid math preferred by you, that 2% increase can easily be rounded up to a doubling of the price of electricity, right?? ROFLMAO

You just made Flake appear the fool most of us know he is.
