You better read the 5th amendment and when you get to the part where someone needs to explain why they invoked it, come back.

Well, fortunately, for all of us, the media knew what their job was back then. Or it just could have been a Republican president. Either/or.
But, unfortunately, for all of us, the media now protects those who hold power over us. Or it just could be a fellow progressive liberal. Either/or.
Doesn't that remind you of another time in history? Or even present-day countries where those in power have control over the media?
If it doesn't, it should.
What happened to "imagine" babe.
Those hearings were carried live on C-Span babe__not really much need for yuks like Brit Hume to put their own spin on it during the nightly news. And btw, "the fix" was firmly in place from day one of those proceedings.

This administration is resisting and blocking any attempt at getting to the bottom of not only the IRS corruption but the Benghazi corruption.

Unless someone like Michael Morrell (the former Deputy Director of the CIA) who was directly responsible for changing the talking points about Benghazi or Leon Panetta (the former Director of the CIA) who testified early on he knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack within minutes before going directly to brief the president comes clean under oath, we might not know the truth until after this president is long gone.

We can only hope the majority of Americans really aren't stupid after all.

There's corruption written all over these scandals like inner city graffiti.

No one understands why we're $17 trillion in debt. The liberals were complaining about the debt under GWB after 9/11 and his Democrat-controlled Congress two years before the crash.

No one understands why jobs are diminishing or why the pipeline isn't already underway.

Except liberals. Ask them.

I agree, let's not be blaming debacles on everyone else. That would be ridiculously ignorant and disingenuous. Probably why I haven't and won't.

Invoking the 5th is not obstruction. Shutting the government down to punish and embarrass our president by tea baggers is obstruction.

The pressure from the media - remember Woodward and Bernstein - who even conservative critics accept as being the two reporters instrumental in Nixon's downfall - had more to do with uncovering the truth about Watergate than anyone's testimony.

Several people went to jail under the Nixon administration simply for covering up a politically-motivated break in at a hotel called Watergate.

Frankly, you're out of your mind if you don't think the media would have already brought down Obama had he been Richard Nixon.

Well said.

Too bad only a handful of informed democrat voters know this to be true.
