<quoted text>"Why conservatives so desperately need a scandal" A scandal already exists and it is you libs that recognize, acknowledge, and reinforce the fact that there exists a scandal in all of the liberal press.
The real scandal is that Republicans make up these phony scandals to avoid facing their own scandal of refusing to govern effectively and instead force government shut-downs, delay approving Obama judicial appointments and delay votes on crucial legislation the country needs on immigration, climate change, net neutrality, GMO labeling laws, amnesty for non-violent drug offenders, minimum wage increases , campaign finance reform , etc. etc.

Theory on why Waxman keeps whining about this:
Years ago a young Waxman's fat-assed mother was in the woods and shot by a poacher who authorities said mistook her for a moose. When Waxman complained that the poacher must have thought she was a deer instead, he was told, "What difference does it make, dumbass?".

"Many on welfare usually have a car, cellphone and television"

classic

"Most homeless people want to be homeless."

And yes, a terrorist attack is act of terror.
The more you Tea Party morons bring up Benghazi, the dumber & more desperate you appear to be.
But an act of terror isn't a terrorist attack. The shooting in the Colorado theater was an act of terror, but the shooter wasn't a terrorist.

Al Qaeda has split up into numerous smaller groups.

It's not hard to figure that one out since nothing else appears to be working....
Political witch hunts have defined the Republican party since the 1990's. They are such pathetic buffoons.

Boehner's announcing a special committee to investigate Benghazi is a repeat of Newt Gingrich's $2.5 million commission to look into Democratic donor Bernard Schwartz, then head of Loral, selling satellites to China in hopes he could tie it to Clinton. It collapsed entirely when the Justice Department "turned up not a scintilla of evidence -- or information -- that the president was corruptly influenced by Schwartz." Over and over and over again, Republicans insist on looking like fools. They will never learn.

FACT: "The GOP is no longer capable of compromise, and therefore of effective government."

Reich wingers are using MY money and time to further their political agendas AGAIN on the same issue.

Clearly they have no problems wasting taxpayer funds.

I thought Democrats like poverty as a voter drive tool since Ted Kennedy started this,

"Over the past two decades, the United States has run an immigration policy that has substantially increased poverty in this country. Two-thirds of immigrant households—that is counting both immigrants and their U.S.-born children—from Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala live in poverty or near-poverty. Other Latin-American immigrant groups fare only a little less badly: more than 50 percent among Salvadorans; just less than 50 percent among Cubans.

As the United States debates an immigration reform that will substantially increase the flow of unskilled immigrants, Americans need to keep in mind that the debate over how much immigration to welcome is also a debate about how much more poverty to accept."

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2...

And culturally Democrats have been behind the legitimization of unwed motherhood. Remember the media attacks on Repulicans in the 70s or 80s when they thought Murphy Brown was a bad role model?

"War on Women", "Racism" are accusations that seek to quiet the voice of common sense and advocacy of personal responsibility.

Benghazi vs Watergate
Hmmm. What are the differences?

Americans tortured and killed vs a break-in with no lives lost.

Media censure on behalf of their culturally popular but inept President and a President not on the left so the event was fully investigated and reported until the desired result was achieved.

Would would the media have said and how would it have been reported if a Republican president had disappeared until time to jump on his campaign trip to Vegas to fundraise?

Even if you won't admit it, we all know that YOU KNOW.
