Web sites like that are designed for under developed minds like you. Idiots like you who don't possess the power of self thinking are made to order for those hate mongers.
And also for clowns like you who take 20+ years to reach a rank that a college graduate can reach in two years.

Loser.

Isn't it embarrassing to be a 40-year old Captain?

You come across as a decent person, even if a completely clueless liberal.

So, the question arises as to why you continually climb in bed with a sleazeball like Ghost.

Darrell Issa Declares War on John Boehner as Benghazi Investigation Turns Into a Circus
The big House Benghazi investigation has turned into a full blown circus, as John Boehner has lost control over Darrell Issa, who has gone rogue, and is trashing Boehner’s big plans.
Here is a transcript of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) explaining the meltdown in the House GOP to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer:
BLITZER: What exactly is going on?
REP. CUMMINGS: I think the Speaker has lost control of Issa. Mr. Issa’s trying to interject himself into the Select Committee’s business. Keep in mind, Wolf, when the Select Committee was formed what the Speaker said was everything comes under the Select Committee. Now, here we have Mr. Issa trying to bring the Secretary in, and the Secretary is saying, you know, I’m going to come, but I’m just going to come one time. This is it. By the way, Wolf, it undermines the Select Committee. It undermines them. This is the very thing they were worried about.
BLITZER: I thought if there was a Select Committee, it would supersede the other committees.
CUMMINGS: That’s exactly right….I can tell you. I would think that Trey (Gowdy) would be a little upset about this. In other words, it’s his committee now, the Select Committee, and now he sees Issa operating on the outside, and the Speaker said it would not be a circus, but we’ve got a circus on the side.
Blitzer and Cummings both agreed that Sec. of State Kerry wouldn’t know anything, because he was a senator and not the Sec. of State at the time of the attack.
Yesterday, Issa sabotaged the Select Committee by disclosing details of a memo that confirms that the White House was telling the truth about Benghazi. At the time, it was speculated that Issa was bitter about the Benghazi investigation being taken away from him. Rep. Issa’s behavior today proves that he is actively working to sabotage Boehner’s Select Committee investigating Benghazi.
This whole sideshow has turned into an epic circus before the Special Committee has even formally been seated. I agree with Rep. Cummings. Boehner has lost all control of Issa, who is now acting on his own. The whole let’s get Obama with Benghazi plan is melting into complete chaos and dysfunction.
The great Benghazi investigation is a total joke, as Boehner, Issa, and company are getting what they deserve for trying to exploit the deaths of four Americans for partisan political gain.

It is really unfair of Congress to ask Vietnam war hero Kerry to explain Benghazi when he is dedicated 24/7 to #BringBackOurGirls.

What else could be more important?

Shame on those traitors.

A Wolf In Fox's Clothing: CNN Host Legitimizes Benghazi Hoax

Conservative media have sought to legitimize the House's new select committee on Benghazi by claiming only it could answer questions about Benghazi that have already been answered, a tactic that appeared to spill over to CNN on May 22.

If that's OK with you, why don't we privatize the VA system. Then the deadwood could be fired.

Marco Rubio can't name one source for his claims climate scientists are wrong about climate science

As you may have read here or elsewhere in the past few days, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, one of the Republicans testing the waters for a presidential run in 2016, has made clear he's a climate change denier.

But on Tuesday during a brief exchange at the National Press Club, a member of the audience asked through a moderator “what information, reports, studies or otherwise are you relying on to inform and reach your conclusion that human activity is not to blame for climate change?” He couldn't name a single source. So, he dodged the question and denied that he is a denier with a hokey mixture of truisms, truths, half-truths and BS.

Totally unnecessary. He could simply have referred to the peer-reviewed research of ExxonMobil, Ph.D., and Dr. David Koch and Dr. Charles Koch, climatologists.

You obviously have a reading comprehension problem. Seems to be a common trait with Rethugs.
To recap: TPRTY was the one complaining and accusing Realtime of "Juvenile name-calling" because he said TPRTY's brain seemed to be on meth. This discourse was preceeded by TPRTY's rant about the "ACA clusterf**k" and Realtime's "ignorant, dumbfk pals." I merely pointed out that TPRTY had no room to talk as his behavior was far more juvenile.
I would suggest if you can't follow a conversation, you might want to keep your yap shut. Don't you ever get tired of wiping egg off your face?
You obviously didn't pay attention.

Read Realtime's post that I responded to with "ignorant, dumbfk pals.¨

Not that a narrow minded progressive like yourself cares about facts, but he received what he dished out. Unlike your ilk, I don't respond to civil posts with uncivil replies.

Take the hospital system run by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the largest integrated health system in the United States.

And the system for veterans is by all accounts one of the best-performing and most cost-effective elements in the American medical establishment.
Really? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
There were a lot of Socialist Liberal Media jerks way back there who were promoting Obamacare using an argument that we can just look at how fine the VA has been run for just about forever as proof how well big government will be able to run healthcare in America.

Sick joke, eh?

Where are those jerks now? Ghost writing for Stephen Colbert, probably.

A leftist can't help but spew the truth - their reality - when they get pissed off.

This world needs more Nobel Laureates......like it needs more AIDS.
