You can add as many words in there as you like I suppose, but the bottom line is that folks are trying to re-write history to promote one word over another.

I was never a fan of re-writers of history

How much more can the Republican tea party be now days?

Tax hikes and immigration reform on the table, triggering a GOP civil war.

On a similar note, I am starting to worry about my "inner child", as I also seem to have an "inner priest". ;)

They drink to much and fall down, just like stupid drunks they have become.

No one wants to see or hear from them again, they are finished and they know it.

Oh no, this is the loud voice in the party, they wont be finished until they actually get someone like Rick Santorum or some other nut case to actually be the nominee, and when they lose by a landslide to the democrats, then the Tea Party will be finished.

You are right about civil war in the GOP, but because a supposedly moderate candidate lost, that actually gives more ammo to the far far right wing. I donít think they will be able to face reality until they actually get a right wing nut job to be the nominee.

In the meantime, the more moderate GOP in congress are likely to actually get some work done, as they actually can see the writing on the wall.

At least that is my hope

Never bet any money on a Willard.

Please tell this to Karl Rove who Pizzed away $300 million dollars on a failed attempt at buying a elected position.

Yes, I agree, you and I are reading things that ARE there! Like something might be fishy. Or not, but either way we deserve to know. Right?

Fun stuff!

About time you start to worry. But it's too late if you now have a priest in there with you and the kid.

you only posted wild-assed conspiracy theory concepts of what you think is fishy.

i would like a review of what went down so we know how to do it better.

the true facts on the benghazi event are clear. you just need better information gathering techniques or sources.

Clear eh? Perhaps you will clear a few things up for us then. First, why were we falsely told for two weeks that it was a demonstration against a YouTube video?

All that while, they were saying they had no intel to pin it on any one terrorist group..and they didn't. the protests around the region against the video made that seem like the best reason any intel could point to.

would you have prefered they throw out wild-assed accusations not based in any fact?

We've gone over all this previously...do you really need to do it again? how bout if i just give you a link to that topix page...

whoever said that was wrong ( it was not me ), he was impeached by the house, and then the impeachment failed in the senate.

Outcome, failed impeachment

Consequences of failed impeachment, zip

Oh no.. You have me all wrong ( again )

I hope they do learn and give me a viable choice, I would love to go to the polls conflicted about who I will vote for. The Democrats donít fully represent me and I would love to see another viable choice.

But I am afraid that will not happen until the far right wing becomes marginalized, and I am afraid that wonít happen yet.

It is very unfortunate

I would have preferred they throw out the truth. They knew it was not a demonstration with the first mortar rounds and RPGs.

The impeachment did not "fail". Bill Clinton was impeached.

I am a conservative democrat. I've been a registered democrat for over 40 years.

Bla bla bla..far right wing BAD!! Bla bla bla Far left wing NOT Bad!!

It is very unfortunate neither side compromises.

Democrats idea of compromise seems to be that Republicans must become democrats!
