But like one of your supporters said "What's good for the goose is good for the gander". Wouldn't you have to agree?
I remeber this like yesterday. They made a comment that they were ashamed that he was from texas. Actually the SOB come from the gates of Hell! Now I suggest we all picth in and send Angie, Synergy and Bill out to California to see Dr.Phil and have a great big pity party. I don't believe these republicans can make it another 3 and a half years without going crazier than they already are.

Sorry Mr. Lee. If you're promoting this guy you've lost all credibility and respect. Differing opinions on how to solve problems are welcome and essential to Americas political process. Pure dumbassery is not.
I don't believe he'll win. I have no issues with his voting record, others are talking and voting like Broun (Gingrey especially). Broun doesn't beat around the bush. A couple of emotionally crazed statements doesn't make him unworthy. Once again, what facts do you have against him, not talking points or opinions.

I beg to differ. The socialists, those that truly believe in those principles, are being used by the fascists that rule the left. Those socialists who are probably more likely naïve idealists are soon to find out just how deceitful the leadership really is.

While all of the above points documenting failures at high levels to address security shortfalls must be addressed, those are really not my biggest concern, though it is POSSIBLE they serve to answer my question - WHY was it so important for the Obama administration to put forth the fiction about the video, when they KNEW it was fiction. Was the Obama WH trying to avoid scrutiny of the inadequate security? Is that the reason for what can without doubt now be called a cover up? I don't know. Or is there some other reason? But that is the crux of the issue - WHY the need to push the video narrative?

And ABC and CBS are finally waking up to the need to have questions answered. It's about da-n time.

Did Clinton’s State Department fail to provide adequate security for the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi? In retrospect, obviously so. But the three diplomats who testified at the hearing gave no evidence that this failure sprang from anything other than the need to use limited resources as efficiently as possible.
House Republicans who voted to cut funding for State Department security should understand that their philosophy — small government is always better — has consequences. Bureaucrats have to make judgment calls. Sometimes they will be wrong.

You're just sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting for the moment they FINALLY have something they can pin on Obama. The suspense is killing you.

LOL - it's not going to happen. You're going to be so disappointed.

You think theres blood in the water - and you're another angry shark waiting for your turn to bite. You're going to go away hungry.

I'm sure the Republicans will get somebodys head on a stick. At this point they CAN'T not produce a head because it will embarrass them too much. They might take a nibble at Hillary.

Hillary doesn't care. She'll still PUMMEL whatever dim-witted anti-science, anti-middle-class, bible-thumping evolution denier, corporate puppet the Republicans (or the 2016 Koch Convene, more accurately) push forth.

And Karl Roves head will explode. AGAIN.

I'm looking forward to it.

Yup. General Motors, Chrysler and GE are all good examples. Smart, forward looking business people realize that they can do nothing without the enthusiastic contributions of good employees and are willing to pay those people well. Unfortunately organized labor protects the deadbeat employee at the expense of the key employees.

I don't know anything about Broun. And I while disagree with him on his Big Bang position (I am a Christian who has no problem at all with the Big Bang - and it was actually every bit as much of a kick in the shorts for atheists as it was for Young Earthers) I would not discount him just because of those positions the article talks about. All I have to do is look at the likes of:

Sheila Jackson Lee - too many to choose from

Nancy "we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" Pelosi

Joe "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S." Biden

Maxine Waters: "Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing...uh, um...Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies."

Compared to them, he's a brain trust.
