The Majority concludes that the interagency coordination process on the talking points followed normal, but rushed coordination procedures and that there were no efforts by the White House or any other Executive Branch entities to "cover-up" facts or make alterations for political purposes.

so let's talk preventable....
The State Department had warned of a potential strike against the Saudi days before gunmen infiltrated the Al Hamra Oasis Village and two others killing 36 people and wounding 160. This was the most devastating attack on a State Department employees to occur under Bush.
U.S. Diplomat David Foy was specifically targeted in the third attack in as many years on the Karachi consulate compound. He was one of four people killed.

Anyone heard any news about Obamacare recently? Except the recent news - a top computer tech testified before Congress any amateur can still obtain personal information off the website?

Any new numbers reported? Anything about the website's success? Any news about insurers getting accurate information now?

It's much too quiet on the Obamacare front.

""March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.(I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name "David Foy." This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what's considered American soil.)""

Bobby Jindal Proposes Increase In Higher Education Funding After Years Of Suggesting Cuts
""BATON ROUGE, La.(AP)— After six years of suggesting cuts, Gov. Bobby Jindal said Tuesday he'll recommend that lawmakers increase state financing for higher education next year and steer $40 million to a new workforce development initiative on campuses.
Jindal offered a peek at the 2014-15 budget proposal that his administration will detail to lawmakers Friday. It will pay for state government operations in the new year that begins July 1. Jindal was surrounded by higher education leaders, who applauded the announcement.
"The state is in its best fiscal position since the start of the recession, the national recession in 2008. We now have the great challenge of meeting the demand for a skilled workforce that has never existed in Louisiana before. It's a challenge, but I know we can do it," Jindal said.
The Republican governor said his spending plan would boost higher education funding by $142 million, though $88 million of that will come from increased tuition costs on students that already have been approved by lawmakers.
But unlike in past years, Jindal won't recommend that the new tuition dollars replace state funding. Instead, the governor said he is proposing that the campuses get a stable base of state funding, with the new tuition income on top of that.
In addition, the governor's budget will include the $40 million state funding pool to help campuses with initiatives matching students to jobs and $12 million for other targeted projects at colleges.
"This is a tremendous step forward for the financial recovery of higher ed," said Clinton "Bubba" Rasberry, chairman of the Board of Regents, which oversees higher education policy in the state.
Higher education leaders have pushed for the governor and lawmakers to stop slashing state financing for colleges and universities, after more than $700 million in cuts since 2008. Tuition increases on students have offset only about two-thirds of the state funding losses.""
since 2008? since the great recession? noooooooooo Jidal was practicing fiscal responsibility-damn. Why would he do that?

Good job Judge Bernard L. McGinley, screw those bastards that would try and deny Americans the right to vote.

Rand Paul? hilarious. Perhaps he and Cruz could run together and have a true whining contest.
Oops...responded to the wrong post before.

In 2009, before an interview with "Pay Czar" Kenneth Feinberg, the White House announced that Fox News would be banned from the press pool. It marked the first time in history that an administration attempted to ban an entire network from the press pool.

To their credit, the other networks objected. They told the White House that if Fox were banned, none of the other networks would participate. The White House relented, but in an apparent act of petulant retaliation, it restricted each network to a two-minute interview instead of the standard five.

So the answer to that one is "yes".

The Senate Intelligence Committee answered the last one. It's a "yes" too.

But your score is still 50%.

If the Repugs weren't scared shirtless, they would never have fought for Voter ID.
You want voter id because your side is losing elections.
If the founding fathers thought Voted ID was needed, it would be in the Constitution.
Ask your buddy Dweeb about the Constitution. LOL
It's not, so you can't impose it on people. Esp. when there is no evidence of voter fraud.
It is simply a means to disenfranchise the poor, the students, the minorities.
You've never heard about the ballot box stuffing in major cities, and in minority neighborhoods, you need to get out more?

Judge Bernard McGinley of the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania ruled against the state’s strict voter ID law last week following a lengthy trial last summer. The law had been temporarily blocked since last October pending a full trial. The ruling is a big win for voting rights and a clear setback for voter ID supporters.
Judge McGinley found that the law violated the state constitution because hundreds of thousands of registered voters lacked the restrictive forms of ID required by the state, few had obtained the requisite ID since the law’s passage in March 2012, the state had not made it easy to get an ID and there was no evidence of in-person voter fraud to justify the burdens of the law.
Voter disenfranchisement and gerrymandering: this is the only way a Republican can win.
The Democrats know this and will get out and vote in huge numbers. There are more Democrats than Republicans in this country; people have to stop being complacent.
