Exactly. Not only do they tell falsehoods loudly and publicly, and without apology, they insist on PROJECTING their falsehoods onto the 'other side.'

Of course they never, EVER admit that both parties are supposed to be on the SAME side...

What good cop. Their competancy is more like that of the Keystone cops. The Republican party would be much better off without idiots like this, especially in leadership positions.

LOL
More accurately, Boehner and McConnell are playing bad cop/worse cop. The word "good" does not describe either one of them.

Will Boehner support the Obama's socialistic revolution and driving the private sector out of business for government rule of the American industry, energy, healthcare and what not? Obviously, Obama will continue pushing his socialistic revolution and transfer of the rule of America to the liberal unions together with the food stampers, illegal invaders and foreign students from China and Saudi Arabia, unemployed, disabled, illiterate and uneducated Americans that are now have the majority in America. Obama will continue to target the Republican, Independent and conservative 'rich' to pay more and more so that he can pay more trillions of dollars to buy the votes of the food stampers, illegals and unemployed that live on his monthly checks. In addition, Obama will continue to push the Obama care for 30 million illegals and foreign students that will drive the health system to full collapse with no Doctors, no drugs and no hospital beds for the Republicans, conservatives and Independents that will be put in the back of the waiting list. Will America survive four more years under the communist dictator and Jihadist Mozlem brother culture scholar Barack Hussein Obama? Probably not.
Jeff Dimstone strikes again. You forgot to capitalize HUSSEIN, you bloviting, bigoted buffoon.

Obama admitted today that the WH sent Rice out to lie about Benghazi. Did he just seal his own fate?

The Benghazi Deception is still worthy of front page coverage.

If MSM can make it another story about sex, they are off the hook for doing their job.

This falls on republicans. The FBI reported to Eric Cantor but Cantor kept it secret and reported to no one which republicans are furious and came out publicly and said why were they not told. Why did Cantor keep this secret--was he waiting for the election to be over. What did the Patraeus lover know about the incident and deaths in Libya. Cantor is known to be very ruthless and ambitious wanting Boehner's job. Was he setting up the Speaker of the House or Obama and something went awry in his plans that he shoved it under the rug. Cantor has explaining to do for sure!
Because originally the entire claim was girl gossip. The Agent who reported this to Cantor, was trying to make moves on the Girl and looking to score points. He wasn't an agent assigned to the case just someone she knew who worked for the FBI.

Cantor was right not to say anything, he would have loss the election if he had. This is nothing more than Girl Gossip over Generals neither of them are married to.

The Women the FBI Agent was trying to impress is a certified ding bat.

Typical teabagger.
When Boehner struck a conciliatory bipartisan tone last week, McConnell took a hard line against Obama with a simple message: no tax hikes. When Boehner called on the president to lead him to a deal, McConnell took a sharper line, warning that Obama “doesn’t own the place.”
No, but Grover still owns your ass.
McConnell talked to a conservative opinion writer for The Wall Street Journal and gave exclusives to conservative outlet Breitbart News ensuring his party will not simply cave to the president’s demands.
To make SURE Grover reads it.
For McConnell, who faces reelection in 2014 for a sixth term in a state growing where anti-Obama feelings run strong, it gives him even less incentive to shift to the middle to get a deal with the president.
5 Terms?
McTurtle needs to go.
Boner.
10 Terms.
Needs to go.
Grover will take care of them.
Turtle soup with orange juice? I hope so.

You're right. Boehner and McConnel need to go. But the big question is, who will replace them? The Republican party will undoubtedly screen any replacements they are forced to pick and their criteria will only include what's good for their party. On the other hand, how can government get better if they are replaced by someone like Pelosi, Durbin, Schumer, Reid, Guiterrez, Casey, Hoyer, McCain, Graham, Toomey or any one of the other idiots serving in congress. Now that's not an argument against replacing these jerks, it's an example of how hard it is to elect anyone that will put the people and country before their party. Both parties suck.

Either does FOX.

Why haven't they sent ONE reporter to Benghazi to "investigate"?

Why are they relying on others to do their job?

The Election is Over.
America voted to surrender, submit and OBEY The Obama. We all must refocus on preparing our children to settle for a much bleaker future.
Email your Congressperson and demand that they rubber stamp anything Pelosi demands of them. America voted to fail. Repubs must cower on the sidelines in service to The Obama during our transition to tax slavery to Big Brother.
Teabaggers had that chance:

All we have to do is replace Obama.... We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don't need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget.... We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don't need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate.[...]
Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared."
