Obama admitted today that the WH sent Rice out to lie about Benghazi. Did he just seal his own fate?
That is insane --there is a complete word for word run down printed in the Washington Post because McCain is lying about the facts or merely don't know the facts or is just taking lying pop shots. Get the facts and truth.

This investigation is not over and there is some speculating wild stories. I don't believe anything McCain says about anything. This is a man who could not defend his own family when Bush and Rove knocked him out of the race in 2000 with lies about his adopted daughter. You cannot defend your family you can't no one.

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.
And there you have it --the election. I don't know which dingbat your talking about but the one lives in my city the FBI removed boxes of top secret files from Broadwell's home. Why would any lover give his lover top secret files that had to do with Libya? What was so important in those files and what were the republicans up too. The republicans were so sure and positive they were going to win this election. They were shocked they did not. So you have two things so far republicans believing they were going to be in office and hiding top secret info.

The info was not just about hanky panky--there was top secret info that the republicans in the security cabinet are furious about they did not receive from Cantor, and FBI.

All that is being picked up by the media is the hanky panky but the top secret info is that --secret and under investigated.

But why has the wind shifted--why are there now republicans coming out and publicly supporting the president who they always spoke against for 4 years. Who were quick and vocal to criticize when the president opened his eyes that he opened them wrong, so to speak. Why do you have republican governors supporting the prez. Why do you have governors who voiced secession now change their minds and say no.

As my grandpappy used to say..there is something blowing in the wind and it isn't just air.

Why can't you seem to prove there WAS a "deception?"

I'm all for an investigation, too, but I know that won't happen in the damn GOP House. They've done NOTHING but play politics with this in hopes of discrediting the President, who was NOT RESPONSIBLE for Consular security.

Get someone objective to investigate fairly and honestly, that's fine. Not what your side wants, though.

You're right. But America might have even been more right when they said the same thing about Pelosi and Reid.

McConnell's only priority for the last 3 1/2 years was making sure that Obama was a one-tern president.
Not jobs. Not the debt. Not America.

One billion dollars shoved down the old rat hole of Republican politics and it couldn't get it done.

The Koch brothers are suing.

It shouldn't, my father felt that way during his lifetime (73) and he died 23 years ago.

I haven't seen any improvement since.

If Mitch and his merry band of obstructionists don't get their collective acts together, they may find themselves on the outside looking in "Romney-style"

McCain the same guy who left his first wife on a gurney on her way to having surgery for cancer to run off with the rich woman in Arizona.

How he got to be an honorable man is beyond the pale. Let's also not forget McCain was a central figure in a Congressional Corruption Case, the Keating 5, that saw a number of participants jailed. McCain was speared, something to do with a source of mystery providing the FBI information to help with their prosecution. When the smoke cleared, McCain was slapped on the wrist by the House Ethic Committee.

Lying isn't beyond McCain, he's an accomplished liar it's part of his history in Congress.
