    I hope you are ready for your IRS audit.
    You just incriminated yourself

    Only in the liberal world is keeping more of what you earn tax fraud and evasion. It really is sad what they are teaching kids today

    and here is the article it came from.

    House Defense Bill Aims to Implement Lessons From Benghazi Attack : Roll Call Policy
    Interesting, and thanks for posting the info. Actually goes to my point, with all the now obvious lies told us by State and the admin about the event, how do we separate the wheat from the chaff. The lies from the truth, or even the lies from more lies. The waters were muddied for a purpose. Maybe to give cover for CIA continuing OPs, maybe to take the heat off a POTUS during re-election, maybe both or none.

    We may never know for sure. Might have been different had the WH simply said, "We have all our forces investigating right now and pursuing any suspects. That's all we can tell you, but I promise to come forward with details as they are safe to be made public."

    People who post on sites like this, are political junkies. They pay attention, most people do not unless something effects them personally. I think Benghazi isn't playing with the independents, too long ago and they do not understand what each side is trying to prove. I do not think the AP story will last long with them either, reporters, so what, who cares. They may even be on the side of national security on this one. Now the IRS scandal has a chance, probably a good chance of hitting home with them. Just because no one likes the IRS. The IRS is the number one boggie man out there. Feared and loathed.

    On the other hand, the Republicans aren't in that bad of shape either. According to RCP in the generic congressional vote or would you rather have a Republican or democrat represent you in congress. Democrats lead 42% to 40%. With a plus or minus of 3 points you could call it even. In the Senate, as of today the odds are on the Republicans picking up West Virginia and South Dakota from the Democrats with 4 other Democratic seats rated as toss ups. No Republican seat is in danger as of today. But with the election over a year off, these do not mean much, but it gives you an idea of where things stand today, but not November of 2014.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I believe any poll taken regarding Congress is irrelevant as Congressional elections are at the state level and not the national level. Right now there are 30 GOP Governors and economically most of the GOP states are in much better shape that the big Democrat states. Wonder how long it will take for those liberal states to realize conservative principles work.

    If the GOP doesn't fix the many things that caused it to lose last November it will continue to lose.

    Don't think so?

    Wait and see.

    That is true, state by state, district by district and with gerrymandering, the nation generic Congressional poll would seem sort of idiotic. But history has proven beyond certain numbers in that poll they are a fairly accurate measurement as to what party picks up what. People like Larry Sabato, Charlie Cook, RCP, and others do go district by district. Their latest prediction, which as I stated this far our are meaningless shows either party gaining a plus or minus of 3 seats. Looking at the generic poll, it shows basically a dead heat also. The generic congressional poll is just a tool to be used, but it is an important one. The poll is very useful in predicting sea changes in congress along with basically the status quo. In 1994 it predicted the GOP winning back the House for the first time since Eisenhower. In 2006, it indicated the Democrats would return and they did. In 2010, the poll shifted once more to the Republicans and they picked upped an amazing 63 seats. Use it as a tool it is and do not scoff at it, those who do usually get caught with their pants down.

    The polls that go district by district are much better indicators as to what is going to happen but there are few of those at this juncture but watch others here touting Congressional Approval ratings which are meaningless. There isn't a poll that I saw in 2010 that predicted the massive GOP Congressional and state house wins. The way things are going now 2014 could be even worse for the Democrats but you are right, very early. I believe the scandals and Obama's incompetence is catching up with him

    In the generic congressional poll it had the Republicans leading by 7 points. That means it would be a sea change election which is exactly what happened. I agree on the congressional approval poll, it is meaningless. Everyone likes their own congressman, but hate the other 434. You will never find any of the professional prognosticators pay the congressional approval poll a lick of sense. It means nothing.

    A more accurate reflection of what is going to happen is also the party affiliation/identify poll. This is more useful in a national election, but does hold some weight in the mid terms too.
