    Washington's history is chock full of party-line votes that had nothing to do with either truth or morality.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Oh, okay. That's why we have "special prosecutors." That makes sense.

    Yep. Those are the cats that get appointed to investigate and prosecute any time there's a significant conflict of interest. Kinda like how judges will sometimes be called in from outside a jurisdiction where a matter so hot or so dirty has to be overseen that no local judge can or will touch it with a 10-foot pole.

    Much as Holder has been a piss poor excuse for an Attorney General... I find it so ironic whenever congress in general tries to go after anyone.

    It is one of the most corrupt institutions on Earth, whether it's the President, a baseball player who's been juicing, or the attorney general.

    Congress as a unitary body should not be allowed to sit in judgement of anyone.

    They are just as corrupt scum as the people they go after.

    The Gallup daily tracking poll for November 5th 2013 puts Obama’s approval at 39 percent, with 53 percent disapproving of his job performance.

    By comparison, polling for the first week of November in 2005 had Bush’s approval at 40 percent, with 55 percent disapproving of his job performance."

    Five years in, Obama and Bush poll numbers nearly identical

    Obama's rating is actually worse than Bush's at this point.
    Eh? Bush had 55 disapproval and Obama 53.. how can Obama's be worse?

    Oh, give him some time. Apparently he's just been practicing up until now.

    That's fine if you don't know what Unitary Executive Theory is, expected actually considering your partisanship. Do you have an 8 year old child or perhaps is your pet dog or cat available? I'd like to raise the level of discussion and you aren't capable of that.

    You're really reaching there. Approval - Obama 39. Bush 40..

    Republican is not a "good choice."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
