    As to the biased media, do you suppose for even a single second that these findings will be given as much publicity as the maligning accusations they've all made against Christie?

    Ha! Not a chance in hell. I suspect that this'll be back page news, effectively buried.

    There's a huge difference

    When Christie investigates himself, the right believes it

    Yep, just like that...Don't confuse, I am not a Christie supporter...But this is the era that Obama created....Christie would have never tried this sort of 'internal' crap had he not seen Obama get away with it since 2009.

    They really do believe everything is Obama's fault. Definitely the party of personal responsibility, these guys.

    And you really do buy the lame excuses coming out of the administration....Definitely the party of no responsibility, and incompetence.

    And when Obama investigates himself, via his DOJ and his AG, the left believes it. I'm not seeing your huge difference here.

    It's only acceptable when Liberals investigate themselves and find no wrong doing. When a Republican does it, it's obviously just BS and he's guilty as hell.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    YOu didn't see the media reporting on this story, even though it did, so what you see and don't see is not particularly relevant.

    Which one? The IRS one is still "ongoing" but it seems as if the House's MO when it comes to investigations is to throw out tons of charges, collect information, and when they don't find the evidence to support their charges it fizzles out.

    As for the Obama administration not being cooperative. I guess I'd need some examples? It seems like this is the cycle for every "scandal" of the Obama Administration.

    Something is found...no matter what it's linked to Obama and his administration....there tends to be a lot of speculation and conspiracy theories. Investigations occur and lots of sound bites from House Republicans and Senators. The investigators don't find anything to support the speculation and conspiracy theories. Republican House members and Senators say the reason nothing was found is because stuff is being hidden.

    I mean...it's hard to take those investigations seriously.

    IRS investigation is presently stonewalled by Lerner only pleading the 5th regardless of which question is asked, although I've heard that a appointing special prosecutor is being considered.

    Benghazi is effectively stonewalled by the administration alone.
