    That's when you know you have a good candidate: when the worst her political opponents can come up with is a string of abstract invective and something about her being a Native American.

    I wish the GOP had spent this much energy investigating Bush for the ridiculous war in Iraq and the 4,000+ brave American soldiers it cost. Or the many other brave soldiers that have died in Afghanistan for nothing (strategically).


    IMO, this is little more then GOP desperation. They lost on Obamacare, they seem as clueless on the economy as the Dems and they realize that since the Fed basically controls the economy AND that the Fed is in the WH's back pocket; that the Fed just has to ramp up QE before the mid-terms to artificially stimulate the economy and give the Dem's the edge.

    In other words, the Reps know that the Dems are in the driver's seat and this is all the Reps (IMO) have.

    I sincerely do not believe the GOP leaders care that much about those that died at Benghazi...because they sure did not seem to care this much about thousands of Americans dying in Iraq/Afghanistan. They just smell some political blood...and they are hungry.


    Additionally, I also feel that freaking out about those 4 that died in Benghazi while the Rep leaders allowed thousands of Americans to die overseas is hypocrisy.

    Heya DA. Question.....who has more dead under him in Afghanistan. Bush or BO?

    Also why Can't Bo call an attempted kidnapping for what it is in another country, but would look to lie and call it a carjacking?

    Oh, how ironic. The poor democrats being mislead. That's a good one. Yeah, like they made these seperate reports for the democrats only, and of course they just swallowed it up. We know the dems never question anything the repulicans say. Is it possible to have any more holes in this lie?

    I guess you need a translation. She's a liar.

    I'm fine with them investigating.

    And let's face it - how many votes do you think it would get them that they wouldn't already get anyway? They aren't that stupid. This isn't to gain votes.


    The families, of course, are partisan hacks.

    anyone whosoever questions anything done or said by anyone who has ever met Obama is a partisan hack.

    I have never seen an admission of error to any degree on the part of anyone associated with the White House nor any of their supporters.

    What is sounding like desperation is not this inquiry, but the constant rant of "old news" and whiny little protests that it's all persecution from Obamhaters.

    A woman who has admitted harassing political opponents through the IRS has lied to congress and now refuses to testify. A silly, childish, and easily demolished lie about the assassinations of four people serving their government is masked behind bleats of partisan witch hunts, while the president who has boasted the most open and accountable government in the HISTORY of the nation hides behind underlings and things that slither like Jay Carney, and the fawning few left top idolize merely bleat "unfair"

    Anyone honest with nothing to hide would open the books and make fools of the accusers, if they weren't hiding a ton of other ****.

    I did not ever think I would see the day to see Democrats behaving worse than Nixon Republicans......

Funny how that hardly made the news.

    Hello Polgara.

    Mornin Moot. Not all Republicans voted to go to Iraq either. There were 7 of them that didn't. One Senator and 6 Congressmen. Most of them were Liberty Republicans or Moderates. There is only one left still in the House.



    The House members who got it right were Ron Paul, John Duncan, Amo Houghton, John Hostettler, Jim Leach, and Connie Morella. The lone senator was Lincoln Chaffee.

    Only Duncan is still in Congress. For all the success the antiwar right seems to have had, it’s worth remembering that very few of the liberty-movement Republicans now serving have been tested to the degree those seven were. The Republican non-interventionist caucus has had to be rebuilt, and what it looks like today is quite different from what it was in 2002. Certainly it’s more philosophically unified. About half of the original AUFM “no” votes were moderates representing blue states or blue districts. For the most part, they’ve been replaced in office by Democrats.....snip~

    Years of public service and all you can come up with is the Native American claim? Seriously? Think about how awesome it would be if you had a conservative candidate whose professional and public life dated back to the seventies and the only thing Democrats could (feebly) tar him with was an uncertain claim to Irish ancestry?

    And the Cherokee/Deleware claim wasn't a lie. She grew up with her family telling her she had those ties, and it's pretty much the most believable, innocuous claim one could make. Really think about it: if that's the worst you have on her, she rocks.
