“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.
My comments about this guy is that his response here is the same as it has been on every other thing that has come along. Whaaaaaaaaat? I never knew! It wasnt my fault! The sun was in my eyes. My dog ate my homework It wasnt my fault! This guy is Jake Blues pleading with Carrie Fisher.
So tell us...who authorized Fast and Furious? Cuz....that will not stand. Who fed the bull**** stories about Benghazi? Cuz...by golly...we should get to the bottom of this. Who.......

These days politics are all about money and manipulation.
Obama has taken manipulation and straight up lying to an entirely new unprecedented level.
Doing a good job Brownie, deliberate twisting of 'intel'- who took the hit for that???? It seems highly selective to look this hard at Obama when BushII seemed so blissfully unaware of the debacle of Katrina, the 'massaging' of intel, Who told the BS stories about Saddam???? and then the horrid condition men who were wounded in a war BushII pushed hard for spent night and day in....
Whine and carry on as you wish, I'd expect little else, but it seems CONs forget about the times GOP leaders lie and ignore malfeasance....
Reagan had 138 administration officials investigated, indicted or convicted... the most of any administration up until that time.
We all know Iran/Contra which had most of the major players pardoned by BushI.
But there was the HUD bid rigging scandal that had 16 people convicted of fraud and bid rigging for GOP donors.
Lobbying scandal where Reagan's Chief of staff (Deaver) and press sec, (Nofziger) were convicted
EPA scandal where 20 administration officials were removed from office for influence peddling for industry or punishing or rewarding employees based on their personal politics. Sewergate was the funneling of superfund money to politicians in order to help with re-elections.
Head of the EPA, Ms. Burford refused to release documents on the superfund, was found in contempt of congress and resigned.
Inslaw affair where the DOJ was accused of stealing software and then forced the parent company into bankruptcy which successive AGs refused to investigate or appoint a special prosecutor. two officials held in contempt of Congress.
Savings and Loan scandal (Keating 5) where 747 institutions failed costing the taxpayer 160B. it set a record as the costlest case of public malfeasance, and laceny making the Teapot Dome scandal seem minor.
Debategate when Carter's debate prep book somehow got to Reagan before the debate- James Baker says Bill Casey (of Iran/Contra fame) denies that.
But of course Reagan knew NOTHING of any of it to include the scandals involving those closest to him...
Everyone hated Bush yet he talked and gave interviews and was repeatedly criticized, yet he lets that little snot Carney speak for him?
Carney makes Obama look like Edward Snowden...
Too many people are making this about politics, Obama is absolutely responsible as in Shinseki(sp?) and they are the guys who need to fix this problem as rapidly as possible. However don't believe for a minute that a simple change of faces either at the VA or the White House would really change much, the exact same kind of story broke when Bush was President at Walter Reed Hospital.
Folks looking to use this as grounds for a shift in political leaders aren't looking for a solution, just a "win" for their side. Don't loose sight of the real issue.
