    Now you've done it... You played right into his hand. Changing the subject to slam conservatives/republicans is their goal, and you have just allowed him to make this about "Bush", rather than about the IRS and Lerner.

    I'm affraid I'm going to have to deduct 2 points...

    I don't think Scooter ever did go to jail. His sentence was commuted by Bush.

    Maybe obstruction is but not saying anything in email isn't obstruction.

    For precisely the reason she told her colleagues not to say anything in email. The Republicans will distort and misrepresent everything and anything. Better to say nothing and let them just make-up stuff to than to give them something they can lie about.

    If you instruct your personell to omit information from public record, because it could be used as evidence of illegal activity, it's obstruction of justice.

    That makes no sense. How can something never said or written be viewed as obstruction? Thought police?

    You'd have a point if it was said or written and then was destroyed or hidden. And then you have to prove it's existence.

    No he did go to jail, and it had nothing to do with Valerie. He found to have nothing to do with releasing her name as originally charged. He was given 2yrs for giving a false statement on something not even pertaining to the original charge. I could careless about Libby but the man was railroaded there is no two ways about it.
