    No, we definitely don't overestimate " Americans " and especially left leaning Americans.

    Not after 2008 and especially not after 2012. Millions proved that they're easily influenced by superficial and empty narratives and equated bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications...twice.

    So no, we take a very realistic view of the moronic constituency that continues to back the left at the expense of the rest of us.

    Whats overestimated is Hillary's chances to win the nomination and the Presidency.

    She couldn't get anyone to show up for her stupid book tour or buy her book. The Democrats she stumped for in 2014 no longerr have a job.

    She's not a " sure thing " she's a extension of the corruption, incompetence and failure of the last 7 years.

In truth, most of us have the same limitations on our family budgets, so I understand that thinking. What I don't understand is why those in DC seem to think otherwise, and I'm talking both sides of the aisle. Business also seems to be more nimble in making decisions, too; plus a CEO and his advisors can get fired almost immediately if the shareholders get irate enough, so I wonder, if government had to live under the same conditions, if we'd be in better shape financially than we are?. I think we probably would be, because of the accountability factor, and they wouldn't be allowed to keep their job until the next election, either. The only "shareholders" in government are the taxpayers, and few politicians seem to care what we think - until election time comes. Then we're suddenly important again, and the cycle continues, ad nauseum, as lots of promises are made to correct things that aren't working. Weird way to live, but I guess we're used to it.
    If I can just interject your wall...

    The banks did have billions in liabilities. Remember the bank bailouts at taxpayer expenses that Started under Bush? I'm against all bailouts: the ones authorized by Bush and Obama, but if you're going to "go there" make sure you go all the way. Both Dems and Reps gave the banks billions with no accountability.

    you think hillary was going to say something different that what her lawyer wrote on her behalf?

    ... and her attorney said it was unnecessary.
    NO
    her attorney said a PUBLIC hearing would be required

    Then Gowdy LET her choose her fate.
    NO
    gowdy got hung out to dry when his request for a private meeting was rejected by hillary via her lawyer



    The committee previously requested two appearances from Mrs. Clinton over her exclusive use of a private email during her time at the State Department: one public hearing and one private transcribed interview.

    An attorney for Mrs. Clinton said this week that a private interview was unnecessary and that the former secretary of state was willing to answer questions about her email arrangement in public.
    notice how gowdy was shot down
    hillary is calling the shots on this PUBLIC hearing
    do you have any inkling why hillary would insist on a PUBLIC hearing, contrary to gowdy's request for a private one. likely not, so stay tuned and watch what she does

    In his letter, Mr. Gowdy said a private interview still remained an option if Mrs. Clinton was concerned about the privacy implications of testifying about her email practices. He encouraged her to meet with the panel twice.....snip~
    she made gowdy her eunuch
    notice how she rejected his repeated request for a closed hearing
    notice how she rejected his appeal for a second hearing ... he "encouraged" her. this committee chair got his wings clipped. and that's just the preview of the results to expect from the 18th

    If you have something to say, use words.

    If that implies a snub at ignorant Americans be advised I am Canadian, and YES is is a major part of our culture to demand accountability, as a matter of fact a foemer Senator, Mike Duffy is on trial for fraud. No one's claiming witch hunt, it's a straight forward trial of his peers, it is what we do. We even put politicians in jail if they are bad enough, like lying under oath which is cool in "liberal Amerika".

    And you know what else genius, I am a liberal, worked for and got elected a single mom as premier of this province. I have always supported universal health care and always will, it is far superior to the genius plan concocted by the "first black president"

    Oh, btw, we have never had a black prime minister, nope, but we have had two East Indian premiers, five women premier's currently in office, and one First Nations Canadian premier.

    So while sneering though pictures you didn't even create, take care that I see you about as much a liberal as Idi Amin shouting socialist slogans and posting comics, the wolrd has passed you by. The "liberalism" your party is seeking is revisionist conservatism with a massive does of incompetence thrown in..

    and that IS American.....at least has been the last seven years

    Oh, and did you know that gay and lesbian marriage has been legal here for 18 years? Yeah.

    So take your ****ty "progressive" snobbery and park where Obama don't shine. Me and my neighbors fought these wars and won, without the need of death threats from "liberal" gay sympathizer's.

    I understand for those that don't want to know the truth they would suggest such. But trust in a government official is paramount in most peoples priority. Trustworthy Hillery, she is not.

    Then there would likely be a subpoena issued to compel her to testify.

    Trey Gowdy Asks Hillary Clinton to Testify at Benghazi Hearing in May - Washington Wire - WSJ
    That's bull**** and I can use clownhall to prove it.

    Clinton Lawyer: Request For An Interview Denied, Mr. Gowdy. - Matt Vespa

    On March 31, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)–chairman of the House Select Committee of Benghazi–requested a transcribed interview with Hillary Clinton to answer questions regarding the use of her private email system during her tenure as Secretary of State. Yesterday, the Clinton lawyers responded by saying no (via NYT):


    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s lawyer told Representative Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks, that she saw no need for a private interview over her use of a private email account while secretary of state and asked that he not delay her next appearance before the committee.

    The letter from Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, comes as she is ramping up her presidential campaign and hoping to put the controversies over her email use and the attack in Libya behind her.

    “There is no reason to delay her appearance or to have her testify in a private interview,” Mr. Kendall wrote, adding that she has already publicly answered questions about her email practices at the State Department.

    Mrs. Clinton has testified on Benghazi before House and Senate committees, and Mr. Kendall said she would be happy to discuss her email use when she testifies before Mr. Gowdy’s panel.

    Re: Hillary Clinton agrees to testify on Benghazi, emails this month

    I have said it before, unless they can prove that Hilary deliberately tried to get those Americans killed in Benghazi, I think this is a non-story.

    And I also find it incredibly hypocritical that Reps do not seem to give a care about the thousands of American and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi deaths in Operation Iraqi Freedom and it's aftermath...but they go absolutely berserk over these four American deaths in Benghazi.

    This does not just smell of partisanship hypocrisy...it absolutely reeks of it.


    And, once again, I am neither Rep nor Dem and I think Hilary would make a lousy POTUS...so I am not partisan at all on this.
