    Let's see, Conservatives chose Benghazi and Liberals chose Watergate.

    It's not really about the ideology but rather what the real damage was. To me being obstructive about the Watergate break in was very dishonest and Nixon was in the wrong, he left office. People were killed in Benghazi and we aren't getting the truth, I don't think there was a crime committed but there is gross incompetence and we deserve to know if we failed those killed in the attack.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I don't think we will ever get the real pictutre with the media we have in this country. Each station is gonna broadcast to its bias and paint the picture they want.

    Yeah, and that's unfortunate. The administration isn't helping out either.

    Though I agree with what you said from your second sentence on, for many it IS about ideology and nothing else.

    I don't speak for everyone. I would think that most people though would be pissed about the way this is being handled though I do admit there are partisans looking to throw trash at the candidate they don't like.

    If we give him a second term, he'll probably start a senseless war in someplace like Syria that gets 4000 Americans killed.

    No lies proven. Intelligence may or may not have been faulty, not a crime.
    No lie by Obama proven.

    He broke a law, Obstruction. He resigned as president, found guilty, pardoned by Ford so as to be done with it. The end.
    right. he obstruction for the tapes. Yep, that's all he did. Everyone else fell on their swords for him, but not for the tapes.

    If you are going to speak of partisanship it helps not to say "That side only has................"
    Except when it is true of course. This is a transparent attempt to manufacture a "scandal" where at the moment one doesn't exist.

    Exactly. But I'm not sure such a fact matters to some.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
