We are being treated to a good cop, bad cop routine. The Reps want to fold. Protecting our national security is a good excuse to keep the spending going.
It does, if going sleeveless is a form of expression.
The Second Amendment lays out our right to bear arms.
YOU are the one who gets the BlueRibbon!
What a wonderful way to raise a daughter! Taking on “science’ ( girls aren’t supposed to be good at that.ha).
And learning the lesson that you don’t just accept whatever they “teach”you. And learning that character and hard work and honesty is WAAAAAY more important than phony ribbons.
What a great lesson for her!
Oh, I see, that’s where Moochell gets it from. And she has mighty fine ones too.
At one juncture he tried to portray Benghazi like a police op,a robbery at a 7-11 that was thousands of miles away (supposedly)and they simply could not respond to every 7-11 that gets knocked off. Especially, when they had no idea what was going on.(so many lies there you don't know where to begin)
When asked who was in charge of the op Panetta replied, "the forces on the ground." In other words Woods,Doherty and Smith who had all been told to stand down were actually in charge of the op but didn't know that no help was ever coming.Bizarre at best.
Supposedly, no one in dc was even engaged or even there watching events happen,no one calling into see if he needed a cappuccino or a bagel,or a back rub by Lindsay Graham,just Panetta. Once again stretching believability here.
Panetta also claimed that it would have taken 8 hours to respond instead of calling in F-16's in theater that could have been there in under two hours.
Panetta lied his ass off and then twisted the rest to make it sound somewhat feasible but told just enough truth to let us know that zero was MIA once again and he actually had no one to turn to and was obviously told to stand down.
Should anyone dare to get to the bottom of the Benghazi fiasco they will undoubtedly hear that it was a CIA op and they are not allowed to talk about it--the ultimate plausible deny-ability.
My thinking was either one of two scenarios could have happened:
1. Benghazi was a hit on Stevens by CIA or others since he had been gun smuggling all over the Mid- East and knew too much and had become:
a political liability.
2. A hostage taking so they could eventually trade Stevens for the blind sheik once again:
a political situation.
Let's hope we can keep Benghazi and the death of four warriors alive since the DBM are still trying to find Ben Ghazi's house on a map...
The commercials, given the junk science (they really, really like GlobullWarming) TWC's been serving up by the cubic mile for the past ten years or so, may just be the high point of their broadcasting.
You'd get better weather guessing out of Farmer's Almanac, or just cut to the chase and use http://forecast.weather.gov
(You can dial that deal in to within fifty feet of your front door, if you don't worry too much about somebody selling the coordinates.)
I am watching Stephy and they are REALLY getting DESPERATE! HA.
when they played the clip of Eric Cantor and then followed with a Republican commenting at length....THE SOUND WENT OUT!!!( yeah, I checked the other channels, just during that segment, just on Stephy)..
Now Stephy says “ oh, yes, there’s been a lot of DISCOMFORT on the ground with the drone Strikes. Discomfort???ha.
Its very possible we may never get any traction there. These guys are just too politically astute to be beaten. They will have to self destruct and that's is taking longer than I ever dreamed.
We haven’t got the idea that we are the Party of Opposition!
In Britain you see them screaming at each other in Parliament...and the Party of opposition in other countries can get aggressive.
MTP Gregory interviewing Dick Durbin
on drones- asks Dick should we change the CIC’s ability to kill at will with drones. DIck says obama made it clear he would eliminate torture (lololol - kill em, don’t grill em). He won’t answer Gregory’s questioning about changing the policy. compliments obama for being “engaged” in providing the legal basis for drone attacks.
Menendez - should he retain his chairmanship? Mendendez has given Dick his assurance that he wasn’t involved with that stuff, other than that he can’t comment on it.
LOL. You’re absolutely right!
Yes, and the political statement that Moochelle's "bared arms" are screaming is:
"In a shouting match, I could simply beat you to death...and I just might."
You are lucky we get FNS at 2:00pm Eastern.
How is the fund raising going!!
Is FR guys almost there for the quarter?
Remember a dollar a day is hard to miss but slowly adds up for FR!!
When you have a voter base of village idiots...what do you expect them to elect?Its the un-elected you have to watch out for.
Not necessarily, what if they just keep buying our own debt until a dollar won't buy a banana.
MTP Round Table
Gersen, WaPo, rightly points out what obama is proposing to Republicans - “Give up spending cuts for tax increaes.” No Republican is going to go for that.
Mike McCurry (? I think) If obama would be willing to deal with entitlement reform, Republicans would deal with him on everything else and ignore the rest of us, Brings up that obama is ruining the immigration deal when he gets involved. Refers to Rubio and Jeb Bush as “heroes” in the immigration debate. (lolol - yep, my kind of heroes)
Who is the black dude on MTP - using phrases like Republicans showed him the back of their hand. That guys is an idiot. Says obama has shown Boeher he is willing to deal with them (???) He has a huge chip on his shoulder.
True, maybe both and they were "thinking" it would be a win/win situation regardless of the outcome.
[I woke up with a small headache, then I endured her undiluted RATaganda, now I have a full-blown ears-ringing, pounding skull-crusher.]
There is a simple solution to your dilemma, take an aspirin for your small headache and avoid anything that compounds your misery.
