Republicans won't let a thing go which killed four Americans who volunteered for hazardous duty and drew extra pay for it but are quick to defend the Iraq war which killed 4500 young Americans, seriously wounded 35,000 more and the Bush administration told over 900 lies about Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction(HAHAHAHAHA) to justify invading in the first place. Can you believe that the pit bull bred assholes who ignored all that while the war was steaming and Halliburton was getting richer off American taxpayers completely denied that there were no WMD's and continued to expand the war? It's coming up on a year since those people were killed in Benghazi..........GTF over it!!

I remember the same thing when the Republicans tried for eight years to remove Bill Clinton from office and finally ended up spending $100 million to prove that he got a blowjob. They didn't remove him from office and he left with a 65% approval rating. Keep it up folks....you will just keep on losing elections.

Didn't Obama win a second term? Don't worry ....Americans can see past their fake outrage.

In the right wing echo chamber ....they always feel like their ..spin is working. Take a look at how the Dixie Chicks received death threats for being against the Iraq war.

Today ED Hong-kong Snowden is their hero for RAT-TING out the country ...and Vladimir Putin is their savior. The country can see through the fake outrage!!

GWB won a second term too... not much of a proof for your point I am thinking. There was the Iraqi Regime Change Bill signed by Bill Clinton and then at least Bush went through Congress to get their consent to take on Saddam and his believed WMDs... Obama's State Department was instructed to mislead or avoid Congressional delegates sent to find out what went on in Benghazi... so no equivalence there at all. We still have no idea what the big 0 was doing that night when he should have been all over this and trying to save our Ambassador and the three other brave souls that were depending on us to at least try....

Are you actually making a statement using the Dixie Chicks that the rest of us are to supposed to regard as credible? Wow. And if you think your side does not have its own echo chamber, that it does not spin...well, I will give you a democratic head fake and you will obviously fall for it.

You remember? Do you also remember that partisan political good little gophers say the same thing about their counter-party every four years? "I really think the other party might never win another election again!!" REALLY? Oh, goodness! I'm pretty sure Clinton said something like that too, only to be followed by 8 straight years of terrible GOP leadership.

Partisan politics = World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). I feel sorry for its ardent fans.

Just curious....if it was about lying why the Republicans release a 30,000 page report about the investigation which mentioned oral sex, sex toys like a cigar etc. Not only that the day they arrest a politician for lying you might find a few very poor people that remain electable in this country. The two groups which contain the biggest liars in the world are the congress and the church. Thank goodness church membership is on a steep decline in this country. It would be an even greater decline if it were not for poor Mexican catholics coming into the country by the million. Most youngsters are wising up to the GAWD, JEEZUS story.

Why do you think it was ok for the President to lie under oath in a legal proceeding? Don't you respect the legal system?

Really? Last I heard the President wasn't answerable to Congress absent proof of "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" of which oral sex with the young lady was NOT. Who did he lie to again under oath? No one, although the Independent Prosecutor Ken Starr of "Whitewater" fame alleged he did.

GWB won a second term too... not much of a proof for your point I am thinking.

Name a President who ran but was not re-elected during a period of "war?"

As for the OP's issue? Hyperbole. Both parties do this crap when the Executive Office is held by the opposing party. It's just business as usual, no big deal.

I can see you need a little enlightening on the events. From 1993 when Bill Clinton was inaugurated the Republicans immediately began investigating every little thing about the Clintons. The first big investigation was about Bill and Hillary's part in a property development in Arkansas named Whitewater. Every move the man made was criticized for two terms. The Republicans couldn't stand him because he was the most popular president since FDR. They never quit. When they announced that they would impeach him all the Democrats in the congress walked out of the capitol building. After the house , impeachment Larry Flynt(Hustler magazine) paid millions for information about Republicans who had done worse and newspapers printed stories about GA congressman Bob Barr, a pro life soapbox preacher paying for an abortion for his first wife while he was already dating his second and Mr. Livingston from LA had to resign his new appointment as speaker of the house after serving in that position for two weeks. Also Mr Harry Hyde was caught in an extra marital affair after more than 20 years had passed. He did not run for reelection.

Not only that Flynt announced that he had more that he could release and would watch the senate trial closely to decide whether or not to release it.....that was the smartest move he made because every crooked son-of-a-bitch there had something to hide so they voted to leave Clinton in office.

Conclusion:

Clinton remained in office and left with a 65% approval rating.

You folks need a major wake up call. Romney won two demographics....white men and folks over 65. Since whites will soon be a minority in America and since folks over 65 are dying 100 times faster than voters under 30 if you don't change your ways the only way you will win a national election in the future is by cheating or gerrymandering.

It is you that needs some enlightening. Clinton lied under oath when giving a deposition. For that he was disbarred and impeached but not convicted. If you have no respect for the legal system that depends on people being truthful, then that is your issue. I don't dispute Clinton's political skills or his popularity, but you claimed that he was gone after because of a BJ and that simply is not true.

As for the rest of your diatribe. If it walks and talks like a hack, then so be it.

The bottom line is that the Republicans connived and plotted and spied on Bill and Hillary Clinton for eight years, cost the taxpayers $100 million and all they could come up with was the same kind of personal horse **** that all the Republicans had been doing themselves. I especially liked them catching that goddam fake pro lifer from GA paying for an abortion for his first wife after he was already involved with his second one. Republicans deny sex and Democrats brag about it.

Can you believe that the pit bull bred assholes who ignored all that while the war was steaming and Halliburton was getting richer off American taxpayers completely denied that there were no WMD's and continued to expand the war?

WMDs was only he 3rd reason for invasion, not the main reason. The main reason was that Saddam was about to base his oil off the Euro instead of the US dollar, which would have been disastrous for us. Reason #2 was the Kuate invasion as Kuate was an ally at the time. The WMD thing is just what the media ran with for their ratings.

Before you cry about all the soldiers who died in war, think of all the civilians who died in Chicago since that war, that your current President comes from Chicago, and is trying to pass laws to make that death toll even worse.

I'm glad you didn't say "keep it up folks the way Clinton did" ... that would've been inappropriate ...

I remember playing golf with these three very conservative guys during the Clinton thing and they clearly hated Clinton, but to a man didn't care that he lied about the affair ... Their take was if you're going to do stuff like that, of course you lie about it ... dah? funny how these things work ...

but, yes, he was wrong to lie under oath.

I'm sorry, how is this different that lying to congress about WMD to start a war that killed 4500 of our brave soldiers? How do you draw a parallel between justifying a war and a failed diplomatic security issue? Unreal!

Its really a pendulum swing, every so many years the pendulum swings to the right or left &
one side gets labeled "nut cases" and the other gets to stand as the righteous defenders of AMERICA.
its a game, total insanity! WE THE PEOPLE need to totally abandon the "Democratic" & "Republican"
party fiasco and move on, the Donkey & Elephant are obsolete!
