  •  It really galls me (11+ / 0-)

    that the GOP has cut back money for DoS, specifically money for security of overseas facilities and they then use the security breaches that inevitably flow from that to beat up the DoS. And that Hillary doesn't make that the center of her response, rather, she takes responsibility for a situation she's not actually responsible for except in the abstract. It's honorable on her part, but it is strategically wrong.
    It's good that Pat Leahy is stepping up. I wish he'd do it in some splashy way that the Media can't ignore, but he has been subdued since he received a letter full of anthrax and an impossible directive from Cheney. I can't understand why....
    But I guess what peeves me most is that this is a bullsh!t waste of Congress's time, a waste of Clinton's time, it's a grandstand operation with the single goal of damaging Obama and Clinton as much as possible for what they think will be their political gain.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
