  •  "Scandals"? (0+ / 0-)

    The Associated Press viewed last week's events as a bit more than scandal, IRS officials resigned and the families of those killed in Benghazi will not keep quiet, nor should they. No amount of mockery will negate this. Conservatives were right in their assessments of this administration.

      ...the others have turned out to be polluted with the slime of fake emails (faked by the GOP) and a set-up by one person at the IRS in collusion with are Republican member of the house from California).

      So...nope.

      And Benghazi...really? Bush saw 55 attacks like the one in Benghazi...13 Americans died in those attacks...and only 8 of the 55 were in Iraq (Bill O'Reilly got it totally wrong when he insisted most of those during the Bush years where in Iraq = nope)...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.

      families.  In fact, the parents of the ambassador said they didn't want his death politicized.  Those relatives are sad at losing their loved ones of course, but they understood that the jobs were dangerous.
