If you're going to ignore the facts and just post the usual insults and "it's all Obama's fault" blather, what's the point of responding to you? Have fun.

Re: Hell freezes over

Since this thread is about the comments made on MSNBC, ABC, and CBS about Benghazi, your attempts at misdirection don't hold water. But I do find it amusing that you and Wabash feel the need to support Ford. Glad you calmed down. After that last post I thought we were gonna have to put your spleen ...

Re: IRS went after right wing groups.

Speaking of targeting, the teabaggers should quit complaining and just bring their guns to their next anti-IRS rally and use the tax code for target practice, that should do the trick.

Re: Hell freezes over

Americans were lied to for 3-4 weeks Omar...Big problems with what we were being told. Like I said, I just can't conjur the faux moral indignation over this like the right can. Americans were lied to for years about Iraq and WMD, and thousands of Americans died because of those lies. Saddam had no ...

Sorry, I just can't get as exercised over this as all you drama queens are. As has been pointed out, dozens of Americans, "heroic" or not, have been killed in embassy and consulate attacks in recent years and nary a peep was heard from you all...now some bad guys kill 4 Americans on Obama's watch an...

It matters to Congressional Republicans because it's a way to get at Hillary, period.

What do you think, Luca...how does this rate on the shameful/tawdry scale compared to lying about getting some oral sex?

You really want to know what I guess?

I guess conservatives talk a good game about personal responsiblity, but when it comes to standing up to their children many don't hesitate to blame their lack of parenting skills on liberals...lame.

Luca, It's really not worth going on and on about this, I don't think either of us is going to change the other's mind.

Re: Everything you know about austerity is wrong

You believe that the bombs were dropped not to end the war, but merely "because we could"? Ending the war and minimizing the ultimate number of casualties was not the goal? Harry Truman just wanted to kill a couple hundred thousand Japanese because he could? No, of course not. What in the world wou...

What's wrong with using test scores to find out if the kids are really getting the subjects, and if the teaching methods, and teachers, are effective in getting the material across??

Hooked on Phonics has proven to be very little more than expensive toys for kids. $200 for each kid with limited usefulness seems a bit expensive, don't you think? I thought you were against all the heavy duty spending on education? Sylvan method is great for individual tutoring; not for classes of...
