    You can't produce legitimate facts on what you claim, so I no longer buy a single word you say.
    I can go further than that….according to recent polling:

    those who want more hearings on the IRS = 70%
    Those who want more hearings on Benghazi = 69%

    Those numbers obviously include a large number of democrats.

    @Stan T: Another lie. USahole’s record is INTACT!

    No posts at all from USAhole since 3:12 edt. Must be on the little yellow bus on the way from school. With his Obama lunchbox and Biden thermos.

    Jeopardy Question .. what words were heard while walking by MSNBC headquarters

  • Ratboy

    It should be jail time for some residents of the white house because THEY KNEW!!!!!

    WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department’s inspector general told senior Treasury officials in June 2012 he was auditing the Internal Revenue Service’s screening of politically active organizations seeking tax exemptions, disclosing for the first time on Friday that Obama administration officials were aware of the matter during the presidential campaign year.

    @Hockey4um: I think if Lorne Michaels was given a job Producing MSNBC, it may stand a chance. He and Leno are the only ones making NBC money.

  • Ralph Hahn

    …and they’re getting rid of Leno…again. I’m not a big fan of Jay, but he’s been screwed around a lot by NBC. And, he only gives them TV’s most-watched late night talk show.

    Even the Stupid are seeing the real Obama!!

    Even Piers? CNN’s Morgan Goes Sour on Obama

    The same CNN host who slobbered back in 2011, “A lot of things are just perfect about Barack Obama,” is now taking the President to task for lack of transparency.

    Two nights in a row, CNN’s Piers Morgan whacked the Obama administration for promising transparency before three scandals revealed that promise to be broken at best. “[T]he real problem for Barack Obama, it seems to me, as the President, is that he promised to be different. He promised to be transparent. None of this looks very transparent, does it?” Morgan pressed on his Wednesday night show.

  • Ratboy

    But some just stay STUPID!!!

    MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Ludicrously Claims Small Biz Backs ObamaCare

  • Sicilian Papa

    O. knew about all that is happening at the IRS, DOJ and the coverup in Benghazi.

    Look, some of these things go on in all Administrations on a much smaller scale. Also with less intent to harm.

    O. and his Chicago crowd are hard core radical leftists. They do not care if they engage in these types of activities. The end justifies the means and the end is destroy any opposition to radical liberalism.

    Did you hear the snarky answers from that Miller character today. He is almost laughing about using the IRS to intimidate and hassle political opposition.

    I wonder if the dumb a$$ knows that 29 States have R’s for govs and 1 independent

    Correction. There are currently 30 Republican governors, 19 Democratic, one Independent.

    In 24 of those 30, Republicans control legislatures.

    Also of note that the GOP won The House in 2010 by the greatest party victory in decades. Not to mention that a Republican won the Presidency in 2000 and 2004. Certain people probably don’t remember that far back because they were still in elementary school.

    I’m not seeing how the GOP is a “DONOSAUR”.

    Unless by DONOSAUR, he means “the greatest party ever”!!!

    @Ralph & Rat

    One leaves the other pops up. How cute! One in the same?

  • Sicilian Papa

    They asked that Miller guy if he kept any notes. A smirking Miller replied “I don’t know.”

    Really, a bureaucrat without notes?

    @Zeus: I always thought of us-ahole as more of a “house plant” than a conservative one.

    I wouldn’t even give him that much. He’s more like that smelly mold that grows on cheese. You can cut it off, but it keeps growing back as stinky as ever.

  • Chriscee

    He – it can’t spell either
