    AP...Which I find ironic because it's going to be damaging not because of what but because of who.

    That having been said; I think Benghazi is going to hang around Hillarys neck like an albatross; ruining her chances in 2016. The IRS thing is just a burp.

    So it has been written....So it shall be done.

    Benghazi, unless something of substance appears, is a yawn for the public. The moderates and liberals seem to think it's nothing. So that's useful only for rallying the faithful.

    The other two are actually seriously wrong, possibly criminal. Those have some power, particularly if it can be shown that the WH knew about the IRS actions.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Don't you think in all the desperate scrambling for an Obama scandal the right wing media is making the administration scandal proof.

    I am not even in the states and i'm sick of hearing about 'scandals'?

    I think something real and substantial could get by in all this chaff, I also include the birther stuff in this.

    The boy who cried wolf is a relevant tale of caution.

    I was going to write something substantive but I realised it's futile.

    I don't want another Clinton, but a woman would be good. I'm sick of these bought and paid for corporate -expletive-.

    GIVE ME A REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT.



    Elizabeth Warren would be great if she got blocked on EVERYTHING but banking regulation, I'd take that deal in an instant.

    Democracy is dead, and it seems we're running out of time to revive it.

    I doubt any of them are really going to harm the administration other than be distractions. The AP scandal doesn't even implicate Eric Holder (much less the president) since he recused himself from the investigation.

    Hopefully heads will roll and we'll be done with it. The faux outrage over Benghazi (and over talking points no less) is growing more tiresome by the day.

    Their donors won't let them impeach Obama, they want the grand "bargain".

    I would have to say Benghazi. Lives were taken while Obama sat and and dithered like a slack jawed fag. He was either too weak to protect American citizens or he was covering something up. At any rate he can't hide the stench of his actions forever. Like skunk stink--the smell is going to get out.

    The AP fiasco, simply because it doesn't look like the White House was aware of the IRS's actions and because Benghazi appears to be incompetence but not malice.

    P.S. Edit: However, if there was data collection going on, there's a very good chance it was legal thanks to the overreach codified by the Patriot Act. So it'll be amusing to see politicians fuming and frothing while they refuse to undue the very legislation that enabled this kind of data gathering.

    Sounds familiar.

    Benghazi is sensationalism, there's so many things to criticise Obama for yet you miss the real points and try this hyperbole?

    Watergate was described as a third rate break in.
    It occurred in 1972, Nixon resigns in 1974, took a little bit of time for the weight of the thing to have real political effect.
    Its that second term jinx...

    The whisper on Benghazi is that the Administration the White House was involved with gun running, supplying weapons to rebels and Muslim Brotherhood, which is why the consulate was targeted. But all this is unsubstantiated unless someone is willing to testify under oath, and name names.
    Now thats hyperbole.
