Well NBC is out of the blocks with Hillary won today.

Stephanie

WTF did she do to her hair? OMG

O don't know, give his a probationary testing interval see how we works out.

Sue

Stephanie,

Lol

CT @ 10:13

Given this President, yes.

Anything he'd voluntarily sign into law has to be assumed to be bad for the country at this point.

narciso

Goggles they do...

And the daily mail is in the tank, for all their whining over the chilcott inquiry, pretending that londonistan would have turned out another way.

maryrose

Of course NBC calls her successful
I thought she came off badly throughout the day
Not her best performance
She gets a D from me

narciso

Abc was passible, but cbs and the peacock network were in the tank, of course Brian William was there.

peter

Just want to wish narciso a Happy Belated Birthday. You're one of the Seven Pillars of JOM.

Centralcal on iPad

Stephanie: are you sure that's hair and not a plastic helmet of some sort?

Centralcal on iPad

Oh golly - I guess I am late to the party! Happy Birthday dearest narciso!

narciso

She still went full costanza for long stretches,

Well, that certainly simplifies the role of Speaker. "Ladies and Gentlemen . . . take a long break."

Always a good day when

-- For the record, I don't have any problem sending the President a bill he'll veto . . . but is that really a goal?--

When Speaker Fife, Majority leader Otis and whip Gomer are wearing the badges just not shooting themselves is a good day's work.
Making Barry T Bass sign his X is gravy.

narciso

I have put down my cutlass for the day. Autocorrect is very incurious.

maryrose

Will congress over rule Bammy on defense bill?

The Infamous Ignatz

Hillary didn't have a computer in her SoS office?
WH spox explains;

I mean, we’ve only had – email’s a relatively new beast, shall we say, and – or a new creation.

I think this is where he's supposed to say "that's our story and we're stickin to it".

narciso

Doesn't matter, they would have shown up in her phone or pda.

Good God. I've used email for over 30 years.

The Infamous Ignatz

How Paul Ryan and those darned FC guys made nice.

jimmyk

Well NBC is out of the blocks with Hillary won today.

God forbid they should actually report on (or care about) the substance of the hearings. It's all about the politics.

The Infamous Ignatz

But over in the senate the intransigents are up to no good again as those firebrands Cruz, Lee and Rubio? accuse the Senate leadership of lying about repealing Barrycare.
I certainly hope no Dems are upset by their rhetoric, but of course why should they be?
The Mutant Turtle Brigade will be sure to tuck them in and read them bedtime stories like the one where the Republican Care Bears slay the evil Tea Baggers.

narciso

Yes keep the death panels in, what could go wrong.

The Infamous Ignatz

NBC can say what they want but seems to me that video issue will be seen as one of those issues that leaves a stain that doesn't wash out, even with BillyJeff approved industrial bleach...a stain that gets a little darker each time she tries to wash it.

A calculated, bald faced lie in a box canyon of evidence and spread like a dishonorable shroud over the caskets of the dead.
Lee Atwater would have put her in her own casket with that alone.
I feel like Brandon De Wilde;
"Lee, come back. Come back Lee!....Lee!"

Paula

So 600 requests for security in Libya never made it to Hillary? What I can't understand is why she wasn't furious about not being made aware of it. You'd think she'd have fired the person who didn't bring it to her attention.

I like it--Hillary now as Lady Macbeth. Only without the conscience.

GUS

She is so fucking imcompetent that NOTHING is her fault. That's what they are going with. The MFM is so in the tank that mountains of evidence that Rodham is a PROFESSIONAL LIAR, matters.

GUS

Lady McDeath mayhaps.

GUS

It's a game for FUKTARDS. Look at the WeeDrunkenPrix. Dead Americans and a CONSPIRACY to cover up the malfeasance and incompetence is not taken seriously. It's obvious. The cover-up and destruction of e-mails. It's obvious. The use of a private server for the express purpose of HIDING government business. It's obvious. The Fukwads like DOUCHEBAG know it. They aren't THAT STUPID. They ARE that DISHONEST and that EVIL. God help them when push comes to shove.

DublinDaveForever

Conservatives had an Iron lady in Margaret thatcher....I believe Hillary Clinton is our titanium cu*t.

Um...ok...guess that's how Willy got Bent...once....about nine months before Chelsea was hatched.

DublinDaveForever

From a character stand point,these debates and hearings do show the metal of the different Presidential candidates.HRC gets grilled for 11 hours and walks away alert,awake and unscathed. Donald Trump and Ben Carson can't handle a 2 hour friendly debate where all they have to do is speak every 15 minutes.

Ben carson"I'm tiwed,its too boo boo looooong"


Donald trump:"My feet hurted"

GUS

The 4 dead Americans didn't get tired, they got DEAD. And RODHAM has covered it up.
Wow. How fucking sick are FUKWADS like WeeDouchebag. Very.

DublinDaveForever

I think anyone with an objective bone in their body will recognize the mistake Republicans made with this marathon grilling. By going after Hillary for 11 hours and failing to bring her down you've actually mythologized her.Every Liberal,even the ones that didn't care for her are now in awe of her.Big mistake.In one day you've made Liberals fall in love with Hillary Clinton,something Hillary Clinton has been unable to do for 30 years.

But you've also advertised to the world that this is a bitch who does not rattle.And that as a campaign ad for President of the United States is something that all the super pac money in the world can't buy.There are Republicans who now begrudgingly respect Hillary Clinton just because of her survival chops.

I should work for Republicans.I'm just so smart that sometimes I floor myself.

Rattle cuffs, she huffs and puffs.

Heh, she's so unrattled she hasn't hired a defense attorney yet.

Stop using the English language, you ignorant Mick fuck. Try Gaelic or some other pre literate utterance that the low classes grovel in.

Ride, Cap'n, ride, across the startled plane.

If fishes were bourses, Duda couldn't swim.

Please, let his and their deeds muffle him and his.

Meanwhile, everyone is ignoring Obama's attack on the First Amendment via the video. That's what he was up to that evening, and crossing flyover country to Vegas next dawn.

Because Janet Reno is her FATHER.

Sick, our country is in the toilet. Hussein and his HAG wife Bitchelle, and the CLINTOON CARNIVAL. What happened?

She mighta been pretty.

Search FAS, Gus.

Extraneus

I think DublinDave is right. She probably won over a lot of libs yesterday.

James D.

Cecil @ 10:51 PM

If the goal is to prevent Obama from doing more harm to the country, then, yes, absolutely, sending him any bills he will sign without a fight is clearly far. If he's happy with it, then it's guaranteed to be something that will hurt the economy or damage national security or under,one the Constitution further. We've got seven years of a track record to prove that.

More broadly, sending things they know Obama will veto should ideally be only one part of a larger, coordinated Republican strategy, which would include legislation as only one tool among many. And it could have differing goals based on the issue - trying to move public opinion is one, or forcing vulnerable Dem legislators to cast tough votes, or putting forward bills that. benefit one Dem interest group over another, creating and exploiting wedges within their party.

These guys are supposed to be the professionals. They're the experienced, veteran chess-masters while we're the crazed, pajama-wearing, basement-dwelling hobbits. Why can't they figure this stuff out for themselves?

Captain Hate on the iPad

Speaking of ideological purity, 404 just defunded the military because domestic spending wasn't increased enough and moving terrorists from Gitmo to the U.S. wasn't included. Why do people here buy into the purity crap which is peddled by the MFM and RINOs when 404 demands complete capitulation on everything placed in front of him?

rse

I recommend reading that Paul Mirengoff point on Ryan. Hiss vision of the House as an instrument for positive government innovations suggests that he may not be a Leftist but he does believe in the progressive idea of governments as guiding society.

He doesn't want genuinely conservative Congressmen objecting to this affirmative agenda merely because it is anathema to a majority of their constituents. Progressive and authoritarian and not a dimwit like Boehner. Just imagine the mischief he and Mcconnell can do.

Captain Hate on the iPad

I'm sure not in the chorus here that thinks only Paulie can do the job. Not at all.

Robin, outside the 10 square miles of LaLa Land

If my FB feed is any indicator, Ex, you are correct about the liberals being won over by her performance yesterday. She swayed some Sanders supporters to believing that she is the best person to deal with the "crazy GOP."

Marlene

Good Morning! We drove up to the cabin yesterday to close it for the winter. :(
I just caught up on all the comments about Hillary. Speaking of bitches,Ebola nurse Kaci Hickox has filed a lawsuit against the state of NJ,for forcing her into quarantine.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Speaking of Sanders, has anybody listened to that shithead speak? He sounds like a gibbering moron whose dentures don't fit. Even by the extremely low standards of the donks he sounds like somebody who isn't all there.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Robin, how about the DoE pushing schools to have Undocumented Week to make illegal aliens feel more in charge of things at home.

Marlene

Well,now that I've had coffee,and finished reading the Bangor Daily,the lawsuit has been filed against Gov.Christie and other officials.The ACLU is involved.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Where was the ACLU when the film maker that 404, Rice, Rodham and Bowel blamed for Benghazi was jailed?

danoso

So I guess it's OK now to play politics with Benghazi right, as it was conclusively proven yesterday the Administration was doing that from Day One (hell, minute one).

Dee Leist

Is not the e- mail Hillary wrote to family about two Officers being killed by Al- Queda while attack still unresolved "born classified"?
I thought there was no classified E-mails???

rse

ch-fits with all the language about how not speaking English should not be a factor in how well someone does in the classroom. Remember these pushes are all on top of treating tracking itself, even in high school, as a civil rights violation.

I am working on Harvard law prof's work from 1991 where she is creating the narrative for an affirmative rights agenda. It is interesting as it is building on the fall of the Berlin Wall so of course it is the West that needs to change. I can see where she is wrong, but most of the law students would not. I think the more prestigious the undergrad or grad school the easier it is to get students to simply absorb the desired worldview. Students assume believing x comes with being part of the elite that ran the gauntlet and got in against the odds.

Let's just say I have been in some programs in recent weeks for some pretty famous schools and all of them are emphasizing that documented status will have no effect on right to go for free or with a substantial reduction. Students in red's age group who are already at college have told me that the Posse students are increasing their profile every year and are pushing an affirmative rights agenda now.

Back to an OECD doc that came out yesterday and started with the passage that "in the past, education was about teaching students something."

How prescient I was to have figured out it was targeting "values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors" several years ago.

Poll: NRA more popular than Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton

It was a foregone conclusion the corporate emdia would say she shone yesterday. They've been covering for her all year, but it doesn't seem to be helping her or them, does it?

Extraneus

Howard Kurtz:

Hillary helped by partisan media atmosphere undermining Benghazi hearing

Jack is Back!

Well, clarice, the corporate media in this country have to support her since she was behaving like them yesterday. Selective narrative to fit an agenda. They were problem taking notes on how to improve their editing, spin and obfuscation tactics.

And people wonder why the papers got rid of the comics in the back.

Jack is Back!

...problem = probably....

Miss Marple 2

Good morning!

Was listening to our morning guy, who was replaying Jim Jordan's line of questioning and explained what it meant:

She lied to the survivors in front of the caskets, and lied to the American people, because she knew THAT NIGHT that it was a terrorist attack.

Radio host thought her mention of her book was pretty tacky, too.

Miss Marple 2

Since I was flipping back and forth between CNN and Fox last night, I ran across 2 reporters on Greta's show who were political reporters for the Boston Globe and the Washington Post.

Boston Globe guy said he had learned nothing new.

That's when I went back to CNN.

Janet

So 600 requests for security in Libya never made it to Hillary? What I can't understand is why she wasn't furious about not being made aware of it. You'd think she'd have fired the person who didn't bring it to her attention.

Yes. One line to push would be Clinton using the SoS position to do Clinton Foundation business.
Was she even aware of the day-to-day responsibilities & legitimate functions at State?
She set up her own system, hired her own people, corresponded with her own people, made taxpayers pay for her private group, corresponded with Dem. business interests,...

She didn't have a computer at State, she didn't get emails from Ambassador Stevens, she didn't get security requests,...

Did she just use the title/status of Secretary of State to advance her own business interests?

Extraneus

Did she just use the title/status of Secretary of State to advance her own business interests?

All with the express permission of Obama, who couldn't care less about foreign policy unless it hurts him politically. Her only job was to prevent that, and she succeeded, with the help of Colin Powell.

clarice

NRO predicts Cruz will win based on the historical record of winners having top donor and grass roots support.

Janet

Any MFM whining about Hillary being badgered or about why there are so many hearings should be beaten back by asking why Clinton & crew weren't more forthcoming.
Why not just say what happened? The only reason for all these hearings is because they lied. They are the ones who have drawn out the process by withholding info, delaying release of FOIA requests, hiding emails, .... That is all on them.

Printing off self-chosen emails! ::spit::
That right there tells you Clinton was playing games.

Buckeye

"Did she just use the title/status of Secretary of State to advance her own business interests?"

YES

sbw

She is so f'ing imcompetent that NOTHING is her fault.

Ah. Hillary is following the Zero model.

henry

Speaking of selected email releases GAB ran both John Does from the get go per email release of part of discovery by Waukesha court.

This tells me a lawsuit by family members based on info released so far is the best way to make Hillary pay for her evil ways.

James D

Was listening to our morning guy, who was replaying Jim Jordan's line of questioning and explained what it meant:

She lied to the survivors in front of the caskets, and lied to the American people, because she knew THAT NIGHT that it was a terrorist attack.

One or more of the R Presidential candidates needs to say it explicitly, in front of microphones:

"Hillary is a goddamn liar. She lied to the American people. She lied to Congress. She lied to the families of the men who died in Benghazi. She lied to their faces, while she was standing in front of the caskets. She's a goddamn liar, and she's unfit for any public office, or even to be in a room with decent human beings. Thank you, I'll take questions now."

I'm serious. No more suggesting or implying. Come out and say it directly and forcefully and without hesitation or apology.

clarice

Thanks, Henry..I thought the judge wasn't going to release those docs before the trial--glad he did. A bunch of people should pay the victims and the state's interests demand a criminal prosecution as well.

henry

Oh my, that link above is a smoking gun on GAB running the whole deal, involving the first John Doe judge in the conspiracy early, tying the IRS in through Lerner, driving the whole thing.

Miss Marple 2

James D.,

Agree. I don't know when it became impolite to say the word "lie." For goodness sakes, people used to cane each other on the floor of Congress.

Now if you call someone a liar they clutch their pearls like delicate flowers.

sbw

Watch it. Calling someone a liar is a micro-aggression.

henry

Oh no! Lincoln Chafe dropped out of the running! Our precious metric system will not happen!

Miss Marple 2

So, the next debate will be Bernie and Hillary. That should be a gripping 2 hours.

henry

It will grab the Matlock demographic.

Jack is Back!

Listening to the radio this morning on the school run, I heard an interchange between one of the Republican ladies on the panel and Hillary regarding where she was that night. During the interchange, Hillary said something about being home that night and the Congresswoman asked if she was home alone and Hillary started to cackle, "why yes, he, he, cackle, cackle".

The guys on WOR who played the tape: "Sure she was alone. Bill was out horndogging". Laughs all around.

This must have been the evening session.

James and MM
Yes call her a liar every day
We know the dem playbook
If it is said often enough it becomes the narrative
600 requests
She fell down on the job literally
Hit her on Obama agenda

No jobs no security
Mideast in crisis
Hillary incompetent

Hillary
Missing in action
Let her think she is home free
I myself will wait for the FBI report
Hopefully around Super Tuesday

Funny how this dovetails with other "expert" claim and progressive goals.

henry

Texas Gal, yep. Our lurking friend surmises Boehner will replace Donohue at the Chamber both as a reward and for continuity. Donohue is a bigger problem than Soros.

Janet

An honest MFM would ask EVERY DEMOCRAT to weigh in on the lie about a YouTube video, weigh in on not responding to 600 security requests, weigh in on ANY SoS having only a private email system.
Make every Dem. answer some questions & have an opinion.

Miss Marple 2

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/425932/gop-primary-fundraising-jeb-bush-ted-cruz-donald-trump

The title for this article is "Jeb Bush is Toast." It's an analysis of fundraising and what it portends for candidates.

danoso

An honest MFM would have asked those questions during the run up to the 2012 election. They circled the wagons, protecting the administration, ol' fat Candy being the more outrageous example. They didn't care then, there's no chance they'd care now. We're on our own folks.

rse

That conservative treehouse article leaves out WIOA, which is the most crucial component of the GOPe agenda and what marries all those cited areas.

It is also unaware of the Chamber's Managing the Talent Pipeline paper from about a year ago that marries K-12 education as workforce development in the locally planned economy per wioa. I tried to leave a comment but it is not showing up.

Miss Marple 2

Speaking of the Chamber of Commerce, they are hosting a joint appearance of Karl Rove and James Carville here in Indy.

I think that about sums up where they are.

rse

That would be Stephen Goldsmith's Indy and he is now a prof at Kennedy School of Govt. Unfortunately for us and consistent with GOPe, he was the domestic policy advisor to GWB in 2000 while he campaigned and also to Romney in 2012.

Smoke is everywhere, man, smoke is everywhere.

We're on our own, alright, smouldering.

If he's happy with it, then it's guaranteed to be something that will hurt the economy or damage national security or under,one the Constitution further. We've got seven years of a track record to prove that.

What's he look like when he fights against signing something? Does one hand grab the pen, the other try to stop it? I'd hope this was self-evidently ridiculous, but maybe it's not.

There's a certain amount of legislation that has to be passed (including, obviously, spending bills). If the goal is not to pass them, but to invite a veto, nothing gets passed. If that persists long enough, you won't have to worry about the GOP House majority, because you won't have one.

This bill goes back for an attempt to override, which isn't going to be close. Then they'll have to start over. Who comes out of this with a strengthened political position?

Miss Marple 2

Cecil,

Why the GOP can't make hay from Obama having a VETOING CEREMONY for the Defense Authorization Bill is mind-boggling to me.

Furthermore, his reason was due to wanting it to include moving Gitmo detainees to American prisons.

What president makes a ceremony out of vetoing a defense bill in the middle of world-wide chaos and terrorism?

Little known fact: it was only the fifth veto since he has been in office.
