First rule of Rove: Always attack your opponent for their best qualities. It makes low-information voters a little more confused. And in the case of McCain, he comes up short compared to Obama in, well, just about everything.

I don't know, Luke Russert asking Pelosi if she thinks she's too old and should step aside for younger leadership to emerge was the dumbest question I've ever heard.

He can go fark himself. For the man who nominated Sarah Palin to be his Vice President to accuse someone else, much less who's done a great job, of incompetence? He deserves to be slapped in public.

Republicans are REALLY hating the fact that this Petraeus scandal is taking away from their Benghazi wankfest. Particularly considering the fact that Petraeus and McCain were like two peas in a pod at one point.
 
2012-11-14 09:52:53 PM
Also this: After a short pause he continued, "There's 4 dead Americans. The lives of other Americans were put in jeopardy. This is a matter of 4 dead Americans. I think that the other issue raised is very serious and I think it deserves a thorough and complete investigation. But it does not rise to the level of an attack on an American consulate that took four American lives."

YOU SUPPORTED A WAR AND CONTINUE TO SUPPORT A WAR WHICH HAS KILLED THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS FOR NO DISCERNIBLE PURPOSE, YOU PIECE OF CRAP.

Because Rice is a leading candidate to replace Hilary. The Repubs are trying to dirty her up, Rovestyle.... they apparently are too dumb to understand that this crap has worn out, and is why they lost the Prez election and lost seats in both the Senate and the House.

Take anything he says about national security with a grain of salt.

McCain, you're an asshole. I had a shred of respect for you before you ran for President, but then you unleashed Palin on the country. And now you're just being a prick. Yeah, it was a dumb question, but you're not impressing anyone by being a bombastic dickweed.

In response to a question about whether classified documents found leaked in the Gen. Petraeus scandal posed a greater national security threat than the Benghazi attack, McCain quickly responded, "Well I say with great respect, that's one of the dumbest questions I've ever heard."

That's the question? Actually, it IS a pretty decent question. One that didn't really get answered properly.

you really think Palin was a personal pick from among his own inner circle? i always had the feeling she was shoved into the position by the party leaders who spent big money on her pretty talking head from early on in her career. i think she was an embarrassment to mr. frozen french fries.
 
2012-11-15 05:15:47 AM
The really funny thing is that if the Generals mistress gained access to truly dangerous classified documents somehow. For instance, if she was actually a spy playing the long game, she could very well have gotten her hands on documents that end up putting many, many more American lives in danger. That retarded old codger is so heart-set on making Bengazi a thing that he didn't even consider the question, or answer reasonably.

Well, that coupled with sucking up to the guy that sank his presidential run in 2000, even going so far as to hire the people that launched a mean-spirited, racist attack against him, sank it for me. That's when it was revealed that he is just another guy willing to whore himself out to anyone to get to the big chair.

This latest tantrum is just a reminder that he never got over 2008. IMO, he still thinks he's running for president against Obama.

Remember how after 2008 had winded down, and the inauguration had some and gone we all said to ourselves that these retards would burn themselves out? We consoled ourselves with the thought... nay, certainty! that the retards would get over it, and that there was no way they could stay that angry and that energetic for too long? Yes, we told ourselves that after a few more months they would calm down and let things get back to normal? Boy were we wrong! *sigh*

Best of all, they would simultaneously tell us Obama's election meany we were in a post-racial epoch of American history, all the while hating on the Commander in Chief for presidentin' while black Hi-Larious.

He really has gone senile, hasn't he?

FTFA: He continued, "There's 4 dead Americans. There's 4 dead Americans. Not a socialite." The reporter attempted to interrupt but McCain quickly stopped him. "I'm answering your question. Ok, do you want me to answer your question or do you want to interrupt? Which do you want?" After a short pause he continued, "There's 4 dead Americans. The lives of other Americans were put in jeopardy. This is a matter of 4 dead Americans. I think that the other issue raised is very serious and I think it deserves a thorough and complete investigation. But it does not rise to the level of an attack on an American consulate that took four American lives."

Because odds are if there were intelligence failures it was because the head ofthe CIA was busier sticking his dick in crazy and playing damage control when she went "crazy" on him than doing his job. Catch-22, Petraeus is a "hero" to Republicans. Thus the answer is to spin it into an attack on the president and those in his administration. I would put more weight into the Republican outrage and investigation if they didn't appear more interested in finding a way to use Benghazi to make the president look bad than in finding answers. Especially since they are the ones who voted to cut funding for embassy security yet refuse to acknowledge that it might have something to do with embassies having insufficient security.

Considering the GOP's behavior, can you imagine how they would have behaved had McCain been a democratic nominee? They were unconscionably rude to John Kerry with respect to his purple heart, Again, if McCain was a dem, I'm sure Fox news would have been endlessly attacking McCain and his ability to fly, or concocting stories about how he got himself into a warrior's prison just to avoid fighting They probably would have go so far as to ask if he was really tortured or if he just made it all up. This is probably the first and maybe the last time I'll say this, but for his sake, it was a goof thing McCain was a republican, It would have been horrible to have to go through those incriminations of being a shiatty soldier, a liar and a fibber,

I had more to say, but I lost my train of thought.

I can't even figure out what the "scandal" is regarding Bengazi.

That it took 7 hours to send a rescue team? Okay then, how long should it have taken. And what makes that a scandal?

That the administration should have told us more or wasn't completely accurate in what happened until about two weeks afterwards? Okay then, what did that change/affect?


Seriously, someone needs to explain what the scandal is. If everything the Republicans say is true, at worst the administration could have done better and been faster with information and reacting to the attack. Valid criticism, but no scandal.

/a scandal needs immoral or illegal activity.

I was a McCain supporter in 2000... I remember well how he lost South Carolina in the primaries.... Bush/Rove went after his military service by having a proxy suggest that he was brainwashed when he was a prisoner.

Then McCain and Bush had a 'debate/joint interview' in SC and McCain basically said that was a low blow, Bush responded by saying with an indignant 'Are you questioning my honor? Don't you question my honor!' (paraphrased). I new McCain would loose at that moment.

/push polling that McCain fathered a mix-raced child didn't help either.

There isn't a scandal, this is an attempt to direct Republican rage. We were supposed to be enraged about the economy. We were supposed to be enraged about minorities. We were supposed to be enraged about the suppression of rapists' God-given parental rights. We weren't. Well, at least not in the way they had hoped. So now they keep this in the news, because the kind of people this bullshiat works on won't care about any facts or information (and have, in fact, made it virtually impossible for an unbiased investigation to take place).
