Yeah. It lets them feel all "citizen of the world" to let France drop the first 20 bombs or so (their whole arsenal). And then of course not put any boots on the ground to try to control anything because war isn't war if white people aren't dying.

Not everyone uses false equivalency as justification. Take notes Beavis.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who will chair the committee, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Thursday that he did not support using Benghazi to raise campaign funds. "And I will cite myself as an example. I have never sought to raise a single penny on the backs of four murdered Americans," he said.

Justification and Ridiculing UberHypocrisy are not synonymous.

The issue took a disgusting political turn on Thursday, though, when U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., used Sandy Hook to raise money. The money is not for one of the relief funds set up to help victims' families, or to fund mental health services, or to support autism research.

"In the wake of the horror of the December 14, 2012, massacre of 20 beautiful children and 6 dedicated educators," Blumenthal is asking supporters to send money to his 2016 re-election campaign!

"As your senator, I will continue fighting for the rights of all the people, not the special interests. But I need your help," Blumenthal wrote in an email to supporters Thursday morning. "Please contribute $5 now as the Senate debate continues on common-sense gun reform legislation this week."
I'll accept your attempt to locate our resident Proggies' calls for Blumenthal to resign as your apology.

Try denouncing using Benghazi as a fund raising opportunity instead of pointing to other nauseating, opportunistic fundraisers. ie, false equivalency.

Again, take notes from Gowdy, he had the integrity to distance himself from it.

I personally don't care if a politician uses a crises for raising money. If it has something to do with their beliefs, it is an actual example of what could happen if his opinions are not enacted. If a politician against all guns and uses Sandy Hook as an example in ads, who cares? He is at least putting a major American event to what he has stated as a politician throughout his career. Same goes for Bengahzi if it is tied to a belief.

Says the guy who just got done pooh-poohing Benghazi with a reference to something that Reagan went through 30 years ago.

And you're misusing 'false equivalency.' There's nothing false about it.

You were right before in that Democrats' bad practices in the past don't justify Republican ones today. It's just a super strange argument from someone who just finished up telling us about the actions of a President who's been out of office for 25+ years in response to accusations about our current administration.

You overuse when you bull****.

My point, which you couldn't grasp the first time, or choose to ignore, was about the politics in DC.

I highlighted it for you so you wouldn't miss it.....apparently a waste of time.

Scandals are worth investigating if they involve republicans. Otherwise, pretend it didn't happen.

C'mon man! Investigate both parties if something really is amiss. In this case, there is no scandal.

Yeah, nothing to see here. But at least we learned something. If you want to silence someone (say someone like Valerie Plame) don't just out them in a newspaper article. That would be criminal and impeachable.

Instead, just name them the zero-security-footprint ambassador to Islamabad or something similar, never to be heard from again.

Democrats always have all the best solutions.

No Scandal? The BO admin had Amb Rice on all the Sunday shows lying. The BO admin put a film maker in jail to help support their lies. I don't know what is there, but I do know that there is something. Maybe Ro's right and it's just incompentance, but they are acting like there is more to the story. I just want to know the truth and the admin is not telling the truth. We should all want to know the truth.

I have lurked here for years and just started posting. I have never been baned. I enjoy the banter, and the comunity here, almost as much as I enjoy watching the Broncos win.

Look to your left, deep into the eyes of my Ave. That's me.

As I said before, I just want to know the truth, and I know that this is not the result of some internet video. It could be just the run of the mill screw up, I doubt that is the case.

Three investigations with no findings of any wrong doing. Until you can bring legitimate proof of anything scandal-worthy, not accusations or innuendo, you should refrain using the words criminal and impeachable.

Imagine that emails showing they lied got hidden from the panels. Shocking when they found them they re-ignited them.

You have to do it Iran Contra style and offer up a scapegoat. We won't stand for acting like nothing happened lol. Whose it going to be Hilliary? Susan Rice? pick one and lets move on.
