The entire vomit inducing weenie gang is here now...probably waiting for mommy to bathe them and give them cookies and milk before bed..
For weenie liar Gunner schnitzel who lies like a true republican...
"The truth is that the Republicans have nothing to offer. Not even anything that looks like a governing philosophy. Conservatism has moved out of the ranks of political theories and simply become a cult; one that requires that certain phrases be mouthed, that certain hatreds be nourished, and that purity be maintained regardless of cost. That schism with reality is increasingly large and increasingly obvious. They try to paper over that gap by dismissing little things like science, reason, history. Real science fails to support their contentions, so they have to write it off. Reason doesn't work for them, so any question must be met with red-faced indignity — every question a gotcha question. Real history is full of warts, quirks, and unfortunate truths that don't fit their ritualized beliefs. So they have to try to rewrite history, giving us rewrite Reagan who never raised a tax or increased a debt, rewrite FDR who created the issues he actually solved, rewrite Lincoln who championed the Confederate cause, rewrite founding fathers who never owned slaves, never supported government regulation of the economy, never wavered in their ardent love for a form of religiosity that didn't yet exist. Tricorner hats are the new tinfoil.
The real danger isn't that someone might listen to the Republicans—anyone who lies long enough and loud enough can always find an audience, especially when that someone has three quarters of the television media and ninety+ percent of radio. The danger is that we might forget that they're lying. Too often Democrats, including this president, have felt that the best way to handle Republican fantasies is to compromise with them. You can't compromise reality, no no matter how loud the lies."

Didja get all that, Peppy? I almost forgot what your original comment was by the time Jean got finished quoting the latest scripture from her Daily Kos Bible.

Oh yeah, now I remember. You said the administration would be best served by coming clean on this and that the American people deserve to know what was going on there.

Jean somehow ended up talking about "warts, quirks, and unfortunate truths that don't fit ritualized beliefs..."

So it will cost to much to enforce our borders, eh? SO let's just throw our hands up and walk away, right? You're an imbecile, PeeDaPoop. And a Liar, to boot.
That old lie about loss of farm labor and "hotel cleaning" BS has become laughably obsolete and you progressive ultra left wing social democrat liberals keep kicking the roadkill. Cute. Funny. Stupid.
You’re an idiot PeeDaPoop; you always have been and always will be.

Yeah Carol. Well reading is sooo hard. It takes like real work to read stuff and learn stuff like history, facts, numbers, reality, science! It's so much easier to be a republican lying hypocrite like you and just make crap up and change the rules of the game as you go along.

Jean is Jean, all mean. It's okay with me that she supports Obama. What gets me is that she cannot see her own hipocrisy. She is in denial in so many respects with her criticism. Both parties have failed us in many ways, I am willing to admit that fact. Jean won't.

Others, including Russians, recognize a fraud and manipulator. In fact, they're demanding his resignation.

A Holder resignation would initiate a lot more fallout other than just the simple removal of a government crook and lying punk. It would cast a dark shadow on the President and this is why the Snake is writhing at this moment. Executive Privilege, in this case of a corrupt DOJ, is the last resort of scoundrels, cads and basturds. He is caught lying and has to "freeze" everything which will give him some breathing space to work in collusion with other crooked dept heads to find a way out of this before the election.

You just *know* that the phones are ringing off the hook at his friends at the NY Times, Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, Larry King, George Soros and the Beijing People's Daily right at this moment

Wallowing and hypocrisy are for republicans. I'm an American. I want our government to work TOGETHER to fix the mess that Bush left behind. The treasonous behavior of republicans during Impeachment made me an unrepublican. Hard to believe....but your party is even more treasonous today than it was then. Let's hear it for your birther buddies Peppy...real classy bunch of traitors there.
It's not like Barack Obama had anything important to attend to other than your republican birther crap.
