Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Investigations are fine, but the GOP makes conclusions, then keeps investigating to try to find data to back their conclusions.

I didn't say anything about you predicting a landslide. You predicted a close Romney victory. Unfortunately they have purged the comments from that glorious period.

Notsofreeman is back. Someone must have said benghazi or whitewater.

The hearing was convened for the sole purpose of Issa's self engrandoisement.

norm, If you drank beer in the 70's you probably petted my dog Amos though I havn't seen any friends in the obits recently. Most were too busy drooling over my mate to notice me anyway.

And it's not just the IRS problem.

Virtually every investigation of any administration that is initiated by congress gets stonewalled like this. It transcends administrations and party lines.

It is a corruption of the checks and balances, pure and simple and you brilliant minds think it's just fine.

So, no corruption, yet the individual in charge of the department takes the 5th and wants immunity. Nope, nothing there according to my friends.

Treasury will not provide the documentation and emails that the committees ask for. Complete investigation according to my friends.

DOJ hasn't talked to one of the victims in the scandal. Not taken one statement.

If Cummings wants to whine about a one sided investigation then he'd better look at his own side of the isle.

Come on, REALLY GUYS???!!!

I wonder why Issa is so P'd off.

Now another extension in the "if you like your plan.." mess. Hmmm, takes it beyond the midterms, how coincidental.

You guys are a laughing stock.

Cummings wanted to bloviate and spew the cover-up line and when Issa shut it down he about had a stroke. Poor Elijah.

Ms. Lerner wanted immunity for her testimony normy, when they said no she clammed up.

The hearing was convened for the sole purpose of Lerner's testimony. She took the 5th and so Issa shut it down. All Cummings wanted to do was to whine about "witch hunts". People don't take the 5th in "witch hunt" investigations.

Treasury Sec. Lew just admitted in a hearing that the emails and documents asked for by the committees of jurisdiction have not been provided. Investigations?? I'd stop watching MSNBC and start watching these hearings on CSPAN.

No, jaxspp, if you look back you'll find that I warned that there would be NO landslide on either side in the popular vote and that the democrats were "getting out the vote" far more effectively than the republicans.

I watched that exchange over a few times. Multi millionaire,richest man in Congress Issa comes across as an effete snob, He knew the woman was going to plead the Fifth, yet he brought her there to continue his dead issue, and dismissed a member of Congress who called him on his adamant, stupid Mcarthyist witch hunt.

Posted 267 days ago.

Free, didn't you also predict a Romney victory?

Posted 267 days ago.

Other than Fox, all the news outlets are skewering Issa as being a thug and a bully. Lerner's attorney already informed him before the hearing she would take the fifth, but apparently he hadn't reached his wasting taxpayer time and money quota yet, so he called the hearing anyway.

There is no there there.

Freeman, you putz, it was Issa that came across as an idiot. The wealthiest man in Congress acted like a superior being, and dismissed the man. Vey unprofessional, and a cynical expression of disdain. I wonder how many of these meetings take less than 15 minutes. You way overestimate your powers of prognostication.

What's so great about Lois taking the 5th?

So she was not forced to incriminate herself. Key word, INCRIMINATE.

Cummings looked like an idiot. Great day.

Aren't you tired of seeing everything I said would happen, HAPPEN???!!

No need to argue with you gentlemen since your positions are eroding and self imploding as we speak. Have fun, I'll keep reading.

Cummings? What a putz.

Posted 268 days ago.

Something called The Right Scoop. I think he's afraid we'd bash him on suspending his business. I don't think I would, but I'm certain surefoot would. Things aren't that anonymous on the web, you never know what you might find if you really dig in.

Yes that was great theater. So where is RS posting?

Posted 268 days ago.

Hah, IRS hearing over already, Lerner takes fifth, Elijah Cummings dresses down Issa. What a great day.

Posted 268 days ago.

I looked a few days ago and RS is posting on more conservative friendly confines. Will he return? Don't know. Free is waiting with baited breath for Lois Lerner to testify to Issa. I know he is dying for someone, anyone to be indicted on the major, major scandals. This might be kaput, but I suspect if it becomes clear the GOP could take the Senate they'll be back.

Of course, the anonymous nature of our posts here makes a search difficult, but it is sort of fun trying to place an actual name with a persona...

Bush was an astute observer into peoples 'souls', as you mentioned, Jax. I am scanning the obituaries and the Alpena News daily for any sign that perhaps our conservative 'friends' have passed on, or have taken ill. I hope that is not the case. Personally, last week, in a span of 5 days, I lost 3 friends, all in my age bracket. Enjoy every sandwich, as well as any opportunity to converse with those of us who need the education.
