Exactly! You'd have to be a complete moron to donate anything to ANY PAC.
This one is funny because the Tea Party told us they were different. ( I knew better) We always knew the other two parties were screwing everybody they could. It's all about the cash. Always was, always will be!

Money is the only god in this country!

The Tea Party isn't a political party to begin with, it's an advocacy group. They're the Susan G Komen of politics: Collect money, pocket most of it, buy ads and repeat.

Boom goes the dynamite!

Benghazi emails suggest White House aide involved in prepping Rice for ‘video’ explanation Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House official played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.
The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney.

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.

The email lists the following two goals, among others:

"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."

The email goes on to state that the U.S. government rejected the message of the Internet video. "We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence," the email stated.

^^^ We've all known they have lied since the beginning and they know it. They just don't care.

Unfortunately, Benghazi was so long ago that the voters have forgotten about it. I wouldn't be surprised if asked about Benghazi, some of our more youthful voters didn't mention something about Bush.

Anyway, I don't think this newly released set of emails will make much difference overall. They will work it into a newly fabricated story.

I'm just excited that the truth is coming out. I knew they were lying from the start because I read the SEE EYE AYE cables about the attack on 9/12.

^^ Agreed. It's nice to see it come out since it does vindicate those that said it was a lie from the beginning.

I had an interesting conversation with a co-worker about Obamacare a few days ago. He's sixty years old and is going to retire this year. He has plenty of money. In fact, his younger wife retired last year. Well, long story short, we were talking about how he has to pay for insurance out of his pocket until he's old enough for Medicare. He said he was just going to pay for COBRA. It was going to cost him $1,200 a month. I told him to check out Obamacare... He didn't want anything to do with it. He said he didn't really know how it worked or anything about it.
I explained to him how Obamacare is just an insurance exchange where all the different companies compete for your business.

Well, today I asked him how his insurance shopping was going. He said when he got home after work that day, he called a local insurance agent and inquired about it. Yada, Yada, Yada. (seinfeld) his premium is going from $1,200 (COBRA) to $593.00 a month (Obamacare). Yeah, he's pretty happy about it.
He said none of the news channels that he watches ever explained how it worked like the insurance agent did. Yep! you guessed it. Mostly Fox News. He said every night they talked about the horrors of it without actually explaining how it worked. Needless to say, he now has a different opinion.

And then, I see this story tonight. Almost exactly the same.... Go figure!
