    Harry Reid delivered a brutal smackdown to John McCain and the Republicans regarding their blatant, dangerous politicization of the attacks in Benghazi and misrepresentation of classified information for political purposes, starting off with, “I refuse to allow the Senate to be used as a venue for baseless partisan attacks.â€

    [​IMG]

    Reid noted that a senior staff member for Representative Mike Rogers was actively working for Governor Mitt Romney’s campaign as Rogers was launching partisan attacks on Obama over Benghazi, sometimes misrepresenting the facts and possibly exposing classified information.


    Furthermore, “One of you, Senator McCain, has gone so far as to make the outrageous claim that this event was “worse than Watergateâ€â€“ despite the fact that there is no evidence that any crime was committed, no evidence of any cover-up, and no evidence that the administration has characterized the incident in any way that has not been consistent with the Intelligence Community’s contemporaneous assessments.â€


    Reid pointed out that Issa’s clown show shed “no new light†on the incident, but did succeed in “exposing sensitive and potentially classified information, as well as grossly misrepresenting the facts.â€
    Harry called the Republicans out for politicizing national security during the election, “The elections are over; it is time to put an end to the partisan politicization of national security, and begin working together to strengthen our efforts to dismantle and destroy the terrorist networks that threaten us.â€

    --as if Reid has any say or control over that. Ridiculous stumping.

    It is amusing how many liberals claim to hate bias yet they watch msnbc, real time, the daily show, etc.

    Its amusing how you talk about these sources of bias, but you were somehow lead to believe that a video of the Benghazi attack was playing in the whitehouse in real time. And yes I know Obama has been investigating for 9 weeks . . . Blah blah blah-- you already posted that multiple times.

    I am maybe the only person on this forum that will admit to being biased.

    I think I've asked you this before but may have missed your answer. Where is the information about there being no real-time video? Did Obama deny that there was any video? You keep repeating this and I am curious where you are getting it.

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/15/politics/benghazi-hearings/index.html

    we know that there was video taken. you are just disputing that it was streamed to the white house?

    There was a close circuit video at the consulate that was not accessed till well after the attack(dont know what it showed). There were drones sent out an hour or so after the attack started that presumably did record the attack from a distance and send it in real time--not sure who and when that was watched or how much info it gave during the attack but we will probably find out. someone was also giving phone updates of the situation to the state department from a distance

    The idea that anyone in the u.s.a. Was watching the Americans beg for help in real time is complete bullshit. Thank you for admitting you are biased.

    Here is a link, the author may be biased, but he addresses the facts pertaining to this topic fairly well.

    I am familiar with this article. It doesn't seem to dispute that there were drones in the sky capable of sending real time visuals back to Washington.

    You say

    and then

    huh? which is it? the people on the ground were asking for backup. do you dispute that?

    why be biased for or against people based on what letter of the alphabet happens to be next to their name?
    doesn't seem logical.
    it's not like they are paying you to promote them.

    what would happen if everyone read bills without knowing which person from which party wrote it?
    my guess is very few would give their opinion at all, out of concern for it being different than what they think they are 'supposed' to say.
    no?

    You are more hungup on labels than anyone else. A republican is simply someone I am more likely to agree with. I don't agree with them all, or even like them all. They are the only thing standing in the way of the entire country becoming California.

    who did i label? i think all those terms are meaningless. i'm hung up on criticizing others who falsely label.
    CA just had a republican Governor, nothing changed there. it doesn't seem to matter which party someone is in.
    would you vote for a smart dem over a dumb rep?
