After this shit with Susan Rice, what will it take for Democrats to get a clue?

You

Do

Not

Play

Into

Republican

Narratives

.

You just don't do it. Ever. And yet, we do. Time and time and time again.

Fuck them. They lost. They're the minority party.

Note to Democrats: YOU WON THE FUCKING ELECTIONS!

YOU WON.

You got the White House.

You gained in the Senate and hold a clear majority.

You IMPROVED your lot in the House and, indeed, won more popular votes in the House than they did.

And yet you act like they own your asses.

S T O P

Stop right now.

Jaybus Fucking Kerist On A Fucking Trailer Hitch. Get with the program, people. Tell them to go fuck themselves. Just go fuck themselves with dried corncobs.

Mark my words. This is about some grand plan they have. They are FUCKING with you for a reason. And you (we) will NOT like it.

Mark my words.

ARGH!

5. Susan Rice was not playing into them, she was setting them up for a fall, and it will be huge. They

learned nothing from the election.

When they implode, as in the election it will be quite a thing to watch

scratching their heads right now wondering what the heck are they picking on Susan Rice whose information was obtained from our intelligence?

I will enjoy this one almost as much as I did the election results from faux and company

I don't believe the "Independent" fallacy either, folks consistently vote their lean and are independent for any number of reasons be it left, right, or mainstream of their lean.

Winning elections is a means not the end.

Is it about just letting the Republicans blather and pee into their Depends? Letting them look bad to other people? Or is there some big repuke crash from this thing coming that I haven't figured out yet?

They don't understand nice, they don't understand compromise, they don't understand progress and they don't give a damn about most of the citizens of this country. And, they are a hateful lot. Way back, one could work with republicans and broker solutions, those days are gone. The republican party has become a bunch of assholes.

have no credibility.

and yes, the republican party has become a bunch of assholes, and independents are becoming aware of it more and more everyday

They have lost women and minorities, and now they are going to lose the independents

14. And just how do you shut their B.S. down ?

Remember in 2009 when the White House lost its "war" with Fox News?

As I recall, the President and Press Secretary tried to keep calling them out for their lies and propaganda.

But instead of telling the story of how the White House was calling out Fox for demonstrably wrong "news," the other media outlets (this from memory) turned on the White House for attacking the free press.

What the news media does, time and again, is "he said / she said." They never try to go beyond the easy story, which is reporting the advertising generated "false controversy" when a Republican levels a charge, however false, misleading, and untrue, thereby putting the second talking head on the defensive from the git-go.

That's why the Tom Ricks response seemed so powerful. He didn't put up with the B.S. He flatly stated, "I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political probably because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party."

Is what Ricks said true or false? Accurate or not? "Was Fox News operating as a wing of the Republican Party?"

What you won't see is other "journalists" examining and extending what Ricks said. They're content to clickbait readers by turning it into a "he said / she said" false controversy. They won't examine the facts. Which is why the Romney campaign decided to ignore fact checkers.

And why Repugs get away with the crap they do.

Saying not to put up with it is easy and manly.

But what "our side" needs is a way to break through how the media works and bring fact based reporting back.

16. "But what "our side" needs . . . . . bring fact based reporting back."

Fine. Then do that. But as we do that, IGNORE the repubicans. Let them bleat all they want. And when we get asked by some lazy-fuck reporter, ignore the question and ask the reporter why he isn't reporting actual facts.

Susan Rice did nothing to hurt the Democratic party.

She behaved like a grown up while McCain looked like a spoiled child.

Well, the Three Stooges. Who's on first?

They come out of a meeting with the acting CIA Director and Amb. Rice and claim they are more disturbed now than before the meeting. Now what the hell does that mean? With no specifics the American people can see what out of touch jerks these three stooges really are. I say give them more rope.

24. This may apply more to the filibuster reform. McConnell threatens that it would "poison" the

Senate, and if reform does not happen, McConnell will use the filibuster to poison the country.
DO NOT GIVE AN INCH ON FILIBUSTER REFORM OR ON SUSAN RICE

Dems like to look at themselves as the adults in the room, but if so, then what in Hades are they doing? They need to stand in front of their bathroom mirrors and say this over 10 times every morning and every night:

"WE WON. WE WON. WE WON. WE WON. WE WON.

WE WON. WE WON. WE WON. WE WON. WE WON."

30. Remember other times when radicals killed Americans?

Singing God Bless America on the Capitol steps may have been a little corny, but it was both parties doing it. It wasn't just Americans against non-Americans, it was people against murderers. I don't remember all this "who knew what when?" bullshit in 1982 in Beruit. Why don't we investigate who did the killing instead of investigatiing the investigators? If someone did fuck up, we have time to work that out. The endless campaign rolls on, Decision 2014 started before Romney's concession speech and this is part of it.

31. Rachel said it tonight: The Repubs want Kerry's senate seat in the worst way

All of a sudden it made sense: they are trying to destroy Ms Rice, while saying how very very very much Senator John Kerry should get the SOS appointment because he is soooooo qualified, and they really want him and not that awful woman.

If John Kerry accepts an SOS appointment, his Senate seat in Massachusetts must be filled, and who do you think is waiting in the wings to run again now that Elizabeth Warren won? Could it be Scott Brown? Ya think?

Well, well, well. Suddenly all the sturm und drang and lying makes a kind of evil sense.

34. And on and on it goes...

This administration just WON a second term. It was NOT dumb luck.

Yet no sooner than the election's over, a crowd is back to hectoring POTUS as if he's Mubu the Fool. NO thought as to whether there's a reason behind this despite the fact that this team just handed Romney and the GOP MSM their asses. The shouting crowd just thinks they know better when they swallow the pundit spin.

Remember, staying home in the midterms won't work well despite whatever Big Ed says.
