31. Actually we get right to the point.

collins talks, IMHO, like she's trying to squeeze out her constipation.

She's up again in 2014. I think she may be concerned about a teabagger primary challenger. Otherwise, I think that Rep. Chellie Pingree has a HUGE hard on for her. I have NO concrete evidence of this, but it's a feeling.

BTW, hello from Winthrop Maine!

PEACE!

36. No offense taken.

You know who makes the most fun of the way that people from Maine talk? People from Maine.

One way we can tell the difference between people from Maine and the tourists is that tourists say that they're ginf to Baaah Haaahhbah for laahbstah. People who live in Maine won't go to Bar Harbor for Lobster.

PEACE!

6. I came here as soon as it was over

My head is spinning, I have never heard that much bullshit being whipped into a Dairy Queen swirl. I have no clue what she was saying...until Tweety penned her down.

They are accusing the President of covering up a terrorist attack...because he didnt name the attackers. SOME reason they believe a terrorist act from just a RUN OF A MILL terrorist group would have been better for OBAMA politically..than a BONA FIDE Terrorist attack by the Dreaded AL QUEADA....its not real unless its AL QUEADA....these people are FUCKING CRAZY.

went easy on Collins, at times even agreeing with her. WTF? Collins said that when Rice went on the sunday shows she acted with certainty when the opposite is true. THEY ARE MAKING SHIT UP. Even Tweety is believing this shit.

23. I dont believe tweety was agreeing

with her with those grunts he gives...its what he does to let the person know he is listening or "go on" not really saying Yeah I agree...they are just grunts. That is my feeling. Susan Collins really laid it bare..they are going with the "Concocted conspiracy theory" Faux created.


THEY BELIEVE THE HYPE AGAIN...like they did before the election, when our factcheckers were not good enough, our polls were skewed and America wants a Christian Taliban, the Election didnt happen, and they just have to get out the message clearer, THEY HAVEN'T STOPPED CAMPAIGNING. The denial is total. They need intervention, this shit is scaring the holy shit out of me.

24. did you see afterwards with

David Corn? Tweety seemed to be upset that Rice would do the interview on MTP when she could not tell the entire truth and how the talking points were politicized...that's how I saw it on Hardball...clearly, Tweety does not have all the facts.

I did a double take and jaw on floor over that one. I did not have the same reaction as you regarding the Corn interview. Tweety was right on when he said this is because the GOP hates Obama got Bin Laden, its a grudge....re view the interview, He gets it.

12. Write a letter

 

to Susan Collins and tell her she can't get her facts straight about the Libyan President. She needs to huddle with her pals and get her story right. Here is why:

September 12, 2012, The Guardian published a video interview, with emphasis, A local Libyan at the consulate compound right after the attack, emphasized that the attack was in response to the Anti-Islamic Film.

September 12 from the Dailey Star, Wanis al- sharif of the Libyan government ( Libyan Government with emphasis) told a news conference in Benghazi, that the attack was likely carried out by perpetrators of Gadaffi Loyalists.

NPR states that President Mohammed el Megaris said that foreigners infiltrated Libya over the past months, planned the attack and used Libyans to carry it out. He rejected that it was due to a spontaneous attack and the film but tied it to Al Qaeda. The only problem is in the same report ( he conflicts his statement), He said the attackers used the (emphasized) protesters outside the consulate as cover.

I suggest Senator Collins, along with the CIA, and Libyan government huddle with the GOP and get your stories straight! It is blowing up in your faces!

14. Tweety loves to repeat...

she's a moderate,along with Olympia Snowe and McCain. Moderate because all in the media keep repeating it and then everyone picks it up but,every time there is something major going on they are right there with the right,right wing republiCONS.

15. They are rudderless, going on campain mode...i

Don't get me started on the Gramps McCain crap...he didnt get his questions answered at a QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Meeting specifically to answer ALL HIS QUESTIONS...what was he doing all that time? Couldn't he get his hands high enough in the air to ask his question? Is that why he was so troubled?

They dont care about Rice really, to them she is expendable. They dont care if they assassinate her character, they want that senate seat open in Mass....because as vile and vicious they are to Rice, they are falling over backwards complementing John Kerry....oh, believe me, if Ted Kennedy were still alive and younger, they would be woo'ing him too. Susan Rice means nothing, America means nothing, the election we had last month means nothing...they will have POWER..but not for country, no no no, for Party.

THEY ARE CRAZY or.......

Edit,,,someone said something today may be relevant. Said they are "BORKING" Rice...explain please?

30. From Wikipedia: Robert Bork

Bork as verb

According to columnist William Safire, the first published use of bork as a verb was "possibly" The Atlanta Journal-Constitution of August 20, 1987. Safire defines to bork by reference "to the way Democrats savaged Ronald Reagan's nominee, the Appeals Court judge Robert H. Bork, the year before." Perhaps the best known use of the verb to bork occurred in July 1991 at a conference of the National Organization for Women in New York City. Feminist Florynce Kennedy addressed the conference on the importance of defeating the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court. She said, "We're going to bork him. We're going to kill him politically ... This little creep, where did he come from?" Thomas was subsequently confirmed after one of the most divisive confirmation hearings in Supreme Court history.

In March 2002, the Oxford English Dictionary added an entry for the verb Bork as U.S. political slang, with this definition: "To defame or vilify (a person) systematically, esp. in the mass media, usually with the aim of preventing his or her appointment to public office; to obstruct or thwart (a person) in this way."

29. Some 1998 attacks?

The U.S. Embassy Bombings in Kenya & Tanzania

Fall 1998



On August 7, 1998, two car bombs exploded at the American Embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, killing 224 people and wounding more than 5,000 others. Twelve Americans were killed in the Nairobi blast.

Unsubstantiated claims of responsibility for the bombings were received by several media outlets from an unknown group called the Islamic Army for the Liberation of the Holy Places. Its communiqué called for "the withdrawal of U.S. and western forces from Moslem countries in general and from the Arabian Peninsula in particular."

22. The Republican party

is juggling this issue like they have their ass on fire, are on a unicycle poised over a 300 foot drop to a cliff. I wouldn't get too concerned over it.

They are trotting out everyone that could conceivably be construed as a moderate to keep their entire party from looking like dumbasses, which they do thanks to Graham and McCain, and the GOP can barely breathe from embarrassment. They have so much egg on their faces, the party looks like an omelet, and they were the ones breaking them.

President Obama is sitting back, letting them drop their balls one by one, because nobody with any sense thinks this is going anywhere. Even Republicans know it, but they are going forward with it because they were shocked that they lost. They are scrambling like buffoons to latch onto an issue that makes them look better.

It's actually pretty delicious, if you want my opinion .
