Are you outraged by the latest "scandals"?

I just don't see anything that is all that serious about any of these especially considering all that has come before that has gone unpunished or where people were punished for no reason.
Acorn that public servant in GA. (a dimbart victim) and the bank bailouts and the mother of them all Iraq.

I'd like to know how alone I am feeling this way so I put a poll below.

Thanks and peace to my fellow DUers

1. I voted outraged but

my outrage stems from the fact that people aren't outraged as to why all these political tea party groups were given social charity tax exemptions. That's the real scandal right there.

4. Any outrage I have concerning the "scandals"

Is that any of this sheer BULLshit ever had any traction.I'm further outraged by the very fact that this tripe DID have traction,is more evidence that the stoopid is becoming stronger with each passing day.

5. I'm outraged that nothing is being done about the REAL scandals

Like letting the banksters be rewarded for their thefts, Gitom still open, DOJ going after MMJ, non prosecution of war crimes.

that these hearing are being held so that we can avoid having hearings on the ones you mentioned.

10. I'm more outraged at the blatant partisanship of the hearings...

I wouldn't mind the hearings so much if the repukes weren't more interested in giving the Obama administration a black eye rather than dealing with the problems and fixing them.

Obama should know when every single member of the federal government, it's employees and contractors go on a bathroom break.

Thanks for the reply.

12. I'm outraged, but not because of the scandals, per se.

I'm outraged because Congress and the media are wasting time on all this manufactured HORSESHIT instead of tackling the very real problems in this country.

Fucking Republicans need to go out and try to get real jobs.

13. Not only that, they are ignoring the real scandals.

Such as blatantly political groups (i.e., Tea Party) not only illegally getting tax exemptions, but playing the victims, and getting sympathy for it. And, such as, the GOP doctoring memos regarding Benghazi, and nobody is saying peep about that, either. If the Dems did that, they'd be run out of town on a rail.

24. Now you know why I turned them all off in 2004

never to turn them back on unless it's for 15 minutes or so during some kind of disaster.

I was sick of being lied to by omission. Their sponsors can whistle for my dollars, I won't be a captive audience during the nightly propaganda hour, which is all it is.

they are a complete fucking waste of money. Repukes need to go, NOW. They are deliberately hurting the citizens of this country by trying to take down the (FINALLY) legitimately elected President.

I can't understand why people in the media who I consider liberal seem to be acting as if this is the new Watergate.

I don't get outraged by them, just know that they are a problem. The AP one is the real one by the way. But the first amendment I have learned, matters little.

19. "Late 1990s: The Sequel" is the TeaHad's only hope.

They scandalize because they CAN. The bought media utterly hates anything even slightly to the left of Joe Lieberturd, whether they are or not.

A true free press would have exposed the Failure Fuhrer and his entire corrupt administration.

Our Purchased Fourth Estate treated him like a king.

23. No. Not one bit.

If anything, I am a little pleased that Republicans have something to gripe about. That means they have less time to do damage with insane legislation.

25. Not only NO

But HELL, NO! It is manufactured outrage to try and drag this, Democratic Administration into the filth and lack of integrity of the Nixon, Reagan, and both Bush, administrations, to tarnish the image of our President.

They are all about the payback, for having the truth exposed about Republicans' scandalous business as usual, behavior. Only they have to make up outright lies to compete and try to punish and disgrace, Democratic, innocence and hard work.

26. IMHO, the "media's" job should be simple...

In a perfect world, news outlets (right, left, and in between)
should be concerned with only one thing, reporting the FACTS of any story. They should not be paid for their opinions/spin/leaving out facts that they find uncomfortable/ etc. If you want to be paid for your OPINION, become a critic.
Personal agendas should NOT taint good hard news. Again, I said, "in a perfect world"
