Well, I do. I care because it shows Hillary's hubris and supreme confidence in her ability to drive the conversation in the direction she wants.

She has been accused by one competent source (William Safire) of being a congenital liar. Years of practice of deception and manipulation have made her an expert, and in that regard she is dangerous. She is dangerous not only because she is a convincing liar but because she is personally ambitious. She wants power simply because of the allure of power. She was even willing to back Obama to achieve her goal of becoming POTUS.

The lie she told in public is far easier to prove that the gun running story.

At the end of the day, the U.S. is better in some respects because of Obama, worse in others because of Obama.

See, I can agree with that. Obama has made mistakes, who doesn't? Although, he has done more good than bad.

True. But only because Benghazi has never been mentioned on the other channels.

Fox News provides a worthwhile service. FoxaPhobes pay their own price for their fear of the truth. It was the Foxaphobes that Jonathan Gruber was talking about when he referred to "stupid American voters"; the Obama administration counts on Foxaphobes to provide it with a constant 47% of people who will vote while remaining uninformed.

Racism got him elected.
I'm white. In this example, let's say you're white.
If I vote for you SOLELY on the fact that I am white, and you are white, I'm a racist.
If I vote for the other guy based SOLEY on his/her skin color, I'm racist.

If a person of color voted for him SOLEY on the fact that they are a person of color, they are racist.
And don't even get me started with the 'I'm black and didn't vote for him because he is black' argument.
If race played any part of a vote for him, it was a racist vote... period.

This in stark comparison to the field of (D) candidates which are loaded with executive experience, have records of accomplishments, and most importantly are trustworthy.

If the (D) frontrunner is any indication, you live in a very deluded and/or partisan world to make such sweeping statements about all the (R's) considering the alternate.

Amazing how each one of those wonderful Republican candidates currently lose if the election was today to Hillary.

And I actually hate Bush slightly more than I hate Obama, which is already a whole lot. But I have to be fair about what he did... which was destabilize one of the last secular dictatorships in the Middle East, fight a civil war for the Shiite militias and power-drill torturers, and then hand the country over to Iranian sock puppets. The Benghazi thing was qualitatively a different blunder. Not necessarily worse, but different. More traitorous, less murderous, I guess you could say.

The blood of all of Libya is on the hands of Hilary, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and Barack Obama. And the rape gang b/s was all an enormous lie.
So how do you feel about Ronald Reagan and the Iran-Contra affair?
Seems like most Presidents going back 60 years has some type of blood on there Hands

Indeed.

But Hill does not get to run against them all. She must run against one - the winner of the nomination.

And he will have all the votes.

I would say most presidents back to George Washington have blood on their hands.

Stop right there with the DOW.

You CANNOT be serious. Artificially-low interest rates are pumping up the stock market. As long as TINA (there is no alternative) is in effect, the DOW will soar.

And it's this same QE, BTW, that has been responsible for the biggest transfer of wealth, in the form of near-zero interest, from the middle class to the rich in order to bail out the banks.

Give me a break.
