WTF? Why do Conservatives ignore the log in their candidates eyes and obsess over the speck in the liberal's? The same reason liberals do. It is human nature!

That is why partisan media is such crap. It strokes your ago and panders to your biases.

Seeing you are posting ones from before the transcripts Issa refused to release, it doesn't really matter because all you are doing is ignoring the facts by pretending the facts stopped in May.

Because unlike Republicans, Democrats have no moral or ethical standards. Unlike the Republican Party, the Democrat Party doesn't let minor details like larceny, money laundering, rape, murder, and terrorism get in the way of Democrats winning elections.

For some odd reason, you feel Issa was the only one privy to that little nugget.
It was a bi-partisan grilling.

Democrat President selectively enforces portions of his signature achievement? Who cares.
Democrat Secretary of State covers up terrorist attack that killed four people. "What difference does it make?"

Democrat Attorney General sells guns to Mexican drug cartels resulting in hundreds of murders. Who cares.

Democrat Secretary of State causes helicopter crash that kills more than thirty Navy Seals. Crickets.

Republican Governor's staff member orders lanes of the George Washington Bridge closed. BLOODY MURDER! BIGGER THAN WATERGATE!

I like Christie and hopefully he had no part in this. The problem with this is that his advisers used their power to purposely manipulate a situation because they could. They had no purpose except to create chaos.

This just seems to be a recurring theme among liberals, and this Chris Christie non-issue is the latest example. Republicans are supposed to be perfect, yet Democrats are more than willing to let other Democrat's slide.

You might disagree with GOP policy, but Republicans hold other Republicans to much higher standards as evidenced by the Tea Party. Yeh, you might not like the Tea Party, but at least there's some accountability required for establishment republicans.

Another good example is George W. Bush's approval rating. He had close to 25% toward the end of his term as even Republicans abandoned the ship, but Obama enjoys a floor of 40% and nothing will ever change that.
Why do conservatives always ask these totally biased, ideologically loaded questions? It is definitely not to start any kind of fruitful discussion. I think it is probably a form of passive-aggressive behavior. They want to make a statement, not ask a question, but don't want to come out and say so directly. So, they play games.
