Because they are trying to defend the indefensible.

Maybe because the only Republican defense seems to be 'No fair bringing up our misdeeds!'

Politics is the wrong game for people who think they can throw mud without having it thrown right back in their face.

Why is it sinners seem to believe they have a right to complain about EVERYONE's sins while happily ignoring their own?

Yep, excusing a man for selling weapons to an enemy is indefensible!

WTF are you talking about? Are you talking about Obama or Holder? They BOTH did EXACTLY that.

I will call a spade a spade no matter what side of the political aisle a politician is on.

Just because there are many on both sides of the aisle who are hypocritical, doesn't mean I have to be.

I guess some people feel differently.

Oh B.S. The Republicans had years of this flack with George Jr. in office!

You notice that the libs are suddenly MIA? I guess their handlers haven't given them their daily talking points to spin this into blaming Sarah Palin, or global warming..How sad that they are not allowed to think for themselves..sad indeed

Liberals are left with deflection to defend Hillary's criminal activity. Regardless of the criminal acts the Clintons have committed (and will commit) in an effort to enrich themselves at the expense of the American middle class, liberals will continue to support her.

Liberals have vacated all reason and are in the hilarious positions of supporting a pro-Wall street, anti- middle class candidate.

True, but can you really say with a straight face that either Obama or Holder are "men"?

No known federal laws were violated and some omissions could be blamed on Clinton's highly fluid schedule, which sometimes forced late cancellations. But only seven meetings in Clinton's planning schedules were replaced by substitute events on her official calendar. More than 60 other events listed in Clinton's planners were omitted entirely in her calendar, tersely noted or described only as "private meetings" — all without naming those who met with her.

Is there some reason why this is so important? I'm not getting it. Is she not entitled to have "private" meetings?

The missing or heavily edited entries in her calendar included private dinners with political donors, policy sessions with groups of corporate leaders and "drop-bys" with old Clinton campaign hands.

So, in other words, if you volunteered in her 2008 campaign and just happened to be in Washington and wanted to stop by, it had to be documented? Really?
