    Just watched McCain bloviating to Matt Lauer; coming down heavy on the charge that the President lied, that there has been a cover up, yadda yadda yadda.

    Give Lauer credit for bringing up Condoleeza Rice lying to Congress about weapons of Mass Destruction. McCain says that's different because every intelligence agency in the world thought there were WMDs. McCain is having a sad because four Americans died who didn't have to.

    Right. Whose party cut State's budget for security? Whose party (and President) covered up months of warnings about an imminent terror attack on the U.S.? Whose party sent thousands of Americans (and allies) into a war of choice to be killed or wounded in Iraq?

    You know, the Democrats blew a huge opportunity to do some national housecleaning and reconciliation when they wasted two years of Congressional control and didn't have hearings on what happened in the previous 8 years.

    It's obvious the Republicans are pulling out the old playbook they used to make Bill Clinton's second term hell: create a scandal, ride it for all it's worth, and let the country go to hell while they obstruct everything.

    Mr. President? This is what 4 years of Mr. Nice Guy have got you. Time for serious hardball - they're at war with you whether you want to recognize it or not.

      and everybody knows it.  McCain is just bloviating and everybody knows it.

      Impeachment attempt means that the Republican party will never carry a single African-American or Latino vote in decades to come.

        They figure that as long as they get elected to state houses they can impede, obstruct and plain old forge reasons to keep the black and latino vote down.

      of evidence in the CIA that there was no WMDs.
