      If some of the faux scandal stuff could be made to backfire on the Republicans.

      If it looks to the public like the Republicans are just on ongoing fishing expeditions to try to nail Obama with anything they can find, and if they can't find it, invent it, then it's going to make Obama more sympathetic in the public eye and just keep the Republican numbers poll low.

        This is what the general public hears out of DC:

        Blah blah blal they said!
        Blah blah blah no they said
        !
        Same old same old. It just the same old buzzing coming form DC and post people probably aren't listening to any of it.

        Which is a true pity. Because that's how politicians get away with this crap. There's little downside to being proven a liar and a rumor-monger. The public just yawns and forgets.
