    What the FUCK does this have to do with Stephen Colbert?

    The GOP is an Orchestrated Deception, it seems all GOP Politicans have exact same words, talking points, during the same day. There is a pattern to this activity. Seems to me that a GOP Supporter funded the band of Terrorists to attack the Benghazi Consulant in attempt to make Obama look bad enough to sway the 2012 election to Romney, that failed. The GOP now uses Benghazi over & over again to attack Obama and make Hillary Clinton look real bad for any 2016 run for POTUS. I sense most people are not going to be fooled by the GOP, there’s more to it and perhaps someone doesn’t get paid off will come forward to blow the GOP opperative off the map. There is something very wrong and the GOP in in the midst of it…

    BUDGET 2014
    The Obama budget (long overdue) has tax changes including individual, corporate, estate and excise taxes. Those making over $1 million would pay more. It would cost them almost $83,000 on average.
    Those making $50,000–$75,000 would pay an average $ 60 more.
    Between $100,000-$200,000 about $150 on average.
    For highest incomes, limited the value of itemized items to 28%, limit the benefit of large tax-favored retirement accounts, impose a Fair Share minimum tax at 30% of adjusted gross income
    over $1 million, raise taxes on estates, gifts and certain family trusts.
    It would raise about $1 trillion over ten years. Most of new revenue will come from those making $200,000 or more.
    Why not retire Bush tax cuts for the rich and the Obama payroll tax cut for all workers?
    Why not a much higher minimum wage to increase revenue?
    Why not cut Pentagon and Medicare the two big spenders?
    Oh! I forgot. David Koch Tea Party House members want only tax cuts and spending cuts all across every agency.
    Pass a law that Federal Employees cannot accept anything with a monetary value.

    Colbert and Stewart are national treasures at this point; the only honest voices in “journalism.” Screw Faux Nooz, screw the GOP, and screw the Tea Party. These monsters will destroy this country, given half a chance. Let’s not give it to them, ok?

  • I especially liked how they’re now pointing out that the GOPers can’t even define what the supposed coverup was supposed to have covered up, or why it’s so horrible.

    The last president stood by while some three thousand people died in a terrorist attack — and he wasn’t impeached. Nor was he impeached when he deliberately failed to finish the goals of the first war he started to he could lie us into a second totally unwarranted one resulting in thousands more American deaths and literally uncounted tens of thousands of Iraqis.

    Notice some Republicans are calling for Obama to be impeached for Benghazi attack. How would

    Obama been able to do something about attack he knew nothing about in advance? Weird how CIA at the time run by a Republican General whose girlfriend leaked classified info on Libya to press. Sorry
    folks it stinks as black-op to me.

  • JayRandal

    Really odd how GOPers seem to know everything about what happened in Benghazi, Libya, when
    actually unknown who attacked US compound killing Ambassador. Were GOP affiliated paramilitary
    mercenaries somehow involved in it? Seems to have been some kind of sinister black-op done to
    damage Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton too. In fact Mitt Romney believed Benghazi attack was his
    ticket into White House. Perhaps it’s time to investigate Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen McCain and
    other Repubs in Congress pushing investigation of Benghazi.
