Democrats defending Susan Rice makes sense, but we’re talking about the media here and a guy who claims to be a Republican. And the overall message is that they don’t care about the cover up. And they really don’t care that Rice was the tip of the spear of the cover up — the voice of the Administration that said in no uncertain terms that until the election’s over, we’re not going to have a discussion about a successful terror attack on Obama’s watch.

We knew then we were being lied to at the time, but after the testimony of David Petraeus last week, it’s not even arguable anymore. But the media has obviously decided that’s okay.

One of Scarborough’s defenses was, “This is what White House’s do.” He also said that no one called for Colin Powell to step down as Secretary of State after he gave incorrect testimony about WMDs during his tenure — which is a false equivalence.

Our intelligence community and their counterparts throughout the world believed Iraq had WMDs.

When Susan Rice did her talk show round robin with altered talking points, our intelligence infrastructure already known for three entire days that Libya had been a terror attack. For the sake of national security, Powell said what he and everyone else believed to be true. Rice said what she and everyone knew to be a lie, for the sake of Obama’s reelection.

I used to have some respect for “morning joe” before he went in the tank.

Now I mourn for the fate of the country!

Police say a wrong-way driver ended up going 18 miles on an interstate in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Times-Leader of Wilkes-Barre reports (http://bit.ly/S4zLIf ) police say traffic was light when it happened around 5:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day, and no one was hurt. Police responded after getting calls about a vehicle going at high speeds the wrong direction on Interstate 81 north.

Troopers say they tried unsuccessfully to get the driver’s attention using emergency lights and a spot light. Authorities say she was eventually stopped using a roadblock in Laflin, about 18 miles from where she started in Dickson City.

Anyone ever see the barrier at the rental car lots or parking lots?

Drive the wrong way and you’ll get a few feet and then you;ll need new tires.

Why are these roadways unprotected?

Seems simple enough to me.
