“Edward Kennedy who proposed that a senate select committee investigate Watergate, In February 1973, the Senate voted unanimously to create that committee. Republican Senator Howard Baker was vice-chairman, and asked the key question: ”What did the president know and when did he know it?” Which Democratic senator will ask that question today?”

“Watergate was far more than one-sided spin.
Watergate was breaking and entering.”
“They tried to throw a constitutionally protected American citizen (the video maker) to the wolves solely to cover for their own screw-up and incompetence. THAT is truly despicable. And something I have never seen done by any other administration. To single out a specific citizen to offer up for fodder for their self-preservation. (I'm searching the Dictionary of Foul Derogatories for the right name for that but can't find any foul enough to match the deed.)
They've now been caught in an undeniable lie. And not just some harmless little lie, but an attempt to throw an unconnected American citizen under the bus to cover for themselves. Yes, the press will still attempt to cover for them but now it is out. Obama LIED solely to save his own reputation and at the expense of another citizen. Fact.”
“Thank you, FOX NEWS, for taking this seriously and keeping th einvestigation alive while the mainstream media liars did everything they could do to deny, obscure and cover for the administration. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2013/05/exclusive-benghazi-talking-points-underwent-12-revisions-scrubbed-of-terror-references/
ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.
"Those talking points originated from the intelligence community. They reflect the IC’s best assessments of what they thought had happened,” Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing on November 28, 2012. “The White House and the State Department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those two institutions were changing the word ‘consulate’ to ‘diplomatic facility’ because ‘consulate’ was inaccurate."
“On March 12, 2013, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and other intelligence officials testified about current and future threats to the United States. Senator Ron Wyden asked: "Does the NSA collect any kind of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans? Clapper answered: "No, sir." Wyden: "It does not?" Clapper: "Not wittingly. There are cases where they could, inadvertently, perhaps..."
And top-down blatant liars, to boot.”

“well then he was not paying attention. How can he not know something that we have all known was happening since the ATT whistleblower Mark Klein told the truth about what the government was up to...”

“Nonsense. It was already on the record and sometimes our public officials can't read.”
