Okay, last night, Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Grand Bargain" went up.
We're supposed to take that sop, an increase in taxes on the rich, and be thrilled that they gutted the safety net.
They really think we're stupid.
Today on Tell Me More (NPR), the guests were Michael Sullivan, Joe Davidson, Rey Junco, Keli Goff, Trevor Lawrence and Cameron Crowe.
Lucy Madison (CBS News) reports on the Benghazi attack and the lies that followed:
Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., argued this morning in a Fox News appearance that even more "troubling" than Rice's statements regarding Benghazi were those of the president: "If you recall, the president went not only on Letterman, Univision, the day after the CBS interview and then 14 days later before the United Nations, he did not call it a terrorist attack, nor did he reference it as connected to al Qaeda or an al Qaeda-affiliated group. In fact, the only reference he made to al Qaeda in that UN speech to the world was that al Qaeda had been weakened and Osama bin Laden was dead."
"I think this raises additional questions," she said. "It goes beyond Ambassador Rice. First of all, why were the talking points changed? It doesn't make any sense to me that we were trying to dupe al Qaeda. That doesn't pass the laugh test. But also, why was the President out 14 days later and still fail to go call it a terrorist attack to the world?"
The lies were told in public, there need to be public hearings. No more of this closed door testimony and we'll come out and tell you what was said and we'll tell you one thing and our rivals will tell you something else. Public hearings.
