    So now politix is giving space to right wing conspiracy nuts? Can this liberal commie do a guest post while you're at it?

    @Zazziness This sounds like the guy read this web site, collected all the right wing talking points, and put them all into one article. Nothing original. Nothing intelligent. I suspect the 60% on here who favor this nonesense will love it. I know the people who use their brain will not. If they are gonna have a conservative pundit at least give me someone who makes me think. A george wills or peggy noonan, no a dimwit who has the intellectual depth of ann coulter...

    That's the best you can do? Call names, with no substance? Not surprising at all from a liberal commie. Why don't you move to a nice communist country?

    Ah. The classic Republifascist comeback of "If you don't have the same vision of America you don't love America. Love it or leave it."

    No thanks I will stay and continue to try and improve this country

    Wow the Politix has become a Tea Bag site. I would say any future discourse here would be little more than mental masturbation and that ceased to fun a long time ago.
    Did Rupert Murdock buy this site?

    Wow, an article from a Conservative viewpoint (whether you agree with it or not) and all of a sudden all the "progressives" are about to have aneurisms up in here. Relax people, its just one article! There will probably be some far-left articles that you love coming up soon. Its called balance - some from the left, some from the right.

    That's like saying to teach "balanced" science we have to have a little astronomy and a little astrology. Pffft, say I. Reality has a liberal bias.

    It's about time Politix puts up an article with the truth about what is actually going on. I know the liberals are pouncing all over this article, but they can spew all they want. They can't take it when a reality check causes them discomfort because they want to believe Obama and turn a blind eye to what is actually happening. How dare someone writes something they disagree with. They are too used to liberal media catering to them. The old saying fits here "The truth hurts." Maybe someone will learn something or be spurred to investigate what was written for themselves. Conservatives have had to do this, it's the liberals turn. I have been saying this all along, but was pounced on and bashed by liberals. Well, just let them do it. As scary as this is, it's like a breath of fresh air to finally see the truth on Politix written in a column that they put up for discussion! Not just articles written to coddle the liberals.

    @marine - truth like, I don't know, presidential polls? We've all seen how the right deals with facts. They ignore it or claim it's a conspiracy.

    under Barack Obama's capitalism-hobbling administration, This is indeed so true
    He couldnt repair the economy...or much else!!
    Liberals only know how to spend other peoples monies, and put companies out of business, and not much else!!

    I would guess Mr Hoagland is striving to collect a few more donors to his little SuperPAC. He spent about $1.7 million last year all in an effort to defeat the incumbent President, and as of 12/31/12 only had a bit more than $100,000 in the PAC account. http://goo.gl/69SOT

    Fortunately, now that he's no longer supporting Lance Armstrong ( http://goo.gl/XMa5o ) he won't have that expense and perhaps he can rely on his pal Mike Huckabee for some extra TV face time.( http://goo.gl/SgoQK ) And I don't even want to think what might have happened if Mr Hoagland had hung out with his former crew at the State Affairs Company after a couple of his bosses got out of jail.( http://goo.gl/87uh5 )

    Every little bit helps.

    I think you people are missing the point here. By having right wingers post op-eds here the Liberal side is making sure everyone remembers what hypocrites the right is being concerning Libya. The comparative is extensive but simple in totality.

    Obama told no lies prior to the attack, didn't know what happened and relied on the intelligence community and allowed a misinformation to be given out concerning the attack in Benghazi.

    GW Bush refused the advice of the intelligence community, stood before the nation and Congress claiming knowledge Congress didn't have concerning Iraq having active Nuclear, Chemical and Biological programs. He further claimed Iraq had drones with range to reach the USA and deliver those biological and chemical weapons. The month prior to Bush making these outlandish lies that even the intelligence community denied, Richard Cheney Cris-crossed the country saying Saddam Hussein had ties to Al-Queda and anyone who did not support war with Iraq was in fact, a traitor.

    Of course history has proven that Bush and Cheney lied through their teeth. At an expense of nearly 4,500 American deaths and more than 30,000 wounded, many permanently disabled. The death toll of Iraqi's has long since exceeded the amount of people that Saddam ever killed and continues to mount to this day behind the Bush/Cheney/Halliburton lies. The financial burden to the American taxpayer was more than a trillion dollars with over a billion in Halliburton over billing, phantom service billing and outright theft. For which they were not held accountable.

    The comparative is the four American died in Benghazi due to unforseen risk that the President himself has no role in day to day assessment.

    What this writer is doing is screaming to high heavens about incompetence by the Obama Administration. If that. I have yet to hear or read an apology to the American people for the travesty, the treason by the GOP for what they did in Iraq, While 4 American lives lost is regrettable, the party this writer represents was part and parcel by design in the deaths and wounding of close to a million people over many years behind outright GOP lies.

    I thank Politix for allowing this man to write and make total fool of himself. America has not forgotten what you right wingers did in Iraq. Not yet. I won't ever forget. You'll never get my vote again as long as I live.

    I agree with most of what he said but I'll bet he thinks Iran is the biggest threat to America's security. SMH. America will never be defeated by a foreign nation. No. She will crumble from within. Multiculturalism, lack of morals and values, apathy. This is what will doom America.

    If by "multiculturalism," you mean "America has people who aren't white and we're letting them be equals," too bad. Far from a weakness, our diversity is a direct result of our freedom and it's our greatest strength.
  • #39
    !
    @Zazziness Nope. That diversity is our greatest strength BS is the biggest lie ever sold. We have many of our problems because of multiculturalism. Angela Merkel and Nicholas Sarkozy are 2 world leaders who have openly said multiculturalism is a failure. More and more people are seeing it every day.

    @OhWiseOne So what are your recommendations? Renounce everybody's citizenship that does not meet your standard of being an American citizen? Only allow your interpretation of a immigrant? Seems like we tried that in the past and it did not work.

    @Roco OhWiseOne has made its desires pretty clear: form an all-white nation. Which is funny because in my book, we'd be better off if we just deported anyone who thinks like OhWiseOne. It would be hard to find a place that would take folks like that, though.

    Thankfully that wait staffer at the Romney fundraiser has an unlimited data plan! His poorly filmed video of Romney's 47% comments certainly beat your $1.8Million in negative ads. The country is better off because of it. And speaking of the country being better off. We'd all be better off if secretive Super-Pacs like Restore America's Voice from both sides of the aisle were illegal.

    Funny you should mention Mr Romney's "47%" comment. Mr Hoagland did a review of the inaugural address and make this truly astonishing statement, "(President Obama) essentially told America that he holds nearly half of the nation’s citizens in utter contempt. Such arrogance is not leadership; it is so short-sighted as to be destructive." http://goo.gl/Qea0q

    I wonder if he shared that sentiment with Mr Romney?

    I find it funny when they get a liberal commenter to make an article they jump and down singing his praises, regardless of the lies and deception. But when it is someone from the right they come in mouths foaming to discredit anything he says with comments like republifascits and do not provide any proof to counter anything said other then "Lol Republic Lol".

    On one hand Obama is doing nothing about the threat from Al Qaeda (according to this writer) and on the other hand he is a war criminal for ordering drone strikes against Al Qaeda operatives and the "innocents" that they surround themselves with (according to others). Some people want to have their snake and beat it too.

    Oh yeah, nice "photo-journalism". Take a picture of a man giving a speech from just the right angle, blur the light between his hands and voilĂ ! You make him look like he is pretending to be a wizard gazing into a crystal ball!

    !st....snake and beat it too......roflmao. 2nd....photo shopping not illegal (last weeks article) unless something "dirty" is photo shopped (and crystal balls isn't "dirty"....I think)

    @stepped_in_it I think its kinda a cool looking picture. The author's intent with it is stupid, but the picture itself is cool looking. I love spatial pictures like this one.

    @Dan_Tien I don't think it's any worse than the photos that Politix gets for most of its stories, that, captured from a series of action shots, make the subjects look insane...just about anyone is gonna look like a moron if a still photo of them is taken talking, squinting in the light, at a different angle than the camera...etc.

    The Keystone pipeline is going to be built. Stop exploiting ignorance for political gain.
    Mr Hoagland is also exploiting ignorance of how insurance works. Obamacare is no more an entitlement as being forced to insure your car is. In the same fashion employers are forced to insure their employees for disability and unemployment.
    Mr. Hoagland, if your house or car ever suffer catastrophic damage, permit me to save your work ethic by collecting the benefits from your insurance policy.

    Well, that Al-Qaida is dead is sort of like the headling "One Half Of Our Congressional Representatives Are Crooks". Al-Qaida, as it existed on 09/11/2001 IS DEAD. However, lots of new pseudo-religious homicidal fanatics have started their OWN cells/organizations under the Al-Qaida label. So, political hacks can argue away their own point of view either way ad infinitum and not be wrong. People must stop demonizing each other. The only truly objectionable thing I find President Obama doing is acting opportunistically by using a handful of isolated, albeit horrific tragedies to attempt to erode the 2nd Amendment and curry favor with the Democratic Party's rabid radical elements. There are LOTS of Democrats who are not supportive of any sort of bans, and oppose any national gun registration disguised as "keeping the results of background checks on file".
