| Help Board|| Have you ever considered an IRC chat applet within the site? - Rex on 5/22/13 at 1:57 pm|
I ask because of examples such as today's thread on the House IRS hearing. Almost all of the posts within are of the spur of the moment basis... forgettable and discardable. A live chat (which is relatively easy to implement, by the way) might work pretty well for live commentary on such events.

She has already admitted that her agency has targeted groups who are likely to not be fans of Obama politically. Will her next step be to declare that Obama instructed her to do so?

What did Obama conspire to do regarding Benghazi and what was then covered up? This time, be coherent.
Seems to me that all this fake Benghazi outrage stems from the embarrassment Mitt Romney suffered during the Candy Crowley-moderated town hall presidential debate in October.
