Fox News political analyst Juan Williams on Sunday told conservative colleagues Karl Rove and Brit Hume that their obsession about a so-called scandal over last year's terrorist attack in Benghazi was "all in your head, baby."

Well, the GOP is the party that's got nothin' to offer the American people (but pain, misery and hell on earth) so they have to harp on something. And does Rove really want to go there with the BushCo Admin that lied us into war and the unnecessary deaths of almost 5,000 US soldiers with thousands more maimed and suffering from PTSD that they don't want to pay for,,,don't want to "support our troops?"

The obsession to impeach. The party of 4th graders are getting really old.
Juan really balances out fox, eh? Do they still use that BS phrase on their sheep?

It's a "done issue" in Juan Williams' and other liberals heads - but NOT in the heads of true conservative Americans!

We dont who is responsible for lying to the American people! Rove yelled. You may be comfortable with the American people being told a deliberate lie by the administration, but Im not. And I think we need to get to the bottom of it.

Not the first time Rove has gone ballistic on air, of course, he's never been right but that doesn't matter. Still, this statement is intriguing. I'd like to know who concocted the deliberate lies the American people were told by the Bush administration that led us into Iraq and cost considerably more than four lives. Karl was a big part of that. And his slinking out of DC doesn't change it. If he is so concerned about the American people being lied to then I think HE ought begin by telling all of us the truth about the beginnings of the war in Iraq. Something tells me he isn't much concerned about those lies to the American people. Which says this latest blow up is political, not an actual outrage over truth telling. How this man has any credibility whatsoever is beyond me. He shouldn't be allowed any sort of forum, he should be in jail over outing Valerie Plume - still. Not frothing at the mouth on national television.

Thanks Carrie for this story. I don't ever watch Fox so it was news to me. Sounded like a shouting match to me with one wanting to win, like they were going to get points for their thinking. lol

Juan didn't shut down anything but the discussion on how dumb he is....for anyone th even think that the Benghazi deaths are "over baby" because Juan says so probably also believes That black cows have chocolate milk. Sorry for the typos this is what happens when I'm on my IPad. I've learned to live with it LOL

Oh dear old Turd Blossom really loves the meme even though the Benghazi uproar has effectively been negated for now due to two more serious scandals: the Department of Justice's "massive and unprecedented" seizure of Associated Press phone records and Edward Snowden's leak of continuing NSA mass surveillance under the PATRIOT Act. They should be reminded that there were 13 separate incidents where U.S. consulates were attacked during President Bush's tenure The GOP and Fox's fixation on Benghazi is partisan propaganda, ignoring the fact that terrorists will always try and attack American interests.

Every word out of Rove's mouth for the last 50 years has been a lie and he has the audacity to call someone else a liar? It's nice to see Juan Williams get one right for a change.

Sue T, I want whatever you're smoking. The responsibility, if there is any, belongs to the Republicans for the drastic cuts for embassy and consulate funding.

Juan Williams stumbles all over himself just about every time he is asked to weigh in on an important political topic.

Republicans aren't to blame any more than the democrats but, of course, you both know that. Because to say you don't know that as truth would put you in a position of being terribly wrong about politics in the US.

Diane, I hate to be nasty, but you lie like a rug and keep spewing your garbage even after it has been proven wrong. When I first started criticizing you I tried to do it respectfully, but you keep posting absolute ignorance and hateful crap, and apparently you suffer from the republican disease of loving to lie and having no respect for anyone who disagrees with you, so I've had to start insulting you to try to get your attention. I admit I do it differently than you do, but neatly every post you do insults everyone who respects the truth. As Harry Truman said, "When the Republicans stop lying about me I'll stop telling the truth about them."

Stop the lying and I'll start ignoring you.

Here's why i think you can't get GOP OPs jobs online any more. We found them out. How to get the job today...Go to the GOP site and get vetted . Prove you're a sheep for them and then you get hired.

There is no other reason for these middle aged people to spend so much time here and NEVER agree with any Progressive.

My, my, my....the low information bully pulpit is working in tandem. Let me see if I can decipher what you are actually saying irrespective of the FACT that Obama did not win either election by a landslide which translates into nearly 50% of Americans are not PROGRESSIVES. Both of you like to pretend that only a few Americans are not progressives. By virtue of the two elections you are both living in your own progressive world. Take a look at progressive California....there's a fine example for you....people moving out of that state every day and towns are filing bankruptcy because they can't possibly fund the entitlements and the high pensions. California never saw an illegal they didn't want to put into a house paid for by the tax payers. How is that working for California?

So, what Heckle and Jekel are saying is this: If you, as an American, do not identify yourselves as progressives, those who believe in socialism for America redistributive wealth, nanny state America dumbing down the poor to keep them there without offering them jobs and a sense of pride to get off of welfare, then by golly in their vernacular when someone doesn't think like you there is something wrong with them. The difference between progressive mindsets and conservative Americans is that conservatives are patriotic, believe in God (not all but 80%), believe in the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman, have serious issues with women using abortion as birth control and killing a human life in late term abortion as well, and believing in personal responsibility Americans who chart a path in life to support themselves and their families.....now, wow,that's quite a group for you two to hate! That puts you in a special class IMO.

Quite frankly, many conservatives miss the leadership qualities of George W. Bush. He was decisive and knew what he was doing. Although Iraq wasn't a popular war, GWB was able to get a huge vote in congress, he had a plan and he had an exit strategy. In contrast, you elected an African American simply because he was an African American, to the highest office in our country. He was a community organizer and nothing more. There are millions of brilliant African American men and women in America although the progressives would insist on pushing slavery 24 hours a day when, in fact, you never knew a slave and neither did your parents. You simply backed the narcissist who just happened to have a Harvard Law degree. Obama was groomed as early as 2002 to run for President and as a senator he voted "present" on over 100 bills. Extraordinary for a senator then and now because no one before him or after him as ever done that. Now we are seeing the results of that election where Obama is like a skinny kid waiting around for Valerie Jarratt to tell him what to do next. I believe Obama will go down in history as the most disrespected president in the history of our country.

I'm waiting for the election in 2014, a tsunami vote like 2010, with high hopes of a republican congress because if there were a perfect storm for a republican congress....we've got it now. With Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Obamacare, gun control, the list goes on.....that less than 50% who did NOT vote for Obama laced with those who wished they had never voted for Obama....I would say that the "progressives" are in for hard times ahead. You don't have the majority of the American people identifying as progressives anymore.

I would never spend time trying to win anyone over to the republican side of politics on this forum. That is not why I am here. I am here to give the truth, the other side of politics since Obama took office with the biased left wing media in his court. Now the tide seems to have turned. I mean, how many newspapers and media outlets can go out of circulation from low viewership?

All this to say to you, Jason, and to you, Robert, is that I respect your freedom of speech even though I don't agree with you. You can say whatever you want to say but as long as you both are on Care 2 you must abide by the Code of Conduct so personally attacking me will not be good for either one of you.

I accept that you are progressives in the purest sense of the category of politics but I don't agree with your politics. What I know is that you are a minority group in America. I look to 2014 and 2016 for a new direction for America. We need strong leadership that will, hopefully, make us forget that Barack Hussein Obama was president for eight years....eight years of low growth for our country, an embarrassing weakened foreign affairs agenda and higher taxes. We simply need a patriotic American, who believes in the American people who built this country on personal responsibility with great pride. We need to elect a president who stops funding the slackards and illegals in our country.

So, chew on this post, boys. Have fun with it. However, there is absolutely nothing you can say that trumps personal responsibility Americans and getting Americans off of welfare by putting them to work.

But, give it a whirl....

Not progressive means you're not for progress for the people. A corporate fascist. Eisenhower was progressive. Republicans quit being progressive with the elitist bastard, Ronny Reagan. He thought that the rich shouldn't have to pay for our infrastructure. We are still a broken country because of that idiotic philosophy.

Save it, social conservative home wrecker. You'll never figure out why that is true. Just keep on hating.

I'm NOT progressive for a nanny state where half the population is on food stamps and welfare. Not for that at all. I believe in capitalism. Capitalism built our country and it's the only thing that can save it. If YOU want a more progressive "for the people" socialism existence all you need to do is pack your backs and point yourself in the direction of a European country. America is unique and believe it or not is still the land of opportunity so much so that we have people in line hoping to become a citizen of the USA from other countries.

I don't hate anyone so for you to continue that line of dialogue is absurd. Who is it that I am hating? I believe YOU should pay your share of taxes and I have should do the same. Welfare is for those who need a helping hand up during a tough time financially. It has morphed into three and four generations living on welfare. Do you have a problem with that? I do. Do you have a problem with over $60 billion a year being funded by the taxpayers in fraud and abuse of our social systems? I do.

The "rich" in our country more than pay their fair share. I believe ALL Americans should have some skin in the game paying for our infrastructure, Jason.

The only philosophy that seems out of whack is yours thinking that one class of Americans should pay the lion's share of the taxes. Corporations hire millions of Americans and provide benefits for them. 53% of Americans work for small businesses. Yes, I believe in capitalism. I am an American.

Nanny state: A phrase made up by the greedy elitists that refuse to pay for the upkeep of their nation that causes wide spread unemployment.

"The "rich" in our country more than pay their fair share"

They absolutely do NOT! They hide their takings off shore. You are WRONG again!

IRS unlocks UBS vault hiding Americans evading taxes ...
One is a U.S. business owner who hid a tax-evasion scheme well into the seven figures. Another is an elderly American who kept money in an offshore account over fear for the security of the U.S. banking system. And then there are the children of...

Obama blew these tax cheats wide open. Because Romney claimed amnesty and paid his taxes after getting caught, he couldn't divulge his taxes for the last 10 years. You are ALWAYS WRONG! When are you going to start learning? Never, I fear. You support greed and its evil doings.

Jason, let us, please, agree to disagree. You are an emotional poster to the extreme and in so doing you miss the big picture IMO.

I'll leave it at that.

I believe our large corporations should be given "benefits" for providing millions of jobs and healthcare benefits for Americans. Some have moved their business overseas but many have not. We need to make it a good deal for American companies to stay in America.

So, the two of us need to let it go. We simply do not agree. I could say more but I won't because your mind is closed. I'll keep my open for the American people who have jobs because of large corporations and, of course, our small businesses.

You are far too difficult a person to reason with because of your anger. Stay your course and I'll stay mine. I won't respond to anymore of your comments. I will accept that we are of a very different mindset.

NO! You have no purpose here other than to spread GOP lies and disrupt liberal minded people!

We can't go to your forums and post one bit of correctional truth without getting the verbal hate fest and boot.

Face it. You people are nothing like our people. Yours are destroying a country from the inside out...since Reagan! NO! Your lies just anger us as we watch the destruction. NO! You post like you're being paid! NO! You get what you give. NO!

I have zero stomach for elitists, that look at us as useless eaters and take away our right to be a social people. People that aspire to BE elite and act like them, even though they are just like us and will be treated by them the same way... Puuuuke!

We defeated Hitler but it looks like the brain washed aren't going to let us defeat the 4th reich.
