Also legal fees over the affair a GOP women had with another GOP staffer who is suing reached 85 thousand here at the MN Captial. The Dems stated the tax payers should not have to be stuck with that bill. The other good news is Obama leads Mitt by seven points in a new poll.

Just one more of the dirty little scandals the GOP prays will just go away?
Of course, no longer being a MN resident, you don’t care a bit that our tax bucks are going to defend the GOP against the illegal sexual discrimination suit brought against the Senate, right?

Nice try but that doesn’t explain jimmys post on this topic. It makes no sense and has nothing to do with Holder. You taking care of jimmy now?

jimmy repeats his daily talking points memo from the New York Times “poll”. Details of respondents totaled 1,002 respondents with 734 “likely” voters show 47% Male, 53% Female, with 33% Repubilcan, 26% Independent, and 38% Democrat. When compared to the latest Gallup Poll results(2011 and has changed from even then) of party affiliation in the USA identified 27% Republican, 40% Independent, and 31% Democrat, one could have questions about the NY Times Poll methodology and its results.

Democrats (NY Times) do like to fix their polls so that everything leans heavily to their chosen one. This is good though, even with a majority of women and demoncrats Obama is barely in front.
Just think how it would look if they did an honest poll, Gov Romney would be kicking Obama’s butt!

Jimmyd, it is time for you to accept the possibility, perhaps probability that BO will be defeated. It is a long time to when we cast our ballots, but Obamma’s prospects can not look infralible to you. Gallup and Rasmussen both have your man down at 43% compared to Romneys 48%. Undecided go 2/1 against the incubent! I plan to work hard for Mitt Romney and all Republicans this election cycle and I am very optimistic unlike my feelings in 2008.

The rest of the company holds Holder in contempt already, glad to see Congress climbing on board.
What a corrupt administration, giving guns to Mexican drug lords and feeding secret national security information to the US press. Can’t wait to some of these guys prosecuted for treason, who knows may Obama will be the first US President tried, convicted, and sentence executed for treason.

The Huffington Post reported that Romeny tried leaning on the FL gov to tone down the good news on the economy. Go figure, what else can you expect from a corporate Raider?

Huffington Post is such a good resource for truthful and accurate reporting. NOT!

What news source(s) do you rely on Elton? Your responses take a very narrow/right path. Just curious.

Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, St Paul Pioneer, WSJ.
I don’t listen to radio because I just don’t have time during the day, somebody has to pay taxes. Most of information comes from printed material but I do enjoy watching the nutty talking heads in the evening occasionally.
Where do you get your information Nora?

Mostly the radio – public radio or satalite. Morning Joe on the way to work ( I pay taxes too).
Download podcasts from NPR – I prefer public radio and tv because they bring in a Dem & Rep to offer counterpoints.
I also flip back & forth between MSNBC and FOX to see how each is cover the day’s news – what story each has prioritized for example.
And of course WCTRIB

One thing I do like about the BBC is that they pretty much deliver the news ‘deadpan’ without all the loud voices, the fake laughter, all the slants.

BBC is also public broadcasting, just from another country. I do occasionally watch BBC but I find it not only tilts left but also anti-American way to much.

South Dakota has higher property taxes than Minnesota- so he’s paying the same and making less $$$. They ( repub’s ) fall for that b/s all the time.

There are only 2 that I can think of that consistently have Dems and Repubs on, Public Broadcasting and Fox News. We can disagree on just how liberal or conservative the Dems and Repubs they chose are but at least both try to present both sides.
Holder is right this is an election year tactic especially with some Republicans who are merely undermining law enforcement. Again smoke and Mirrors, a witch hunt that rivals Salmen, but in the end nothing will become of it and the Repugs know this, but they hope for the worst as they try and undermine the Whitehouse…..Sad bunch this party is!

If that is all it is why doesn’t Holder turn the information over? If there is nothing to hide just turn over the papers and make the Republicans look like fools, wouldn’t that benefit the Democrats more then stonewalling congress.
What is Obama and Holder hiding?

Holder is laughing at these clowns. The Republicans know they are sitting at the botttom of the toliet bowl, and the voters have their hands on the handle ready to flush them down for another 4yrs!

Holder is running scared and is hiding behind Obama’s skirt.

“bring in a Dem & Rep to offer counterpoints” That would of course include Fox.

Just a few questions! What is being hidden by executive privledge? Did AG Holder knowingly give false information to congress? Did President Obama have protected communication about this topic with Holder? Our President has claimed to have NO previous knowledge about this illegal gun running operation!! Was this gun running operation to serve as a basis to limit our gun rights?
An American border agent died as a result to this operation which I believe is and was an illegal transfer of firearms. WHO AUTHORIZED THIS OPERATION? WHAT AND WHEN DID OUR PRESIDENT KNOW ABOUT THE TRANSFER OF SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPONS? We need answers! Obama and Holder are either covering up, incompetent, or stupid or perhaps some combination of above.

The statues are very clear on this matter, the Pres. can only invoke executive privilege if the matter is internal between the executive branch and his appointee’s if in fact the Pres. had no part in these matters then his executive order is not valid. so by invoking executive privilege, the glaring question presents itself, which is —WHAT DID THE PRES. KNOW, AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT.
