No, the problem isn't Conservatives. The problem is Republican leadership. No Republican in a leadership role has articulated what Republicans would do if voters put their confidence in them in this 2014 election. Republicans are running a "look how bad Obama and the Dems are" campaign to the exclusion of a positive Republican agenda worthy of support by a majority of voters. There is no cohesive agenda. This strategy isn't going to cut it.
The most direct path to a real solution to this mess is to send all these invaders to Washington DC and drop them all off at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. and the steps of the Capitol building. Those folks all made the mess; let them sort it out.

IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!

What, exactly, would IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! accomplish? Should the House vote to impeach, would Harry Reid even bother to bring the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate floor for consideration? I doubt it. Can you identify a single Democrat senator who would even consider voting to convict? No. Impeachment is a feel-good, pointless waste of time and effort with zero chance of success in the Senate that would serve to energize the progressive vote in Nov. It's the dumbest idea of the decade.
This would be the same CBO that once assured us that Obamacare would reduce our indebtedness.
While it's likely that the IRS has already eliminated any traces of the "missing" emails from servers, backups, etc., about the only chance remaining to actually get the facts is for to Congress to immediately issue a search warrant authorizing seizure / impound of all documents, computers, backup media, etc. which could contain relevant information. I wonder, could the capital police execute such a warrant? I certainly wouldn't trust Justice / FBI to do it.

Given all the references to the missing 18.5 minutes of recording attributed to Rose Mary Woods related to Nixon, it should be noted that the Nixon tapes were a surprise at the time, the product of Nixon's having installed a secret recording system of which virtually no one was aware. It was certainly not authorized by law, and there were no laws requiring those recordings to have been made at all. All the missing IRS emails are required by law to have been preserved. Very different circumstances.

Blackwell states "The Democrats will discover most of the establishment media all too willing to assist them with this task." This is not a discovery. It is an axiom.
She [Klinkhamer] went on, “Blue Cross also tells me that if I don’t pick one of the options, they will just assume I want the one for $647. ... Someone please tell me why my premium in January will be $356 more than in December?” OK, I'll tell you. Because all the incredibly stupid and gullible people like you believed the whopper lies Obama was telling to pass this rotten law by any means necessary. I wish I could say your misfortune was a comfort to those us us who understand that there ain't no such thing as a free lunch but it isn't. We also must suffer for your stupidity.
