      Exactly. Love him but President Obama shouldn’t have picked a Republican for any high level position because Comey is a partisan hack to the max who might end up hurting Clinton. I hope Clinton doesn’t pick any Republican for anything. They’re all awful.

      There was a time earlier when then Texas Governor Perry was talking secession that I started thinking of moving all the Tea Partiers into Texas and the Dems out. Then just giving them Texas to get rid of all of them.

      Good question. Comey is trying to interfere with our elections by dampening votes for Secretary Clinton. He ought to be called out for this.

    So Anthony weiner sent pictures of his weiner from Hamas phone… From which FBI was investigating wieners weiner for sexting and accidentally found 3 state emails from huma on her phone?

      GA SGB.

      Looked up Suffolk University in Boston, and it’s a private college, so doubt if public outrage can do much for this student.

      Not making excuses for the prof, but in the Internet age It’s got to be tough for profs to weed out plagiarism (“cut and paste”) from actual independent thought by a student.

      Can’t worry about Tiffany Martinez now, there’s a nationwide election in just over a week.

      • October 28, 2016 at 5:25 pm

        Good Afternoon, arapaho415.

        In this age of short-cuts and “work smarter not harder,” I get the problems professors may have regarding plagiarism.

        To me, it didn’t seem so much about accusations of plagiarism as the perception that because she is Latina, “hence” is not a word she would use…thus, the question of whether the professor is biased and will the student get a fair shot in this class. A different POV.

    • 34 pkayden
      October 28, 2016 at 6:00 pm

      I need to hear what happens to that racist Professor. She needs to lose her job. I’m sure that Martinez is not the only minority student who that Professor is stereotyping like this. Disgusting.

      I wish Dems should focus on the GOP & media collusion in manipulating the news cycles for maximum advantage with the voters …even if it means releasing classified information;

      more focus should also be placed on the way the gop is using our money to conduct politically motivated investigation.

      this is where the greater problem is;

      if Dems ignore it and focus on public servants who may be doing their jobs under a barrage of these requests to investigate, then we are giving the gop a blank check to continue this manufacturing of fake scandals using our money & time

        it may not be popular to say this but I think we should hold off attacking the FBI director until we learn whether or not he followed the procedure that was expected of him.

        can you imagine raucous if he did not follow the steps that were expected of him and then it was later discovered by the vengeful gop during their perpetual investigations?

        I will focus my anger on :

        – the gop who run with the story, lied about it and then started fundraising of it;

        – the lazy media that did not use their internal legal departments to check the story and instead rushed to “break” it using gop talking points … as usual;

          The speech he gave when NOT prosecuting Hillary Clinton was more than enough to show he was NOT following procedure. When the FBI decides to NOT prosecute it is said in one sentence. He is trying to elect Trump – presumably because the is no way, no how, Pres Clinton will give him the time of day when she is elected.

          And – I forgot to add – I hope she opens a Dept Justice enquiry into the FBI director the day she starts in the job – or even better PBO could initiate that after the election.

      If she were as thin skinned as you, DJT, perhaps she might have. It’s not just about self-respect. It’s about maturity and being able to work with people who don’t always see eye to eye with you. Obviously, despite their “private” thoughts, they respect HRC enough to continue to work with/for her.

    do we really think that the FBI director did not consider what the implications of what his actions might be in the middle of the election?

    may be he followed the procedures that were before him.

    for those saying PBO should have never given him the job, remember that one of the reasons he did was that Comey was able to stand up to the GWB administration even if it threatened his job.

    more still, the gop did not hesitate to attack his integrity when he said that there was no reason to charge HRC.

    at the time (just a few weeks ago) many Dems were praising Comey for what they argued was him following the law … now we are questioning his integrity before we know all the facts?

    can you imagine what would be happening now if the FBI was a Dem???

    people please, we may currently disagree with what the FBI director & DOJ staff are doing but please wait until we know all the facts.

    when we over-react and start attacking public servants before we know all the facts, we are not acting any different than the gop we despise.

    just from what has happened since the current headline-grabbing story broke this morning, we can see that the facts are not fully in.

    but once we do damage to someone’s reputation, then it is much harder for us to take our actions back.

    this is a fluid story and we will have plenty of time to criticize those who acted wrongly.

  57. October 28, 2016 at 7:20 pm

    I was “anxious” (not really!) to hear how CBS would characterize this latest hulabulu. Well, didn’t disappoint. Scott P. began with saying the emails were from “Clinton’s private server.” Then he continued with the “hair on fire” reporting. But, later in the broadcast, one of the reporters did another story on this and he said, “The emails were found on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner.” Do these folks not realize how stupid they look and sound?!

    • October 28, 2016 at 7:24 pm

      I agree with whoever said wish Comey could be fired. It is a 10 year appointment. I sure hope PO calls him in and does what he does so well. Straightens him out real good, but do it with a smile on his face. I will be surprised if he doesn’t get some kind of “call on the carpet” from this President. BO does not suffer fools and sure he doesn’t look kindly on this stunt, not in THIS election season.

    The problem with a scorched earth policy is that when you have burned everything down there is nothing left to sustain the victors. This is why they have the carnival barker and a party that is imploding. They have done everything, said anything, and ransomed their souls in their quest for power for power’s sake. I am proud that PBO and all of those around him did not fall to the temptation of tit-for-tat and focused on serving the country; this has served them, us, and the world well. HRC will continue to hold her head up and march on to the prize. It is more than time out for hair-on-fire and distractions; GOTV is our mission.
