Hilarious....the right asking for proof and such. When all they ever have, are claims and no evidence to back anything they say about Obama up. Some story pops up about about Obama..eg..."Obama doesn't like cats"..they would twist and turn this claim to make Obama out to be the devil..of course there would be no truth or proof in the cat story but as long as it comes from conservative site, newscast, blog, or whatever...it is fact as far as they are concerned.
Take Benghazi for example..all I ever heard were MAYBE, IF TRUE, CLAIM OR SUPPOSED INSIDER telling them..did they want facts or truths before screaming Obama allowed blah blah blah..NOPE. It was fact as far as they were concerned.
Hypocrisy at it's best.
The truth is that someone within the GOP altered the emails, tailoring them to fit their narrative on Benghazi
The truth is that the GOP has used the Benghazi tragedy for subversion, much like they do with everything else. If they would do their goddamn jobs instead of manufacturing conspiracies and being obstructionists, we might be further out of the mess that began piling up when Clinton left office. I'm by no means cheerleading for democrats here and I don't always disagree with people on the Right, I even call some of them friends... but this whole thing was ridiculous from the beginning.

you have done nothing but attack posters who acknowledge this truth
you haven't presented anything that counters it
No matter what side of the fence you are on, it isn't acceptable and we need to start rejecting this type of BS.
Elections should be won or lost by merit, not on lies. And Representatives are elected to represent their districts within a functioning government, not continuously thwart the will of the people.
I just happen to like the truth more than I dislike the current crop of elected and appointed democrats. It is the truth I'm defending and lies I'm attacking.
you are applying negative behaviors to only the GOP
If you know that to be the truth, you won't have any trouble providing a source to those altered emails. I'll be waiting, but I certainly won't be holding my breath.
You should pull your head out of the sand before you make such an ignorant claim. Here is the first one, and this is the second one.

March 2005: After the embarrassing scandal involving Dan Rather’s use of forged documents in a one-sided 60 Minutes hit piece aimed at President Bush just before the 2004 presidential election, CBS announced Rather would leave the CBS Evening News on March 9, 2005, a year earlier than planned.
Meanwhile, Democrats were not satisfied with Bossie’s resignation. They noted that Burton himself released the transcript, and they called on the congressman to resign as well. “A committee staff member should not be made the scapegoat for Chairman Burton’s mistakes, missteps and misdeeds,” then-House Democratic Leader Dick Gephardt said. Indeed, Burton himself said, “I take responsibility for those mistakes,” but never resigned or faced censure.

A pathetic double standard. They probably don't even realize that they are doing it! Their heads must be so far up certain orifices that they are wearing stomachs for hats!
Yep, because they are the ones acting like children on this particular issue which is what the thread is about.
The White House made public, the emails they sent to congress when the inquiries began. Those emails are now (as Indigo posted) part of the Congressional records, if they didn't match up don't you think the GOP would be screaming their fool heads off?
If you can't see the difference between what the GOP doctored and the originals
this is truly a pointless debate as it takes choice and will to deny it.
Do the two sets of emails match up?

So basically Republicans have made up yet another fake story to attack this president with.
Can't stop a bunch of desperate douches bags from repeating the same lies 500 times until they believe their own lies... The conservative credoedit on 17-5-2013 by joemomma because: (no reason given)
You yourself posted different quotes of both so obviously you've seen them
your demand for proof makes no sense
are you alluding to ABC lying about leaked emails and/or CBS lying about the actual emails?
