10/23 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Meet the New Producers

October 23, 2015

Cliff Schecter explains the absurdity of the Benghazi hearings and the nonsense Republican scandal machine. Trey Gowdy admits that the hearings exposed something new. What if Republicans were held to the same standards as Democrats. How delusional Republicans are about national security. Why did the Republicans focus on Benghazi? The awful parts of Joe Biden’s record and why he is wrong about Republicans. Will Hillary Clinton be more influenced by the left. Why Lincoln Chafee failed as a candidate. Should Lawrence Lessig be in the next Democratic Debate? And Paul Ryan is already caving to the Freedom Caucus even before he becomes Speaker of the House.

On The Fun Half: meet the new MR producers Kelly and Matt. Ben Carson says Benghazi was “present” for Mitt Romney. More fallout from the Canadian elections and your calls and IMs.
