Fine example of Obama and his new era of transparency...
"Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering."

Grandstanding Chaffetz. There were three state department employees injured during the Benghazi attack, they, along with approx two dozen CIA employees were evacuated from the Benghazi CIA base and then out of the country. The injured were sent to Ramstein Military Hosp. The names of two of the injured were eventually made public.

They are not obligated to speak privately with Chaffetz and I suspect the CIA employees have been instructed not to talk to anyone in congress without being subpoenaed.

Workers have always had the choice to either seek work at union shops, or not.

Right to work is wrong.

Not only that:

" Advocating for the working man doesn’t pay too poorly, it seems. Here’s a list of the annual salaries and benefits earned by the nation’s top labor officials, according to the Labor Department. This data is based on 2011 filings: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka –$293,750. National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel –$460,060

Service Employees International Union President Mary Kay Henry –$290,334.

The Liberal Media is trying to portray Obama as the 21st century FDR so Obama should embrace FDR position on Public Unions and dissolve them!!
FDR believed that “[a] strike of public employees manifests nothing less than intent on their part to obstruct the operations of government until their demands are satisfied. Such action looking toward the paralysis of government by those who have sworn to support it is unthinkable and intolerable.” What FDR feared about Public Unions is playing out in the streets of Detroit!!
The unions are the ones dissolving the jobs so they can gain more money for the jobs going to 3rd world developing nations they are done with USA just window shows now jobs are going more and more not many low skilled industry for the High School drop out no trade jobs DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICAN HAVE sold the people out now they point fingers it's one GOVERNMENT so anything BOTH SIDES ARE RESPONSIBLE BUT they have the FOOLS who all fall for the finger pointing

Could be because it's not true: " "Findings are that the number of businesses and self-employed are greater on average in right-to-work states, but employment, wages, and per-capita personal income are all lower on average in right-to-work states," Stevans wrote.

But he noted that there was little "trickle down" from the business owners to the workers--the laws benefitted the business owners who did not have to contend with union contracts, but business employees didn't get those same positive effects--as evidenced by the lower salaries on average."

Your wife kicked you to the curb the minute she had enough funds to get away. Wonder why?

The topic was hatred and extremism.
I gave you several examples of Republiclown hatred and extremism towards Obama.
Rather than show Democrat hatred and extremism, you changed the subject. Meaning you don't have anything but accusations.
You always do that when you're cornered.
Spin, little Lorac, spin!!
No comparision to the kind of hatred - and violence - coming from your side of the fence.

You must have not been paying attention during GW Bush's two terms.

Someone even wrote a book on how to assassinate him.

The liberal media just looked the other way.

Try and imagine someone writing a book like that about Obama.
