Here's those crazy questions again....

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple location is required to answer the first question.
A simple source of money is required to answer the second question.

How about you answer these questions....

How many illegal aliens are in the country?
What is your source?

I think a more accurate number is 30 million. I recall 15 years ago the official government estimate was 12 million, and everybody thought that number was low then.

So, what number of illegal aliens should be written into the law to give special consideration for voting rights?

How many illegal aliens should the law both parties agree on specify?

The Democrats don't want to put a number in that law.
That's because theyu know very well there are more like 30 million, and not that ludicrous 11 million number. Hell, there are 11 million just in the two states of California and Texas.

What number should be written into that "bipartisan" Democrat-RINO law?

Scenes from the Conservative Bunker The National

Review summit's message: Obama is out to "annihilate" the GOP

So we had House Speaker John Boehner last week telling the Ripon Society (apparently, it still exists) that Obama wanted to “annihilate” the GOP. And the National Review summit kicked into gear with Paul Ryan on Saturday morning repeating the threat, in somewhat milder terms: Obama, he declared,“needs to delegitimize the Republican Party—and House Republicans, in particular. He’ll try to divide us with phony emergencies and bogus deals. He’ll try to get us to fight with each other—to question each other’s motives—so we don’t challenge him.” The message got through to the several hundred disconsolate attendees. One, an accountant from New Jersey by the name of Tony (“not Soprano”) told me that he saw Obama’s goal being to “make [Republicans] irrelevant. That’s how he’s going to get rid of [them].” And how would he encourage that irrelevance?“By lying. Like he’s been doing for four years.”

But it’s easy to come to post-defeat events like the National Review summit looking for flashes of irrational resentment or paranoia. More interesting is to try to find glimmers of self-scrutiny, and the summit, which was held close on the heels of a Republican National Committee confab in Charlotte, did not disappoint. To their credit, some of the conservative luminaries in attendance were candid and searching to an extent I had not seen whatsoever on the campaign trail last year. Here are a few such glimpses that stood out to me:

1. George W. Bush exists!

4. Maybe low taxes for the super-rich are not the best foundation for a party platform.

6. Maybe empirical measures matter after all.

8.“You didn’t build that” was a poorly-chosen fixation.

9. The Obama administration’s move to require contraception coverage in most insurance plans was perhaps not a suicidal overreach after all.

10. The voter-fraud bogeyman was a distraction.

Now, it was not all truth-telling at the Omni Shoreham. Party reformation is going to take more than one winter weekend holed up in the cellar. The elected officials who came by to speak were, on the whole, far less bracing and self-critical than the pundits and experts on hand. Scott Walker spent most of his lunchtime speech basking in nostalgia over his win in the Wisconsin recall election last year, making nary a mention of the fact that Wisconsin voters had months later favored not only Obama but the quite liberal Tammy Baldwin for the Senate. Ken Cuccinelli, the arch-conservative Virginia attorney general running for governor, spent much of his time talking about the need for liberal-minded law schools to introduce “natural law” to the curriculum. Cruz, meanwhile, tossed out some pretty worn lines for a guy who’s supposed to be the party’s great fresh hope, including a riff about Obama wanting to turn the U.S. into socialist-style Europe, where “the rich do just fine” but “what you don’t see are any rich people who used to be poor.” In fact, as Rick Santorum dared to talk about during his primary bid, the U.S. has now fallen behind much of Europe on measures of social mobility. The gist of Cruz’s pitch was a “darkest before the dawn” argument—that the horror of Barack Obama would give rise to a second coming.“These are dark days, but we’ve seen dark days before,” he said.“It took Jimmy Carter to get us Ronald Reagan.”

It did not take much imagination to realize who Cruz thought would play the role of Reagan. And he did not seem overly perturbed by the subsequent question from the audience, from an ex-Romney campaign staffer, now with the conservative website Free Beacon, who had the temerity to note that, unlike Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama had, you know, just won a second term.

History is replete with situations budding in one administration and ripening in the next. Obama has spent trillions 'fixing' everything from schools to roads to jobs with NOTHING to show for it, so WTF? We're entering the fifth year of a phantom recovery, one that you argue is here, but 40 million Americans are waiting to see.

I also have selfish reasons for doing this. I'm closing in on 80 peanut judge-its today and maybe this can propel me to a triple digit personal best.

<quoted text>Obama was asleep and taxes. How's that?
Let's see....
Al Qaeda engages in a 7-hour attack specifically targeting the Ambassador and the real-time video is being watched in the White House, and nobody wakes the president?(I believe nobody in the White House thought Obama was important enough to keep informed on this event, though.)

Got a source for that info, Obama sleeping while the real-time video of Al Qaeda killing Americans for 7 hours was being watched in the White House?
Got a source for the orders from the White House to stand down all of the units that had been placed specifically to respond to an attack on our embassy? Basically, who in the White House gave the order to let Al Qaeda continue killing Americans? In other words, since Obama was asleep, who was acting as president and giving those orders?(... Vallerie Jarrett, of course.)

So, please be definitive. What source states Obama slept through the entire attack while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans for 7 hours.

And, "taxes" just don't cut it.
Who's going to pay those taxes?
You do realize that if you taxed the top 10 percent of earners in the country at 100 percent and made them destitute, you still wouldn't have enough money to pay for Obama's government, don't you?
So, that question still remains unanswered.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Who will have to pay?
