Weren't you ever disciplined by your parents?

Why is it liberals equate discipline with a beating? Were you beaten as a child? I sure hope not. If so, at least that would explain your own personal view.

If not, were you ever disciplined? And did you never do anything wrong as a child? Because the perfect child doesn't exist.

Most children whose parents cared enough to teach them right from wrong when they were growing up love them even more after becoming adults themselves.

True for me anyway.

What Benghazi Tells Us About the GOP Brand
....The GOP is now in the position that Carter’s party was in, and in contrast Obama has acquired something like Reagan’s “teflon” coating—as the Benghazi episode illustrates. Benghazi was a national humiliation, caught the administration in a tangle of its own words, and should have raised serious questions about why we were in Libya in the first place. Americans, including an ambassador, had died, and Obama’s signature foreign-policy intervention was the strategic backdrop. It happened shortly before an election, yet Obama took no damage from it. Instead, Republicans who insisted that this was a great scandal came off looking like unpatriotic kooks to non-Republicans. Why?
It’s a simple matter of trust: the nation now trusts Democrats more than Republicans on foreign policy, and Iraq is largely the reason for that. This gives Obama and his party a margin for error: his Benghazi screw-up is seen as an aberration, much as Reagan’s Lebanon humiliation was. It doesn’t fit the brand’s reputation for leadership, and that reputation is stronger in the public mind than the impression made by an incident even as gruesome as the Beirut barracks attack or the murder of an ambassador.
A more logical explanation is a biased media that distorts the truth to serve Obama, including a fat pig named Candy Crowley in the debate.

Obama campaign ads are now claiming that his anti-gun legislation is actually pro-gun.

The world is upside down.

The mass murderers at Columbine and Newtown were probably never disciplined by their parents.

Like the parents who take their urchins on an airline flight and let them kick the back of the seat in front of them for hours without saying a word, then get offended if you complain.

Having no margin for error on foreign policy is one of the things that consistently hampers Republican criticisms of administration actions. The public doesn’t trust them or their judgment on these issues as they once did, and that means that hawkish Republican arguments face a much more skeptical, if not hostile, audience than they did at the start of the century. The trouble for a lot of Republican hawks is that they don’t realize that they now have no margin for error. Many of them continue to promote very similar policies without making much effort to justify them to a skeptical public, and they seem to think that they can rely on the party’s traditional advantage in this area to make up for the fact that their arguments aren’t very good. For the better part of forty years, Republicans were accustomed to attacking the other party as “weak” while positioning themselves as the more hawkish party, and in the last two presidential elections they have found that the old lines no longer work. Hawkish posturing may have once inspired confidence, because there was not much fear that a Republican president would start, much less lose, a major war. Now the hawkish posturing is taken as a virtual guarantee that the next Republican president probably will start more wars. Regardless, the risk that the next Republican president might plunge the U.S. into another war is not one worth taking.

Republican hawks likewise didn’t have much credibility to use the aftermath of the Libyan war against Obama, since almost all of them were supporters of intervention in Libya and had been arguing for an even larger, more aggressive American role there. If some of the hawks had had their way on Libya, there would have been U.S. soldiers coming under attack there on a regular basis. Seeking to out-hawk Obama doesn’t just make for substantively bad policy, but it demonstrates impressive political incompetence on a large scale.

like a 'biased' media distorted this?....

The Hezbollah bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983 cost more American lives, by far, than the hostage crisis and botched rescue. Reagan pulled out of Lebanon—and invaded Grenada, which proved to be a quick, if not quite clean, intervention. It could have been seen cynically as an attempt to distract from the Lebanon debacle; that was certainly how the left saw it. But Reagan didn’t suffer much in the following year’s election for the deaths of over 200 Americans in Beirut or from any suspicion that Grenada was a smokescreen. Why did Reagan emerge unscathed from events that would have destroyed a Democratic administration like Carter’s?

it's not the media. it's 8 years of incompetence from the Bush admin. and until you folks figure that out you're going to have an endless steam of Democrats in the WH that will keep FOX in the money for years to come.

You loved your parents and respected their wishes as you chose. But if you chose to go against their wishes, you wouldn't have respected them enough to have a healthy fear of the consequences of having displeased them?
Discipline is done out of love if there is an abundance of love to begin with.
Not saying your parents provided no boundaries and were permissive parents, but parents who don't correct and discipline their children actually don't love them as much as you think they do.
Somehow such simple concepts fly over your heads like birds flying south for the winter! I said as I chose because I am an individual, meaning I do what I want regardless of the consequences. My parents were great parents, but a beating, grounding, or confiscating my toys couldn't make me do or not do anything. Infact often makes things worse. You all are confusing disappointment & respect with fear. All 3 have their own meanings & like I said,"there is no room for fear in a heart full of love!

This admin has NOT been an admin like Carters.

For starters- Carter actually EARNED his Nobel prize-AFTER doing the work-NOT just for existing.

(and is like comparing Bierut to Benghazi-the only comparable thing being FOREIGN POLICY FAILURE due to LACK of intelligence.)
