Like I've said before, Obama is the luckiest man alive.
Romney handed him the election on a silver platter when he refused to bring up Benghazi in the foreign policy debate.
Obama would have certainly looked like a deer caught in headlights that soon after the attack and an attempted coverup. There would have been a 30 minute response with so many, "uhs" and "ands" we would've lost count and no one would have had any idea what he was talking about by the time he finished.
However, on second thought, Obama would have no doubt just said, it's still under investigaton...even though everyone knew the whole story by then. You would've bought it though.
Aunt Bettie Lou that’s what happens when you have Rhino Republicans running your campaign but you’re Right playing it Safe was Costly!!

No, he just let two golden opportunities slip through his hands - not saying a word about Benghazi during the debate on foreign policy - playing it safe was his undoing in this case - and allowing a biased liberal mediator to become part of the townhall debate without an immediate reaction - total shock was his undoing in that case.
If only he had put Obama's reaction to Benghazi in the spotlight, it would have been all over but the cryin' right then and there.

There was a large CIA base just a mile or so from the Benghazi embassy compound__until the purpose of that CIA base is known this talk of Benghazi is wasted ted time.

But feel free to spew the FOX line and continue to look stupid.

Romney did bring it up, Carol.

Once again you demonstrate either your lack of knowledge or your lack of honesty.

Benghazi was/is a losing issue. Most Americans recognize that Libya was a dangerous place & like most dangerous places open to attack with little defense.

This witch hunt with this fake outrage on when Obama called it a terrorist attack is beyond stupid & pathetic.

<quoted text> If your logic holds any height, that babies in the womb are living breathing beings, & deserves rights as such.When exactly does the fathers rights to his child kick in? I ask because, take away abortion, & women in a tight jam will perform self abortions. By law that's not illegal because " it's her body." Now, should the mother be held responsible for murder if she performs her own abortion against the fathers will? After all, to give the baby rights, you have to give the father rights! I may agree with you as far as my individual stance on abortion, but honestly, who are you to tell another hymen being what she can, or can not do with her body?
I agree, I'm all for "hymen rights" as well.

So ambassadors in France get armed security and ambassadors in enemy territory are left abandoned after repeatedly requesting assistance long before the attack?
In the aftermath, investigators identified more than a dozen violent events in Benghazi during the previous six months.
The chairman of the subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations sent a letter to Secretary of State Clinton which listed a number of these events including car jackings, kidnappings, assassination attempts and gun battles. The letter stated, "Put together, these events indicated a clear pattern of security threats that could only be reasonably interpreted to justify increased security for U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi."
According to "Benghazi: The Definitive Report," the Regional Security Office in Tripoli "compiled a list of 234 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012, 50 of which took place in Benghazi.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see this was a major political coverup on the part of this administration.
Coverups for political gain usually don't end up well for those responsible - even at the highest levels.

No Marines for Libyan Ambassador, Full Security Detail for Valerie Jarrett Vacation

Ambassador Chris Stevens did not have a Marine detail in Benghazi, Libya. But White House Senior Advisor and Obama confidante Valerie Jarrett has a full Secret Service detail on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, according to Democratic pollster Pat Caddell.

That’s the pathetic foreign policy of the Obama administration, says Caddell today in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.“Jarrett seems to have a 24 hour, around the clock detail, with five or six agents full time,” Caddell explains.

“The media has been completely uninterested. We don’t provide security for our ambassador in Libya, but she needs a full Secret Service security detail. And nobody thinks there’s anything wrong with this. And nobody in the press will ask. What kind of slavish stoogery are they perpetrating here?

“This country has reached the point of absurdity. There are people dead because we don’t have security details for them. But she’s privileged to have a full Secret Service detail on vacation?”

Dave you did say your business is seasonal, so I guess’ Davey Lawn Service’ is gearing up for another season!!
If only you knew what redistribution of wealth actually means.

My business has some aspects that are seasonal & other aspects that are all year around.

If I had a lawn service business, what would be wrong with that?
