Did you watch the foreign policy debate? The last one? The opportunity to put Obama directly in the spotlight on Benghazi - why he continued to call it a sponataneous mob attack and blaming a video two weeks afterwards when everyone knew by then it was a terror attack the night it happened - would have cinched the election for Romney.
That's he opporutnity that slipped through his fingers.
My God Carol, did you watch it?? Evidently not if you think Benghazi did not come up.

I grouped a segment of Christians that are overly aggressive in pushing their religion.
This is not bigotry.
This is " I don't like people that try to shove their religious beliefs down my throat.
I don't like Muslims who use violence in the name of their religion.
I don't like "Tea Party" Republicans.
I don't like people that abuse animals.
Note that I describe actions, not attributes such as race, creed, sexual orientation, religion, skin color, etc.
ACTIONS
During the 2012 Presidential race, Romney's religion was a factor. Some members of the religious right stayed home. My saying that does not make me a bigot.
Now, I can understand your desire to pin that label on me because I have pointed out your use of racial slurs over & over. So why does a racist POS like you care? To you, being a racist f*ck is fine but OMG don't talk about a certain group of Christians? Really?
An exploding population of wild horses, idiots and ghetto ignorance... And the government still wants to control your numbers RealDave.

The eyes are useless when your mind is blind with bigotry and hate RealDave.... Yet RealDave is good for making up excuses and is seldom good for anything else..

The Magic Negro stuck his foot in his mouth when he bellowed some cheap threat about Syria crossing a red line and what the Boy Messiah would do if Assad crossed it.
Well, the line was crossed and the Big Mouth began stuttering.
I strongly suspect that he cut a deal with Israel to go into Syria as his proxy and says like Wimpy would: "I will gladly pay you on Monday for a hamburger on Friday"...
The Israeli's are making political hay with the Jerk-In-Chief because he has no balls to back up his earlier threats. Those Israelis have gonads.
Obama's got his tail so far beneath his crotch that he looks like a comedic Hitler right now.
Nw evidence that the rebels used chemical weapons. Now what.

Do you dimbasses ever think that knowing the US would get more involved if Syria used chemical weapons that sone rebels might think that it was a way to get more US aid?

Of course not because you are dumber than sh*t.

Yep, let's nuke them all before we know for sure.

War Criminals in the Syrian Opposition?

....just two weeks ago, the White House informed Congress:

“Our intelligence community does assess, with varying degrees of confidence, that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically, the chemical agent sarin.”

A clamor then arose demanding Obama make good on his threat that the Syrian regime’s use of poison gas would cross a “red line” and be a “game changer,” calling forth “enormous consequences.”

If the Syrian military did not use sarin, but the rebels did, who in the U.S. intelligence community blew this one? From whom did U.S. agencies get their evidence that sarin had been used by Damascus? Were we almost suckered by someone’s latest lies about weapons of mass destruction into fighting yet another unnecessary war?

When allegations of the Syrian government’s use of sarin arose, many in Congress, especially in the Republican Party, denounced Obama for fecklessness in backing off of his “red line” threat.

It now appears that Obama may have saved us from a strategic disaster by not plunging ahead with military action. And the question should be put to the war hawks:

If Assad’s use of sarin should call forth U.S. air strikes, ought not the use of sarin by the rebels, if confirmed, cause this country to wash its hands of those war criminals?

The only reference I could find to the CIA base which wasn't even relevant was protecting the names of those who might be in covert operations.
So what does that have to do with Hillary telling one of the victims's families at the funeral they would find who was responsible for "that video"?
"That video" is just the top layer of many layers of the entire coverup controversy. The CIA base had nothing to do with lying to the American public and the timing of an upcoming election.
So, there was this video.

This video caused rioting in numerous Middle Eastern cities & in other Muslim communities.

But Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo. Not in Benghazi.

Nope.

It was just impossible!!!!!!!!!!

Couldn't have been a factor at all so lets just ignore it and not consider it.

In the days following the Benghazi attack, that video was cited as a possible cause. There was not enough information to eliminate it.

So off goes Carol, Romney, McCain having a GD fit because this possibility was stated. OMG OMG the word "terror" wasn't used enough or fast enough. OMG OMG OMG.

You people are dumber than sh*t. WTF difference would it make if Obama ran screaming though the streets screaming "Terrorist Attack" or if we proceed with caution to actually find out for sure?

Republicans are using the death of a US ambassador for political gain. First to attack Obama & Now to try to eliminate their number one opponent in 2016, Hilary Clinton

And you are dumb enough to believe it.

Lets take this State Department worker who was in Tripoli use his extensive military experience to critique the military response. Oh wait, Hicks has not the military experience & knowledge.

Benghazi will end up being just anther example of Republicans putting their party ahead of country.

The whole reason the system is a 2 party system & 2/3 majority is, which ever party wins the presidency & can manage to win either the house, or the , has the right to expose America to their ideology. After all, that's what they were hired to do. No matter the party affiliation, govt officials only reach across the isle, to assure the passage of their policies. Stop trying to make the republicans out to be Angels, & the democrats Demons. Obama was elected & reelected, so America must want to see his vision of America. Republicans have to wait their turns!
The only goal of the republicans is to obstruct. All one needs to do is look at Speaker Boehners record and approval rating, and, that of congress.
Then, look at the record of Speaker Pelosi and the approval rating of congress when she was Speaker.
I doubt the republicans will win the presidency for many years to come; but, their goal is to maintain control of congress and obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This is incredible that these paid officials are getting paid to do nothing. They'd have been fired in a day in the private sector. There are over 80 federal judgeships not filled, why? Take a guess.

Krauthammer Whitewashes Bush's History To Bash Obama Over Embassy Attack

On Fox News, Charles Krauthammer suggested that "under other presidents, particularly Bush," there was "no storming of the U.S. embassy in Cairo." In fact, there were seven attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates during the Bush years, and numerous other such attacks have happened under recent presidents.

That's Obama's war on terror. Silencing terrorists and dropping drones.
LOL, you've got how many prisoners in Gitmo? What did that solve?
They haven't even been charged, they have to be let go.
Are you saying that you and the rightwingers are opposed to the use of drones?
Would Mitt Romney have dismantled the drone program? for what? more invasions of ground troops resulting in more American casualties?
President Obama is the President; he's not a dictator. The surviving brother is a U.S. citizen, committed a crime in the U.S. and has been arrested and will never be out of prison.
Are you saying that you would like the President to be a supreme dictator and decide who is subjected to the justice system?

If diplomatic attacks are a sign of weakness, Bush was the weakest of all

we all know that FOX started the lies being told about Benghazi and how no one has paid attention to the lies because they came from FOX, so attacks of those who expose those lies is to be expected.
