<quoted text>The lame stream media will sooner or later along with other democrats, eventually throw obama under the bus to save Hillary from Benghazi and get her elected.
Or they may throw Hillary under the bus to save Obama's ass.

Never forget who is in control and all the other victim's already under the Obama bus.

Obama's military!

The Air Force stripped an unprecedented 17 officers of their authority to control — and, if necessary, launch — nuclear missiles after a string of unpublicized failings, including a remarkably dim review of their unit's launch skills. The group's deputy commander said it is suffering "rot" within its ranks

enate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Bob Corker (R-TN) said Wednesday that he's "fairly satisfied" with the Obama administration's account of events that led to the deaths of American diplomats in Benghazi last year.

"We need to know were these people culpable or not. If they were, why are they still on the payroll? Other than that, I've been able to read all the cables. I've seen the films," Corker told MSNBC. "I feel like I know what happened in Benghazi. I'm fairly satisfied."

He cautioned House Republicans to be "respectful" if they probe the issue further.

"Look, if the House wants to have hearings," he said, "I hope they're done in a respectful way and hopefully it will shed some light on what happened."

respectful? like not using FOX talking points to ask questions?

There's been another child-on-child shooting in America.
A 7-year-old boy was shot in his northeast Houston home on Tuesday -- and the gunman was apparently his younger brother, The Houston Chronicle reported..
According to , the boys were in the bathtub around 9 p.m. when their mother stepped away for a moment. Police say the 5-year-old brother then got out of the tub, found a .22 rifle and shot his older brother.
The injured child was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Officials say the bullet went straight through the boy's back, reported. He is expected to recover.

SEOUL, South Korea -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is tapping his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to ask for the release of a Korean-American man sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in the North.
"I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him `Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose," Rodman said on Twitter. He later called the tweet a direct response to a Seattle Times editorial that dared him to ask Kim for the release if the two are really buddies.
Kermit Gosnell was making house calls in Cleveland for the Castro Brothers. Oh....and his car had a Brother Obama bumper-sticker on it.

<quoted text>The Liberal News Media are the robots of the Socialist; mediamatters and are the little monkeys who do the dance for the organ grinders who collect taxpayers’ money. They don’t get paid for thinking; they get paid for promoting copy and pasting Socialism. If you ask sonicfiller or any of them a few questions, you’ll get a canned response or copy-n-paste from all of them. For example:
Why are we in a recession? They’ll blame it on Bush, Republicans, the tea parties and dumb Americans.
What happened to our stimulus money? That’s a secret that we’re not allowed to talk about.
Why are businesses refusing to hire, grow or stimulate economy? They’ll deny that Obamacare, outlandish business regulations and the threat of taxes are the real problems.
What has Obama accomplished in the past 21/2 years? They’ll say, he’s created millions of jobs, brought us out of a recession caused by Republicans and that our economy is pretty darned good.
Why do we have to raise our debt ceiling again? They’ll definitely not answer that question, but they’ll toss it to Obama, Bernanke and Geithner who will say because, because, because!
Why doesn’t Obama and Democrats have a balanced budget plan? They’ll ignore that question and immediately blame Republicans, tea parties and Americans for our budget problems.
So folks, if it’s garbage you enjoy reading then tune into the Dumpsters @ MSNBC, CNN, Media Matters, NYT and CBS or better yet do your homework and find out the truth.

Johnny the Jihadi, or John McCain’s Peculiar Obsession

Is there anyone besides Andrew Sullivan who notes how peculiar it is that John McCain wants to aid al-Qaeda operatives in Syria?

....The rebels in Syria, who have come from all over the Sunni Muslim world, seem quite similar in ideology to the guy who inspired the Tsarnaev brothers to blow up women and children at the Boston Marathon. Why should we want to strengthen this faction of Islam by bringing them to power in Damascus?

Ted Cruz and the Politics of Imprudence

.... this episode touches on a deeper matter, which is the habit some on the right have of confusing principled convictions with self-destructive tactics. Rather than selectively picking the ground on which to fight, they seem to relish brinksmanship and conflict, even if they lose those confrontations legislatively and in the court of public opinion. But what makes this whole thing slightly bizarre is that in the process the self-styled purists accuse those who oppose them as being (in Cruz’s elegant description)“a bunch of squishes.”

It takes a person of unusual ideological brittleness to mock those who are intelligent enough not to join a lawmaker and his colleagues in their version of Pickett’s Charge.

Pat Smith's son Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, was one of four Americans killed during the attack.
JAKE TAPPER: One woman still looking for answers is Pat Smith. Her son, State Department Information Officer Sean Smith was one of the four Americans killed. Pat, thanks so much for being here. I know this is not an easy time. How are you holding up?
PAT SMITH, MOTHER OF SEAN SMITH, KILLED IN BENGHAZI: Terrible. I cry every night. I don't sleep at night. I need answers.
TAPPER: What do you want answers to? What do you not know?
SMITH: Why was there no security for him? When they were supposed to have security and the security that they did have was called back. It just -- things do not add up and I'm just told lies.
TAPPER: Last week, you heard this in the piece the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that Benghazi happened a long time ago.
SMITH: Yes, it did.
TAPPER: Eight months ago.
TAPPER: What is your reaction to that?
SMITH: Why don't they have answers by now? They've had plenty of time to come up with something other than the things they have not told me.
TAPPER: Are you concerned at all that the hearings and Benghazi that has become a political issue, the Republicans have turned it into a political issue. The Democrats have turned it into a political issue as opposed to being a scandal and a tragedy apart from politics?
SMITH: Of course, it's political. That's the way it's been. That's how they're treating it. That's what they're doing with it. They're making it into something that -- why don't they just do their job? They didn't do their job and now they're hiding behind the word political and going from there.
TAPPER: You have expressed disappointment in the past because President Obama, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, all of them came to you, talked to you.
TAPPER: And then you haven't heard from them. Have you heard from anybody in the Obama administration? Have you gotten any outreach or any answers at all?
SMITH: I got one telephone call from a clerk that was a couple days after it happened. He was reading to me from the time line, which I already had. And that was it. And since then, all they have told me is that I am not part of the immediate family so they don't want to tell me anything.
TAPPER: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified about the Benghazi tragedy shortly before she left office. I want to play a little bit of what she said.
HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.
TAPPER: What was your reaction to that?
SMITH: Well, that's what I want to know. Why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn't she do something about it? I blame her.
TAPPER: You blame Secretary of State Clinton.
SMITH: Because that's her department. She is supposed to be on top of it. Yet she claims she knows nothing. It wasn't told to her. Well, who is running the place?
Who in the fuhell was DS agent Scott Strickland??? BTW DS=diplomatic security.

Ms Smith ought to be asking why her son and the ambassador were in the Benghazi consulate on that particular evening?
