<quoted text>If NOT for obama, Benghazi would NOT be an issue you idiot. It's obama's war in libya you fool...
The lame stream media will sooner or later like Cannibala along with other democrats, and throw obama under the bus to save Hillary from Benghazi and help her get elected you dumbass. Just imagine what the response from this WH would have been had there been 4 jihadists killed instead of 4 Americans??
Although , Republican hawks never mention the 'legality' of Obama's intervention in Libya to take down pro-terrorist tyrant Colonel Quadhafi anymore. Why wouldn't they if they really did like the 'shock &awe ' campaign in Libya and wanted the U S to use it again in Syria?

The Libyans requested help you moran. Nothing is going to happen to Hillary besides her poll numbers increasing daily.
I guess you prefer that Louis Farrahkan tells his Muslim followers at the Nation of Islam that Obama is the "Messiah." Once you understand that the Obama Administration is fully partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood you idiot, everything Barack and his cadre do makes perfect sense.. Just imagine what the response from this WH would have been had there been 4 jihadists killed instead of 4 Americans??

Resigning from Governor is a Republican thing - Sarah Palin & Mark Sanford.
Palin resigned to escape ethics violations. This was a special election in SC; look how that worked out for Scott Brown. Big deal.

They have no intention of getting anything done, they know they can't win the Presidency, but will concentrate on controlling congress; and the money.

The Senate is scheduled to vote Wednesday afternoon on an amendment offered by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) that may add fuel to a conspiracy theory about President Obama’s gun control efforts that even the National Rifle Association has said is based on fiction.

"Nobody gives a shyt about Benghazi"?

Did you really just say that?

Do you have even one explanation as to why this happened, Lily? Because the rest of us would sure love to know the information you apparently have privy to.

If a Republican president and his administration lied to you for weeks and weeks after a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and then pretended like it wasn't that important to provide you and your liberal pals any answers because it was more important to win an upcoming election...you know damn well you would give a shyte!!! A big frggin' shyte!!!

God help us survive your liberal warped mentality.

Sanford actually ran for office with people knowing about his infidelities and still Republicans voted him in.

What this all boils down to is a political circus. It's no surprise that Republicans are targeting the strongest Democratic candidate for 2016 as well as the sitting Democratic president: Their goals are transparently political. For them, this isn't about the substance of what happened in Benghazi. It's about winning an election three years from now, and it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone: It's just how Republicans roll.

Call back when Obama is willing to make real spending cuts in exchange for the tax increases he already received.

Right-Wing Media Push New Benghazi Myths Ahead Of Hearings

In fact, these myths are discredited by previous congressional reports and testimony, which show that the politicized nature of the hearings come from right-wing media and Congressional Republicans, that the military could not have rescued personnel from the second attack, that the administration was in constant communication at all levels during the attacks, and that the intelligence community believed there was a link to an anti-Islam video at the time of the attacks.
