Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

Yes, the 'funding cuts' had as much to do with the 'events surrounding the attack' as al-Qaeda did. Wasn't that Hillary Clinton's whole point, none of us knows for sure who or what was responsible for the attacks , but we are all wasting time quibbling over who's fault it was when we ought to be pursuing leads on finding the attackers,successfully convicting them and putting them in prison for a long time (just as Bill Clinton did after the 1993 truck bombing of the basement garages at the WTC .)She also went on to say that we ought to be working together to make sure embassy attacks like those in Benghazi never happen again . Fighting with each other over who's at fault was exactly Osama bin Laden's plan--get the Americans to fight among themselves and half the battle is won.

The majority of Americans supported the Iraq War as did the majority in Congress including your beloved weasels.
March 2003, a Gallup poll made on behalf of CNN and USA Today concluded that 79% of Americans thought the Iraq War was justified with or without conclusive evidence of illegal weapons. 19% thought weapons were needed to justify the war.
Look up the findings and assessments of UNSCOM before the Iraq War became inevitable.

The obvious - which continues to elude you - is the American people were told a completely different story for weeks, no one provided any answers to any of the questions as to why it happened or why the administration continued to lie to cover up the truth.
Does any of this register?
I get it. You're a foxbot crapping your cage while you continue to chase previously debunked falsehoods!

President Obama spoke from the White House Rose Garden about Benghazi, saying, "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America." Obama referred to Benghazi twice more as an "act of terror" on September 13, two days after the attack.

And her beloved FOX national just dumped the most important congressional hearings since the McCarthy hearings of 1954 to provide "exclusive" coverage of the Arizona sex-murder trial.

Hillary will never be President because Obama will never give up the power.

The next Democrat nominee will be an Obama surrogate, kind of like Argentina.

"If Obama and his administration had said from day one it was a terrorist attack and that they were doing everything possible to find out how it happened and those responsible,..." Well, yes, of course! That's exactly what President Obama DID say in the White House Rose Garden to the American press one day after the Benghazi attacks. Sept. 12: Obama delivers a morning speech in the Rose Garden to address the deaths of U.S. diplomats in Libya. He said,“No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” He also makes reference to the anti-Muslim video when he says:“Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” He uses the term “act of terror” later that night when talking about the attack at a campaign event in Las Vegas.

Sept. 12: After his Rose Garden speech, Obama tapes an interview for “60 Minutes.” Obama says he didn’t use the word “terrorism” in his Rose Garden speech because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.” Steve Kroft, the show’s host, wonders how the attack could be described as a “mob action” since the attackers were “very heavily armed.” Obama says “we’re still investigating,” but he suspects “folks involved in this ... were looking to target Americans from the start.” Check this out: http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/benghazi-tim... So,ONCE Again for the intellectually-challenged , Obama did say it was in his estimation an 'act of Terror', but because the facts were still sketchy and questionable , there was also a vigorous investigation going on with U S, and Libyan government officials fully cooperating together on it.

She comes across as an embittered, opinionated loud mouth who thinks her say is the only say and the final say. Got news for her, the world doesn't spin on her opinion. She comes across as a bored house frau who spends way too much time echoing the folks she watches on her television set which is always set to Fox. It ain't her way or the highway. She needs to take her fox goggles off once in awhile. Nobody likes a know it all and she's a know it all if there ever was one. Bet she's been posting Fox opinions non stop since 2008!

The highest US gasoline prices in history occurred during June 2008 when unleaded regular gasoline reached a national average price of $4.26 pg. Then during the next six months gasoline prices plummeted as the result of the George W Bush inspired global financial collapse.
