Please explain this double standard of yours.
Of Course, you do know that you're ignoring the fact that Romney did not 'use' his own money , but received salary, and bonus stock options for investing other peoples money , shareholders money, employees money , tax payers money,( but not his since he never even paid the 20% that he owed.) The only year Romney paid more in taxes then he owed was 2011(and Romney is allowed to amend those tax returns to recoup all of it in future. And if he had been elected President then Paul Ryan's tax reform plan would have enabled Romney to pay a mere 0.82%. So, Romney was making a calculated gamble, what corporate sharks do ,then lament that they 'win some;lose some .

<quoted text>Cutting embassy funding for unnecessary expenses in embassies who are not located in the most dangerous parts of the world has nothing to do with the Obama administration doing nothing for an ambassador and Americans in grave danger and trying to pretend like it wasn't a terrorist attack for days and days and days and, in Obama's case, weeks and weeks and weeks afterwards.

This coverup and "dereliction of duty" had nothing to do with cutting unnecessary expenses in embassies where there was no imminent danger and resucing the ones who were.

It costs nothing to tell the friggin' truth why they were not.
So that's a yes.
Republicans defunded embassy security.
Thanks.

So with Sanford's win I guess we'll never hear another word from a rightwinger about Clinton.

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

Hypocrites.

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.

And I don't want some nobody in the Obama administration "falling on the sword" in an attempt to appease the clueless and continue the coverup of protecting him and the next "heir" to the throne, Hillary Clinton.

That would be the most aggregious indignaton in this ongoing fiasco of party loyalty covering up the truth as to why there are four dead Americans.

Mr Peabody, Sherman, and Mr Wizard will never understand that. They complain about insurance companies but when shown how to get around them except for catastrophic illness/injury they throw a hissy fit. Friggin' libtards are SO stupid!!!

As I've posted very many times Carol__the bulk of those "green" companies were founded well before Obama took office and took advantage of various state local and federal tax incentives, grants and loan guarantees as far back as the Clinton administration.

He raised funds from private organizations and donors all by his lonesome at the beginning and threw in some of his own.

Look! A shiny bling-bling!

The liberals are in full-scale mode spin cycle in the hearings that are about to start.
The panel is right now giving opening statements and already a few liberals are exhibiting symptoms of having taken spin steroids this morning.
The beauty of liberal indignation is that when they are obviously on the defensive, they just dig themselves deeper and deeper.
FOX talking points scare no one.

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??

Oh yes, what a waste of money. Darryl Issa and his hearings. Why don't they go to work and do the peoples work instead of witchhunting? Republicans are the worst.
Maybe waste another $30 million like the Starr Report?

It does seem a bit self-serving and hypocritical of Republicans to play politics now (almost 2 years before the next election) rather then get to work with the President on solving the nation's problems. Wasn't it Republicans who wanted President Obama to stay more in Washington and work with them on getting things done then out campaigning for Democratic causes?
