For once Bush got it right.
When Bush bailed out GM, he did a good thing.
Imagine the costs to America, both economically and as a society, if the industry we invented failed in America??
No way Bush was going to leave that as a legacy.
Rmoney was dead wrong on it, and it cost him the election.
Obama agreed with Bush and continued the auto bailout.
It has been a success by any measure.
Ypu hated it from the start, claimed GM would go bankrupt for years, and now you've been proven to be an idiot.
Nothing new there. You've done it on this thread for almost 5 years.
If you didn't post so much, you wouldn't appear so stupid.

Across the board, serial killers are predominantly conservative in their political leanings.

Quizzing other killers showed the same thing, that the vast majority vote Republican,” said lead pollster David Quick.“We gain no analysis from this, it garners us no insight into the workings of the minds of conservative politicians or serial killers, but it is an overwhelming majority. Because serial killers come from diverse backgrounds and possess vastly different IQ’s they appear to have nothing in common save their conservative ideals and their desire to butcher people. It’s compelling data to be sure.”
"A new poll of living and deceased serial killers has shown that upwards of 80 per cent lean towards conservative ideals "

How the hell do you poll dead people? The same way they are allowed to vote?

I see nothing has changed here....
Bullshit. We don't need a platoon of Marines guarding the embassy in Helsinki. There were very ample funds available to increase security for Stevens. It seems decreasing Stevens' security was deliberate.
... hmmmmm....
Let's review:
Al Qaeda plans their attack in spring, 2012.
A Force Recon Marine unit is moved to Sigonella, Italy, for the specific purpose of responding specifically to a terrorist attack specifically on our embassy specifically in Italy.
Stevens' security is deliberately reduced in summer 2012.
Al Qaeda uses explosives and RPGs to attack the facility Stevens was killed in. However, when Al Qaeda comes to the room where Stevens is holed up, they don't use their explosives of RPGs to get to Stevens. They try to smoke him out of the room.
THE AL QAEDA PLAN WAS TO KIDNAP STEVENS, NOT KILL HIM.
The real-time video from a drone and from ground-based cameras was watched in several locations around the world. Assume that the video was being watched in the White House, also.
After the failed attempt to kidnap Stevens, Obama begins lying for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack.
Connect the dots....
If the White House is conspiring with Al Qaeda, it won't be the first time a Democrat in the White House was found conspiring with the enemy of the United States. I reference Alger Hiss.
The lie Obama spewed for two weeks was most likely part of Al Qaeda's plan, and Obama was just doing his assigned function.
Hillary was assigned the function of reducinig Stevens' security to make it easier for Al Qaeda to kidnap Stevens.
Now, aiding and abetting the enemy during the battle:
Somebody in the White House ordered the AC-130 to hold fire while the targetted Al Qaeda mortars killed two Americans, while the White House watched.
Somebody in the White House ordered the Force Recon Marine unit in Sigonella to stand down.
Who gave those orders?
It obviously wasn't Obama. He was probably as involved in this as much as he was involved in the mission that killed bin Laden.... didn't have clue it was even happening.
Vallerie Jarrett.
The logical conclusion is the White House is conspiring with Al Qaeda.
logical? how does wishful thinking figure into logical?

Democratic Congressman Refuses To Let Republicans Ignore GOP Security Budget Cuts In New Benghazi Hearing

In a heated exchange on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Lynch pointed out that Republicans voted against additional funding for embassy security when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requested it:

LYNCH: When Secretary Clinton and the State Department asked for additional funding for embassy security,[Republicans] all voted no. They all voted no.

WALLACE: We’re getting a little bit off track now. I understand there’s an issue about security. It’s a little bit off the track. I want to stay on course here –

LYNCH: No, this is the point. They’re complaining about a lack of security at the embassies after they voted against funding for security at the embassies. Is that not related?

Benghazi was a tragedy, a terrible tragedy and because of it a light should be shone on what more can be done to protect those who serve America overseas. What our country does not deserve is a political show trial designed to vilify Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. What we don't need is a crass partisan effort to influence the 2016 presidential campaign.
Unlike the 1980s Iran-Contra scandal, there are no questions of illegal acts, no secret funds, no shredding of documents and no efforts to directly circumvent a law passed by Congress. People may forget that 14 administration officials were indicted and 11 convicted as a result of the arms-for-hostages scandal.
Instead, what we have after eight months of investigation, 11 congressional hearings before five committees, 20 staff briefings and 25,000 pages of documents is exactly what we started with: a tragic situation with lessons to be learned, but not a grand conspiracy. It is sad that Rep. Darrell Issa has decided not to conduct a series of hearings to help solve the problems that out diplomats face every day but rather to engage in a partisan, political witch hunt for a conspiracy and cover-up that doesn't exist.

What else are they lying about and would be willing to lie about?

Why hasn't this administration answered any questions?

I'll tell you why. Because they suppressed the truth from the very beginning to protect their party and their power in 2016 at the expense of those who died, their families and the entire nation - and now they have no choice but to cover it up and hope their loyal lapdog propagandists will make it all go away so people like you can still be led blindly and obediently by the nose at their command.

Republicans lead a witch hunt on Benghazi
The only coherent purpose I can discern in all of this is to sully Clinton’s record as secretary of state in case she runs for president in 2016.[...]
Did Clinton’s State Department fail to provide adequate security for the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi? In retrospect, obviously so. But the three diplomats who testified at the hearing gave no evidence that this failure sprang from anything other than the need to use limited resources as efficiently as possible.
House Republicans who voted to cut funding for State Department security should understand that their philosophy — small government is always better — has consequences. Bureaucrats have to make judgment calls. Sometimes they will be wrong.

Security at an embassy in a war zone is a logical first cut, rather than security in Paris or London. Or Iceland.

Scarborough: Benghazi Would Get More Public Scrutiny If Conservatives Hadn’t ‘Overplayed Their Hand’
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/s...
you act like a nutjob and no one cares if you're right or wrong. no one wants to be seen supporting a nutjob cause unless they're a nutjob. are you a nutjob? well sure you are. and because you're a nutjob i could give a shyte less about whatever mythical FOXbot ideas you have about Benghazi. so please, can you just shutup about it? no one is listening to FOX silliness. just ask FOX. they've been complaining since minute one that no one else will lower their journalistic standards so they can 'cover' the story like FOX does. i mean gee whiz, what's the point of having so many old white folks watching your network every night if you can't get away with lying to them on a regular basis? the rest of us just need to dumb down and see what living in your head would be like for a few days. i'm sure Big Pharma could use the infusion of new customers never mind the ratings at FOX finally matching the nightly network news, so come on everybody and get stupid like a FOXbot! though i may need some help. carol?
Fox is keeping investigative journalism alive.

54 attacks on American sites abroad
13 Americans killed
3 hearings
0 outrage from the right
Under Obama:
1 attack
4 killed
9 hearings

....did not provide any links and seem to think there have been no attacks on Americans or American sites since 2009 when their Lord and Savior Barack Hussein Obama was sworn into office to fundamentally transform this nation of which they are doing a whiz bang job of helping him succeed.
