In case anyone out there is gullible enough to believe that Fox News' interest in Benghazi is about dead Americans, check out how Fox host Eric Bolling came up with an anti-Hillary Clinton ad, aired it as news on The Five and then offered it up to Republicans. In a thinly veiled attempt to pretend he wasn't being partisan, he threw Joe Biden's name into the mix.
Bolling began by announcing, "I made a political ad that Joe Biden, Chris Christie, Rand Paul or Marco Rubio are free to use in 2016." Then he played it. It's essentially a re-air of Hillary Clinton's "3am telephone call" ad from the 2008 campaign, with some additional anti-Clinton footage, topped off with the photos of the four Americans who died in Benghazi - you know, just to prove that's whom Bolling and Fox News really cares about.
Too bad he never cared about any of the thousands of Americans who died after George W. Bush led us into a war under false pretenses.

In fact, Obama's Stimulus created so many shovel-ready jobs that blue-collar, working men , construction workers, auto assembly-line workmen, the average joe 'hardhat' all voted for Obama/Biden in 2012 over Flip-flopper, tax-dodger vulture capitalist and liar Mitt Romney /Cryin'Ryan.--it's the Blue-Collar Vote that put Obama over the top!:-D

What's worse these ringers think if they repeat it enough times it may sound like its true. A bit like fairy-tales that get passed down through the ages. But conveniently ignore other facts like a Republican lead congress insisting on reduced funding for Embassy security abroad in the budget. So does that just fly by & never get a mention. GOP & their affiliate Fox tried in vain with Clinton because he liked cigars, they tried with Obama with Ayres & Wright & the Birther crap all of which fell flat on its face.
Then thought Palin would have mass appeal, only to find as a mass turn off. She destroyed Mcain's candidacy who on the whole was a decent guy. Then came Romney, a sock puppet for big business and they wonder why the Bible, Guns and the Flag don't work any more for them.
And, even after all that, they still continue to veer hard right.!!, right after the election Paul Ryan resubmitted his stupid personhood bill, Borhner proclaimed his most important issue is to eliminate abortion in thus country forever! Fools! They'll never win the Presidency again.

You are back!!!! Did you get out of rehab for a couple of hours? I have to admit I am glad you are back. In the next few hours you will have many posters pointing out what a loser you are. A Hollywood model for dinner tonite, is that on your agenda? Red Lobster? When are you going to update us as to your being an All American baseball player for Wake in the 50's. Did you not post you were captain of that team. When will you regale us with your exploits as a hero in Nam? Your claim to fame, you did not poison anyone in your tour as a cook.
Glad you are back.

Let's not jump to conclusions, but firemen have been known to set fires so that they could be heroes.

Either way, this would be a criminal act, unlike the Islamic terrorism of the Boston Muslims.

no big deal. liberals who didn't agree with the Bush war push suffered much the same.
"sonic"
Put up or shut up. One of the things you do well is post sources for your information, you cut and paste and lost the info that agrees with you but you do supply sources. Sort of. Now list a source where the IRS targeted liberals who did not agree with Bush on his policies. Try huff puff, media matters, if your work at it you will be able to twist some lies to support your BS.

No clue what "FoxNews 5" is, but the issue is the coverup in an effort to influence the election.

Plus the arms sales to Al Qaeda and the overall incompetence of Obama.

"Even there, it's not entirely clear why administration insistence on blaming an anti-Muslim video for provoking the attack, rather than consistently labeling the event as terrorism right away, is cause for grave concern, says Robert Entman, a professor of media and international affairs at George Washington University.

"We all know in the moment, when a crisis like this happens, there's a lot of uncertainty," he says. "It's really a perfect example of how the scandal machine is disconnected from the underlying seriousness of the harm."

IF it can be proved that Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice ' lied about anything at all. Even the FoxNews 5 admit That IF is a huge obstacle to overcome when there is no evidence . Most of the liberal and right-wing media have even begun to admit that this whole charge that Obama's premature linking of the despicable anti-Islam video to the Benghazi attacks was just a 'tempest in a teapot'; 'much ado about nothing; and further investigation by the Obama Administration cleared it up.

If NOT for obama's war in Libya, Benghazi would NOT be an issue... Yet Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice, like most liberals on this thread do what they do best LIE. Your obsession and addiction to FoxNews is amusing frontporchmonkey...

There was no uncertainty. The main certainty was the need to blame anything other than Islamic terrorism.
