Let me just say this. If this president walks after the lies and incompetence of Benghazi because winning an election was more important than the lives of an ambassador and three Americans...after creating an atmosphere of enemies among fellow Americans leading to a KGB-type abuse of power by the IRS...and feigning total innocence and implausible lack of knowledge involving the overreaching and unprecedented AP seizure...I'm out.

If this president is not implicated in having culpability in one or all three of these scandals, two of which are impeachable, we are a country where accountability only matters if you're not a democrat. If that is the case, they can have it. I won't care anymore.

If, however, the media and Congress remember we are still governed by the Constitution and abuse of power will not be tolerated by any American no matter which side we're on...we might possibly become united again under the banner of we, the people.

I pray for the latter so the haters and defenders of haters won't matter anymore.

The buck stops with Barack Hussein Obama.

No, unfortunately it never does.

Obama is a master at blaming others for his failures.

Personally I do not care if a marine holds an umbrella for president nobama, he needs all the help he can get. There is little nobama can do without help, no reason to expect him to be able to use an umbrella. Thing is the marine should not have. The marines are not nobama's personal servants. Pictures have been shown of Army personnel holding an umbrella for a president, but not a marine. Several posters have posted that male marines are not permitted ho hold an umbrella when on duty.
You should check it out I did not post about military personnel but marines in particular.

the MSM stabs carol in the back....
Jonathan Karl: I 'Regret' Inaccuracies In Benghazi Reporting
ABC News' Jonathan Karl expressed "regret" over his reporting on Benghazi in a statement on Sunday.
Karl, the network's White House correspondent, recently provoked controversy after his exclusive report that quoted emails which allegedly showed the Obama administration made numerous edits to, and scrubbed information from the talking points on Benghazi. He said that ABC News had reviewed emails in question, but it was later revealed that the quotes were actually from a source claiming to have summarized the emails, and were misleading.
On Sunday's "Reliable Sources," Howard Kurtz relayed a statement from the ABC News correspondent: "Clearly, I regret the email was quoted incorrectly and I regret that it's become a distraction from the story, which still entirely stands. I should have been clearer about the attribution. We updated our story immediately."
Guest David Shuster came down hard on Karl on Sunday, telling Kurtz, "The story was wrong. The attribution was wrong. And he's still not characterizing the source as a Republican source, even though other news organizations are already doing that. So I just think the problems continue for ABC News in all of this."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/19/jona...
As you apparently did not read my response post to your wild claims, I am re-posting.

"" The differences between the two versions of the email have been overstated. At issue is the involvement of Ben Rhodes, a senior White House aide, in directing the various members of the inter-agency discussion to resolve their dispute.

Here’s the relevant part of the email as quoted by Karl:

We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.

Here’s the relevant sentence from the real email:

We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.

The email is important because in the preceding email back-and-forth, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland had urged that references to terrorism be removed because they could be a political liability to State. Whether Rhodes said Nuland’s objections should be accommodated explicitly or by implication is a difference, but it’s a pretty small one."

So they were talking about State and the FBI in a previous email and then the next email states

" We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

Who in the world does the Dems think she was referring too? A question I have asked since they started this non-event.

Move on Sonic you can't hype this tale any longer.

Umbrella of security? Tell that to the conservatives whose lives were ruined by the IRS due to the climate set by this president.
He has never been my president because he made it quite clear from the beginning he didn't want to be.
Obama didn't lie about anything you clueless twit! Why don't you come up with a single quote with citation that proves he lied about anything?
What conservatives have had their lives ruined by the IRS?

See. Moocher Eed claims he doesn't care but then goes into a diatribe of baloney bitching about it.

Yet he fails to answer the question.

Why is this a big deal with Obama but not the other Presidents?
