Barack Obama, our next President

Wow! That little island of England can scramble fighter jets so quickly but Obama & Hillary wouldn't allow an single U.S. F-16 with drop tanks (sufficient range capability) to depart from Italy to help in Benghazi?
DOH! I forgot! Two weeks prior to Benghazi, Obama told us Bin Laden was dead and Al Queda was on its heels. I guess he was better off covering that mess up so close to the election.
Must have been a video that caused this problem too!
okay so your knowledge of fighter jet range, there and back is somewhat lacking, plus the time to arm and scramble those jets

but suppose in your scenario, they arrived on scene, what the heck were they suppose to do??

there were no troops on the ground to lite (lase) the targets. they would have been in a foreign country's airspace without permission and they would have been over a foreign city full of civilians

are you that naive that you think battle harden terrorist would have run at the sight of a couple of jets that they knew couldn't drop any ordnance??

if that were the case, we wouldn't be in Afghanistan right now

the area military commanders made the call, and the civilian administration went along with it, unlike the iraq fiasco, where the civilians ignored the advice of their military commanders...and look where that got us

maybe you should read the Pickering/Mullen investigation report

Those who believe in freedom hate Obama.
Those who want the government to steal from others to give to them love Obama. Unfortunately, there are too many of these people. Just like in Venezuela.
Just out of curiosity, what do you consider to be a straight down the middle, factual news source?
As for news, I don't consider anyone "...middle, factual news source...", especially when the facts play out differently.

This is why I find things like fart news' "dismay" at Romney's loss telling.

And why I find it comical when cons point to a guy like John Stewart and proclaim 'even he's making fun of Obama.'

You wouldn't see that from the likes of rushie, or the beck-ster. That would be blasphemous.

Boehner set the table for her and others to use their rights under the fifth amendment.
The press is having a good time with it though.
anything she testified to in front of congress can be used against her in a criminal case....so it doesn't matter the 5th amendment still applies

she was ordered to testify, she came in made a statement and shut up all with in her rights. I suggest you get a law degree before making such an idiotic statement
The Fifth Amendment does not allow you to testify and then refuse to answer on cross examination, nor does it allow you to choose which questions you desire to answer.

The idiot should have kept her mouth shut from the start, rather than making her foolish statement.

Her attorney was much more effective when representing Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Goes back even further to the Clinton/Berger days.

But you libs don't like reminiscing about the Clinton era who fumbled four of five opportunities to get bin Laden before 9/11 and Berger stealing documents from the National Archives that were missing information about 9/11.

Too incriminating. Can't have that.

Issa is not the President of the United States.
If, however, Obama, who IS the President, knew the IRS was targeting his enemies months before it became news and did not take action to stop it, that is an impeachable offense.
We only have to wait until the people creating a stonewall around him begins to crack.
There are too many people too close to him who did know.
If they kept him out of the loop, they should all be fired. If he does not fire them, it's just a matter of time before Obama, himself, is implicated in this coverup. The other two coverups will then matter again at that point.
Write the President with your wisdom :-)

You are close to the truth, but lost in your obsession with one news outlet.
Galt hates Obama for what he is, which is a leftist radical who wants to change America into a Socialist economy. So, what he does on any particular day or any particular issue is irrelevant, because his overall objective is completely unacceptable.
Actually, Obama is less radical than the right wing crazies.

He's shifted more and more to the right and each time he gives in, the rw crazies demand even more.

This might be one of the reasons why people like McCain are beginning to put their foot down.

Even he can recognize the danger that's brewing.

2012 Senate subcommittee investigation of DHS data fusion centers found that millions of dollars had been spent not on gathering important anti-terrorism information but on collating “a bunch of crap,” which was “unrelated to terrorism” and in fact targeted Americans peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights.
In its promotional material for the ‘See Something, Say Something’ snitch program, the DHS has routinely portrayed white, middle class Americans as the most likely terrorists. Mock news reports and security drills run by the DHS have also depicted gun owners and homeschoolers as violent terrorists.
It’s no surprise that the DHS is now deploying its agents to defend the IRS against the ire of the American people given that both federal agencies have gone to extreme lengths to target law-abiding, conservative, or God forbid “anti-government” Americans as domestic extremists and even terrorists.

A statement from the 9/11 commission:
"The commission found the president and the vice president forthcoming and candid. The information they provided will be of great assistance to the commission as it completes its final report."
That's all you need to know.
What you should also know:
The report cited Clinton as fumbling repeated opportunities to get bin Laden: "The Clinton administration had as many as four chances to kill or capture bin Laden between December 1998 and July 1999...."
So why did Sandy Berger steal documents from the National Archives and there was missing informaton about 9/11 during the Clinton administration?
We'd all like to know that, wouldn't we?
Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton did not hold your naive notion of Bush43 'great assistance'. "Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton must have been waiting all holiday long to launch this grenade against the Administration just as Congress returns and the torture tape inquiry heats up.

MORE than five years ago, Congress and President Bush created the 9/11 commission.

[snip]

The commission’s mandate was sweeping and it explicitly included the intelligence agencies. But the recent revelations that the C.I.A. destroyed videotaped interrogations of Qaeda operatives leads us to conclude that the agency failed to respond to our lawful requests for information about the 9/11 plot. Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation." ..."Of note, Kean and Hamilton clearly include the White House among those who obstructed the Commission’s work.

There could have been absolutely no doubt in the mind of anyone at the C.I.A.— or the White House — of the commission’s interest in any and all information related to Qaeda detainees involved in the 9/11 plot. Yet no one in the administration ever told the commission of the existence of videotapes of detainee interrogations." Check this out: http://emptywheel.firedoglake.com/2008/01/02/...

Your first sentence is accurate, but the differences will be the subject of litigation. Legal experts are divided on the subject.

Either way, the politics suck for Obama.

The rest of your post is your usual used car lot BS.

So how about providing a link to this supposed article DB? Could it be that you're just pulling it out of your ass? No government agency was involved in making any subprime loans it was unregulated mortgage brokers who did it with the express intention of selling them off before they went bad. You didn't describe anything accurately moron you just keep regurgitating the same crap you always do and don't even try to offer a shred of actual evidence to back it up.
You're an idiot DB!
