So you are saying John McCain would meet with Al Qaeda to see what they needed. I get it.
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I posted some questions.
In the English language, there is a difference between making a statement and asking a question.
Perhaps with this explanation of how the written English language works, you can now read the post and understand how stupid your reply was. Here's the post again:
Which rebel leaders? Al Qaeda?
That's important, you know.
Can you identify the different rebel factions in Syria?
Which factions are Wahhabist terrorists?
Are we arming them?
Got an answer to any of these quesitons?

Michelle Bachmann is part of a Congressional group going to Russia to investigate the Boston bombings.
WTF???
What a waste of time & money & what an embarrassment for other countries to see the idiots that are elected to Congress.
Let's see....
Terrorist goes to the terrorist hub in Russia and comes back to build a sophisticated bomb and bombs Boston. The Russians warned Obama about this terrorist.
I can't see any reason to go talk directly to the Russians.

Republicans' claims are far more likely than Democrats' to be rated false by the fact-checking site PolitiFact, according to a study released Tuesday.

Since January, PolitiFact has rated 52 percent of Republicans' statements as mostly or entirely false, compared to just 24 percent of Democrats' statements, the study found. In the first three weeks of May, amid controversies over the attacks in Benghazi, Libya and investigations at the Internal Revenue Service and the Department Of Justice, 60 percent of Republicans' statements were rated as false, compared to 29 percent of those made by Democrats.

George Mason University's Center for Media and Public Affairs, which conducted the study, looked at 100 claims, 46 made by Democrats and 54 by Republicans.

Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-Minn.) claim that the IRS runs a "huge national database" of personal details, for instance, got a "pants on fire" rating.

“While Republicans see a credibility gap in the Obama administration, PolitiFact rates Republicans as the less credible party,” George Mason University CMPA president Robert Lichter wrote in a release with the Tuesday report.

The center released similar findings last year when it compared the Obama and Romney campaigns, giving Obama higher marks on truthfulness.

The idea that you asked if John McCain met with Al Qaeda to see what help they needed implies that we would have given he opportunity.

The idea you ask shows that you just aren't very well informed, as we already suspected.

After all, wouldn't a Republican want to get Al Qaeda to attack another consulate so they could mount another investigation in hopes of winning more votes?

After all, they already used the deaths of 4 Americans in Libya for political purposes, they have already made sure our recovery from the Bush recession suffered for political purposes, so heck, why not arrange another terrorist attack.

McCain was probably seeing if the RNC & the NRA could hire a few terrorist.

That works both ways. American voters are fed up with partisan politics. The more Obama is a bipartisan politician the more Americans will see tea party partisan republicans as the problem in holding the country back from making social and economic progress and they will be booted out of office. The President's plan already worked in South Carolina with hardline tea party leader Jim DeMint chose not to run for reelection and now in Minnesota; Michelle Bachmann said that she won't run for reelection. Crazy like a Fox(Hooray for Obama!)

You got that wrong. The Russians went to Obama's FBI to ask for help on tracking and Intelligence gathering on suspected Russian-American contacts with the anti-government Chechen movement.

Oh no, not at all. We think it's a Good thing to speak with Russia and see what they have to say, about what was ignored in reference to Boston.

Your whole comment lacks reality. It is obvious you have not keeping up with current events. The Obama admin has used the full power of the government to target individuals they perceived as enemies to the Obama admin. That is the common thread in most of these scandals and as mealy mouth as most of the main stream media has been the last thing they have pushed is how fair Obama has been and his sincerity to reach across party lines. In fact most have back off reporting anything but the bare facts of what is going on.
