You let Nancy Pelosi off the hook for not reading the ACA.....
I didn't let anyone off the hook for not reading the ACA. If you had read my posts at the time, you would realize that I was very vocal about the bill being too all encompassing. I criticized members of Congress for not reading it and I criticized Obama for shoving it down our throats.
That said, it was passed and it IS the law of the land and, it is far better than doing nothing. So, IMO, it is up to each and everyone of us to see that it is a success. The good outweighs the bad.

How about the federal government removing its boot off the neck of the competitive free market to create more jobs?

Not only have numerous sources previously debunked the Benghazi information being peddled by the Republicans and Fox News, but none of these people raised a single word of protest when, for example, American embassies in Yemen and Pakistan were attacked numerous times. Why didn't the Bush administration do something to secure the compounds after the first attacks? Why didn't he provide additional security?

Where was your inquest after the Karachi attacks, Mr. Graham? Where were you after the Sana'a attacks, Mr. Hannity? What about all of the embassy attacks in Iraq that I didn't even list here, Mr. McCain? Do you realize how many people died in attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates when Bush was supposedly keeping us safe, Mr. Ailes? Just once I'd like to hear David Gregory or George Stephanopoulos or Wolf Blitzer ask a Republican member of Congress about the above timeline and why they said nothing at the time of each attack. Just once.

Nearly every accusation being issued about Benghazi could've been raised about the Bush-era attacks, and yet these self-proclaimed truth-seekers refused to, in their words, undermine the commander-in-chief while troops were in harm's way (a line they repeated over and over again during those years).

So we're only left to conclude the obvious. The investigations and accusations and conspiracy theories are entirely motivated by politics and a strategy to escalate this to an impeachment trial. In doing so, the Republicans have the opportunity not only to crush the president's second term, but also to sabotage the potential for a Hillary Clinton presidency.

Even if they never arrive at that goal, they have in their possession a cudgel formed of horseshit -- a means of flogging the current administration with the singularly effective Republican marketing/noise machine, including the conservative entertainment complex. Very seldom does this machine fail to revise history and distort the truth. Ultimately, they don't even need a full-blown impeachment proceeding when they have a population of way too many truthers and automatons who take all of these lies at face value -- not to mention dubiously sourced chunks of "truth" proffered by radio and cable news conspiracy theorists who, if nothing else, are masters at telling angry conservatives precisely what they want to hear: that the probably-Muslim president is weak on terrorism. And so they'll keep repeating "Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate, Benghazi-Gate!" without any regard for history or reality. Like always.

i'd like carol to explain this.....
March 2, 2006: Third Attack on Karachi U.S. Consulate Killed U.S. Diplomat
U.S. Diplomat David Foy was specifically targeted in the third attack in as many years on the Karachi consulate compound. He was one of four people killed. The bomb occurred two days before President Bush was to visit Pakistan and also targeted the Marriot hotel in an upscale neighborhood of Karachi.
This was a planned and coordinated attack that nobody covered as more than a news item.

3 times in 3 years. puts a new spin on 'preventable'.
Bush didn't blame it on a stupid video and a falsehood he knew was a lie just to win an upcoming election.

Do you even comprehend how serious the consequences would be for this president if the liberal media weren't in lock down and black out mode to keep you from realizing it?

The same liberal media who went after Nixon with both barrels blazing for a much lesser offense and cover up?

Because Obama's apology tour failed, bowing to the Saudi King didn't work and because Obama is killing innocent civilians.

Too bad Obama doesn't care about what is best for our population. Obama is making our country indistinguishable for the older generation. Do you think they would have ever thought that someone occupying The White House would use executive privilege to undermine Congress? Do you think they would have believed any of the lies that Obama has been throwing out , sixty or seventy years ago?

News flash!

Panetta told the Senate Armed Services Committee in February of last year that it was him who informed the president that "there was an apparent attack going on in Benghazi."

When asked directly: "Secretary Panetta, do you believe that unequivocally at that time we knew that this was a terrorist attack?"

Panetta replied: "There was no question in my mind that this was a terrorist attack."

...Fox didn't read Panetta's mind assuming there was no question in his mind it was a terrorist attack minutes before briefing the president.

Panetta opened his mouth and said it himself.

Yes, Bush is blameless. Clinton had gutted the CIA and given foreign intelligence to the FBI, who proved beyond any doubt they were incompetent at it. There was no intelligence other than what was being given to us by countries rebuilding Saddam Hussien's war machine and being paid with money stolen from the UN's oil-for-food scam.
Yes, we could have prevented 9/11(2001). The FBI had the detailed 9/11 plan in their possession, but some liberal judge wouldn't let the FBI look at Moussaoui's hard drive and read the plans.
Well, for some reason, the lie Obama spewed for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi was created before the attack, and CNN changed their story line to match that lie. That means the White House was part of the Al Qaeda plan to kill Stevens.
If the White House was part of the plan, the White House could have prevented it, dumbass.
Oh, yeah. I forgot to mention that nobody believes Obama has anything to do with government other than read from the teleprompter when he's ordered to do so. So, no, Obama just doesn't have the authority in the White House to do anything. They don't even tell him what's going on. That's how unimportant he is. He most likely didn't even know the explanation being given to everyone to repeat was a lie, until it was pointed out as soon as Susan Rice embarrassed the entire country with it.
Yes, you've got acute schizophrenia blues. Right down to the bottom of your shoes.
