Truth is Obama's greatest enemy.

Democratic mantra: " If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." (Or at least Obama his Obamabots will.)

Not as of the date of that interview. That means you are lying yet again.
Ahmed Abu Khattala is the leader of the local militia the Ansar al-Sharia militia. Which is not Al Qaeda.
That interview took place over a month after the attack.
So what did this have to do with your supposed cover up???
The video the White House and State Department watched of the entire attack proved the Obama story a lie.

Ansar al-Sharia is Al Qaeda, moron.

Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Can you show me any proof Obama had of any spontaneous demonstration? No, you can't. There never was any reason to believe there was any spontaneous demonstration. The spontaneous demonstration lie was invented as a lie... and somehow CNN knew and changed their story line from the truth to the Obama lie before the attack in Benghazi began.

Since it's obvious Obama lied for two weeks, why did Obama lie covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi?

Humans occur as male and female. The normal union is between a male and a female.
The normal union of a man with a woman is obviously different that the abnormal homosexual union, thus not equal.
Because it's obvious they are different, why should they be treated as the same?

I try...really I do. But this is the time in most everyone's life where they want to relax and reflect on where they are and how they got there and not where they're still going.

But maybe you're right and it's just me.

Being a homeowner again is exciting. We're making an offer on a home today as a matter of fact. But there might be some competition which makes me crazy and we might have to go back to square one again.

It's the reality of this weird economy that's really making me stock up on hair color.

i see no reason to even respond to you anymore. you do not live in the real world, you are mentally unstable and need to seek help. i hope you find it. you may still be able to live a full and productive life.
Why is there a law making two things that are very obviously different the same? Wouldn't that be denial of reality?... which is insanity, isn't it?

Way to go Mr. President.

The abortion rate in the United States dropped to its lowest point since the Supreme Court legalized the procedure in all 50 states, according to a study suggesting that new, long-acting contraceptive methods are having a significant impact in reducing unwanted pregnancies.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health...

But OMG, lets not make contraceptions more readily available for all those sluts out there.

My God, what would the right whiners do without the abortion issue to rally their feeble minded base.

They can enter into any contract they want to draw up. That's their perogative. Nothing ever prevented homosexuals from writing any contract between themselves they wanted. The issue is equating the normal heterosexual union with the abnormal homosexual union. They are obviously different.
So, why would you want anyone to think they are the same?

Obama & Clinton lied, people died...
People died because Congress slashed spending on diplomatic security and U.S. embassy construction.

FACT: Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic Security positions.

In 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans ignored.

House Republicans cut the Administration’s request for Embassy Security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and an additional cut of $331 million in fiscal 2012....

Rep. Jason Chaffetz,(R-Utah), in answer to the question,“Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?”:

“Absolutely! Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country.... When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

Republicans must shoulder the blame for the attack on Benghazi. It was directly related to their decision to make protecting the consulate a low priority.

Shame, shame on House Republicans.

Actually, Obama had proof of nothing so why wouldn't an event happen in Benghazi that happened in many Muslim cities around the globe?

There was no lie.

If it were just me, I would. But my husband is younger (by 8 years) and still has another 12 to 15 years in the workforce before retiring. That's long enough to put some equity in a home to refinance or sell - and then both of us could move to a graveyard waiting home.
But guess you're right in some way. If the economy truly does go south - and I mean in the Antarctic sense of the word south - it won't matter what's over our heads. Or anyone else's for that matter.
In fact, we'd probably be smarter to invest in high-grade camping equipment.
When you're addicted to simple answer for every problem then complex solutions for a complex world doesn't hold up in your fantasy land of "Pleasantville"
For instance the stock market took a hiding today based on what most analysts say the cause is weather. The US big freeze has stopped people from spending and manufacturing is also down due to the same reason. Now in your simple world Climate change does not fit into the equation, its a non issue UNTIL it costs. Then you have this dilemma of making choices to either do something about it or put all your money on one horse(do nothing) and let it ride.
If climate change keeps on course you have NO idea how much this will cost you personally and the country and this is just ONE example of the different times we live in now compared to the idealistic world of the 1950's & 60's

They are not all graveyard waiting homes; you may be among the younger of the residents but the things to consider is lower taxes, lower cost of buying in. I know a man in his 70's who sold his big house and bought 6 units, he lives in one and rents the others and spends his time travelling rather than maintaining a house that he thought his children and grandchildren would visit; they didn't so he sold it and is free. Plus, there are no children there and it's quiet.
