More interesting is the CBO numbers. We had 30 million prior to Obamacare. Obamacare kicked 15 million off their insurance policies and in 10 years we will have 30 million uninsured.

Not 40 million, 47 million. There are now 47 million uninsured in America. The law did the exact opposite of what it was for. And as BTO said, "You ain't seen nothing yet!"

It's certainly not over. Michael Morrell testified under oath today.

Very interesting outcome.

http://www.politico.com/story/2014/04/michael...

Morell during his testimony Wednesday said,“no doubt it was a terrorist attack.” He said they just didn't know the motivations of those who carried out the attack because they hadn't been caught.

But earlier he testified:“We did not deliberately downplay the role of terrorists in the Benghazi attack in our analysis or in the talking points. And neither I, nor anyone else at the agency, deliberately misled anyone in Congress about any aspect of the tragedy in Benghazi.”

(Can't have it both ways. Either there was "no doubt it was a terrorist attack" or they DID downplay the role of terrorists in the attack.)

When asked about Susan Rice going on five networks to perpetrate the video lie, Morrell said he did not know the talking points would be used by then-U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice in her appearances on the Sunday shows.

Morrell said he did not know who took out the references to Al Qaeda in the talking points.

(But SOMEONE did take the references to Al Qaeda out of the talking points and SOMONE did tell Susan Rice to go on all those television shows and perpetrate a lie about a video.)

So how could the President of the United States not have known misleading and false information would have been perpetrated all over those newscasts and not make a public statement immediately denouncing the lie about a video?

No, it's certainly not over. But the liberal media will turn themselves into a pretzel still trying to convince some it is. And some will gladly ignore the inconsistencies in Morrell's testimony to protect corruption.

nothing.
I'll post it again.

Either the president was telling the truth when he admitted the day after the attack "there were folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start" or Carney perpetrated the lie that had just begun about a spontaneous protest because of a video two days later which Obama continued for two weeks afterwards.

It's either/or. No in between.

Morrell also testified that he had information from the CIA station chief in Libya that there was no protest demonstration in response to a video, but that he choose to ignore that and instead accepted analysis by Washington analysts......
