Let's review. Which part of my post was a lie?
Republicans can be criticized for not doing more to address health care reform?
It's not an easy undertaking?
The Democrats rejected HillaryCare at one time which was similar to ObamaCare?
What we have now is a partisan tax law that gives too much power over our health care to the federal government, the IRS, politicians and bureaucrats with all the red tape?
If ever there was a time for both sides to sit down and compromise on a mutually doable health care reform, the time was in 2009?
Both sides were prepared to come to the table with solutions that were long overdue and both sides could live with?
The Democrats blew it?
Probably the partisan tax law giving power to bureaucrats and the Democrats blew it is what you want to be a lie. Even though all of it is true.
Right?
Cough__all of your posts are lies or gibberish on the fly, face it babe you're a phony.

Hillary wrote a book detailing her health care plans rejection. Living History__you likely skipped it in favor of some TV docudrama. She noted that those with good health care plans, savings and home equity would see expanding health care to the poor and lower middle class as some sort of threat to their own well being and of course she was exactly right.

Republicans and Democrats alike, flush with insurance lobby $$$ laughed Hillary right off the stage. She might have been talking about your broke and poorly insured azz__of course you didn't know it at the time it was only 1993 and FOX News didn't exist yet nor did topix or many of the other "places" where you pizz away your time in an attempt to somehow "stand out."

Hind sight is 20/20. The attack on Benghazi only lasted about forty-five minutes before security agents from the CIA Annex along with 16 Libyan Security guards regained control. By the time Panetta & Dempsey met with Obama, all the surving Americans had retreated to the annex and were deemed safe. The rescue team from Tripoli arrived at the annex within 3 hours from the initial attack on the consulate and within forty-five minutes of the start of the second hour long assault on the annex. To say that "we should have at least tried" is a personal opinion that would have made absolutely no difference in the long run.
The general that said, at least we should have tried, said the same thing. It probably wouldn't have changed anything.

yes, only FOX is allowed to talk down to the other races. i especially love it when carol starts telling us what O'Reilly thinks is wrong with black people and what they need to do to fix it. sometimes the even pay a 'black conservative' to sit there and repeat what Bill just said. it's all very convincing.

You were telling Galt that you were a genius and he was dumb. BIG problem-the genius made a grammar error.

That is the reason your error was pointed out.

Two senior House Republicans from California squared off Thursday over testimony by a retired Air Force general that the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans was terrorism — underscoring what one political observer told Newsmax was yet another rift that divides the GOP as it heads into the fall's congressional elections.

In testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, retired Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell testified that U.S. forces "should have tried" to get to the Libyan outpost in time to help save Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, including two Navy SEALs.

Lovell, who was deputy director for intelligence at Africa Command at the time, blamed the State Department for not making stronger requests for action. It was clear, he said, that the assault was terrorism and not a protest to an anti-Muslim video, as the Obama administration initially described it.

But Rep. Buck McKeon, the California Republican who chairs the House Armed Services Committee, slammed Lovell's testimony, saying that he was too far down the chain on Sept. 11, 2012, to provide strong insight into what occurred and that his comments provided no new information.

"He confirmed what my committee has understood for some time, that the military never believed this was a protest gone bad, and that the president fundamentally failed to posture our forces to respond to any emergency in the weeks before 9/11," McKeon said in a statement.

The congressman, who is retiring after 11 terms in the House, added that Lovell "did not serve in a capacity that gave him reliable insight into operational options available to commanders during the attack, nor did he offer specific courses of action not taken.

"The Armed Services Committee has interviewed more than a dozen witnesses in the operational chain of command that night, yielding thousands of pages of transcripts, e-mails, and other documents," the statement added. "We have no evidence that Department of State officials delayed the decision to deploy what few resources [the Department of Defense] had available to respond.

"In the end," McKeon said, "while …Lovell did not further the investigation or reveal anything new, he was another painful reminder of the agony our military felt that night; wanting to respond but unable to do so."

McKeon's statement was a direct slap to his fellow Golden State Republican, Rep. Darrell Issa, the Oversight Committee's chairman, who has long kept up the pressure on the White House to fully explain the attacks that also killed information management officer Sean Smith and former SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Dave, you can't put the smoke back in the gun. It's not as if Obama hasn't been caught lying. Numerous times. Call it his leadership style. It's how he rolls. It's how you all roll.
Riiiight.

So a good example of what conservatives are looking for is..... who?

The economy is lackluster at best and the Obama admin is still running around with the goal posts concerning Obamacare.
