Really liar. Explain what happened to Joe Lieberman, idiot? He was tarred & feathered for not going along with you fascists on the wars. You had no tolerance whatsoever.
Stop lying, moron.
Bull. Lieberman was ALWAYS hawkish. Liberals don't "tar & feather" someone just because they do not follow an agenda with a ring in their nose. We leave that to Republicans.

That is just a plain silly comment. Liberals are extremely intolerant of opposing viewpoints. Try to discuss traditional marriage, try to be a black person opposing Obama's policies, try to be a Christian, and the wrath of the intolerant progressives comes pouring down.
You have already displayed your intolerance this morning.

Were you expecting a prize?... Look at it this way, pot is just a therapeutic reward for people who eventually realize they've been fooled into raising some ungrateful protoplasm for twenty years at their own expense...

It would be idiotic to think a general would be in Benghazi. That is stretching logic.
To set the record straight once and for all...I never said a general was on the ground in Libya. The original post was written last night sometime after 11 p.m.

Realtime just made that part up. And now he's making everyone hysterical.

The first sentence in the original post stated Brig. Gen. Lovell was in Germany but part of the African Command in Libya. Apparently, Realtime insists it's AFRICOM...(which is an abbreviation for African Command).

Whining liars?

¨Conservatives have been unfair to Barack Obama. They blame him for all sorts of things.

But it’s never his fault. Just ask him.

The economy? We all know that was Bush’s fault.

The fact that millions of Americans are still out of work, the lucky ones settling for part-time jobs? Hey, he’s president not a magician!

Who was responsible when the nation’s credit rating was downgraded? Obstinate Republicans, who else?

Who should take the rap for Solyndra, the solar company that President Obama helped finance with $535 million of our tax dollars before it went bankrupt? Blame that one on the Chinese.¨

¨The Obama administration's handling of its multiple scandals paints a picture of those who believe they are above the law. There's a pattern of arrogance, dismissiveness, denial, scapegoating, stonewalling, lying, false professions of ignorance, assurances of accountability and punishing whistle-blowers.¨

The two most common sense baby steps that should have been taken first to lower costs of health care were ignored by Democrats. Why did they ignore them if they would have helped lower costs?

Do some research. You'll find this same information on many sites.
Testifying in front of a House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday on Capitol Hill, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell said the military should have and could have done more to help Americans who were killed in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Lovell is the former deputy director for intelligence at Africa Command. His testimony today is the first testimony from a member of the military who was at Africa Command during the time of the Benghazi attack on the U.S consulate.
Lovell was a member of the military who was at Africa Command during the time of the attack - stationed in Germany - which I pointed out in the first post.
Was that the same testimony where he said the military couldn't have saved lives son?

I mean, if you're going to be selective about your facts and all.....

Wouldn't matter where he was stationed, would it?
Brig. Gen. Lovell testified in front of a House Oversight Committee that the military should have and could have done more to help Americans who were killed in Benghazi.
Your empty insults only prove to make you look like you're out of the loop.
So... you're saying he's claiming he could have saved all their lives son?

1) When Obama tok office the worst recession in 80 years was ongoing, we had a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown, two quagmire wars & just doubled the debt. This all before Obama took office and occurred under the Bush administration. This is a fact.

2) Our credit was downgraded because we had a faction of our government that were willing to default on our financial obligations. This was the Tea Party Republicans.

Again, this is fact.

3) Since the beginning of 2011, Republicans have blocked stimulus efforts at creating more jobs. This is fact.

4) Solyndra had a new design for solar panels that did not use silicon. Silicon prices had gone up which made Solyndra panels more cost competitive. Solyndra got in trouble when the price of silicon dropped & China slashed its panel pricing. This is fact.

5) The Republicans tried to fabricate several scandals including Benghazi & the IRS. Neither were scandals at all. Neither have gone anywhere. Nothing was found.

"While people on the ground were fighting for their lives, discussions among U.S. leaders outside Libya "churned on about what we should do," but the military waited for a request for assistance from the State Department, Lovell said.

There were questions about whether the U.S. military could have responded to Benghazi in time, but "we should have tried," Lovell said"
