You can believe what you want nitwit but it was liberal ideology that broke away from England, abolished slavery, gave women the right to vote, established child labor laws, worker protection and stopped companies from dumping toxic waste into our waterways and air.
You so called conservatives were against all of these things.
You were a history teacher? Seriously?
liberalism is slavery.....

just look at the US today, where half the population is forced to work to support the other half, and allowed to keep only a few crumbs...

Let me know when you get to the facts... the real one anyway!!!
The ambassador is dead and no matter how much Obama blames others for his action,he and the others will always be dead. Obama wanted to reduce the United States military presence in the region in order to make it appear that because of Obama's stature there was no longer hostility in the region. " Ambassador Stevens had sent out a diplomatic cable expressing concerns, on the day he was killed, that security at Benghazi was compromised " http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-22146... "On the evening of September 11, 2012, Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith. Stevens was the first U.S. Ambassador killed on duty since 1979." " a second assault targeted a different compound about one mile away, killing two CIA contractors, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty. Ten others were also injured in the attacks." "In the aftermath of the attack, State Department officials were criticized for denying requests for additional security at the consulate prior to the attack." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Benghazi_a... "The Benghazi attack consisted of military assaults on two separate U.S. diplomatic compounds. The first assault occurred at the main compound, approximately 300 yards long and 100 yards wide, at about 9:40 pm local time (3:40 pm EDT, Washington DC). The second assault took place at a CIA annex 1.2 miles away at about 4 am the following morning."
"Initially, it was reported by the media the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous protest triggered by an anti-Muslim video, Innocence of Muslims. Subsequent investigations determined that there was no such protest and that the attacks were premeditated," Obama and his administration lied about the video on multiple occasions,but more importantly Obama has never accepted personal responsibility for demanding to provide a facade that the area was stable and for pretending that his stature was enough to prevent this type of mayhem. Obama had an election coming up, and to Obama is was all about his own personal political agenda,not about the people in the Middle East.

<quoted text> No, he was complaining Obama had no plan to address the ISIS situation. i.e. he was doing nothing & ignoring the situation.
Then when we do a couple of airstrikes, he complains that they are politically motivated.
Just like I said.
He complained he was doing nothing & then complained he was doing something.
You got caught being uninformed & try to dance around it.
It won't work. Every one knows it.
"a couple of airstrikes" is a wonderful plan....

You have fallen for the israeli propaganda. The weapons found in UN schools were found "in
schools abandoned by the UN due to the intensity of the conflict in those areas."

“When they are in control of the school they can [be assured] that it is free of weapons and no one with arms is allowed in the school." Both militants and the Israeli Defense Forces had occupied those schools in the past.“We deplore that but we cannot control” the schools when the UN is not physically present in the building, said John Ging, Operations Director at the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

“The precise location of the Jabalia Elementary Girls School and the fact that it was housing thousands of internally displaced people was communicated to the Israeli army SEVENTEEN TIMES, to ensure its protection.” But israel shelled it anyway.

Shame on us for restocking israel’s supply of ammunition.

America put Maliki where he is today. A real leader would not have taken no for an answer.
Obama wanted permission. He wanted to tell his base he got us out of Iraq. Both are signs of weakness.
ISIS recognized it more than anyone and filled the vacuum while Obama was declaring he had terrorism on the run on the campaign trail.
Surely, even you must have doubts he has any idea what he's doing other than padding his own legacy which is slowly but surely eroding.
Mindless gibberish.

America put Maliki where he is today? America? ROFLMAO

Five to ten thousand years ago 'scientists'(sheep herders and astronomers) thought that the Sun was small and relatively insignificant. We no that nothing we can do a humans can prevent the sun from burning out.The Sun will burn out. The Sun is becoming more luminous by about 10% every billion years,man does not cause it and man can not prevent it. The Sun will burn out,but not for 5.5 billion years. The Earth can not survive,that is extinction,not man caused.

The only thing that is man caused that can bring extinction to this planet is far left agenda that could cause hundreds of millions of people to die to protect the left wing lies.

Try to educate yourself:

Nuance: a subtle difference or distinction in expression, meaning, response, etc.

"But as in all cults, what's central to the Communist Party is the belief system and the elimination of nuance. From there you're very slowly led down the road to fanaticism and mass murder.
