13 Benghazis on Bush's Watch..

Republicans pushing for a Benghazi investigation entirely ignored the dozen-plus consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were allegedly 'keeping us safe.'"

13 embassy attacks happened under Bush's watch.

In one of these attacks a US diplomat was killed. David Foy was directly targeted by attackers in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2006, and died along with three others.

The most fatal attack took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. 36 were killed including nine Americans.

In another attack on Karachi, 12 were killed and 51 wounded. In Sana'a, Yemen, 16 were killed including an American student. In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 9 were killed.

Between 2 and 6 people were killed in attacks on US embassies in Calcutta, Islamabad, Tashkent, Istanbul, and Damascus in the years 2002-2008.

Embassies in Athens, Greece, Denpasar, Indonesia, and Sana'a, Yemen were also attacked during Bush's presidency without causing fatalities.

Just where was Daryl Issa???

Thank you, it's not a paper route, I mow lawns.
Sorry I don't remember Liz but I hear she was stunning.
Sorry, XBOX U.

Jay, you once told me (in writing) that I was too intelligent to be a 13 year old...

Everything I say about your son is to rib you, not him. He would probably like me, almost everyone does.

Republicans Secretly Think Hillary Clinton Will Crush Them In 2016

As Republicans begin to gear up for the 2016 presidential race, GOP insiders have one major concern that wasn't mentioned anywhere in the RNC's autopsy report.

Her name is Hillary Clinton, and Republicans worry that they won't have a shot against her, regardless of what changes the party makes before 2016.

Although most Republican strategists would not go on the record disparaging the party's chances, in private conversations with Business Insider, many savvy GOP insiders conceded that any Republican nominee would face an uphill battle against the former Secretary of State.

"If she runs, it'll be almost impossible, I fear," one Washington-based Republican strategist told Business Insider.

A New York-based GOP media strategist concurred:

"It will be extremely hard for Republicans to beat Hillary in 2016," he said, adding that the difficulties would be compounded if the party nominates another candidate who fails to ignite the conservative base.

"Should Hilary run and Jeb [Bush] be the nominee, how can you ever defend the Bush years against the Clinton years?"

Recent polling validates these concerns. A new Quinnipiac survey released Thursday found that Clinton would beat both Bush and Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio in a head-to-head match up in the Sunshine State.

According to that poll, if the race were held today, Clinton would dominate Bush, 51 percent to 40 percent, and beat Rubio 52 to 41 percent. Her favorability rating is also much higher than either of the home-state Republicans — 62 percent of Florida voters view Clinton favorably, compared to 50 percent for Bush and 41 percent for Rubio.

On a national scale, Clinton left office with record-high favorability ratings — a January Washington Post/ABC News poll found that a full 67 percent of Americans viewed the outgoing Secretary of State favorably.

In addition to her popularity, Clinton's national name-recognition and extensive fundraising network — not to mention her experience running a presidential campaign — make her a formidable opponent to both Democrats and Republicans.

But the biggest problem for the GOP is that if Clinton decides to run, the Democratic primary will likely turn into a de facto contest to pick her running mate, giving the party a big head start in the general election. In the meantime, Republicans will likely have to slog through a contentious primary with what is shaping up to be a very crowded field.

"Hillary's path forward will likely influence the breadth of Republican field as much as the Democratic," a Washington-based GOP strategist told Business Insider.

Still, some Republicans are holding out hope that a candidate will emerge who can beat Clinton.

"Republicans can beat Hillary, but no one has emerged yet," one New Hampshire-based GOP operative said. "But three years is a long time."

Michael Duncan, a Texas-based Republican consultant, concurred:

"Clinton brings the stature and fundraising prowess of someone who's been in Washington for 20 years. But I also think that advantage is mitigated by voters' widespread mistrust of our established political leaders," Duncan said. "Republicans should look to the 2008 primary as a guide and nominate a fresh-faced outsider [who] can create the contrast Barack Obama did. Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are two of those transformative figures."

Can Hillary Clinton make Bill Clinton her running mate if she gets the Democratic bid for President?

Constituional scholars of all stripes have differing opinions on the question. The positions holding that former President Clinton cannot be nominated Vice President are fairly well known, however there are credible positions that believe the opposite to be true. There has been no declarative answer on this from the United States Supreme Court to date.

The U.S. Constitution, it could be argued, only bars those "ineligible" to be elected President, to be Vice President. The Constitition specifically states that to be eligible, that you must be a U.S. citizen, 35 years old or older and a resident of the United States for 14 years or more to be eligible to be elected to the office of President. Bill Clinton fits all the constitutionally mandated criteria to be eligible to hold the office of President. Therefore one could argue that he could hold the office of Vice President and then assume the office of President not via an election, but in the unfortunate event the elected President could not fulfill his or her term of office for some reason.

If one were a strict constructionist, then this argument would be very compelling as the 12th amendment explicitly uses the words "ineligible to the office " and what the criteria are that make you "ineligible to the office" are clearly outlined in Article II of the U.S. Constitution, which outlines exactly what makes one "eligible to the office of President".

In addition the 22nd amendment, that was designed to stop a repeat of three terms in a row, which FDR accomplished only bars a person from being ELECTED President three times not from becoming President three times. If Bill Clinton was to become President through some other means than an election, he would not be violating the text but possibly the spirit of the 22nd Amendment. Note that the 22nd Amendment does not mention anywhere, the position of Vice President.

Opinion: Clinton/Castro 2016?

I know what you’re thinking.

Looking ahead to the 2016 election the day after President Obama was re-elected is pretty much the classic example of the media getting ahead of itself with unlikely fancies. But when do you think Mitt Romney decided he would challenge Obama in 2012? Was it the night John McCain lost or the next morning? It was likely the second he lost the nomination to McCain himself. So looking ahead to 2016 is fair game, and when you do, what you see is a Democratic Party that is ripe for the taking by Hillary Clinton.

RELATED: Record Latino vote key to Obama’s re-election

Now Clinton has repeatedly said she won’t run and plenty of Democrats would also have an eye on 2016. Someone like Andrew Cuomo comes to mind. But during the Democratic National Convention there were reports that his people were asking party heavyweights if they would support Hillary if she runs. The tea leaves were clear: If she’s running, the party will support her, and challengers will melt away.

If Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2016 — she may win or she may lose — but San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will be her vice presidential nominee.

This is how we get there.

Clinton would come in to the campaign as an experienced, respected leader. Her bonafides are clear, and unlike Obama who was required to select an experienced guiding hand like Joe Biden in 2008, Clinton would be free to choose whoever she likes.

So why Castro? Maybe you weren’t paying attention as the election results rolled in on Tuesday.

The 2012 election proved that 2008 was no fluke. America is a land of changed demographics, less about center-right conventional wisdom and more about ascendant voting groups making their voices heard. Latinos supported Obama’s re-election by a 75 to 23 margin nationally, rejecting the Republican party as currently constituted. These Latino voters — who everyone is talking about now as if this was the first time they ever voted in a presidential election — are 63 percent Mexican-American according to the 2010 Census — and so is Julian Castro.

Castro, the first Latino to give the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention has a biography to match Obama’s — if not his soaring oratory skills. Castro’s mother was a civil rights activist for Mexican-American rights and he attended Stanford as well as Harvard Law School. Castro is also the youngest mayor of one of America’s 50 largest cities.

In the run up to the election, there was a notion that Latino politicians equal Latino votes. It’s as absurd as expecting all women to vote for Clinton just because she is too. While Republicans have done a better job than Democrats of grooming successful Latino politicians like Marco Rubio, Brian Sandoval and Susanna Martinez, it is an open question as to how Republican Latinos would do in front of a national electorate in light of the party’s tarnished standing with Hispanic voters right now.

But a ticket with a young, charismatic, Latino leader from the party most Latinos have supported in recent elections would be a different story, and the pride and historic nature of the chance to elect the first Latino vice president can not be discounted.

Stephen Nuño, Northern Arizona University political science professor and NBC Latino contributor sees an opportunity for a Clinton/Castro ticket.

“My guess is both parties are looking for ways to bridge the past with the future,” he says.“A Clinton/Castro ticket would certainly fit that role. I don’t think Castro would have a problem with that in four years and with the proper nurturing from the seasoned veterans, he can be a force in national politics.”

Nuño says Castro would have to make careful choices in the next few years because “his biggest problem is determining a pathway up the ladder in a state that is still managing a way to deal with the changing demographics” but that Castro is one of the few Latinos on the Democratic landscape who may actually resonate nationally.

So it all starts to make sense now. Bill Clinton barnstorming for Obama — going wherever the campaign needed him, as often as they asked. As the New York Times wrote, many believe this was about ensuring an optimal environment for Hillary to run as it was about ensuring Obama’s re-election. How do you think Obama might repay the Clintons? One can envision him traveling the country, whipping up the Democratic base and becoming the de facto fundraising cash cow for the Democrats for years to come. Now you have Hillary, with the first African-American president deeply in her corner. In a changing America, the only thing you would need is a strong Latino presence to signal to Hispanic voters that their voices matter and have been heard loud and clear.

Clinton/Castro 2016.

Sorry...... He's smarter and more informed than all of you put together, and all if you put together against him.... You still lose.

But keep telling yourself a everything you Need to to make yourselves look smart.
