Obama f---ed up and tried to cover his azz. He knew he would always have those who will believe whatever he said, you all are proof of that.
By the time Obama and Clinton figured it out and help arrived in Benghazi, it was too late and the Ambassador was dead.
Obama f---ed up people, thats it, plain and simple.
the ambassador was dead by the time the White house knew of the attack.

you really should learn about a subject before you make a fool of yourself trying to talk about it.

yeah and he died of a heart attack before the attack ever started, and it was a American crazed killer who got the rest, luckily the Libyans took him out for us.
That as plausible as the lame excuses you bought, please tell us all here how it feels to be so clueless and stupid as to believe everything you hear because they are of the same political mindset.
Keep sitting in your highchair and taking your spoonfed mush and thanking those who give it to you.....fool.

Why can't y'all answer such a simple question?
Because you're full of shit, that's why.
Ya, they decided to send help....like 5 hours after they were dead. Just like your'e brain.

The WhiteHouse Strategy is Hide/Distract until the 'bump in the road', wears down.

republicans are history for the next 4 years and there is't anything they can do about it. They sure do try and persuade all of us who are'nt republicans to put another circus freak in office. I believe that Americans will never turn to republicans again, maybe a well-balanced third party would have a chance and be welcomed to run against a democrat.

It's not about the democrats or the republicans at this point, there isn't that much difference anymore.
I have been a democrat my whole life but I can say without hesitation Obama is a really bad president. Maybe the worst.
Bush was bad but he rose to the occasion after 911 and led this country.
I expected Obama to lead us through these awful economic times but he is making it worse.
He seems more concerned about gay marriage and gun control and other stuff that don't matter now.
He should have made jobs and the economy #1 from day one.

how exactly did Bush rise to the occasion and lead us after 9-11? by telling us to go shopping? by starting a war unrelated to terrorism because of personal wishes? please be specific in how you think he rose to the occasion?

Awww... did you get shown to be a fool again? are your little feelings hurt?

if you had any facts , you would have shown them.

tell me, you blame Obama for going to NV after the Benghazi attack, but after the 9-11 attacks in NY and DC on our own soil...where did Bush go? you see, the Pres. can monitor situations wherever they go. they have more connectivity to the world when they travel than most rulers have in their own offices.

grow up and learn about your own country like a real citizen would...

<quoted text>Very good question.
Ask Lidsay Graham, John McCain,Mitch McConnell, Darrell Issa, etc.... They All could have subpoenaed the survivors to testify at the Congressional Hearings but DIDN'T.
You'd think the testimony of the people there would be valuable if you were interesting in finding the truth. Seems they were only interesting in Grandstanding and making a big show of chewing out people who Weren't there.
Survivors testifying that they wouldn't be alive if help hadn't been sent doesn't really support that narrative, does it.
They don't want answers, they want sound bites to feed to simpletons.
Hillary and Obama Still need to answer for their inaction and disregard for the safety of U.S. personnel despite the multiple requests for more security and multiple warnings. And yes, this should be news the the MSM should cover. It shouldn't take Congressmen wrestling it out to get the truth, but so far their requests to interview the survivors is being blocked by the Obama administration. http://www.forbes.com/sites/richardminiter/20...

After they talked to the people needed to get the ball rolling. good leaders let the people who know what they are doing do it.

perhaps you misunderstood the timeline giving by the military which included the OK from the White House..or more likely, you haven't bothered to learn about he issue you are talking about and just parrot shit you hear from whackjob media sources...
