Though the apathy shown by the Obama administration over the urgent pleas for a response to the terrorist attacks in Benghazi is utterly shameful, the arrogance of this administration in lying to the American people and congress is truly abominable.

The true shame in the Far Right’s obsession with this tragedy is the effect on the families of the victims. This entire process is being instrumented as a ruse to attempt to shame Hillary Clinton and our President. Our Republican Congressmen spend their days trying to Bamboozle Obama instead of doing what they are paid for by representing their constituents. See what kind of job they’ve done applying the blackface to the POTUS at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/ba... Their hands are sticking to this tar baby as the public is becoming increasing impatient with the nonsense and waste of taxpayer money.

They obviously knew it was an act of terror, why blame it on that Islam video?
Why spend so much effort and lie about that?
I am wondering if Obama was worried he would have to respond militarily if everyone knew it was carried out by a terror group,
This isn't bamboozling, this is wanting the truth.
To look the other way just because its President Obama is wrong, I know democrats and republicans both agree that this administration needs to explain why it did what it did, truthfully this time.

Are you saying never mind that people died, Republicans just want to shame Obama an Hillary? They should be ashamed. Wh was told they were under attack, yet they did nothing.The public has found out Democrats have lied and lied to make Obama appear better for the election. He didn't want any blemishes to appear - Al Queda is on the run.

gee sparky, last I saw was the mother of one of the 4 killed demanding some kind of truthful answers from the source in DC about the death of her son, the truth not more phony 'talking points'.

on the other pages you just said the WH gave specific stand down orders to specific units...which is it? did they do nothing or were they micromananging the whole deal?

So why do you keep avoiding the glaring fact that you have stated that Obama did absolutely nothing, and also stated that he micromanaged the whole ordeal down to telling specific units to stand down?

why can you not grow up enough to admit you don't have a clue as to what you are talking about? both of these cannot be true. clearly just making shit up. man up and admit you were wrong. proven wrong. undeniably untrue statements...

The stand down order was issued twice? Why do you think no one came to help except the 2 former SEALS that disobeyed the orders. Your President is a coward. He has to live with what he did. Of course it won't bother him, because he has no conscience.

If he could see that, he wouldn't be such a simpleton. Just be content to laugh at their impotent rage as their betters control the world around them.

oh....simpleton doesn't even begin to describe this tool...

in one post he says obama didn't even make a call from the WH, then in the nest he says he was making stand down orders to specific units across the globe.

he follows whatever he was told to parrot and understands none of it...

sad, really, that a human in this day and age could be so ignorant...but then,,,texas, you know....

Hicks most certainly did. Open your closed ears you Azz. You people never acknowledge the truth. If it doesnt benefit Obama, then make up lies.
