You are very good at putting words in other people's mouths. You also think you have the authority to express other people's opinions and define their lives without even really knowing them. I remember you now from the immigration and public worker debates.
Your finger pointing "he did it too" excuse didn't work with your mother and it doesn't work with me. Did this administration act accordingly and appropriately in this incident? That is the question on the table now. If they did, so be it. If they didn't they should be held accountable as should all politicians who make the same mistake. You can stomp your feet and swear that I do not mean that all you want, but I do. You act as though I have the personal authority to conduct these hearings. Believe me, if I did, you would be complaining about a whole lot more of them.
I hold all politicians, immigrants, citizens, races, genders and Americans to the same standards. It is the starting point of most of my opinions. Obviously, you do not know me as well as you think you do.
You really need to stop defining other people and speaking for them. Try arguing your own points and quit making up mine. You look foolish.
You do the exact same thing to others that you accuse me of doing. You always have a cop out excuse when asked why you won't hold Republicans to the same standards you do Democrats. Just saying you do is not enough. Your posts on many topics suggest otherwise. It was the same on immigration as it is on this "so called Benghazi scandal."
When you provide some proof showing your outrage for Republican wrong doing on these forums with the same vigor and "American's demand answers" attitude that you do Democrats. You can stomp your foot all you want. It might work on your husband but it won't work on me.
It's true I don't know you. But I know the Appalled who posts on these forums. Appalled is all too easy to define. It doesn't take a super genius to figure you out or your opinion. I guess that what annoys you the most.

I take my complaints straight to the top. I would do the same thing if the Republicans were in office because I do not see the POTUS as a R or a D. He is the American in charge and subject to my complaints and compliments, whatever applies.

As far as me speaking for others, I would have to disagree, obviously. One of my cardinal rules of debate is to make sure that I speak only for myself, unlike others who continually say "we" (not naming names, Neighbor). LOL, as a matter of fact, I have previously been accused of using the word "I" way too much. So, which is it?

You really don't make any sense. If someone agrees with a republican view, why would they criticize it? And just because someone criticizes a dem does not mean they have never criticized a republican.

As a matter of fact, I am currently reviewing my position on the overtime bill recently presented by the republicans. So far, not real happy, but still looking at all sides. There, are you happy now?

I find it interesting that there has been no mention of former Secretary of State Gate's TV interview. I find it odd that a Republican,who was appointed by W,is not mentioned. Professor can you give me a summary of his interview?

What I find interesting, is everyone referring to Hillary stating "What Difference Does It Make", yet immediately following that, she added "We need to ask questions and get every detail". I think that's what we are doing? Also, remember a few years ago when Hillary stated "It's patriotic to ask questions & to question your government". <just say'n.

Lets all stay on point here too ok? Who lied, why did they lie, and where exactly was the Commander In Chief during that 7.5 hour attack? Lets face it, facts now show they lied, its really holding the right people accountable for the shameful actions & results.

Bush retired 5 years ago. Obama is president and responsible for the collapse of America. No one else. Obama claimed that Bush's spending was unconstitutional & unpatriotic. So comparing Obama to Bush, Obama went out and proved to the nation that he is way more unconstitutional & unpatriotic than Bush.

We were attacked by Obama's friends. He lied to America to protect his friends. He had his administration lie to America to protect his friends. The response to America being attacked has never been handled the way Obama & this administration handled it. Past presidents always condemned it and sought justice. Obama blames America for it. A very disturbing and deranged ideology from a president. You constant practice of referring to Bush every time Obama fails America makes you look very foolish, na´ve, and uneducated about is actually going on around you. That's why I define you as a Low Information Citizen. Only you can fix that!

Neighbor,

When they cant defend it, and they cant accept it, they resort to distorting and demonizing the truth and the messenger. That's a ignorant response of the uneducated.

Sorry, Professor, I am going to have to disagree on this one. It is accusations like this one that keep normally intelligent democrats from seeing past a right wing rant and looking clearly at the evidence.

When Benzhazi was going down, I am sure that a group of people from this administration quickly gathered to assess the situation and decide what to do. I would not be surprised to find out that the conversation was not highlighted by "how should we save these Americans" and instead included "how will this affect the election" which to the detriment of our country is how both sides work these days.

I sincerely doubt that one lone person with a Muslim idealogy, could stand at the helm of this country and say "leave them alone, they are my friends" and get away with it even within his own party. If a decision was made to not get involved, it was most likely based on preservation of the in house democratic party.

I remember a time when presidents took office and after the election you rarely ever heard their party affiliation mentioned. That's not to say that it wasn't always lingering in the background but at least in the decision making process, the country was thought of as a whole, protected as a whole, and stood together as a whole.

The evolution of our political process has brought us to this point. This country needs a really good housecleaning.

I disagree with you on Benghazi. Obama calls the shots on a situation like Benghazi. Here is a little refresher video for you on my position of "four more" referring back to Bush on everyone of Obama's disasters. Obama lies to America. Here is the one I mentioned in my post.

I choose to use these First Person pronouns to express my personal opinion. Others use "we" and "us" which I guess is technically correct when referring to their numerous aliases.

Would you feel better if I picked a name and started using a proper noun.....how about "Darryl says.......".

Your answer to Post No. 58: Cricket, cricket. Chirp, chirp. Spin. Dodge. Divert.

Let it go, Neighbor. I'm not the one who chose to cheat. If you do not want to be accused of being someone you are not, then don't pretend to be people you are not.

And for Pete's sake, quit running around your home and office using all your technology to Judge It! A first grader could see the pattern and path you leave behind.
