Benghazi, Projection, And The Dark Obama Obsession
President Obama's most fevered critics have been waiting for a national "aha" moment since he was first inaugurated more than 50 months ago. Coming off an electoral landslide, Obama was instantly greeted by a mob-like movement on the far right that denounced him as a socialist and a communist. Excited conservatives quickly reached for Nazi rhetoric and imagery in an effort to convey the dark threat the Democrat posed to the country.
Amplified by Fox News and a well-funded right-wing media industry, the "grassroots" revolt was portrayed as a sweeping rebuke of Obama. But in truth, the raging critics occupied the loud fringes, a fact confirmed by Obama's easy re-election.
Still, professional detractors have held out hope that at some point Americans would come to see Obama as they see Obama; as a monster of historic proportions who's committed to stripping citizens of their liberties and getting them addicted to government dependencies, like a drug dealer.
This week's House Oversight Committee hearing into the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was supposed to trigger that "aha" event. It was supposed to be The Day Americans Turned On Obama. Indeed, Obama wouldn't be able finish out his second term because the Benghazi revelations were going to be so damaging, Fox New's Mike Huckabee told his radio listeners. And Sean Hannity warned ominously that, "This is going to be a really defining, important week in the Obama presidency, and it's not going to be a good week."
But none of that happened at the hearing. Instead of being the kind of "explosive" Watergate-style hearing that Fox talkers prayed for, Wednesday's hearing sagged under the weight of stubborn facts, and didn't even reach the level of Whitewater hearings, which under Bill Clinton established the modern day mark for pointlessly partisan "scandal" hearings.
Not that it matters to the media players who produced the Benghazi hearings, though. Conservatives continue their Groundhog Day charade, reassuring themselves that the hearing was a hit and that scandal "bombshells" exploded on Capitol Hill.(They did not.)
The larger, common sense question that lingers though is, why? Why keep pounding a story so far into the ground that most news consumers can't even make sense of the convoluted allegations anymore?

COME ON PRESIDENT BARRY COME OUT COME OUT WHEREEVER YOU ARE According to published reports, Hillary Clinton, 65, will confirm her bisexuality in her upcoming memoirs.

Rumors have swirled for years that Mrs. Clinton was an aggressive top, but nothing was ever confirmed. This explains why the former secretary of state and the Obama administration have thrown their full support behind gay marriage.

Simon & Schuster announced in April that Mrs. Clinton’s memoir will be published in 2014 — right before she announces her decision to run for president.

“Hillary’s going to come clean for the votes. She’ll admit that she’s a bisexual and has had lesbian relationships,” a source told The National Enquirer.

Hillary and former President Bill Clinton were married in 1975.

They have one daughter, Chelsea Victoria, 33.

I guess the only question left to ask is — will President Obama come out of the closet before or after he leaves office?

Thanks to loyal reader Ernest O. for the tip.

The story is much too big now and they don't want to be accused of losing their credibility.

ABC? Losing credibility? I made a funny.

Anyway, the propaganists are always the last ones to jump on major news stories only after Fox has been ridiculed for breaking them and reporting them for weeks.

They have to be prodded - like cows - before worrying about their credibility though. They listen to their boss in the WH as long as they can first.

Will add that FOX has been lying, the oversight committee (R's) have been lying, two of the whistleblowers lied and you are lying with out a frikken clue about what you're lying about.
You are starting to sound like deadbeat writer.
Turn off the jack hammer. You might be able to hear what's been going on all around you the entire day.

What we've learned is that people died in a terrorist attack on 9/11 which was called a spontaneous mob due to a video by the two most prominent democratics - the present and future leaders of the democratic party.

Neither one have explained how or why it happened.

Okay, now you can turn it back on. Just wear earplugs.

CLEVELAND -- The man accused of holding three women captive for a decade in his home terrorized the mother of his children, frequently beating her, playing twisted psychological games and locking her indoors, her relatives say.
Several relatives of Grimilda Figueroa, who left Ariel Castro years ago and died last year after a long illness, painted a nightmarish portrait of life with Castro as authorities made public horrifying details of the abuse endured by the imprisoned women.
In interviews with The Associated Press on Thursday, the relatives described Castro as a "monster" who abused his wife and locked his family inside their own home. Their views were at odds with those of some of Castro's family and a neighbor, who knew the former school bus driver only as a happy and respectful man.
Figueroa's relatives said Castro savagely beat her, pushing her down a flight of stairs, breaking her nose and dislocating her shoulder, among other injuries. Her sister, Elida Caraballo, said Castro once shoved Figueroa into a cardboard box and closed the flaps over her head.
"He told her,'You stay there until I tell you to get out,'" said Caraballo, who cried as she recounted her sister's torment. "That's when I got scared and I ran downstairs to get my parents."

Lordy, Obama showed up on so many talk shows and stood in front of the American people so many times and said directly to the victims' families at their funeral that it was a video, I've lost count.
He spoke to the UN blaming the video a week after Hillary and the State Department had already come clean.
But you're an exceptionally good little useful idiot to those who think of you as such. What would they do without you?
BTW, even a Democrat said at the last hearing more hearings are necessary to "get to the bottom of this".
Right now, we're so far from the bottom of things, we need scuba gear.
Sure nimrod. Except this isn't "getting to the bottom of this", like you claim. It's the clear and blatant politicization of a standard process by which talking points are vested throughout multiple agencies before being released. Except in this case, Hillary Clinton happened to be the Secretary of State, one of the agencies involved, so now the Republicans have to figure out a way to make it look as if State "manipulated" the data (rather than just providing input, which is what actually occurred) and then connect the dots to Clinton. 2016 is right around the corner!!!
Your duplicity is breath taking!!
You're now free to resume viewing the Republican propaganda machine, AKA Faux Noise. I think its time for you to move on to Agenda 21 or Obama and DHS buying up guns and ammo to kill everyone 4 or 5 times over.

As I told my oldest daughter the other day during a talk. I don't want to die. I want to live forever. My father was born in 1921. Can you imagine how the world has changed in his lifetime? My youngest daughter was born in 2002. Her life expectancy without all the new medicine is 126 years. That means if she lives an average life she will live to 2128. We live long in this family.
Time to go.
You're not here to read this now. But living another 100 years or so would mean having to work another 75 years or so to afford enjoying your last 175 to 200 years.

Right now, I hope I can just make it to 62. My present job is mentally demanding and my estrogen batteries are running low.

But I'm trying to think of something else to do to supplement my SS and stay busy - just not sure I'd want to have to do anything to make a living for another 75 to 100 years.

Everyone knows the horror those three girls went through by now if they're paying attention to current events. At least the propagandist media are keeping the Kim Kardashian crowd up to snuff on this story anyway.

Probably why you're still out of the loop on national current events.

By the way, where was Obama while the attack was occurring as he left Hillary and Panetta in charge?
It's well known__we've discussed it here__don't forget Petreaus eh? It was after all a CIA operation.

The attack on the Consulate occurred during the evening of the 11th, the attack on the CIA base occurred roughly 7 hours later on the early morning of the 12th.

Did Washington, or anyone anticipate the attack at the CIA base?

Was that even discussed? Fk no it wasn't, Bulldog Hicks was too enamored with his own heroism to get into the details.
