Obama is a pathological liar. Benghazi is proof of that. And he let Chris Stevens die without issuing an order to help him. Real nice guy, huh?

Proof?

What proof?

Why hasn't FOX sent ANYONE to Benghazi
to "investigate"?

The "lame stream" media sent several, including a GIRL.

FOX?

Same with israel.

Not ONE reporter from the FOX proclaimed "United States BEST ally".

Teabaggers wouldn't be caught "dead" near a war zone.

They just order "others" there, after starting them in the first place.

Poor "chickenhawk" teabaggers.

Why should they? CNN already did and found the Ambassadors diary, log and classified papers still thrown around on the floor. Where oh where was that FBI investigation.

Yeah, you're right.

"Why should they"?

Relying on others has always been the teabagger standard.

Then bitch and whine when they don't produce fast enough or their desired result.

You should know that all to well.

It's a prerequisite for being a teabagger.

Fox sent people to BenGhazi. There wa secret material all over the floors in various rooms. It was evident what happened, yet Obama looked everyone in the eye, and lied his head off. CNN found the same thing.
