I'm not nearly as gullible as you clowns on the right. I don't jump to conclusions, I don't foam at the mouth and rush to blame. I live in the REAL world where stuff happens and people die.

And don't start with that right wing, tea party crap putting words in peoples mouths. It's been done to death. There is no one in this country that doesn't feel for the families of ANY American killed in the line of duty, you jerk.

You simpletons are crying now, but not so much when thousands were dying in Iraq for YOUR real lies. Not the one that lives only in your head. Along with not much else, I'm beginning to see.

Oh, and by the way, what do you think could have been done about the Benghazi attack. How long would it have taken to get sufficient force prepped and deployed, Mr. military expert?

It's not surprising how easily lying comes to you of the right, though. Your whole philosophy is predicated on a lie. The lie of who you want people to believe you are and who you really are.

Once again you remain intentionally obtuse to the whole point, joe -

THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN IN BENGHAZI IN THE FIRST PLACE.

There - clear enough for you?

It's called incompetence and irresponsibility.

Still waiting for your answers -

1) Why did the Obama White House lie about it?

2) Where was Obama for 6 hours that evening while Americans were dying, and what did he do about it?

3) Why is the Obama White house STILL stonewalling Congress and lying about it, even after His Incompetence-in-Chief has been safety returned to power?

Are you at all capable of an honest, straight answer instead of Axelrod/Jarrett/DNC/mediamatte rs proaganda? Just this once?

Not in the least interested in playing your low rent, foxworld word games.

1- Nobody is lying except you, unless you have some proof of something.

2- Obama was where he was and obviously where he was supposed to be. Why do you clowns always persist in your alternate universe theories that everything that happens could have been prevented or done better if executed by the left?

3- Again, what proof of lying do you have. Other than your idiotic, compulsive right wing brain disease.

Please, bring some straight independent answers. Something a bit more informed than your Doocy, Hannity, Rubin, Ailes talking point jive.

And as far as incompetence and irresponsibility are concerned, the current House majority and eight years of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld have already defined those terms.

Remember: 2 embassy/consulate attacks during Obama administration. 4 Americans dead. You're outraged.

Remember: Over 12 attacks during Bush admin. More than 35 Americans killed. Your outrage, where was it?

And why can't I find any right wing news items screaming headlines about lying and incompetence and irresponsibility for the deaths of 3,000 Americans on 9/11?

You guys are jokes.

Well, now joe - forgive me. I may have assumed you knew what you were talking about. That was unfair of me.

Which parts exactly of the Benghazi episode are you unfamiliar with, and disbelieve -

1) That Americans were posted to Benghazi with inadequate security to defend them against attack?

2) That the US had advance intel from credible sources warning of potential attacks on US personnel and facilities in Libya by Al Qaeda affiliates?

2) That the Obama Administration denied requests for increased security measures at Libyan missions?

3) That Washington, up to and including Obama, was advised of the attacks on the consulate in Benghazi almost immediately, between 3:30 and 5 pm?

4) That Obama, after being advised of the attacks, did nothing, ordered nothing, and went incommunicado at parts unknown for 6 hours while 4 Americans were murdered?

5) That US intel and defense knew immediately the attacks were not spontaneous randon mob actions, but planned and organized attacks utilizing heavy weapons and indirect fire?

6) That Susan Rice and other White House officials nevertheless went on the Sunday talk show circuit and put out a totally false story - that they knew to be false - blaming the attacks on a spontaneous mob action sparked by some video?

7) That the White house continued to promote and defend this wholly false narrative, lying to the American People and the Congress for weeks afterwards?

8) That the White House stonewalled proper Congressional investigative efforts, and continues to do so, by denying access to copies of relevant communications and documents that would make plain the Administration's actions and policy directives before, during, and after the attack?

Please specify exactly which of these points you're unclear about, and I would LOVE to help clear things up for you by posting cites to the relevant sources and Congressional testimony that establishes who has been LYING anbout what, and when.

And where exactly was that joe? Because nobody in his Administrations says thay know, and nobody in his Administration says they heard from him during those 6 crucial hours while Americans were being murdered, and the Obama administration did NOTHING.

Glad to hear YOU hold the key to that mystery, joe - Congress has been trying mightily to find this out for some time now, and they've gotten nowhere.

So - do tell, joe - where eactly was Obama for those 6 hours - and what exactly did he direct be done?

Do get hold of yourself, joe - we're talking about a specific incident, and the circumstances that led up to it, and the actions out Government took before, during, and after.

You seem quite deeply convinced of your Fox media machine intel, there, Teddy. I wouldn't get too excited though, if I were you. We keep seeing how your crazed right wing heroes create these alternate universe explanations that just don't seem to pan out when observed in the harsh light of REALITY.

Your nothing more than a dull version of Hannity. I'm totally bored with you ugly people. To you guys the Obama administration is behind everything wrong in your tiny mean-spirited little universe.

Most all rational people in this country, yea, in the world, don't live in the narrow confines of your far-right nut land. We all know the world is dangerous and stuff happens. Especially when that particular part of the world has been torched and set upon by Republicans in their lust for oil profits and their incompetent revenge for 9/11.

You guys are just seething over Obama's successes and re-election and I'm guessing this must be tying you and the rest of your un-American pals up in real knots:

" President Shimon Peres plans to give President Obama a special award at a state dinner next month when Mr. Obama is expected to visit Israel. Mr. Obama would be the first sitting American president to receive the award, Israel’s Presidential Medal of Distinction. Previous recipients include Henry A. Kissinger and the conductor Zubin Mehta.“Barack Obama is a true friend of the State of Israel, and has been since the beginning of his public life,” Mr. Peres said in a statement."

All the sideshow Republican antics on the Benghazi attacks along with the Hagel and Brennan confirmation hearings are merely a sad little attempt to steer the public's attention away from the Republican sequestration and the effects on the economy.

All those righty's screaming for cuts is about to tank our already fragile economy.

I can't stand the corruption of Republicans nor Democrats.

In Benghazi... Our corrupt government was running guns to Al Qaeda and other rebels that aren't exactly press-friendly.

When the people getting killed by those weapons revolted and stormed the Consulate... our corrupt "leaders" decided that it would be best to (stand down and) let them all die... than have the truth come out.

Then, predictably they made up a ridiculous excuse (an old movie that no one has seen) that the moron masses lapped up.

As usual, its not complicated if you're willing to face uncomfortable truths.

Indians Taking over IT jobs

I am an Indian(American Citizen) IT professional. I am looking for job and being discriminated by Indians who are on VISA's or Green Card. Trust me, there are millions small recruiting companies working in USA.

I see them having upper hand right now. In my case they approach me like 'Hey, I am Indian you are Indian hehehehehe. And after talking to me they realize that I am a us citizen and have totally different views about everything. Bam! I am not qualified to get a job or if i am working with them they will try everything to get me fired.

I hope I get a Job soon where i do not have this scenario. Which is lot to ask, since they are all over...We need some change ' A Miracle'.

And the right just keeps gettin stupider:

Last week, the Kansas House Education Committee introduced a bill that mandates teachers question the scientific basis of global warming, becoming the latest state to take up one of American Legislative Exchange Council’s “model bills” aiming to misrepresent climate change in schools.

Kansas would join Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Oklahoma as the fifth state to cast climate change as a “controversial” topic. But climate change is only controversial in political and polluter circles, not the scientific community.

97 percent of climate scientists actively publishing in the field agree climate change is human-caused.

As National Center for Science Education executive director Eugenie C. Scott explained,“The only effects of enacting such a misguided bill would be to discourage responsible teachers from presenting climate science accurately and to encourage irresponsible teachers to misrepresent it as controversial.”

I'm sorry that uncomfortable truths conflict with your worship of the state.

If you can defend the government standing down while Americans are being killed... you'll defend anything they do.

So worship away, as they kill innocents and let their own get killed... how noble.
