Barack Obama, our next President

The GOP's Benghazi investigation, aka the Stop Hillary 2016 campaign
I can understand why Republicans would want to target Hillary Clinton: Unless they figure out a way to destroy her, she's be a stone-cold lock to win in 2016 (assuming she decides to run). But what I can't understand is why they think Benghazi is such a big winner, especially given how badly the issue played for Mitt Romney in 2012. On the other hand, if they're determined to walk themselves off a political cliff, I'd be happy to give them a hand.

It's 3am, the phone rings at the white house, who do you want answering it? Apparently not Hillary, she will just ignore the call for help, lie about what happened, and then when ask for the truth she will respond with "what difference does it make anyway". Oh yeah, we want her answering the phone at 3am.

That commercial will bite her ass if she does run. She looks the fool, the liar, and the cold hearted witch she proved to be while she stood by those caskets of the men she left to die and tells their mother that it was a freakin video and she will find out what happened to her son.....then the mother hears nothing from the liar again!!!! That's cold....leave a man to die, lie about why, lie to the face of mother as you hug her, and leave her to her pain as you persue your political career knowing sometimes for the politics people have to die, it's just the way it is. Happened in Arkansas, happened again in Benghazi, may happen again in the future.....no sweat off her ass!

The relentless outrage of Republicans/Fox News over the Obama administration's supposed cover-up of the September 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi continued yesterday during a House Oversight Committee hearing. But despite repeated claims by Fox that there has been a government conspiracy, and repeated claims that fresh hearings will expose the whole cover up, no such conspiracy has been exposed. Because there isn't one. As Wisconsin Democrat Rep. Mark Pocan wryly remarked during yesterday's hearing, "I don’t think there’s a smoking gun today. I don’t think there’s even a lukewarm slingshot."

While previous hearings and reviews of the incident found the Obama administration's response to have been tragically incompetent, there has been no evidence of a cover up or conspiracy. And yet the selective outrage of Republicans and Fox News has continued. Apparently the Obama administration's cover up is bigger than Watergate multiplied by the Iran-Contra scandal, times 10.

As he does so well, on Wednesday night Jon Stewart highlighted the ridiculousness of Republican and Fox News hyperbole over the issue, explaining how "Republicans and Fox News are outraged at a supposed cover-up that they can’t prove or explain, and are equally outraged that no one else is outraged."

Good for them. Until the EPA answers all questions O'bama's nazi climate change propagandist should be challenged. Highly unlikely she will get 60 votes when the vote does happen. But the democrats have already said they will cheat and by pass the rules anyway. And who applauds the cheaters? democrats. O'bama is an idiot for choosing these anti-Americans like Ms. Gina.

They summoned a whistleblower to Capitol Hill, but instead they got a virtuoso storyteller.

Gregory Hicks, the No. 2 U.S. diplomat in Libya the night Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed, was to be the star witness for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the man leading the probe of the Obama administration’s handling of the attack on the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.

But despite Issa’s incautious promise that the hearing’s revelations would be “damaging” to Hillary Rodham Clinton, Hicks didn’t lay a glove on the former secretary of state Wednesday. Rather, he held lawmakers from both parties rapt as he recounted the events of that terrifying night — revealing a made-for-Hollywood plot with a slow, theatrical delivery and genuine emotion.

....Hicks, bald and with a white chin beard, said his “jaw dropped” when he heard U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice falsely claim on TV that there had been a protest at the Benghazi consulate, but he declined an invitation to challenge the veracity of the director of national intelligence, who said the statement reflected “our collective best judgment at the time.”

Hicks said he thought a flyover by U.S. jets could have deterred the second of the two attacks that night, but he declined to question the judgment of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who has said there was no way to get the fighters there in time.

Hicks was of little use to Republicans in their efforts to connect the lapses in the Benghazi response to Clinton or to the Obama White House. He said that he spoke to Clinton by phone at 2 a.m. that night and that she supported his actions. He undermined one of Issa’s claims — that Clinton had rejected an increase in security for the Libya facilities — when he agreed that the secretary of state’s name appears on all cables, even if she doesn’t write them.

Hicks did have some damning things to say about the State Department trying to block him from cooperating with Issa’s committee. But that wasn’t quite the evidence Issa had promised: that politics drove the administration’s response to Benghazi.

Instead of hearing a tale of political shenanigans, those in the audience (including Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota) heard a far better story of confusion and desperation on the ground — such as Hicks’s attempt the morning after the fighting to send a four-member Special Forces team from Tripoli to Benghazi for reinforcement. When military higher-ups rejected the request, the team leader, a lieutenant colonel,“was furious,” Hicks recounted.“He said,‘This is the first time in my career that a diplomat has more balls than somebody in the military.’”

That’s not much use to Issa, but it will be a great line in the movie.

being born is a pre-existing condition. Is that why the democrats put abortion 'care' in the bill?
