Barack's credibility is ruined. His legacy has been destroyed. He should step down before it gets even worse and believe me, it's going to.

Obama, and Hillary have lost all credibility regarding what really happened at Benghazi. They lied about all of it, and now even Democrats are saying we need an independent investigator to look at what really happened 9-11-12. W had not lost an Ambassador to murder in 38 years before Obama sacrifaced Ambassador Stevens, and those 3 heroic Americans. Hillary can forget about running for President. We will put her under oath next time she appears before a hearing.

our FG has been killing us for DECADES... EVERY SINCE KOREA.

it is only because all we have ever elected since Lincoln has been either an R or a D as President.

if you folks cannot see that with the passing of the torch from Rep Bush to Dem Obama and NOTHING has changed except window dressing, you deserve to see our Country slide further into Progressive-induced anarchy and ruin.

will certain States attempt to separate themselves from the debacle?

lord, let us HOPE so...

think about it: Bush at least used the cover of faulty intel and the blessing of Congress. Obama did not even attempt to manufacture any thing but a LIE.

and 60 Million 'Americans' bought it!

when WE become the oppressed, who will we look to for help? Canada? the EU? China?

where will our 'huddled masses''yearning to be Free' emmigrate to? Mexico? Brazil? India?

do you hear all the whimpering and whinning out there?

that IS the sound of America, the Constitutional Republic, the Great Experiment, DYING.

Benghazi is just another of a LOOOONG line of insults our FG has thrown in our faces.

the people 'in charge' are laughing their collective arses off listening to the 'folks' bickering and in-fighting while they steal the Country.

flubs 8-year reign of terror was so bad, the distraught cons and teabeggars are looking for anything that could possibly drag President Obbama down to that level. Haven't you learned the bumper stickers don't work? Didn't you learn nominating a severely 'con' pretender wouldn't work. Haven't you learned that patriotic Americans are more frightened by the extremist teabeggars (more hated than mooslims, gays and running a close second to the religious right), that they would never consider electing one to the highest office?

Under Bush there was far more attacks. Where was the outrage?

Where was all that concern for our men and women serving in embassies and consulates across the globe when all the other attacks and killings occurred?
Like in 2002 when the US Consulate in the Karachi, Pakistan, was attacked and 10 were killed?
Or in 2004 when the US embassy in Uzbekistan was attacked and two were killed and another nine injured?
How about in 2004, when the US Consulate in Saudi Arabia was stormed and 8 lost their lives?
There is more: In 2006, armed men attacked the US Embassy in Syria and one was murdered.
Then in 2007 a grenade was thrown at the US Embassy in Athens.
In 2008, the US Embassy in Serbia was set on fire.
In 2008, bombings in the US Embassy in Yemen killed 10.

Face it, you right wingers are just sore losers, conspiracy theorists', making ridiculous claims, with no evidence.

Sorry. Clinton had a chance, and she drank it away. Obama will be the subject of the new book about the Benghazi Massacre titled, "While Obama Slept!"
Hysterical lies. She called in at 2am, does that indicate she was "drinking?" Obama doesn't sit in front of a screen 24/7/365 and watch every world event, ready to spring into action...no President does.

While Bush read to kiddies, we lost 3000 people and the WTC. You gave him a pass for that, of course. Hypocritical turd.

OMG, could your hypocrisy get any WORSE, Jimbo by Birth? LOL

Your side's done NOTHING since DAY 1 but play politics with Benghazi. You give terrorists a pass, piss on the graves of Americans, and climb all over each other trying to smear your own President and Sec'y of State.

You're literally traitors, and should be shot. ALL of you.

Funny when a troll with NO credibility lies and challenges the credibility of her betters.

We KNOW you'll try to smear Obama and Hillary, but smearing them with vicious lies about "sacrificing" our ambassador won't get it done - it'll only rebound on you and crush you in the '14 midterms.

YOU won't do anything but whine. STFU.
