If the taxpayer is supporting them, it is technically welfare. What is it you don't get?
They are not productive members of society earning a good wage and supporting themselves. We are.
"Prisons cost taxpayers more than $32 billion a year. Every year that an inmate spends in prison costs $22,000. The cost of a life term averages $1.5 million."
So Soldiers are on welfare? Taxpayer supported. Those on SS are on welfare? Taxpayer supported.

If you want to reduce welfare, let them out. Kind of hypocritical to keep them locked up while you complain about the number on welfare. Spread that to your Republican brethern.

Yep. And my thought is since so many on the left are clear they don't want anything to do with God the gov becomes a false god to them. See how that works out when it really hits the fan and China pulls our plug.
My thought is some years back some real dumb idiot said he was something of a savior. The Republicans being just as dumb as the original idiot kept bringing this up like it meant something. During all this time CC pretended it was "the" left and not some idiot.

Now, another idiot, probably is a surge of sarcastic brilliance, painted this picture. Now the Republican idiots hop on board and are spreading the word again.

A news agency's job is not to tell you what they believe the story is. They are there to explain what the story is.
"entertainment" non-news (Roger Ailes words not mine)
Fox "news" IS NOT NEWS, just ask Fox "news" CEO Roger Ailes
I knew you wouldn't have the answers to those questions, because obama's stenographers in the MSM have chosen to ignore those little details. Both the WH person that made the decision not to maintain or upgrade the security for the Benghazi Consulate, and the Colonel that was in charge of the security detail that was pulled from the consulate have been identified, and interviewed by Fox News. Your "news" source thought those two people weren't important enough to bother to cover.

One made the decision that left the Benghazi consulate virtually unprotected, and probably cost the Ambassador and the three other Americans their lives, as well as the loss of our consulate. The other pleaded to keep his 16 man detail in Benghazi, which may have prevented those four American deaths. Apparently, neither individual was significant enough for the MSM to bother investigating and reporting on.

Your "news" sources are the ones that are not doing their jobs. As you said, "They are there to explain what the story is." Ignoring is not explaining, it's shirking.

So does barry... maybe they'd tell him where he was and what he did during the time our four Aericans were being murdered. obama doesn't seem to know, as he's awaiting the outcome of his Excutive Branch's investigation.
BTW, why were the Ambassador's numerous request for additional security in the Benghazi region refused, including the one he made on the afternoon of the day he was murdered? Why was the security detail, that was already there, pulled in July, even though the force commander had requested that the detail was needed, and be allowed to remain?
That's history, and if you can't answer those questions, maybe you need a different news source.
On 9-11 the President of the United States was reading a book to a bunch of first graders. When the first plane hit the WTC he thought the pilot was pretty bad. Not once during the first plane hitting and the second did he take any action at all concerning the terrorist attack that claimed over 3,000 lives and cause us to get into three wars: GWOT, Afghanistan and Iraq.

He was not impeached nor did the American people turn on him. They rallied behind him because America had been attacked.

Thank you for displaying for us the typical attitude of a Republican in times like these. May we remember it come November 2014.

We KNOW what Bush was doing during the attacks. The mystery is getting Obama to remember what HE was doing during the multi hour attack on the Libyan embassy. Is that question too hard for hsi Royal Highness?

I didn't realize that Pat Tillman was in Benghazi, or is this an attempt at avoiding answering the question on your part.

There was plenty to cover the installation of Chevy Volt charging stations... in Austria. And there were still billions in unspent funds left in the embassy budget... that's why Congress, not just the House, could safely cut that budget.

From the NY Daily News:

Of course, the State Department's budget for embassy security has increased significantly, not decreased, over the past decade. But even better,the question was put directly to Charlene Lamb, the State Department's deputy assistant secretary for international programs, yesterday by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.):

"It has been suggested that budget cuts are responsible for a lack of security in Benghazi, and I'd like to ask Miss Lamb.You made this decision personally. Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which lead you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?"

"No, sir," said Lamb.

http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/the_rumble/2...

Keep trying. Eventually you'll realize tha the obama administration's incompetency and lack of leadership by barry himself, not Republicans, that was responsible for the murders of those four Americans. The administration made decisions that left them unprotected, the administration didn't rush available fast response resources to their aid, and then tried to blame some stupid video that was released months prior to the attack for their screw-us.

The Tillman case is a blatant example of how the Bush administration consistently lied to the public about events during both the wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq, often spinning situations and distorting reality in order to put the US military occupations in a better light.
The Bush administration claimed that Tillman was killed by "friendly fire" when the truth was he was murdered.
Fox News had no "stories" on any of the events.
http://www.infowars.com/articles/military/til...
Fox "News" has harped on the Benghazi incident for nothing but political talking points to slander President Obama and even their guests have pointed this out only to be cut off and shot down.(figuratively speaking)
There is plenty to come out in the hearings and the Obama administration did not and has not covered up anything to date.
Karl, Tillman and the female Soldier "rescued" in Iraq are sad, sad commentaries on both the military and its leadership in DoD. I don't really think bush knew the facts, but even if he did DoD is supposed to protect the military from this type of BS and Generals should have resigned rather than support the quest for "Heroes."
Real Heroes will come in their time and their actions are denigrated by the false boosting and make believe events.
It was bad for the military and it was bad for the Soldiers. DoD lost trust those days from the Soldiers they Command.
Don't lay it at bush's feet, it properly belongs to the prosterity of Rumsfield and perhaps some Generals.
What lays at bush's feet is this happened not once but twice. And he still did not fire Rummy.

given the fact bush was known to be doing nothing, ablosutely nothing. And yet, Democrats fell in and supported him because AMERICA was attacked.

Unless Obama was commanding the attack that killed the Ambassador there should not be a problem. Is that what you are emplying? The President killed the Ambassador?

On your idiot line of reasoning concerning welfare: I was just following YOUR logic. "If they are being supported by taxpayer dollars....." (paraphrased)
