It could be a turning point. Because of the four deaths, people are beginning to look at other things barry's administration has done. The non-action shines a different light on things like the murder of the american citizen overseas. That's one. others are sure to follow.
Sorry, I don't remember the man's name, but it's being brought up in discussions on how badly barry has handled situations like this, and how often, and how quickly these things have been swept under the rug.
I get the feeling some folks in congress are going to sound like frat boys coming off a three day drunk, saying things like, "Really? He did That?" and "When?" as if they never heard of it before.

Of course you'd pass, same as the other Obama defenders. But the jury is still out on this one. Obama's not likely to be blamed, now looks like Morrel may go down instead. Even H Clinton may skate. Problem for Obama is that things are accruing rapidly.
I think the only thing accruing more rapidly than Obama's troubles is interest on the national debt. AFAIC, the more trouble for Obama, the better :)

If anything good can come from this debacle, that would be it. But four Americans should not have had to die so needlessly, with not a finger lifted to help them, for the rest of America to find out what a horrible POTUS Obama has been.

Listen, Catcher, that was WAY nicer than he deserves. If I were to express my opinion of Obama in the terms I'd REALLY like to use, your room would fill with blue smoke and I'd have to report myself a dozen times over.

You're an idiot. Benghazi is it. the other is just getting people to pay attention to the left hand so they can't see what the right did. I hope the Republicans are not stupid enough to fall for it. The other scandals didn't need to come out it's just that we are getting close on Benghazi.
You telling me I'm an idiot means just a little less to me than bobin claiming I'm WIR, lisw.

I told you several weeks ago I'm not interested in talking about Benghazi. I'm pretty sure I told you why, but in case I didn't - it's for the same reason I don't talk about 9/11 with truthers.

If you can't see, based on what you've posted above, why the truther comparison is valid, it's by choice.

What's not nice is to hope for failure, or at least a downturn, of the U.S. economy, just to make Obama look bad.

Well said, Lis, especially "When people die it is never low impact."

I've said this a hundred times by now, but I'll say it again: what I want in a POTUS is a man or woman who will put what's best for the nation ABOVE his own personal or political interests. Obama has failed that test in so many ways I couldn't count them all.

Not at all, Catcher! I'm not wishing trouble for AMERICA, just for OBAMA. And it's to make him miserable, not to look bad. He's doing that part just fine on his own.

obama's killing the economy all by himself, he doesn't need our help. We've endured this "obama recovery" for almost five years... with no recovery.

I, too, hope obama's policies fail, they're not good for the USA, our economy, or our people. Limbaugh was right, and obama is proving it!

Your truther comparison is ridiculous and isn't remotely valid. There is no comparison.

This administration erred BEFORE the Benghazi attack by ignoring frantic requests for additional security which were subsequently denied or ignored. This administration did not have military plans in place or any contingency plan in place DURING the attack and this administration lied repeatedly to the American public, and the world AFTER the attack.
Before, during and after. Screw up, screw up, screw up.

There are no 911 truther congressional hearings, the Bush WH was not forced into giving up nonexistent "truther" emails unlike the request made to the Obama WH and in case you didn't know, they have only (begrudgingly) relinquished 100; holding onto an additional 25,000. We know where Bush was during the attack, we don't know where Obama was during the attack......tough question I guess, the 911 crime scenes did not remain unsecured, while the Benghazi crime scene was unsecured for 2 weeks. Post 911 we had our people on site immediately and the FBI wasn't even permitted to go to Benghazi for 18 days and by then Libyans had already taken souvenirs from the facility, trampled through it and had picnics in there. The Bush administration sent out the big dogs after the attack to speak to Americans... Bush himself, Cheney, Colin Powell etc. all from the upper tier of the administration, they didn't send out a nothing ambassador to the UN to do the Sunday morning talk show circuit yammering about a video and reciting rehearsed and severely altered talking points from an original CIA report.

The list goes on and on and on and there is no comparison with idiot truthers babbling about melting buildings and who was REALLY flying those planes and the United States Congress trying to conduct an in depth investigation with a very, very reluctant White House.

But nice try Willie....your comparison is adorable! Phoney as a thirteen dollar bill but adorable nevertheless.

Hey doofus, this president and his liberal redistribution, tax and spend us into oblivion economic plan has failed. I'd explain it to you in depth but you aren't bright enough or informed enough to have a sophisticated conversation about it.
===

When Obama was elected the first time and against my better judgement, I originally said to myself, "Self? Maybe you're wrong. Maybe this guy can fatten up this economy and get the US on track." But it wasn't to be and the more I heard from him, the more I knew he was entrenched in far left liberal hocus pocus which would get us exactly nowhere.

So you see Catcher, my original opinion of this bozo was actually correct. He wasn't up to the task sooooooo what I did was begin to wish he would do to himself what is anatomically impossible (if you catch my meaning) and lo and behold... my wish has come true!
He has screwed himself into a politically unpleasant corner and although he has screwed America along the way, I remain confident the country can unscrew itself and rebound. I don't think he can.

Now go back to the kiddie table. You aren't ready to sit with grown-ups.

Next time, try to say something instead of flinging insults.

Now THAT would be using better judgment.

.....says the poster who called someone "fatso" when he couldn't contribute anything of substance, has never displayed one iota of knowledge of the current political climate and who's big claim to fame is waving his first place ribbon to a spelling bee contest.

Here's a thought. Go grab a cup of coffee and begin your daily constitutional of persecuting, mocking and intimidating Christians. It's only 6am in California, you're already on Topix to keep abreast of what appears to be your entire social life and you're giving me instructions on judgement.

Classic!

He is up pretty early today, isn't he?
Or maybe he's been up all night trolling the boards.
Like I said to Lis, all barry's prior screw-ups are going to get a harder look, or at least, they should. But the basic fear is still there. Nobody wants to be the one to call the black man stupid. RACISM will be screamed across the land, and IF they try to hold him accountable for anything, riots may insue. This country has put itself between a rock and a hard place. More and more folks are beginning to see what a moron barry is, and are now realizing that they (we) can't do anything about it.

Edited only to make room for my reply. The comment on which my truther comparison is not based on the facts surrounding Benghazi and/or 9/11. It's based on the following:

"Benghazi is it. the other [IRS controversy] is just getting people to pay attention to the left hand so they can't see what the right did. I hope the Republicans are not stupid enough to fall for it. The other scandals didn't need to come out it's just that we are getting close on Benghazi."

The IRS scandal as a false flag operation to distract people away from Benghazi? That's the kind of crackpot stuff truthers resort to.

Benghazi relates to 9/11 only in the sense that it was a terrorist attack. Scale alone makes any further comparison useless. Politically the appropriate comparisons would be to the Beirut (30 years ago last month) and Khobar Towers attacks. IMO, after both of those tragedies partisan desire to 'get' the Commander in Chief interfered with finding out what went wrong and who/what policies were responsible.

If I was interested in playing politics with Benghazi; specifically if I was interested in mounting a partisan defense of the Administration's handling of the events, I wouldn't have mentioned 9/11 at all. I would have brought up what they DID with 9/11, that being the Iraq War. With that I could play tit for tat with you: the 'sixteen words' in the 2003 State of the Union, the Secretary of State doing a song and dance at the U.N. yammering about audio tapes, blah-blah-blah yada-yada-yada etc.-etc.-etc.

As far as the silly 'secure the crime scene' stuff, if you actually need the differences between American and foreign soil explained to you - why are you trying to talk about this?

I get up at 5:30 a.m.

I'm at the gym by 6:20 for a one-hour workout.

I shave, shower, and get to work by 8.

Thanks for your interest in how I spend my morning.

I'm willing to provide information about the rest of my day, on request.
