It's so fitting that nothng else matters but Benghazi right now. It is exploding all over the world to Obama's detriment. As it should. Good riddance to Obama. Socialist garbage and anti-American miscreant.

You believe Carney after he lied about Benghazi? I think Bernie Madoff wants to sell you some securities.

VAWA was unconstitutional,denied men their civil rights, didn't require any credible evidence to find a man guilty, the House bill was rejected by the Senate and thus the Senate is the one blocking the bill, not the House. I wish people would do enough research to educate themselves. Please stop reiterating the lies that are being circulated by the Radical Feminists. VAWA was/is a legislated Hate Law which constituted Violence Against Men.

I voted for Obama...

HOWEVER,

VAWA will never pass until Congress amends it to comply with Supreme Court rulings and the Commerce Clause which it violates, and in particular the ruling in _USA vs. Morrison_ and _USA vs. William Lawrence Cassidy,_ which see:
https://www.eff.org/cases/us-v-cassidy

The Electronic Freedom Foundation's amicus brief and the Court's ruling may be found and read at the above site.

The protection of all women, including women who are here from other countries, and Indian women, and all women who are at risk of violence is a worthy cause. But let's not abolish the Bill of Rights as a pretext for protecting women from violence.
