Obama looks at demands for information about Benghazi like he did demands to see his birth certificate.

Only, it is not the same. People want to know how he let our people get killed.

“i hope we can change this!”

What a waste of time the nomination process is. Hagel will do what his boss- Obama, tells him to do. Just like Ms. Rice. So why hold up the nomination?

Because without a Secretary of Defense, Obama's hands are tied. It's the strategy the right uses. Deny Obama his due as president, crash the economy and destroy American lives.

Do you really believe the right wants to see the American economy, which their buddies in corporate America rely on and give bribes- err campaign contributions to the right? The same corporate fat cats that the Democrats, including Obama, get money from. Both the Democrats and Republicans are the best government that money can buy. Don't be fooled by the state sponsored media- Fox and CNN groups, you are a iron game piece in the monopoly game called- the Americas.

P.S. Obama does need a secretary of defense to send drones to kill or put US citizens on his kill list. The kill list he keeps in his left pocket.

Didn't these Repubs hear the Speech on Tuesday. Obama has declared himself Autocrat and will do as he pleases regardless of the Constitution or the rule of law.

Dems can't put forth any valuable TRUE information so they either spew hate or play the RACE CARD. PURE BS. Playing the RACE CARD means nothing anymore. Obama has done NOTHING for the working people and he has given our tax dollars to the ones that will not work.

If Obama would stay in Washington D.C. and work with Congress like he should instead of flying all over America playing "ROCK STAR" these issues could be solved. He is the President and he has no knowledge what his missions and functions are - some one should tell him to WORK WITH CONGRESS - he has NOT GIVEN ANY PLANS but he screams that the Reps are not working with him. You can not work with some one that is NOT THERE. Obama is wanting to crash the economy.

Everyone heard it, but what Obama does not realize is he can be impeached. He would not be the first president to be removed from office. He claims he knows the constitution but now we are wondering what document he read - could not have been the constitution. He yelled over and over like a child - THEY NEED A VOTE - I waited for him to flop in the floor and kick his feet to finish his tantrum fit.

Yes, the President is speaking up a storm at the State of the Union address and "walking on water" to speak to good ol' amerikkkkkkans about this country moving forward.

On the other hand he could be (as a rock star) cutting brush on a Texas farm a la bushbaby and/or screwing up "America the Beautiful" a la Romney.

Benghazi. I will never go away. Ever. It's a huge festering, permanent, cancerous sore on the Obama legacy.
As Tiger Woods won't be so much remembered for his golf, but mostly for his stupidity with cheating so stupidly on his gorgeous wife and kids with crudballs, Obama will be remembered for his stupidity with Benghazi. And Boy, was he ever so stupid.
So, memories will persist. No matter what.
Benghazi. See. There it is again. And again. And again. This is only the beginning.
Benghazi.
