Because it does not. It is a distraction and trash topic to keep the eyes off of Benghazi and the power struggle between the military and the CIA.

How blind do you have to be to not see that?

Maybe not, but the Republicans are sure hoping it did.

Anything to keep the nation's mind off
their recent election debacle.

I don't think it will for Americans to ignore the election much longer. The Market has plunged and ever since we settled for Obama but the public is still mostly unaware that Unemployment will rise to 13% next year as Obama begins to inflict the pain on the business community.

Elections have consequences. Obama can do anything he wants to pitiful American families for the next four years.

Dude, Benghazi is a bump in the road that sore-loser
Republicans are trying to turn into a mountain.

They totally struck out with Fast and Furious and getting
Eric Holder (completely exonerated) and the only game in
town for them is Benghazi. They have to make the
most of it while it lasts.

Only 13%?

That is a lot better than the promised 50% unemployment that Romney put on the table. Elections have consequences and one consequence will be that our economy improves; not as fast as it should, but at least in the right direction.

I hope Obama has learned his lesson to not even try to negotiate with republicans. Look at the monster created when he negotiated away all health care reforms. We got something straight from the Heritage Foundation, republican to the core. Look at how the debt keeps climbing because Obama buys into austerity + magic and the economy will improve when everyone knows you can't cut your way to prosperity.

You are still playing the D and R game. That argument is a fail argument.

Especially when you try to use that argument against a political atheist.

Really, how so? Benghazi is only a matter of importance for the Conservative Entertainment Network of Propaganda, without parading the corpses of the dead from Benghazi they have nothing else to draw a conspiracy around.

2 American employees of a British Security Firm and 2 Embassy employees were murdered in Benghazi, the two Americans were killed in the walk over of the Consulate.

The 2 Blue Mountain employees were killed in the assault of the separate facility occupied by the CIA Contractor in Benghazi.

Why would an American President be held responsible for the deaths of the Blue Mountain personnel? He's not being held responsible for the Yemen Security Guard shot in an assault on the Embassy in Yemen, who also was an employee of Blue Mountain.

In Thursday's attack, embassy security official Qassem Aqlani was on his way to work when a masked gunman on a motorcycle opened fire on him and fled the scene, officials said. The attack was near Aqlani's home in western Sanaa, while the embassy is located in the eastern part of the capital. Aqlani, who was in his 50s, had been working for the embassy for 11 years, the U.S. State Department said.

This is an 11 year employee of the U.S. State Department, and not a word about this Embassy Employee killing.

If Obama is responsible for the fall off in the market, are you crediting Obama with the Market rallying from 6500 to over 13,500 or just the last few days of market correction in fear of the Republicans allowing the nation to fall off of the fiscal cliff to save tax breaks for Million dollar earners in America?

The fact that this story only has 10 posts and not 100 Repub postings?

Its obvious. Hard to put any blame on Pres Obama for the acts of a Repub General.

If they could, they would. But the repubs cant.

No comments on high gas prices lately. If Pres Obama was to blame for prices rising, is he responsible for gas prices going down?

Obama isn't responsible for anything. Benghazi has shown that he is completely irresponsible.

Of course there is no word. The media would never allow people to know that after what happened in Libya nothing has been done to increase security at our embassies in Muslim countries. Nothing was done before the attack in spite of warnings and nothing has been done since. If the media stays silent it will all go away.

I love your term "political atheist". The whole concept that a political party or candidate speaks gospel eludes me. In over 35 years of voting I never voted for a Republican president so I am a leftwing socialist Democrat. I support immigration enforcement and this year I voted for Romney so now I am a right wing racist Republican, according to those opposed to profiling. LOL
