Uncle Joe, has been to Iowa a couple times. He's holding fund raisers all over the country. Hillary is sending her cohorts out to put a big toe in the warm political waters. She wants to see if every time we see her face we can keep from asking her about the Benghazi massacre. Sorry Not this time. If she was smart, and she isn't,6617 she would come clean about Benghazi, and go on about her business. By election time in 2016 it would be old news. But she knows she lied, and that is difficult to overcome.

Eleanor, there is a lot of folks who want Hillary to run - especially women - and I don't believe that we can "blame" Obama for that one.

The whole quote may not get onto you folks smear bumper stickers but interesting to note. I show it below for your enjoyment and comprehension (try):

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton asked the Republican Senator.“It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”

It's still comes out the same - just more words - WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE. Hillary and Obama should have provided support for our troops and sent in help instead of ignoring their requests for help. The truth will come out.

You anti-government - anti-tax wing nuts de-funded proper levels of security for embassies and consulates - THAT is why nobody takes your crocodile tears for the Benghazi victims seriously.
You assclowns will distort and lie about ANYTHING to try to score political points - it's no fkn wonder you keep losing elections.

You can believe Obama and the Dems LIES but the rest of us have enough sense to know not to fall for stupidity or to listen any more to the LIES. As you Dems called the GOP the party of NO which has turned out to be the party of KNOW. Obamacare is a disaster and so is Benghazi, IRS, NSA, Fast and Furious. Hillary had an active part in the deaths of our 4 Americans and she is still ignoring the mother of Sean and the other Seals. The truth will come out on Benghazi - the VIDEO tale has already been proven to be a LIE.

No,, she has to run and duck for cover!!!At least until the fallout over ObamaCare is over.

Then she will be back on the campaign trail talking down to all the down home black folks again. Ya'll know what I mean.

Now how are they going to get them votes for Happy Meals when the goverment is trying to outlaw Trans Fats.

In the 2014 elections we have a whole bunch of scared shizzless democrats that have to run for re-election with the weight of a failed ACA to deal with.

You voted for it; you own it. Too late to try to divert attention now.

Obama shut down the government because he would NOT NEGOTIATE on Obamacare and hold it back for the people like he did for big business but now he has no choice and he has to hold it back. He would have looked intelligent if he would have listened to the GOP but instead he showed how strong he was and now he looks stupid.

Obamacare is the law and the T-bagrepubes were blamed for the shutdown. Spin it, spin it and spin it but those are the facts.

What fact are you referring to? I remember Republicans trying to negotiate, offering proposals to keep parts of the Federal Government, and even the entire Government, operating. I remember Obama obstinately refusing to negotiate. Tell us one proposal Obama or any Damnocrat had for keeping the Government operating.
