This is so ridiculous I'd like to break your comments down step by step, even though it's probably a waste of time because you seem to be so disconnected from reality.
1. "Finally, we will know all the facts about what happened in Bengahzi."
We already KNOW the facts about Benghazi, no need for dredging up what is already established, they won't find anything new.
2. "We will see how Obama, and all of his Muslim pals in the Mid-east conspired together to kill 4 Americans and run the USA out of Lybia."
No we won't because there was no conspiracy except in your mind. Also, we haven't been "run out of Lybia."
3. "The smoking gun email will put the final nail in the coffin for Obama."
Your smoking gun will turn out to be as explosive as a wet .25 cent fire cracker. This is just more belly aching by the far right to smear President Obama, nothing will come of it.
4. "We will see how Obama's failed foreign policy caused the unnecessary deaths of 4 Americans, and we will learn how smart the republicans are, and how much they truly love America."
Nope, won't happen. Even John Boehner didn't want this, he knew it was going to be an embarrassment to the GOP but caved due to the out cry of the far right.
5. "Finally after 6 years of trying the GOP will be able to impeach Obama for his evil plans to steal America from us all."
Ha ha ha, man you ARE delusional. Impeach Obama?!?! For what, delusional made up crimes that only exist in the heads of the far right fringe? Good luck with that. Oh and how has he "stolen America?" Ridiculous!
6. "God's speed fine republicans. You are truly doing to work of God." Yes, they are doing the work of "a" god, but not THE God. The Republicans worship money above all else, and that's a little incompatible with true Christianity as taught by Christ.
7. "Good bye Obama."
Well, you are a little premature on that. Hold that thought until 2016. He will be leaving office then due to term limits. You can say hello then to another Democrat though since the Republicans can only rely on the votes of a small percentage of white women and only part of the votes of white males. They have alienated most women and minorities and a big chuck of whites in America as well. You've seen your last Republican President for awhile.
8. "The first president to ever lie to the American people and send Americans to their death because of his own twisted political maneuvering."
Uh no. First, I'm sure many President's have "lied." That's what politicians do. Secondly, you must be forgetting your old pal George W. Bush who started a war that cost many American lives and Iraqi lives over the LIE that we had to attack Iraq because of the treat of their "Weapons of Mass Destruction" that as it turns out DIDN'T EXSIST. I'd say that is a clear cut example of a President who lied to the American People and sent Americans to their deaths because of his own twisted political maneuvering, wouldn't you?
Man, I feel vaguely nauseous having wasted my time responding to person that was either an Internet Troll, or a complete cretin.

So let me just get this straight.......

An attack, planned, and executed on American soil that killed 5000 people on George W Bush's watch is not W's responsibility.
But......
4 Americans die in Libya during a civilian uprising, and terrorist aided overrunning of our Embassy and 4 outher compounds, and Obama is not only responsible, he is a traitor.

How can you blame Obama yet give Bush not only a pass, but even believe that what happened after was good?

Yes it happened on Bush's watch. He didn't plan it-Osama did. Difference is Obama said he would bring the ones responsible to justice , but he didn't arrest anyone. He blamed it all on a stupid video and tried to cover his part in it. Bush loved America and his enemies feared him. They just laugh at Obama.

What the hell are you implying there????? Are you saying Obama planed the Bengahzi attacks???

So Osama Bin Laden, plans 9-11 so Bush is not at fault.
Then Bush tells us we must invade Afganistan to bring Osama to justice, and then doesn't. Then, during that failed campign, Bush, Cheney, and Rice all tell us Saddam is buying these super high quality aluminium cylinders that could only be used to make nukes with. That was not true, and all three of them knew it was not true, and they all lied to us so we could invade Iraq. And after 7 years of war in the desert Osama is not brought to justice, and thousands of Americans are killed and maimed in Bush's wars, and our economy was crushed due to more lies out of the W administration on the cost of the wars. Not to mention the "Mission Accomplished" lie.
Obama brings Osama to justice, in a mission with a total cost of one helicopter, effectively finishing the wars Bush started. Accomplishing Bush's goal for him.

So years later mopping up after Bush's Mid=east cluster fuck. Obama takes out Kaddaffi in Libya, accomplishing another goal Our oil families have had wet dream about for 40 years, and again Obama has been painted a failure by the right.
So in this war ravaged region of the world that Bush sent 4000 of our soldiers to there death and accomplished nothing, except killing Saddam, who had NOTHING to do with 9-11 and posed no threat to America, and had NO terrorists in his country and no stock-pile of WMD's.More lies out of the Bush Administration
Obama took out 2 troublesome world leaders, Osama and Kaddaffi with lazer precision, and you think the world laughs at him???
And in Obama's whole term, American interests were attacked 1 time and 4 Americans died.

As far as taking care of business with bothersome counties, Obama rocks.

Amen brother, well summed up! When you compare President Obama's accomplishments so far to Dubya's, It seems a lot like W either spent his time deliberate #%@#ing things up, or was just an incompetent stooge. It always makes me shake my head in wonder when Republicans try to tell me what a great President he was. People can't look past their own partisan sense of "my team, your team," to rationally weigh the facts.

Republican Party has a better chance of disappearing off the face of the earth the Democratic Party.
The birth rate of white people is pretty low.
And how many rich people are there?
You have a lot of ignorant working class/middle class white folks (usually Christian) voting for the GOP as of the Republicans care about them. They know nothing. It's funny. Like a flounder voting for 50 million more Great White sharks in the ocean. Take these white folks out of the picture and the GOP dies tomorrow.
I thought the priority of the GOP was "jobs" and the "economy." Is this Benghazi "investigation" a priority? "I can't sleep at nite coz I'm thinking about Benghazi!"
Americans care about Benghazi? Please. There is so much violence/death going on overseas that no American can keep track of it all. It never ends.
People who join the Foreign Service understand that the State Dept/US government can't protect them. Anything can happen at any time anywhere. Doesn't matter how much secuirity you have. Diplomats know what they're getting themselves into. It's a career with very high risk of injury or death.
But some would blame Hillary for Benghazi? Really? Stop watching FOX NEWS 24-7.

This makes two parents of men killed in Benghazi who’ve claimed that Hillary told them personally that the video was the prime mover in the attack. Tyrone Woods’s father went a step further and alleged that she vowed to have the filmmaker “arrested and prosecuted”— which, courtesy of California authorities, is what ended up happening.(See Rich Lowry’s new piece,“The Benghazi Patsy,” for background.) Why did she think it was some sort of comfort to the bereaved that the attack might have been motivated by the Mohammed movie? She went so far as to mention it in her remarks a few days afterward at the ceremony at Andrews AFB when the victims’ bodies arrived; skip to 16:30 here and watch. With Stevens’s remains right in front of her, she interrupted her praise for his service to note that “rage and violence” had been directed at American embassies “over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Even if that were true, who cares? Why would Mr. Woods or Mrs. Smith give a wet shinola about what motivated a group of degenerates to kill their kids? State’s duty to protect its diplomats doesn’t dissolve depending upon whether an attack was foreseeable — which of course it was in the case of Benghazi, given the consulate’s repeated warnings about a growing jihadi presence in the city. Her whole “3 a.m.” shtick in the 2008 campaign was that she was ready for responsibilities that Obama wasn’t prepared for, yet when a crisis finally landed in her lap here, she couldn’t move fast enough to pass the buck to some random American whose big sin was free speech that was “unhelpful” to the administration’s goals.
