Republicans are trying to change the subject

_ Republicans, Right-wing Media including Fox News
1. don't want to talk about recent good news about Obama's economy in light of GOP's persistent sabotage & boycott strategy
2. they can no longer defend Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling's racist rants
3. Fox News don't want to talk about Obamacare success stories
4. they won't admit fake scandals like IRS, Fast & Furious are dead end witch hunts

So, the default position is now to revive Benghazi

_ Same Benghazi rebels continue to attack Libyan officials and oil-viking Westerners they believe are stealing their natural resources for Cheney's business partners...
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/04/03/uk-l...
"Movement on the issue came after the federalist rebels last month managed to load oil onto a tanker at one port they control and force it out to sea in an attempt to sell the crude.

It was later boarded by U.S. commandos and returned to Libya, killing the rebels' hopes to sell oil independently."

Why would democrats want to participate when they know they are guilty of aiding and abetting the enemy?

The degenerate democrats are screwed, now they will attempt to run away.

It's an independent probe anyway. Is he retarded?
You need to f'k off Eightdick!

Bush's eight years in office, we had 13 consulate attacks, 80 killed, 8 of them Americans.

Never did you azzholes make a peep about that - and the left did not attempt to crucify the POTUS like they are doing now.

So to summarize, 13 embassy attacks, 8 Americans dead, no big deal - as long as a republican was doing it.

One embassy attack and four killed, you idiots scream conspiracy.

You realize how foolish you and your ilk look? A desperate ploy to keep Benghazi alive all because you know Clinton will whip your sorry asses in the 2016 presidential; elections should she decide to run, and you clowns have NO ONE THAT CAN BEAT HER!

Sucks being you dipshit, don't it?

I don't see beating the drum on Benghazi a good strategy for the Republicans. This only goes to show the Republicans are hampered by One-dimensional thinking.

If they had new, fresh ideas for the country those are the discussions they'd bring to the campaign.

With Benghazi all evidence shows the America electorate sees the focus on the tragedy as a desperate ploy to change the facts as presented by the Accountability Review Board, which were that the Republican neglected American personal and Embassy facilities throughout the Middle East with funding cuts in order to support the extension of the Bush tax cuts.

Any further ghost chasing in Benghazi only serves to keep that single fact alive and at the fore front of the electorate in Nov.

You are so dumb!
_ It's not a president's job to be glued to closed-circuit monitors watching every CIA compound around the world 24/7 for possible attacks.
_ We have highly trained FBI, CIA and other military agents responsible to take emergency actions as needed.
_ You don't believe Obama has a magic wand or some divine power to make bad things go away; if he did, dumb crooks like you and Fox News would be long gone...

The sad thing, Le Blunt Force Trauma, is that after the election, you will run - for the hills, lest you face the humiliation of showing yourself on Topix for other posters to ridicule. Come to think of it, you'll probably be back.

I know Hillary thinks it is all about her, but it is about principle. It is about truth. It is about any human being that could look the mother of a dead hero in the eye, and lie to their face. It is about not giving a damn about another American. Oh, what difference does it make???

Pg 2: "The Benghazi attacks also took place in a context in which the global terrorism threat as most often represented by al Qaeda (AQ) is fragmenting and increasingly devolving to local affiliates and other actors who share many of AQs aims, including violent anti-Americanism, without necessarily being organized or operated under direct AQ command and control......"

Pg 3 "For many years the State Department has been engaged in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work, with varying degrees of success. This has brought about a deep sense of the importance of husbanding resources to meet the highest priorities, laudable in the extreme in any government department. But it has also had the effect of conditioning a few State Department managers to favor restricting the use of resources as a general orientation"

"....... particularly when being present in increasingly risky areas of the world is integral to U.S. national security."

""""" ""The recommendations in this report attempt to grapple with these issues and err on the side of increased attention to prioritization and to fuller support for people and facilities engaged in working in high risk, high threat areas."

" The solution requires a more serious and sustained commitment from Congress to support State Department needs, which, in total, constitute a small percentage both of the full national budget and that spent for national security."

" One overall conclusion in this report is that Congress must do its part to meet this challenge and provide necessary resources to the State Department to address security risks and meet mission imperatives.""" """"" """"

The truth is not where Obama was but rather, the Republican Funding Cuts impeded the opportunity for the State Department to properly staff Embassies and Consulates in the Middle East with adequately trained and qualified Security operatives to save funding for the extension of the Bush tax cuts.

Those mothers and the nation is well aware that the Republicans prioritized the extension of the Bush tax cuts, and skimmed on funding to the State Department which impeded their ability to contract with sufficiently qualified and trained operatives to furnish Security for Benghazi and other Consulates and Embassies throughout the Middle East.

After 5 dead end House Committee investigation there is still no iron clad evidence of any cover up and this select committee is another attempt at a desperate poly to change or muddy the facts as laid out by the Accountability Review Board on Benghazi.

Because there aren't any Obamacare success stories, the Economy is still a mess, and those legitimate scandals aren;t going to magically go away, no matter how far you shove your head down your little ostrich hole, you lying, pig.

You signed up less than 2% of the population to your little healthcare scam, and all you had to do was kick millions of their plans, ulawfully and unilaterally delay the "undisputed law of the land" and change what the entire original point of the law supposedly was goign to be. SUCCESS!

Speaking of the economy, over the last 50 Months consecutively, we have seen 9.2 Million jobs created.

Conversely, over the last 50 Months of the Bush Administration we saw 4.5 Million jobs vanish from the economy.

I don't think some of the comments on the economy is motivated by Truth.
