This investigation started in the Spring when Petraeus was mentoned as someone on the Republican ticket in the Fall. So they find the girlfriend, but keep it quiet until they need it. They tried to use it against Patraeus, but he has too many principles to join the evil Democrats. They won't have any trouble with the 2nd in command, he is as dirty as they are. and he will lie for them. You got the goverment you deserve.

97 percent of Americans didn't care about Benghazi, and we should remind everyone that you told us that Romney was going to get 330 electoral votes.

So people who have seen any of your 84,000 posts know you are a liar from the get go.

<quoted text>Really? what is it you know Obama lied about?
He lied about an angry crowd that had caused the deaths of Chris Stevens fueled by seeing a dastardly movie on you tube when we all know it was a terrorist attack involving Al Qaeda from the very nest day! Well, there was no angry crowd. No movie was involved in Benghazi. YET Obama pushed this lie for WEEKS. Not good. Nope. Not good at all. Does that clear it up for you? Let me know if I can be of more help. I'll tried to dumb it down for you the best I could. OK?
I'm surprised that a person of your obvious tremendous intellect didn't know these facts. Interesting. Well. Let's see what the hearings and investigations in progress say about it. That's all we can do.

how do you know who did the attack? because of a face book posting?

the derisive snort Clinton gave when talking about the credibility of that info was aimed at fools like you, you know that don't you? She was laughing at you openly.

if you actually look at what the administration said,it was that they couldn't pin it on any one terrorist group yet. and that was and still is true.

glad to clear up your parrotingg of things you don't understand.

More common in Republican circles.

Especially Republicans running for the POTUS in 2012.
