    Yeah, I just heard that but Fox was making it sound like he was somehow responsible for Libya also. An affair OMG he's like half of all the married people out there.

    Yeah. It sure wasn't a problem for Clinton, but maybe there is a different standard for Dem politicians?

    How very convenient just after the election; just after they denied intervening in a military rescue attempt in Benghazi. Smells 100% legit.

    Half the people out there aren't chief of the CIA.

    Pffft.... come on we aren't really gonna play "it's only bad if you get caught"? We get big, goofball phonies for candidates because that's what we think we want. Enough with the goody goodies.

    No, there's a different standard for the head of the CIA. I know you know that, but the opportunity to take a shot at Clinton and the Democrats was just to tempting to pass up, right?

    Good point. How many conservatives have been caught that didnt resign? Compared to liberals? Is it because conservatives typically stand for traditional values?
