    First time I've seen those quotes. Thanks for that.

    They seemingly have no plan to get real definite answers. It is like they are just on a witch hunt to make politicians look bad. They have NO regard for the lives lost and it is sickening.

    Get REAL answers or shut the hell up already.
    Your'e right, Obama and the Democrats have NO REGARD for the lives lost and its sickening.

    Hi Maggie

    Type into Google " Democrats who believed Saddam had WMD " and you'll find a list of Democrats stating Saddam had WMD.

    More over, one of the Senators who managed to track down a consulate survivor found that he was checked into the hospital under an alias. He had to find then man through his parents.

    How can anyone defend this administration?
    I think I will sit and wait to see what comes out of this before jumping on the bandwagon to crucify or to jump to immediate defense. I have seen so many times one party or the other try to take something and turn it into another Watergate when it wasn't. But I will say this, when something happens, an event or what ever that is wrong or looks wrong, admitting to it right off the bat may cause some embarrassment and short term political effects which are soon forgotten. But trying to cover something up, the cover up is always ten to one hundred worse and will continue to shadow whoever tried to cover up whatever. It also can cause the American people to lose faith in the cover upper.


    I suppose I want to make certain there is something there, there.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Good golly, well that just proves everything!

    The decision to go into Iraq was on false, made-up premises. The evidence is all there and not difficult to find out. You can choose to bury your head in the sand or seek the truth. If you choose to live off those quotes, then by golly, you chose to stay uninformed.

    What I see in the thread is false outrage and I can't help but roll my eyes when so many Republicans are up in arms about Benghazi, but choose to remain silent when it comes to Iraq. The hypocracy is just too much for me.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Whoa -- it also brings up a Snopes list saying, "All True." Here's a list from the Snopes link:

    President Clinton, Madelina Albright, Sandy Berger, Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Madeline Albright again, Bob Graham, Carl Levin again 2002, Al Gore 2002, Al Gore again 2002,Ted Kennedy 2002, Robert Byrd 2002, Jay Rockefeller 2002, Henry Waxman 2002, Sen. Hillary Clinton 2002, Kerry 2003
    Some of these were letters and all names in the signature line weren't included. snopes.com: Weapons of Mass Destruction Quotes

    I am so glad to see this. Thank you, Fenton! Good job.

    No. Fenton nailed it. See my post. Read 'em and weep.

    Of course, you only how outrage for what suits you politically as well an are silent when it comes to Benghazi, instead changing the subject and not saying one word on the actual topic....but I guess your own hypocrisy is irrelevant to your condemnation of hypocrisy.
