    yes, i know they wish it was as important as that, but as we have seen through state department ooopsies throughout many administrations people die from lax security and attacks all the time in foreign countries.

    If you put half as much effort into actually finding a respectable and honest candidate for your party instead of hoping blowing this way out of proportion would make the US elect one of the POS that the republican party ran during the last election you might actually help the country. Benghazi is nothing, and you are part of the problem for trying to distract the country from it's real problems with this nonsense.

    It's not my responsibility to tell the Republican Party who to nominate for the presidency.

    Romney in fact went easy on Obama in the last debate, rather than push hard into him on Benghazi. He was a gentleman in a game of scumbags.

    The best help I can offer my country is to not exclude information or hearings that might bother my ideological predisposition.

    Growth, you see, is what I seek. Not the cut-and-dry fed to me by either side controlling our system.

    As a self defined con you do send that message. When you will vote for any dishonest POS in front of you like rick Sanford that shows the republicans theft of public funds and infidelity with a argentinian hooker don't mean anything to your base. When you send messages like that you get your party running the gallery of nitwits they ran for the last presidential election. When you hope that some manufactured scandal like benghazi will overcome an incumbent with a relatively decent record when compared to the last few presidents while running a corrupt and open liar like Romney wo contradicted himself in the same sentence many times, it just shows people you are actually a big part of the problem, and you don't care about the country as much as you care about a popularity contest.

    Oh my, you really do buy the BS, don't you? Romney had nothing but benghazi. Obamacare was really romneycare. Romney was an actual direct outsourcer of jobs to foreign markets. He was a rich guy who took advantage of multiple forms of corporate welfare. He could not even hit Obama on his black church weakness because he was a mormon. They ran a terrible guy, and the worst part about it was he was actually the best guy they had. One of the two national parties with a huge selection of people to chose from could only find the **** they put into the primaries? Those guys don't even pretend to be honest and good people. Of course, you continue to support them. You do not insist on better. If they had run someone in the range of good they would have beaten Obama. Instead they ran their most corrupt morons and hoped they could badmouth an incumbent into a loss.

    You seem to think people want to cover things up because you bought the lie. We don't care because we already know what happened. 4 people in a shack in libya is not secure. We know the US thought it could get away with a pathetic consulate like that. They took the risk to take the cheapo route and get some reps in there before they were in a place where they could defend. They are not the first to do it, and they won't be the last. We know why the consulate fell, and we know the reason it was established so haphazardly. Having a trial on it at this point doesn't do much to make sure it doesn't happen again. if they want to fund the state department more, or perhaps cut back state department activities in hostile countries where we do not have the funding or support to protect our people I am all for either of those. However, a solution is not part of any of this. it is the blame game. It is pretending if we point the finger at obama and his administration and blame them this will never happen again. Well, since pointing the finger at obama doesn't actually correct the problem it will happen again.

    Bl;ame is what you seek, because growth would require a solution which is not any part of this entire benghazi BS. There is no demand for any solution that would help to make anything more secure in the future. All you want is for someone to say it is obama's fault and then you can go back to blissfully ignoring the problems again.
