As long as you have people that believe it is more important to be Republican or Democrat than an American, these things will continue to go on and America as a country will continue to suffer.
    A bit foot loose and fancy free with the facts.... The Dems cried foul in Texas when they attempted to redistrict mid-decade. That is not done. Yes, everyone gerrymanders (the appropriateness of this is another discussion, but this has been a part of the political fabric for centuries) after the census, but the Texas legislature trying to do so mid-decade was a foul.

    Republicans raising money off Benghazi effort

    On a new fundraising page, the committee asks for donations to keep up the fight, declaring it a “coverup” and using pictures of President Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.
    The page implores supporters to “demand answers.”
    Pretty rich to see a liberal referring to the deaths of four State Department officials in Benghazi as "tragic deaths" when all they've done the past 6 months is act like nothing happened, it's no big deal, nobody is at fault, just some collateral damage, no need to look behind that curtain. Now, since Republicans may be raising money off the mendacity of a President who wouldn't know the truth if his caddy handed it to him and the rest of the administration liars, you now want to talk about "tragic deaths".

    Pathetic.

    Both President Obama and SOS Hillary Clinton were at Dover and spoke when the four came home. So you are wrong when you say they didn't care.

    That is something you liberal don't want is "ANSWERS" you just want this Obama administrations incompetence, and coverup, to go away.

    I hope thy raise a pile of money to get to the truth and expose this Obama administration for what it is.. A corrupt president that should be impeached.

    And several of the surviving family members have complained that both President Obama and Secretary Clinton lied to their faces and have not kept their promise to them to get to the bottom of what happened.

    No one ever claimed that Obama isn't great at sashaying into a room and enjoying a good photo-op. Their actions since they jumped in front of the cameras at Dover tell a far different story, but I'm sure your heart was all a flutter when Obama spoke.

    I give them credit for wanting to see the carnage they caused by their incompetence driven by political policies.

    I try to avoid it personally, but I would expect everyone would say that, and yet, here we are, "they did worse".

    I don't think people are capable of even being honest with themselves anymore.
    People are more concerned about the D or the R than they are with what's best.

GWB had over 20 times more terrorist killings of foreign representatives in embasies than benghazi. before him other presidents would lose far more than 4 people to terrorist attacks on state department people. Yet we do not hear discussion on how to make these embassies and consulates safer. We have had no suggestions by the right on how to actually improve the safety of foreign consultes. No one is suggesting banning a consulate or ambassador from libya. No one is saying we should have a massive military presence in libya if we are going to have state department people there. no one is blaming libya for lax security or denying american troops access to their country to save the ambassador, or insiting that american military can move on foreign soil if american ambassadors are under fire. The full solution for the right in this case is to point the finger at obama and Hillary and the problem is solved.
    100% true. I find it ridiculous.

    When those in power seek to hide the truth, countervailing power is required to uncover it. Members of the victims' families are assisting the fundraising.

    Sometimes its important to hide the truth, especially when an investigation is in progress.
