    Obama will probably continue to do well with those who don't pay attention to what's going on in Washington.

    She was sent out to lie, which she did repeatedly. The question is who instructed her to lie the way she did.

    Any guesses, lefties?

    Lots of people on the right (Like the guy that started this thread.) are praying for something that's not going to happen.

    President Obama's approval rating has not moved and the GOP's rating is still in the toilet.

    Your opinion is noted, however as I previously stated the information was supported by CIA documents which was the best UNCLASSIFIED information they had at the time. Eventually found to be incorrect, but not a lie.

    Again, when were YOU ever about the govt talking openly about CIA ops?

    You keep avoiding this basic point, if you want full disclosure, you are talking about telling everything about secret operations.

    may be, and then maybe not. Independents are slow to react. They do not have knee jerk actions/reactions like those who post here. Their views are compiled over time, although at times they can swing wildly.I think it is more important to watch how this group more than any other views the president. After all they make up 40% of the electorate. So far none of this stuff has resonated with them. I don't think these scandals will cause more than a ripple among them. Perhaps a slight down tick.

    I tell you what might. If Obamacare when it becomes fully implements is a drag on them, the train wreck some think it will be, then you will see a huge shift. But personally, I do not think so with these scandals.
    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.

    Aw, yes, you ignored the resume and voted for the incompetent. You must be so proud. The guy that started this thread has 35 years business experience and was always judged based upon results, not rhetoric. You continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the results because to you, you are incapable of feeling the cost of the debt, cost of the unemployed, cost of the foreign relation failures. When you do feel them it will be too late. Problem then is telling you "see, I told you so" isn't enough and that too will be too late

    Again, why would the Administration send out Susan Rice with preliminary information that was absolutely false? It was an intentional attempt to mislead IMO

    CIA documents said Benghazi was the result of a Youtube video? Do you have a link to that?
