If it happened during the Bush administration, complete with the lies about the video being the reason, I'd still be pissed.
    It's only wrong to make stuff up in an attempt to discredit Obama. If Republicans went after Obama on stuff he has REALLY done (killing Americans without due process, spying on Americans, etc, etc) I would be joining them in calling for Obama's impeachment.

    I'm waiting, Republicans. When are you going to call Obama to the carpet for his gross violations of the Constitution?

    LOL. For a story that CBS news came up with? And a liar told?

    What the liar said he did had no change in the outcome of what the Obama administration did and didn't do. And it sure doesn't change the lie's they told about the event.

    My question is, when will CBS hold the Obama administration accountable for their lies? I won't hold my breath as it took them quite awhile to fire the liar Dan Rather.

    I am not going to bother going back to look it up but way back I was telling one of the FauxBots if Benghazi is real, why hasnt a real news agency ran a story, they linked to this story and repeatedly used it as evidence Benghazi was not another Fauxrage. Where are we at on that by the way? Even a sherd of evidence there was any wrongdoing yet?

    This is the same as every Republican talking point. Doesn't matter if its Joe The Plumber, "If you own a business, you didn't build that", or Benghazi liars, the truth doesn't matter. What is important is the story. What they cling to is the make believe that comforts them. They so desperately want to believe they're the good guys fighting evil Obama, the evil Democrats ruining their precious country they built. They want to believe an invisible man in the sky watches over everything and that they make him happy on a daily basis. They want to believe they are superior to everyone else.

    Enter the right wing bubble, where they're wrong about everything everyday, but that never stops them from ever once realizing they are what has ruined this country, what has destroyed the middle class. Their idiocy and false outrage as they are distracted with the latest bs they've cooked up in their own minds, while the real issues blow by without even the faintest hint of detection.

    Getting robbed by large corporations? Who cares, what about Obama! Private industry healthcare is so expensive it bankrupts anyone who gets sick? Who cares, what about Obama! Your paycheck keeps getting smaller to fatten the pockets of the ultra rich? Who cares, what about Obama!

    They may have reported it extensively but certain networks tried to down play its significance whilst others did the exact opposite. I was living in the US at the time and I remember recalling Fox news going crazy about trying to make this into something that would hurt Obamas chances at re-election. It had little to do with the attack on the embassy or even the loss of life instead it became a reason to attack Obama, his adminstration and hopefully boost Romney's chances ( as well as their own ratings). Romney himself tried to ride the wave but ended up embrassing himself in the FP debates when he brought it up.

    Wasn't their like 13 embassy attacks in the the decade before? Why was it then that this paticular attack got so much coverage from the media and politicians?

    You still haven't said what they were all trying to "distract the American public" from. Oh, well.

    You know that they cant do that,... is it not the 5th amendment or something that falls under this.. the right to not self incriminate?

    yes I have you are just not following. The GOP and FOX were attempting to distract the American people from how bad a candidate Romney was by using benghazi as a way of switching focus to the president and put him on the hot seat. At the time of Benghazi Romney was still behind in the polls and was taking a lot of heat from his infamous 49% speech and I imagine they thought this would be a great distraction. They did this without even waiting for any actual evidence or reports.
