    And do you still believe that terrorists used the video for 'an excuse'? Where is the evidence for that??

    Yes, the opinion that is was a lie of convince is subjective. The mandate, a republican idea originally, is not as you paint it either. You should change your name to wild partisan exaggeration.

    Sept. 18: Obama Says ‘Extremists’ Used Video As ‘Excuse’

    Sept. 21: Clinton Calls It a ‘Terrorist Attack’

    Sept. 21: Clinton, speaking to reporters before a meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, calls it a “terrorist attack” for the first time. She says, “Yesterday afternoon when I briefed the Congress, I made it clear that keeping our people everywhere in the world safe is our top priority. What happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four Americans.”

    Sept. 26: ‘Let’s Be Clear, It Was a Terrorist Attack’

    Sept. 26: Carney is asked at a press briefing aboard Air Force One en route to Ohio why the president has not called the Benghazi incident a “terrorist attack.” He said, “The president — our position is, as reflected by the NCTC director, that it was a terrorist attack. It is, I think by definition, a terrorist attack when there is a prolonged assault on an embassy with weapons. … So, let’s be clear, it was a terrorist attack and it was an inexcusable attack.”

    So, at first there are questions, then on the 18th Obama says it's the tape. Then on 21st Clinton corrects him. That's 3 days. On the 26th, less than 10 days, Obama says it was a terrorist attack. I think that clearly shows it was not a long interval.
    The 21st is 10 days after the terrorist attack and the 26th over two weeks. By this time Clinton and Obama were only verifying what everyone else knew as soon as the news was out. It was indeed a very long interval, and based on lies! The Benghazi Transcripts: Top Defense officials briefed Obama on

    So the push back to after the November elections was a coincidence, and then the White House floating the idea of putting off some of the mandates until after 2016 is also a coincidence. I got a bridge for sale, buddy-the left doe sent want to take its medicine for the trainwreck law IT ALONE passed. Own it.

    The ACA is NOT living up to what was presented to the American people, and its STILL a mandate.

    Thats NOT subjective, your view of reality must be, though.

    I'm sorry, but it is not a long interval. Read the time line. It's not quite 16 days, but even 16 days would not be a long interval. As I said, Hillary was fairly quick. You are exaggerating by calling it a very long interval. It's silly hyperbole on your part.

    Sadly, you would see it different if it was a republican. But the point is, you cannot read minds. You are being wildly subjective and exaggerating to suit your biased belief system.

    You have absolutely NO standing to link me to "truthers, or birthers".... That is just inflammatory language designed to upset me, and drag me off topic...As for "showing" anything, that you have not...Anyone can pick an opinion here or there that they don't agree with, and use a broad brush to paint a picture of systemic inaccuracy, that doesn't mean that they are right...You rail against opinion pieces and their authors rather than address the points they are making, and it is weak at best...Joe, I don't care what your opinion of more conservative sources are because they are in many cases boiler plate pap, and lazy pseudo intellectualism. You don't think before you speak, and further you don't read anything you don't agree with before responding. Nothing about that approach is academic at all, and your tactic of using emoticons and jabbing thinly veiled insults to keep your opponent off the subject when your arse is getting kicked with facts is not only hackish, but reveals much about you as a person.

    You did much better when you were thoughtful some years ago, now you have devolved into really little more than arrogant insult, and invective. I hope you change back.

    It is an eternity when you are told in real time that it was a coordinated attack, and the truth was that you couldn't be bothered to do your job as CiC during a campaign, so you ignored it, and thought you could come up with the silliest of excuses for over two weeks....! The sad part is that you still to this day defend their cover up.

    You always leap where I didn't go. I did not say you were a birther or a truther. However, the American non-Thinker is not that much different. Believing that there is no middle ground between liberals and conservatives, and that one is the evil in the world, is as misguided as both of those groups. it's a lack of reasoned thought. Not conspiracy. Just not reasoned thought.

    And I care not about liberal or conservative sources. I care about accurate and reasoned sources. I do not disqualify a source for being either liberal or conservative. I don't even mind bias. I do disqualify for being inaccurate and silly. You should as well.

    I do try to be thoughtful j. But you can't answer stupid thoughtfully. Me and more reasonable conservatives have nice long conversations. Some you have even commented on how reasonable they were. To get those, you must respond in kind and not with silliness.
