    It's not the big cover up you guys suggest. Seriously.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Different issue, and the interviews have nothing to do with. The Bush administration too gave interviews with misinformation (see Judith Miller), and that didn't bother you at all. The point is, there is nothing but the same business as usual here. not the monster scandal you want. Nothing to brag about either. Certainly worthy of some criticism. But not the exaggerated excess you guys try to heap on. Why isn't the truth enough? You'd get less crap if you stuck to the actual truth.

    I do find this important: The report found no evidence of the kind of political coverup that Republicans have long alleged.
    Well, does it seem to you that this went on for much longer than it should have? People are rightly suspicious when things take forever to come to light. There were delays in testifying, obfuscations, "at this point what difference does it make" irrelevancies, etc. It was weird how after it happened an a film maker was blamed (still in jail, I believe), then evidence about a planned attack, then Candy Crowley covering for the President in a debate. Over 16 months after the fact Hillary finally states that she regrets the incidents.

    This could have been over so much earlier.

    Sure it is...Obama wanted to continue campaigning on "AQ on the run", and this was just not convenient to their narrative....So, they tried to cover up that terrorism was responsible for this during the campaign....When you think about it, Watergate was less of a breech of trust than this was...But I understand, you won't see that because of your support of Obama.

    What in the hell are you talking about here? I am talking about the news media interviews with the terrorists that carried out the attack, you know, the ones that Obama promised that he would bring to justice, but now can't seem to find, yet an American reporter has no problem finding?

    I swear....!

    It takes 16 days to admit to something they knew hours after the attack? This situation was not muddy at all, though they tried to make it so.

    It was not based on a video, it was not a protest which got out of hand. It was a terrorist attack and everyone knew it. Clinton, Obama and Susan Rice all lied. |They are serial liars and yet you will defend this. Is there no pride or character left in the Democratic party?

    Remember when demo's were having a cow over the PDB for Bush relating to terrorism, and AQ after 9.11? It is reported that Obama failed to take his PDB's the entire week before this attack at Benghazi because campaigning got in the way....Aren't double standards great?

    There doesn't seem to be any standards here at all. People who are willing to lie for their political party are certainly not uncommon and they never seem to have the depth to realize that this always comes to a bad end for everyone.

    certainly, but quite common.
