    Surely just one important step showing the Gov didn't lie (unlike our many other prominent Washington politicians who have). The Christie haters will continue to hate, the Christie supporters will be rewarded for their steadfast support. The media will likely not say much since this denies a smoking gun and the demise of a rising star Republican. Whether or not Christie runs in 2016 probably hasn't changed - from a political standpoint the damage was done; mission accomplished.
    Yawn.

    This misleading of the people may acceptable to some, and granted, as we have grown to know this president better, it becomes less and less of any sort of surprise. But I hardly think that it is acceptable, as do many others.
    So you're view is they pretended it was a spontaneous demonstration though knowing better...because?
    Americans wouldn't re-elect a president after a terrorist attack overseas on an embassy?
    Hell in 2004 we re-elected a President after a major terrorists attack on US soil.
    We re-elected Clinton after overseas terrorist attacks. How about terrorism under other presidents?

    I guess it's a little far fetched that the President would actually run a cover up on something with so little to gain from a cover up. I guess it would be a little more plausible if there was something he had to gain from it.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Of course he wanted to protect his election chances, the same way that he wanted to protect his 'Al Qaeda is defeated' campaign meme. He was trading one false meme for another in the hopes that the electorate wouldn't look any closer, and they didn't.

    Wrong, I don't accept either.

    BUT..... A report that says that The Obama Administration had no knowledge of what is going on, then it is all of a sudden a conspiracy going on. They can't be trusted.


    So I ask you guys this. Why is your double standard > The left double standard?


    Please show one instance where a "report" from outside the White House has EVER been issued clearing the Obama administration of such things as Benghazi, the IRS corruption scandal and I will consider the above as something more than yet another ignorant, knee jerk response to the least criticism. Please demonstrate how and when the "left" has even co-operated with an investigation and I will actually reconsider my contention that all of Obamaland to be the thin skinned "my guy is perfect" hypocrites YOU are. I mean when your guy lies 40 times to buy himself a second term, then lies to cover that lie, where do any of you get off calling anyone hypocrite?

    Show me where YOU called Obama on that one?

    Only 40 times? That must be some kind of record for lowest number of lies ever. His opponent lied at least as often trying to get a first term. Which is partially why I refused to vote for either of the Obamney twins.

    So Christie exonerated Christie with most of the one million dollars coming from GOPs in New Jersey since GOPs pay more taxes.
    Cantor wait for the primaries .
