    Try again. And fail less next time.

    Is that why I didn't vote for Obama twice? Because I'm supporting the administration?

    Go ahead run away from the topic, because you know you're SOL.

    Seems you didn't like the fact I'm pointing out what you didn't like, namely, you'd criticize the administration regardless of what it did.

    I've already demonstrated that your claim was false about my views of the administration. That was never an issue.

    I believe the point of the OP addresses what the administration did not do.

    Uh huh. Do you realize just how ridiculous you look? You're calling me a die hard Obama supporter despite 5 years of calling him Bush III AND not voting for him twice.

    And my point is that Hays, and implicitly others would criticize the administration regardless of what it did. The difference between Bush Haters and Obama Haters is that Bush Haters will pretend the stuff he did they like didn't happen. Obama Haters will start hating the very things they like that Obama does.

    We can't know what Obama or Bush would have done in any given circumstance. We only know what they did. What you are suggesting is unknowable.

    It apparently serves the purpose of belittling someone, though - can't miss the chance of doing that, I guess. Sheesh! :

    +1.
    This is a picture perfect encapsulation of the last decade of partisanship.

    Perspective is something that's woefully lacking. Iraq, Katrina and Torture were definite low points. The irresponsible tax cuts, unpaid new entitlements, and two wars have a lot to do with our current monetary issues. However, Bush acted against his ideologies gut reaction to create TARP which though flawed, helped to save our economy. He was strong after 9/11 when the US desperately needed a reassuring hand. He also did more for AIDS victims in Africa than any President in history. The left never mentions those.

    On the other hand; the ACA is Republican idea thought up by the Heritage foundation, pushed by the 94 Congressional Republicans, and implemented first by a Republican governor and presidential nominee. When you juxtapose the recent problems the single payer VA is having with the current success of the ACA; it may be that this market based approach with emphasis on outcome based payments is actually the best health care system.

    So why aren't the Republicans taking a victory lap? Because there's a Democrat in the Whitehouse.

    Yup, and crying partisanship over Benghazi conveniently ignores this administration's political considerations which trumped all else in this event as we now know.
