    Tell me one more time why you hate the law please.

    How do you feel about LYING GOPs who say one thing on ACA in DC and another on their website.
    The only contribution from your GOP right now, since you identify with their key lies about Obama,
    is to continue to raise the negatives and drive down voting numberrs, Nixon on steroids .

    I'm comfortable supporting positives, like today's job numbers.
    You're comfortable being Nixon on steroids, parroting non-issues as your GOP talking points instruct.
    All negatives and no action, except driving down DEM voter totals and tax breaks for the rich.

    Hmm, sometimes I do not think you read too good. Sometimes I think you are too hyper and too ready to jump on anyone and everyone that you fail to comprehend.

    In my world after 46 years either in or working for the military, doing some of the things I have done I can acknowledge that there are good lies and bad lies, good cover ups and bad cover ups. Some work and some do not. The good lies and good cover ups are done to protect national security assets, intel and operations. Bad lies and cover ups are done for personal or political gain. I assume you are bright enough to figure out which is which.

    I would appreciate it though where you think I said something bad about President Obama or attacked him. All I did was advise you or ask you to go back and read Moot's post. Number 182. If that in your opinion makes me deserving of your tirade, I have to come to a conclusion that you are no longer interested in fair and what I think is honest judgement when it comes to President Obama. I also think that being against the ACA in your opinion brands you as a Republican, no matter if you support the president more times than not. I wonder if that 20% who identify themselves as democrats and oppose the ACA know that in fact they are really Republicans. At least in your eyes.

    Anyway the wife says it is getting time for bed. That is a good thing. I always thought you were one Democrat I could talk too and have decent conversations without one of us going off on the other, oh well.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The brazen arrogance is familiar isn't it? It's what we've come to expect of an elitist, egotistical, maniacal administration.
    I don't know. US diplomats and missions have been under attack for decades. Some attacks work and others fail. These things happen all the time and there is usually information indicating danger. What do you want to do? Of course you check the circumstances and fire the irresponsible. But it is part of the business of international security take casualties.

    Re: Ex-White House Official On Benghazi: 'Dude, This Was Like Two Years Ago'

    2 years later and Republicans are still complaining about Americans killed in an embassy... something they didn't care about in any of these other incidents...

    Here are all the attacks under Reagan:

    18 April 1983 Beirut, Lebanon Islamic Jihad car bomb destroys Embassy (see April 1983 U.S. Embassy bombing) 63 (of which 17 were Americans)
    12 December 1983 Kuwait City, Kuwait al-Dawa truck bomb outside Embassy 6
    20 September 1984 Beirut, Lebanon Hezbollah car bomb outside embassy (see 1984 United States embassy annex bombing) 24
    November 1984 Bogota, Colombia Car bomb outside Embassy planted by drug cartel 1
    February 1986 Lisbon, Portugal Popular Forces of 25 April car bomb outside Embassy none
    14 May 1986 Jakarta, Indonesia Japanese Red Army mortar barrage none
    9 June 1987 Rome, Italy Japanese Red Army mortar barrage none
    17 September 1989 Bogota, Colombia RPG fired on Embassy by unknown assailant none

    and Bush:

    22 January 2002 Calcutta, India Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami gunmen attacked American cultural centre, which included public affairs office of nearby US Consulate (more details) armed assault 5 Indian security
    14 June 2002 Karachi, Pakistan al-Qaeda truck bomb detonated outside Consulate (more details) bombing 12 Pakistani civilians
    12 October 2002 Denpasar, Indonesia Consular Office bombed by Jemaah Islamiyah as part of the Bali bombings bombing none
    28 February 2003 Karachi, Pakistan Unknown gunmen attack US Consulate (more details) armed assault 2 Pakistani security
    30 June 2004 Tashkent, Uzbekistan Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan bombs US Embassy bombing none
    6 December 2004 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia al-Qaeda gunmen raid diplomatic compound armed assault 5 Saudi personnel
    4 attackers
    2 March 2006 Karachi, Pakistan Car bomb explodes outside Consulate, killing a US diplomat (more details) bombing 1 US personnel
    1 Pakistani personnel
    1 Pakistani security
    1 attacker
    12 September 2006 Damascus, Syria Gunmen raid US Embassy armed assault 1 Syrian security
    3 attackers
    12 January 2007 Athens, Greece RPG Fired at Embassy by Revolutionary Struggle bombing none
    18 March 2008 Sana'a, Yemen Mortar rounds missed US Embassy, hitting nearby school bombing 2 Yemeni civilians
    9 July 2008 Istanbul, Turkey Armed attack against Consulate (more details) armed assault 3 Turkish security
    3 attackers
    17 September 2008 Sana'a, Yemen A coordinated attack resulted in a 20-minute battle with security (more details) armed assault 6 Yemeni security
    5 Yemeni civilians
    1 US civilian
    6 attackers

    Where was their outrage then? Nowhere. The right's insistence that this particular case should bring US politicians to justice is betrayed by the fact that they've NEVER cared about attacks on US embassy personnel when a Republican is in charge. In the words of right wing slavery apologists: It was a long time ago ago. Get over it.

    The families of the slain are still complaining? About something they did not care about? In any or any "other" instance? As I just said elsewhere, anyone want to try to make sense of this gibberish? Apparently it involves Reagan and the 80's. Everyone Wang Chung tonight.

    Mornin' FM Yeah its the usual tactic of where was the outrage when a Republican was in Office. They forget the outrage was over any killed by those on the rage. Also and where was the outrage pouring in from then. From those on the left about anything and everything. Even if their party agreed with Republicans on any matters involving conflict.

    Who had the most problem with it as it sure wasn't the blue dog Democrats.

    The other issue is.....they only talk about the dead. Notice how they don't say anything about those who were wounded and how many of them there were? Where is the concern for them by the left that they would deliberately forget about others who sacrificed to, but just didn't pay the ultimate price. All those others and their families affected too.

    Not so high browed and condescending now are they????? What happened why couldn't they even come up with a thought on such why was it never thought of. For the last 2 years I have been up in this mix and not once. Have I ever heard the left even mention those wounded that survived. But they're so full of caring and concern Right? What did they think peoples outrage was Fair and Balanced. Your rage can only equal our rage or something.

    You're living in an alternate universe. You look at the reported jobs numbers and jump up and down like a teenage girl, and ignore the 800,000 who dropped out of the workforce. IOW, you're pleased with finding a piece of candy in a pile of cow flop. Good job.

    Mornin' HB. Yeah when they do that. Direct them to the Bowles Simpson Report where it stated we needed to be hitting 239k jobs every month to crawl out of this recession which really is a depression but for some reason the Left doesn't want to be so PC about that terminology.

    Yeah, get over it. They were all spawned by inflammatory videos. Since you're so willing to accept that garbage for the recent attack, surely you can accept it for the others as well. We'll just make it a bipartisan lie, and that should make you happy as a clam.
