    I see nothing equivalent, but feel free to provide some evidence.

    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.

    And Stewart also is simply killing his own argument by arguing the number of investigations into Benghazi.... and then bringing up Iraq. Doesn't the same rule apply? And if there was nothing found in all of those Iraq hearings then why does the left keep bringing it up? Moreover, the number of Benghazi hearings is a pointless argument to begin with given that the information that sparked the current demand for hearings was actively withheld from all those other investigations. You can't claim a thoroughness of previous investigations when the evidence is new and previously withheld. By definition those old investigations were not thorough because they didn't have all the evidence.

    Ironically, on a side note,. Stewart's favorite for President in 2016 has a long history of defending her vote to attack Iraq.
    Just won't own your (universal your) hypocrisy. You've killed any right to expect outrage by having none when we needed it most.

    It seems to be a common ploy by the white house to stonewall unpleasant things until enough time has passed that they can use the "old news" excuse. To me it makes no difference at all who lied or who wrote what talking points. My problem with the affair is that, for some reason, we had a consulate under attack and did nothing to help those being attacked. That is unconscionable and inexcusable. I don't even care whose fault it is but I understand that politicians are consumed with fault and blaming. I just blame government incompetence.

    White house staffers are consumed with protecting their reputation when doing so causes more problems in the future that if they simply came clean earlier. I also realize the committee is partisan and motivated by partisanship. Nevertheless, I approve of appointing it because nobody in the administration appears to be willing to tell the truth. It is not unreasonable for the public to be angry when the government lies to them. Makes me wonder why they aren't angry at the government every day. If they were we might be able to clean house in Washington.

You did hear of the embassy requesting additional personnel for protection which was not given. I find the meme you used in your rant to be misguided and that means either you are misguided as well or a liar.

    Sucks for people like you.

    For months to come we get to witness a steady stream of corroborating data and evidence that will define Obama's legacy and ruin Hillary's chances in 2016 .

    No amount of desperate and pathetic partisan mitigation from people like you is going to stop it.

    Yes, we were ( Conservatives ) RIGHT all along about these low lifes
    LOL....do you honestly believe that anything that has come out is going to ruin Hilary's chances? Man......that is either hopeful thinking or you are spending waaaaaaaaay too much time listening to the right-wing radio propogandists. Do you know how many times the GOP has tried to politicize Benghazi and gotten nowhere? After 15 or so congressional hearings there has been nothing.....zero......zilch......that has been brought forth that shows the FauxNews conspiracy that obviouisly you have bought into.

    BTW....I'm sure you were as outraged at GWB raising the "color" of the terrorism alerts prior to the elections. Wh-wh-wh-what? You weren't. Hmmmmmm....ok.....that explains it.....now your post makes perfect sense.
    Keep kicking this dead horse......maybe the 1856th time will get you guys somewhere.......ROTFL........

    My points are salient and with merit. Where is your outrage over the tens of thousands deaths over false intelligence? Why all of a sudden do you care?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You can't have it both ways. You can't claim people are heartless who are trying to find out the truth of the circumstances of how they died?

    And please...not everyone who smells some leaking sewage out of Obama's White House is either a right wing fanatic or a Republican. I am a leading proponent of appointing a special prosecutor and politically am as far from a US Republican as one can get without becoming as void of conscience as a US Democrat.
    They are trying to find the truth for political points. Nothing more. That is my point.

    And I am sure the Republicans of today and Fox News would have gladly turned over a blind eye because Reagan was a Republican.

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

    For me this question is simple.

    IF the version of events I have heard from right-leaning persons is even half correct, someone ****ed up and we need to know who, how, and why.

    If that version of events is NOT correct, we need to know what actually happened in order to hopefully put this to bed.

    Either way an investigation is necessary. I just hope the inquiry or whatever that's going on atm isn't overly politicized.

    Again, why do you wander off topic? Why do you not care about the lies, the cover-up, and four dead Americans?
