    On the other hand, if you show Obama lies lead to deaths, with at least as much evidence as there is against Bush, I'll call him the same. No one who makes excuses for Bush lies really cares about people dying.

    Actually, that's false. My bar is still higher. But Bush supporters clearly set a much lower bar.

    Intelligence is such an oxymoron when speaking in tactical military terms....trust me, I know lol. I raided more than a few "WMD Factories" in 2003 Iraq lol.

That's more than can be said for any modern GOP president except George HW Bush.

    Bush 43 and Reagan both repeatedly demonstrated colossal incompetence in both security and intelligence. Benghazi wouldn’t even be a footnote in either of their presidencies yet it is the centerpiece of Republican "policy".
    You inability to understand the situation is probably why you wrote that. Out of the Presidents you named, which one is the sitting president now? Out of the Presidents you named, which one didn't receive flak for their policy decisions?

    Stop wrapping the people in power in a snuggie. Make them respond and stand accountable for their actions. That is all we want. Transparency, not cover up.

    Excellent point. Reinforces what I said though. It came from the command structure, not the President.

    Actually, you just need to look at embassy deaths to see Bush is way ahead of Obama.

    Bob Cesca: 13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News


    The Republican inquisition over the attacks against Americans in Benghazi has never really gone away, but it appears as though in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing and the House Oversight Committee's Benghazi hearings this week there are renewed psycho-histrionics over Benghazi.

    Lindsey Graham and Fox News Channel in particular are each crapping their cages over new allegations from an alleged whistleblower, while they continue to deal in previously debunked falsehoods about the sequence of events during and following the attacks. Fox News is predictably helming the biggest raft of hooey on the situation -- turning its attention to Hillary Clinton in an abundantly obvious early move to stymie her presidential run before it even begins.

    . . .

    January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

    June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

    October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of "Bali Bombings." No fatalities.

    February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

    May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al Qaeda terrorists storm the diplomatic compound, killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

    July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.

    December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al Qaeda terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
    There are 13 attacks total...

    The brazen arrogance is familiar isn't it? It's what we've come to expect of an elitist, egotistical, maniacal administration.
    Well the progressive argument has always been "so what" - they think they can do whatever the frack they want and if someone calls them out on their bull**** these same progressive liars and criminals just label them "radicals, extremists or terrorists."

    Their politics are tyrannical and the way they deal with dissent is arrogant, belligerent and at time psychopathic.

    Then of course they carry around this attitude in which they get offended for even being questioned.

    I've never seen such a snug and arrogant administration such as Obama's.

    I can't wait until these narcissistic clowns have been booted.

    These people are so insane it wouldn't shock me if they said; "don't question us or we will have the IRS up your ass and you will get no food." As bizarre as that sounds I wouldn't be shocked if Pelosi or Carney or even Obama said that... Well Obama has already implied that - not in those words but certainly told the US populace he was a victim of republicans and hence now can just pass bills without congressional approval.

    Also I would like to add that Obama believes voter ID laws are undemocratic yet he believes he has the right to circumvent the democratic process in congress to pass legislation..

    Obama is such a tyrannical liar and a tool.

    My inability to understand what situation? Benghazi? It's the conservative outrage vehicle of choice at the moment now that Obama care seems to be working. It will change to Susan Rice in a week or so after Republicans realize that their hypocrisy is so blatant on this that even the faithful start to notice. Then this board will fill up with rants about that.

    This is what happens when a party can no longer govern.

    In summary: Obama and Progressives are liars, criminals, radicals, extremists, terrorists, tyrannical, arrogant, belligerent, psychopathic, snug, arrogant, narcissistic.

    Sounds like you're more Bowerick Wowbagger than John Galt.
