    Because they were given false intelligence.
    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.

    But the GOP were the one's that started it and now they are making a massive stink about 4 American's that died needlessly when they should also be examining how the massive mistake that was Iraq happened and to hold those who perpetrated it responsible.

    But they won't.

    Sorry, but in my opinion, that is hypocrisy.

    And what they are doing with Benghazi is little more then political opportunism, IMO.

    You are of course free to disagree..but there is no changing my mind on this.

    There are problems in America that require FAR more study and action then what happened in Benghazi 1 1/2+ years ago.

    Sure, examine what happened...but get on with the other problems...they require more urgent attention.
    What happened in Benghazi cannot be changed, but America's economy can.
    Yeah, what difference does it make? That's the spirit. It can't be changed, so let's look the other way.

    LOL! That's the best. The democrats got the false intelligence, while they secretly saved the real stuff for the republicans. Poor democrats, being lead around by the republicans. Is there anything the left will not swallow from their leaders?

    Do you even read posts before you comment on them?

    Apparently not.

    I said 'sure, examine what happened'.

    Next time read it before you comment on it...just a suggestion.


    Good day.

    I wonder how much the oil and defense industry made off the death and dismemberment of our brave boys (and women) in Iraq and Afghanistan, too.

    Tres you know DEMs had to vote for war, such as Clinton, so the GOP wouldn't throw the Patriot card at them, quite the thing with the GOP to do since Reagan. Especially when that solid evidence on WMDs blew up in their face, starting the current finger-pointing .

    Taking a talking point completely out of context to make a little political hay on dead personnel huh? This new "select" committee is termed "special" by Boehner, obviously meaning the last 12 were "not special". How many "special" committees convened after the three Beirut terrorist attacks ?

    The economy is stalled, the budget is a mess, Obama is playing chicken with Russia over the Ukraine and THIS is the GOP's big issue with democrats?

    I wish the GOP had spent this much energy investigating Bush for the ridiculous war in Iraq and the 4,000+ brave American soldiers it cost. Or the many other brave soldiers that have died in Afghanistan for nothing (strategically).


    IMO, this is little more then GOP desperation. They lost on Obamacare, they seem as clueless on the economy as the Dems and they realize that since the Fed basically controls the economy AND that the Fed is in the WH's back pocket; that the Fed just has to ramp up QE before the mid-terms to artificially stimulate the economy and give the Dem's the edge.

    In other words, the Reps know that the Dems are in the driver's seat and this is all the Reps (IMO) have.

    I sincerely do not believe the GOP leaders care that much about those that died at Benghazi...because they sure did not seem to care this much about thousands of Americans dying in Iraq/Afghanistan. They just smell some political blood...and they are hungry.


    Additionally, I also feel that freaking out about those 4 that died in Benghazi while the Rep leaders allowed thousands of Americans to die overseas is hypocrisy.
    I dunno. I thought the controversy over Obama's birth certificate was funnier.

    Hey, GOP. Want to really nail Obama? You can start by pushing the truth. Obama is spying on Americans at home, and executing them without due process abroad. Bring that up, and I will gladly join you in calling for his impeachment. No more silliness, please. Attack Obama where he is really vulnerable and guilty.

It hasn't stopped them from looking like hypocrites, though, which is strange to see from such learned people who insist they know what's best for everyone.

    Greetings, Mo.
    Only half the Democrats voted for the war....whereas all of the Republican voted for it. Except for Ron Paul, I don't recall seeing any conservative pundits protest against the war or participate in any of the anti-war protests ...some of which were the largest peaceful protests in world history. Funny how that hardly made the news.

    Hello Polgara.
