    Apparently not.

    I said 'sure, examine what happened'.

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


    Good day.
    Oh, no. Don't pull that crap. You down played Benghazi, just like Obama. Hey, let's move on. You went on about Iraq, as if they are the same thing. If your throw away line about examing what happened meant anything, you wouldn't be comparing it to Iraq and saying get on with it.

    It's not just that it was a horrible failure, this administration has blocked all attempts to figure out what happened, and in particular what the Hell Obama did or didn't do about it. That is a huge red flag that the left is trying to push aside.

    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.
    Don't you remember, this is the most transparent administration in history? Everything we need to see is available already. Or is it everything he will let us see is available already?

    Since when do the Dems care what the GOP says about them?

    Right...On one side we have President who invaded a nation using false intelligence provided by the CIA causing the deaths of 4000+ Americans ( more than died in 911) and on the other we have 4 Americans who died in a tiny consulate in Africa because the CIA failed to protect them from a terrorist plot. What is the common denominator and which is more of tragedy?

    and a different perspective (from the next President of the United States of America):
    As a Senator, I take oversight seriously because it is powerfully important. But Trey Gowdy gives oversight a bad name. The House GOP is on a waste-of-time-and-resources witch hunt and fundraising sideshow, shamefully grasping for any straw to make President Obama, former Secretary Clinton, or Secretary Kerry look bad. This stunt does a disservice to those who serve our country abroad, and it distracts us from issues we should be taking up on behalf of the American people.

    With millions of people still out of work and millions more working full time yet still living below the poverty line, with students drowning in debt, with roads and bridges crumbling, is this really what the House Republicans are choosing to spend their time on? Even for guys who have so few solutions to offer that they have voted 54 times to repeal Obamacare, this is a new low.

    Okay, let's clear up the false info on the left. Those on the left like to lie and act as if not finding WMD in Iraq made it wrong to invade. Of course this is wrong and you would have to be just plain stupid to fall for that. Just violating the cease fire was enough, and there were many more reasons to go in, so that is just pain BS. We knew we would lose lives, and everyone is precious.
    Of course, those in the "tiny" consulate don't matter much to the left, since it's a big f-up by Obama. Those lives don't matter so much, just minimize it, get over it, it was like 2 years ago, Dude, so let's move on so we don't find out that our POS POTUS didn't give a sh*t because he needed to look good for an election, so screw them, he's going to bed. He's got a big fundraiser in the morning and doesn't need to be bothered with people that need help right now. What does it matter, anyway?

    What an absolute jerk she is. She's an Indian, isn't she? Likes telling hard working people,"You didn't build that." Total jerk. If she's ever President, this won't be the United States anymore.

    Yes, they were given false intelligence. If you do not believe that, then you're naive at best. And, if you can remember, there was a very strong sense of urgency at the time, so there wasn't any time for Democrats to hold 56 hearings at finding the truth.
    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.
