    It would appear that the White House was aware of this video before these attacks even began. I'm not sure what this means in the greater scheme of things. Anyone care to weigh in?
    I don't know, I think what bothered me then is the President running off to Las Vegas for a fund raiser immediately after Benghazi. This for me kind of showed he didn't care. But as for the rest, I prefer to sit, watch and listen. There is way too much that I and every poster here do not know. That is unless they were part of what was happening at the time. Each party puts it own spin one what each e-mail means or doesn't mean. That leaves the masses confused.

    Here are some very interesting results on Benghazi by the polling firms of Anderson Robbins Research (D) / Shaw & Company Research (R). Apparently most Americans think the Special Committee is a good thing, that the Obama administration lied, but also that the Republicans are only doing this for political gain, that they are not really interested in getting to the truth. Now it all makes sense, no it don’t!

    Do you approve or disapprove of Congress establishing a special committee to investigate the U.S. government’s decisions and activities surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans?
    Approve 67%
    Disapprove 28%
    (Don’t know) 4%

    In the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the Obama administration incorrectly claimed it was a spontaneous assault in response to an online video, even though the administration had intelligence reports that the attacks were connected to terrorist groups tied to al Qaeda. Do you think the Obama administration knowingly lied about the attacks to help the president during the ongoing re-election campaign, or not?
    Yes 51%
    No 39%
    (Don’t know) 11%

    Do you think Republicans in Congress who are investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks are mostly doing it to get to the truth about what happened or are they mostly doing it for political gain?
    Get to the truth 30%
    For Political gain 63%
    (Don’t know) 7%
    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.

    Oh I don't think it was about caring at all - he cares. It was about priorities... Vegas and fund raising was more important.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Sure, when fighting a 'dirty' opponent, you have to get dirty too.

    This coming from a guy whose behavior in the IRS scandal was lets say questionable ethically.

    If that's so, I'd guess the video push came from the WH as a security measure.

    That is another way to put it. It sure left a bad impression on me though.

    LOL, seriously, I think this whole thing ought to be at getting at the truth, if there is such a thing as the truth. But everything done in Washington is done in the search for votes. So I suppose your little analogy applies quite nicely.

    Im not hearing that argument from the WH. This is why an investigation is warranted.

    The email letters to the IRS and his behavior in trying to quickly shut down the investigation is very suspicious. If you want to argue he's innocent until proven guilty and he hasn't as of yet been convicted of anything. Fine. In regards to the links below, I realize Fox News (and MSNBC) are very biased networks but they can be useful in such things as the IRS and Christie scandals.

    thus far you have been unable to show any ethical lapse by cummings in that irs investigation
    unless you can offer something substantive, i can only conclude you are making **** up about any ethics violations on his part
