    Is that the best you got? I already learned in this thread that I personally allowed the assassination of the ambassador. Surely you can top that? Telling me that I don't care about their deaths is so 2013.

It was not lying about it, but taking the masses for granted to the degree he thought he could just lie his way out of it, erase the tape himself.
    Yes.....if it were just a Watergate burglary alone, Nixon would have survived politically. Obstruction of justice and arrogance took him down. And Clinton would have suffered little more then embarrassment if he had not committed perjury in his attempt to cover up the Lewinsky scandal.


    The final for me was the trip to Boston, Romney land, to claim "I never said that, what I said was you can keep your plan if the insurance companies don't take it away' only to find out he knew people would be hurt at least ten months before, and long before his ad men created "If you like your plan...."
    Yes....that was arrogance at an insane level. Obama assumed that all Americans are stupid and would not remember what he was actually taped saying at least 29 times.

    It seems that Romney didn't campaign hard enough because he overestimated the intelligence of the American electorate assuming, incorrectly of course, that few would be foolish enough to elect Barrack Obama twice.

Every white house scandal benefits the party out of power. That is just a fact of political life.
    Well you have to remember that unless you can point this poster to an embassy attack you questioned the investigation and out come of from five to thirteen years ago? He won't deign to spend time with you and will spend even less time than that answering straight forward questions. He can't name an attack with the circumstances that surround it that has similarity to the Benghazi attack. Nor can he name a single embassy attack that has occurred that he thinks was not fully investigated that he questions. Much less that you should. As his logic goes, if you can't locate a thread from here or nebulous other websites dating back to that time period? To show him here at this website today? You must have stalked this guy from some other website to this one! Or something irrational and paranoid like that. As best I can make out. It get more than a little weird. So good luck with all that.

    He also could not follow through when he had Obama on the ropes after the first debate. He backed off going into the second debate.

    My disappointment is that he seems more concerned ,whether or not the republicans are gaining politically from the scandal then getting to the bottom of it. The Benghazi attack is the most recent attack on a US embassy or consulate and four Americans including our ambassador died. At this point I could care less about the other 13 attacks he mentioned. I just want to get to the bottom of it and then let the chips fall where they may.

    But Issa's not making inquires in an effort to "get to the root of the problem"; he's not even looking for truth. He's on a witch hunt and he won't stop until he and his party gets their version of Iran/Contra for a Democratic president. Look at the facts:

    - Fast and Furious: 1 under cover DEA agent killed and nothing really came of the ensuring hearing/investigation.

    - IRS non-profit/SuperPAC controversy: At least two hearings, but in the end nothing concrete found there either.

    - Benghazi attack: 4 Americans killed and the best the so-called investigators have come up with to date is "cover-up over talking points". No "they knew the attack was coming and did nothing to stop it". No "there was a secret mission involving Ambassador Stevens that went horribly wrong". No! Issa doesn't focus on those things. Instead, he's hell bent on trying to prove a cover-up over a narrative which ultimately was changed to address a terrorist attack.

    The reason Issa won't let this issue go isn't because he believes the Obama Administration decided on a specific narrative once they learned of the attack or that talking points were changed or some argument over who changed them. None of that really matters. What Issa and the Republican Party is after is something concrete to nail Hillary Clinton to the wall ahead of the 2016 presidential elections. And the longer he can keep Benghazi in the public consciousness, the more he/they believe Hillary can be discredited.

    Right. After trouncing Obama the first time he seemed to want to take the high road, be a gentleman, and all of that. The press and the left interpreted it quite differently.

    That's your interpretation bt if you are right then this wil certainly come out in the inquiry.

    - Fast and Furious: 1 under cover DEA agent killed and nothing really came of the ensuring hearing/investigation.

    - IRS non-profit/SuperPAC controversy: At least two hearings, but in the end nothing concrete found there either.

    When a federal employee pleads the fifth during an IRS investigation there is obviously a smoking gun somewhere. And the fact that Eric Holder is a party man first is why these investigations lead nowhere. All information which an inquiry needs is being held up for no good reason at all.
