    But go on telling everyone how it was anyone other than Republicans who politicized what happened in Benghazi.
    It's amazing anyone is actually arguing the GOP hasn't made BENGHAZI!!!! their political curse to hang on Clinton and Obama from day one. When Romney releases a statement with the word "disgraceful" before he CAN know a damn thing about what actually happened and why is really all the proof one needs. He couldn't even wait till the next morning to start making it a desperation attempt to turn around a losing campaign.

    The other problem is the 'issue' if there was ever one was limited to the initial statements about the causes of the attack, and that for some period of DAYS the Administration mischaracterized the motives of the attackers. Does anyone even today know their motives? I've never seen evidence that is conclusive. But let's say we knew their motives immediately or within a day or so, and it was NOT about a video but about something else which we're still not certain of and certainly didn't know at the time, but NOT, NOT the video!! We had many attacks on U.S. facilities abroad and pretty much no one cared why before, but OK, that's a fair issue during a bare fisted political campaign. The problem is we're now 2+ years past the campaign ending, Romney lost and yet we've had non-stop bogus allegations, rumors, accusations, and it was ALL crap. They even included the shameful accusation that the Obama admin, and the U.S. military, and the CIA, left those people to die for presumably political reasons.

    So to say after all that the GOP didn't intend from day ONE to make this political is just an exercise in living in an alternate universe.

    When challenged to put up or shut up, you said "I'm logging off the forum now and probably won't be back for a while.".
    Which was immediately followed with:

    "Would you like a little pat on the head before I go with a promise I'll be back?"

    Once more, you are resorting to dishonesty in your posts. I clearly indicated I would return eventually to respond to whatever nonsense you were going to post. I only included that because of your absurd contention that not replying within an arbitrarily set amount of time meant I was hiding.

    The fact you have no choice but to resort to posts with provably false statements shows you know how wrong you are. You're not even trying to hide the fact you were wrong, but rather now have resorted to dishonestly omitting words from a post which show the true meaning of my statements.

    When someone doesn't respond to a direct challenge and leaves, that's considered running away.
    No, it's called "having something to do besides sit on a computer".

    Perhaps you have no life, but most of us have things we have to do. It must be nice not to have a life which requires you to step away from a computer, but unfortunately, we all don't have such a luxury.

    Some of us have superior intelligence
    Yes, some of us do. Unfortunately, I'm the only one in this conversation who seems to possess it.

    and can actually review words in context
    Then why did you deliberately omit the context which showed I wasn't running away and would reply to your post when I returned?

    There's a real level of dishonesty to claim to be able to review words in context in the same post you deliberately omit context.

    But do continue calling me a liar
    I'm not calling you a liar, I'm proving your posts are full of lies. There's a difference.

    and then demanding that I apologize
    It's what someone with integrity would do when they are definitively proven to be wrong. Lying is what someone does when, after having proven to be wrong, they continue to knowingly post false statements.

    You should apologize for making your provably false statements. You haven't.

    for your lies
    I haven't lied once. Nothing Clinton said blamed anything on Republicans or "the right", while Republicans were blaming Obama before the bodies were cold. I never said I was running away. The only one who has posted lies has been you and I have proven it.

    If you think deliberately posting statements which you know to be false is bursting my ego, then you really need to take a moment away from the computer. I have proven you wrong time and again. All you're doing is boosting my ego, because I know that even you know the things you are posting are untrue.

    It's because they have no integrity. All they want to do is bleat their political party's nonsense, without having to worry about things like honesty, integrity or critical thinking. Ever since Obama came into office, I've noticed so many Republicans turn off their ability to debate intelligently. Now they are just regurgitating provably false statements.

    When Romney releases a statement with the word "disgraceful" before he CAN know a damn thing about what actually happened and why is really all the proof one needs. He couldn't even wait till the next morning to start making it a desperation attempt to turn around a losing campaign.
    Exactly.

    There's no excusing the faults which led up to the attack, nor can there be a question this was a black eye for a President who was running hard on his foreign policy experience (whether it should have been or should not have been a black eye for him can be disputed, but there's no disputing is was going to be). But when people try to absolve the Republicans of their responsibility for turning Benghazi into a political issue, and excuse their continuous attempts to exploit the deaths of Americans, then that's when I have a problem.

    So to say after all that the GOP didn't intend from day ONE to make this political is just an exercise in living in an alternate universe.
    It's what so many Republicans have chosen to do since the day Obama took office. I have no love for Democrats, but Republicans have been borderline insane for the last 6 years.

    Some people feel it was linked to September 11.
