    Did you forget the 30 Republican states already? Plus the 10-12 Democratic Senators that wont be running for re-election?

    Indeed it will more than likely come as shock should the Democrats lose more States plus the Senate.

    You mean like the "Republican" states, California and Florida?

In the 46 states where Republican primaries were held, there were eight record lows and three record highs," according to the report by the Center for the Study of the American Electorate.

    The findings run counter to the common-sense notion that a close election means high turnout.

    Democratic turnout was at record lows in Alabama, at 5.3 percent of eligible voters, and 25 other states, including Maryland, at 8 percent. Presidential primaries in most states have been in place since 1972, so the national Democratic turnout was lower than in all recent cycles in which Democrats did not have a contested presidential primary.

    He won.....but that's about all they can say.
    I can agree with most of what you said. Let me add that the Tea Party had a lot to do with many Republican voters not voting. IMHO, the extremism in the party kept them from voting.

    It took no foresight whatsoever. The Ambassador had said months previous, and on several occasions, that they needed extra security. The Brits ahd pulled out and so had the Red Cross but in order to demonstrate their good will Obama and Hillary left their representatives behind to die. it is Hillary's fault it happened.

    How could the people responsible for the security in Benghazi possibly have been distracted? Is that their excuse or are you manufacturing one for them?

    My suggestion of the Worst-Tragedy-Since-911 Award would be The Iraq War.
    Build upon trumped-up data, kill 100K civilians, pillaged the Treasury on no-bid contracts, etc, etc.
    Any other suggestions welcome.
    Just my $0.02
    Of course in the Iraq War soldiers were trained and prepared to defend themselves. They stood together and fought together and their leaders supported them however they could.

    That was not the case in Benghazi. Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton left these people to die on there own. That is a real tragedy, not just for those who died but for the American people as well.

    There are those who will defend lies, corruption and incompetence no matter what level it sinks to because they belong to the same political frame of mind but there is a great deal of danger in that thinking, and we only need to read a bit of history to see where it leads.

    In an insurgent war, the enemy always has the upper hand, because only they know what, when, and where they will strike.
    We have hundreds of out posts around the world. Since we don't have enough Grunts to protect them all, we have 2 choices, or a combination of both, arm the outposts to the teeth, or draw down unnecessary deployment outposts.
    Hind sight always brings out the ones who proclaim they would have done the right thing. Even to where a self proclaimed Libertarian knows what would have been best... Leaving out the fact that tragedies wouldn't happen, if we were not there.
    The Brits and the Red Cross had no difficulty in assessing the situation and doing the right thing. Shillary couldn't.

    She got where she is because she's married to Bill. That was her only qualification, and it shows.

    Let's not forget it was Bill Clinton's incompetence in handling the FIRST WTC attack that allowed THE SAME PEOPLE to come back and kill 3,000 Americans......
