    Short of giving a direct order to do everything possible to help the personell under attack at Benghazi, what else would you have the president do?
    So it wasn't her fault after all. huh? Instead it was 'underfunding'. Perhaps she and Obama should have considered the safety of their fellow Americans before jetting around the world or wasting tax dollars on companies like Solyndra.

    The President should have done everything possible to save those men and stayed on the job until it was certain he did all he could do. He abdicated his responsibility

    There wasn't any Al Qaeda in Iraq before Bush invaded in 2003, either. In fact, was the 2003 invasion and Abu Graib that helped to swell the ranks of Al Qaeda and recruit young muslim men from all over the world to fight against the US in Iraq. So I find it hard to believe there wasn't any Al Qaeda in Iraq when Bush left office.

    I think its a valid comparison. Republicans won't be satisfied without a severed head to parade around on a pike all because of a comparatively minor incident at a consulate in Libya. Where was this zeal when their man and his people were exposed as so incompetent and negligent that we were unable to defend the nation while 19 men armed with nothing but box cutters humbled the mighty military juggernaut?

    It's a common deflection. No matter the thread topic it always comes back to whatabout Bush. It's been discussed ad nauseum over the years but if you genuinely feel the need to discuss George Bush just start a thread on the subject, not hijack other threads.

    Sorry, you guys don't get off that easy. The hypocrisy cries out for mention.

    Ah yes, who can ever forget the invasion of Abu Graib and all those idealistic young men arriving from all over the world to defend it.

    Oh another one who wants to discuss George Bush, huh? Why not start a thread? You do know this is about Benghazi, right?

    This thread is about Benghazi, not Bush. Some of us would like to stick to the topic.

    The GOP political witchhunt over Benghazi is costing taxpayers a lot more money than Solyndra ever did.

    Abraham Lincoln built and financed a railroad during the middle of the Civil War and the Congress was still passing legislation just as if nothing was happening. It was just business as usual, minus a few southern congressmen.

    I see no reason why Obama would need to sit there and wait once he was briefed and the orders were given. Any further updates could be relayed to him via modern communications and technology. Personally, I prefer a president who can do more than just one thing at a time.

    Re: McCain claims ‘massive cover-up’ on Benghazi

    The "Benghazi" incident would have legs if there was a reason for it: Instead, all we have is charges of massive coverup and conspiracy--------------But to do what ?...........................John McCain just looks like he's catering to the Fox News "believers"............
