    Re: Democrats Back Away from Obama on Benghazi

    [QUOTE=Unitedwestand13;1061776668]What was the situation in the city of of Benghazi? Were there people in the streets.

    QUOTE]

    There sure were people on the streets, Al Qada militia. And they were armed with more than AK-47's. They had RPG's, heavy .50 Cal machineguns and mortars. Definitely not what you bring to a demonstration over a You Tube video.

    If Obama would have done his job as Cn'C like the eleven Presidents before him were responsible of doing, making sure that there was a Carrier Strike Force in the 5th Fleet AOR with 1 Nimitz class carrier with a Carrier Air Wing 70 aircraft on board, 2 cruisers, 3 destroyers and 1 attack sub along with a Amphibious Ready Group with 1 LHD, 1 LPD and 1 LSD with a Marine MEU (soc) aboard (1,800 Marines who are special operations capable) which normally has 12 CH-46 helicopters, 4 CH-53 helicopters, 4 AH1 Cobra gunships and 2 UH-1 Hueys.

    Launch a FA-18E armed with one Mk. 84 bomb that can be laser guided to the target. Launch one FA-18F to put the laser designator on the target. I can assure you everyone with in a klick or two would have gotten out of Dodge when the bomb hit the ground.

    A destroyer with it's one 5"/54 gun could have just fired a direct fire mission of one HC round with a timed fuse and exploded that round 50' or 100' above the Al Qaeda militia and those Al Qaeda who could would have DEDE.

    Then you send in the Marines to bring the alive Americans home.

    But that's how we did things over forty some yeas ago. We weren't to politically correct back then. We always believed the value of American lives trump political correctness.

    Oh my ... where to begin ...

    You say the "G" stands for your "goodness" ... in that case wouldn't the picture still hold?

    And then you say you have nothing to say about the post ... which confirms the rest of my original comment.

    So much can be revealed in so few words.

    Thanks. Short wait, eh? Who says we don't want to level the playing field - unlike some I won't mention who'd like to flatten it.

    Think it'll matter in the midterms?
    You'll know what the sense is on Capitol Hill when see what more Dems say about Benghazi between now and then.

    In 2014? When even less people care about it than they do now? Face it dude, only people who care about this are on the internet. . Most of the population wouldn't even know what it was about. Good luck linking it to every other Democrat come 2014.

    Guantanimo, for example, is. Unconstitutional surveillance is, too. Drone bombing an American citizen? That, too. Let's talk about real issues, instead of made up scandals.
    Those are different topics for a different thread. The point I'm making is that the more that comes out, the less this looks like a "made up" scandal. And it is really kind of silly to call it that at this point, with all this info coming out recently from the people that are now talking, unless you've been under a rock. It's the cover up that gets them.

    You are referring to the "low information" voter, that is so critical to democrat success. Yep, if there is a huge scandal, even an impeachable one, it doesn't matter much if the voters don't know about it. That's what democrats count on.

    That remains to be seen. Like I said you'll know depending on how they react.

    As it stands, Democrats won't reclaim the house. At most they'll gain a few seats. At worst, they'll continue the pattern of an exiting president's party losing seats. So how exactly will you measure whether "Benghazigate" had any effect? I'm dying to know.
