    Look at the Benghazi debacle. From what I can tell there is some real, troubling issues at hand. However with the buck wild frothing at the mouth response of Fox, some on this forum, talk radio, its almost impossible to discern what is actually substantial, fact. This creates a hysterical circus which muddies the proper response, because nobody knows what is even reality anymore.
    Every post, such as this, proves us right.

    It sure did, the more important question is why? I don't know what Obama and the most influential of his group would have liked to have happened. Perhaps they are corrupt partners of wall street and only pretended to try and take out the trash, I don't know. What I do know though is that Republicans for the most part (not all) were staunch advocates of wall street. They didn't just cover up the crime, they proposed that it wasn't crime at all, just good old fashioned hard knocks business. They resisted regulation, investigations, criminal charges, everything. They created a climate in which it was almost impossible to get anything done on it. Yet it's all the Obama administration's fault? They never even got much of a chance to be corrupt and collude with wall street, the Republicans took care of that all by them self. With results like this we can't fix our Democrat problem until we fix our Republican problem.

    If you bothered to read the thread you wouldn't be asking this question.

    Not to pop your bubble, but didn't you already explain to us why?

    This is largely due to right-wing propaganda which reframes criminals as "free market businessmen".

    For the first two years, you know, when all this happened, Barry had the WH , Senate, and House.

    And during that time he managed to get passed the Obamacare bill, the one that nobody read.

    Dodd-frank, Volcker rule, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    What very little they have gotten done Republicans have obstructed, defunded, resisted, repealed, watered down, destroyed. Yet you are complaining they should have bitten off even more when even this very modest few things have been bulldozed?

    people always seam to forget that the Democrats had control of the house, senate, and WH for 2 years and all what they did in those two years have been failures. an unpopular health care bill that the majority of America doesn't want, a 800 billion stimulus that didn't work, and millions flushed down the toilet on green energy companies

    It can be racist and also not literally advocating violence. Context and whatnot.

    I see that you're OK with advocating violence, as long as it's directed at the target that you want it to be. What were you saying hypocrisy in an earlier post?
    I've very clearly indicated that I don't believe those posts were literally advocating violence, which means you are straight up lying when you say I'm ok with advocating violence.

    And really? Screams racist all the time? Check my post history, chief. You can stop projecting your blanket perception of liberals onto me. I don't fit your little profile.

    You should pay more attention to Verax. Those bills are all bills that the Republicans went out of their way to obstruct.

    Were it not for those frothy types you mentioned, the mainstream and administration would continue to sweep things quietly under the rug. This doesnt have to be a circus...it never did. There are some basic questions that should have been answered. Why wasnt the extra security that was requested offered. During the attack, why werent the people that were standing by to go in and render aid allowed to do so? Why did so many people perpetrate what we know (and what they obviously knew) was an outright lie downplaying the terror attack and creating this ridiculous blame on a video...a lie that was told over and over and over for several weeks? If the Secretary of State didnt know the answer to these questions WHY NOT? If the President didnt know the answer to these questions WHY NOT?

    And just as an added bonus...since the president apparently doesnt know about what is going on in his State Department or his Dept of Justice, does that make him an inept buffoon or does that mean his people are intentionally keeping him in the dark, and if THAT is the case...why didnt this president chop off a few heads? WHat kind of CEO sees those things going on by his PMs and allows it?

    All they had to say form day one (assuming this wasnt a coordinated coverup) is Joe Schmoe dropped the ball...didnt forward the request to the Sec State. Joe Schmoe has been fired with extreme prejudice. Mary Johnson at the CIA gave the false info about the 'protests' and she has been eliminated. But no...there has been nothing, no responsibility, no "lessons learned"...nothing. Instead...there has been what there always is...its not my fault...I didnt know...the sun was in my eyes. The dog ate my homework. Why does it matter?
