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?
    To hold the Obama administration accountable you certainly don't need the frothy types and my argument is that they impede the process. Look at what has happened, they've cried wolf and banged the drums so hard and so loud about every little stupid thing about Benghazi that most don't even pay attention to it anymore. Now some actual meat of wrongdoing is being provided yet its just another day of how Obama the communist muslim socialist is out to get you as far as most are concerned.

Without the people strongly backing him that just isn't going to happen in this partisan climate.

    And just who was going to hold them accountable? The event occurred 9 months ago. You see a whole lot of media attention given to it? Democrats in congress? Concerned liberal citizens? Please. Then (as now with most of them) they have been playing "cover the tail of the donkey".

    The right should have covered it respectfully, given it attention when it deserved it, and now when some actual substance comes out they could have ramped up coverage and put the heat on when it counted. They blew their credibility months ago so its just a wash now.

    No, it's just getting started.

    How do you respond "respectfully" when the President of the United States is shown to be a damned liar?

    You have been right on point nearly the entire time. You're most likely wasting your time, but credit to you for dismissing hyper-politics and preferring rational and common sense thinking.

    Given your prior posts in this thread this statement is stated without any sarcasm whatsoever, only goes to show to the extent you have drank the Democrat Kool-aid. The Dems are not pure as the driven show when it comes to these matters; they make speeches for the benefit of their base and do attempt to pass regulations (and confiscatory taxes) on the subsection of the markets that offend them (where they cannot extort or get support from) like the Petroleum Industry. Otherwise they are in bed with those sectors who shower them with money and support. The Repubs are by comparison more honest in their behavior after all they believe in either "free" markets or believe in some form of mild corporatism.

    Oh wait ...
    Liberals aren't successful at reducing politics to entertainment. Our points are too substantive.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    The financial criminals have largely walked away unscathed.
    The middle class has seen almost no improvement in the last five years.
    We are still marching down the path of fossil fuels.

    That is the effect of right-wing propaganda, its all we can do to just try and slow down the effects.
    The President is NOT a king or dictator though he has tried his very best to do so. He has not worked with Congress for the budget and at every point where he could tried to extend the power of the State against those corporations that you hate so much. I admit that he has provided a lot of tax payer funds to corporation's that are "green" and the heads of those got to pocket that money when they closed down, but some how I do not think that you are speaking against that somehow. I consider it a good thing when a president wants to consolidate so much power to the Executive Branch are thwarted including nullifying rights that Americans have had and are done as the term goes at the dead of night.

    If you are so dead set against CEO's and other leading board members getting such large bonuses then one solution would be to strengthen stockholders rights and establish mechanisms for them to stop that. Further more to inhibit corruption of politicians a better solution would be term limit the members of the House. Most of the finical "criminals" have bipartisan support and must I remind you the banking industry was blackmailed by the Dems to lend to very high risk default people and then were allowed to engage in financial channary to avoid becoming insolvent.

    With respect to the middle class, Obama is a member of the Rich Elite and doesn't care of the middle class. His support as much of the Dems comes from those on the government dole, and illegals that think he is the way to success for their life. The fewer middle class the better is his view.

    And what is it about fossil fuels that you and the other leftists hate so much? The blue collar workers who work in it are paid very well. It contributes to the numbers of the middle class which you say you are concerned about. It takes time to transition from one type of energy to another and eventually fossil fuels will be outmoded, but until then why such vitriol to an industry that compared to say the finical sector is fairly simple and whose ceos and such are not overcompensated?

    Now that I've defended HoJ, I have to go take a shower... and I just took one an hour ago.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
