    Well that's the thing about hypocrisy, isn't it. If "libtards" (nice) were outraged by the attacks under Bush, and defensive of the attack under Obama, that would be hypocrisy, but they weren't, were they?

    The hypocrisy, in this case, is on the part of the folks who did NOT hold hearings about the previous 10 Embassy attacks but act as if this one is the equivalent of 9/11.

    Just admit it is political and that you hate Obama and will use any circumstance to criticize him, then go forth and continue being hypocritical political opportunists.

    Carter, 88, often referred to as the most successful ex-president in American history, has earned bipartisan praise since leaving office for his work on behalf of various humanitarian causes.

    During his successful 1976 presidential campaign, Carter won over a majority of American voters with his “Trust Me” campaign slogan.

    The surveyed asked 1,000 participants who they trusted the most and was conducted by The Wagner Group for Readers Digest.

    President Obama made the list as well but came in at number 65.

    According to the list, Obama was edged out by none other than Adam Sandler, named the 64th most trusted person in America.

    No other former president made the list, though Hillary Clinton, a potential 2016 candidate, came in at number 51....snip~

    Jimmy Carter named most trusted U.S. politician in new poll

There were mistakes made with respect to every one of those attacks, we can only do our best, we cannot be perfect. It is fair to look into them, it is ridiculous to politicize them. I have no doubt that the lessons learned from the attacks under Bush led to the policies that have resulted in far fewer deaths under Obama, but it seems that Obama is held to a different and much higher standard than Bush ever was. Anyone that does not recognize that the difference is political is delusional.

    The Administration did not handle this perfectly, perhaps they handled it badly, but after all the partisan hearings and investigations, there is nothing to suggest that these good people could have been saved but for political decisions by the Administration.

    Benghazi SHOULD evoke the dedication and sacrifice of Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone S. Woods and Glen A. Doherty, not the political witch hunt which demeans their service.

    This is crass political opportunism and it disgusts me.
    Well.....I would direct you to the Fact Checkers and the Newly released ABC link and their discovery over Benghazi this morning. As I don't want to derail this thread off of the Jimmy Mac.

    But it does tell you a lot about why Republicans are outraged about Benghazi -- it's not about people dying, it's about what political party someone belongs to.

    It is instructional to compare how these SAME current Republicans viewed Embassy attacks when a member of their party was at the helm and now, it tells us that the outrage is phony and political.

    It is also instructional to look at how the opposition viewed Embassy attacks when the opposition was the Executive, because if they were outraged then, and not now, that would be evidence of political motivation with respect to the response of murder of diplomats, but there was no Democratic outrage.

    Democrats are perfectly capable of hypocrisy, but in this case, it's all GOP.

    .
    yes they were. just because you ignored it or didn't see it, doesn't mean it didn't happen
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    But this poll was not about ability as president. This was about the perception of honesty. No fan of Carter as a president, but I do think he was reasonably honest.

    I was too young to vote in '76, but did vote in '80, and on the basis that we generally vote in America, the current condition of the country at the time. Based on that, I voted for Ronald Reagan.

    Had I known that Carter made a decidedly selfless and non-political decision that would turn our economy around in glorious fashion within a couple of years of the end of his first term, I would have voted for him.

    There were a total of three hearings for ALL of the Embassy attacks under Bush, there have already been around eight hearings on Benghazi.

    You say a thing, but the facts contradict your assertion.

    I think Jimmy deserves it. But for me the most trusted president in my lifetime was Eisenhower. But I think most of you were not around during his time as president, so Jimmy is a fine pick.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
