    Yes, I do to watch you gloss and squirm. Benghazi's another bust for Issa.

    How's that Fast and Furious thingie working out for ya?

    Meanwhile, how many Americans died as a result of Bush's vanity wars and fake in intelligence? Come on, you can count. Or maybe not.

    The incident itself is not a joke. The witch hunt surrounding it, is. Once again an unsurprising attempt by the NRO to take comments out of context and manufacture false outrage at something someone else didn't say. It reminded me of this:

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Had the administration actually been invested in figuring out what went wrong and who did and/or didn't do what, there would be no "witch hunt". This administrations answer to everything is "whut? Huh? Who? Shazaam! I didn't know. Dont know. Not my fault. Golly look at the time."

    I was thinking we should have a white house petition?

    Mr. President would you tell us the names of the people who decided to claim the event was spontaneous, a riot and in response to a video instead of a calculated terrorist attack?

    And Mr. president what is your understanding as to why they made such a mistake?
    Here's another: Mr. President, do you agree with your senior advisor Dan Pfieffer that the details are irrelevant?

    And another: Mr. President, why did you yourself blame what happened on a video? Did you yourself not know the facts?

    And another: Mr. President, where were you?

    No...thats the facts...or have we missed al of those administrative inquiries that have been going on for the last 9 months? Do we have the answers to those questions Hillary said we had to learn? No...because they have done precisely **** about it, just like they have no idea about anything else that goes on in this administration. Luckily for them...the O-bots couldnt care less and will go out of their way to make excuses for them.

    I honestly don't care if he agrees with his advisors or not. I do care why he claimed it was the video when the bodies arrived home and to the families of the dead. There are lies, there are mistakes and then there is just plain pathetic.
