    Howard Dean : Benghazi a 'laughable joke'

    ....yeah. It's friggin hilarious.


    Former Democratic National committee chairman Howard Dean considers the controversy over Benghazi a “joke” and “silly.”

    “Benghazi is a laughable joke,” Dean proclaimed twice last week in a discussion with Republican National Committee communications chairman Sean Spicer.


    “With all due respect, governor, when four Americans die serving this country, that’s not a joke, sir,” Spicer responded.


    “Oh, stop it,” Dean said.


    The former Democratic presidential candidate also said that there were “no serious questions being asked about Benghazi”...

    Yo, Howard, they've barely scratched the surface on Benghazi. The IRS, AP, Fox reporter, and Fast & Furious scandals are child's play to the truth surrounding Benghazi.

    And, yikes, even the NY Times and Wapo are on the trail. Real journalistic competitive juices are beginning to flow because even the liberal media outlets know the it's inevitable, so they might as well dig in, too.

    I agree with Dean's irritation at Spicer's false piety.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Shocking, yet another case of the NRO misrepresenting something and knowing the faithful will feed on it without asking for or seeking insight.

    just shocking . . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Socrates also laughed and happened to scoff at a jury before they sentenced him to chug hemlock.

    Re: Howard Dean : Benghazi a 'laughable joke'

    What is a joke is the democrat response to this whole thing. The president slept through the ongoing incident. People KNOWINGLY lied and gave false information about why the event occured. No one knows anything about this event. When Hillary 'testifed' the first time she did her typical shrill cry of vast right wing conspiracy dodge claiming it doesnt matter...lets not argue and bicker over who killed who. All that matters is we find out what happened so it doesnt happen again. And then the democrats and administration promptly...dropped everything. If it MATTERED, then the DEMOCRATS would be the ones banging the drums trying to figure out what went wrong so they could avoid mistakes. Instead...nothing. Silence. Avoidance.

    Re: Howard Dean : Benghazi a 'laughable joke'

    I would agree with Dean on one thing no serious questions are being asked and if they are they are quickly deflected with the help of a lame stream media.

    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?

    Howard Dean is certainly a little weird, but you know the difference between finding the controversy about Benghazi a joke and laughable, and finding the event itself a joke and laughable. Spicer knows the difference too, but he chooses to pretend he doesn't to make an easy retort, but really that retory is based on a willful misunderstanding of his opponet's position, ie a strawman. Don't pretend they are the same thing.

    How many Americans died in Bush's vanity wars? Dean is of course correct: Benghazi is just another example of GOP dishonesty.

    Wait a minute, who is lying? Wanna play back that video of Hillary talking about a video?
