    When comparing Watergate with what happened in Benghazi I would say Benghazi is worse due to people dying and the administration trying to cover things up. So much for transparency.

    Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.

    But control was not through the administration, it was an external group that views the President as an enemy. For me, the comparison is weak on many levels.

    Failure to keep a campaign promise is not a crime.

    I can't excuse his lack of a response after knowing what was going on.

    And all your faux outrage at a few deaths has nothing at all to do with your own partisan goals or dreams does it?

    Ray Charles can see your true motivations a mile way and Ray is sadly both blind and dead.

    I will have to remember your extremely high standard for the sanctity of human life in the future when you deviate from this new found pretend pacifism and endorse the killing of others or minimize the deaths of others.

    Your faux outrage is as phony as a three dollar bill.

    You think losing a high ranking official, his aide, and two Navy SEALS is something to be "faux" outraged about? I don't think you get it, that was a very bad day and we lost four good people in something that could possibly have been prevented. People have every right to be pissed.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    especially given the disgusting reports that the administration had plenty of time to take proactive or even reactive action and the fact that our ambassador was allegedly sodomized before being murdered

    The last thing I've heard on the news was that we had a marine response group an hour or less away, the entire attack took longer than it would have taken to get backup in the area.

    send in a airborne assault squad-a couple miniguns on an apache would have cleaned things up a bit
