Given the inexplicable hard-on for the Benghazi situation the GOP has, it's no surprise how much they keep trying to fark it.

Lose a few percentage in the opinion polls, maybe, but not the election. Voter suppression and owning the voting machines is going to win it for them.

there's a reason romney didn't mention benghazi in the third debate despite being served a softball by the moderator out of the gate. it's a non-issue to everyone except those suffering from obama derangement syndrome.

That being said, Christie doesn't seem to care about policy at all, why be involved in it? Does he just like yelling at people and being in control?

Wow, four posts in four minutes. Look, guys. I get it. You're in the Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Drudge Report bubble, and you think that the Benghazi attack is all anyone is talking about. That Americans are outraged that Obama shouldered an AK-47 and personally took up arms with Al Qaeda against the US consulate.

But in reality world, nobody...NOBODY is talking about Benghazi. This line of attack will not save your prince.

keytronic: For farks sake. The Benghazi incident ranks about #50 on a list of 50 things American voters care about.


I disagree. Two brave men defied orders to save everyone still alive at the embassy and got them to the CIA compound, then fought off the attackers for 4 more house, calling for help that never came, before taking a mortar round that ended their lives. The actions by this administration is nothing short of failure to perform your duties and responsibilities as commander and chief. As one of the men's father said last night, I would rather die a hero then live as a coward. This really makes me sad and angry. I hope that you don't have any friends, relatives, or loved ones working or serving overseas, because we just told the world we won't protect our citizens.

So Osama Bin Laden didn't kill anyone on 9/11 and Reagan got all those people killed in Beirut?
Likewise, Hitler didn't kill any Jews and FDR got a bunch of people killed at Pearl Harbor.

If by "fark it" you mean "get a straight answer from the WH", then yeah, you've got a point. if that's not what you meant, you're clearly comfortable parsing the truth if it serves your political agenda. Either way, you're willing to overlook the murder of Americans if it secures four more years for your candidate.

I know you think this is a very sensible and reasonable thing to think, but consider that it's ridiculous. These are neither the first nor the last Americans who will die overseas. This is FAR from the worst intelligence failing that has ever happened, or even happened recently. For chrissakes 9/11 wasn't exactly a walk in the park, and yet this is MILES away from the response we saw.

Admit that this is an opportunist move, or lie to yourself, your choice.

The right has lived off the dumbing down of America for years and now they are raging at the fact no one cares about what happens outside the good ol' U.S. of A (Benghazi)

So let me get this straight; Subby makes a weak yet simple joke, tipped off by the "Sorry, I couldn't resist" remark, yet a bunch of posters really feel the need to either (a) get upset about it, or (b) actually force a discussion on the Benghazi situation. Fascinating.

Hmmm...let me rephrase. The death of American diplomats upsets all Americans. But most voters are not factoring in the Benghazi attack when considering their vote. They do not blame the President.

There are a number of reasons for this. We may be partly numb to American deaths overseas thanks to, I dunno, the thousands of American casualties we've seen over the past decade in wars.

Also, unlike Republicans, Americans aren't pussies. We recognize that our military and diplomatic global dominance makes us a target. And it puts a sour taste in our mouths when we see aggressive partisans use this tragedy to try to drum up political support.

I can't understand why Romney fanboys are so intent on bringing this topic up over and over again when Romney himself ran from the issue at the third debate.

Oh, Nelly on a cracker. We're engaged in two and half or three declared and undeclared wars. We're rattling sabers over most of the pacific. We d!ck with nearly every nation on the face of the earth. We have drones killing men, women, children and entire wedding parties including the groom, the bride, the flower girls and by-standers. None of that is enough for you though is it? There will never be enough military action to satisfy you. We should have teleported troops in and stomped the whole nation down, right?

I'm all for criticizing Obama, especially when the goal of that criticism is to make him a better president, but yakking like yours makes me want to bop you on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.

I understand you cannot predict the future and the intelligence failure is bad but defensible. Not sending help for 7 hours is where we really failed. The blaming the incident on the false mob action story 5 days after is where it really becomes FARK worthy.
