if "taking them to the woodshed" means "asking someone to blame me for someone else's mistake and requesting a chat about it" then I've been wrong about that phrase for a while.

I thought the president did a good job of taking the blame instead of shirking it. He simply asked that the critics go after him, not her. I don't see how that is bad for McCain and Graham - they got the president to recognize their shenanigans on national TV bringing more wood to an already raging fire.

Subby obviously didn't watch the press conference.

He told them to shut their cake hole on Benghazzi/Rice. If they do, they were taken to the woodshed. If they don't, he will take them to the woodshed.

Subby might be premature but the woodshed is in play.

Do not question the woodshed. The woodshed is sound.

What's significant is that he explicitly called out his opponents at his very Boobies-election press conference.

I'm OK with this. Most Republicans haven't done much except accuse Obama of ruining the country since the day he got into office.

Republicans are more interested in turning their ire for the Benghazi attack on our own people than on the people who did it.

Says a lot...

Note that neither of their responses mentioned Susan Rice and instead went after the President. Looks like they got the message.

Sorry what mistake did she make actually?

"As that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that, as you know, in the wake of the revolution in Libya are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there," she told ABC.


Isn't that what happened?

Needed a little adjustment.

He should have called them out on sleeping through 9/11, the lies to get the Iraq war going, the disbanding of the Iraqi army and every single Bush fark up that they conveniently allowed to slide which were of more consequence than anything that happened in Benghazi.

If Mittens hadn't turned Benghazi into a focus of the campaign five minutes after it happened, then maybe intelligence officers and government official could have stood a chance to collect information and wait to speak when things were a little clearer. As it was... I would be surprised if the rush to address the issues had not caused contradictory information to come out.
 
2012-11-14 04:28:50 PM  
You know what's funny. So many Republicans are going "They lied! They Lied" but then when you ask them to give you the actual statements they can't. This thing is complete manufactured GOP BS..
 
2012-11-14 04:29:18 PM  
I wish the has-been shell of a once-decent man that is McCain would just STFU - about everything from now on. Every time I hear him speak I can only think "thanks a bunch for foisting that loathsome hillbilly and her spawn on America, asshole".
 
2012-11-14 04:29:35 PM  
Special prosecutor to go after Cantor and Shirtless FBI Himbo. Did their actions affect communication from Benghazi? Is the blood of four Americans on their head?
 
2012-11-14 04:30:17 PM  
"Mr. President, don't think for one minute I don't hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as commander in chief before, during and after the attack," Graham said in a statement released by his office.

So Mr. Graham is now fully admitting that Obama is completely and totally responsible for killing Bin Laden, right?

He should of asked him why weren't they so concerned about the multiple attack on embassies and consulates during Bush admin. But that would probably look petty.

This could get real interesting if Obama spends the next 4 years with the restrictor plates off. It will be wonderfully entertaining if "playing-it-safe-trying-to-get-re elected" Obama is dead and "fark-you-I-Have-political-capital" Obama is the new normal.

While I understand the meaning of your post, were there no embassy attacks between 2009 and today? It's a little disingenuous if you're just trying to say 'b-b-b-but Bush!'

Of course not. Obama does complete micromanagement of all consulates and embassies, but a mission going into a sovereign nation to get OBL, they don't tell him or ask permission. (this is what Republicans believe)

Remember the part where he said "...they got a problem with me!", are you sure you watched the video?

These people are going batshiat crazy over four Americans killed in the aftermath of the liberation of Libya from Gaddafi.That's a dictator overthrown and four American deaths. Where were they when we were losing that many per day in Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh right, they were cheering. That should tell you all you need to know about where their loyalties lie.

I am not doing b-b-b-but Bush. I am showing that the Republicans are using two sets of criteria to judge Obama and Republicans. Not saying because it happened more under Bush that makes it an ok thing.

This is purely partisan and political and this proves it.

What embassy attacks are you exactly referring to? or is this made up BS?

It is pretty gutsy to bring up Rice on the offensive like this.

The safe, non-controversial course of action would have been to just quietly not bring Rice up as potential nominee for anything. They knew that bringing her up would provide a venue for attacks regarding Benghazi, and they are are taking it head-on.

Remember, Obama didn't catch bin Laden, but he personally screwed over the Benghazi consulate.

It's hilarious to see the left defend a guy who is one story #4 about Benghazi and flailing about in his own press conference trying to redirect the nation's attention from his fark up and his staff's fark up.

Be partisan all you want, but the guy lied to YOU. If you're fine with that, great. If not, just admit your jesus isn't perfect and start examining things a little deeper.

Hmm wonder why he didn't hold Bush responsible for 9/11 or the MANY attack on US embassies and consults under Bush. Back then it was because "they hate our freedom".

you don't see the pattern?
I mean, did we ever hear any mention of investigations prior to the Benghazi attack?

image is hardly a b-b-but Bush unless we are talking about who the Republicans were or weren't willing to attempt to prosecute for incompetence.

FTFA: - On the possibility of working with Republican rival Mitt Romney

Obama said that "we haven't scheduled something yet." "I think everybody needs to catch their breath. I'm sure that Governor Romney is spending some time with his family. And my hope is, before the end of the year, though, that we have a chance to sit down and talk," the president said.


Sorry! The proper response was "who?"
