Pincy: TimonC346: This whole "GET OBAMA OVER BENGHAZI" thing is only marginalizing Republicans as the morons they've become. It's sad only the most devout Republicans (and those in charge) don't seem to see this scandal is hurting them more than it will ever hurt President Obama.

No, it's not sad, it's hilarious.


To me it's a little sad. There isn't a voting option for people like me anymore--and that's not really a good thing. I feel like politics at some point was choosing the lesser of two evils. Now the Republican party has just fallen into being openly evil. About everything. Always.

Obama had nothing to do with killing Bin Laden, but he is personally responsible for arranging proper security around every US property in the entire middle east.

They're squirting in their briefs because they feel like Obama unfairly targeted a crazed lunatic bigot wingnut as a scapegoat.

This hits close to home with the GOP Base, given that they're all crazed lunatic bigot wingnuts.

monoski: 4 dead Americans in Libya based on faulty intelligence = outrage

3000+ dead in Iraq based on faulty intelligence = ?


Well it's not even that bad. The "faulty" information in Benghazi was after the fact the faulty information for Iraq lead us directly to war and the death of 3000+ Americans.

I am still confused why any of this is important.

Who cares if there were uninvolved protesters present or not? That fact is a completely unimportant bit of minutia that had zero impact on the realities of the situation. I don't recall much outrage over the trivialities of previous attacks on Americans. The administration makes a tiny and unimportant mistake that has zero impact on the investigation and response - and the GOP won't let it go. Obama must be literally doing everything right if THIS is all they can come up with.

Is this anything new? It was the same with the whole birther thing, fast and furious, arugula and several others. They don't seem to realize that moderates are turning away from them and the only ones that are still supporting them are the super rich and the mouth breathing idiots that are happy to vote against their own interest because of minorities.

Crabs_Can_Polevault: The usual strategy, if you want to smear someone, is to throw all of your mud at him or her, in the hopes that some of it sticks.

The GOP variation on this strategy is apparently to keep throwing the same single clump of mud, expecting that one piece to stick sooner or later.


I honestly think this is all they have at this point. Which makes me feel much better about Obama as President; if all they have against him is the birther nonsense and this bullshiat, he must be squeaky clean.

It's sad that Stewart can do this bit and get a lot of laughs on it, as in, "wow, you know, that's a really good point, that's funny," instead of "so will his next joke be about the fact that the sky is blue, or water is wet?" It's a joke that should have fallen flat because it's so obvious.

That people like McCain and Graham can do this kind of thing with straight faces, and not be run out of town on a rail, is the best sign I can think of that we're completely farked. Politicians can call for peace one day, and total war the next, and peace on the third, and then insist that on day one, the warmongers were monsters, on day two, the pacifists were traitors, and on day three, the warmongers were truly the greatest threat, truly, and we let it go by.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: "First of all, there's an FBI investigation which is ongoing. And we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of-- of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. They came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post revolutionary Libya. And it escalated into a much more violent episode. Obviously, that's-- that's our best judgment now. We'll await the results of the investigation."


OMFG...is this what they are squirting in their briefs about??? Is this a direct quote of what she said?

If so, I am about 10x more disgusted over this whole ridiculous fiasco. McCain and Graham should EABOD on the senate floor for this waste of time and tax payer money.

I figured that the GOP would have learned the lessons from the Clinton impeachment, where Bill came out smelling like a rose and they had egg on their face, but they didn't. There's simply no modern evidence giving me reason to feel they'll ever learn from their mistakes. Even if a few of them make comments in interviews about how they need to just cool the antagonism and get to work on working with Fartbama to run the country.

Errant teenagers learn more from their screw-ups than these clowns do. It's baffling that these are grown-ass men and women in positions of power, whether in the actual government or their media.

you know there's a perfectly good reason why the CIA decided to go with the "protest" angle on the attack.
they may have put it out there to cause those responsible to either relax and think we were looking in a different direction or hope they come forward to claim responsibility and in doing so expose themselves.
it wouldn't be the first time they put out disinformation to misinform a target.

That's exactly what happened with the Whitewater investigations during the Clinton presidency. Three separate investigations found no wrongdoing by the Clintons, and the second special prosecutor they brought on board the fourth investigation after the first guy wasn't getting anywhere eventually found a "high crime or misdemeanor" that they used as a pretext for Clinton's impeachment.

They never did find the Clintons guilty of any wrongdoing with the Whitewater land deal, though $70,000,000.00+ of the taxpayers' money eventually did buy them the right to call Clinton's "the most investigated administration in U.S. History".

Isn't interesting how the have no real problem with Hillary Clinton who is actually more responsible for with the security of Benghazi.

Hmmmm, what could it be, why is it they just think those people you listed are incompetent and stupid and a leave a BLACK mark on the Obama Admin while people like Hillary Clinton are left untarnished like a WHITE sheet.

I can't put my finger on it.

Measured patience doesn't line the pockets of the war industry or make it easy to raise "defense" spending.
