Can someone explain this photo to me? I've seen it alot in the last few weeks and I have no idea what it is.

Ben Gazzara, the guy all the way to the right in the pic, who starred in such mega hits as Road House alongside Patrick swinging Swayze.

Perhaps you dont understand what the word "explain" means.


it's a play on words, Benghazi = Ben Gazzara, you aren't new to FARK, do you have someone helping you?

DamnYankees: Thigvald the Big-Balled: propasaurus: Obama should do something like appoint her WH Chief of Staff. Make the Republicans go through her if they want to talk to the President.

THIS.

And Obama should take advice offered in earlier FARK threads: nominate a Republican for the position, one who would be replaced by a Democrat. Watch the Republicans tear apart one of their own in order to prevent the seat from falling into Democratic hands.

That actually would be fantastic. Like, Susan Collins or something.


It wouldn't work. There isn't a Republican left who would put service to the nation above partisan politics and accept the nomination.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Marcus Aurelius: "While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first."

Is Obama the biggest troll in America, or what?

And don't forget what happened after the GOP torpedoed Elisabeth Warren for the Consumer Protection department. She ended up on the Senate banking committee. Something tells me the GOP didn't think their cunning plan all the way through.

When have they ever?


When will Baldrick be put on a GOP ballot?

Philip Francis Queeg: It wouldn't work. There isn't a Republican left who would put service to the nation above partisan politics and accept the nomination.


To be fair, if Obama were to do that the GOP wouldn't be wrong for seeing it as a trick.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's not a scandal subby. It's a national disgrace.


Of course it's a national disgrace. A group of old white politicians attacked an innocent black woman because she did her job with the unclassified information provided to her by the CIA. The silliness of the attacks were only heightened by the Republican Right Hand of MSM, Fox News, seeking higher TV ratings and profits at the cost of the woman's career and personal standing.

I completely agree with you for once, Lt. Smegma Weasel, the Republicans are a national disgrace, many times over.

Marcus Aurelius: So the mean old administration made a claim that you didn't actually witness on TV but which you were outraged about after seeing it on the news about them not revealing the true details of an investigation in progress of a terrorist attack where the perpetrators had not yet been identified nor apprehended, and you are outraged?


"didn't witness on TV"? WTF? What an odd comment.

"not revealing the true details of an investigation in progress of a terrorist attack where the perpetrators had not yet been identified nor apprehended lied about something that had absolutely nothing to do with an investigation, and you are outraged?"

fixed that for you, chief.

/I have found in these threads that they are filled with morans who don't understand that the Administration lied about whether there was a protest outside the Embassy before the attack.

So then tell me, could the Administration have been putting out that line to keep the perpetrators from fleeing the country, perhaps?

And why should the general public be privy to an ongoing terrorism investigation?

I have no doubt that they would do every thing they could to shred Huntsman in the hearings. Agreeing to work with Obama in any way is treason in their minds. Dick Lugar learned this the hard way.

We've captured or killed almost all of the attackers. If she'd said "We know exactly who attacked us and we're retaliating", the terrorists would've been a LOT more cautious, and probably would've gotten the hell out of Dodge before we could capture them.

If they got away with the attack, it would have hurt Obama. And that's ALL Republicans cared about.

It's hilarious that the Benghazi "scandal" is the worst possible scandal/conspiracy/herpderp you got on 0bama after 4 years of Muslim Usurpation.

Hmm, ongoing investigation where there was a lot of things to sort through, as well as not wanting to give our enemies information. Yeah, I can see why this would be a humongous anti-American lie that Rice cooked up herself so as to allow Obama to contact the lizard-men and launch Bigfoot from the cloaked satellite in orbit to attack the Republican National Convention.

Benghazi is not and was not a scandal. No matter how much the right wishes it was. If you people truly cared, you'd have been outraged over all of the other times our embassies and consulates have been attacked over the years. The only reason you cared about this one was because Obama's in the White House.

"The number-one job is to make Obama a one-term president". Pardon me if I don't believe any of you after this statement and four years of trucking up and around to try to make it come true.

The lie didn't kill anyone, but it's still kinda shiatty to lie to everyone about American deaths for political gain. If they were "terrorist attacks" then Obama looks bad before the election. If they were because of some mean man in California and Obama condemns him, then Obama look good (I guess) before the election.

Sort of a shiatty thing to do to those families.
