No, it was actually clever and somewhat funny (and not to mention entirely appropriate). By chance are you a conservative? It would go a long way towards explaining why the humor went over your head.

Dear Mrs. Clinton,

All I want to know is why you failed to attend the Kibbler Annual Flag Football Extravaganza.  I assume you must have received my invitation, because you did not RSVP back.  And yet the Extravaganza came and went, and here we still are--the Kibbler Annual Flag Football Extravaganza Executive Committee, Fox News, and the United States Congress--waiting.  Still waiting.

I must say that we are all very concerned.

Regards,
Kibbler
Chief Executive
Kibbler Annual Flag Football Extravaganza Executive Committee

NuttierThanEver: gerrymander: DERP


For fiscal 2013, the GOP-controlled House proposed spending $1.934 billion for the State Department's Worldwide Security Protection program -- well below the $2.15billion requested by the Obama administration. House Republicans cut the administration's request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012. (Negotiations with the Democrat-controlled Senate restored about $88 million of the administration's request.) Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans' proposed cuts to her department would be "detrimental to America's national security" -- a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan's budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.


This is what you call "getting your ass handed to you."

ThatBillmanGuy: Wait, its now a lie that the government spent a lot of time trying to blame this on a Muslim parody film? I'm sort of out of the loop on this, but I remember everyone talking about how that film was to blame. When did that change? What the hell was everyone talking about that film for, then? I'm not up on this Benghazi thing, so I'm seriously asking and not trying to troll, since bringing it up seems to provoke that kind of reaction.

/not my intent.


You remember correctly. Everyone was talking about that film and they had all geared up for a long series of expose's trying to link bad cinema to violent acts. Honestly it was a terrible movie. Poorly written and horribly produced - so bad you can kind of understand why an audience might riot after seeing it.

But the reality is this. The GOP controlled congress reduced security at all the embassies (in spite of pleas for help from both the white house and the embassies themselves) and are thus somewhat culpable. It is all desperate smoke screens.

ginandbacon: When did this level of crass vitriol become socially acceptable in public?


1796

Perhaps the most notorious attacks came from Benjamin Franklin Bache, grandson of the famous Founder. Bache led the anti-Adams charge with a new pro-Republican newspaper, Philadelphia's General Advertiser, later the Aurora. Lambasting the Jay Treaty only eight days after Washington signed it, Bache compared President Washington to a certain absolutist across the Atlantic-King Louis. Bache relentlessly criticized the President. He insisted that Washington had "debauched" the nation. Another prominent Republican and co-editor of the Aurora, William Duane, thought Washington's final address to the nation was "fraught with incalculable evils" and the President was stricken with a "sick mind." The American Mercury levied the first "elitist" charge in the history of American presidential politics, asking, "Does the President fancy himself the grand Lama of this country that we are to approach him with superstitious reverence or religious regard?" Later, the Mercury proclaimed, "We have been guilty of idolatry for far too long."

...

The Republican paper derided Adams and his ideology. Bache championed Jefferson as a sort of Messiah, here to eradicate the evils of Federalism. As such, Bache was ruthless in his attacks against Adams, claiming that he "would deprive you of a voice in choosing your president and senate, and make both hereditary." Bache questioned his readers if they wanted, "this champion of kings, ranks, and titles to be your president."

The Federalists, however, were not to be outdone. In their attacks of Jefferson, they commonly referred to him as atheistic, anarchistic, and cowardly, claiming he'd rather plunge the country into bloody French chaos then push forward with a strong central government. A famous Federalist description of the Jeffersonians proclaimed that they were "cut-throats who walk in rags and sleep amidst filth and vermin," which, frankly, makes a Bain Capital attack look like a warm hug.

you mean that the administration shifted their view as more detailed and accurate information became available?  THOSE MONSTERS!  Republicans, on the other hand, come up with an explanation based pm inaccurate data and NEVER change their opinion no matter what.  because that's how a country should be run, gotdammit!

I have noticed that since winning re-election, President Obama and his staff are less patient with the opposition and their surrogates when they get all derpy. Rather than trying to "be nice" like before, they respond with snarkiness. I hope it continues.

He doesn't know. That's how you know it was a coverup. If he knew what was being covered up, then he could tell you. Duh.

woah...that's just like the guy who keeps rearranging my furniture when I'm sleeping...he always manages to get everything back to exactly where it was and disappear without a trace before I wake up.


No it's much worse than that. Have you ever noticed in the morning your kitchen looks EXACTLY THE SAME as it did when you went to bed? This would be like me asking you what is being covered up in your kitchen. You don't know because it's a cover-up, just like Benghazi. For all you know there's a wild sex orgy going on at 2AM only to covered-up at 4AM so you don't notice by 6AM. Patriots like Gentoolive are just asking questions, trying to figure out what went on. Evidence of nothing wrong going on is exactly what they want you to think.

Nana's Vibrator: I remember exactly what you're referring to, but I'm too lazy/apathetic to look up whether these things were stated by the White House or if they were just said by someone in the news.


All the first news reports said that it was started by protests over the movie. Since there were protests going on in Egypt over the movie on the same day, it seemed reasonable to assume that the protest in Libya was started the same way, and it wasn't clear for a long time whether there was actually a movie protest going on when the attack started, or if a bunch of people attacked for some other reason.

After the entire investigation was done, they decided that there had been no movie protest in Libya, but just an attack, even though some witnesses had said that people were protesting over the movie there--which is how it hit the media in the first place.

TL;DR: The President SHOULD HAVE KNOWN what an investigation took a couple of months to figure out.  Liar, liar, dead people on fire.

State farked up and EOP tried to hide it. Rice took the fall because, well, why not?

From the reports, it sounds like whomever took the call in Libya really farked up. Fox is/was pretty much the only news outlet digging for more information on this. Their continuing reports from Libya were pretty accurate, for the most part.

For all the Democrats are like "hey, who cares", here's a tip: the Ambassador was killed in the attack, which doesn't happen often, and is a pretty big deal...except in the case of this poor schmuck, who got himself killed in an election year.
