The Republican Oath of Office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend my bullshiat distractions against all rational beings, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true malice and lack of logic to the same; that I take this obligation ignorantly, without any mental capacity or purpose of existing; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the talking points of my party committee on which I am about to sell out my nation.

99% of the American public have forgotten everything about Benghazi, except maybe the name.

It is virtually impossible to get people to care at this point.

Funny how the left doesn't give a shiat about terrorists killing Americans unless they are watching a foot race.

And the right didn't give a shiat about the 12 embassy attacks under Bush but is all of a sudden concerned and indignant now that one happened under Obama.

Well I guess we're being redundant.

For some reason, I think this captures the Republican response to Benghazi fairly well.

So they have a witness with important information.  You don't suppose it would occur to them to turn this witness over to the people actually investigating the attacks, do you?

If you step back and really examine what the Republicans are saying, it's pretty farking disgusting. When you get right down to it, their argument is basically that the President cares so little about Americans that he sat idly by and let them die.

I don't know how Obama doesn't flip his shiat on a daily basis.

40 years of perceived Republican supremacy on National Defense have been shattered, and this is all they have left. At this exact moment I'm listening to Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani expound on the subject.

I'm kind of happy that Republicans are focusing on the Benghazi, for one reason: It means they are finally, at long last, getting used to the idea the Obama is black. Now they have the intellectual freedom to focus on other non-issues.

Welcome to the 20th century, GOP! We are so proud of you. Give us a yell when you get to the 21st.

Isn't it kind of a given that if you move to a third world country to represent the United States it might be dangerous?  It's like becoming a census worker in Appalachia.

Ok, So correct me if I'm wrong here, but I'm seriously trying to understand why the Republicans are so butthurt.

This is how I understand it:

* Attack on embassy
* Administration initially says it was because of riots over youtube video because that was happening in 2 or 3 other counties at the exact same time
* More info emerges over the next few days and administration says "this looks like it was actually a terrorist attack"
* Republicans: "Why didn't you say it was terrorism on day 1? OMGIMPEACH!!!1!11"

Am I missing anything?
 
2013-05-05 10:02:40 AM  
Here's my theory:
The biggest shortfall of the Clinton administration was the bad relationship he had with the CIA. They didn't trust that he would have their backs if they got caught doing something "bad" so they didn't do much at all. Bush came in and it was one fail after another. Now Obama is in, the CIA is getting results and the GOP can't believe that all kinds of dirty work isn't being done. Benghazi is all about the CIA, and the GOP is determined to poke at it until they find something they claim that Obama is covering up, so they can finally start the impeachment.

I don't live in his state, but isn't Graham facing running against a Teabagger?   People have mentioned that here as his motivation for going strong DERP.  So, Republicans shouldn't be afforded even the courtesy of the pretense of giving a damn about the motives of the attackers or the loss of life.  It's all a political stunt to appeal to the 'baggers.  That is truly sickening.

And that was a legitimate concern that should be addressed. Did the State Department take the threat seriously enough?

FTFY, because there are actually hundreds of thousands of people that think Benghazi is the biggest coverup since Obama used his weather machine to conjure up Hurricane Sandy to "Steal the election."

The only reason they started this whole Benghazi thing was because Romney kept shiatting the bed when it came to foreign policy.

Hell, he managed to piss off the UK and even Bush didn't do that.

That's the saddest thing about this whole situation. There are probably systemic issues within the State Department and its security that need to be addressed, but instead the GOP is apoplectic about Obama and Hillary eating imaginary arugula while they laugh at footage of Americans dying.

So way to go, guys. Your incessant need to cry wolf has made anyone who doesn't freebase derp tune out.

The statements indicating the attack was due to a riot over the video were known to be false at the time Susan Rice gave them.  For whatever reason, the Weeners was purposely misleading.

....my two cents:

1.  President Obama is not responsible for anything that happened at Benghazi.  He is not omniscient nor omnipotent, no matter how much people on both sides of the aisle would like him to be, for reasons of either praise or blame.

2.  WHATEVER responsibility for this Chinese fire drill lies at State and Defense.  It was aggravated by the refusal on the part of some Presidential appointees to acknowledge that Islamic militants may, indeed, consider a terrorist attack on September 11th.

3.  I believe that former SecState Clinton knew exactly what happened (after a full internal investigation, not before/during the attack) and played it down in order to protect the President and her own political future.

4.  The response would, if anything, have been even more Farked up in a McCain or Romney administration.

/You may open fire when ready, Farkers.

Sounds about right.

It always amazes me that the right-wingers in the us are always instantly denying Obama any kind of credit for getting osama because he was "Stealing credit from the Seals who got him" since he didn't personally go in, yet the embassy attacks are 100% his fault or whatever since he is president. It makes no sense to me.
