Benghazi was an EO5 on the Enhanced Obama scale.  It left total devastation and sucked entire political careers clean from their foundations.  And yet, nobody cares.  Unbelievable.

[Capt Eric] Flanagan also pointed to Title 10 of the US Code, which states that members of the Marine Corps shall "perform such other duties as the President may direct." In short, if the President asks you to hold an umbrella over his head, you hold a goddamn umbrella over his farking head.

I can't believe that's hard for people to understand. The best part is they wasted their poutrage on that, and then Barry trolled them like a boss yesterday and shook a guards hand instead of returning a salute. I'm willing to bet he told the guard that, too.

That's what killed me most about the stupid people.  He's the goddamn President of the United States of America and Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military on the planet.  Not only must the servicemembers do as he says, but I'll bet those Marines considered it a hell of an honor to serve two world leaders during a diplomatic press conference.

And then he made the guard get on his hands and knees and pray towards Mecca, then went to the guards house afterwards and lit a bag of dog crap on fire on his front porch which cost American taxpayers $8,000,000,000.

I got to meet then Vice President Bush (if you count a reception line as 'meeting') when I was at Ft Bragg, and it was very cool, even though I had not much use for his politics and even less for his career as a CIA frontman.

And Pinal County, Arizona, Sheriff Paul Babeu maintains that Fast and Furious "is a much larger scandal than Watergate." And of course there is a hashtag: #WorseThanWatergate.

That's not wrong. How many innocent people were killed from watergate?

This is also the dumbest infographic I've seen in a long time. "Hey, look nothing's worse than Watergate, because that's how we ranked everything, therefore Obama is awesome!"

Apparently, a bunch of dead Mexicans is "nothingburger" to the author.

If you're concerned about Mexicans dying, maybe you should ask Congress and the President to stop the War on Drugs  since that's responsible for a magnitude more deaths than F&F.

No, it was a fark up. But the right's desire to tie whatever scandal directly to Obama that it can without any evidence to back it up does get tiring though.

The importance of each of the administration's little problems should be measured on their own merits, not on some comparative scandal metric.

Unless it can be shown the IRS crap and heavy-handed doj stuff were directed from higher up, it is most important for Obama to shut it down and deal appropriately with those responsible. If not, he's accountable for that lack of accountability.

It doesn't seem the Benghazi deceptions, on their own lack of merits, are something that need to tie up the administration any more than they have already.
