And Harry Reid is gonna take that shiat. The Senate needs to respond by changing the filibuster and hold rules. Reid threatened to for this kind of crap earlier this year, and they made some appointments. They need to just do it and stop threatening. We need to stop letting these asshats halt the day to day operations of the government because they are not happy about a single issue.

Get in line, pal.  It's not like the Senate is confirming people left and right otherwise.

This recent Benghazi-nado must mean we have the official kick-off of the 2014 election cycle.

1.Stubborn entrenchment wins primaries.
2. There are no serious repercussions for ineptitude.

I'm sure there're plenty more.

Okay, could someone please explain to me why Lindsey has such a hard on for everything Benghazi related??? Does he have a mental deficit that only allows him to focus on one thing at a time?

Their testimony will prove once and for all that Obama had the consular staff gather into an office and get on speakerphone before yelling "Come and get em" in perfect Arabic.

I started posting a snarky comment about how they were the last line of defense against the Islamicist Socialist takeover of our country. Then I remembered how many people actually believe that and just got sad.

So the real answer is we have Republicans because they are a symptom of a large, country wide, mental disorder.

Because all viewpoints are equal and valid and should be given exact attention. I mean, just yesterday one guy was arguing that water is wet while the other guy argued that water are the candy tears of the turtle buffalo who rules the skies over 3/4 of the planet and dukes it out with a giant snake made up of safety cones that are on fire. Oh, and they are completely invisible and made out of purple french toast. I told them tbat both their views are equally valid and should be heard to all. Also, we agreed that both sides are bad but the water is wet guy is a billion times worse.

I'm living up North right now so even if the US somehow weakens to the point that it gets partitioned by its neighbors, I'll probably end up on the Canadian side so I'm good.

Hey Texans, good luck.

He's up for re-election and fears an "attack from the right" by teabaggers, so he is latching onto a brainless red meat issue that fires up stupid people.
 
2013-10-28 12:34:08 PM
and furthermore, benghazi
 
2013-10-28 12:34:50 PM
Also - I don't get it.  Is their accusation that the CIA had the ambassador killed?  Or that Obama let the attack go forward for some political reason?

Oh wait, I'm trying to make sense of nonsense.  All that needs to be said is that the Republicans desperately want to gin up a "scandal" to get their crazy, information-deprived base all fired up.  On the other hand, they don't want to investigate real problems, such as the ongoing NSA issues, Gitmo, extrajudicial killings through drone strikes, etc.

Of course, the goal is not to investigate any substantive issues - the goal is to pander to their crazy base and distract them from actual problems that might affect or concern them.

Obama needs to tie this to the shutdown.

"First, the Republicans shut down the whole government over a tantrum. Now this guy won't even let us fill critical positions in government to keep things working. "
