i'm surprised that lindsey graham didn't tweet it on day one.

"They were saying, 'No one has come to my house, no one has told me what has happened," Tantaros said. "Bob, get ready, put these in your ears. Feels like the families of Benghazi, just saying. And we're better than that."

WHY WON'T OBAMA TELL THESE FAMILIES WHAT HAPPENED?

Truly, the world's greatest monster.

If they don't keep pushing Benghazi it will never become a scandal.
 
2014-03-21 09:50:26 AM  
Frankly, I'm shocked.  The right-wing media in general have been remarkably restrained about this, compared to their usual level of derp.  Of course that could be because it took them this long to figure out a way to link Obama to it.

Think how long it took for them to get this kind of media attention," Tantaros added. "I mean, living in Malaysia, the government seemingly ignored these people, they didn't want their stories to get out. They weren't talking to them."

After warning co-host Bob Beckel to plug his ears lest he explode with rage, Tantaros said it "feels like the families of Benghazi, just saying. And we're better than that."


I'm amused. The black man beat them.

What does a Malaysian Airline Flight have to do with the United States.  Can anyone rational explain that to me?

Whether or not the Malaysian government wanted it, this has had media attention all along. I heard about it the same day (maybe the day after) it went missing and hear a story about it every day. And isn't half the world helping to look for this plane, anyway? This morning, the local news station had the Prime Minister of Australia and an Australian naval officer discussing the search in the Indian Ocean.  The US is helping out, too - they gave files from the pilot's simulator to the FBI to look into it.

And the comparison to Benghazi... I don't even. It's not one of the great mysteries of our time that an embassy in a hostile territory could be unexpectedly ambushed by terrorists. It's not the first time it has happened, and it's not the last time it will happen, unfortunately. Even if there is a Republican in charge, as shown by how many attacks on embassies happened under George Bush's watch.

The 777 is built by Boeing, a defense contractor who is threatening to leave a blue state.  Obama did it to punsish them by making their stock price fall and reduce their cash flow enough to make moving their plant untenable.

ManateeGag: What does a Malaysian Airline Flight have to do with the United States.  Can anyone rational explain that to me?


Directly? Nothing. But the aviation community tends to learn from its farkups, and given the high profile nature of any plane disaster (because of how rare they are, ironically) people start freaking out about air travel, which hurts everyone's pockets, so it's in everyone's best interest to find out hwat happened so they can reassure people that it can't happen to them.

I can't believe Obama refuses to use his time machine to go back and stop that plane from taking off

"They were saying, 'No one has come to my house, no one has told me what has happened," Tantaros said. "Bob, get ready, put these in your ears. Feels like the families of Benghazi, just saying. And we're better than that."

OK, who's supposed to be flying to Malaysia to tell these people what happened? Is it Obama, Kerry, maybe Biden? And what, exaxctly are they supposed to tell these people when they fly over there, anyway? "I'm here from the US government to tell you that nobody knows what happened to that plane"?

You do realize that when Hillary gets elected (and then re-elected) because the Republicans are going to run two Potato candidates in the next elections, we're not going to stop hearing about Benghazi from Fox News for another 10 years, right?

If he hadn't farted it out of the sky in the first place he wouldn't need the time machine now.

There were three Americans aboard. Four died at Benghazi. So this is 75 percent as much of a scandal. Not Watergate, more like "Reagan consults an astrologist" or Travelgate.

Yeah, I don't get how they're trying to tie the two Navy Seals into this, they died like a week or two before the plane disappeared, if I have my seals correct... Who has to pay for the upkeep on Obama's time machine, anyway? Besides, why didn't he take 'em back 30 or 40 years, instead of a week or two?
 
2014-03-21 12:30:55 PM  
Whenever I'm feeling a bit down, I flip the TV over to FOX news. It takes just a few minutes before some absurd thought is spoken and then validated by a 'panel' of experts. I smile knowing that in some household somewhere, someone is nodding in agreement simply because it's FOX.
I don't know exactly why, but this makes me happy.

Same as that situation between Russia and Ukraine over Crimea. If you can't see that, I can't explain it to you. Everything has to do with the United States. We're the lone beacon of freedom in the world! (Shut up, Australia, Japan, Canada, UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and the rest of you lot. You don't know freedom!)

That really wasn't a great Benghazi plug.  A better tact would have been to say that Obama has all this surveillance capabilities, they're tapping your phones, watching everything you do on the internet, they know everything that's going on.  The problem is that he's so incompetent that he can't make sense of all the information.  He knew that the consulate was going to get stormed 3 days before it happened he's just so weak-willed that he let it happen.  Same thing with this Malaysian Air flight.  Obama knew the thoughts of every passenger on that plane but he's just so impotent and lacks the moral fortitude to act that he did nothing.  Now he won't even tell the families of the missing where everyone is.  It's deplorable.

I know - why is this about us? Or is she saying she is a Malaysian citizen and the Malaysian citizens are better than that?

How on earth could anyone expect someone from our country to go explain to these people what happened, when nobody knows what happened and it has nothing to do with us. The plane wasn't even bound for the United States. We could not have less to do with this if we tried, even though we are helping them try to find out what happened, as are many other nations.
