This means Sarah Palin is automatically President, and Obama has to walk down Pennsylvania Ave., beating a drum that goes, "FART!" each time he hits it.

The American people deserve to know that P. Huscarl Bingo was having a session with his surrogate fart sex therapist when the phone rang with the news from Benghazi.

Muta: Does the text of the e-mails the Whitehouse release match the text the Republicans released?

Why didn't the "fact-checker answer that question?

The text does not match exactly because at the original White House briefing, the White House refused to allow any of the reporters to have copies of the emails.  Reporters were allowed to read them and take notes.  The report was based on the notes of Jon Karl, which were not 100% accurate.

The White House's decision to withhold the actual emails, but allow only a viewing of them, is implied but not explicitly stated in the TPM article.

factoryconnection: FlashHarry: point of fact: the WaPo is a rightwing paper.

Wait... what?  Where does that put the WaTimes and the Examiner?

The Post is right-leaning, the Examiner is right-wing, and the Times should not be called a newspaper.

spentshells: I'm surprised you don't know that. Dr. Paul is an unsung American hero.

If all it takes to be an unsung American hero is to stuff your hand in someones vagina and talk about the Gold Standard and the Fed, then our standards have become incredibly pathetic.

God bless you, sir, and the fat-dog-fart-related childhood trauma that made you like this.

cameroncrazy1984: OnlyM3: Does the record show the administration knew it was terrorism? Yes.

Which record?

I'm assuming vinyl.

vygramul: How do you distinguish between that and what you are doing?

I'm not the one who held up an exceptional example and then argued that it wasn't exceptional circumstances that led to it.

Your ridiculous commentary has all the hallmarks of the typically shallow and meaningless conservative "thought" processes. You want to hold up an exception as evidence of your perfectly mundane claim of political bis. It never occurs to you that if you're going to hold up an exception that maybe there is an exceptional reason it occured. Like maybe one candidate was so exceptionally bad that they took the exceptional step of breaking long-standing tradition of not endorsing a candidate to endorse his opponent.

But, no. That can't be it. It's just not plausible that a conservative candidate could be completely and utterly terrible for president, right? The one who lost by a substantial margin despite absolutely staggering amounts of spending on him. It's not that he was an atrocious candidate, no, it's because of "liberals".

It's just like the fact-checkers during the cycle. It's not that Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan lied, oh, god no, that can't be. It must be because of liberals! He didn't lie, the liberal fact-checkers just have a different opinion! It's not that they didn't have any actual plans to show anybody, it's that any outlet that reported that fact or ran an editorial criticizing their lack of concrete plans is liberal!

Liberals! Liberals! The problem is always Emmanuel Goldstein!

He was out destroying the very fabric of America, duh.

Codenamechaz: So if I'm reading this right, they're saying the white house is lying because there's no way republicans would do something like make up a statement to make someone else look bad?

Basically the "no one could be this stupid" defense.  You could use this defense retroactively:

-Nixon would not have been so stupid as to record his meetings about bugging the hotel rooms
-Certainly Bush wouldn't have been so stupid as to invade Iraq unless they were sure where the WMD's were
-Reagan would never have been dumb enough to authorize giving arms to terrorists for hostages

This is actually why Ron Paul should have been elected. Americans would not have even been in that country.

Too bad you all did not think this through. It is unfortunate Dr. Paul will be too old to run for office next time around. I told all my friends in the USA to write him in.

Has anyone determined where Obama was and what he was doing between the time he was told the embassy was under attack and the time the ambassador was murdered?

I heard the question asked, but I don't remember getting an answer.

I ask because we were treated to those photos of Obama in the Situation Room being very presidential-looking when bin Ladin was being killed.  Are there any photos of him dealing with the embassy murders in a similar manner?

Will we be seeing conservatives defending.... nay, hailing the efforts of the liberal, in-the-tank, lamestream MSM media like the WaPo and broadcast news outlets?  Someone check the weather report for Hell!

Also, Obama Administration, I am dissapoint.
