    this is what people SHOULD be asking instead of circling the wagons around the Dear Leader. oh well

    SNIP:



    Posted 11/15/2012 06:54 PM ET

    Leadership: Obama admits sending our U.N. ambassador, who had "nothing to do with Benghazi," to explain Benghazi on five Sunday talk shows "at the request of the White House" with talking points "provided to her."

    Considering this was President Obama's first press conference in eight months, his bluster that if "Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me" regarding Benghazi is a bit odd.

    When the questions needed to be asked and answers needed to be given, both the president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were nowhere to be found.

    Why wasn't our secretary of state, whose department received real-time emails that our Benghazi consulate was under a terrorist attack for which the al-Qaida-linked group Ansar al-Sharia was taking credit, on these talk shows? Why not send the person who knew about prior attacks and requests for additional security that were denied and the diplomats who warned the consulate was surrounded by terrorist training camps?

    Obama seemed more outraged that the rumored successor to Clinton at State was being criticized for parroting an obvious lie than by the terrorist attack that killed a U.S. ambassador, two former Navy SEALs and another diplomat. He and his administration knew that very night, the night he flew off to Las Vegas to campaign, that terrorists killed the four Americans, yet he sent his U.N. ambassador out to lie for him.

    Does Obama really expect us to believe "she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her" when the CIA station chief and the National Counterterrorism Center chief had said it was an organized terrorist attack with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and there was in fact no mob?

    If this was Susan Rice's audition to be the next secretary of state, she's not ready for her close-up. What she was provided were the same nonsensical talking points about a video that Obama repeated six times before the U.N. on Sept. 25, two weeks after the attack but not once calling it a terrorist attack.

    The best one was Clyburn. Paraphrasing.... "Two big bad mean old white guys picking on a black woman." Pluuuuuze!

    How about two concerned Senators wanting to find out who set her up to go out and push "the video caused it" angle.

    Always the race card with these people.

    Time for these "leaders" to grow some balls and say, Fuck you. You want to play the race card, play it. We're still going ahead investigating her whether you like it or not.

    This PC bullshit is just a sham to cover for incompetence.

    How many times do you need to touch the stove to keep getting burned by it?

    Romney tried to make hay about this when it happened, and everyone jeered him for trying to use a coffin as a soap box.

    Then he tried again in the second debate, and got slapped down hard.

    Here's the thing you tiny minds don't get. There really was no good reason for Obama to blame the video if the terrorism was to blame. If it was terrorists all along, that just plays into Obama's narrative that drone strikes are necessary, and people tend to rally around the president when the country is under attack.

    Instead, Rice had some information that was wrong, and said what she knew, qualifying with the point that the matter was still being investigated by the FBI and CIA.

    The thing is, the Outrage factory of Hate Radio and Faux News has you and Staph worked up about this, but most people just don't care at this point.

    They'd better care because Obama is trying to coverup a Rendition site in Benghazi.

    It's funny, Obama has so little sense that he feels nobody will question why he sent out a spokesperson to talk to the public telling a bogus story knowing full well she didn't have a clue what went on.

    Or the other possibility is that she knew exactly what went on but was told to lie to the American public to provide cover for the President and the Secretary of State who were hiding behind this phony story.

    Democrats want to blame Bush for this claiming that Colan Powell was just saying what Bush wanted him to. It's okay for Democrats to make the same mistake even though they raised hell about it for years. We have every right to hammer these folks for this yet the left's defense is moral-relativism once again.

    These people really have no shame at all.

    Are we going to send all the Teabaggers there?

    If they need sadistic guards, where can I send a resume?
