    Republicans are a laughingstock whom nobody takes seriously outside of the right-wing blogosphere. A bunch of desperate, rag-tag, paranoid conspiracy theorists who are still terrified of the Clintons after twenty years of losing to them. It's so sad.

    The ranking member Cummings asked for more hearings. That says it all.

    The questions about who changed the talking points and gave them to Amb Rice? Who decided the FEST team was not to be used?

    Why was the Africon commander relieved of duty the following day?

    Oh, we realize it's a waste of time. The tea bagging crazies continue to forget a budget or focus on jobs and continue to play silly political games. We all get it and most thinking voters can't wait until 2014 to throw these silly, shallow hypocrites out.

    Cant blame the teaparty about a budget when the democrats have blocked a budget in the senate for the past 4 years. An the house did pass a budget again this year just like they have for the past 4 years so you make no sense about that part but yeah Im glad you agree its a waste of time. Once the people are elected they can do whatever they want cuz they wont get fired.

    well since you mentioned it, the Senate which is run by Harry Reid didnt pass a budge in 3 years and Obama was at least 65 days late on his statutory requirement to submit a budge to congress.

    Your point on democrats and budgets is ?

    Far more trivial topics have in the past taken congress's time.

    If this happened a little more than 8 years ago, the name "Bush" would be spoken by the left with even more spit than it is now. People died, and the victim's families and the entire country was lied to, because of political games by the incompetant Obama administration, which tried a cover-up to postpone the inevitable embarrassment. It is most certainly a scandal that needs to be investigated, although I sadly agree that ultimately nothing will be done. The blind worship of the current US royalty brings to mind that old communist term "useful idiots". icon_neutral.gif

    Except that absolutely nothing was "covered-up" and the people died as a result of a terrorist attack on a CIA facility -- not because of anything Obama or Hillary did. Obama was referring to it as terror the very next day. This whole Benghazi "cover-up" according to nutty Republicans is the three or four days it took for the administration to flesh out details of what happened, before they started popping off at the mouth everywhere.

    Republicans shoot first and ask questions later -- that's why they don't get it. Fortunately, the American people do as the PPP poll released today indicates that voters think the GOP is making a fool out of itself (and a hero out of Hillary Clinton) on Benghazi. Republican response: "The poll is skewed, just like the polls showing Obama beating Romney were skewed." #dummies

    Something like this did happen when Bush was President though: the 9/11 attack that killed 3,000 after bush ignored warnings, over 12 attacks on US facilities around the word resulting in deaths, and of course their Iraq lies which led to the unnecessary deaths of thousands of soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqis. Republican response: *crickets*

    Nobody except homophobes, misogynists, and greedy rich people take conservatives seriously.

    If the GOP attempted on purpose to be as ridiculous as possible, they couldn't be as better at it. Comedy.

    The problem is that the 2014 election is going to be really tough for Democrats. The Republicans could lead the Senate and possibly keep the House. They may be able to impeach him just because they can. It just seems like all that matters is a power struggle and a willingness to do anything to get in power and keep in power. There is no focus on dealing with and fixing real problems. Our political system is broken.

    We really need to,
    1: to get the political donations out of politics to reduce corruption (you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours).

    2: design the system so that more than 2 parties have power so that they are forced to work together to get things done. This would help to reduce the polarization that our system is dealing with.

    3: Don't allow politicians to become lobbyists and visa versa. That should be considered to be a conflict of interest.

    I know that these things are unrealistic but I think that is what it would take. Not too long ago, marriage equality was unrealistic. I can only hope that one day these changes can become realistic.

    i still dont see the State department backing off of there recent assertion there was no protest.

    I suspect Benghazi will take a back seat to the AP and IRS and Affordable care act/Kathleen Sebelius asking for donations for liberal healthcare groups. So it wont matter much IMHO.
