    Well OF COURSE they are. That's what Benghazi is all about. Spend millions of taxpayer dollars, not on a legitimate investigation, but to weaken Hillary politically.

    They are still trying to talk about Bengazi? Talk about beating a dead horse.

    Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!!!

    That will be the Republican Party chant if Hillary runs in 2016. Unable to run on their own non-accomplishments, they'll run on imaginary Democratic scandals of their own making.

    I think our country's in trouble when we've lost even the ability to have a serious discussion on any issue.

    Duh! They'd still be talking about the War of 1812 if they thought it would damage the Democrats.

    she could always use it though...

    "did i kill a bunch of terrorists?..ya, what of it? 'Merica! pew pew!"

    democrats are such pussies that dont know how to handle media.
    Just like clinton (bill) should have handled the question better at his conference. (looking down at inside of podium) "Yes she blew me, shes sucking me right now..Next question"

    Given that there were no answers for people dying I'm not sure why everyone is so eager to forget about it? People died, no answers were given except that some bogus video was the reason.

    Anyways, Benghazi will be dwarfed by the IRS probe in scandal-worthy news.

    Typical of the Dems to try to get everyone close their eyes and ears to anything that is negative about what has happened under Obama. The ineptness of Obama is frightening. Russia laughs at him, Middle East laughs at him. He has no foreign policy other than "lets just hope the problems go away if we don't talk about them or do anything about them". Hillary was the Secretary of State when the Benghazi incident happened and didn't do anything. No explanation for her ineptness. She has accomplished NOTHING PRESIDENTIAL. Isn't it telling when interviewed that she couldn't think of anything substantial that she did when she was Sec of State. She's all hype (like Obama), and no real documented successes in leading anything. God help our country if she becomes President after Obama. Putin will be licking his chops and laughing as he invades the rest of the the former USSR to reconstitute it.

    +1000 Their strategy is to deflect, deflect, deflect then say it's old news. Don't forget the "reset" with Russia. Her accomplishments are zero except for traveling around the world.

    An ambassador who ignored State Department policy by going there. How about the 250+ Marines killed in Beirut, due to the Reagan Administration's failed policy, and lack of proper security? And then we had to withdraw in failure, with our tail between our legs. Why didn't you Republicans get upset about that, and criticize your Saint Ronnie?

    Or a little more recent, over 3000 US citizens and military were killed during the 9/11 attacks. On whose watch was that? Not Obama's nor Hillary Clinton's. Why don't we hear more from you about THOSE failures? A lot more people died, and the whole country remains traumatized over it, the aftershocks still being felt.

    Or the fact that more US embassy staff were killed during Bush's Presidency than Obama's to date. Why wasn't THAT an issue with you Republicans at the time?

    No, fact is you just can't stand to have a Democrat, and worse, a BLACK Democrat, in the White House. That's your real problem. And the fear that a female Democrat might occupy the White House next.

    Imagine if Obama was the FAILURE that Bush was!

    Imagine if Obama had ignored warnings of imminent attack on American soil & 9/11 happened on Obama's watch!

    Imagine if Obama took a record surplus & turned it into record deficit!

    Imagine if Obama LIED about Iraq being an imminent threat to USA & sent 4500 Soldiers to their deaths while wearing a jumpsuit and saying mission accomplished!

    Imagine if Wall Street Crashed & Obama had to bail out all the banks like Bush did!

    Republicans beating Benghazi drum after all the destruction they did is a sick joke!

    The GOP - and everyone else - is completely justified in bringing up Benghazi at every opportunity. Clinton and Obama were completely derelict in their duties of protecting the 4 Americans who were killed there. And notice how easily the gay left "forgives" the death of a gay man, which would have raised riots had he died on a Republican watch. The silence from the HRC, NGLTF, and other gay front Democratic fundraisers has been deafening on Benghazi. I will gladly and loudly trumpet it wherever and whenever possible to show just what a hollow, selfish, unethical, amoral, and mean-spirited harpy Hillary has always been and always will be.

    +1 WaPo gets it completely right on this one. "Can we be witnessing the rebirth of American journalism?"

    Imagine staying on point instead of deflecting and denying. Bush was then, Obama is now, and Hillary's the future no one deserves.

    And, a dead GAY ambassador, to boot. Where's the outrage, HRC? No, not you Hillary; you're the one responsible for his death.

    Funny how the world press generally laughs at what a tool Obama's revealed himself to be, an especially "flexible" tool in Putin's hands, while largely remaining silent on the GOP. You'll pardon me for accepting their collective verdict over your selective recollections - if not inventions - from your two year-old jaunt.

    And you're a racist who doesn't know what he's talking about, especially in terms of what contitutes domestic terrorists.
