  3. Just go away already

    @truth hurts – I wonder if you were this hard on about failed administrations and ignored communications when the bush administration failed to acknowledge information they received years, months, and a week before 9/11... Go away with your slander already!

    @ plain & simple – no one's listening – so you can go away too. You're a hater – just admit it. I just KNOW you aren't calling Robme a real presidential candidate – the flip flopper who stands for NOTHING! I'm from Massachursetts, I know. Ask us and we'll tell you all you need to know about robme, otherwise, go away with the malarkey already!

    You two lack character and compassion. Its SICKENING. As if you've never made mistakes before or dropped the ball in your life. We're not listening and Romney's not winning; now do us a favor and go blog on some far right-hate the president-support the flip flopper- all because I'm a loser myself site. jeesh.

    For those the keep bringing up Benghazi then I will say to them "My Pet Goat". Did you complain that Bush just sat on his duff when America was attacked?"

    plain&simple - What do you know about anything that went on in Benghazi???
    I know when the Liar-in-Chief is lying for weeks to the American people and then covering up the total incompetence of his adminstration that cost the lives of four Americans, including our ambassador, who had asked for INCREASED security but got REDUCED security. They listened to the fight live and had overhead coverage from drones and yet LIED about a non-existant demonstration. This is the biggest cover up ever seen in this country's history AND PEOPLE DIED while Obama LIED, and then went campaign fund raising.

    The President has always shown that he cares about American. And for that person who made the comment about Lybia-don't worry the president in on that job too.

    Only a fool rushes in-a real smart person as President Obama would gather all the fact, get his "duck in order" then with a cordinated effort-act swiftly and bring those person/s responsible for our 4 fellow American murderers to justice.

    Remember, Bin Laden ran and ran, but eventually he could not hide (not even amounts influential Afgans) and our commander President Obama cause him to be captured and disposed off. That was justice!

  7. The Situation

    The President is going into the places that were badly hit by Sandy. Meantime the utlimate opportunist Romney is sending relief aid to only the 4 battle ground states, VA, PA, NC, NH, but not to NY, NJ or in his adopted home state of MA. Oh, that's right, Mitts has a fighting chance in the 1st 4 states next week, the 3 especially his buddy Christie's state, Mitts has no chance of turning those states into the red from blue.

    So the moral of the story is for Mitts, I'll help all of you for political gain instead of really helping the ones that really needs help, regardless the color of their state. If this is showing being president, Mitts, you are failing already. God help the USA if this clown is elected next week.

    4 were killed in Benghazi-the investigation is still underway.
    The problem is THEY NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED! Our ambassador NEVER should have been unprotected on the anniversary of 9/11 in a hostile radical muslim part of Libya. The consulate was bombed TWICE. The British ambassador had an assassination attempt and the British removed him. Our Ambassador requested MORE security, security instead WAS CUT. This is GROSS INCOMPETENCE that resulted in the death of 4 Americans. And then to make matters worse, while the attack went on for 7 hours, NOBODY could help them.

    Our pres. said the ones responsible will be dealth with.
    Right... will he charge himself and his lackeys with gross negligence, or being accessories before the act of first or second degree murder?

    Hopefully Christie will eat his own fat ass for going against the government.If I were Obama I would let them drown in their own feces.Why doesn't Romney open up his own check book and charter a plane for the victims.He is all talk. Just like the left believes it is god's will for women to be raped "this is gods will "for letting this disaster happen. Reap what you sow you two faced SOB"S

    truth hurts-
    Seriously, dude... no one is even listening anymore. All you are now is that little chirpy chihuahua dog that just won't shut up. Maybe Benghazi would have some relevance if the previous administration hadn't killed tens of thousands through fake wars and missed 9-11 intelligence. However, in comparison to that, your little yippy dog chirps about Benghazi just look ludicrous.

    The fact is, and everyone here also knows this, you could give a rat's behind about anyone killed in Benghazi. We know it. You know it. So just give up the pretense. This is just another excuse for you to go all partisan on Obama and it's as transparent as glass. You aren't fooling anyone.

    Please. For the love of all that is decent, just shut the efff up already.

    Of course he wasn't! You crazy? No no...this is all about the right wing extremists and Teatrolls who desperately believed in and supported the dumbest POTUS in our history...they think that this is they're big "AH HA!!!! GOTCHA!!!" moment where they get to accuse Obama of the same thing Dubya was accused of. It's motivated almost enitrely by a need for vengeance and bad upbringings.
