Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

You might want to ask why the White House promoted the deception that the Benghazi attack was caused by a video when, in fact, they knew within an hour that it was a terror attack executed by Jihadist elements.

I wonder how "fake" these scandals would be if G.W. Bush were still in office?

You might want to read the Senate report on Benghazi since it was passed out of a committee chaired by a democrat with democratic majority.

You might want to ask AG Holder why he will not provide the investigatory documents and reports to the House Oversight committees with jurisdiction.

You might want to ask HHS secretary why they reported millions of ACA signups when the numbers are not even close.

You might want to ask why the FBI has not interviewed 90% of the conservative groups that were, and are, hanging in limbo since 2010.

"Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected," Obama said.

5 amendments have nothing to do with filibuster, buster.

It has everything to do with the fact that Harry Reid is an idiot and a "senatorial tyrant".

The President himself said that there were no "shovel ready" projects.

Why is it you guys can't get your stories straight?

Jax, Stevens did, in fact, refuse security offered by the military, (and that's the key). Taking General Ham up on that offer would have been a slap in the face to the State Department and Secretary Clinton. I would have taken it but I'm a military kind of guy.

Looks like the latest lie by your buddy the President is the "millions of people signing up for medicaid". More like 380 thousand.

At some point, guys, you are going to have to admit that this administration is totally incompetent. No more blaming republicans.

6 years into his presidency and 5 years after the end of the recession the new fight, (propaganda), being put forth by said incompetents is the need for "emergency unemployment benefits extension".

America's infrastructure was rated in like 35th place. That defines shovel ready. The right wing won't pass Barry's jobs bill because they want him to fail. Tax the rich and put Americans to work just like Deweight did. So what if I can't spell Eisenhower, I saw him on the white house lawn. Watch Freem insult some more instead of giving us his candidate.

jax...Freem hates evidence so much he will start calling you names next. There is a good way for Americans to keep from getting killed in the middle of muslim holy wars. Stay out of muslim holy wars. Having a marine barracks for protection means a bigger target and a bigger bomb.

freem..I see a pattern of the right calling everything a scandal but not knowing what the scandal is. Christie has shown you what a scandal is and you didn't say who is next in line now that he is a mess. Palin? Bachman? Cain?

Does any part of that "truth" include the lie that it was a video causing a spontaneous demonstration? Did anyone take out ads paid for by the American public which were aired in Pakistan pushing that same lie? Did Rice go on five talk shows pushing it too? Did O' include that lie in a speech made at the U freakin' N?

Was the lie perpetuated during the heated battle of election year politics in order to further the election campaign narrative?

I see that neither of you didn't forget to not mention any of that. Had you included it, it might have concluded you.

Jax, it appears that conservatives are more concerned with conspiracies than they are angry at the actual perpetrators of the Benghazi firefight. It is far more easy for them to place blame. While their moral outrage at the President over four Americans killed, which is a tragedy that may or may not have been avoidable is misguided, while NOT ONE WORD has been expressed over a WAR that cost far more than four lives, as well as an ignorance of history, as Embassies have been attacked before, with more disastrous results (history again). A reasonable person can only think that all protests on this issue are motivated by partisan politics, rather than some nebulous search for Truth, which always seems to elude them.

And there's more where Stevens could have helped himself:

"The same Aug. 16 cable had also promised that requests “for additional physical security upgrades and staffing needs” for the Benghazi mission would be submitted through the Tripoli embassy, but “the Committee has not seen any evidence that those requests were passed on by the Embassy, including by the Ambassador, to State Department headquarters before the September 11 attacks in Benghazi.”

You said Obama lied about shovel-ready. What is the lie? Your definition is correct. And the stimulus funded them as promised.

After reading the cable, Gen. Carter F. Ham, then the commander of the United States Africa Command, called Mr. Stevens to ask if the embassy in Tripoli needed additional military personnel, potentially for use in Benghazi, “but Stevens told Ham it did not,” the report said. A short time later, General Ham reiterated the offer at a meeting in Germany, and “Stevens again declined,” the report said."

Stevens signed his own death warrant.

Free, why did you leave out the part about Stevens turning down offers of additional security? "During an Aug. 15, 2012, meeting on the deteriorating security around Benghazi that Mr. Stevens attended, a diplomat stationed there described the situation as “trending negatively,” according to a cable sent the next day and quoted in the report. A diplomatic security officer “expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support, and the overall size of the compound.”

A C.I.A. officer at the meeting pointed out “the location of approximately 10 Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi,” according to the same cable." to be cont'd

"5 Amendments allowed by the Majority and the republicans are the obstructionists."

We've explained how filibusters work in the past, do you need a refresher?

ZERO evidence. Look up the word zero, and look up the word evidence. It should clarify things for you BOTH.

I see you conservatives learn very s l o w l y....and just cannot let go of the falling sky theory. Shame on both of you.

First, the IRS 'conspiracy' against conservative organizations has been thoroughly debunked. Now, as of today, no less than THREE Bi~partisan U.S. Senate committees as well as the Accountability Review Board have determined the WAS NO BENGHAZI conspiracy by the White House! So much for false narrative, eh boys?

"..The report found that, in the months before the attack, American intelligence agencies gave ample warning about deteriorating security in Benghazi and the risks to Americans in the city. As these warnings were issued, the C.I.A. bolstered its security at the agency’s Benghazi facility — known as the Annex — but the State Department did not make similar moves to protect the diplomatic compound..."

HMMM. You're right again Freeman
