I don't care about water gate. It was revolved decades ago.I
don't care about Bengahzi. We were attacked and a few people died.I care about the economy. What solutions or ideas does the right have to fix
them? Why are we rehashing these decades old stories and comparisons rather than
work to fix our #1 problem???
During the presidency of G.W. Bush there were 13 Benghhazis yet the author of
this letter said nothing.
Mr. Larson's letter is a perfect example of the puerile conspiracy
fantasies that entertain the GOP base but otherwise make the rest of the nation
shake their heads in dismay about the sorry state of today's Republican
Party.Editors, why did you deem this letter worthy of space?
The problem is not what happened on September 12, 2012, although it is tragic
that any Americans lost their lives, the problem lies in the apparent coverup.
Nixon was not in trouble for the break in at the Watergate, he covered up and
lied about his knowledge about the situation. What is this administration
hiding, and is their a routine to cover up similar events.
With those 13 attacks under Bush, how many times was Bolton directed to go on a
talk show tour and lie about some video?
Some have even gone so far as to compare Obama's Benghazi cover up with GW
Bush's Weapons of Mass Destruction lies and cover up. Having
living memory of both I can tell you they're not the same. 8,000 died and
70,000 wounded in the Middle East.
Mark1: "What is this administration hiding, and is their a routine to cover
up similar events."This administration is hiding the truth about
Benghazi in exactly the same way that NASA is hiding "the truth" about
the Apollo Moon Landings.Get the point?
It must be sad when even far right politicians like rand have not only abandened
but condemned their conserecy theories.
"With those 13 attacks under Bush, how many times was Bolton directed to go
on a talk show tour and lie about some video?"Why does this
matter? Who cares what the causes were? Does it bring them back to life?Imagine if the GOP spent just half the time on job creation as it has
wasted debating Bengahzi or obama's birth certificate. Our economy would
finally be fixed! I'm tired of debating these nonsensical
matters. Lets move on to our real issues.
Obama didn't cover up Benghazi. Why is it that repubs don't seem
to care that US taxpayers are on the hook for $39 Billion to Dick Cheney's
Haliburton for the war in Iraq?$39 Billion of war profiteering from the VP
and there is no Faux Noise outrage. Explain that one please.
Soooooooo why aren't we holding Mr. Chaffetz's feet to the fire?Wasn't he one of the guys celebrating the "cuts" he made to
the security at these facilities? If he cut the funding for their
security which led to them having inadequate security, shouldn't he be held
This horse no longer has legs.
Still with Bengahzi? Maybe this is one of the reasons that Rush Limbaugh is
encouraging his listeners to quit watching Fox News.
There's a difference between lying and being wrong...
Re: ". . . 'how many times was Bolton directed to go on a talk show
tour and lie about some video?' Why does this matter? Who cares what the
causes were? Does it bring them back to life?"Yeah. Move along.
Nothing to see here.And, whatever you do, don't you dare say
anything that might affect Hillary's chances of succeeding Obama and
becoming a contender for the "Worst President Ever" award.
Benghazi was a tragedy. Brave men died, because security at a mission abroad,
thought to be adequate, proved not to be. There was reason to believe that
security arrangements would fail, which is why a thorough investigation was
needed. Such an investigation took place, and specific recommendations were
made, which are right now being implemented.That's it. That's
all. That's what happened at Benghazi. There is no further scandal. No
evidence of a cover-up, or conspiracy, or scandal. None. As for who said
what on Sunday talk shows, so what? In a very confusing intelligence
environment, some initial reports proved to be inaccurate. Big deal. No
one was instructed to lie about a video. Ambassador Rice was given some talking
points, most of which were accurate, a few of which turned out not to be. Human
beings make mistakes. Now that that's done, let's talk about the
The difference is that a Democrat is in office. Nobody expects a Democrat to be
held accountable. Look at Clinton. Look at the Kennedy brothers. Look at
Reid. Look at Pelosi.Thank goodness Republicans are held to a
higher standard. At least that proves that some elected officials are EXPECTED
to be truthful and honest.
re: procuradorfiscal"And, whatever you do, don't you dare
say anything that might affect Hillary's chances of succeeding Obama and
becoming a contender for the "Worst President Ever" award."Sorry, but not even in your wildest tea party/fake news led dreams will anyone
ever take that award away from Bush. Keep hoping though.
Mike Richards: "The difference is that a Democrat is in office."No
kidding, The republicans spent 100 million investigating Clinton, and only 30
million on 911, I can see the difference.No amount of money is too much to
try and remove a democratic president once elected.Higher standard?
Reagan's Iran Contra, Bushes higher standard, Swallow's higher
standards that's laughable, Where Mike? Cause I don't see it.
In the words of whats-her-name--"what difference does it make now".
I'm still awaiting word from BO as to what they found out happened.
Investigation complete yet? Holding my breath--help!
