    I agree with Jon Stewart in my own words.

    If Benghazi was some type of conspiracy for polical gain, (I have no idea how) I will be right there with the Republicans with my pitch fork.

    Now if there were spending cuts made on embassy security in order to make this administration appear weak for political gain. I will have a problem with Chaffetz and others who cut the funding.

    Unfortunately, I am seeing a lot of red using peoples lives for political gain.

    It is becoming evident that the president believes his best defense is not answering the questions, but a good offense. In court, the opposing attorney would simple say, I move the president's answer be stricken as non-responsive to the question.

    Ashamed of what? Where are the GOP lies on this? The British protected their people, and we didn't. Let's get a commander who can do the job.

    What is it Obama?

    A political side show, or a video of Muslims?

    How is it the British knew to get out, and save their people, while our leaders are in the fog, asking "what difference does it make"?

    How many liberal leaders does it take to change a light bulb?

    How incompetent is a President that gets his intell at the same time the American people do. He didn't know what was happening in Benghazi until the next day. He found out about the IRS issue from the public news on Friday with the rest of us. He didn't know about the gun running to Mexico until the public news broke the story.

    Ah that is the reason for the illegal wire tap of the AP. He is trying to get the news stories before we do so he can sound competent.

    One can only hope and pray congress somehow roots out Barack's guilt and corruption in both Benghazi and the IRS targeting and bullying the Tea Party. I would say that there is perhaps a 20% chance congress can get to the truth ..due to the skill that Barack possesses in cover up and concealment...the man is a wizard plus he has the media to protect him and provide cover.

    The British closed their consulate in Behghazi because of terrorism.

    What does Obama do? In spite of the fact we had a consulate in Tripoli, Obama sends ambassador Stephens into the hornets nest in Behghazi with minimal security and then cuts the security from there. Every time Stephens requested more security his requests were denied or they cut security further. When the consulate actually came under attack rather than sending in special forces, they order them to stand down and send in a drone with a camera.

    The stream video to the situation room in the White House. Sick, sick sick.

    How is this any different that what King David did to Uriah?

    The main stream media should be ashamed of themselves for ignoring this horrible tragedy to make sure that their man was re-elected.

    This President doesn't know reality when he sees it or hears it. He will send his daughter on a spring break to an area classified as dangerous. Not dangerous in Florida or California but as in the rebel area of Mexico. In a recession that is the worst since the 1930s according and campaigned by him, he and his family take extravagant vacations with their elitist friends on our dollar. He doesn't sit down with people of reality. He sits down with Hollywood and Broadway people that have been extra screened to ensure they will not throw credibility on him which he has to defend. He is spending his efforts today after his barrage by his Ambassador yesterday on television audiences.

    He is on a defensive mode forever. He has important things to do and tries to justify Fast and Furious, Behghazi, IRS, CIA directors, and other detractors. He is finally realizing that Integrity is what he should have been wearing on his shoulder instead of a chip that everyone is after him. He is the top Executive of the United States and is responsible for our country and the Constitutional laws of the United States of America.

    He talks as though they told the truth about Benghazi right from the beginning.
    Soooo...how does he explain the movie trailer story he told for weeks after in speeches to the UN and along the campaign trail?
    If the AlQueda connection was known and told from the beginning, what was the point of Susan Rice's story on the Sunday shows?
    Obama's so very confident statements today do not agree with what he said back then.
    It would be pathetic...except that so many people are lapping it up as truth.
    Maybe Candy Crowley can do an encore and help him out.

    This administration revised talking points?

    Revising talking points is high treason, don't you know?

    "Obama slams IRS targeting, defends Libya effort"

    What a joke! And you wonder why the public has completely lost its trust in the main-stream media.

    Here's the reason why: Because they all work in unison to protect the liberals.

    You have two huge scandals which both point right back to the man in charge, and the media deflects them.

    The Deseret News is just as bad as them all...because they refuse to criticize THIS president. They have also buried stories that would have damaged Obama's reputation. That is also scandalous and it shows the level and extent of corruption across this nation.

    With apologies to the Bard, something is rotten in the White House.

    Is there any credibility left here? 12 revisions to the talking points. I wonder if it will take more than that to admit the truth. Nixon said I am not a crook. Will Obama ever say I am a crook?

    Yet the IRS targeting happened under Obama's watch.

    This President has used that same line multiple times but he never gets down to the nitty-gritty publicly. Instead, the whistle-blower type of people are thwarted in their professional duties by the politicians in their chain of command and especially Agency attorneys who have more power than those in charge.

    The power of the federal government to thwart what should be uncovered is still alive, even afte the 1972 Nixon dealings. However, in that timeframe, there was actual bi-partisianship as the Democrats had absolute Senate and House majorities and they wanted to bring down the President in his errors and actions.

    The actions were bad enough but the lying was worse and that the processes took down Vice-President first and then the President in the Hippie and John Kerry, Bill Clinton generations.
