    It had to be so frustrating for Mitt Romney with his stringent ethics and integrity to have anything he said played by the Chicago Bunch, the White House, the Press Corps at all levels and most any media outlet critical about anything Mitt Romney said. If you go back to the articles, 100s of articles the mainstream media put out about Benghazi, it is appalling to now see that there was even more involvement by the Administration than was officially known. You would suppose that there was involvement from the highest level, including the President to be out on the campaign trail. Oh, those are only two diplomatic corps people and 2 CIA agents. He only got the Nobel Peace prize for doing what? It was far from peace when the President had the Ambassador detailed to Benghazi on one of the most hostile days for the United States of America in Libya since the Pan American flight was downed over Lockerbie. We took more offense at Libya over that than this Administration has shown toward Libya, the brotherhood type of people mixed with a little Al Quaeda. The President never hinted why the Ambassador was in the hostile city.

    At no time did the Obama administration know what the Obama administration was doing.

    "Osama bin Laden got him to the situation room. 4 diplomatic and CIA people don't. Where was he?"
    Were there any high profile people that could give him political advantage around? Then he was golfing or filling out his fantasy football line up for the week. Prince Obama isn't going to waste his time on American embassadors. Where's the payoff? To think that he would is "offensive" on your part. Oh wait, no, it's offensive if you thought he DIDN'T care and tried to cover it up...wait, this is all so confusing.

    I really am starting to hate these AP articles. Their bias becomes more and more apparent every day, and their "objectivity" is decreasing at an alarming rate. Any thought that the AP is anti-Obama after the AP scandal seems much less hopeful that they are seeing Obama for who he is; the AP is still solidly backing Obama.

    I guess according to this article we are to come to conclusion that this one is OK because there have been scandals in the past. Then it concludes that even with such scandals as Benghazi, the AP scandal, and now this, it is not enough to torpedo Obama's presidency! So Watergate was so horrible, but Benghazi "happened such a long time ago it doesn't matter". This is sickening!

    One thing this process that Benghazi has is the automated or computerized system the IRS was supposedly using for their various tactics are tracked and backed-up. They aren't just e-mails that the top government leaders held back for 9 months in their very transparent administration. For the fact that this President told not only the nation but also the Congressional elected officials in the House and Senate to pass the law and then read it, he is telling the world he is above the law. That is what that message is really saying. The law makers should have read the law. To state that from his own mouth, said how controlling he is in his life, sort of like playing street ball in Chicago or even Indonesia. Rules are for other people not him. That is how we get Fast and Furious and other unapproved methods through the system. The system of Congress is meant to protect people. When this President pushed his agenda on healthcare through that way, he thinks he can even get through Benghazi without being responsible. Osama Bin Laden got him to the situation room. 4 diplomatic and CIA people don't. Where was he?

    ute alumni---I think Larry is in Nevada.

    Just heard the IRS has seized ten million medical records in preparation for Obama Care. The lives of many older people will hinge on the decisions of these clowns.

    curious, the picture shows Curly and MO but where is Larry? These two know much more than they are telling. Remember, Watergate took a long time to heat up but did catch fire. One can only hope that the obama media wakes up

    Re: HS FAn

    Yes there is something. Turns out that many Democrat Senators asked for the IRS to look into these fundraising organizations, and they explicitly asked for the one that were conservative. Soooooo, this may get a little higher up the ladder of liers than you and other Obamaites want. But don't think we anti Obama types want any impeachment talk. The last thing we want to do is give Biden a running start to the White House.

    In the end, Obama and Holder will be accountable for nothing, and Bush will be blamed.

    Obama gives the appearance of being an average everyday citizen who is just as unaware of things as we are. He is just as surprised, unknowing, and angry as we are.

    The country will believe this, and Obama is blameless. Fooling people is rather easy.

    Still nothing here to suggest it was a "top down" witch hunt against Tea Party affilates. Seems BO has taken the right steps and forced the current director out. Conservatives will try hard to create a smoking gun but will probably come our looking like mean spirted, incompetent fools. Just another way to try and run the clock out on BO and his leftist, marxist agenda.
