Re: Please convince me, Republicans are not using Benghazi politically.
What do the Democrats do for the average citizen that makes their life better, anything? There must be something.

I know their plan is to make Americans poor, to crash our country, to loot our country, all the while sneering in contempt at us while everything that we built is given away to people in other countries who are inferior to us.

But there's nothing good they're doing for the average citizen.

Let's stay on point though. What are the republicans doing policy wise and not political?
 Quoting: CountryPumpkin

Oh, you are a troll. You know damn well the Republicans have no power except in the House - which is no power without the Senate.

Why don't you go have wet dreams about how much you hate the Koch brothers.

Re: Please convince me, Republicans are not using Benghazi politically.
It was NOT their (Republicans) responsibility to protect the consulate, that falls SQUARELY on Hillary & Barry, with the rank comes the responsibility.

You can continue to believe this is political theater if you are so inclined, it's obvious that you DON'T want to know the truth because you are a "supporter", and that's fine, but at least be honest about your bias!

If it was an isolated incident from the chocolate messiah, you'd likely be more right than wrong. Unfortunately for those of us who actually pay attention, and watch what people DO and not what they say, this has been a pattern of behavior since he got elected.

At what point can we expect him to accept ANY responsibility for his decisions & actions, we are almost 5.5 years into his administration...

 Quoting: milehighmike


I think the consulates across the world asked for more protection but the government voted not to fund that and maybe it was the Republicans fault.

Its just a dog and pony show like most of this stuff is. Both sides are as guilty as sin maybe not about Benghazi but other things as well. Almost all if not all there hands dripped in blood at some point.

Re: Please convince me, Republicans are not using Benghazi politically.
benghazi boils down to a cia operation. the off embassy consulate was cia controlled. that means the congressional ways and means committee was involved, and the house intelligence committee was involved and knew exactingly what the situation was and have as much culpability as anyone. both committees are republican led.

does anyone believe that david petraous was remove from the cia directorship by a sex scandal. another cover story.

Re: Please convince me, Republicans are not using Benghazi politically.
Boy, you people are morons!!!!!

Four Americans DIED including an AMBASSADOR! Benghazi was a front to run guns to a NAMED TERRORIST ENEMY of the UNITED STATES. We had the ability to send troops to rescue the people in the situation and were INTENTIONALLY GIVEN A STAND DOWN ORDER that could only have come from the HIGHEST REACHES OF GOVERNMENT.

I don't care if the people had R's or D's behind their name. It was a DIRTY OPERATION and PEOPLE DIED to hide it.

If you are too stupid, naive, whatever to understand the truth of the matter, please educate yourselves before you make ANY comment.

Republicans in Florida also passed new restrictions on voter registration groups, making it so difficult to register new voters that the League of Women Voters gave up. As Weyrich said, Republican leverage in elections “goes up when the voting populace goes down.”
Other Republican-controlled states did the same, along with new ALEC-written Voter Suppression ID laws to block access to the polls for minorities, poor people, college students, and the elderly.
According to a study by the Brennan Center for Justice, 25% of blacks, 19% of Latinos, 18% of young people, 18% of seniors, and 15% of poor people lack the ID these new laws require to vote.

It’s been a long, brutal struggle in America to expand voting rights to more people than just white men.

Re: Please convince me, Republicans are not using Benghazi politically.
I watch fox a lot, just to see a different side of things, but every time Benghazi is brought up, Hillary's name is brought up as well. Republicans are using it as a case to prevent her from running for future elections. That is all it seems to me instead of focusing on preventing it again.

What are the republicans doing to prevent another Benghazi? What are their plans to end it? If it really matters shouldn't they work on policy to prevent it happen again??

Or does it not really matter so they use it as a weapon against an opponent?

It really doesn't make sense, if it matters to them or not?

Will someone explain it to me?
