    He did say he enjoyed the “white stuff” in his 20’s.

    This obsession that the reactionaries have with Benghazi is limited to the fever swamp of AM talk radio and Faux news. No one else cares.

    They better start. Mr. Obama has blood on his hands. When you are POTUS, and one of our embassies is under attack, you don’t just go to bed.

    It was more than "he just went to bed’, they couldn’t find him.

    And where was this anger when during the eight years of the Bush administration there were eleven such attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates, with 52 deaths.

    @jman50

    The difference is in the response.

    You probably lost most people at “Can any of you RWNJs….”

    No one else cares.” Yeah.

    Exactly the problem.

    The American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, in Libya, was attacked on September 11, 2012 .

    No one cares.

    A second assault in the early morning the next day targeted a nearby CIA annex in a different diplomatic compound.

    and still no one cares.

    Four people were killed, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Ten others were injured.

    once again, no one cares.

    So, who was in charge of security? Oh, no one cares. Who was it that decided NOT to respond to request for assistance even though it was “in the area” and “on alert”? Hmmmm, no one cares. And finally, what was the President’s response to the situation and what actions did he take? Oh yeah, no one cares.

    Nope, Barack was “busy” and needed his “rest” so he could get the Vegas to “campaign” and get donations. He went to bed and hung out the “do not disturb” sign. Yep, he for sure didn’t care.

    And if the Commander in Chief, the man responsible for the protection of every single person HE sends on diplomatic missions in hostile territory Doesn’t care to the extent that he is absent from all decision making while an attack on this country is evolving and the murder of HIS ambassador is taking place and then he conspires to cover that fact up does not get your attention then what event will make you open your eyes to the corruption in this administration?

    LOL, you are truly a tool, not for your post concerning this cartoon, but your continued insistence that other provide substantiation when you provide none when you spew forth.

    Your mind is not and never has been open. You accuse others of being shills, yet display the same behavior. When counter points are provided to your spewing, you cherry pick without reading the full set of information and comprehending.

    You seem to have a lot of time on your hands for long obnoxious posts, why don’t you try broadening your sources of information. You tell us you don’t read the liberal blogs, but your talking points and repeated blathering of the same thing over and over again points to the lie.

    You are a cartoon.

    “One of our embassies is under attack”. When did that happen?

    It’s a sad day when Americans (and their “government”) don’t care that an AMBASSADOR was not offered proper security resulting in his murder.

    He was probably under the bed, hiding.

    This latest attempt by Republicans to somehow equate four Americans killed in the most dangerous place on earth to 3,000 killed in the heart of America after being warned is getting weirder and weirder and curiouser and curiouser, Alice. This futile and bizarre behaviour would be funny it it wasn’t so serious, and it is being done by supposedly mature legislators who should know better.
    .
    But to continue to harp on some imagined incompetency of Obama because he did not make another phone call here or there when the critics do not know the full circumstances is just plain weird.
    .
    You would think after hearing from the Head of the CIA and the SOS that they would just let it go and let everyone learn from this unfortunate incident. But no, they just keep harping away hoping to score points for the next election.
    .
    They obviously know nothing of how effective management works. If Obama wanted to completely screw up the situation, he would try to micro-manage it from thousands of miles away without having the first-hand knowledge of people who are there. No, he should just communicate with the top people in the area, make sure everything is being done that can be done, then let them work and hope things work out. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t. There are no guarantees in life in complex situations. What you should expect, however, is more responsible behaviour and less Monday morning quarterbacking from people who should know better.
