    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.

    The difference is in the response.

    That’s different, it was bushy then and the republicans don’t care now just as they didn’t care then.

    Can any of the RWNJs who can’t seem to let an opportunity to make a mountain out of a mole hill to try and thwart progress in America in order to try and make the President look bad please explain how how Benghazi is different than the attacks during king george’s reign? I know that was then this is now, that was W and this is that uppity black man, I get it, you hate President Obama so much that you will do anything, regardless of how stupid it makes you look, to try and make him look bad and obstruct him at every turn in order to ensure this country fails and by association President Obama fail.
    But can you please have the decency to step out of your Faraday cage where nothing but right wing blather gets in and explain to us, in detail what you think went wrong and why, how it could have been prevented (pay attention to the realities of sovereignty when it comes to an embassy versus a consulate), who was supposed to provide security (pay attention too to how similar consulates are secured elsewhere and provide substantiation there too.) and tell us how the reaction could have been different. Please provide substantiation to your claims and pay attention to the realities of the resources available. Only when you have all the answers can you claim someone else could have or should have done something different. Here’s a head start on facts, no one was ordered to stand down, they were ordered to wait until sufficient equipment and assets were assembled. That’s like telling a pilot not to take off in his fighter until he has a full load of fuel on board. You righties would get half the facts from your propaganda masters and then believe and parrot “But he was told to abort his mission” That is how you righties twist things and get a bad name and lose all credibility. If you can provide substantiated factual details you will persuade some minds. I am confident I don’t know everything about this incident, but I am also confident that the republicans are simply using this tragedy as an excuse for their intransigence, obstruction and just plain childish behavior. But at least I am open minded about learning and I admit I don’t have all the facts. If all you can do is what you’ve been doing, trashing the president because your party feeds you that line, then you will forever wallow in the mud you rake and never be credible, contributory members of a civilized society.
    To this I challenge you republican parrots, step out of the shadows, do some research and actually work to change minds. They are out there (the facts and the minds, some of them open) are you of sufficient integrity and honor to defend your party’s position, or are you simply a partisan shill? I don’t expect any to truly take my challenge, as it would mean work, and it might mean finding out that the propaganda fed to you by your party and it’s mouthpieces is wrong but I have great confidence certain members will attack me or my challenge thereby demonstrating their incompetence, ignorance or simply lack of integrity.

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

    @Peabody-Martini

    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?

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    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?
