    - Mr. Lester shows he literally thinks the Benghazi dead are just a game to be played with; either way, yet again exploiting them, no rest in peace.

    That’s not much different than the Rethuglicans using them to try to stop Hillary’s run in 2016. Nobody in Washington cares about them. They were expedient.

    I wonder how many of the Administration’s problems wouldn’t exist if they had just been forthright with us instead of political CYA.

    No, he shows Obama is more interested in Golf than issues facing the Nation.

    Yes, and you support Obama exploiting the slang children of Sandy Hook time and time agan.

    @Sky_Soldier

    It is evident you missed this exchange between NBC News Anchor Brian Williams and Hillary Clinton in December 2012.

    This is what I’m talking about:

    Brian Williams: “Madame Secretary, What are your plans when you step down as Secretary of State in January 2013?”

    Hillary Clinton: “I am through with Politics, and I will never seek any form of Public Office ever again.”

    What part of her response is so difficult for you to understand?

    I understand her statement, it is crystal clear to anyone with an ounce of brain matter, it means Hillary will never run for President ever again.

    Question for you: If you wanted Hillary for President so badly, why didn’t you vote for her in 2008? Why didn’t your Democrat Party nominate her from the Convention Floor in 2008?

    @Genome Project

    If there is a hole in the IRS Scandal, why did the IRS Lead resign? Why is Obama seeking criminal charges in the IRS Scandal if there is a hole there?

    Pretty much.
    []
    Benghazi? They made a scapegoat out of someone rather than admit that the embassy didn’t have enough security and that a series of bad judgement calls led to reinforcements not being sent in.
    []
    IRS probe? One of the people who resigned only had a month left in the organization anyway.
    []
    AP hack? Eric Holder should have been in the hot seat from day one.
    []
    Et cetra.
    []
    Instead of being the most transparent presidency ever, the Obama administration has been nothing but one solid smokescreen.
    []
    The signs were all there during the 2008 elections (such as his “That’s above my pay grade” quip during the Saddleback Debate), but everyone was so focused on the prospect of a “young and charismatic minority President” that a lot of folks missed it.

    Starting with the Marine holding the umbrella, the White House honor guard is a coveted position and the Marines who get those posts have to work to do so.

    The President playing golf should not be an issue since he is usually networking when he’s golfing and he hasn’t taken nearly as many vacations as some of our past presidents. That said, it’s a 4 to 8 year gig, with a generous life long pension afterwards. I don’t know how much time ANY president should spend ‘playing.’

    As far as Benghazi goes…
    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/299807-report-officials-say-stevens-turned-down-extra-benghazi-security
    Ambassador Stevens turned down increased security twice in the four weeks prior to his death. He was not ORDERED to go to that consulate and his death at this unsecured location has caused ten times the uproar that previous deaths at more secure locations have caused. This has been politicized from the beginning and the more info that comes out, the more it looks like a tragic series of events. Forget the talking points and secure the embassies and offices.

    The military sex assaults are unconscionable and the fact that two men tasked with protecting victims victimize those they are to protect shows the military is unable to respond to this cancer within their ranks.
    ^
    The AP investigation might have been ‘valid’ in why it began, but it was definitely invalid in the WAY it was conducted. News outlets are complaining that sources have begun drying up as a result of this investigation and that is not good for free speech or our nation.
    ^
    The IRS issue is outrageous and someone needs to go to jail. While there are red flags that show up on a form, lacking those warning signs, every form, person, and organization should be treated the same way. The additional questions asked is insult to injury.
    I was told that some of the info the IRS office got was given to the media, but I still haven’t seen any thing about that except for here in GC. Anyone have a link?

    Putt putt golf is fun. But we need our gov’t to stop puttering and start working. These ‘games’ do not employ people, improve our infrastructure, or unite our people.

    The dog.
    Does that represent a Chihuahua thinking about going over the wall into the game?
    That one confuses me.
    Curiously,

    And from that same article from “The Hill”


    “Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) called the revelation “odd.”

    “That is odd to me because Stevens requested from the State Department additional security four times, and there was an 18-person special forces security team headed by Lt. Col. Wood that Gen. Ham signed off on that the State Department said no to,” he told McClatchy.

    “The records are very clear that people on the ground in Libya made numerous requests for additional security that were either denied or only partially granted,” Graham said."

    “The AP investigation might have been ‘valid’ in why it began, but it was definitely invalid in the WAY it was conducted.”


    Just to be picky, I heard this very interesting report on Rachel Maddow that bears listening to as it sheds a great deal of light on why the whole thing came up to begin with.

    I’ve heard that what the IRS did was not technically illegal.
