    It would be more accurate to portray him as the abusive husband who comes home and beats his wife with high taxes and then cowers outside the home, because basically a wife beater is a coward.

    Perfect depiction of some of the loonies who post here.

    There’s no way the troglodytes can spin this to their advantage, so they rely on continuing to be exactly what they are.

    Both of these conditions cannot be true. Only the party that constantly denies climate change, evolution and science can think they are. (And, of course, neither of them are true.)

    Regarding Benghazi, yes, let’s not forget. Let’s not forget that SIXTY Americans were killed in embassy and consulate attacks under Dubya. Where’s your outrage over that?

    First off, I could not find a word about 60 americans being killed in Dubya. Second, the problem with Benghazi is that NO troops were sent to help after NINE hours. That’s pathetic. The only men who moved were Glenn Doherty and Tyson Woods, and that was against orders. Benghazi wouldn’t have been a problem if the president had acted, but he hadn’t, and still keeps lying about it. But whatever, What difference does it make, right?

    “Regarding Benghazi,…”

    The significant difference is that the deaths in Benghazi were caused by the negligence of the State Department in the presence of a strong probability of an attack occurring on the Benghazi facility. They cannot be blamed directly on Obama any more than the losses under Bush can be blamed directly on him..

    Here you go:

    The Benghazi attacks (the consulate and the CIA compound) are absolutely not unprecedented even though they’re being treated that way by Republicans who are deliberately ignoring anything that happened prior to Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.

    January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

    June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

    October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.

    February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

    May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

    July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.

    December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.

    March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)

    September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.

    January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.

    March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.

    July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.

    September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.

    I’ll also note that these are easy to find with a search on EMBASSY DEATHS BUSH — several results come up.

    You have to want to not find something that easy.

    Unless of course your search engine is running through FAUX Noise.
    THEN it will ONLY come up with things that show that Democrats are evil incarnate, and that ALL Republicans can walk on water!
    “Fair and Balanced”. Yeah. Right.

    @masterskrain

    Ah, nice to see you again Masterkrain, I hope you’ve been well. First off, regarding any suicide bombing, how the hell are you supposed to stop that? That’s not a nine hour long siege, with the ambassador begging for help. I’m not denying that people have been killed over the years by attacks, I’m saying that in this particular case, help never came. Even the CIA compound was told to stand down. There was a Marine base that could’ve brought men over in an hour. There was a drone in the air, ready to strike, but the order was not given. That’s actually how Woods and Doherty died. one was holding the laser to guide the missile while the other was covering. Unfortunately the mortar fire killed them. The fact remains that Obama was notified, and did nothing, for nine long hours; but you know who saved the besieged Americans? friendly Libyan militia. They should’ve been rescued much sooner, and by an AMERICAN force, not a foreign one. Likewise, watch any interview with Obama on Benghazi, he always says that he has things under control, and that the investigation is going fine. Despite ONE AND A HALF years, nothing has still been uncovered, and no one has taken real responsibility. That’s the problem, of course, our president is busy golfing to worry.

    Quick question, to satisfy my own curiosity, what source did you use to get your info?

    I proudly endorse the 2-term limit. There is nothing wrong with limiting the president’s power. Now just to move on to Congress….

    President Bush didn’t try to cover up the terrorist attacks while he was in office. Obama did! After all, it didn’t agree with his statement “Bin Laden is dead & Al Qaida is on the run”. Also, “The war on terror is over, we have won”. And the election was coming up. God forbid the anointed one should be proven to be wrong! So lie, lie, lie & cover it up.
