Kelley makes a good Repub. Not much more need be said.
Let me see if I understand the objections. An ambassador and three guards are killed at an embassy. Nobama goes to Las Vegas for a fund raiser like nothing happened. Let’s his mouth pieces do his spin on the event for him. Then everything is supposed to be hunky-doriee with everybody. That is everybody except the families that lost there loved ones. Oh and one more thing, they are still blaming Bush for all of there mis-steps.
How quickly the right started ginning up a bunch of bull. The disrespect for those killed by turning their deaths into political fodder is simply despicable.
Condoleezza was the screwup rice, and why doesn’t anyone notice that most of the staff were evacuated from Benghazi?
Republicans should focus on what their constituency really cares about, and can follow the details of , like Lady Ga Ga gaining 35 pounds.
It probably doesn’t matter to you, but I quit reading after this: "Steve, yo’re an idiot .. Sorry someone had to point that out
Rethuglicans in congress."
ET2008, if you expect people to take you seriously you need to present something to rationally convince someone of what you say, not immediately alienate them and allow them to discount all you say as a hostile partisan dialog. It’s human nature…
From Steve Benen at Maddowblog:
She explained that it was too early to draw “definitive conclusions,” but the “best information we have to date” suggested the violence “began spontaneously … as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo” in response to the anti-Islam internet video.
The ambassador then added, “But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that effort with heavy weapons.” Asked about a possible al Qaeda role, Rice said this was unclear, explaining, “I think this is one of the things we’ll have to determine.”
All of that is exactly what the CIA had supplied to her in talking points. The scandal is that the foreign service is seriously underfunded by the house, who would like to drown it in a bathtub; not that Susan Rice reported to the public what was known at the time.
If Republicans EVER want to be taken seriously, they have to start arguing about stuff that’s actually true.
Good. Don’t read them. You’re a German who obviously hates America. We have enough Americans posting here insulting each other without constructive input, we don’t need any Europeans.
Steve,Thank You! I agree with you.
One last time: It is SEAL! Seals are in circuses, like the one McCain and “Gah-ham” are stirring up. BTW, even an EX-SEAL wouldn’t “stand down” if danger was present, even as a contractor: it’s his JOB! (but there wasn’t an order to “stand down” and other folks also came to the scene.)
This is beneath contempt. Base your attacks on the known facts rather than rightwing disloyal mythology.
If things are as you say, then why are all of you liberals so afraid of an investigation?
11 embassies were attacked during the Bush administration and there were 53 deaths and 90 injuries. One of those deaths was an American diplomat – but there were no cries of protest. Same with the budget when the deficit was created by charging two wars and the tax cuts.
Funny how everything changes when a Democrat takes office.
Dubya was so passionate about the Americans who died on 11 September 2001 that he lied the country into an eight-year war against a country that wasn’t responsible for the attacks and ended up killing more US soldiers in that time than people who died in the original incidents. Aided and abetted by a liar who later became Secretary of State.
Oh, yeah. Stupid Me. IOKIYAR.
Steve, please ignore the morons.
Screw you Steve Kelley!
Steve, draw a picture of Obama murdering the Libyan diplomats. Go ahead and tell us how you really feel. He killed them all. Then, draw a picture of him handing out free stuff to all the poor people. New cars, new houses, new everything.
