McCain says Rice is not "smart enough" to be Secretary of State but Sarah Palin is absolutely smart enough to be Vice-President (?) Here's an idea, John, try showing up for the classified briefing on the subject instead of holding press conferences complaining that you're not getting enough information. Bitter old man.

This White House is nothing but a spin factory as exemplified by the press conference when the President acted indignant at questions regarding Susan Rice's lies 5 days after the White House knew it was an al Qaida attack. Their whole campaign was based upon exaggerations, embellishments and inventions. Ironically they accused Romney of that. Best defense is a strong offense. But the main media and Obummer's disciples don't really care. Power and handouts to the left is all that matters. Afraid the country is at the lowest level in terms of being transparent, facing up to our problems and working with everyone to solve the mammoth problems that we have. It’s all about image, manipulation, and avoidance of responsibility. This is going to be a painful 4 years to watch for anyone who is concerned about unemployment, jobs, debt, foreign affairs and an efficient government.

The CIA provided the initial talking points based on their "best initial assessment".

You know what, comsen? Lapses is security happen. They've happened to every administration going back to Reagan and before. And yes, it's tragic when they do. But nothing - not even the next four years - could be as painful as the one on Sept. 11, 2001. So just give it up already, your side lost. Quit whining, it hasn't even been 10 days and it's already a very old and stale song.

Isn't it odd that members of the House came out of their closed door meeting and stated that the CIA brief that went to the white house had nothing in it about the video. It stated it was Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists. When they were asked who would have changed the wording in the brief to point to the video they were told it had to be someone in the white house because that wasn't in any of our reports. I cannot wait until the whole truth comes out. I want to see how you libs try and spin it when it is proven that the president lied to the American people. Multiple times.

Close to 4500 Americans died in Iraq and most polls put the death of Iraqi civilians who died in the war at over a 100,000....These people all died over a lie about WMD's.Whatever happened in Benghazi that cost the lives of the Ambassador and his guards happened in Africa the President called it a terrorist attack and repeated it during his debate with Romney,lies are strictly the former presidents baggage.

mitts... Tragically 4 people died in Libya. Because of Bush's multiple lies nearly 5,000 troops died in Iraq. Spin that.

I get so sick of you libs when you bring up Iraq and WMD's. There were multiple dems that thought they had it, Hillary Clinton included. There were multiple other countries that thought they had WMD's. Here is the part that you forget (conveniently) UN Resolution 1441 clearly stated the use of force by a coalition was authorized if Saddam did not let the inspectors into Iraq. If he would have allowed them in, there never would have been a war. Sorry, but Obama did not call it a terrorist attack for 2 weeks afterwards. He lied in the debate about it. I will bet that he gets impeached.

Why is it whenever I post a rebuttal with proof it never gets posted on here.

---I get so sick of you libs when you bring up Iraq and WMD's. There were multiple dems that thought they had it, Hillary Clinton included. ---Actually a lot of us moderates (republicans and democrats) and probably the libs are getting pretty disgusted with the ignorance and arrogance that we're hearing from a certain MINORITY segment of the population and that's why Obama won the election. WMDs? Falsified information given to congress and at the UN. Saddam and al qaeda teaming up? A farce. All a big lie to get us to go into IRAQ when the true enemy Bin Laden was in Afghanistan. How many attacks occurred under GWB? 11 on embassies, consulates, and on diplomats occurred under bush and least you forget the LARGEST TERRORIST attack ever on US soil occurred under Bush. You want me to keep going? Conservatives have NOTHING....just like "Mission accomplished" speech and banner.
