President Lawnchair Cleverly Caves In

Wow, such a surprise that the president who has caved over ... well, pretty much everything ... has again caved in to republican demands . Soon enough he'll start another ground war in response to their demands as well.Wow, such a surprise that the president who has caved over ... well, pretty much everything ... has again caved in to republican demands .

Ain't Over w/out Rosie O'Donnell In A Steel Bikini (1)

Nothing is signed yet. Granted, Newtown took the pressure off of the Fiscal Cliff to offer a Benghazi distraction.
However, if Hillary's concussion can't be generalized, and people start asking hahrd questions again, I'd look for 'unexpected difficulties' to arise.
Then, of course, there is the whole Debt Ceiling fracas, but it's too closely related to the Fiscal Cliff for any real comfort, and what is going to deflect all those pesky questions after that? Can brining in a Senator who can't even figure out in what state to moor his yacht sustain the Benghazi confusion?
Running an unserious government sure is serious work!

What exactly is it that you want from Benghazi? Do you want President Lawnchair to come out and say that he is the new leader of Al-Qaeda and he personally orchestrated the attack so that he could turn our country into a socialist nightmare? Tell me what it is that conservatives are so up in arms about with Benghazi. The attack has been recognized by all relevant levels of government as a terrorist act, and apologies have been made for communicating intelligence information that turned out in hindsight to be incorrect. Conservatives have even managed to drive Susan Rice out of the running for Secretary of State, which now has placed John Kerry as the front runner (with the added benefit of opening up a senate seat in MA for Scott Brown to run for again).

So what more do you want? You bring up Benghazi almost as often as Giuliani brings up 9/11.

Truth? Justice? Facts? You know, the stuff that used to matter.
The POTUS holds the title 'Commander in Chief'. Commanders are not infrequently relieved. The record thus far suggests that this might be one of those times.
Should it not be one of those times, then an actual leader would also want that very thoroughly discussed, and cleanly understood. Ambiguity bites.

When was that, exactly? During W's "Bin Laden's not that important" tenure? During Bill-O's "Did not have sex" phase? Reagan not remembering anything? Nixon's entire presidency? Johnson's fake escalation? Kennedy's stolen election?

How old are you anyway?

Truth

They said it was a terrorist attack. Do you believe it was something else?

Justice

Justice in what way? The attack was in Libya. Do you want us to hunt down the people who did it? If so how do we do that without instigating a ground war?

Facts

What is it that you seek facts pertaining to? At what point would enough facts be released that you would be content? The word "facts" is a pretty nebulous thing to ask for on its own - be more specific, please.

The POTUS holds the title 'Commander in Chief'. Commanders are not infrequently relieved. The record thus far suggests that this might be one of those times.

What exactly do you feel that Obama did that is worthy of impeachment? I don't see the offense here. Please be more specific.

I don't see how posting a link to some guy playing a song makes a difference in this case.
