Woodward is an interesting guy. If there's a genuine scandal there, he's all over it. If not, he'll attempt to create one.

6. Lies are so big they hide in plain sight. The party known for voter suppression and intimidation now feels targeted? The spectacle of Republicans protesting that its groups were targeted by the IRS, when the only business of some of these groups was to lead the GOP’s 2012 voter suppression efforts, is just unbelievable. The GOP has spent years trying to discourage and suppress voting blocks that it perceives will back Democrats, such as black and brown voters, and students. Its entire "voter fraud" canard is based on policing the polls in myriad ways targeting millions of voters.

But now the GOP is upset—with Speaker of the House John Boehner saying he wants the guilty put in jail—because groups like True The Vote were not given the same tax status as the Girl Scouts? They have spent years in state after state imposing tougher ID laws, criminalizing voter registration drives, curtailing early voting, and on and on.

There are so many reasons why this "scandal" reflects what’s really wrong in our political culture. But watching it unfold literally is like watching the blind leading the blind—and the rest of us have to live with the results of these political subterfuges. This scandal is about the perpetuation of lies and deceits in modern campaigns and politics. Meanwhile, the solution, more transparency and disclosure, is going nowhere.

Someone said benghazi….


It was a republitard….


it only takes a moment of time to find that the republitards are being disingenuous about all of this, much like the trolls they are.

But, here… I've just done some random samples for you here, sorry if you can't, or will not read.

But Seven U.S. Embassies And Consulates Were Attacked Under George W. Bush

2002: U.S. Consulate In Karachi, Pakistan, Attacked; 10 Killed, 51 Injured. From a June 15, 2002, Chicago Tribune article:
Police cordoned off a large area around the U.S. Consulate late Friday and began combing through the carnage and debris for clues after a car explosion killed at least 10 people, injured 51 others and left Pakistan's largest city bleeding from yet another terrorist atrocity.

2004: U.S. Embassy Bombed In Uzbekistan. From a July 31, 2004, Los Angeles Times article:
Suicide bombers on Friday struck the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Uzbekistan, killing two local guards and injuring at least nine others in the second wave of attacks this year against a key U.S. ally during the war in Afghanistan.

2004: Gunmen Stormed U.S. Consulate In Saudi Arabia. From a December 6, 2004, New York Times article:
A group of attackers stormed the American Consulate in the Saudi Arabian city of Jidda today, using explosives at the gates to breach the outer wall and enter the compound, the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement. At least eight people were killed in the incident, in which guards and Saudi security forces confronted the group, according to the ministry and news agencies.

2006: Armed Men Attacked U.S. Embassy In Syria. From a September 13, 2006, Washington Post article:
Four armed men attacked the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday, killing one Syrian security guard and wounding several people in what authorities said was an attempt by Islamic guerrillas to storm the diplomatic compound.

2007: Grenade Launched Into U.S. Embassy In Athens. From The New York Times:
An antitank grenade was fired into the heavily fortified American Embassy here just before dawn today. The building was empty, but the attack underscored deep anti-American sentiment here and revived fears of a new round of homegrown terror.

2008: Rioters Set Fire To U.S. Embassy In Serbia. From The New York Times:
Demonstrators attacked the U.S. Embassy here and set part of it ablaze Thursday as tens of thousands of angry Serbs took to the streets of Belgrade to protest Kosovo's declaration of independence.

2008: Ten People Killed In Bombings At U.S. Embassy In Yemen. From The New York Times:
Militants disguised as soldiers detonated two car bombs outside the United States Embassy compound in Sana, Yemen, on Wednesday morning, killing 16 people, including 6 of the attackers, Yemeni officials said.



Republitards = Obstructionist, Anti-American, Faggoty Good-Old-Boy Cronies plain and simple



Comprehensive listings of embassy attacks located:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_attacks_on_diplomatic_missions

2002 United States Karachi, Pakistan 12 Deaths 2002 US consulate bombing in Karachi
2004 United States Tashkent, Uzbekistan 2 Deaths Tashkent embassy bombings
2004 United States Jeddah, Saudi Arabia 0 Dead Jeddah consulate attack
2006 United States Damascus, Syria 4 Deaths Damascus bombings and other attacks
2007 United States Athens, Greece 0 Dead Embassy of the United States, Athens
2008 United States Belgrade, Serbia 1 Death 2008 Serbia protests
2008 United States Istanbul, Turkey 6 Deaths 2008 United States consulate in Istanbul attack
2008 United States Sana‘a, Yemen 19 Deaths 2008 attack on the American Embassy in Yemen

Embassy attacks are what happens to every country when living in the world. The only thing that will stop the killings is if the world (read the US) started behaving as if the people of the countries the embassies were in mattered a much as the profits gained by having business and embassies in that country.
American exceptionalism is repugnant, and it makes us look like we are completely out of touch with reality, or at the very least have an awful sense of priorities. But I can't blame the one's who fight against American Empirialism…. If you were born in another country that the US or its allies were exploiting you'd do the same. Unless you are going to make the argument that your patriotism only applies to the country "YOU" were "BORN" in.

Jingy,

I see my foray into a deeper conversation failed, but frankly you are clearly missing the point.

You're basically saying a broken ankle isn't bad because there have been lots of broken ankles in the past.

The problem is that Obama, went to bed... when he could have saved peoples lives. Then he covered his ass to avoid blame. All in an effort to secure his political agenda.

 Coz,

No, I'm not saying what you say I say.
I am saying exactly what I said; more explanation may be needed for the weak, here goes:

All this outrage over an embassy bombing and 4 deaths under the current president, why no outrage then for more deaths under the last president.
I get it, you say Bush didn't lie, but I say he did not have to: Faux News did a good enough job of not covering any of the bush bombings, and all the rest of the media followed suit like the good little children that they are.

So, much like this same incident that occurred while Buche was pres, I continue to support the American president (much like the republitards did while buche was pres), while I also realize that a person does not take the job of ambassador without knowing that something like death may occur at any time, anywhere and for any reason regardless of the precautions taken to avoid or mitigate it.

The problem is that Obama, went to bed... when he could have saved peoples lives.

_ Ever heard of "could'a, would'a, should'a"…. Right, hindsight again.
Not to mention, every action the president has taken has been blocked by congress. Imagain for a moment that you are not a pretentious windbag stoking the flames of yet another failed attempt to regain the presidency. But imagine that you are a black president and the only people you have to work with have all sworn to block anything you propose (halting much needed change from being implemented in the United States) Then what could you have done?

Bitching about the sh#t after the fact is pointless, just like when we/I bring up missing WMD as cause for war that ultimately killed thousands without a second thought from the right as they whole-heartedly supported and fully endorsed every war America has ever entered (their campaign supporters all end up winning when a war is started, why wouldn't they support the war?).

That you fail to connect any of these things: Past Buche embassy death without a whimper from any on the right, and now the fake moral outrage exhibited by the right, or the connection between the rights support for all wars and the backer of those war mongering right wingers… these are the things that make me believe that you are bankrupt in more ways that you are ever willing to admit to yourself, and certainly not to the world.

Then he covered his ass to avoid blame.

 Really? The president was to blame for the actions of people inside another country? You have an active imagination (Or else you just don't use your brain for any real thought.)

All in an effort to secure his political agenda.

 Much like republitard fake outrage over this and any event the black press does/doesn't do/say. Do you see the pledge to obstruct the president by those in congress/senate as not having a "political agenda" involved? Do you see that?

Republitards = Failure


And God bless the 4 Americans who went down that day.

 This all makes more sense once you take the "God " out of the picture… Then it becomes what it is, the unfortunate deaths of some at the hands of angry others.

There, that's not so hard to understand, is it?


Republitards = Still Failing

That's precisely the lie Republicans want people to believe. Unfortunately (for them) we now have the CIA Director, the Joint Chiefs Chairman, the Secretary of Defense and the commanding general on the ground at Aviano (the nearest fighter base) saying that nothing could have possibly been done in time to prevent the four American deaths in Benghazi. Of course, facts are just terribly inconvenient for Republicans--which probably explains why they routinely ignore them.

You can tell bluering was once a brilliant military commander because of his outrage that the President didn't throw an incredibly small number of unprepared troops into a fight against an unknown enemy in an unsupportable position leaving other targets vulnerable to the possibility of even further assaults. (Maybe that's why he's the Commander in Chief, bluering, and you're just an angry longhair raging on the internet.)

Obama don't know sh!t about commanding an army or any such.

Give it up people.

The guys is a politician and doesn't know sh!t about fighting in combat.

You people are stupid drones.

The whole benghazi debacle was a covert operation to funnel arms to the Syrian rebels.

There was some deep sh!t going on in that event and nothing you've seen so far with this lame bullsh!t that the majors News fools are even reporting.

God are Americans fuking stupid .....
