Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton utilized a deputation of liars to promulgate the story that the Benghazi “incident” was little more than a street protest evoked by a reaction to “some horrible video.”

In a remarkable deputation, TOTUS appointed Obama to deliver its message.

For an interesting brain tease this AM, I refer all of you to http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3049381/posts

(Were children smarter a century ago?)

Be sure to go to the original post for all of the tests. Even though there are some errors on this test, I guarantee you won’t feel so smart after reading this article. However, the excuses given in the article are even more interesting.

I'm convinced that Obama's unilateral delay of the employer mandate is unconstitutional and probably an impeachable offense. Congress passes laws and the executive branch is charged with enforcing those laws, not changing them.

"I do."

Deputation - the ceremony undergone by Barney Fife when Sheriff Taylor presented him with his badge, his gun and his single bullet.

Hey, Floyd and Goober, ya’ll comin’ to my Deputation on Friday?

A deputation of deputies is called a posse.

In his Presidential deputation
Obama has the known reputation
To pick cronies & Libs
Who are free with the fibs
And political in their computation.

True, true. But the reputation of the HSA and all of Obama’s blackshirted zombies would improve if they started worrying less about their reputation rates (among the liberals) and more about their deputation rates (among the illegals).....

Working on the meager invoices today
Hoping the customers have money to pay-

Obama’s chattering minions
Are an ill advised deputation-
Nearly everyone is tired of
Their lies and obfuscation

From the IRS to Benghazi,
The scandals far from fake-
As they talk, they tempt us
To give them a hard shake

One that clenches their teeth
And rattles up their brains
Until all the insanity departs
And common sense remains

Maybe a bit, but it is buried under all that other BS that they have begun to believe-a good shaking might get rid of that-it is worth a try...

I got into a little “discussion” today on Twitter with a Kool-Aid drinker, about Benghazi. I asked him why Obama/Hillary/Rice originally insisted that it was a spontaneous outburst that resulted from a video. This genius actually said that this was the best information that they had at the time. Despite aerial photography from drones, and multiple eyewitness reports. But hey, people are going to believe what they want to believe or what they have to believe to avoid admitting that the horse they backed is lame.

Thank you!

What fun that must have been-I hope you kicked ass and took names...

I have never understood willful ignorance, nor have I ever had much patience with it-it is one reason I left case management to happily waste my education working in construction.

I’m totally serious about shaking doing some good, because people like the ones you’re talking about wouldn’t know a drone if it flew into their shower and snapped photos of them that later showed up on the internet on a sexual predator list-they would think it was a prank because it was the best information they had...

Remember, you can nor reason someone out of a position they did not reason themselves into.
