One of the biggest cover ups in U.S. history. I don't see why it should impact the election.

If nothing else does, Benghazi had better bring down the evil Marxist.

Most Obama voters...CNNCBSABCNBC or MSNBC viewers...are still asking, “Who is Ben Ghazi?”

I’ll bet that 70% of the voters have no idea what Benghazi is. Many would probably think it’s a sports car.

Yes... and YES !!

It will impact those who already know about it to get the vote out.
Those who don't know bout Benghazi are those who will vote for Bozo anyway.

I'm hoping somebody manages to interview the Obama Phone Lady a week from this morning.

"Romney sucks!"

No, ma'am. He's Mr. President-elect!

I seriously doubt that the loss of an Ambassador - under questionable circumstances - will matter much to the average voter.

This election is coming down to the same as usual - a dead heat. If Romney wins FLA and VA we have a run at Ohio. Winner of Ohio likely wins...but Mitt could win without Ohio. (fingers crossed)

My socialist, liberally-educated son knows all about Benghazi...not from Rachel Maddow, who he watches every night, but only because I’ve told him details over and over...told him the media is complicit in the coverup by blacking story out... how they are stalling to get through the election.
Frustrating...like talking to a brick wall....more frustrating....he says if Benghazi was really as serious and as bad as I’m making it out to be...Romney wouldn’t be stalling or covering up for Obama...by now he would definitely be all over it.

Said this before and I’ll say it again...IMO, he’s right.

Libya is a tar-baby for Romney. He is right to let conservative media and others to pursue. He was sidelined by his first response. Obama-media is waiting to pounce on ANY word Romney has to say regarding Libya... and they will denounce him as politicizing the deaths of Americans. Sorry I disagree with the frontal assault approach re: Romney re: Libya. Conservatives are getting the story out. Romney needs to adhere to Presidential behavior and that would not include outing sensitive operational information re: Libya (whether truly sensitive or not...but the media will paint it so).

It was great to see Greta get back in the Benghazi story with such a powerful, damning interview with Bing West worked into the middle of her storm coverage.

She wrote down a list of the players in the room (Obama, Panetta, Dempsey, Ham) and asked West “Where was the breakdown?” and West said “At the top with Obama”!

Pow!

Heard someone say in the family about a week ago " why are Republicans making such a big deal out of Benghazi ? they are making a mountain out of a mole hill "

I told him about a hour later " no one died in Watergate or Abu-Grapes " ..... he hasn't spoken a word to me about it since because he knows I am right.

It's not that your son does not understand the basic argument about Benghazi... he does understands it's wrong.
The problem is ? their ( liberal ) agenda gets in the way and they don't like the answers you give him.

Sandy has given Obama two days of respite from the questions about Benghazi, but that’s all he is likely to get. The story will continue up to election eve. He can’t run, he can’t hide, and his lies will be exposed.

When Liberals or Democrats want to strike up a conversation and talk to you and want answers from you ? everything is fine up until you tell them the truth.
They hate hearing the truth... that's when they get all bent out of shape..... they don't want to hear it.

“Said this before and I’ll say it again...IMO, he’s right.”

Governor Romney would be a fool to publicly jump into this black hole with only a week to go. The media is laying in wait.....ready to accuse him of not having the right intel.....shooting first-aiming later....or being unpatriotic...or any variety of presidential disqualifiers. If the media puts on a full court press to discredit Romney, we’re sunk. Then there’s the mystery man....General Petraeus. What in the hell is going on with him and why did he support the protest/video explanation ? Why did Hillary?This is a hornet’s nest and I’m sure the good governor is not being offered any reliable information. Our goal is to vote Obama out. If he gets re-elected, he will be impeached on this issue. If Romney wins, he’ll pursue it because we won’t let it go. What happened happened. Nothing can change it. All we can hope for is someone is brought to justice.

Thanks STTF. It seems like a lot of folks might be missing this rather strong set of statements by the good Marine to Greta, on what the deal really entailed. Or should I say lack of deal. SOMEONE SCREWED THE POOCH. Tis that simple as most of us are already rather painfully aware of.
For our broader viewing audience, perhaps this particular Fox New's video might be more circulated. To perhaps provide others with a source they can share with others world wide.
The CSPAN Video October 31, 2012, of Greta interviewing Marine Bing West, can be found here.

IMHO. One of the most recent set of statements on the death of our four patriots as has come out. With that. I logged in after reviewing the Fox News broadcast a few times and perhaps thought a few with a wide ping list might reproduce it accordingly. Your choice. No ill feelings in any way if none want to take it on. I no longer have long rather extinct ping list to depend on. I'm signing off. But all who read please do have a great upcoming day. God is good.

I think Romney is stalling and avoiding it because BO is a pathological liar who has the entire establishment media stalling and covering for him.

His base is so naive he can’t even reach them.

he knows just what he’s doing.

Any day you don’t see RR splattered all over the news for doing somethin awful, real or imagined, either way will do, is a good day on the trail.

I agree. Liberals may not be following the details, but they have heard enough to know it is an election killer.

One such commie told me, "no one cares about Benghazi"; not "no one knows about it."

In liberal-speak, that means, "it's real bad ju-ju, and our propaganda machine is going to work 24/7 pretending it is nothing."

No need for the “sarc/” tag. The news coverup of what happened in Benghazi is almost complete, and has been very successful. Only that “right wing Obama hating news network Fox” is reporting on it ... is the answer you will get from the 1 in 100 people you ask who have actually heard of Benghazi.

This Libya incident will not hurt Zero in the least, and the storm can only help him ... sorry to say.

I caught part of msnbc Ed show where he was actually talking about Benghazi...just enough to ridicule McCain for speaking out about it.

It’s frustrating, but I guess no matter what Romney does, if they can’t keep the topic quiet, the msm will find a way to spin it.
