For some reason, I’ve become a big fan of Maureen Down’s writing.

Dowd is framing this as a political game. It’s a way to marginalize what could be an impeachable offense...pretty typical of the liberal media. If this were a GOP administration it’d be 24/7 news...with Dowd breathlessly wondering how deep into the administration the crisis would go.

These people are vile.

Dowd takes the obligatory shots at Fox News, but in fact, the article is a scathing critique of obama, clinton and minions.

Where were Maureen Dud and the New York Slimes on September 12, 2012? Now that Obama is in the oval Office till 2016, Dud and the New York Slimes start to slither out of the close and rear their ugly heads, We know this all along the way. Another story to cover up the cover up that they never reported in September. But what do you expect from one of the many Obama Appartachik. Ms Dud needs to be checked by a licensed psychiatrist because she is both delusional and demented. Dud being defined - one that is disappointingly ineffective or unsuccessful.

On the same level of impenetrability is MoDo’s line, “Some unhinged ideologues on the right cling to the mythology that Barry and Hillary are out to destroy America.” She apparently cannot figure out why anyone would think those two socialists want to destroy our country. It’s as obvious as the reason for the popularity of her writing - in other words, no liberal will ever solve that conundrum.

All liberals are delusional. They have to be to keep “thinking” the way they do.

Nice pic in #10

commanders may have decided to cut their losses rather than risking more casualties.

I don't believe it's in our military's cultural genetic material to refrain from coming to the aid of fellow soldiers and our diplomats.

Risk is something to be minimized through proper planning, not to give excuse for staying home when it might seem to loom large, yet when 30+ of own are in grave danger and under attack by Al Qaeda.

I'm certain we'll ultimately learn that it was not commanders (pl.) that decided to stand down. It could only have been one commander, someone clearly a foreigner to our American military culture: Barry. Others were forced to relay Barry's cowardly message.

A C-130 Spectre gunship was rumored to be just two hours away from Benghazi that night, Admiral Gaouette was relieved for "inappropriate leadership judgment", and Gen. Rodriguez was called upon to relieve Gen. Ham in episodes still enshrouded in secrecy.

Let’s say it for true.

A frustrated lawyer wannabe, whose only claims are “I coulda been one of ‘dem d’at brought down Nixon”, milkiing money from people in phony real estate scams, pushing a healthcare deal that was re-written by her challenger to the Office of The President, making sure that the military folks assigned to The White House know they were less than “Ye Olde Porch Monkey”, including dodging flung ashtrays by her, somehow having Vince Foster end up dead inside a White House rolled-up carpet in some park outside the building, and stealing over half the furnishings from The White House - including certain keys on keyboards of the installed computers in The White House.

How the heck does this make her qualified for her FORMER position of Secretary of State, or even be considered for a possible Presidential candidacy?

Now, with Benghazi, she had her 3 A.M. phone call, and had it transferred to voice mail.

She has committed treason, by allowing the American compound in Benghazi, which represents American soil, to be overrun by a bunch of folks that her boos, Obama, said doesn’t exist anymore, without a shot fired in defense.
