(CNN) – Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the way the Obama administration has handled the deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, a new poll shows.

The CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday indicates only 37% are satisfied with the administration’s response to the September 2012 assault that killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya.

How many of the other 4 in 10 don’t even know who Ben Gazzi is?

“Sixty-one percent of Americans surveyed think the administration has generally been dishonest in providing information about Benghazi in the aftermath of the attack.”

There’s that split again. No matter what he does, 40’ish percent will jump on the grenade.

We need two countries. It is the only solution.

Mob rule works for them until it doesn’t.

What happened in Benhgazi has nothing to do with how the public, educated or not educated and informed, views it.

It was an international incident which has far reaching consequences, and has been stifled by everyone including Issa.

No. We need government which respects the rule of law. The lawless can then get their own second country or not, whatever they want.

We have a Constitution. It works.

No one but Rinsey misses Romney.

I get that last time people got scared of Obama who actually has more in his record conservative than Mitt. I have somewhat made peace with it. But this time there is no excuse. 3 years out and people already pining for a rehash? Nauseating.

Think what had to happen to get the average American to notice. We need to capitalize on this and start winning in borderline states. How many FReepers have committed to running at the local level?

If we could take over school, zoning, library and other local boards we could move things along.

There are more serious scandals than Benghazi. IRS voter suppression of Republicans ahead of 2012 election AND DELETED EMAILS, for one (This potentially changed the OUTCOME of the 2012 election!!). Release of 5 high value terrorist Taliban commanders AND without notifying Congress (That’s a TWO-FER), for another..

Yeah, but the problem with this an all other such polls is its a measure of the political opinions of people who are smart enough to actually pay attention and have them in a non election year. We have a majority of those. That is not the problem.

The problem is the hordes that dont care who this Ben Ghazi guy is, dont pay federal taxes at all, and rely on celebrities to tell them who to vote for. These dumb masses wouldn’t answer a political poll phone call (although they’d make 20 calls to vote for their favorite American Idol contestant) to save their lives.

But they turn out every 4 years to vote themselves another pail of warm, tasty government slops at the expense of someone else. Oh, and since they have no since of responsibility, they tend to breed like rabbits. They are leeches. You can’t and wont convince them to turn on the Dems because of Benghazi, or the IRS scandal or the VA scandal, because even if they knew what any of those things were, they wouldn’t care. The Dems have the trump card with them...free stuff.

Sooner or later you realize you can’t negotiate, convince or poll a tick. He will never give up sucking the lifeblood from the host. He doesn’t know how to do anything else. You get the tweezers, pull it off and and throw it as far away from you as you can, and learn to stop going through the tall grass in shorts.
