Once the 'foreign policy' is settled, there remains only to sell it. If one cannot sell it, ignore it, and sell something (anything) else....Maybe an e-mail scandal?



Obama snubbed Netanyahu, and the Hamas took it as permission to shower Israel with rockets....Hamas ran out of rockets, and Egypt produced a "ceasefire". Clinton jets into town, Susan Rice lies through her capped teeth, and the focus is on? What is placed before us, not what is behind it.....

God, America is dumb...

Saw this earlier......


A nice tribute to those left there to die.
Written by Col. William Bauer, USMC.

"The Battling Bastards of Benghazi"

We're the Battling Bastards of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
defending the country we loved so well.
It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate, 'n scaled th' wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety, 'n stood at th' gate.
Just the two of us, 'n foe by th' score,
but we stood fast to bar th' door.
We called for reinforcement, but it was denied,
so we fought, 'n we fought, 'n we fought, 'n we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
'n Obama didn't give a damn,
just two dead SEALS, who carried the load,
no thanks to us, we were bumps in the road.

Well written!! And yet the ignorant masses re-elected the man. I guess freebies outweigh moral values, shame on us.

Obama warns Republicans rejecting tax offer will spoil Christmas

Obama warns Republicans rejecting tax offer will spoil Christmas | Fox News
Trusted ones we voted for in the past that is now siding with the ones that are trying to destroy the USA,
With Obama care that we cant afford,
How many countries like Egypt Pakistan came to the Sandy rescue?
Yet we continue to give these corrupt countries that constantly do harm to the USA and its interest billions every year and these village idiots including republican ones are now wanting to raise our taxes even more?
Sad days ahead!

As I recall, it didn't work out too well for Christ when he went riding into Golgotha on a donkey.

11Fan, your lack of knowledge fills me with horror. That chimp is an ape, not a monkey. Go and stand in the corner.

Not sure if you have seen this before but someone on one of my hunting
forums posted it.

Interesting how the US President is seen by the Soviet press and how they describe his followers here.

Seems those outside the US can see what is what

Lesson learned. Never give a weapon to a simian. You don't know what they're gonna do.

But back to business. Who's it going to be to replace Hillary? Kerry, Rice? Both of them are traitors if you ask me.

Well I look at it this way. By nature Ambassadors lie, part of their job description.

But what the Obama Administration totally failed to realized or understand, is that one's Ambassador is supposed to lie to the citizens of other countries, not lie to their own.

Also, it never fails to amaze me of the boldface hypocrisy of the progressive, so-called liberals that have hijacked the Democratic Party when they complain about Republicans questioning Susan Rice suitability for becoming Secretary of State, when one recalls what they put John Bolton through when he was nominated to be the Ambassador to the UN.

It's simply because she's black.

Not because she is either incompetent or dishonest about the Benghazi murders, but simply because she is black.

According to the editor of MSNBC.com:

Richard Wolffe Says Susan Rice Part Of ‘Witch Hunt For Every Person Of Color’ Who Has Served Under Obama | Mediaite

Same goes for Holder of the Fast & Furious gun scheme where a Border Patrol agent, an ICE agent, and several hundred Mexicans (and counting) were killed due to the operation.

Or Van Jones.

Or Lisa Jackson of the EPA and it's vast overreach.

Not because they are very, very liberal and very, very incompetent, but because they are black.

At least those second two didn't get people killed. Yet.

Bringing up former SecStates Powell and Rice would be poor form. They were competent people who happened to be black.

Unlike the Obama crowd.

Puh-leez...

Color trumps competence. They were chosen because they are black. Not solely, but predominantly.

Call it "good Racism", or "affirmative action", whatever the name, the template is color. It is also a handy and effective guard against even lukewarm critique.

Gender, same..... Clinton, Napolitano, Reno. Passably competent on the front side, but ultimately not up to it.

It is an "aura" in the Democrat Party that plays the loudest. And loud wins.

Biden, on Obama: "He's so......clean". Absent his color, Obama would by now be struggling to hold his office in the Senate.

Politics is and always has been about appearances, and perceptions. Were it not, we'd actually have heard some decent debate in the campaign. Not Big Bird...

Benghazi.
