President Lawnchair Cleverly Caves In

  • Nothing is signed yet. Granted, Newtown took the pressure off of the Fiscal Cliff to offer a Benghazi distraction.
    However, if Hillary's concussion can't be generalized, and people start asking hahrd questions again, I'd look for 'unexpected difficulties' to arise.
    Then, of course, there is the whole Debt Ceiling fracas, but it's too closely related to the Fiscal Cliff for any real comfort, and what is going to deflect all those pesky questions after that? Can brining in a Senator who can't even figure out
    • What exactly is it that you want from Benghazi? Do you want President Lawnchair to come out and say that he is the new leader of Al-Qaeda and he personally orchestrated the attack so that he could turn our country into a socialist nightmare? Tell me what it is that conservatives are so up in arms about with Benghazi. The attack has been recognized by all relevant levels of government as a terrorist act, and apologies have been made for communicating intelligence information that turned out in hindsight t

          Truth

          They said it was a terrorist attack. Do you believe it was something else?

          Justice

          Justice in what way? The attack was in Libya. Do you want us to hunt down the people who did it? If so how do we do that without instigating a ground war?

          Facts
