    I am tired of hearing about this true witch hunt of this qualified ambassador.
    These republicans I tell you can't deal with defeat very well.
    I wonder is it that she African-American and hold herself in respectable manner is the reason they are going on about this or is it that she is a Sister who is respected that they can't handle?
    The economy is about come to a screeching halt and they have no other thing to do but drag this poor sister through all this.

    At the rate they going we might not have a solution to this and here we go again through another depression not a recession.
    As positive I am , I got a feeling nothing will get done and them triggers will begin to kick in and the gates of hell is open.
    The problems in the Middle East and here with Sandy is not making it any easier.

    man.. turn off that dam TV.. and do what you gotta do. Just unplug it.. and leave it unplugged. That world in that piece of furniture is an alternate reality that will consume your genius with things that are of no consequence at all. The Real world is outside your door. Step out of the Matrix. You got stuff to do.

    Try this: Turn your TV off, then sit on your couch and watch the turned off TV for 30 minutes.. just like it was on.

    Just seek out other sources of real news...

    I. e., commercial TV network news shows are called 'infortainment' for a reason, y'know?

    FYI...

    the devils are trying to get kerry in at SOS instead of rice, why?

    if they can get kerry to give up his seat in the senate it will be filled by a special election in mass.
    the devils will run scott brown (again) and hope to get him elected. this will affect the control of the senate.

    that is the game.

    Well blazejay, your conversation reveals you are up on Politics, a good thing... And I'm with you, enough already about Benghazi and Rice, smh...

    Some Republicans have no shame, especially Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham. The senators' attacks on Ambassador Susan Rice over Benghazi are relentless. Why? Because of something she said on Meet the Press? Really?

    Peace In,

    Nobody is above or beyond criticism etc., but even if there is a double standard being applied, I also do feel as well as think the death of a U. S. ambassador does justify a congressional inquiry etc.

    This is so much gossip over the back fence level bantering...

    I'm not down with any of it, i. e., since the reelection of Obama in and of itself doesn't imply nor suggest he'll end U. S. meddling in other peoples business, up to and including which regimes get toppled...

    Do try to get your minds around how many western nations backed the very people those associated with the 'arab spring' rose or are rising up against...

    FYI...
