Up for Debate: Benghazi talking points

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 12:39am

What do you make of this CNN report that states the intelligence community — not the State Department, Justice Department or the White House — guided talking points following the Benghazi attack?

When blinded by Beaver Fever, the male of our species has been known to engage in fornication with all kinds of persons, places and things....as the pragmatic lumberjacks say ,in the far-North logging camps, "a bung-hole beats a knot-hole".

Rasputin says he has euphoria of financial freedom. Now is this suppose to mean something? We just got the word of a troll whom has been caught in several lies.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/20/12 at 12:29

Speaking of free stuff Rasputin managed to get lots of free stuff his whole life. He's never worked too long at a job. Someone has kept him up all the time.

The Joy of not working - lol!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 12:34

He is enjoying the euphoria of other people taking care of his financial needs.

Has anyone else beside me thought about why all this turmoil has been happening? This Arab Spring thing we started has had unintended consequences, as it usually does. Nothing like this ever happened when Qadaffi was in power. The host state is normally responsible for the safety of foreign embassies on their soil. A handful of marines would not have been able to stop a mob of terrorist bent on taking our embassy.( Remember Teheran?) This is just a wate of time and effort. Another smoke screen to keep from doing the jobs they were sent to Washington to do.

Does this story really have any legs? Is this really REALLY... how the GOP has decided to answer the election??

"GOP heal thy self!" Then start worrying about stuff like this.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 1:54

I agree. Sounds like bitter grapes to me.

By: BenDover on 11/20/12 at 2:30

oneway asks, "if anyone..."... I would answer that anyone who is willing to be critical of Obama does. Most people, it would seem, are unwilling to be critical of Obama on the matter though.

By: BenDover on 11/20/12 at 2:36

Slack... was it you who said you had a Cushman?


By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 2:49

Critical of Obama because there is turmoil in the Middle East? As if that didn't exist before he became president....please. Ben, plenty of the non-tea party commenters here have their criticism of Obama - it's just not the hate-filled venomous kind of criticism that the extremists on the right have. I guess if someone isn't foaming at the mouth, they're not critical enough in your mind.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 2:58

Ben, yes I did. I sold it to a collector at a big loss. If you're planning on buying one, remember its a geriatric market, if you decide to resale. I only received 2 calls.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 3:03

slacker, what do you do with a Cushman?

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:10

nazi, the Cushman Eagle, an old school motor scooter. They were top of the line back in the day, before the Japanese motorcycle invasion.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:13

Cushman in scooters, Harley & Indian in motorcycles.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:17

Same time period that Helen Thomas was ''top of the line.''
Loner had a poster of the vivacious Helen, in his bedroom.

By: BenDover on 11/20/12 at 3:19

I just though you might be interested, slack. I'm looking for a vintage Honda to restore... Early 70's CB 550 - CB 750 most likely. I've got a buddy who was just given an old Harley Sporster that's in boxes and I want something to ride with him when he gets his all clicked together.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:29

Ben, I had a 750, they're fun. You shouldn't have any problem finding one.
If you plan on riding a lot, I'd recomend a modern bike.

Loner: Whether it's upside down or right side up, if you cannot detect a difference between Broadwell or Helen Thomas.....may I suggest a guidedog.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:36

Helen Thomas walks into a bar... orders up a Manischevetini..

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 3:39

On old Harley Sportster? How cool is that!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 3:41

I would love to have a Vespa.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 3:55

nazi, its to dangerous to ride now, somebody talking on phone, or texting will run over you.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 3:59

Yeah, that's part of why I've hesitated buying one. Plus I couldn't decide whether or not it needed to match my pocket protector.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 4:16

nazi, proper Vespa attire.. requires a fanny pack, and aviator scarf.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 4:20

Well....so much for that idea. I don't think an aviator scarf would look right with my pocket protector.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 4:28

The ''Lucky Lindy'' pocket protector, was designed specifically for aviator scarfs.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 11/20/12 at 4:32

Does it come in plaid?

By: BenDover on 11/20/12 at 4:34

Helen Thomas walks into a bar... orders up a Manischevetini...

... to be delivered balanced on the head of another filthy Jew midget.

By: slacker on 11/20/12 at 4:38

Why yes.. Kilt included.

You must be attending the Yogi school of comedy. You said:

Don't recall any Ambassador's being murdered under Bush's administration.

Well, how about thousands of Americans who died in the 911 attacks, and the hundreds of thousands of people who died as a result of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq (the latter without a shred of evidence of WMDs). What about the price of oil sykyrocketing, which had a lot to do with the greatest worldwide recession since the Great Depression?

What about all the people who died because of Katrina, including a friend of mine, because the Bush administration was asleep at the wheel?

Surely you jest!

Bush Junior and his accomplices in crime Cheney and Rumsfeld caused untold suffering and death.

By: yogiman on 11/20/12 at 7:17

Hundreds of thousands, Mike, or millions? Did you count them all? And by the way, an Ambassador is in a different category from a common employee.

But all things considered, death is death, regardless how they're killed.

But a little history should tell you, deaths have been occurring every day since life began on this earth. Too many people simply just can't get along too well. Too many "masters" feel superior to God.

The "Simple Six" has never caught me in a lie. What the "Simple Six" wishes is that they could catch me in a lie.

It is jbeyond their comprehension that a boy from the ghetto could rise to the point that if hamburgers were 150.00 ea that he would still be eating all he want

By: parnell3rd on 11/20/12 at 9:50

Mike Burch, How many people died while Pres. Bill Clinton was "not having sexual relations with that woman"?
About 100 in Waco. 5 or 6 in Utah. About 13 on the USS Cole. How many people starved to death in Somalia? How many died in Serbia and Croatia? Over 3,000 on 9/11 because he would not give the order to kill Osama bin Laden.
You Sir are a HYPOCRITE! You only point out one side of corruption when the average person knows Fed. Gov't is corrupt.
The rest of you libtards are still drinking the kool aide.

By: FaceBook:Emmett... on 11/21/12 at 2:36

The Fraud Boy Potentate sat and watched Americans being murdered. "Talking points" is another expression which means "lies to cover this up". He's a murderous traitor. Anybody who can't figure that out is a nincompoop or as much a traitor as he is.
