Immediately after the attack in Benghazi, there were rumors about an alleged kidnapping setup to exchange terrorist (the Blind Shriek?) for the Ambassador. At the time I thought this was silly, but now, after the current "exchange" of terrorists for a deserter, I am revisiting the Ambassador rumor. If the President had been able to ransom and thus save the Ambassador, it would have been a big boost for his campaign for re-election. Since his plan failed, there was every reason for the Administration to not send aid. 1) The terrorists had been told there would be no resistance (reason for lack of security). The Administration had not counted on two brave Navy Seals coming to the rescue of the Americans. But since the Administration was working with the terrorists, they could not start working against them. Someone might talk. 2) Since the peaceful kidnapping failed, the real reason (gun running) for this facility could come to light. So, hopefully, there would be NO survivors. Someone might talk. 3) The survivors, having survived, have been kept hidden, given new identities, given lie detector tests, and goodness knows what else to keep them from talking. 4) What the Administration was doing in Benghazi was against international law, much less our law, so it must not be known. Destroy the entire compound. Destroy all evidence. Destroy all personnel. Someone might talk. 5) The reason no one was sent to investigate the raid for weeks was that hopefully during that time that the compound was left "exposed," locals would cart off anything evidence which survived the attack. After the peaceful kidnapping (and proposed exchange) failed, the Administration wanted the entire compound and everyone in it to be destroyed so that their malfeasance would not be exposed. Reason enough not to send aid.
I had a hip replacement in March. I spent a month in rehab getting PT and another month getting PT at home. Now it is time for out-patient PT. My surgeon's medical group has a PT program in their facility. When I tried to sign up for it, I was told that they did not accept Medicare for PT. Now I am looking for a PT that does. I think this is just the beginning of what we are going to face from now on.
Every Monday we read about how many shootings took place in Chicago over the weekend. It would be real interesting to know many of the guns used in these shootings were registered to the shooter? I bet none; so how are more stringent registration and background checks going to reduce the weekend violence?
I just discovered Dr. James David Manning last night and spent over two hours watching his videos. I don't know why I had never heard of him before, but if you, like I, was somehow left I the dark, Google him. You will be impressed.

Actually I like it better when he is golfing or vacationing or jetting around. At least during that time he is not thinking up some new way to destroy our great country.

@Paul3686: Obama stole the election (140% voted in one county in Florida) pure and simple. But the reason you have not seen posts praising him is because the uninformed voters who put him in office can't read or write. They learned to recognize OBAMA and Ds after names in order to vote. And vote they did; one lady admitted to voting 6 times. I was talking to an immigrant who is taking his citizenship exam in the near future. He was telling me what he had to know. I propose every voter be given, say 10, questions off this exam of which they must answer 80% correctly before the actual ballot appears on the voting machine. If those new to our country, and excited about becoming citizens, can learn about our constitution etc so can natives.
I think Rs know and understand that; it is the Ds that don't. The Ds think more government spending is the answer; I don't think any of them had Econ 101, or, if they did, it was taught by a liberal prof who believes in big government. The reason Romney got 3 million fewer votes are two-fold: 1. Obama's lies about Romeny being responsible for some woman's cancer death, etc., and 2. Obama giving away the farm to buy votes.
What has any of this got to do with government spending?
