RE: "He had the unfiltered attention at the debates and blew it, blew it, blew it!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Romney knew that he had two opponents in the debates -- Obama and the moderator. If he had pressed Benghazi, Obama would have shouted him down with more lies, and the moderator would have jumped in to muddy the waters and make Romney look like a bully.

if romney was the right man for the job he would have told the truth about benghazi because it was the right thing to do, and to hell with the lies the "moderator" and his stooge, obama, would have told. he did not mention the treason at benghazi, and still didnt get elected. how is that working out for us? the fact is that the american electorate is now over 50% dependent on government handouts, and will continue to vote for traitors as long as the checks keep coming. the rational response is to let the checks stop as soon as possible. lets get on with the underground economy, tax evasion, and obstruction. remember that the liberals all agree that dissent is patriotic (but only if liberals are the dissenters).

It may not have amounted to much if anything, but I know many of those who silenced Palin in 2008, had regrets after seeing the outcome.

If the GOP doesn't grow a pair soon, we might as well just fold and accept that we are now a Socialist nation dictated to be a very large government, just like the country we fought so hard to gain independence from.

You are correct, however, are we better or worse off today that Romney chose to stay silent on the matter?

I understand what you are saying, but my main point was that the silent treatment and "courtesy" shown in 2008 did not work, so why did anyone think it would have worked again?

We lost in 2008 for a number of reasons which includes "not wanting to be the bully". It's time to be the bully and take the risk and allow the truth to come out and let the chips fall where they may.

Mr. nice guy does not work with Liberals and as we found out, it doesn't work for so called independents either.

Romney may have come across as a bully, but just maybe it would have at least brought some curiosity to the surface and had some look further.

While the soap opera “All the General’s Girls” currently occupies the top spot in the Washington, DC ratings wars, the “Benghazi Chronicles,” with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice in a starring role, continues to enjoy strong ratings – as it should.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney played it safe during the campaign -- refusing to press the many questions surrounding the September 11th fatal attacks on the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The campaign was the perfect forum from which to demand and obtain answers to questions about why the United States was so poorly prepared for...
