How do you run if you don't have a leg to stand on? Just askin'...
The US used to have leaders who could think and speak as clearly and truthfully as Benjamin Netanyahu. There is no doubt that everything of which he warns will come true if the US continues to seek diplomatic solutions, to view the situation as nuanced, and to seek to be viewed by the world as politically correct. There is nothing politically correct about being nuked, and Netanyahu is correct in his warning.
LOL. Good one.

Return To Republicanism?

Seriously?? You can actually read a thought-provoking and sobering article like this, and your only comment is that you think he misspelled a word? Good grief, go read the Huffington Post.
I looked up "crapweasel" in my dictionary but didn't find it.
You seem blinded by your ideology. I guess I can't blame you. My knee-jerk reaction is mostly to defend the Republicans, and I've been embarrassed a few times. But this one, vanman, is one that doesn't seem defensible on any logical or factual basis. Of COURSE the Republicans aren't swearing out warrants for arrests...the hearings haven't even begun. The ONLY hope for your side now is that it will be found to be utterly incompetent. As an American, though, I hope that it will not be found to be criminally responsible for the deaths of three Americans, although I have to say that there is no fact in this episode, so far, that indicates otherwise.
Do you work for the administration, perhaps? If not, you're a good candidate for a job, taking a page out of their playbook by making a complete and utter fabricated statement and trying to get people to wonder if it's true. Darrell Issa never said this and I challenge you to put up or shut up.
What do you want, man? The people who were in positions ready to provide support have testified that they were told to stand down. Further, it is a matter of record that Ambassador Stephens requested enhanced security, and was denied. Want more? it has been universally agreed that the video that our leader referred to in his UN address had nothing to do with the attack. White House e-mails have been placed in the record that showed that the administration immediately looked for ways to misdirect the public and the media from the real reasons for the attack and onto the ridiculous anti-Islamic video. How much substantiation do you want? If this went to a grand jury, they'd probably vote to convict before it ever went to trial!
Seriously, you have to be smarter than that. Regardless of your political orientation, you have to see that this has been a Class A cover up, with the only responses to Republican questions have been eye rolls, and such quotes as "What difference, at this point, does it make"? Far from being answers, wouldn't you say? Here we had a diplomatic compound with a US Ambassador who had been begging for beefed up security for months, and not only was he denied, but security was diminished instead. Then, when it was clear that the compound was being attached, Ambassador Stephens begged for help, and when this plea was related to those in positions to do just that, they were ordered to stand down! Then, when Ambassador Stephens was killed, along with two CIA operatives, the White House and State Department went into full CYA mode rather than taking responsibility. ALL to ensure that Obama didn't look foolish just before the 2012 elections, which surely would have produced a different result had the truth actually been known at the appropriate time. THEN, the president had the unmitigated gall to stand up at the UN and say, not once...but SIX TIMES, that the attacks were attributable to a B-rate video. As though we got what we were asking for. This is such a national embarrassment on so many levels, van1man. It is hard to fathom how any nationally-elected group of so-called smart people could have bungled ANY situation this badly. However, they certainly have given a run at it in their handling of ISIS, Fast and Furious, the NSA spying scandal, the IRS targeting scandal....
More like, "Stand by, men".
