I agree with the writer on this one. In charge of everything, but knows nothing. That's our dear president, his DOJ, Hillary, Lerner in charge of IRS, just so many who just don't know anything. The actual word is called "lying."

We had better get to the very bottom of all of these "scandals" especially Benghazi or "whats the difference" Hillary will be the next president and our country and we will pay a huge price for that.Where was she when the phone rang?? Do we really want Bill back in our house? Hide all of the aides! Trust none of the Liberals, Obama needs to leave our house! He is the worst President since Jimmy Carter and Yes, he and his administration are a bunch or liars, the white house has Zero integrity. Jay Carney must have the worst job in history trying to defend these idiots and anyone who defends them. Have fun with this please!

You must mean 99.99% of leftists shutting off their brains because they believe Obama can say nothing wrong & don't have to listen to them.

It's hard to believe that Obama fans are so invested in him personally that they don't care that he lies to them, or that he violates their rights. Any other person in that office doing these things would be gone by now. Even the most rabid Republicans were calling for Nixon's head by the end, and what he did pales in comparison to the Obama scandals.

Better double-check your timeline.

It wasn't Obama who'd "sold" everyone the WMD-scam and sacrificed the lives of (over) 4,000 members of the American-military...just so Halliburton & Blackwater could make a "killing" in Iraq.

"We had better get to the very bottom of all of these "scandals" especially Benghazi"

Sure lets start with that. What exactly is the allegation? That the President ordered or led the terrorist attack on a diplomatic mission in one of the most dangerous stations on earth? What can you say to someone that thinks that besides "here's the number of the nearest psych ward"?

That he didn't send in John Rambo, or John McClane to stop the terrorist attack? But the most recent Republican Sec Def says that people that think the military could have responded to the attack in real time have a "cartoonish" view of our military capabilities. And even if he could have possibly done that, isn't it the President's CONSTITUTIONALLY mandated authority to make the call if it's worth risking many more lives?

That the President "lied" about who attacked? He clearly didn't, but even if he had, is that against the law?

So I guess what I'm asking is, what's the point of all this except a political attack?

What exactly is the allegation of a single law being broken? And shouldn't a patriotic American be more concerned with attacking the terrorists that carried out the attack, than the President of the United States?

Is the point of this letter that the guy the right has been running around calling a "totalitarian dictator" for 4 years has no idea what's going on in govt, and thus no control over it?

Isn't that something of a 180?

Which is it, the President is the ultimate manipulating super villan and puppet master in chief that pulls every string, and controls everything that happens as he sits back and chuckles while twirling his non existant moustache? Or he has no idea what's going on and doesn't control anything?

Is the letter writer claiming that the guy that they claim is so calculating that he wants to set up 'death panels" to deny healthcare to conservatives, and set up gun registrations so he can confiscate every firearm in the US, and march right wingers off to extermination camps, actually has no idea what's happening?

C Hayes, what has the President done to retaliate against the TERRORISTS? As far as Benghazi is concerned. He sure has lied about it enough thats for sure.This President doesnt come even close to the stature of John McCain or even John Rambo for that matter. You really shoulnt question my Patriotism as you know nothing of it. If it was the most dangerous mission on earth than Hillary should not have denied the requests for more security, But, "Whats the Difference" anyways. The terrorists know that Obamas resolve is weak hence the attack in the first place.

Are you joking? Ever hear of drone strikes? Oh that's right, right wingers went berserk, when a drone strike was used against a so called American citizen, that had thrown down with al Qaeda.

How long did it take George W Bush to capture or kill the person that orchestrated the Sept 11th attacks that killed THREE THOUSAND AMERICANS? Oh, that's right. President Bush disbanded the CIA Bin Laden unit. It took President Obama to get that job done.

And I noticed michaelpaternostro, that you can't answer exactly what law was broken, or articulate in any way, why a terrorist attack on a diplomatic mission in one of the most dangerous stations on earth is a "scandal", while the devastating terrorist attack on 9/11/01 was nothing more than reason for you to vote a second time for President Bush.

You see my problem here?

"his favorite answer to a question:

"I know nothing .""

Since I completely disagree with this characterization, I'd like to ask if someone could provide 5 direct quotes by the President from press conferences in the 6 months, where he says the words "I know nothing" or even "I don't know".

I'd ask for direct quotes, NOT paraphrases with someone's interpretation of what the President meant.

Considering the letter writer says that this is the most common thing the President says at press conferences, and the transcripts for all Presidential press conferences are readily available online, this should be a piece of cake if true.

Waiting. It would seem nobody is able to provide quotes to back up the central premise of the letter.

Apparently another one is debunked.

It's called presidential deniability. Every president has a trusted inner circle that will protect the chief executive; otherwise we would be in perpetual impeachment mode. Ronbo, the conservative savior always used the phrase "Well, I don't remember"

So then you did in fact vote for President Bush twice, and the second vote was at least partially motivated by the events of 9/11/01?
