  1. “Obama dines…” I wonder if any participants in these dinners, from either party, ever takes the time to consider how many elderly and poor American are eating dog food to survive another day? Wait, I know the answer….

    “Obama to refocus..” Some good actually might have come out of Benghazi. These hearings created a need for obfuscation so maybe some attention will be paid to the economy.

    Sickening

    • He’ll drop the focus on jobs once again, but in the meanwhile it says something about him that he finds jobs and economy less dangerous ground to tread than Benghazi.

  2. Witness: State blocked Benghazi rescue efforts . . .What difference does it make?
    Hicks says questions led to demotion . . . What difference does it make?

    Obama dines with House Democrats . . . OH, This is a BIG F’in DEAL.

  3. Benghazi story is already buried. Jodi Arias and the Cleveland kidnappings are creating enough of a diversion. (Wait…aren’t those just LOCAL stories?). What did my low info voter friend email me yesterday? “Did you hear about the cleveland kidnappings?”. I love her to death but she probably thinks Benghazi is the name of a new Indian restaurant.

      I’m just waiting for the Cleveland kidnappings to be tied to the Republican War On Women, and therefore, George Bush’s fault.

      Also, given the current media climate, she may be MORE likely to think that Ben Ghazi is a pain relief cream that recently come-out homosexual atheletes rub on their sore joints after one type of game or another…

    • I thought the same, Kimbly. Even on Fox Benghazi took a back seat to the tabloid stories. Greta just squeezed it in between the murder verdict and the kidnappings.

      • Even Fox, who sort of started all this, backburnered the hearings–Bill led with them, but others had that psycho Jodi sitting there. Or those scruffy brothers–did you see that the police chief pointed out that not all Puerto Ricans were bad? This country is falling apart!

        • Yes, I saw the police chief interview. Do you think they are worried that this story (and the Boston Marathon) may affect the immigration bill?
