  1. RICE: I don’t have time to think about a false controversy. In the midst of all of the swirl about things like talking points, the administration’s been working very, very hard across the globe to review our security of our embassies and our facilities. That’s what we ought to be focused on.


    Locking the barn door after the horses have escaped!

    What about answering the question about why there was insufficient security in the face of a clear threat to the consulate? What about hunting down the killers? Or, are those questions part of the “false controversy”? In essence, Rice said the past is past, that it’s time to suck it up and drive on.

    • These people have so much trouble with three-letter words:

      “Officials in the intelligence community have actually been untruthful both to the American public in hearings in Congress and to the FISA Court,” she said.

      “There have been cases where they have inadvertently made false representations,” Rice replied. “And they themselves have discovered it and corrected it.”

      • Instead of “inadvertently” making “false representations” (that’s lying to the rest of us), why not just say you don’t know the answer to a question? When asking a judge for a warrant to monitor someone, though, cops cannot say they don’t know something, so they have to make specific allegations. Did they just make up shit, only to get the truth after they’d snooped? What’s the remedy for having your Fourth Amendment rights violated based on a lie?

    • If we were to take her words, “false controversy”, verbatim, she is saying that there is NO controversy about the massacre in Benghazi. That’s just not true.
      Whether she’s being defensive or arrogant is not clear, but she hopes to erase any mention of her role in the big lie and false flag that she and the WhiteHouse tried to use to diffuse the issue.

      That she even mentions Benghazi indicates that there is a lot of hidden information yet to be revealed.

      • I think she was talking about the video, but it could be interpreted as if she was talking about the whole debacle. However, if she were talking about the video, that is NOT a false controversy. Our president and secretary of state knew what happened that night, and set out to lie to us.

    • Mandy, I appreciate your response. False Controversy…
      I don’t care what she calls it.
      You do not leave men behind!!!
      How dare her state she don’t want to think about it. That is their job. As you may notice from my post. I have not, and will not forget about Benghazi.

      • Yes, it is her job as the national security adviser, and she is touting the company line. However, at the time of the attack, I don’t know if she had a role in the decision-making process because she was at the UN.

        One good thing from the interview is her defense of Clinton, and I hope someone in the GOP picks up on it for the 2016 elections. What kind of president will Clinton make if, as secretary of state, she endured a gruelling week yet couldn’t get her shit together in order to answer hard questions from a lame media? Things get a lot harder when you’re sitting in the Oval Office.

    • Since I started with my online business I earn $41 every one hours. It sounds unbelievable but you won`t forgive yourself if you don’t check it out. WWW.T­E­C­8­­0.C­O­M

  2. Clinton didn’t go on the talk shows because she was tired. She didn’t want to answer the questions about blaming that video. She didn’t want to answer questions about the apparent coordinated attack. She didn’t want to answer questions about the piss-poor security.

    • I remember her being at some type of party, gathering that week. Having a good time. I apologize for not remembering the
      exact date, or where she was. I cannot forget the site of her with a big smile, having a good time. If anyone can recall that picture,
      please note it for me.

  3. CongKing, a Repub who proves that it’s not just the Dems who spout idiotic statements, claims that the NSA snooping could have prevented 9/11. If that were even a generous assessment of the effectiveness of their snooping, then the Boston bombing would have been thwarted and the Bosnian brothers would have been in custody on race day.

    Obamacare advocates hit the gay club scene and hilarity ensued.
    The “free” condoms were a hit with the club patrons, leaving the impression that they were more interested in having sex than buying health insurance.
    One wonders if “Obamacare” was stamped on the condoms and not just the outer package. Hmmm

    The Dems are out to get GovChristie as he polls parallel to MrsClinton in the presdential polls, but they don’t have to work too hard. There isn’t too much flyover country support for a east-coast Repub who has liberal ideas.
    He’s seen as a conservative Dem who wears a Repub hat.

    • Peter King has gone off the rails with his defense of big government spying on the American people. He so despises liberty he started an Anti-Tea Party PAC to attack fellow Republicans – Senators Cruz, Lee, and Paul.

    • Thank you for mentioning the Boston Bombing. NSA did not help.
      I will state that any all terrorist are laughing at us, as we tear down our freedom here in U.S.
      Years ago… They rode horses with paper (message) from one place to another. Can you imagine back than that there were pit stops along ther way with government officials making the party show them theri message?
      Than the telegram, same thing, imagine government officials saying they needed to read every telegram for the security of America. This has got to stop.
      No one heard a thing about the terrible day in Boston.

  4. So, the ZeroCare deadline is today, and the administration is bragging–bragging!–that they’ve got a million sign-ups.

    Well, yippee skippy, Barry! Even at the implicit gunpoint that is the force of law, you haven’t even signed up 1% of the population two and a half months in. You need 2.7 million young invincibles by the end of March, and at this rate, you’re not going to have 2.7 million enrollees.

    And while you’re golfing it up in paradise, we your subjects are facing Christmas in hardship, a New Year of uncertainty, and the very real possibility of having our very lives cut short by your signature “accomplishment.”

    I wish you upon yourself, you evil, evil, evil, lazy, uncaring, power-mad, lying, scheming, arrogant, sanctimonious, fraudulent, treasonous tyrant!

    And what the hell is that smell! I could have been at a barbecue! But I ain’t mad.

  5. I am surprised that the Democratic Hill would use a line like Democrats Seek to Puncture Christie. Brings forth a mental image of New Jersey entering a Chris Christie float in the Macy’s parade. There was a story yesterday that Atlantic City, NJ, and Las Vegas, NV, were slated next to fall after Detroit d/t the encroachment of on-line gambling on these two traditional venues. If so, both Chris Christie and Harry Reid have a spot of trouble on their hands.

  6. A recent poll indicates that the majority of opposition to ocare is coming from women. They must have realized swooning and fainting cost them dearly in premiums.

    • Women know what EOB (est of benefits) statements are–they even read them…They also monitor the online bill paying and suckouts from accts. They know this is going to HURT!!
