    So this tool of a president has no idea of what is going on…………..AT ALL! Really????

    Obama: ‘I’m Not Familiar’ With Benghazi Whistleblowers Being Threatened

    President Barack Obama said today at a press conference that he’s “not familiar” with reports that Benghazi whistleblowers are being threatened:

    “I’m not familiar with this notion that anybody has been blocked from testifying,” said Obama. “So what I’ll do is i will find out what exactly you are referring to.”

    Fox News has reported that whistleblowers are being blocked:

    At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

    Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

    “I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

    What’s even dumber is that Chriscee does not even care about right wing GOP accomplishments–she says it’s not the government’s job to assist in trying improve the economy and job growth…Now that’s even MORE stupid…..but the good news is that she is helping elect dems, thank you, mam…..

  • usa8888

    hey, Rat–now that you admit you can’t list any right wing accomplishments, you keep doing what Fox Fake News does–trying to get mileage out of Benghazi by inventing things that didn’t happen. Fox Fake and the right wing wing kooks are understandably upset that that Obama has the support of the American people and that Hillary looks like a shoe-in for pres in 2016–that the right wing is grasping at straws to distract attention from the great job that Obama is doing……. we have Rat and Chriscee (dumb and dumber) doing waht they can….

  • Chriscee

    Wall Street journal writes 30 to 40 million people will be harmed by Obama care

    @Wall Street journal writes 30 to 40 million people will be harmed by Obama care

    WSJ?? Doesn’t count! Try again!

  • usa8888

    The real financial news networks say EVERYONE will be HELPED by Obamacare. In fact, people with healthcare coverage now have already been helped–85% of everyone…can’t be dropped for flimsy reasons, kids stay on policy until 26, pre-existing conditions are not a problem anymore, fre preventive exams annually, etc.. Yes, Obama is addressing the continued healthcare cost increases that the GOP is content with –100% increase every 10 years…..Chriscee is again living in her delusionary world…….
    Don’t forget that WSJ is now owned by the same people who own Fox Fake News…..

  • Chriscee

    The real news is Obama calls jason Collins because he is gay. Obama can’t take time to send help to Benghazi victims.

  • Chriscee

    The real news is 1.4 million new unemployment claims every month. Obama focuses like a laser on golf

  • Chriscee

    The real news is obamacare will hurt democrats in 2014 election cycle and the senate will turn deep red

  • usa8888

    The right wing kooks in the House have obstructed all job growth programs and economic growth programs due to their abject ignorance, but the economy is gaining steam in spite of these backward thinking people, most of whom think like Chriscee…..

    THE REAL NEWS IS:

    U.S. Had Assets That Could Have Saved U.S. SEALs

    Even more disturbing says the whistle-blowers is:

    And they would be decapitated if they came forward with information that could effect high level commanders.

    Yep true to form for the Obama administration….they will go to any lengths to silence the truth. Even murder if they have to

    Doug Z wrote: “Report: Gang of 8 bill includes amnesty for 11 million plus 22 million other work permits, while gutting enforcement.”

    I would like to see in which income brackets those millions will fall when they become part of census statistics. Are they going to worsen the picture of “the poorer gets poorer” in this country, and therefore we need to do something, like tax the rich more, to counter the “trend”?

  • Chriscee

    President Obama sarcastically dismissed concerns over his struggles to pass key components of his second term agenda at a White House press conference Tuesday.

    “Maybe I should just pack up and go home,” Obama said. “Golly.”

    ABSOLUTELY BY FAR THE BEST IDEA OBAMA HAS EVER HAD….GO HOME!!

    I think that either one is ok to use. I almost had Rocky Mountain oysters the first time I was in Denver, thinking it was a seafood dish. It was a close call.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–rest easy–Obama is in charge and the country is definitely moving in the correct direction…….

  • Doug Z

    Obama lost the sequestration battle–there is NO need for sequestration in the first place. The left wing DNC simply does not want to close tax loop holes for the rich (private jet and yacht taxes, etc) and Getty Oil needs money and won’t agree to Obama’s trillions of dollars in budget increases for his friends . Why? Because the left wing kooks think like Joe Stalin , Insanitorum, Lian Hillary, Jeff and a host of other backward thinkers. The American poeple agree with Sen Paul just like they did with immigration control. Some modern thinking states adopted immigration control; others sontrolled by loons like California did not. It’s that simple… The good news is that, in spite of the left wing DNC obstruction, the economy is still loosing steam…..and corporations are recording huge profits With Obama money and printing of the people’s money.…the Stock Market is on fire….

    Inflation is on the way

  • Doug Z

    Grasshopper–rest easy–Obama is loosing the people and the country is definitely moving in the wrong direction…….

    Inflation is on the way

    When? And why do so many investors not agree with you? If hyperinflation is truly on the way, it should be literally impossible for the United States to sell it’s debt, it has been at negative yields since 2010, even on 30-year bonds. In other words, the present state of our sovereign is one in which investors are loaning the government $100 to get back $98 of purchasing power — and if they believed hyperinflation were on the way, the picture would be even more dire than that.

    Why, then, under such circumstances, as our government been able to move in excess of $3 trillion with negative yields (a sum greater than the GDP of all but a handful of countries)? Do you know better than the market? Because all present market factors indicate an expectation of a.) disinflation or b.) mild inflation, with the US Government still being the safest bet in town, or the least terrible choice in a sea of bad choices.
