Time to approve pipeline

February 4, 2014

Enough is enough — unless, apparently, you are President Barack Obama, determined to please your environmentalist supporters....

"Cavalier" works when "convincing" doesn't.

So I'm "clumsy" in my facts, centerish? Yeah, that really hurts.

To quote a former Sec. of State: "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?"

"...misogynistic hero..."

I know I see one when willgrr looks in his mirror. Tell us again what you REALLY think about all conservative women, but especially Sarah Palin.

Interesting how "misogyny" doesn't apply to Democrat bad behavior. Did you read the newest about the Clintons?

Gosh, loco, I am so glad you are referencing the "facts" as you see them??? Let me see, the Congressional report came out in January of 2014 but you reference opinion articles from four months prior to the report. Good quality investigations from a right wing stand point. Yep, lots of committees and the Issa inquisition was superb at best to sway things his way. But, it was not to be. No committee came up with anything substantial and have now gone silent and into the night. Like most all of your posts, you come from the right with the mucky, non-factual stuff and carry the banner as if you found something. Which you almost never do. Your sources are all right wing and all opinions. Keep on loco, we appreciate your attempts, ever so clumsy, to portray opinion as facts. Please feel free to continue your portrayal of the factless news as you dream it.

willgrr, if you'd read, you might see some differences, but I won't take the job of explaining myself to a person who DOES NOT LIKE conservative women.

That'd be like smacking my head against a brick wall a few dozen times. Knowing you, you'd be happy if I'd do it. Now. Hurry up.

They're subjecting the oil corporations to too much scrutiny. Shut up and let them do what the frack they want.

As usual, centerish's post is rather condescending to those who think the administration's press conferences immediately after the Benghazi incident were less than forthcoming or truthful.

Her charge of "carrying water" can be turned about and applied to her and other avid administration apologists, who cannot seem to bear any questioning of the incumbent President, his administration's officials, their actions or their words.

Present-day Democrats are very thin-skinned. After all, it's just a little investigation. Plenty of Republican administrations, as well as other Democrat administrations, have weathered them. If this administration has messed up, say so and move on. There's more respect in that than having one's supporters up in arms with much ado.

My last word: some might like being a partisan sheep, but it ain't for me.

"In examining the circumstances of (the) attacks, the Accountability Review Board for Benghazi determined that...(r)esponsibility...rests solely and completely with the terrorists who perpetrated the attacks. The Board concluded there was no protest prior to the attacks..."

I have a question: why did the administration try to pin "responsibility" on a video?

Second question: if the administration really didn't know anything, why say anything?

Don't all inquiring minds want to know WHY five House committees have been investigating the Benghazi matter? And I mean reasons instead of the talking points the liberals keep rolling out over and over. It's in this report.

Weekly Standard 9-11-13

"The lack of information from U.S. government officials on the ground in Benghazi that night is the largest hole in the narrative surrounding the attacks. Until now, members of Congress have had to rely largely on the accounts of people who were in touch with individuals in Benghazi – reports that were, by definition, secondhand. But with the apparent commitment of (CIA Director John) Brennan to help make available CIA personnel who survived the attacks, the public may begin to learn firsthand—after a full year—some of many of the outstanding details of what actually happened in Libya that night."

NYTimes 9-9-2013 "President Obama promised the day after the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks to bring the killers to justice, and the fact that this has not happened has led Congressional Republicans to renew their criticism of the administration for its handling of the Benghazi episode..."

Time to get with it loco. The investigations have been completed, congressional hearings are over, and the republican muckrakers in the House and Senate are done investigating. As usual, the conspiracy theories failed as did the entire Republican response. But, the nut cases carry on. Keep on carrying their water for them. Always behind.

willygarr/canook/markhighwater,

I'm still waiting for math class.

If the following is true, I was ten when you started your tour in Vietnam. Do you honestly expect any of us to believe you talk like this, a person of your age and hopefully wisdom. If I was ten then you would have to be almost 80 now. It's hard to deceive for that long.

Started tour on May 15, 1968 at Bien Hoa Province, South Vietnam..My rank is Captain, Us Army. My MOS {training} is 4800D Maintenance Officer for Ordnance and Civil Affairs...Units served; A Co. Army Depot Long Binh Army S>P>T>, CMD Saigon, 1st LOG CMD, USARV... Medals: Purple Heart

I am not worried about the pipeline. What I am worried about is Minot having capable skills of disseminating information in a timely manner with the appropriate officials speaking and knowing how to respond to the needs of the public with appropriate questions and answers, key messages, crisis communications training, proper protocol to responding to the media and so forth. Yes there is a public information officer in place put into effect because of the flood proving this need, but in other instances there hasn't been proper protocol, media ground rules and so forth when it comes to dealing with such projects and so forth.

"Lastly, Obama was asked about Benghazi by co-host Joy Behar during his appearance on ABC’s daytime show "The View" on Tuesday, September 25:

"BEHAR: OK, I want to talk about Libya for a second because on 9/11 of this past year our embassy was attacked there and we lost four people, including the ambassador, and it was reported that people just went crazy and wild because of this anti-Muslim movie, or anti-Mohammed, I guess, movie. But then I heard Hillary Clinton say it was an act of terrorism. Is it? What do you say?

"OBAMA: Well, we’re still doing an investigation. There’s no doubt the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn’t just a mob action. Now, we don’t have all the information yet, and so we’re still gathering it. But what’s clear is that around the world, there are still a lot of threats out there."

"Two days later, on September 20, at a forum hosted by the Spanish-language channel Univision, Obama again used the anti-Mohammed video to conflate the issue of protests in parts of the Arab world (where it was a driving factor) and the attack in Libya (where it wasn’t) and also to dodge a question about the lack of security in Benghazi and elsewhere on the anniversary of 9/11."

Pres. Obama: "What we’ve seen over the last week, week and a half, is something that actually we’ve seen in the past, where there is an offensive video or cartoon directed at the prophet Muhammad. And this is obviously something that then is used as an excuse by some to carry out inexcusable violent acts directed at Westerners or Americans."

Sept. 18, "Letterman asked Obama specifically about the Benghazi attack, and the president responded by bringing up the video. Here’s the exchange:

"LETTERMAN: Now, I don’t understand, um, the ambassador to Libya killed in an attack on the consulate in Benghazi. Is this an act of war? Are we at war now? What happens here?

"OBAMA: Here's what happened. ... You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who -- who made an extremely offensive video directed at -- at Mohammed and Islam --

"LETTERMAN: Making fun of the Prophet Mohammed.

"OBAMA: Making fun of the Prophet Mohammed. And so, this caused great offense in much of the Muslim world. But what also happened, extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the one, the consulate in Libya..."

"U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice is under fire for going on several Sunday talk shows five days after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and providing apparently erroneous information to the public. But President Obama’s own public statements about Benghazi, made in three separate nationally televised interviews in the days after Rice’s appearances, were equally misleading and have received scarcely any attention...."
