On Benghazi, 78 Percent Say Questions of W.H. Response 'Should be Taken Seriously'
The Weekly Standard ^ | August 9, 2013 | MICHAEL WARREN

Lately, the Obama administration has taken to referring to "phony scandals" that have distracted Washington from the important issues--namely, the White House's domestic agenda. But a new poll from Fox News shows that the majority of Americans believe each of the four of the administration's so-called scandals--the Benghazi attack, the NSA domestic surveillance program, the Justice Department's subpoening of journalists' phone records, and the increased scrutiny of conservative non-profit groups by the IRS--are serious issues.

Among the scandals, the administration's handling of the terrorist attack in Benghazi last year had the highest percentage of voters agreeing with the seriousness of the issue, with 78 percent of voters saying the questions about the attack "should be taken seriously" and only 17 percent calling it a "phony scandal."

My first question is WHERE WAS OBAMA THAT NIGHT?

If he was home sleeping, that would be bad enough...

I think we should actively refuse to call these “Scandals” and call them what they really are.

These are serious crimes and should referred to as such.

The “leader” of the House of Representatives is out of town to find a Christmas tree and does not wish to be disturbed.

The other 22% said they never heard of Ben Gazi, and don’t know who he is...

(cue Mark Dice)

The commander that night was a person TOTALLY UNELECTED.

The official POTUS is probably an imposter, and the person REALLY in charge lurks in the shadows with SS protection 24/7 and is deeply related to actual communists.

She also probably has a relationship with Iranian mullahs that we don’t know about.

The four martyred Americans of Benghazi should go down in history with those martyred at the Alamo. REMEMBER THE ALAMO...REMEMBER BENGHAZI! They all perished defending American ideals against massive odds, while waiting for reinforcements which never came. And our dumb-ass leader will give the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the likes of Gloria Steinem, Oprah Winfrey and a bunch of other left wing jerks.

The day will come when the commies will place section 8 welfare collectors into homes occupied by elderly social security residents.

Where are all the “Bush lied, people died” wackos now?

Where are all the republicans reminding the nation about that?

Among the 22% that think the issue is not serious would be a vast number of Republican Congresscritters.

I would think republicans en-mass would be screaming non-stop from the halls of congress, but the only time we hear anything is when they conduct hearings, which amounts to nothing more than a dog and pony show.

Just venting my frustration with the whole thing.

I tweeted to Boehner:

@SpeakerBoehner @politico 78% say Benghazi is serious - not phony. Why don’t you get in front of THAT parade, John?

Obama calling these scandals ‘phony’ is insulting to all Americans... well, not to liberal elites - they party at the thought of our misery.

The only thing phony about this scandal, only one of many, is the nonchalance with which they speak of it/them...like those who are 100% guilty of murder, looting, colluding, and/or other random crimes...they lie. And WE know it.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

On Benghazi, 78 Percent Say Questions of W.H. Response 'Should be Taken Seriously'

Who wrote that freakin headline?

How about:

On Benghazi: 78 Percent Say Scandal is Real. White House should take it seriously.

-or-

On Benghazi: 78 Percent don't believe White House. Special Prosecutor should be Named.
