9 out of 10 dentists recommend Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste why don't the 1 out of ten recommend it? It's a worry. In a democracy, the majority carries sway. But with dentists, the minority might have a good point and should be heard.


This has more importance...which means.....what ever happened to the 9/11 commission?

And yet no one complains about the two Democrats that were supposed to be there but were elsewhere as well.

As this is an important event and the people that are supposed to be there chose not to be there, I think there should be an automatic recall. Let the states that voted for them vote to decide to keep them in there position or have them be done and gone like Twinkies.

Must be nice to have a job that you can show up or not and still vote yourself a raise. In fact I bet they all show up for that one.

i have been sour on my Senator Lindsey Graham for awhile now...but he...put out this on his website about the letter he wrote to the CIC Øbama




Senator Graham Press Releases
Contact: Tate Zeigler (202-224-5972) or Kevin Bishop (864-250-1417)
Date: 11/14/2012

Graham Responds to President Obama on Benghazi and Ambassador Rice

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement in response to President Obama’s comments about Benghazi and Ambassador Susan Rice.

“Mr. President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi.
I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack.

“We owe it to the American people and the victims of this attack to have full, fair hearings and accountability be assigned where appropriate. Given what I know now, I have no intention of promoting anyone who is up to their eyeballs in the Benghazi debacle."





i still prefer DeMint, the other Senator from SC... but Graham is at least leveling his aim at the proper target...
perhaps the whole drama will be watered-down and maybe Not

more of Congress should be stepping up and calling Øbama out as not defending the Constitution by allowing 4 citizens to be denied their civil rights (i.e.: getting killed) when serving in a diplomatic capacity

regardless of this little non story why are they having classified meetings about it instead of just addressing the public with the info?

Why are they hiding behind closed doors with their info?
sounds like a lot of scheming to me



no...it's about protecting vaulable assets in the field, and gathering information to catch the bad guys...basically their job

did you read what petreus said?....the information released about it being the "fault of the video"...was to throw off al-queida, so the CIA would able to gather more intel, if they thought america was duped into believing it....but, the republicans couldn't keep their mouth shut and started calling Obama a liar and a traitor, and senators wanted to call a watergate type hearing. can we get some adults in congress or is that too much to ask?

And the real question is was Romney briefed about Benghazi? i mean why brief someone about an event that has already past especially if at first it wasn't considered a terrorist attack?


They gave Romney intelligence briefings before the foriegn policy debate...and Romney did not bring up Benghazi once after the briefings. They would brief him because there was/is an active hunt for those responsible and was/is and active investigation by FBI, CIA...black Ops etc. and the POTUS would need to come online immediately with no catch-up. That is the entire reason presidential candidates recieve intelligence briefings leading up to elections.

BUT...I'll play..."And the real question is was Romney briefed about Benghazi?"....ABSOLUTELY...I think that warrants a GOP led special committee investigation!!!...AMERICANS DIED!...What did Romney know and when!!! AND why did he not comment on it!!!!!

Republicans aren't even interested in finding out exactly who is resposible for the attack.

In their mind it is an Obama issue, not a terrorist one.

I have yet to hear one single Fox talking head discussing anger toward the murderers. Only at president Darky McCommunist.

It's pathetic at this point.

And does anyone in their right mind think the republicans are going to change so much that they will get the majority of the votes in the up coming future?!?!

To be a republican, you have to be so full of s h i t that your own siblings can't stand you. You've got to be a blow hard, not wanting to put an effort into anything, and then be a hypocrite by call others lazy.

This news doesn't surprise me one bit.

Pretty much this, they just want to attack Obama, they really don't care about the people killed or the real murderers, they seem to hate Obama more than the terrorists.

I really hope the GOP is getting the message loud and freaking clear.

They have made nothing but fools of themselves since Obama won in '08. It must be quite a conundrum for dolts that the only things they can sling at him that would have cost him support are things that would betray their agenda's and pocket liners. So now they have birth certificates, communist and Benghazi. Three strikes, you're out.

This type of behavior cost the GOP in 08, it cost them in 12, they can't afford more. The rest of America is telling them something...

STOP FLINGING POO!

It's not cute or funny anymore.

This sort of foolishness is exactly what occurs when a political agenda forces a career pol to come to a conclusion prior to gathering the facts. "Don't bother me with any damned facts... I've got a score to settle!"

So what then was more important then attending a hearing that is part of their job, especially when it deals with such a high profile matter? What other meeting could have been so important that they could skip this? Was their child or other family member in the hospital? Were they in the Hospital?

A political cartoon I just thought up: A frightened-looking baby elephant in schoolboy's garb is being held by the hand by his mother (who sports a Fox network logo). A public school playground filled with screaming, playing kids of various ethnicities is in the background. Mom tells a nearby school administrator "He's been home-schooled up to this point."

How ironic that Susan Collins votes with Democrats most of the time and voted for Socialist healthcare. She should just put a D back of her name. It would be more honest. Arlen Specter changed sides, why can't she?

Here's the REST of your story: Baby elephant's mom and dad homeschooled him to protect him from the evil values clarification and Progressive indoctrination started by John Dewey a Statist who believed that children were just cogs in the wheel of society and that the children exist only for the State. Then the State forced baby elephant's mom to bring him to public school through various coercive means, including the extra cost for Obamacare....all the other children are already indoctrinated since birth and do not know it. Mom is unhappy because she knows that all those other children were never taught the US Constitution and cannot even spell correctly and she knows her baby will end up in a similar condition as he forgets the real training he got at home like they used to do in Pioneer times.
