Lawmakers press administration for
Libya answers after email release

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/26/2012 12:37:55 AM

Leading congressional lawmakers applied new pressure to the Obama administration Thursday for information on the Libya terror attack, after emails published this week showed top officials being told within hours that a local militant group had claimed responsibility. (Snip) House Speaker John Boehner, in a lengthy letter sent to President Obama on Thursday, called on the president to "explain to the American people" what happened. "The American public is increasingly reading information contradicting early accounts by your administration of the causes of the events of the day," Boehner said. "In the absence of your direct engagement to clarify these concerns,

[w/ Staff] I read the Senate will hold hearings after the elections. I also heard that when heavy rain flows through a crowded cow pasture stuff flows downhill. Same thing will happen in the Senate.

Gee, a little late to the party, eh?
A letter to the prez?
Why not grab the first mic and do this situation justice?
There are cable networks (Fox) who will interview you.
How frustrating that this has gone on for more than six weeks and a letter is sent?

This reminds me of the man who came home early to find his wife in bed with another man. He saw the guys umbrella leaning against the chair where he left his clothes. He went over to the chair, picked up the umbrella and broke it over his knee. He then said "there! I hope it rains!". Boehner's letter will have the same effect.

Well when a president forgets to ask permission to interfere in a foreign civil war and it all goes sour coverups are in order.
When dealing with said president's coverups written notice must be the method of demands for answers to Congress and the nation for wrong actions and/or articles of pending impeachment proceedings.

Uhhh, this mistake has already been made.

Actually, it's been made again, and again, and again, and again, and....

So... there's no need to make it again. Got that?

So what is that mistake? Treating Obama, and the Dems generally, in a "business as usual" way. [That basic error runs through our foreign policy, too -- treating every backwater, landfill, and tailings-pile that presents itself as a "country" as though the fiction is true. That's nuts.]

Anyone who looks at all the destruction the Left has caused in the last 4 years, and who doesn't understand that they aren't "rivals" or "colleagues" with "policy differences, but are, in fact, enemies, literal enemies, has to be dumped and replaced. There's just no more time to waste. They've had their chance. Their chances. Why hope they'll finally figure it out when we can replace them with people who we know get it from Day One?

Congress has power. Pull on your big boy pants and use it to protect the country.

We know very well the truism that if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.

The Republiweenie "leadership" gets "tough" again.
In addition to a new President on Jan 20, I'm praying for a change in GOP "leaders"; you know, someone(s) with an understanding of our national plight, and the courage to take on the fight (maybe like Allen West for example).
Please get rid of the crybaby and his comatose cohort.

Obama and his henchmen will all walk on everything. A Republican administration would have collapsed long ago under the weight of the scandals, indictments, prosecutions, lawsuits and people entering prison. The MSM would not have allowed any of these types of crimes and transgression to be swept under the rug by a Republican president.

Totally inept and totally predictable. Republicans in Congress just don't get the hang of "party in power". Last time they had control of both houses, they stupidly decided to share power. Now with only the House in their control, they're delaying and deferring a hearing which is desperately needed right now. In fact, why even have it after the election? If Romney wins, he's certainly not going to want to start with a massive investigation. And if Obama wins, he'll totally ignore it and flip them off.

As for SecDef Panetta, what else did he need to know? Our consulate was being sacked and burned and our people were being killed. Send in the drones or the Apache helicopters, kill everyone in sight, and let Allah sort out the martyrs from the lookey-loos. How tough a decision is that? In previous wars, with nowhere near the same quality of intelligence or weaponry, commanders of positions being overrun would radio in artillery or air strikes directly on their own position. Now, Panetta is worried that he might accidentally injure a lookey-loo? Idiot.

As much as I loathe Nancy Pelosi, she was a pit bull for her party when she was Speaker. She was out there every day basing Bush and his administration and it worked. The left knows that you must fight for what you want. You have to be vocal and visible. Speaker Boehner appears to be content in the position of beta male. He could have done much more for our side without the rancor of Pelosi by just getting out there and making the case. Mr. Boehner, when this country needs visible, vocal, clear, concise opposition, you write letters. This is not acceptable. Start using the media to our advantage. Americans have died because of the neglect of this administration. That deserves more than a strongly worded letter.

"The Loyal Opposition"

A very comforting phrase which used to assure everyone that the various parties would keep each other honest as each contributed to a better and stronger America.

As the Left has embraced an all inclusive scorched earth approach on all issues great and small, the Right has become sticklers for proper procedure and etiquette and deference to the Left.

This can not stand.

Didn't Ambassador Stephans get summoned to Benghazi and arrived late in the evening with one of the Navy Seals as his only companion? If there is a cover up over weapons given to Al Quada by this administration, then perhaps Stephans was lured to his doom because of knowing too much. Refusing to give him proper protection makes sense if this is the case.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
