I told y'all soooo...no one cares about Benghazi...especially when 60 million idiots just gave you a vote of confidence. 4 years from now you guys will still be wondering when something is going to happen about Libya LOL

Not that I expect an explanation that rings true, but how can he NOT testify? A man who is a general knows that he's ''on call'' 24/7.

The rotting DC cesspool is stinking more over this decision. I really don't believe this is possible...but, who am I?

What good would the testimony of Petraeus be?

He has already told the nation that he is a deceitful person who would lie in order to satisfy his own desires.

A shame... an entire career .. ends in disgrace.

Now.. he is just another Obama tool.

No character General. You have no character sir.

Then he needs to be followed around by citizen journalists and questioned until some answers are given. If our Congress won't do the job (because I refuse to believe the "can't") then someone's got to pick up the slack.

Hillary will revive her General Betrayus slur when she testifies in his place. "I trusted Betrayus with our Benghazi complex, but he too busy staining another blue dress. I have nothing to add but that I will take the 5th on any and all questions, If I can beat Ken Starr, I certainly can beat you dopes. Excuse me, senators."

I just read in Caroline Glick's article, ''But lucky for him [Obama], the Benghazi debacle was small enough for the media to hide from the electorate. Sure a US ambassador and three others were murdered. But four is not a very large number. And it was over in a day.''

Oy! May the truth come out for all the world to see.

Bet the farm on this - - in fact, bet two farms - - - -

Petraeus will NEVER testify - - even if they hold hearings every day until Doomsday - - which come to think of it isn't as far off as it used to be.

Zippy and his thugs got to Petey - - and they got to him good. We'll see Jimmy Hoffa before we the the Ginrul again.

Buh-bye!

Nothing significant was going to happen anyway. Not with John F. Kerry running the Senate investigation.

Also - the story is young - someone seems to have had David by the gonads. That hurts.

I thought something was wrong the day he went to work for Obama. His wife promptly got a very nice job too.

The House investigation - even though honest - will be futile too.

---Just got off the phone my Congressman's and Senator's office. And I told them in no uncertain terms will I be supporting or voting for any Republican who doesn't stand up and fight the fight for this country. I suggest everyone do the same then these RINO republican cowards might understand our anger and disgust. Sit there and do nothing and nothing is all you're gonna get!

I met him at a small outpost in Afghanistan.

Christmas Day two years ago.

He had the hands and the handshake of a man who had never held a pipe wrench or a chainsaw.

I've got no use for high ranking sissies.

But....for those who can read the tea leaves....it's obvious that he is fading the heat for Barky.

Scrooom.

Please, please friends - - please don't even begin to think that Petraeus had a sexual dalliance. He didn't say he did - - so why would any of us think he did?

"Affair" is a very, very broad term - - it can mean just about anything. And in this case - - it means something which none of us are evil enough to contemplate.

Zippy is pro-abortion and black - - plus he just got reelected president by thoroughly dumbed-down voters. He'll skate away better than Dorothy Hamill in her prime.

okay - they threatened him that his ''affair'' would be revealed. So he resigns and spills his own beans. Now it's the horse's head and the ''nice family you got there'' intimidation. And he refuses to testify.

Testify. Funny - the origin of that word supposedly is from ancient Rome. The men would put their hands on their testicles when they took an oath. There appears to be a lot of that testicle grabbing in DC...

John Bolton just talked to Neal Cavuto. Bolton contends that Petraeus WILL testify - maybe not next Thursday, but at some time soon - subpoenaed if necessary. But he says Petraeus will tell his Benghazi story. Under oath.

And who paid for the hooker with whom he quickly shacked up last week in order to duck having to spill the beans on the birth certificate challenged Bow-Boy, darling of the Amerikan Communist Village, elected by hacking voting databases.

Well, I don't for a minute think it was a hooker; it was Pig-In-A-Pants-Suit. They had drinks the other night after letting Bow-Boy let the RH's kill the ambassador and he wakes up in her bed with cankle marks on his Petraeus the next morning and rather than kill himself, he cranks up this lie about an affair.

And PIAPS is in tears.

It's a real Lady McBeth tragedy.

Time for the parents/loved ones of the fallen to be heard! They deserve the truth, sadly, I doubt they will get it from this White House!

We need a valiant reporter who seeks the truth!

America sat back, did not care about their fellow-Americans who suffered/died for our freedom. Obama denied US what our Constitution provides! All in an election year.

The liberal media "selectively" reported whatever helped Obama win. How does "Revenge" sound!

This country has not lived up to our reputation of a land of the free, home of the brave. We were denied truth/freedom. The brave were denied their "day in court" before we as a country went to the polls, deciding our future on denial of the past month where Obama/Hillary both lied to US. Bill Clinton set the benchmark and they just "followed" his example.

We need a thorough investigation!

We were sold a bill of goods, not honest/true!

Nothing new from the last four years,yet this country "bought" the lies. We all will suffer the consequences of an ill-informed society.

God's Word is our only safeguard. He will make all things good to "those" who call upon His Name, live His way, place our faith/trust/confidence in Him alone.

Islam is not the religion of peace.

Jesus said before He left the earth, they hated Me, they will hate you. The Peace I give is not of this world. His Kingdom will reign forever! There will be no war/fear. No one who will succeed in usurping His power. Amen

America was fooled by Obama the first time, shame on him. We were fooled again, shame on US! That is what we are experiencing.

The killing evidence against nixon was the tape where haldeman mentions the watergate break-in, and asks nixon if they should just say that the cia was handling a confidential matter, or words to the effect.
And nixon said, 'yes.'
Now Petraeus provides a convenient firewall for President Zero. Zero will just throw up his hands and say Petraeus knows what happened, and he ain't talking.

Most of us, as we age, have little to fear other than for family, particularly our children. Strange but true. Who cares about an affair, everyone has those, regardless how foolish and futile they are in retrospect. Self looses value. Family is the only thing that matters, has value. And that is probably, I suspect, the key to the bizarre Petraeus behavior.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer: One teacher calls it the "new normal" for southwest Philadelphia´s Bartram High School: a massive brawl in the cafeteria, where students punched and stomped each other, and even attacked school police; firecrackers set off in the building; and the student who fractured the skull of a "conflict resolution specialist" is once again roaming the halls, just two weeks after the attack. Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority."

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks? You start the applications yourself. Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf. HHS had started the applications for them. The Shark Tank reported: News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida. After his radio show concluded, another listener emailed Steele telling him about receiving the same

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is “solid evidence” of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.) Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is “the man on the

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest. Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite. The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend. Jan Iverson created an organization called “The Difference Matters” to protest Mrs. Clinton’s quest for the presidency, because of her role in Benghazi. “She is not welcome

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

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.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some
