John McCain Asks NBC´s
David Gregory ´Do You Care
Whether Four Americans Died?´

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/17/2013 4:13:00 PM

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) asked NBC´s David Gregory a question Sunday that should be asked of virtually every media member in this country. During a heated exchange about the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year, McCain said to his Meet the Press host, "Do you care whether four Americans died?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):DAVID GREGORY, HOST: The president said this week on the issue of Benghazi, "You guys are running out of things to ask about." So let me ask you, at the end of the day here on Benghazi, if the worst thing

No, he doesn´t care. he would only care if this had happened in a R administration. This time, McCain done good. More and more people should turn the tables on Obama´s media and ASK THEM TO ANSWER QUESTIONS!

the left has a stock answer on Benghazi and that´s the 4000+ that died in Iraq and according to them we killed 100´s of thousands of civilians.So,why are we so concerned over 4 people.

Never mind that this was complete dereliction of duty and a massive cover up scheme that blew up in their faces. A fake illness and injury to Hillary to buy time.Petraeus ran out of town to keep his mouth shut.

I rarely have anything nice to say about Sen. McCain, so here is an exception thanks for taking it right to the phoney journalist who is really just a propagandist in the Geobbel´s style. McCain did not let him get a way with it. Thanks you Senator this happens as often as the Pope retiring and lightning hitting the Vatican.

What #3 said. As of late, I, too, don´t have much good to say about McCain; especially, since he punted on the election and left us with this mess.

It will be interesting to see where he and Miss Lindsay stand (fall?) on the Hagel matter.

McCain outlines numerous issues that we don´t have answers to, nor are any answers forthcoming, and Gregory still continues to ask "A cover up of what?"!!!
NBC is just State Controlled Media and Gregory is just another little monkey dancing on the end of the Obamboozler´s string!

No, McCain did not do good. How about:

"Do you not care about four dead Americans?. Or are you so bent upon saving Obama embarrassment that you will invite me on your show in an attempt to further brunt those who want answers? It is tragic that we have a media that refuse to help us honor these dead Americans by at the very least knowing the full story as to why it happened. (Take off mic and walk off the set).

that is what must begin to happen to these cretins. But don´t expect anyone but Cruse to do it.

THIS is what Republicans need to do in a united fashion if they are to win back a majority in the U.S. Senate!

QUESTION the questioners! Shove those uncomfortable questions right in their faces, from Benghazi to Fast & Furious!

Thank you, Senator McCain!

Do they care about four dead Americans?

Note that David Gregory REFUSED TO ANSWER?

Do they care about three-hundred murdered Mexican Citizens?

Note that they won´t report, and won´t answer!

After the Benghazi attack, Susan Rice was specifically asked to appear on ´´Meet the Press´´ in order to lie that it was caused by an anti-Islamist video.

And for years, John McCain has been specifically asked to appear on ´´Meet the Press´´ in order to undermine the Republican party.

´´Meet the Press´´ has been nothing if not consistent in its support for the Democrats.

But if John McCain has decided to no longer fulfill his anti-Republican mission on Sunday talkshows, which Republican will be left to do so? Lindsay Graham? But Senator Grahamnesty is up for re-election next year and probably doesn´t want to be the Dick Lugar of 2014.

So, ´´Meet the Press´´ has a job opening for a disloyal Republican, and let´s hope no one will agree to fill it.

Say what you will, but Senator McCain AND Senator Lindsay Graham have done a very good job (lately) of calling out obama and his obama-worshipping-knee-pad-wearing-press, not that it matters to some who are heck-bent on bashing them. Thank you, John McCain!

Why should the LeftMedia care about the murders of 4 Americans?
Now if it were 4 homosexuals denied the "right" to marry, or 4 third-trimester Women seeking last minute abortions, or 4 gay troop leaders rejected by the Boy Scouts, or 4 Black people somehow "dissed" by whites, Or 4 illegal aliens denied the right to vote--then the LeftMedia would be all over it.

# 16 Amen.
Senators McCain and Graham have been on point on Benghazi ( and Hagel and gun control ) for weeks.
Limbaugh and the other far right wing talkers continue to ignore the great job these two have done .
Because it doesn´t fit the phony narrative that they have established.
For some inexplicable reason, some self appointed Tea Party honchos continue to slam Graham
and vow to primary him.
If past is prologue, we can watch that seat go the Akin way.

Like several others here, I too cannot understand why our side is still trying to crucify Graham. I´ve listened to him many times in recent weeks, and he is almost alone in taking the Regime to the woodshed, and remaining persistent about it. Conservatives truly are a circular firing squad.

I keep asking, what happened to Tyrone Woods´ father, Charles ? Has he been silenced ?

We had to listen to Cindy Sheehan for years. I would LIKE to hear from Charles Woods again. After all, the President PROMISED him answers.

The reason so many of us are hard on McCain and Graham is because we know they will cave. They start out strong but eventually they back down. Asking hard questions is not enough. Get back to me when they demand answers and get them. Evidently the price of American lives is cheap if we can let Obama and this administration get away with the failure to come to the aid of their fellow countrymen when they are begging for help. Will we fiercely advocate on their behalf or just move on as this administration advises.

Thank you Senator McCain. The only trouble with his cover up theory is this administration doesn´t really have to bother. The Gregory press corps will never report the truth on Benghazi so why even bother covering up? All they have to do is stonewall their way through a few hearings and demonize anyone who wants answers.

Oh, and wait for a Republican to take a drink of water during a speech. Gregory´s news company will air THAT 155 times LOL. Useful idiots.

Good for McCain for asking Gregory this question; however, McCain must not care all that much either since he won´t block an incompetent like Hagel from becoming Secretary of Defense. You can´t have it both ways, John. Do you honestly think Hagel is going to buck King Barry if another Benghazi happens and the Muslim BroHoods want to take over?

Of course Gregory doesn´t care. Gregory is memorable for his arrogance, rudeness and overweening conceit when he was a member of the White House Press Corps during the Bush administration. Surely we all can remember this self-important clown barking at Bush like a high school bully barking at a freshman.

I´m with #12. Benghazi happened September 11, 2012. We´re 5 months on and no one is watching David Gregory. On the other hand, the Senate is supposed to providing Advice and Consent on the Hagel and Brennan nominations. Both have decided the questioning has gone on long enough even though the questions haven´t been answered. And both have taken swipes at Ted Cruz who is trying to do his job.

WE all know that 4 Americans were sacrificed and essentially jettisoned from any meaning by the Regime...The unanswered questions are:
A.) what has happened to the Thirty-one people who have been hidden by the Regime...
B.)Folks who could answer the questions about what really happened in Benghazi?
1.)They could come forward and tell America the truth.
2.) Are they still alive, or were they
sacrificed to the Big Ego in the WH?

QUESTIONS Without AANSWERS!

People are hard on Graham and McCain because they deserve it. They have undercut Republicans at every turn.

Has McCain done a good job on Benghazi? Well, I suppose. But the only reason he was even invited on the show is because he´s once again undercutting Republicans on the Hagel issue. Which is a very important issue. Will he undercut on the vile Brennan as well? If he operates true to form he will.

#16, #19, #24 et al:

The reason many on “our side” continue to complain about McCain and Graham is not because they sometimes rouse themselves to stand on conservative issues, but because they never back up the rhetoric with meaningful votes. Example: the Hagel confirmation.

Their pattern is to make some noise on the “news” shows, but then they always vote “yes” on the progressive agenda every time. They never play hardball when it really matters. Where are the rest of the GOP senators? They’re in hiding as McCain and Graham, the designated hitters, lob out a few pop flies to give the crowd a chance to cheer, but in the end they will throw the game.

Go ahead and cheer for the pop flies, those of us who expect, at least, a double-hit are leaving the stadium.

If ONLY McCain could make a clear, articulate argument instead of stammering and stuttering so darn much it diminishes any cognizant point he might accidently make! He is terminally pathetic in any debate. When he and others had the opportunity, to nail Hillary on Benghazi, they were too busy grandstanding and stammering to go for the throat, ask the right questions, and get to the bottom of this event. I wish Trey Gaudy could get Obama, Hillary, Panetta & Susan Rice in a hot room for a good old fashioned interrogation. I think he could get to the bottom of Benghazi and he doesn´t stammer and stutter in McCain´s mealy-mouthed way.

I noticed that the camera went from split-screen to all John McCain at some point, after McCain asked Gregory that question. Probably so we couldn´t see the disdain on Gregory´s face.

Chris Matthews has been attacking McCain, saying that he (Matthews) was sure he was witnessing a flashback by the former POW.

The MSM has completely lost all decency.

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now."

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
