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.

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — 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

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
