If only the GOP had held Bush as accountable for the 3000 deaths on 9/11 as they want...

President Obama to be for the 4 men who died in Libya this year.
But that would be asking too much.

1. I say that to every right winger

who brings up Behgazhi, especially since there is new evidence the CIA begged Bush to pay attention to threats from Al Qaeda, but the neo-cons convinced him to ignore the CIA's pleas. Right wingers never have a response.

15. I've done that. The response was:

 

"Well Bush isn't President right now!"

And I ask them whether they held Bush accountable or if they have double standards for Democrats. Invariably, I get to point out what flaming hypocrites they are.

16. Ancient history

"Why do you liberals always bring up ancient history"? And I say, oh I forgot. We must pretend George Bush never existed so you can blame every problem on earth on Barack Obama. Hypocrites is the nicest term you can use to describe them.

2. Or how about the fake WMD that lead us to war with Iraq?

There is so fricking much we could throw at the neocons

Come on Democrats.

Show up on Meet the Press and give Lindsey a smackdown.

3. I've been thinking about Bush's 9/11 and his WMDs in Iraq all morning.

Thousands of people died in each event. I'd like to see the Dems on the attack for a change. Why are we always so damned conciliatory?

6. That is why we are in so much debt, that is why they created expensive big government programs

 

And these pro lifers caused the deaths of millions of innocents.

4. Exactly!

I was just going to post the same thought. Benghazi pales in comparison to the security failures of 911. Where was the outrage? I'm getting tired of the sore losers. Bring up reopening the 911 investigation and they'll shut up.

5. At least ask Bush whether he saw the attack or was notified about it

He's claimed both--

He saw it
https://

He was notified about it (0'50")
https://

Which is it? Where's our crack investigative reporters? ASK HIM!!!

21. Amazing, isn't it?

Bumbling fool ignores many 9/11 warnings:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/11/opinion/the-bush-white-house-was-deaf-to-9-11-warnings.html?_r=0

...then sits on his butt and does nothing when informed of the second attack:



Andrew Card told him about the second attack at 9'05"

http://www.911timeline.net/

Then he invades the wrong country, claiming he got the intelligence wrong!

Yet, the Repubs are "outraged" over the Benghazi attack?

What a pack of losers and whiners!

8. Where were the figher jets? They couldn't intercept a hijacked flight for over an hour?

 


Cheney was in charge of NORAD.

Rumsfeld had no idea a plane had hit the towers until one hit the pentagon, over an hour later. He was in a meeting.

9. The GOP set the bar for impeachment over a terrorist attack.

That bar is:

1) ~3000 dead Americans on the continental US.
2) A PDB predicting the attack more than 1 month prior to the attack.
3) Complete inactivity following said PDB

Before the GOP can discuss impeaching any future President for a terrorist attack, the events must include equivalent failures, and then something more.

Until then, they should STFU.

20. +1000

It's interesting that they set the bar for impeachment so low for a Democratic President (a cum stained dress and lying about a BJ) and then turned around set the bar so high for a Republican President.

11. Let's also remember Bush lowered resources an priority for counterterrorism...

...which also sidesteps their knee-jerk reaction to blame Clinton for 911. Remind them that whatever they may think of Clinton, Bush took that baseline and REDUCED it.

18. Some actually call our President a murderer

And claim he deliberately let those Americans in Benghazi die. It makes me furious, and because there is no evidence to support that charge I believe it traitorous. They have no respect.

19. Or the more than 300,000 in Iraq..

Oh. I forgot. That was okay. They weren't voters or Americans, just plain iraqis, not to worry.
