Who couldn’t anticipate?

Those “clever” Republicans have finally gotten to the bottom of things about Benghazi by doing nothing more than figuring out who the most likely Democratic nominee in 2016 is going to be.


Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday unveiled a report on last’s year attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that blames then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for lapses in security…

The 46-page report by the five committees of jurisdiction concludes that reductions in security levels prior to the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were approved at the highest levels of the State Department, including by Clinton herself.

I wonder if a major fact was completely ignored by the same group that doesn’t believe in global warming or evolution — hard as that may be to believe.

 “In 2011 they [The GOP controlled House] came in and passed a continuing resolution for the remainder of that fiscal year. The House proposed $70 million cut in the WSP [Worldwide Security Program for the State Department] and they proposed a $204 million cut in Embassy security,” says Mr. Lilly. “Then the next year, fiscal 2012, they cut worldwide security by $145 million and embassy security by $376 million. This year’s bill is the same thing all over again. The House has cut the worldwide security budget $149 million below the request.”

Funny how that got left out…a lot like money for embassy security.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
