    If there is nothing to hide, and the Rs will look foolish, why are the Ds so much in favor of burying the whole thing?

    Do those who believe that there is nothing to see in Benghazi also believe the same of the IRS, F&F, IRS audits of the administration's enemies? Have we asked if those "improvements" at GSA & other wasteful agencies have actually occurred?

    When the Iran-Contra scandal broke, Reagan simply admitted it occurred on national TV. The voters accepted his honesty, and forgave the poor judgment. If it turns out that this administration "caused" this Benghazi incident by shipping arms to the Syrian rebels, will that change any of your opinions as to why it was covered up. Certainly would have burned Reagan at the stake if he had followed the path of cover-up. Can we deny that it was our intervention in Libya that got toppled Gaddafi, that put those weapons into the hands of the attackers to begin with?

    There are 3 or 4 posters who have never disagreed with ANYthing this administration has done. The most that will be said is that some R did the same thing first ... so that evidently gives a dispensation to any D who does the same nefarious thing.

    This administration and its henchmen (Reid, Pelosi, & some notable others) have done a great job of suppressing free speech of opponents. As an example, if you disagree with an Obama policy, you are racist. That is applied even if you happen to have an inter-racial family! The reporter who made fun of Romney's family ... was she fired? Was she a racist? If you dare to disagree with any of the models on global warming, you are a Flat-Earther, even if you are a reputable scientist.

    When the Iran-Contra scandal broke Reagan went on National TV and lied to the public. On top of that the Reagan administration lied to investigators and destroyed documents. Reagan did the exact same thing the Obama administration is accused of doing, he wasn't burnt at the stake.

    Gerry,
    It's called setting a precedent. What's good for the goose is good for the gander regards.

    Then, should we make the same mistake twice?

    There were also people who wanted to continue slavery because it was a precedent. Didn't make it right.

    I am curious what the folks here were saying about the Iran-Contra scandal. Were they wanting to impeach Reagan, or just look the other way?

    I would say that there are at least 5 times as many posters who if you put a gun to their heads couldn't come up with a single thing that this administration HASN'T done wrong.

    How many that are here find fault in everything this or any other Democrat president does or has done? Yet defend the Republicans to no end. The hypocrisy is maddening.

    Not sure what you mean by twice. In Iran Contra we had an investigation found out the Reagan was lying and there was a cover-up (you chose to rewrite history). I am in favor of a full Benghazi investigation, however even if it proves that Obama was very much involved the Democrats will act the same way you did with Reagan.

    The R's will keep having committees until they get one that says what they want hear. They like their facts like they like their news, slanted to their way of thinking.
