    Lovell was scheduled to appear before the Oversight and Reform Committee before the revelation of the White House emails yesterday, in which it appears obvious the Benghazi attack was spun by "all the president's men" -- and women -- so as to prevent backlash in the 2012 election cycle. Most telling was Lovell's opening statement, in which he made clear that AFRICOM knew this was not a demonstration erupting into gunfire, it was a terrorist attack, and that while military response would have been difficult, it was not the impossibility the White House later claimed.

    Democrats were conspicuously absent from the hearing -- their entire side of the dias was empty, save loud-mouth Elijah Cummings, who tried to discount Lovell's statements by claiming it was "obvious" that State believed the attack on the Benghazi compound was the Islamists' response to the so-called "anti-Muslim" you.tube video that supposedly sparkled protests throughout the Mideast that day. Lovell pointedly told Cumming, "This was no demonstration gone terribly awry. The facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack."

    Amen. May that "whump" I just heard be the sound of downfall of the Little Marxist Dictator after they finally pulled the rug out from under him.

    I doubt it. Americans are more interested in talking about racism this and racism that to care what happens to the country.

    Who's the racist today? I dunno ask RD2 he's the resident expert on keeping the debate going on and on and on . . .
