Not really. Cruz was asked a substantive policy question and could have given a substantive answer but decided to rant and vent instead.

Ask yourself about the morality of using the deaths of Americans to further a political cause. Which -which NUMEROUS Republicans have now admitted this was the entire reason for the committee and the hearings.
Playing fast and loose with the definition of numerous aren't you?

He certainly could have.

It is interesting that even my most liberal and left leaning friends have acknowledged just how blatantly slanted these moderators were. Especially when compared to the DEM debate.

I am actually surprised there are still so many of you clinging to the idea that there is no media bias.

To each his own I guess.

Obama: If GOPers Can't Handle CNBC Moderators, They Can't Handle Putin

This statement from Obama might hold some weight if HE could handle Putin. He has demonstrated time after time that he can't.

What's never been revealed is who is responsible for coming up with the lie about the video -- clearly it was high up.

It was surreal watching President Obama as he honestly seems to think he has bested Putin. What a sad joke this man is.

No need to giggle like a schoolgirl inside because this has nothing to do with "lecturing" or "morality"

In fact, Hillary told the Egyptian Prime Minister the day after the attacks, “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack. Not a protest.” Hillary tried to state that she had actually told people that some people were pinning the attack on the video, but she herself pinned the attacks on the YouTube video in videos released in Pakistan. She lied, because it was obvious that she had failed in her central duty to protect her diplomats in the most dangerous part of the world—a part of the world she had made more dangerous with her favorite invasion.

Hillary Clinton's 5 Biggest Lies in Her Benghazi Testimony - Breitbart

Maybe you should do some research and figure out if somebody lied.

I personally won't be beating the dead horse at this point, most Americans (left or right) don't really care about Benghazi hearing, so it doesn't seem like "truth" really matters.

I won't lecture anybody about "morality", but I do want to elect somebody with a clean conscience or at least somebody can be a caring Commander in Chief.

I think we should have a poll about who is mis-perceiving. I think we should have it exactly one-year from today.

My personal opinion is that Mrs. Clinton has loads of experience and detail that these GOP candidates can only dream of having. Ben Carson just spews word salad about issues. Trump speaks in vague generalities.

I don't care if you giggle or not.

and I don't care if you use some public argument to blame republicans for the lies democrats tell.


the facts are the facts.

democrats do not place morality on any action. unless it is a republican acting badly. demcrats place moral value on achieving some end goal. period.

just own it.
