Anybody who exposes leaders who shred the Constitution and command a government that attempts to conduct massive and secret and continual surveillance of its own citizens is a patriot. Snowden, not Pope Francis, should have been chosen Person of the Year.

Patience is a great virtue.

("fairly" fair). And I think BW referred to Snowden as "blindingly brilliant". Which came across in spades in the tv interview.

I also believe (along with what appears to be a majority of American citizens) that when Snowden says he tried other avenues to raise concerns, he is telling the truth. And that when the NSA says he did not, they are lying [what are the odds of THAT, huh?]. Snowden doesn't dare come home, in any case - they would find a way to "off" him.

Snowden should just wait it out for 2 years and a different prez. This SHOULD be an issue in the 2016 campaign. They will all try to dodge the subject, but I want each and every presidential candidate to have to comment on this NSA spying.

I was also glad to see Daniel Ellsberg [google Pentagon Papers] weigh in on this, on Snowden's side.

Do you really think that President Hilary Clinton will welcome this traitorous bastard home in 2016?

Is going to survive the scandal of Benghazi. After all "What Difference Does It Make"
Also, Explain how Snowdon is a traitor? Just so I'm clear about you're reasoning.

What Benghazi scandal? The one your Teabaggy friends keep trying to keep alive in order to attack her instead of doing anything at all in Congress? Whatever happened to your "Laser-Like Focus on Jobs"? How about you work on finding a candidate that doesn't suck instead of wasting my tax dollars on this bullshit?

Where 4 Americans died, remember? Oh! wait I know, "What Difference Does It Make"

Oh, you mean that thing we're supposed to care about and ignore all the other embassy security failures UNDER REPUBLICANS?

Affect the Right, but it will affect Hillary.

No, it won't, because 60 deaths while Bush was in office don't matter but 4 under Obama do? Sorry, Sparky, but anyone with two functioning brain cells will go "um wait a minute, why are these moronic Republicans wasting our tax dollars when all this happened under Bush and there weren't dozens of hearings over each incident?"

It is, however, entertaining to watch you continue to deny reality and whitewash history wherever it benefits you.

People are not buying this blame it on Bush anymore. It's all about what you're President hasn't done, and the scandals that will be attributed to him for life. Like your side say's, Bush is old news. What this President and administration has done has turned the tide.

Who said anything about blaming Bush?

The point being made, which I thought your tiny brain inside your thick pointy head would have comprehended, is that SIXTY, 60 people died in embassy attacks while he was in office, and 4 while Obama was in office, and you and your right-wing Tea-tarded friends are wasting millions of tax dollars on Benghazi while there was not one fucking peep out of you about any of those deaths during the Bush Era. In other words, you're just out to waste tax dollars to play partisan politics, which is COMPLETELY WRONG when Democrats do it but perfectly fine when you do it. Everyone who isn't retarded like you can spot the contradiction and isn't buying it, while you are content to follow the lead of FOX News and cry BENGHAZI! BENGHAZI! over and over like some attention-whoring child.

Guess what, dumbass? Your grand strategy won't work, and you won't convince enough people to give a shit.

Those people died in the line of duty. These 4 died while in the line of duty but Your President and Hillary watched and did nothing to save them. Another reason is an American ambassador died in the attack, and they lied about it to cover up.

For someone who is obsessed with BENGHAZI, you ought to know nothing could have been done in time BECAUSE YOU FUCKING REPUBLICANS CUT THE BUDGET.

Also, want to place odds on at least one of the attacks under Bush happening while Chimpy McFlightsuit was cutting brush on his Texas ranch? If you want to go down the road of "did nothing to save them", all I need to do is point out that George Dumbass Bush was ON FUCKING VACATION during Katrina and couldn't get off his ass to save AMERICAN CITIZENS, let alone EVEN GET HIS ASS BACK TO DC AND LOOK BUSY.

If you persist in your stupidity, well, there's a whole pile of dead people in New York City who want to know where the fuck Bush was when he got the "bin Laden Determined to Strike US" daily briefing he ignored. OH FUCKING WAIT BUSH WAS ON VACATION IN CRAWFORD, SO MUCH FOR TRYING TO MAKE OBAMA LOOK LIKE HE DIDN'T CARE.

Sorry DTOM, you fucking lose, now go run and cry to Mommy and FreeRepublic about how the meanie AC beat you up online.

Why not, she'll go along with anything.
