I think if President Barack Obama proposed a balanced budget in return for taxing the wealthy, a compromise would be attainable. As to Benghazi, either Susan Rice (on the Sunday shows after the ambassador to Libya was killed), or President Obama (in the second debate when he told Mitt Romney to read the transcript of the Rose Garden briefing with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton), is telling a falsehood.

Finally, it is impossible to believe that when Gen. David H. Petraeus was being investigated last summer, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III did not inform Attorney General Eric Holder and that Mr Holder did not let President Obama know. If they did not inform President Obama, they should both submit their resignations, before he fires them.
