    I was quite dissappointed that your questions relating to the two billion dollar weekly cost of the war in Afghanistan were routinely dismissed by both Secretaries Clinton and Panetta. Why do we allow these supposedly responsible federal officials to answer a direct question with vague tangents, or more generally with the answer to the question they prefer to answer. What is clear and unequivocal is that the majority of the American people do not want to continue with this adventure. Why are the wishes of the American people abandoned by their politicians? Are we not a nation where the majority rules? Is it not incumbent upon elected politicians to resign if they are unable to support the majority?

      Actually, the correct figure is two billion per week.

    I just saw the love fest yolu had with Hiliary and Panetta–disgusting. While I am pointing out how fair and balanced your "reporting" is lets talk about the "scandals". Now if Solindra, gun running by justice Dept (fast and furious), Gsa run wild, and the secret service also running wild had occured say 6 or 7 years ago you would be tieing all to how poorly old W was running the govt. However now with his Majesty running the ship these are all just isolated and relatively inconsequetial occurences. Really you people are a joke when you call yourselves a news source.

    In light of the GSA splurge off the taxpayers, maybe you could find out how many trips Panetta has taken flying on private jets at the tax payers expense.

    Goverment spending is out of hand..We are in a trillion dollar deficiet, and spending is still going on, like there is no tomorrow. And there may not be, if Jesus Christ returns.This Las Vegas trip is financed by "Goverment money, which the people of America financed. I think the ones that did this ought to pay it back, or/and go to jail...As I see it They "stole " from "the people"' . As bad as the enconmy is,, this trip should have never been approvedI have to live within my means, why doesn't the US Government.

    Blitzer, now that you have finished bullying Hilary Rosen, are you going to bully the Romneys into apologizing for the vicious,violent comments of Ted Nugent, whose endorsement Romney sought?

    Man up Blitzer!

      I agree Linda. I don't care for Wolfs style of interviewing at all. Someone needs to grill him.
