Let's take the claims one by one:
Not the same thing as Obama leaving Ambassador Stevens in a dangerous situation,
Obama didn't do so personally, but he must have been aware of the previous attacks. It's his responsibility in the end.
refusing to upgrade security
More of a State Dept issue, but one could make the argument Obama is ultimately responsible as CIC.
and then refusing to send recsue
More of a CIA issue, though see above on Obama's ultimate responsibility.
When an Ambassador is missing, when a consulate is under attack, the President knows about it.
Most likely true.
In fact, he admits he knew.
I'm not sure what he admitted knowing, and when he knew it.
It was streamed live into the WH, Pentagon, and State Dept.
I don't know that the WH and Pentagon got a live feed. My understanding it was only the State Dept and CIA.
The bottom line is that Obama was more interested in his campaign than in the lives of those he endangered in Benghazi.
I find that hard to believe.
Then he lied about it and sent Amb. Rice out to lie about it.
Then he lied about lying.
That certainly seems to be the case. We know that the administration new this was terror within mere hours. There was no evidence of any kind that this was a protest or mob action gone wrong. Yet, Rice and other officials parroted this line on five Sunday talk shows, in other interviews, etc. Hillary Clinton blamed the video and renounced it. Obama blamed the video at the UN. Someone definitely changed the story, and it appears to be for political reasons.
If he was a republican you would be jumping up and down screaming for an special investigator.
I don't know what muppetry would do, but I imagine the media would make it bigger than Watergate and Iran-Contra combined.
