Nice job of Biden throwing the CIA under the bus and Hillary falling on her sword.
I am really shocked this was not blamed on Bush by Axlerod.

It has been four years-this only works for the hard-core dems.

People prefer a president who assumes responsibility after four years and 3 1/2 years after the recession ended. This is hurting Obama.

None of these supported protestors-all were in the compound. We all have seen the stomach turning cell phone photos of Stevens.
Again I repeat the St Dept testified that they had real time accounts of what was happening and compound video -there was no protest.
Stay on topic ok?

The State Department did not have real time video, what you saw was cell phone video from Libyan bystanders and perhaps some media.
The FBI recovered the closed circuit videos during the first week of October, weeks after the assault.

It was the owner/landlord of the building that was reporting the protesters__it was reported in the DailyMail and on CNN.

What you are not grasping is that after the evacuations, there were no Americans there to report back to the State Department, all the information was coming from friendly Libyans and the media.

Stevens died of smoke inhalation, the videos were of friendly Libyans rushing his body to a vehicle and then a hospital__did you find that stomach turning?

Look for the vitriol from the left to increase substantially as it suddenly dawns on them for the second time in as many weeks exactly why we have referred to them as hapless,moronic obamabots for the last four years.

There is that fuzzy reality again.
If OBama had came out and stated it was a terrorist attack that killed four people rather than blaming it on a video people would have been deeply concern.
However, the obvious lack of security would still have been reviewed.
Obama chose to lie so he could say there had been no terrorist attacks on his watch.
But President Starky told us it was a protest over a youtube video that got out of hand.

You do realize that that in all but the last two months of the 2008 campaign, the economic situation was not yet known.
It wasn't until the Bush news conference that he dire situation was known.
Its like you telling your wife that you would fix the garage door tomorrow & then a tornado rips off your roof. You spend two days fixing the roof, walk in the kitchen & your wife calls you a liar for not fixing he garage door.
Good point, just the thought of Uh-bama being president was enough to bring the economy to a screeching halt.

I think Romney will stick with what worked the during the first debate and what Obama lacks -a plan to get the US thriving again.

Pounding on your opponent only goes so far, people need to hear about what you are going to do.

Obama had made Romney into such a monster that all Romney had to do the last debate is to prove he didn't belch fire or that his head didn't spin around periodically.

The vagina monologues has hit a sour note also. The DNC telling women to vote with their lady parts brought it all to an ugly head. I rather vote with my lady smarts.

Underscoring just how hard a political lift Mitt Romney's tax reform plan would be if pursued, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said on Tuesday that he would be uncomfortable with any plan that cut down some of the biggest deductions.

"There will be a very helpful debate about whether things like the charitable deduction, the health insurance premium, the home interest deduction should be part of the deal," Rubio told a crowd of journalists at a Bloomberg View event. "I don't think that those, especially the home interest deduction,[reducing that] is troubling, because it really helps the middle class. Do you really want to hurt charitable giving in a country when you are saying that you want to rely less on government and more on private institutions to deal with these issues? And how are you going to raise taxes on people on their health care premiums when you are saying you want there to be a system in place where folks can have more control over their own money?"

Rubio's analysis of who benefits from these deductions is correct. It is primarily the lower and middle class. But politically, his statement throws cold water on Romney's tax reform plan. Without touching the charitable, home interest, or health care deductions, there isn't even close to enough revenue to pay for a 20-percent across the board rate cut of the kind that the Republican nominee has pledged -- even including those exemptions and deductions doesn't get you close. A recent Joint Committee on Taxation report suggested that including those exemptions and deductions would get you toward 4 percent of the cost.
