Barack Obama, our next President

He didn't protect the first diplomats! Everyone already knew that it was a terrorist attact, his blaming the video was nothing more than a cover-up.
He did not blame the video. From day one he referred to it as a terrorist attack. Others in the administration were blaming the video. The terrorists are listening to everything our politicians are saying. The remaining American citizens in the Middle East are in grave danger due to Republicans constantly politicizing this event. It's time we put this tragic incident behind us and get back to the business of getting our President re-elected.

Oh my. Where are you getting your information? There have been security threats on 9/11 since the World Trade Centers attack. Where else would you like security increased on that date? Should we close all government agencies? Churches? Keep kids home from schools? Be realistic! Or, be Mormon and stockpile-food and wives!!
I and the rest of the country have their information directly from the State Department.

Obama and his "partners in political crime" were apparently the only ones who didn't get the memo.

But 14 days later still covering up what the State Department clearly knew within a 24 hour period is deceiving the American public for political gain. It's that plain and simple.

Romney spun his tires in the mud trying to distance himself from Bush and proclaiming how different he is , then Obama KO's him by explaining the ways that Bush is superior to Romney , PRICELESS ! OBAMA WON !
Romney's only mistake was not reminding that audience member who asked the question that Bush was not the culprit in the housing market collapse nor was he responsible for the attacks on 9/11. Not only did Bush repeatedly try to warn Congress of the impending Fannie and Freddie crisis but Democrats increased the deficit by supporting both wars too.

For Obama to get his back up against the wall and act all self-righteous and everything for Romney even hinting he and his administration covered up the truth about the terrorist attacks will come back to haunt him big time.

It is an indisputable fact that children are better off when they have two parents involved in their lives. Studies show that a critical factor in healthy emotional development is the amount of contact that children have with both parents.
A two-parent home is the ideal but even close interaction with both parents in a divorce is crucial.
Robert Bauserman, PhD, of the Baltimore Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, reviewed 33 studies that examined 1,846 sole-custody and 814 joint-custody children. Bauserman found that children in joint-custody arrangements had fewer behavioral and emotional problems, higher self-esteem and better family relationships and school performance compared with those in sole-custody situations. The contact with both parents, he argues, is the key ingredient in kids' adjustment, he said.
There are always exceptions but it doesn't change the statistics.
Too many children today don't even know who their father is.
The question was about the assault weapons ban that expired. He didn't answer the question
And so it goes

CNN very somber at this time.

Cutting back on all fronts doesn't mean cutting back security where it is most needed.

The cuts were never even voted on.

It's the Democrats who want to gut the military down to the bare bones.

Get your hypocrisy straight.

Despite that warning, Mr Stevens did not ask for more U.S. troops, and commented that Benghazi officials believed the city was becoming safer.

What egg?

Obama just cheered Candy-vocally told her she was right that he said it was terrorism- so Obama knew from the start it was a terrorist attack.

How does Obama then explain to us about lying that was about a video for the next 8 days.

By tomorrow all journalist will be complaining bitterly about Candy doing this and I cannot wait for Carney to try to spin this.

And now: CNN walks back false “act of terror” fact check. Candy Crowley now admitting Romney was right on Pres. Obama's Libya remarks. CNN's Anderson Cooper says that Obama / Crowley were wrong on #Libya statemetn.#Benghazi was not called an act of terror in Rose Garden.

So Sonic you were just going to go with the O'bama script and lie as long as O'bama did? Good for you. America does not like liars.

You just criticized Romney for not serving in the military but neither did Obama or Clinton before they became the president.
Clinton and Obama were never drafted. After four deferments, draft-dodger Rmoney decided to move to France because he felt he was "too important to go to Vietnam".

Obama didn't answer quite a few himself. Which is why I said there were more questions unanswered than answered.

It's always the same problem with town hall debates.

There's never enough time or proper moderating to give either candidate a chance to respond to the accusations made.

A wasted debate.
