Barack Obama, our next President

Admitting to a terrorist attack on 9/11 with four dead Americans including an ambassador wouldn't help his chances for reelection.

He had more pressing fundraiser events to attend anyway.
But if he had misquoted there would have been fault found too. He was damned either way. Tough spot

How would blaming a video, when everyone already knew that it was a terrorist attack, protect national security?
You don't know what the President knew. You weren't there. President Obama is a very wise man. He knew the best thing to do and the best things to say to protect the remaining foreign diplomats. When you're dealing with terrorists you have to be politically savvy or people die.

What a difference a disaster makes.

Where last week President Obama was listless, passive, crotchety, tonight in New York he had a noticeable spring in his step. A swagger, even. In what may turn out to be the most replayed snippet of all three debates, Obama invited Mitt Romney to attack him over the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.“Please proceed, governor,” he said, cockily. Romney bungled the attack — the low-information viewer was led to believe Obama and his staff were never in doubt the attack was planned and perpetrated by terrorists — and even managed to praise the president for taking responsibility for it.

Romney’s was an unforgivable whiff. Surely he is kicking himself as I write.(A lot of conservative ire on this exchange will be directed at CNN moderator Candy Crowley. In her defense, I think she attempted balance in her intervention; she noted that the president used the words “act of terror” but also defended Romney’s assertion that the administration continued to peddle the “spontaneous demonstration” canard.)

Approximately 30% of all American children are born into single-parent homes, and for the black community, that figure is 68%;
• Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness, suicide, poor educational performance, teen pregnancy, and criminality, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Center for Health Statistics.
• Over half of all children living with a single mother are living in poverty, a rate 5 to 6 times that of kids living with both parents;
• Child abuse is significantly more likely to occur in single parent homes than in intact families;
• 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census;
• 72% of adolescent murderers grew up without fathers. 60% of America's rapists grew up the same way according to a study by D. Cornell (et al.), in Behavioral Sciences and the Law;
• 63% of 1500 CEOs and human resource directors said it was not reasonable for a father to take a leave after the birth of a child;
• 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes according to the National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools;
• 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes according to a report in Criminal Justice & Behavior;
• In single-mother families in the U.S. about 66% of young children live in poverty;
• 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes;
• Children from low-income, two-parent families outperform students from high-income, single-parent homes. Almost twice as many high achievers come from two-parent homes as one-parent homes according to a study by the Charles F. Kettering Foundation.
• 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes according to a study by the Center for Disease Control;
• Of all violent crimes against women committed by intimates about 65% were committed by either boy-friends or ex-husbands, compared with 9 % by husbands;
• Girls living with non-natal fathers (boyfriends and stepfathers) are at higher risk for sexual abuse than girls living with natal fathers;
• Daughters of single mothers are 53% more likely to marry as teenagers, 111% more likely to have children as teenagers, 164% more likely to have a premarital birth and 92% more likely to dissolve their own marriages.
• A large survey conducted in the late 1980s found that about 20% of divorced fathers had not seen his children in the past year, and that fewer than 50% saw their children more than a few times a year.
• Juvenile crime, the majority of which is committed by males, has increased six-fold since 1992;
• In a longitudinal study of 1,197 fourth-grade students, researchers observed "greater levels of aggression in boys from mother-only households than from boys in mother-father households," according to a study published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology.
• The Scholastic Aptitude Test scores have declined more than 70 points in the past two decades; children in single-parent families tend to score lower on standardized tests and to receive lower grades in school according to a Congressional Research Service Report.

<quoted text>To quote Biden, "That's a bunch of malarkey!"

He's covering up why security was removed from Libya when a well-orchestrated terrorist attack was known to be brewing on the anniversary of 9/11 under his watch resulting in four dead Americans.

If he had admitted to all of this, he knew he wouldn't have recovered politically this close to an election.

It's all about fooling the easily fooled to get votes. That's all it's ever been about.
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!!

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.

Hope you are a regular on this Board. Nice to finally have found someone else speaking intelligently!
There are some important differences:

1) Bush called it a terrorist attack for day one and never called it anything else.
2) Bush took immediate action.
3) Bush didn't throw his adminstration under the bus.

Is that really your response?

You just criticized Romney for not serving in the military but neither did Obama or Clinton before they became the president.

If Romney is elected, he will then be the CIC and as high up in the military as you can get too. So it all works out.

Too late, Candy.

We are willing to accept that Obama KNEW it was a terrorist attack and then spent the next 8 days lying to us that it was about a video.

The ugly truth is finally out!
