Barack Obama, our next President

Nice move, Barack! Just what your campaign needs to do...alienate more voters!

"An outspoken critic of Israel who once said the Jewish state should be added to the list of 9/11 terror suspects was recently selected by the Obama administration to participate in an international forum on human rights -- sparking outcry from watchdog groups."

Check out this statement from the debate?

"The way we're going to create jobs here is not just changing our tax code, but also to double our exports. And we are on pace to double our exports, one of the commitments I made when I was president. That's creating tens of thousands of jobs all across the country."

Pay special note to this: "one of the commitments I made when I was president."

I think Obama's getting the idea.

No one should have ever know what unit killed Bin laden. Two months after Obama and Biden bragged about it, a helicopter carrying 20 members of Seal 6, 20 other military members and a service dog was shot out of the sky and all aboard were killed.

After Biden chanted in Charolette, the last week of August, "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead"...they waited till 9/11 and killed four Americans in Libya. The protestors all over the middle east were chanting "Obama! We are Bin Laden!"

Maybe there was a reason GW Bush did not kill Bin Laden, if it was going to cost American lives?

And nothing is being done to free the Pakastani doctor who helped with intelligence.

Yes, Obama keeps sending money to the Muslim Brotherhood president of Eqypt. The Friday after the 9/11/12 protests, Obama ordered a wire transfer of $450 Million, that's a 1/2 Billion, to be sent to Eqypt. Kay Granger, a member of the subcommittee for foreign affairs noted it and informed congressmen still in the building and they 'put it on hold for now.'

Obama's arrogance is astounding.

The rumor is that Obama and his people arranged the Benghazi attack, but it was to be a hostage situation and he would 'rescue' the ambassador and others right before Nov. 1. But the terrorists got carried away and killed them. I didn't believe it. But after 6 weeks of mixed up stories and new details, I'm beginning to wonder.

And why is Hillary in exile?

From the Desk of:
L. Brent Bozell III, Founder and President
Media Research Center

October 17th, 2012

Last night, in what was the most stunning and disgraceful single example of moderator malpractice in the history of presidential debates, CNN's Candy Crowley allowed Barack Obama to lie to the American people about his administration's Libya cover-up.

Even worse, she then validated this lie of extraordinary magnitude by certifying it as honest and by attacking Mitt Romney when he pressed the president on his administration's cover-up.

Crowley robbed tens of millions of Americans of the truth on national primetime television. Real journalists – who were fed the Obama Administration's Libya lies for two weeks – should be furious.

Crowley was solely responsible for choosing the questions, meaning that it was her decision that there be only one question about Libya and nothing about anything else dealing with foreign policy.

Her question selection process was typically left wing. Going into Tuesday night's debate, the Media Research Center has documented that since 1992, moderators have called upon voters with a liberal agenda twice as often as those with a conservative agenda.

The citizens selected by Crowley matched that tilt exactly, with six pro-Obama/liberal-themed questions, vs. three pro-Romney questions, and two others scored as neutral.

Crowley was an utter disaster last night, and was, by far, the worst moderator of the 2012 election.

The Libya cover-up continues, and the national news media need to start asking some tough questions – including questions about one of their own.

If Obama was correct that on Day 1 he said it was a terrorist attack, why did his UN ambassador say on five different national interviews that it was a YouTube video that was responsible, and who put her up to it? If he saw this as a terrorist attack from the very beginning, why did the president himself blame it on a video six times during a UN speech?

Why has he made the statement so many times, as has Hillary Clinton, as has Jay Carney, as have others?

And why did Candy Crowley validate this lie?

If the national media don't start asking these questions soon, they also will be guilty of enabling a massive cover-up.
**********

Bulletin: The national news media is asking these questions and have been hashing it over all day.

I agree! Things like that should be kept secret. Classified if you will. WHY were so many pros on one flight? Anything he does is questionable to me from now on! I do NOT trust any of them... I believe Bush had his reasons of not killing him, or he may have already been dead, of natural causes, that has been rumored also.

Don't know about Hilary. Maybe tying up loose ends?

"I understand that I can get this country on track again. We don't have to settle for what we're going through. We don't have to settle for gasoline at four bucks. We don't have to settle for unemployment at a chronically high level. We don't have to settle for 47 million people on food stamps. We don't have to settle for 50 percent of kids coming out of college not able to get work. We don't have to settle for 23 million people struggling to find a good job.

" I think you know better. I think you know that these last four years haven't been so good as the president just described and that you don't feel like your confident that the next four years are going to be much better either.

I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you're going to get. You're going to get a repeat of the last four years. We just can't afford four more years like the last four years.

He said that by now we'd have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work.

I wasn't the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president's plan. Didn't get there.

He said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security, because he pointed out they're on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He'd get that done. He hasn't even made a proposal on either one.

He said in his first year he'd put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges. Didn't even file it.

This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he'd do. He said that he'd cut in half the deficit. He hasn't done that either. In fact, he doubled it. He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It's gone up by $2,500 a year. And if Obamacare is passed, or implemented -- it's already been passed -- if it's implemented fully, it'll be another $2,500 on top.

"The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, "Look, I've created 5 million jobs." That's after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country. The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans.

There are more people in poverty, one out of six people in poverty.

How about food stamps? When he took office, 32 million people were on food stamps. Today, 47 million people are on food stamps. How about the growth of the economy? It's growing more slowly this year than last year, and more slowly last year than the year before.

The president wants to do well. I understand. But the policies he's put in place from Obamacare to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies, these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have.

You might say, "Well, you got an example of one that worked better?" Yeah, in the Reagan recession where unemployment hit 10.8 percent, between that period -- the end of that recession and the equivalent of time to today, Ronald Reagan's recovery created twice as many jobs as this president's recovery. Five million jobs doesn't even keep up with our population growth. And the only reason the unemployment rate seems a little lower today is because of all the people that have dropped out of the workforce.

The president has tried, but his policies haven't worked. He's great as a -- as a -- as a speaker and describing his plans and his vision. That's wonderful, except we have a record to look at. And that record shows he just hasn't been able to cut the deficit, to put in place reforms for Medicare and Social Security to preserve them, to get us the rising incomes we need. Median income is down $4,300 a family and 23 million Americans out of work. That's what this election is about. It's about who can get the middle class in this country a bright and prosperous future and assure our kids the kind of hope and optimism they deserve.
