Of course you did.

I read several that said they were, but it doesn't matter what gang of radical Muslims is behind the attack, does it?

Sniveling Obama sycophants like yourself see these murders as no more than 'bumps in the road'.

RNC Trounces DNC in Fundraising as Democrat Party Goes Bankrupt

The official Federal Election Committee reports for September are out, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s DNC is a complete wreck. The Democrats ended September with cash on hand of $4.6 million, compared to the Republican National Committee’s $82.6 million.

That’s nearly an 18-to-1 cash advantage for Republicans.

Worse still for the DNC, they had to take out loans to pay the bills so that they owed $20.5 million at the end of September, meaning that that (subtracting cash on hand from total debt) they were $15.9 million in the red — essentially bankrupt. Wasserman-Schultz’s committee only raised $3.7 million in September; at that pace, it would take them more than four months to clear their debt, even if they didn’t spend another dime in the meantime.

Somehow, this seems an apt metaphor for the Obama era.

Now, go back to something I reported at The American Spectator last month when I was in Ohio, and Obama was leading the polls:

DAYTON, Ohio — Reporters circled around Reince Priebus at a campaign rally Monday in Lima and one asked the Republican National Committee chairman what he thought of polls showing Mitt Romney trailing President Obama in this crucial battleground state. Priebus said he was satisfied that the GOP challenger was “within a field goal” of the incumbent, and made a bold prediction:“We’re going to outspend the DNC 10-to-1 [in Ohio] for the next six weeks… We’re going to crush ‘em on the ground.

Mother of slain Benghazi consulate staffer livid over lack of answers

Slams Bam on death of Libya-envoy son

WASHINGTON — The grieving mother of one of four Americans slain at the US Consulate in Libya was furious yesterday that the government still can’t tell her what happened a day after President Obama strangely said the tragedy was “not optimal.”

“Everyone’s giving me different answers. I don’t have good answers, and they are not giving me good answers. Some of the people [from the government] looked me right in the eye and lied to me,” said Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, a State Department technology expert who died with Ambassador Chris Stevens and two security officials in the attack in Benghazi last month.

“Somebody is lying, or else these crooks are running our country, and I don’t choose to believe that,” she told The Post by phone from her San Diego home yesterday.“My son is dead, and I don’t know why, and I don’t know why nobody went out to help my son.”

Speaking of Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the decisions made on security at the consulate, Smith said:“They’re on the top. They’re the big cheeses. If they didn’t make the decision, they should have been the ones that made the decision.”

So now the CIA is also "complicit".

I can't wait to hear what the talking heads on FOX have to say about that one. But if one of you nutjobs would like to some preemptive paraphrasing, I'm sure you'll come close.

"O" Stands for NOT OPTIMAL.

A not-optimal Presidency

‘Not optimal” is the new “Man, that really sucks.”

Don’t take our word for it — just listen to President Obama.

Speaking of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered, Barack Obama said:

“If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.”

And he said it on Comedy Central, no less.

“What happens during the course of a presidency,” Obama explained to Jon Stewart,“is that the government is a big operation and [at] any given time, something screws up.”

Or, as he put it a couple of weeks ago, sometimes a president encounters a “bump in the road.”

Of course, not everyone sees it that way.

Like Sen. John McCain:“Even from someone like the president, who has never known what these kinds of tragedies are about and the service and sacrifice that people make, it’s still just — I can’t even get angry,” he said.“It’s just so inappropriate.

“The president on that comedy show, he didn’t talk about responsibility, because the responsibility is his. We want to know what the president knew, when he knew it, and what did he do about it?”

But, hey — why knock such a conveniently short phrase? This is the Twitter age, after all.

Consider:

Ahmed Abu Khattala, one of the ringleaders of the Benghazi attack, sits in a luxury hotel sipping mango juice and giving mocking interviews to The New York Times.

Not optimal.

The State Department rejected pleas to beef up security — even as Stevens warned in secret cables of growing “targeted and discriminate attacks” and that “the al Qaeda flag has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities.”

Not optimal.

And it’s not just Benghazi.

Trillions in deficit spending?

Not optimal.

Economy mired in recession?

Not optimal.

Re-elect the president?

Most definitely, not optimal.

"....Romney was so wedded to the idea that the administration didn’t acknowledge a terrorist attack on the consulate that he managed to get some basic facts wrong on Obama’s initial statement on September 12. One would think that his campaign would have made the effort to double-check the support for one of his biggest attacks of the night."

What is the point of these Republican attacks?
We need an investigation to find out who did it, how they did it, why they did it.
Face it, Ambassador Stevens knew the risks, he wanted to work with the people of Libya, This involved personal contact & not hidden in a fortress embassy.
Did the attackers know he would be there? Do you know?
I read a report yesterday that Al Qaida was not involved. This would make many of the right totally wrong.
The Republican stance has now become its Obama's fault because he & NATO assisted the rebels and if Khadafi was still running Libya, this wouldn't have happened.
This is really sick, twisted & demented and political driven.
If you can't see it, then you are hopelessly duped.
RealDave when will Obama address the American People and give an honest assessment of what happen in Benghazi? Dave this speech will never be heard because’ Failure Not an Option ‘Obama will join his predecessor’ Carter’ as a One Term President!!
