The house of cards was abut to collapse & when insiders stated bailing, it started a flood. It had nothing to do with politics. At that time McCain was already losing.
Speaking of bailing (out): "A new report running Thursday in The Nation finds that Romney and his wife, Ann, made at least $15.3 million -- and perhaps tens of millions more -- as a result of bailout funds paid to General Motors. The story, an early copy of which was provided to The Huffington Post, is written by investigative reporter Greg Palast and was backed by the The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute.

Romney's windfall from the bailout is directly tied to his relationship with Paul Singer, the billionaire hedge fund manager who donated $1 million to the Republican's presidential campaign in April. As The Nation reports, the Romneys invested at least $1 million with Singer's fund, Elliott Management, which is known for investing in distressed or bankrupt companies.

One of those bankrupt companies was Delphi, an auto parts maker that hit financial trouble after being spun off from its former parent, GM. Singer's fund bought up a controlling interest in Delphi for about 67 cents a share on average, The Nation calculates. By last November, Delphi's initial public offering was priced at $22 a share, thanks in part by efforts to cut costs by moving operations overseas and employing non-union workers. Delphi's stock price has continued to take off, with shares closing around $32 as of this week.

But that profit was also greatly bolstered by Delphi's lingering ties to GM, which depended on the company for essential auto parts. The Nation reports:

The Treasury allowed GM to give Delphi at least $2.8 billion of funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to keep Delphi in business. GM also forgave $2.5 billion in debt owed to it by Delphi, and $2 billion due from Singer and company upon Delphi’s exit from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The money GM forgave was effectively owed to the Treasury, which had by then become the majority owner of GM as a result of the bailout. Then there was the big one: the government’s Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation took over paying all of Delphi’s retiree pensions. The cost to the taxpayer:$5.6 billion. The bottom line: the hedge funds’ paydays were made possible by a generous donation of $12.9 billion from US taxpayers.

Since the Romneys had at least $1 million invested with Elliott by the end of 2010, with a third of that portfolio likely in Delphi, The Nation estimates that they made at a minimum $15.3 million off Delphi's resurgence.

As Phillip Martin has previously reported, Romney also profited heavily from the bailout thanks to Bain's investment in Sensata Technologies, which makes electronic parts for cars. He has been able to avoid paying taxes on some of those gains by transferring nearly a million dollars of Sensata stock to his own tax-sheltered nonprofit. Now that the taxpayer has helped save Bain's company, the Romney-founded private equity giant is returning the favor by shutting down an Illinois Sensata factory and shipping the production to China. Some of the 170 workers who are losing their livelihoods have been arrested in attempts to persuade Romney to use his influence to halt the outsourcing. Romney has declined to do so."

Hey midget get lost.
Real-time video proves Susan Rice lied about the Benghazi attacks.

Now, just which are you going to believe? The actual video of the attack? Or, some Democrat politician trying to cover Obama's lying ass?

If you noticed, Obama isn't in any hurry to get the terrorists arrested and being held in foreign countries extradited to the United States.
Looking at the details of the assault, it seems Al Qaeda didn't intend to kill the ambassador. Stevens died of smoke inhalation in the safe-room. They were trying to smoke him out while they had heavy weapons like RPGs at their immediate disposal. If they wanted to kill Stevens, they would have just blown the door open and lit him up.
But, that's not what they did. They dumped diesel fuel near the door and set it on fire. Stevens died of smoke inhalation.

Looks like Al Qaeda's plan was to kidnap the ambassador.
Then, the Muslim Brotherhood would get the terrorist that bombed the WTC the first time in exchange for an American ambassador.... right before the election.

Looks like another of Obama's October surprises blew up in his face.
Seriously, do you really want this level of incompetence to continue running our country?

Sure and as long as everyone else is revising you might as well throw in your plug nickel right?

The Paris peace accords ended the fighting in Vietnam don't you remember Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho each receiving the Nobel Peace Price for their, cough, negotiated peace agreement. Perhaps you recall that Le Duc Tho refused to accept his prize. Perhaps you also recall that he bytche slapped Henry Kissinger. 1973 was tough year for Nixon and Company__Gerald Ford would relieve the disgraced Nixon in 1974.
