Doesn't it concern you that terrorists are funding the Kenyan's campaign?
CAMPAIGN FINANCE: Obama campaign’s illegal foreign donations. If he were a Republican, this would lead the network news, complete with footage of reporters making illegal donations under fake names. Since he’s a Democrat, they’re doing their best to ignore it.

The biggest intelligence blunder in American history was virtually ignored by Republicans who now want us to crucify Obama for the events of Benghazi. Where was the Republican outrage over the faulty intel that sent thousands of American troops to their death and cost us billions of dollars searching for non-existant weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Can you name right wing hypocrite that demanded an immediate investigation over that colossal Republican led disaster?

Why would you think adjectives like that have ANYTHING to do with the economy? Again, you pretend to miss a valid point while trying to confuse the issue.
It's the economy that is the most important aspect of this particular election, NOT some congressman's description of rape.
But go ahead, keep trying to point away from Obama's many failings over the past 4 years.
Because when Republicans get elected, they legislate abortion, not the economy.

Well, I don't read something and twist it around to mean something else like you just did. What's wrong with your thinking if you can't read words and catch their meaning without adding your own warped twist to all of them. You have a real comprehension problem so you just make up what you THINK people mean.
The meaning was clear.

What Happened in Benghazi
Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”
Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking. At the present time, it does appear that the “Innocence of Muslims” video did play a role in the attack and the contention that it was a fully-orchestrated al-Qaeda event seems unlikely.

I was in Rome Station when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was occupied. The CIA went on full alert worldwide and we followed suit. I rather suspect that every Iranian official or businessman in Italy that we could get our hands on was interviewed three times. The reports went in to Washington, together with thousands of others. While the effort sounds silly in retrospect, I do recall that there were some Iranians in Rome who had significant information on the students who had led the takeover. My point is that intelligence is a complicated process and cherry picking raw intelligence reports relating to a developing situation might well produce whatever you want to find, but it will not necessarily reveal the truth.

Racist Maya Angelou Schlepping For Obama Re-election Sends Campaign Letter:“Go, Rise Up”

Dear XXXXXXXX,

I am not writing to you as a black voter, or a woman voter, or as a voter who is over 70 years old and six feet tall. I am writing to you as a representative of this great country — as an American.[WRONG!]

It is your job to vote. It is your responsibility, your right, and your privilege. You may be pretty or plain, heavy or thin, gay or straight, poor or rich.

But remember this: In an election, every voice is equally powerful — don’t underestimate your vote. Voting is the great equalizer.

Your vote might make the difference. Don’t fool around with this — get the information you need to vote in this election.

As a country, we can scarcely perceive the magnitude of our progress.

My grandmother and my uncle experienced circumstances that would break your heart. When they went to vote, they were asked impossible questions like,“How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?” When they couldn’t answer, they couldn’t vote.

I once debated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. about whether an African American would ever be elected president. He believed it would happen within the next 40 years at the time — I believed it would never happen within my lifetime.

I have never been happier to have been proven wrong.

And since President Barack Obama’s historic election, we’ve moved forward in courageous and beautiful ways. More students can afford college, and more families have access to affordable health insurance. Women have greater opportunities to get equal pay for equal work.

Yet as Rev. King wrote,“All progress is precarious.”

So don’t sit on the sidelines. Don’t hesitate. Don’t have any regrets. Vote.

Go, rise up, and find out what you need to do to vote and ask your friends to join you. We must make our voices heard:

Your vote is not only important. It’s imperative.

Thank you,

Dr. Maya Angelou

~~~~~~~~~~

Voting for a person
because he is Black

is as RACIST as

voting AGAINST someone
because he's Black

==========
The level of intellectual dishonesty within the Race-Baiting class is astounding. Dr. Maya Angelou begins her plea stating that she is not writing as a “black American”, and then goes into the entire substance of her letter framing advocacy only around “RACE”.

He still paid ten times more taxes than Obama. Maybe fifty times that of Biden. Donated ten times more to charity than Obama and 400 times more than Biden. You are the one who doesn't get it.

The DUHMbocRats have done nothing EXCEPT blahblahblah on THIRTY year old Issues---ENOUGH for FIFTY years--unlike any other admin I've ever had the displeasure of having listen to-with their repeated and CONtinually backwards WHINE, whine and whine over the past four years. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much time WASTED, with these long time NON-issues (did I mention thirty years behind the times?).

In fact--All that wasted whining time should be an example of things to add to the lists of "valid reasons to impeach" POTUS's.
