Thank you, Big G, for that tidbit of lame information. Now, read the blog and the record from past elections. Oh, I know. It doesn't look so good for Romney does it? Sucks to be you. Keep posting like made. How much longer before you're without power and we don't have to hear your senseless babble?

Obama refuses to answer question re Benghazi, and flip flopping his story. "We didn't know, It was a protest to that movie., I said from the beginning it was a Terrorist attack" Al Qaeda said it was their attack 2 hours after it happened.Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.

New Explosive Benghazi Allegations: CIA Operators Told to ‘Stand Down’ During Attack As 3 Urgent Requests for Military Back-Up Were Denied.“Joe Biden to Father of Former Navy SEAL Killed in Benghazi:‘Did Your Son Always Have Balls the Size of Cue Balls?’”

Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire….The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

You have written some good posts, and I agree with you on several points. His economic policies have us in better shape than Europe is in. Have you forgotten that all of the 2008 candidates were proposing stimulus packages? Have you also forgotten that the Executive branch is only 1 part of government?
You mistakenly think that because I'm not a Republican or Democrat cheerleader, willing to jump on a partisan blame game merry-go-round that I'm a liberal Obamaphile.
Neither dyed in the wool Republicans/Democrats conservatives/liberals concede when they are wrong, you know that. Maybe they believe that objectivity is a sign of weakness, but I'm typically seeing it far more from the arch-conservatives who consider everyone not far right-wing to be socialistic and anti-American.
Your civil and well-thoughtout response is very much appreciated.

However, it's really very simple. Yes, the global economy is also shaky but America has always led the way as being a stabilizing economic force.

We either choose more of the same with Congress never finding any common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best - or we choose someone who will enact long overdue major reforms and who will work with both sides to find common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best.

I'm going with the latter. It's a no-brainer to me. But, then again, apparently some disagree.

What a Leader! What a CiC!

“When [Obama] came over to our little area” at Andrew Air Force Base, says Woods,“he kind of just mumbled, you know,‘I’m sorry.’"

"His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere,‘I’m really sorry, you know, that your son died,’ but it was totally insincere, more of whining type,‘I’m sorry.’"

Woods says that shaking President Obama’s hands at his son’s memorial service was “like shaking hands with a dead fish.”

Even MSNBC and CBS say you're wrong.
It took eight years to put the various pieces of intel together Carol__and some luck. Bush's role in the final event was miniscule at best and it sure didn't help that he stated publicly that he "truly wasn't concerned."

Obama's "role in the final event was miniscule at best", and it sure didn't help that they had to drag him off a golf course and give him a jacket for the photo-op.

Wonder if he wore the same jacket while they were watching Americans die in Benghazi?

I mean according to the experts here on Topix, they didn't have a plan for anything else, right?

Sources on the ground report that four (4) mortar rounds were fired, one hit outside the building the other three landed on the building.

According to the map of Benghazi and satellite option the US consulate compound did have a bit of a defined perimeter, the annex is not identified on the map but in the ground level photos making their way around the worlds news agencies the building is in a neighborhood and surrounded closely by other buildings.

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?

Woods made clear that he isn't "mad," but that he wants to the "truth" to be told because he feels " abandoned."

Woods says he was told by military officials that the military could have "come above [the area] and completely carpeted area," and therefore saved the officials in Benghazi, Libya. But that someone gave the command for the American military not to save the lives of the Americans under attack.

"When I heard, you know, that there's a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on and obviously someone had to say, don't go rescue them. Because every person in the military--their first response [would be], we're going to go rescue them. We need to find out who it was that gave that command--do not rescue them."
