<quoted text>Got an explanation for this, dupe?

(quoted text is from one of your idiot colleagues promoting the empty chair be re-elected)

"I don't know how many times I have to repeat myself, when police investigate a crime which is the crucial time period in solving that crime ? Answer = in first 24 hrs"

We had real-time communication with the elements engaged and live video. You don't get that with the type of investigations you reference. You're attempting to compare apples with the White House hanging the Ambassador and 3 other Americans out to dry, and WATCHING IT ON LIVE VIDEO.
Besides, the FBI has the recordings made in the consulate facility. I wonder what's on those recordings. You can bet Eric Holder will keep that a secret. Don't want any October "surprise".

"Secondly, when a terror attack happens against the US or any western country for that matter. What happens ?? Every crack pot terror organisation claims they did it."

Name the terrorist organizations that claimed credit for the attempt to kidnap the US Ambassador that they bungled and killed the intended abductee.

"Thirdly, unless you are a complete and utter dickhead, if you had a hot lead on a case do you every see the police announce this on the TV before they act on it?"

... and that explains why the Force Recon Marines who can be armed and ready to deploy 10 minutes after you wake them weren't sent from Sigonella, Italy, where they had been moved to for an event just like this.
Note to Obama (or, whomever is in charge in the White House): Benghazi Consulate Could Have Used Marines With Bayonets.

"take lessons from Israel. Someone bombs them, you see it on tv but apart from the announcement condeming the attack thats it!!! Next day on the news Israeli jets just bombed the crap out of some terrorist hide out. No warnings, no nothing. So they don't give publicity to any terror organisation because it defeats the purpose and only motivates them to do more attacks."

We know wher ethe facility is in eastern Libya where Al Qaeda trained for the mission to kidnap the US Ambassador that they botched and killed their intended target for abduction. So, I have just one question about that:
Why hasn't Obama taken a lesson from Israel and bombed that Al Qaeda facility to smithereens?

But, the most important question about what happened after Al Qaeda killed Stevens and 3 other Americans in their attempt to kidnap him is:

It obviously wasn't Obama.
Tell us who's actually in charge in the White House.

... well, homeo?
All Speculation. National Security, safety of members of our armed forces, etc. Dust off yer crystal ball

It JUST happened wrote:
Liberals talk about what Romney allegedly said in high school when this all coincidentally JUST HAPPENED:

In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in homosexual activities and cocaine-snorting in the back of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair, who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young, who JUST HAPPENED to be the gay choir director of Obama’s Chicago church and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama, and Young JUST HAPPENED to be murdered on December 23, 2007, just weeks after Larry Bland, another gay member of the church, JUST HAPPENED to be murdered, and both murders JUST HAPPENED to have never been solved. In 2008 Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and JUST HAPPENED to be arrested immediately after the event, based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.

In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid Khalidi, who JUST HAPPENED to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights, and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas JUST HAPPENED to have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona, and JUST HAPPENED to have used them as occasional baby-sitters. Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event, which William Ayers JUST HAPPENED to also attend, and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the Arab American Action Network, to which Obama JUST HAPPENED to have funneled cash while serving on the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers, and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot secure a return of their land, Israel “will never see a day of peace,” and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children’s dance whose performances JUST HAPPENED to include simulated beheadings with fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags, and Obama allegedly told the audience that “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” and there has been “genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis,” and the Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to refuse to make it public.

In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate, front-runner Blair Hull JUST HAPPENED to be forced out of the race after David Axelrod JUST HAPPENED to manage to get Hull’s sealed divorce records unsealed, which JUST HAPPENED to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could face popular Republican Jack Ryan, whose sealed child custody records from his divorce JUST HAPPENED to become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race, which JUST HAPPENED to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he JUST HAPPENED to decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.

It all JUST HAPPENED, but let's talk about important stuff like why Romney drove with a dog in a pet crate on top of his car. Or how Paul Ryan's hair makes him look like Eddie Munster. Americans have a right to know.
Really? Really?!? Love to see where you dug this B.S. up from.

Your side was in office when this recession took off. So take credit for the 23 million out of work.

As for the thousands of GOP wealthy who have fled the country, they're off to set up their version of a Nazi utopia in some South American country.

I don't think that McCain would have looked at military action as a first option and I think this country would be much better off if McCain would have won the 2000 election. I think his choice of Palin as his running mate in 2008 was a disaster for this country.
More liberal cliches from Cher...

The Kenyan called Sarah Palin a pig signaling the start of full scale Soros paid propaganda campaign of personal destruction and misogyny.

Sarah Palin is a woman of accomplishments and traditional values. It is not Palin's fault that McCain lost.

America is no longer fooled by the Soros paid Kenyan smear machine.

Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada
By Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Reader Supported News
01 March 11
As America's middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades - against various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News - fans of enlightenment, democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of the Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada's right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.
Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast ... any false or misleading news." The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom.
Canada nails Fox for the liars they are.

You can't fool the Cnucks, Freddy Boy.

Nate Silver looks at the polling average in Ohio -- made up of roughly a dozen polling firms who have surveyed the state over the past 10 days -- and notes it shows President Obama with a 2.4 percentage point lead over Mitt Romney.

"There are no precedents in the database for a candidate losing with a two- or three-point lead in a state when the polling volume was that rich... It is misinformed to refer to Ohio as a toss-up. Mr. Obama is the favorite there, and because of Ohio's central position in the Electoral College, he is therefore the overall favorite in the election."

Ohio is not a Toss up.

<quoted text>From your lips to god's ear--would it be too just if Jane and fred were washed out to sea while seeking the homeless to harass? "The Romney Loopholes: He's No Patriot
Posted by Jill W Klausen 5pc on October 09, 2012 Flag
While no one likes paying taxes, and while we all avail ourselves of the reasonable exclusions and write-offs allowed by law to lower our personal tax burdenswhich, for average Americans, have been instituted as a means toward providing sufficient income after taxes for a family to survive onno true patriot goes to the kind of extremes Mitt Romney has gone to, to hide income from the People of the United States of America, and deny us the ability to operate our country safely and securely.
Mitt Romney is telling us he built his fortune by re-organizing failing businesses; that's a lie.
Mitt Romney built his fortune by engaging in complex financial manipulations that no ordinary American citizen has access to, so that he could cheat the People out of tens, or even hundreds, of millions of dollars of revenues that could have:
Educated students.
Repaired failing bridges.
Improved aging and inadequate infrastructure.
Found cures for deadly diseases.
Protected us from terrorist attacks.
Fed hungry children.
Provided medical care for the elderly.
And much, much more.
But Mitt Romney chose self over patriotic responsibility to country. Mitt Romney chose the sneaky and manipulative path over the just and the righteous path.
Mitt Romney deceptively (and possibly illegally) "called" his management fees "delayed profits" so he could get away with paying the capital gains tax rate of 15 percent instead of the ordinary income rate of 35 percent.
He also sat on the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Marriott International when they claimed fictional losses to avoid paying legally-due taxes, in what were called "Son of Boss" schemes.
Son of Boss and its related shelters represented perhaps the largest tax avoidance scheme in history, costing the U.S. many billions in lost corporate tax revenues. In response, the government initiated legal challenges that resulted in complete disallowance of the losses claimed by Marriott and other corporations....
In his key role as chairman of the Marriott board's audit committee, Romney approved the firm's reporting of fictional tax losses exceeding $70 million generated by its Son of Boss transaction.
His endorsement of this stratagem provides insight into Romney's professional ethics and attitude toward tax compliance obligations."
That makes Romney a CHEAT!
Stand up for America; Stand up for the elimination of the Romney loopholes. Stand with President Obama on November 6th." ...
It's incredible to the rapepublicans, but very credible to me, Mitt
is a crafty swindler, it's in his blood, that's all he thinks of every single minute, how to make money.
Did I just hear him say on the news "Of course I wouldn't shut down FEMA?" LOL! Oh my word, he's such a liar! He salivates at getting ahold of federal money to divert into his and his friends pockets.

I think military service experience can be beneficial for a commander in chief, but I do not think its mandatory or preferential. In the case of McCain, I felt that he looked at everything militarily and would have made the choice for military action before anything else, he still jumps the gun and salivates at the thought of war.
Not everyone is cut out for it.

You say military experience can be beneficial but NOT preferential.
Do you realize how stupid what you just said is?

You then proceed yo say that someone who was a POW salivates at the thought of a war?

McCain experienced episodes of torture, and refused an out-of-sequence early repatriation offer. His war wounds left him with lifelong physical limitations.

You are the Poster Child for stupidity, lily, and an example of voters responsible for why we have an idiot for president, who just left people to die in Libya, then lied about it.

Obama has no experience in anything except for politics. Based on the results of Obama and his OJT experience, his four years have not helped him, or us.

Has anyone ever told you you lack common sense?
