We just had another 9-11, and Obama failed and is still failing. If his mishandling of Benghazi doesn't demonstrate how incompetent and dishonest he is, well then your head will forever be buried in the sand.

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.

CINCINNATI (The Borowitz Report)—The threat of Hurricane Sandy has forced Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign to move its lying efforts from states in the path of the storm to others beyond the hurricane’s reach.

Starting yesterday, the Romney campaign began reallocating lies originally intended for Virginia to other swing states such as Ohio and Wisconsin, the campaign confirmed today.

“An emergency situation like this really tests how good your ground game is,” said campaign manager Matt Rhoades.“Fortunately, we have liars in all fifty states.”

But even as the Romney campaign expressed outward confidence about its ability to maintain an uninterrupted flow of whoppers, some Republicans privately feared that a major power outage could disrupt its ability to lie, distort, and exaggerate in the crucial days ahead.

“If Fox News gets knocked off the air in some of these states, we’re certainly going to be down a quart in terms of falsehoods,” one insider said.

But according to Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan, who has been central to the campaign’s lying efforts, the severe weather is a challenge that “separates the men from the boys.”

“They’re expecting winds of up to seventy miles per hour,” he told reporters.“Fortunately, I can run eighty miles per hour.”

In Indiana, Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock weighed in on the approaching storm:“It says a lot about God that while he’s so busy impregnating women he still somehow finds the time to make a hurricane.”

They probably didn't even wake him. He's not in charge of anything, anyway. He's the empty chair.
Somebody else is making the decisions the naive portion of the population think the president makes.
Well, let's go right to the person who actually makes the decisions Democrats pretend Obama makes.
WHO told Susan Rice what to say in her television blitz and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
That is the person who is actually in charge in the White House.
Tell us who it is.

BEYOND IMPEACHMENT: Obama Treasonous over Benghazi, Roger L. Simon writes.“If the worst aspects of Benghazi are conclusively proven to be true, Benedict Arnold may prove to be a piker in comparison.”
The father of one of the murdered Americans spoke of meeting Obama when his son's casket arrived. He was shocked by how aloof and cold Obama was and said Obama looked past him and refused to look him in the eye.

The Washington Examiner

Charlie Woods, whose son died defending the American personnel killed in Benghazi in the September 11 terrorist attack, said he regards the government officials who refused to send in military assistance to the consulate as “murderers of my son.”

Tyrone Woods disobeyed orders and went to help the consulate under attack.“If in fact those people in the White House were as courageous and had the moral strength that my son Ty had, immediately, within minutes of when they found there was the first attack, they would have given permission, not denied permission, for those AC-130s to have gone up there,” Woods said on Fox News.

“I don’t know much about weapons, but it’s coming out right now that they had laser targets focused on the mortars that were being sent to kill my son and they refused to pull the trigger,” he continued.“They refuse to send those 130s. To me — I’m an attorney, this may not meet the legal test of murder — but to me, that is not only cowardice, but those people who made the decision — and who knew about the decision and lied about it — are murderers of my son.”

Woods also said that he forgives those people, despite their decision to deny assistance.“You know who you are — I totally forgive you, but I hope years from now you change the direction of your life,” he said.

He also faulted the Obama administration for telling him a “pack of lies” about what happened in Benghazi.“[Tyrone] risked his life to be a hero,” Mr. Woods said.“I wish that leadership in the White House had that same level of moral courage and heroism that my son displayed.”

So, today Obama sits in the White House showing concern for the hurricane, Air Force One must be grounded for bad weather or none of his celebrity friends are available.

Benedict Hussein Obama gives aid and comfort to the enemy
Beyond Impeachment: Obama Treasonous over Benghazi
By Roger L Simon
Is it treason when you put your own reelection above the good of your country and the lives of its citizens? If so, Barack Obama committed treason in leaving the four Americans to die in Benghazi.
Our Constitution defines it this way:“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Aid and comfort to the enemy — what is that?
When you ascribe an action to the protest of a video when it is actuality a planned terror attack by Ansar al-Shariah, an established offshoot of al-Qaeda (if that’s not your “enemy,” then who)— and you knew that all along, you watched it live without doing anything, and then you told those who wanted to help to “stand down”? Meanwhile, our government may have been conspiring to arm another offshoot of al-Qaeda in Syria.
How much more treasonous can you get? Benedict Arnold was a piker.
Indeed, the discussion of Benghazi has just begun. And don’t be surprised if the conversation escalates from impeachment to treason very quickly. In fact, if Obama wins reelection you can bet on it. The cries of treason will be unstoppable. Not even if the mainstream media will be able to deny them.
As Pat Caddell noted, those same media lapdogs have muzzled themselves in an unprecedented manner in this matter, but our Canadian friends at least have some semblance of honor left, writing:
It is undoubtedly worse than Obama simply turned his back on cornered American citizens in a foreign land, knowing undoubtedly they would die. But that Barack did so without any compelling reason—except political—is beyond evil. Only a moral monster would have made that decision when it was within his powers to possibly save them with almost no effort of his own.
Canada? Didn't they stop FOX from starting the same infotainer channel we have to suffer with? Something about "false or misleading news" being against the law.

Obama-related coincidences:
Obama JUST HAPPENED to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father JUST HAPPENED to be Thomas Ayers, who JUST HAPPENED to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who JUST HAPPENED to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who JUST HAPPENED to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama JUST HAPPENED to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who JUST HAPPENED to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which JUST HAPPENED to manage public housing in Chicago, which JUST HAPPENED to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which JUST HAPPENED not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually JUST HAPPENED to require demolition.
Valerie Jarrett also JUST HAPPENED to work for the city of Chicago, and JUST HAPPENED to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Obama), who JUST HAPPENED to have worked at the Sidley Austin law firm, where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also JUST HAPPENED to work, and where Barack Obama JUST HAPPENED to get a summer job.
Bernardine Dohrn JUST HAPPENED to be married to William Ayers, with whom she JUST HAPPENED to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco marina, along with Donald Warden, who JUST HAPPENED to change his name to Khalid al-Mansour, and Warden/al-Mansour JUST HAPPENED to be a mentor of Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and al-Mansour JUST HAPPENED to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince, who JUST HAPPENED to donate cash to Harvard, for which Obama JUST HAPPENED to get a critical letter of recommendation from Percy Sutton, who JUST HAPPENED to have been the attorney for Malcolm X, who JUST HAPPENED to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, who JUST HAPPENED to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., who JUST HAPPENED to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.
Obama, Sr. JUST HAPPENED to have his education at the University of Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute, which JUST HAPPENED to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who JUST HAPPENED to be a friend of Malcolm X, who JUST HAPPENED to have been associated with the Nation of Islam, which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan, who just happens to live very close to Obama’s Chicago mansion, which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and Natasha Obama, whose parents just happen not to mind exposing their daughters to bomb-making communists.
After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he JUST HAPPENED to have foreign Muslim roommates, Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation, an organization that JUST HAPPENED to have been founded by Marxist and radical agitator Saul “the Red” Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals, who JUST HAPPENED to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s thesis at Wellesley College, and Obama’s $25,000 salary at IAF JUST HAPPENED to be funded by a grant from the Woods Fund, which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company JUST HAPPENED to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison, whose CEO JUST HAPPENED to be Thomas Ayers, whose son William Ayers JUST HAPPENED to serve on the board of the Woods Fund, along with Obama.

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 Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canada 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. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1987. Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the U.S. airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper's proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right wing network, "Sun TV News" which Canadians call "Fox News North."

Harper, often referred to as "George W. Bush's Mini Me," is known for having mounted a Bush like war on government scientists, data collectors, transparency, and enlightenment in general. He is a wizard of all the familiar tools of demagoguery; false patriotism, bigotry, fear, selfishness and belligerent religiosity.

Harper's attempts to make lying legal on Canadian television is a stark admission that right wing political ideology can only dominate national debate through dishonest propaganda. Since corporate profit-taking is not an attractive vessel for populism, a political party or broadcast network that makes itself the tool of corporate and financial elites must lie to make its agenda popular with the public. In the Unites States, Fox News and talk radio, the sock puppets of billionaires and corporate robber barons have become the masters of propaganda and distortion on the public airwaves. Fox News's notoriously biased and dishonest coverage of the Wisconsin's protests is a prime example of the brand of news coverage Canada has smartly avoided.

And that explains Clinton gutting the CIA with his "human rights purge".
Hey, slow down, Mr. Dealing-Cards-From-the-Bottom- of-the-Deck.

You have a problem with the president removing the criminal element out of the CIA? These are not the kind of people who do us any good. They serve an agenda outside of what is in the nation's interest.

For example, when Director Allen Dulles overthrew the Guatamalan regime in 1954. The president, Jacob Arbenz, was considering not renewing the leases for property used by United Fruit. And take a wild guess who was a major stockholder in United Fruit. John Foster Dulles, Allen's brother.

The CIA was also behind the 34A operations which used unmarked U.S. aircraft and ships to attaack NVA targets. That triggered the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. Read it in "Pentagon Papers". Fletcher Prouty, a USAF specialist in black ops also mentions this in his book, "The Secret Team".

The CIA also carried out a secret war against Nicaragua without Congressional approval.(Iran-Contra)

If ever there was an agency in need of cleaning up, it's the CIA.
And getting rid of criminals who pull theses kinds of deeds had no effect on the activities of legitimate agents.
