As I recall, the Arabs provoked that war by murdering 3000 Americans in the United States.
... correct me if that is wrong.
And, you're defending the position that Obama shouldn't be involved in any government function he doesn't have profissional experience with?
I suppose managing the Department of Community Organizing takes up all his time.
He's the president. He's the top authority. His responsibility is to make the decisions.
Perhaps, because he doesn't have any experience at anything in his entire life, the best thing is for that chair to be empty.
We're going to introduce some change to that situation very soon.
Romney wins by a landslide.
Fifteen of the nineteen "arabs" that murdered the 3,000 Americans were from Saudi Arabia. So why are you relating the unprovoked Republican invasion of Iraq to 9-11?
Consider yourself corrected.

<quoted text>Think about this for a moment. In addition to Barack O'bama serving on a Board with Bill Ayers, the mother of Obama's most trusted political confidant (Valerie Jarrett) served on a Board with Bill Ayers' father (along with Ayers' wife Bernadine Dohrn). As if that weren't enough, Valerie Jarrett's father-in-law was a close colleague of Barack Obama's Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Valerie Jarrett is undoubtedly a woman of power and influence.
Obama has in-fact said that he makes NO decision without her.
Jarrett is also a far-left subversive radical who's completely obsessed with racial issues... and was never properly vetted by the MSM, let alone anybody in the White House.
And this woman was Van Jones' recruiter, biggest supporter, and cheerleader. And the corruption she was involved with through Habitat Corp and Tony Rezko back in Chi-town is appalling-
Jarrett is linked to a series of shameful real-estate scandals, including projects operated by Rezko and Allison Davis (former boss of Obama). Housing projects developed and/or operated by Davis and Rezko have been manifestly substandard and beset with code violations.
Basically, Obama helped get them public funding for projects purported to be "for the poor"- while these charlatans spent as little as possible building and maintaining them- and Jarrett "managed" and looked the other way for $300K/yr in salary... plus $850K of "deferred income" -according to her own report.
More 'common knowledge' that can't be cited in fear of humorous reprisal.

Lower American coporate taxes and get rid of half the regulatory agencies and companies can make a profit in the US. Otherwise business will go where they can make the best go of it. US is NOT small business friendly under Obama. AND Mitt Romney is not doing it. His tenure with Bain is in the past.

He probably was a recipient of the amnesty, likely only paid 9% taxes. Mitt is a money launderer, may be involved in arms and drug sales.

Who's buying obama's snake oil?

" Two days after introducing what he heralded as the most sweeping ethics rules in American history — ones that would "close the revolving door that lets lobbyists come into government freely" — President Obama waived those rules for his nominee for Deputy Secretary of Defense, William Lynn, who was a registered lobbyist for the defense contractor Raytheon until last Fall."

According to the three (3) State Department e-mails Chris Stevens was accompanied at the Benghazi consulate by four (4) COM (chief of mission) personnel. Data manager Sean Smith died, his body being removed by the small team of rescuers from the CIA annex__that leaves 3 survivors.

Who and where are they???

So now in addition to name-calling and insults your method of convincing us that you are correct includes a LIE also? I HEARD IT MYSELF ON FOX. What on earth is WRONG with you? Can you not make a point HONESTLY without trying to cover up, insult, put-down, twist the facts or LIE? You should be ASHAMED! Have you considered that if you MUST to all that to seem like you are right, you are most likely incredibly, undeniably WRONG?
Way to debate the "superiority" (laughing) of Obama.
Name-calling and insults?

I'm the constant brunt of such which I commonly reply to in nothing more than a sarcastic manner. Ask any of your compatriots.

And I guess I'm a nitwit for thinking that FOX would print the whole interview. What was I thinking eh?

What??? Sensata is booming, I do business with them (nice plant in the DR). Closing one plant only tells me that one plant had problems, my guess is union problems.

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by U.S. officials -- who also told the CIA operators twice to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to "stand down."
Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team 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.
........
According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.
"There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."
U.S. officials argue that there was a period of several hours when the fighting stopped before the mortars were fired at the annex, leading officials to believe the attack was over???
