Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Conservatives think the president deliberately ordered military support to “stand down” during the attack on the consulate in Benghazi.

Yep. That’s right. He told the military and CIA to “stand down” and intentionally allowed four Americans to be killed by evil-doers — obviously because the president is insane and wouldn’t have anything to lose by giving such an order. This president is clearly terrified of attacking and killing terrorists — just ask Bin Laden, Al-Awlaki and countless other dead terrorists in Afpak and Yemen.

The fact of the matter is, according to an NSC spokesman, the president didn’t give that order, nor did anyone in the White House. Secretary Panetta, General Ham and General Dempsey delayed further military intervention because it was unclear what was happening during the attack.

Obama did not deny requests for help in Benghazi

All of this “Benghazi Gate” talk is interesting coming from a group of conservatives who for eight years insisted that it was unpatriotic to undermine the commander-in-chief while troops were in harm’s way.

Speaking of those eight years, what about embassy and consulate security under the great protectors Bush and Cheney?

June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls’ school instead.

September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

Shows what a weak smear campaign this really is. Remember, Mitt Romney tried to capitalize on the deadly attack in September, and it backfired. He tried again during the second debate, and was left looking ridiculous. By last week, the Republicans' entire line of criticism against the administration had begun to unravel, and in the third presidential candidate debate, Romney didn't even bother to go after Obama on this.

Keep going Republicans, you're doing great!!

Rise in Disability Claims Is Not New, and Both Parties Are to Blame

The underlying culprit may surprise hardened critics of the Obama administration: to wit, a liberalization of eligibility criteria that occurred during the Reagan administration.

America seethes

WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Benghazi is not about politics, it’s about the truth.“Nearly seven weeks have passed since the attacks, and Americans are still forced to rely on document leaks and reporters with good sources for answers as to who owns the failure in Libya. Why isn’t Obama’s administration producing the answers?”

The fact that they’re not pretty much tells us what those answers must be..

Obama Holds Advantage Heading Into Final Week

An Associated Press analysis finds President Obama "is poised to eke out a victory in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to win re-election, having beaten back Republican Mitt Romney's attempts to convert momentum from the debates into support in all-important Ohio."

"While in a tight race with Obama for the popular vote, Romney continues to have fewer state-by-state paths than Obama to reach 270. Without Ohio's 18 electoral votes, Romney would need last-minute victories in nearly all the remaining up-for-grabs states and manage to pick off key states now leaning Obama's way, such as Iowa or Wisconsin."

It amazes me how little you rapepublicans know about your own candidate, don't you listen to what he says? Or, is it that you'll just vote for the ken doll, doesn't matter?

During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked, in the context of the Joplin disaster and FEMA's cash crunch, whether the agency should be shuttered so that states can individually take over responsibility for disaster response.

"Absolutely," he said. "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?"

"Including disaster relief, though?" debate moderator John King asked Romney.

"We cannot -- we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids," Romney replied. "It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off. It makes no sense at all."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/28/mitt...

(note in the video that he says; federal dollars should go into the private sector; you know what that means don't you? He'd allocate federal dollars to private contractors to make a profit; that's the Romney way. Remember when he said "I know where the big money is, it's in Washington, and, I know how to get it"
That was for the Olympics; that he claims "he" saved.!!What a crook)

Idiot propaganda.

Ok. Let's pretend it's the day after 9/11. You're the president. What do you do?
Do you:

Surrender to the jihad?

Or, do you do the Bill Clinton thing and just lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?

Or, do you accept that they started a war with the United States and fight them?

If you choose to fight them, where do you fight them?

Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the ecact same enemy as the Soviets? And, what idiot would expect something different than what the Soviets experienced?

Bush did it differently. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
Mission accomplished.)))

By the way, you need an education on what the conditions were prior to 9/11/2001. Search "Clinton CIA human rights purge" to discover how Clinton gutted the CIA.
Search "UN oil for food Saddam" to learn how Saddam Hussein stole the money from the UN's oil-for-food scam to rebuild his war machine.
Search "Valeerie Plame Iraq WMD" to learn how Valerie Plame, outed CIA employee, and wife of whistleblower Joseph Wilson, was not, as various right-wing sources have suggested, a paper-pushing desk jockey who perhaps wasn’t even involved in covert operations. They were lying.

Valerie Plame, a career undercover officer, was the Director of Operations for the CIA’s Joint Task Force on Iraq.
That's who Bill Clinton replaced all the CIA operatives that defeated the KGB and Soviet Union and won the Cold War with.
That's who's responsible for all of the US-generated intelligence on WMDs in Iraq. That's why the US didn't even have an operating foreign intelligence capability when Bush took office.
The other intelligence used came from France and Russia, mostly. They were rebuilding Saddam's war machine and being paid with money Saddam was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam. So, they fed the United States the intel that would maintain the UN sanctions and make necessary the UN's oil-for-food scam paying for all the weapons systems and hardened bunkers they were building for Saddam Hussein.

And, lo, and behold, you're one of the idiots and imbeciles suggesting we do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soveits, while we ignore Saddam and his rebuilt war machine in our rear.
An idiot knows that when the US left the Arabian Peninsula, Saddam was going to try to take the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula again.

Wherever US forces went, the Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us. The only option we had was to choose where.

Bush got it right.

Today, Obama is tasked with sabotaging the democratic government established in Iraq by Bush, as well as the Karzai government in Afghanistan.
He's well on his way to accomplishing those goals.

WTF is Obama hiding or in other words, what the MSM won't talk about.

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.

It all JUST HAPPENED.

The Mitt Romney campaign, still attempting to turn the politics of the auto bailout in its favor, is out with a new television ad that dramatically bends both historical record and current news to fit its narrative.
The ad, which was not announced by the campaign, makes no direct claim that can be called a lie. But that's primarily because it's so clever with its wording.
For starters, the ad's narrator says that President Barack Obama "took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy." That's true. But that was also the plan that Romney prescribed at the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009. The difference is that Obama supported a bridge loan from the government to help the auto companies go through bankruptcy, while Romney wanted the private sector to pick up the tab. But as basically every principal involved in rescuing the auto industry said at the time, there was no money available from the private sector during the height of the recession. When Dan Akerson, CEO and chairman of General Motors since September 2010, was asked what would have happened had Romney's plan been followed, he responded that GM "would have been in bankruptcy for years and I think you could have written off this company, this industry and this country."
The Romney ad also cites his endorsement from the Detroit News without noting that that same endorsement accused him of "wrong-headedness on the auto bailout."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/28/mitt...
Let's get to the critical issue today.
WHO told Susan Rice what to say over all the television networks and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who's really in charge in the White House?

That will also be the person who ordered the Americans in Benghazi to be hung out to dry.
The empty chair didn't do anything. They probably didn't even wake him up.

Oh, a very "secrue" location eh? Where are your "recorcds"?

Here's your candidate, laying out plans to steal federal dollars:

A Romney official reaffirmed the former governor's position Sunday evening in an email.

"Gov. Romney wants to ensure states, who are the first responders and are in the best position to aid impacted individuals and communities, have the resources and assistance they need to cope with natural disasters," the Romney official said.

UPDATE II Monday, 9:10 a.m.--

The Washington Post's Greg Sargent adds: "There’s another nugget here worth highlighting, though. In that appearance, Romney also suggested it would be 'even better' to send any and all responsibilities of the federal government 'to the private sector,' disaster response included. So: Romney essentially favored privatizing disaster response."
