Apparently this was put together by a San Francisco ad team that believes Romney will kill the planet or something. It’s a horrible song and it’s the left using kids that have no idea what they are really promoting to push their leftist agenda.

<quoted text>SAN CLEMENTE, CALIF.—For most of her 100 years, Minka Disbrow tried to find out what became of the precious baby girl she gave up for adoption after being raped as a teen.
She hoped, but never imagined, she’d see her Betty Jane again.
The cruel act of violence bore in Disbrow an enduring love for the child. She kept a black and white photograph of the baby bundled in blankets and tucked inside a basket.
It was the last she saw of the girl — until the phone rang in her California apartment in 2006 with the voice of an Alabama man and a story she could have only dreamed.

From the comments:

What I choose not to judge is someone's motivations for having an abortion. It is very easy to dismiss the reasons as "oh, well, she just didn't want the kid" or "it was just inconvenient for her to be pregnant." But the reasons might not always be that simple and I choose not to judge until I have learned all the facts. But I support legalized choice because the alternative is to reduce women to the status of "property" once they become pregnant. The fact of the matter is that, regardless of the law, desperate women will always find ways to end their pregnancies and if we make abortion illegal, then some of these women will die in back alley butcheries. Did you think of that? I don't think I will ever fathom the conservative psyche, which puts the life of a potential human being before the life of a breathing, living, thinking human being. Especially when many of these conservatives cry foul whenever measures are put in place (such as socialized healthcare, daycare etc.) that might actually encourage more women to keep their babies. Until the anti-choice movement shows as much concern for the "born" as they do for the "unborn", I think you will still remain a minority opinion.

Terms "Left" and "Right": A little Bible study

Remember what Jesus said:'Goats on the left,
sheep on the right'.

To Peter,'if you want to catch fish do it from the
right side of the boat. They did and filled the boat.

Origins of Left and Right...I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left”.

By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.

Can't get any simpler than that.

What apology tour?
Which fact checker would you like? Politifact? FactCheck? American Conservative? This is the internet. Where truncated quotes can fact checked for full context.
But I agree with the rest of that paragraph. The second wanders into opinion, which I care not to take as the gospel until we know the full story.
What Happened in Benghazi
Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”
Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking.

We're talking about the Apology Tour Obama made when he went around the world insulting the United States.
It couldn't have been more of an Apology Tour if Obama was holding a sign saying "I'm sorry" in one hand, and a tin cup in the other.

I'm going to ask the same question the Americans dying in Benghazi asked ... and was recorded for us to listen to today:
Where's the Spectre?(That's the AC-130 gunship deployed in Libya for this exact reason.)
Why was the Spectre not deployed to the fight?
The Spectre was there for this exact reason.
The Force Recon Marines in Sigonella were there for this exact reason.
Why weren't they put into the fight?
So, you wanted to fly around a city & pound it with gunfire.

Just shoot the one's wearing the baseball caps with "terrorist" on the bill.

I realize that a revisionist historian & military expert like yourself thinks they know more than the military commanders.

I love how you have a fit because of the death of 4 Americans due to attacks from terrorists yet defend these same terrorists. You prefer to allow these people to continue to act against the US until we can arrest therm & hold therm for trial.
There is little difference between a US citizen hiding in Yemen directing attacks against US citizens & a sniper in a clock tower. The sniper is taken out by SWAT.
But hey, a real law enforcement person would know this.
The terrorists should have been taken out by the AC-130 Spectre that someone in the White House ordered to stay away.

From what I have seen about President Obama and the First Lady; they are very caring and compassionate people who care deeply for veterans and the families of the deceased.

O Pulllleeeezzzzee!

Nothing but talk AFTER his display of incompetence or dissociative disorder.

So, what does he want? A medal? Another Nobel Peace Prize for admitting ( after he had no choice ), that he was ultimately responsible. Besides, better he should have said:
"I am ultimately responsible for being nonresponsive which led to the four Americans who were killed".

THAT would have been a more accurate and honest statement.

There is NU-THING that he can say that can walk back the anger I and so many other Americans feel toward him regarding this tragedy that DID NOT have to ocurr. NU-THING.

And the more I discuss it, the more disdain and contempt I feel for him.
So, I am going to stop discussing it now.

Now repeat your mantra regarding Republicans and Healthcare:

"Let Them Die" with a revised concept directed at The Benghazi Tragedy.

President Barack Obama said for the first time on Tuesday that he ultimately was responsible for the safety of four Americans who were killed in Libya last month, but denounced as "offensive" Republican charges that the White House initially resisted labeling the incident a terrorist attack.
The suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our U.N. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own, governor, is offensive," Mr. Obama said. "That's not what we do."
The debate followed interviews given Monday by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, where she defended the White House's actions in Libya and said the State Department was in charge of security at the consulate in Benghazi.
However, Mr. Obama said: "I'm the president. And I'm always responsible

A natural disaster is a good time to reflect on what we need to do to avoid an unnatural disaster. Right now, that’s clearer than ever—don’t allow Mitt Romney to become president. When asked about FEMA in the primary debates, Mitt said responsibility for disaster relief should be foisted onto the states. How would you like to be in a life threatening situation, and be depending on Rick Scott or Jan Brewer for help? Evidently Mitt was concerned that wasn’t crazy enough for base, because he added “And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.” Got that? If you’re flooded, call Goldman Sachs! Mitt wants for-profit disaster relief! Mitt, there are already private-sector people taking part in disaster relief—those slime-balls who do things like sell bottled water for $10 a bottle. Mitt wants that on a corporate scale

Why do you think he won't reveal them?
I think it's because he feels (knows) the democrats will use his wealth against him, and even if there is no impropriety, they will pretend there is. I think it would be used in the class warfare the president is fostering. "He's got so much more than me...no fair."

I think the opposing party can't find any real dirt on him and want to manufacture a problem. If he has ONE subtraction or addition that is a few cents off, they would scream to the rafters that it was a coverup.

That's why I think he won't release them...he could be squeaky clean but those forms are so complicated, someone could convince a low-info voter there was something nefarious going on with them.

Now, why do you think Obama won't release a non-threatening thing such as his school records and admission forms, especially in the face of so much being offered to the charity of his choice?

I love the way you righties re-write history & leave the good bits out. It was Reagan who gave support to the Taliban, infact he invited their leaders to the whitehouse. He was the one who created Bin Laden NOT Clinton. As Bin Laden was supporting the Taliban at the time and taking US arms & weapons to fight the soviets via the CIA.

The next biggest myth you righties come up with is Clinton's missed opportunity to get Bin Laden. But what you fail to include in your Glen Beck re-write of history. Clinton sought a confirmation from the FBI that Bin Laden was behind the attacks on US interests and the FBI would NOT confirm that for him. So he did not procede with the opportunity to take him out.

As for the Iraq sanctions this was a UNITED NATIONS effort, not the US as they would be totally useless if it was only the US sanctions. So another re-write of history. There was NO action that Clinton took to incite Muslim resentment. This started WAY back in the early 50's when US & English rule dominated the middle east by installing puppet governments or propping up dictators all in aid of commercial interests. Nothing to do with any high moral ground it was powerful Governments imposing their will on another country for Oil companies. That is where the resentment came from which was anti western not just the US, because the English, French were also heavily involved. So basically it comes down to this, the ONLY things you right wing nut jobs can pin on any Democratic president other than inheriting Wars when coming into office is their womanising. That's it! No Watergates, NO Drugs for Arms deals, NO Stockmarket collapses, etc etc. These all occur under a Republican's watch.

America remembers Republicans in power, thats why Obama will get another term.
