Barack Obama, our next President

Romney refuses to answer reporters questions about his opinion of FEMA. This could hurt his chances in Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina.

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???
Anything that starts with the phrase "FOX News has learned ...." is flagged as spam on my computer.

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.
LOL, the guy doesn't even drink beer and you want to paint him as a drug lord? Obama spent years in the hood in Chicago, he is far more acquainted with the drug culture.

Last week, Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock argued in a debate that women who have been raped should not have access to abortion services because their pregnancies are a “gift from god.” As a survivor of childhood sexual violence, I disagree with him completely.

My name is Dawn Hill. Though I am old now, there was a time when I was young and carefree as you perhaps are now or can remember being in your childhood. Childhood should be a happy and carefree time for all our children, but my mother found her new husband, my stepfather, much more important. He forever took the joy away from my life when I was just 11 years old: He began molesting me and continued until he began raping me when I was 13

Mr. Mourdock last night said:“I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen.”

I became pregnant, contrary to the "scientific theories" of many modern Republicans. Not only was the experience loathsome and painful, it was also impossible for me to deal with or talk about because of the times: in the fifties, abortion was illegal. Illegal in the same way the Republican Party platform states it wants to make abortion now by constitutional amendment and just as Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has suggested casually he would “be delighted” to return to.
Please, take a moment to travel back to the fifties with me.

It's readily apparent that Carol is capable of making valid points and backing them up with a source. And you are only capable of responding with some type of insult and the use of the word "hate." Now, who do you truly feel is the more convincing in a discussion?
If only every right wing 'story' about Jarrett was true then I guess I wouldn't be such a sarcastic SOB.

Don't even ask me to discard that which is not true for what is. Goes to overall credibility don't you think?

Just remember when you pull the lever for Romney:
1. Romney will shut down FEMA and redirect taxpayer money to private contractors
2. Romney will sign any and all anti abortion legislation
3. Romney will give a tax cuts to the wealthy that the middle class will pay for; again
4. Romney will dismantle the EPA; making way for further pollution of our fields and streams; will destroy our natural resources drilling for oil
5. Romney will end Medicare and Medicaide and privatize Social Security
6. Romney endorse Mourdock; the Rapepublican who said a rapists c hild is a gift from God
7. Romney will sign the Personhood bill, outlawing contraception, the morning after pill and abortion.
Wow, he's got my vote!

Ah. The man doesn't say what you want to hear so you dismiss him out of hand.

Big surprise. You're just as biased as any other right wing 'winner' on this thread.

What does investing in drug smuggling have to do with drinking beer?
Do you think drug dealers take drugs? It's a business, and one of the biggest ones Peppy. Pres. Bush gave the Taliban $400 million to eradicate the poppy fields. HA! It was seed money! Heroin production has increased something like 200%; drug sales buy the arms; the next biggest business.
It's got nothing to do with drug culture and if you don't realize the magnitude of money that comes from these ventures, then perhaps you should do some reading about it.

News update: Homer lost his basement, but he gained an indoor pool. Flack's windmill has generated enough power to last him a month.

Have not seen any apologies to Flack just yet. He was absolutely correct about the storm.

Your Repubs voting to take money away from Embassy security. You all are nothing but a bunch of Repub Hypocrites.
.
House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.
Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.
