Barack Obama, our next President

Rightwing propaganda?

The deaths in Benghazi are not a partisan issue. They are an American tragedy.
And a failure of an inept, incompetent Liberal President and Administration who certainly DID "allow" the crisis unfolding before their eyes in real time, to lead to the DEATHS of Four Americans. And then continued to LIE about it.

Yes. I believe the POS stumping as president ...
"Let Them Die" to appease his Muslim Brethren.

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
~Barack HUSSEIN Obama

'Cause he certainly DIDN'T STAND WITH THE AMERICANS trapped in Benghazi when the political winds shift(ed) in an ugly direction AGAINST those AMERICNS.

Obama OWNS these Deaths. And America is repulsed.

Yeah! Talk about "Let Them Die" in a new context.

<quoted text>Sure, as long as they can pay for it. Those of us who need work, once minimum wage and the public school system are abolished, will have to sell our dignity for $2.50 an hour, and be grateful for the 'privilege'- that is if we have any energy left, after working a 100-hour 6-day week to keep bread and eggs on the table, and a roof over our heads...praying every day that we don't get injured or sick.
Romney is clamoring for the chance to bring the feudal system to these shores...while gleefully selling capitalism abroad.
First, you have to actually have some dignity to sell.
And, if you're over 20 years old and still living on minimum wage, you're not worth any more than that.

And it was capitalism that lifted the world out of the relative stone age less than a century ago.
It was Marxist communism that produced the three worst mass murderers in the history of civilization. The imposition of Marxist communism killed more people than all the wars of the previous century around the world combined.

If you're so ignorant that you don't recognize that capitalism created the modern world where the norm is a middle class existence, and changed it from when if you had change in your pocket you were among the wealthiest 10 percent of the people in the world, and you are so ignorant you don't know of the murderous history of Marxism, then I'm confused where you got what you confuse with "dignity". You obviously wouldn't have any dignity, unless complete ignorance is dignified.

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

We’re blaming you!

The ad is the brainchild of Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, of the San Francisco-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners, for their Future Children Project. The Future Children Project states on its website,“Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter. What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?”

Where's the message of hope and a better tomorrow?

We don't know if Mitt gave some money towards that out of his own pocket. Let's see Obama reach in his own pocket and give. Hell, Obama can't seem to stay off of talk shows or tv long enough to give a hoot about giving a donation, he is more worried about winning a second term.

I'm afraid you were right when you said "dumbed down." A large percentage are totally uninformed and make their important political decisions based on a sound bite here or there, or worse yet, don't even realize the importance of voting.

It all started with the decline of educational standards, taking the requirements down to the lowest denominator, rather than bringing as many out of ignorance as possible. Especially regarding history, I fear.

I didn't even LIKE history when I was in school, but I learned enough to be scared to death of socialism and communism. Most kids today just think it's cool to have Che on their shirt because they know they don't like "rules."

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.
Did you see my question to you about abortion? I didn't see an answer yet, and I am interested.

My simplistic take on this article is that it sounds like an apology article to go along with Obama's apology tour. I understand the concept of American not having the right to inflict its will on other countries, just as I understand the concept of this world needing SOMEONE with morals regarding human rights needing to stand for that no matter what. The jihadists would glady go for world domination and take away all rights from all peoples; therefore, someone strong should stand against it. I also see how some American greed and avarice would also affect those interactions.
I didn't even listen to Mitt's statement right after Benghazi. I just felt it was important that if we DO send American ambassadors to other countries, we should also have whatever is necessary to keep them safe available to them at all times, and apparently this administration did not take those precautions, nor as now is apparent, even send help AFTER the attack started. I feel this administration failed in that regard, kn that responsibility to our citizens, and my opinion has nothing to do with Mitt Romney.
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.

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
