Storm hits the northeast, Lord Obama is all over it. Writing checks hard and fast. Rolling those sleeves up. Looking concerned and earnest every time a camera is pointed at him.
Is it too late to film a documentary on "Lord Obama, Storm Hero"?
Guess if you live in a key electoral state, there's nothing Lord Obama won't do for you.
And if you are screaming for help while a consulate burns down around you, you're on your own.

Obamcare is a perforated sail on America's Economic Schooner. I just kept a doctor appointment this afternoon and got an earful from my physician regarding the Boy Messiah. He said that when Obama's sh*t fully hits the fan, he'll be retired but says he feels sorry for the next generation who still thinks they're getting free healthcare. He laughed at Obama's speeches about "Quality" healthcare at lower costs. We shared our disgust with the Jerk-In-Chief as I got blood-draws and my BP checked. Some folks walk through life with their eyes open and see what's going on around them while others have their eyes open while seeing only what they want to see. We all make choices:}

"Documents Back Up Claims of Requests for Greater Security in Benghazi" Oct 19, 2012

"... The documents contain previously unreleased cables from Ambassador Stevens and his staff reflecting concerns about safety in the country.

One signed by Stevens and titled “LIBYA’S FRAGILE SECURITY DETERIORIATES AS TRIBAL RIVALRIES, POWER PLAYS AND EXTREMISM INTENSIFY,” dated June 25, 2012, assess the increase in violence.”From April to June, Libya also witnesses an increase in attacks targeting international organizations and foreign interests,” Stevens wrote, describing attacks on a United Nations official in Benghazi, International Committee for the Red Cross buildings in Benghazi and Misrata, and IED at the mission in Benghazi, and RPG fired at the British Ambassador’s convoy, and an attack on the consulate of Tunisia....

A cable signed by Stevens on the day of his murder, September 11, described a meeting with the Acting Principal Officer of the Supreme Security Council in Benghazi, commander Fawzi Younis, who “expressed growing frustration with police and security forces (who were too weak to keep the country secure)…”

One of the key conversations in the documents begins on February 11, at 5:29 pm, when Shawn Crowley, a foreign service officer at the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, writes:“Apologies for being a broken record, but beginning tomorrow Benghazi will be down to two agents…We have no drivers and new local guard contract employees have no experience driving armored vehicles…”

On February 11, 1:13 pm, Regional Security Officer of the Libyan Embassy Eric Nordstrom emails State Department officials, cc-ing then-Ambassador Gene Cretz, saying he’ll try to send personnel from the Security Support Team to Benghazi....

Norstrom notes that the British have “a 5 person team assigned to just their head of mission, so they have made a commitment to maintain a larger presence in Benghazi than the USG,” the U.S. government....

A March 2012 memo (mistakenly cited as 2011) from the Research & Information Support Center titled “Progress Elusive in Libya,” based on open-source reporting, states that in late December 2011 “reports indicated that al-Qa’ida leadership in Pakistan had sent ‘experienced jihadists to Libya to build a new base of operations in the country. Between May and December 2011, one of these jihadists had recruited 200 fighters in the eastern part of the country...."

Fox News is the most distrusted name in news, according to a January 2011 poll from Public Policy Polling. Thirty-four percent of respondents said Fox News was their least trusted source for news. At the same time, however, 34% of respondents reported that they trust Fox News the most. The network also saw its trust levels increase by three points since 2011. The results coincided with political affiliation, with 68% of Republicans choosing Fox News as their most trusted source. Democrats were split almost evenly between PBS, CNN and ABC.

It appears that Republicans really do tend to trust only Fox, while Democrats tend to trust other networks pretty evenly. That explains a lot. There’s nothing like an open mind to understand that global warming data are real, that creationism is not fact-based, that continuing tax advantages for the richest among us will not help the middle class, that trickle-down has never in fact worked, President Obama was born an American and not a Kenyan, that President Obama is neither a communist nor a Muslim, that Presient Obama’s presidency has not been a failure, etc., etc., regardless of the vile fictional constructions that Fox feeds it faithful and obedient every moment of every day. Fox creates, reports and decides — you repeat. No other network makes such a big production about being “fair and balanced” and “fact-checking” because the whole thing is a scam.

There, I feel better now! And I’m prepared for the onslaught — the wrath of the Teanderthals.

Looks to me as Romney is good at his photo op but doesn't sound like he would help in this disaster. When Bush was President and Katrina hit, it wasn’t because things went bad on the ground, it was because of the Republican philosophy. People should pick themselves up not the government.

have decided that Fox News is too probing and way too
investigative,so we are closing it down.until after the
elections,when I will be a whole lot more flexible just'

Mightier and mellower Fox News
Most trusted, least trusted, most watched: It's now the one-stop source for ultraconservatives, and is dipping into the mainstream.
October 22, 2012


In a survey conducted by North Carolina's Public Policy Polling this year, Fox News Channel earned the paradoxical distinction of being America's most trusted news source and its least trusted news source.

Nielsen data would give Fox a clearer, indisputable title: most watched.

More than 11 million viewers watched last week's second presidential debate from Hofstra University on Fox anchored by Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier. That's more than the audiences for Fox's cable competitors CNN and MSNBC combined.

These numbers aren't just significant. They're seismic. How did Fox News Channel go from a niche player at its founding 16 years ago to being a dominant TV force?

Many media analysts see purity of message as the key to FNC's rise.

But as the channel's ratings continue to mushroom - during this election cycle according to Nielsen it is averaging 65 percent more viewers than CNN and 58 percent more than MSNBC - it's clear Fox is gaining a measure of mainstream appeal.

*you do realize that Tides Company and George Soros have tried to get people not to watch Fox. That is why all you libs use your script to discredit Fox. You are working free of charge for Soros.

On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.

“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said.

Trusted name my a$$, Fox news is seen as a comedy show outside the US it's so out there it is laughable. So as a result every nickle & dime comedy show takes snippets from it to lampoon. You never see that happen with the BBC or any other credible news organisation so how come it happens with Fox. It's only the Bible belt that watches it because they don't know any better.

This would be a "credible" source of course some right wingers blog. If you google Benghazi attack, all you get is right wingers blogs and fox news, the rest of credible news organisations have dealt with this long ago. This is from a bunch of right wing ratbags who deny the state dept funding to have extra security at embassies in the first place. Instead of hanging their head in shame they try and run with this. In the end it makes no difference, Bush didn't prevent 9/11 but it was revealed they could have as the intel was there. So just what do you prove other than be left with egg on your face.
