Hey, he did his job. He showed up in N.J. for a photo op then jetted off to a campaign event. He should be charged with criminal negligence and spend election night in jail!

On the November 2 edition of Fox & Friends, retired Gen. Jack Keane discussed claims that, in the words of guest co-host Eric Bolling, the Obama administration "did not call on the only response team that may have been able to intervene during the attack." Keane responded:

KEANE: Here's what did happen. The national security apparatus, at the request of General Hamm, who's the commander of AFRICOM -- and he's had responsibility from a security aspect to respond to this crisis -- our national mission response force, our most classified force on the highest state of readiness, was alerted and moved from the United States to Sigonella [Naval Air Station in Italy], and they bring with them their own aircraft, their own helicopters and C-17s. Another classified special operations force was moved out of Central Europe to Sigonella as well. The fact of the matter was the CIA base was evacuated prior to their arrival at Sigonella, so they were never employed.

When Bolling claimed that there were military assets in the region, and "we certainly could have had some sort of response into the consulate earlier, sooner than -- boy, I don't even think they've ever even showed up yet," Keane responded:

KEANE: The fact of the matter is, what took place in terms of response to the consulate and response to the CIA base was pretty significant from inside the country, and the reality is the quick response force that came out of the CIA base moved in 24 minutes -- now we know for a fact based on surveillance tapes, from the time the consulate called for help -- and clearly, what those people did is miraculous and certainly courageous in rescuing everybody was still alive. Also, a reaction force was organized from Tripoli and moved to the CIA base, which was under attack for four hours, and also strengthened that CIA base and then was able to safely evacuate them to the airport and back to Tripoli.

Later in the show, Fox host Geraldo Rivera more actively pushed back against the Fox narrative, stating that while there are legitimate questions about what happened before and after the attack, "I take umbrage with what has been said" about the military response. Rivera said that after discussing the issue with Keane, "I am convinced that the military did whatever it could have done under the circumstances. I am similarly convinced that the State Department and the CIA also did, once the attack happened, everything they could."

Bolling said, "So Washington, the State Department, the CIA does nothing, sends no help," Rivera retorted, "That is an obscene lie.... You are a politician looking to make a political point." When Bolling continued to press his narrative, Rivera said again: "You are misleading the American people because you want to make a political point." Rivera added: "We have never in the history of this republic mounted a raid on the circumstance described here ever. We have never done it. The Israelis, when they rescued their people in Entebbe, it took them seven days to mount that operation. This was seven hours."

Rivera went on to say that Charles Woods, father of one of the Navy SEALs killed in the Benghazi attack, "is being led down the primrose path by misinformation that is making it look as if the president of the United States went gambling in Las Vegas when he could have been saving our people in Benghazi, and that's a lie."

Rivera concluded: "When I hear people with no combat experience suggest that,'Oh, my goodness, we saw it in real time,' it makes it sound like bureaucrats scratching their belly and watching our people die, and that's not what happened.... There was no Snoopy AC-130 gunship waiting on the strip in Italy."

All serious electoral map projections show the president winning the election. The best money is on 303 electoral votes.
If the president wins, conservatives will attempt to “unskew” the election results. Count on it.
Are those the same "math nerds" that came up with the current and last unemployment rate numbers just in time for Obama's re-election campaign?

Yeah, sounds real legit.

FEMA has not done any of the following:
restored power to one single home....
restored heat to one single home....
filled one single gasoline tank.....
provided food and clothing to anybody whose home was destroyed....
The application process, more than likely dozens of pages of government mumbo-jumbo, doesn't even start until later today. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE "RED TAPE" OBAMA WAS SUPPOSEDLY GOING TO CUT? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE "PROCESS" OBAMA WAS SUPPOSEDLY GOING TO "SPEED UP?" WHERE THE HELL IS OBAMA ANYWAY? PEOPLE ARE DYING OUT THERE WHILE OBAMA PARTIES!
