President Obama has seen a boost in his job approval ratings in the past week as the nation has dealt with Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath. Meanwhile, Republican challenger Mitt Romney's favorability has hit a rough patch following almost a month of gains.

<quoted text>Obama's plan during his second term is to conspire with the U.N. to bypass the 2nd amendment and ban the private ownership of firearms. Because of the unpopularity of such an idea, he's waiting until his second term to implement this plan. He has many more unpopular plans saved up for his second term.
All lies.

A comment on Romneys profitting from the bailout:

Robme can't wait to get his hands on Medicare and Social Security, load them with debt, extract the money from them and bankrupt them -- leaving us, the taxpayers to pay for it all. This is his only business plan. This is what he does. And there are still people who want to vote for him?

Criticizing Administration Policy Is Legitimate and Absolutely Necessary, Lying About It Isn’t
The main problem with Romney’s intervention Tuesday night and yesterday morning was that his entire criticism of the administration’s response to the attacks was thoroughly dishonest. This wasn’t a matter of having a different, more skeptical interpretation of something that happened. This was a case of accusing the administration of something (i.e., sympathizing with embassy attackers) that it plainly had not done and wasn’t about to do. It would have been perfectly legitimate and even useful for Romney to ask what the administration intended to do next, question what the security arrangements in Benghazi had been, and insist on accountability for any mistakes. Instead of offering anything remotely resembling constructive criticism, Romney immediately launched a false attack intended to link his opponent with people responsible for assaulting U.S. diplomatic missions.
Criticism of administration policy by a presidential challenger and his party is both legitimate and necessary. It’s a shame that Romney chose to abuse that responsibility. He has not only further discredited himself, but he has also made it that much harder to hold the administration accountable for any real mistakes or failures they might have made.

So is there any 'slander' in that post?
So what makes you think an intelligent blogger has more answers than the State Department?

I agree with Steve who posted a comment about the article below it.

"I think the Media has shown it’s in the tank for Obama. The questions are being fired at the wrong individual. Romney isn’t president yet. So why don’t we focus our questions and energy on why this event happened the way it did? Evidence is coming out that these attacked were planned, known about by both American intel and Egypt government. The Tweet came from the Embassy. Perhaps Romney ran with it…He is an earlier rise like all good businessman. Our President skipped his Intel meeting before and after these events. You people need to start ask Obama some real questions for once."

Obama dropped the ball. Plain and simple. Instead of addressing the issue and answering many still unanswered questions and the Media not focusing on getting those answers, Obama has been out campaigning and saying it's under investigation. He and his cheerleaders are hoping it will just go away.

It's not going away. No matter what Romney says or doesn't say.

Two evangelical friends said yesterday "I'm voting for Romney because he's anti abortion and gay marriage"

That's it, in a nutshell. They have no concept of Mitt and his shenanigans, nor do they care that he's a liar. The Christian rightwing votes on abortion and gay marriage. Nothing else.

NOT since Lydia Bennet eloped with Mr. Wickham, not since Anna Karenina ran off with Count Vronsky, has such a hue and cry been heard about purloined affections.

The triangle that flared at the climax, with Chris Christie scampering away from Mitt Romney in the wuthering storm to cling to Barack Obama, the New Jersey governor’s brown eyes looking up trustingly into the president’s brown eyes, added a frisson to a jaundiced, spendthrift race.

In novels and movies, it’s a powerful narrative: the problems of three little people, playing out against a charged backdrop.“Casablanca.”“Gone With the Wind.”“The Year of Living Dangerously.”“Broadcast News.”“L.A. Confidential.”

Christie was unrepentantly swept away by his new pal, the commander in chief, who also likes to wear a jacket with his name and title sewn onto the lapel.

“So, I do pinch myself every day,” Christie said at a news conference in Trenton on Wednesday.“You know, like when I got on Marine One, I’m pinching myself, believe me. Sandy and Bill Christie’s son on Marine One was not exactly what I thought was going to be happening with my life.”

A president who has taken a lot of abuse from Republicans — one refusing to take his urgent calls on the debt deal, one yelling “You lie!” during a State of the Union address, many libeling his religion, race and nationality, all plotting to upend his plans — was finally getting a little G.O.P. love.

It was a jarring sign to Republicans that, despite Romney’s humanlike performance in recent weeks, there is no deep tie, nor real respect, among many of those helping with his campaign, even men considered as running mates. Romney is idolized by his wife and sons, and in his close Mormon circle of friends, but beyond that, there is an intensity vacuum.

In the final days, with Christie cheating on him, Mitt was left with Jeb Bush, who offered the faint praise to CBS News that Romney had been slow to respond to the president’s attack but had finally “found his rhythm.”

Pity poor Jeb Bush, trying to drag another entitled, second-rate scion over the finish line in Florida while stifling his own dreams. He told a crowd that Obama’s “entire strategy is to blame others, starting with my brother, of course.” But his brother is to blame for creating the chaos that swallowed much of Obama’s first term. And for derailing Jeb’s career and blighting the family name. While Jeb was hawking Romney, W. was giving a speech at a confidential Cayman Islands investment conference. He should go check on Mitt’s cash still sunning itself in the Caribbean.

Which is absolutely no different than two far lefties saying they're voting for Obama because he IS pro abortion and pro gay marriage (after he was against it, of course).

So what's your point?

Good morning, Lily.

Right-wing ‘Swift-boat’ smear fizzles
Obama should have been destroyed by now. That was the plan.
He was going to be “Swift-boated” in this election, just like John Kerry was in 2004.
It would be about Benghazi, where on Sept. 11 of this year, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed. This would be the spear point that would fatally wound the Obama campaign.
It would be a classic smear: The Obama administration had delivered a “stand down” order to potential rescuers, and so four Americans had died.
Why would any agency or anybody in the administration do such a thing? It didn’t matter. Wingnuts can always find motives. There are still people who say Bill Clinton murdered Vince Foster. Whole books have been written about that one.
There are legitimate questions to be answered about what happened at Benghazi. There always are questions after such tragedies. Warnings were ignored by the George W. Bush administration before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, after all.
Were warnings ignored in Libya? Hindsight will probably find some.
And Stevens would hardly have ventured to Benghazi with inadequate protection if he thought there were legitimate warnings not to do so.
So a different narrative, a different point of attack, would have to be found for Benghazi.
On Oct. 26, Fox News reported that urgent requests for military backup during the attacks in Benghazi “was denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — 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.”
The CIA and State Department denied it, but “stand down” would become the rallying cry for the far right.
It not only appeared everywhere on social media, but on Friday, as Obama was on his way to a rally at the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio, it “passed small groups of onlookers, including a slightly larger cluster holding signs related to Benghazi, such as:‘We won’t stand down ... Benghazi,’ and,‘What are you hiding?’” according to the White House press pool report.
But Benghazi has proven to be not dynamite, but a firecracker. The October surprise has not turned into a bombshell. Instead, it has bombed.
http://www.suntimes.com/news/otherviews/16111...
David Ignatius, the highly respected columnist and associate editor of the Washington Post, who had been vigorous in demanding more information about Benghazi, wrote online Thursday,“While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, there’s no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.”
That doesn't absolve them of the responsibility for those deaths.

If someone goes out drinking and kills a van full of family, they are still guilty of the deaths. If they leave the scene, it is still an attempt at coverup. and when they go to trial, they are still found guilty and still pay the price. Same difference. They certainly didn't walk into the bar "intending" to kill someone, but it is totally their fault the family is dead because of their choices.
