Just turned on Fox nitwit TV for a few minutes while waiting for the local news. Greg whatever is ranting about the federal response..it's FEMA's problem fault etc while talking to the Nassau County REPUBLICAN County Exec. THis from the RW BOBOS who claimed it was the responsibility of the locals in New Orleans to save themselves.

Libya and 9/11 Were Acts of Terror: Obama's Rose Garden Speech 9/12/2012

The simple fact is that Mitt Romney and his campaign were lazy on this one. They read the pre-speech text of the Rose Garden speech. They missed the video and the White House transcript.
Alex Wong runs that team. So Romney blundered, despite that President Obama more than doubles the length of the prepared text speaking extemporaneously.
During the debate last night Mitt shot without aiming. He went off with a bogus claim that ""it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror."
Do not hand this man Romney a shotgun!
Here's the video the Rmoneys missed. President Obama in the Rose Garden with Hillary Clinton standing beside him, on September 12th, 2012, the first day after the fatal attack at Benghazi:
He recounts the sacrifices at Benghazi and 9/11 and what these lives mean to the nation, then:
"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for."
The President addresses explicitly the four deaths at Benghazi.
D'oh !! Here you have Romney emulating Cheney with the bird gun:
And the original model from 1976:
Automated google-spoofing is under way, pumping up right wing flack pieces to protect Romney. The clowns also tell us that Ford was a genius and Dick Cheney wasn't at fault shooting Harry Whittington.
There's more: WaPo fact checking and Mother Jones, plus a full and accurate transcript past le chignon d'orange..."
"Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."

But it didn't cause the attack in Benghazi, that was preplanned.
So was 9/11/01, what's your point, pinhead?
I'll go with Cindoleeza's appraisal of the situation, and leave you with Sean Hannity, who predicted a Romney landslide.

9/11/01 was never blamed on a video, it was called exactly what it was from the beginning-a terrorist attack.

You're real good at trashing other people's children, daughters, husbands, wives ... While knowing NU-THING about them.

Why don't we discuss why your wife of 14 or was it 15 years left your sorry a$$?

Found herself a real man, did she?
One who wasn't a disrespectful, abusive drunk.
And who actually HAD a penis and a brain which BOTH worked.
And not like yours, only getting off while talking about kiddie porn, or watching it, getting off on everything sexually perverse. You're sick.
You're a real impotent asshole.

Only phat ass on here is you. Five feet wide with a 5 inch d*ck.
And, that's IF you could even get a "rise".

Enjoy Size 7 Feet shoved up your ass. Careful, I'm KeRaAzZeeY
Remember? I'd just as soon pull a Lizzie Borden, with the axe, in the hallway, on your dick! AHaHaaHaaaa ... Chop, Chop! AHA!

Cut the crap now. I don't think this thread wants to be bothered with your silly disruptions. Though you may think it cute, you child, I don't, nor care to disrupt this thread any further with such BS.

PS Go smother Debil. Her 10 inch wide gash can suck a man into the abyss. So can her mouth.

You're an illiterate idiot, Archie. Follow the antecedent to its pronoun: "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. TODAY we mourn FOUR MORE AMERICANS who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for THIS TERRIBLE ACT.

But, happy to disappoint, not me.

But, I do like the word skank the Barney poster uses.
And the mockery of it all. I find it, amusing.
The stalking of it all.
But, can't take credit for it.
Keep fantasing about me, phat phool.

I don't know what you're referencing regarding scam, but your post brought an issue to mind.
The City of Baltimore is now going to install listening devices into the cameras already installed on Public Transportation System. While it is being stated it is for safety reasons, if jail and Capitol Punishment have been proven as never being useful as a deterent to crime, why should secretive eavesdropping be? Big Brother on the move.
While every Administration has built upon Big Brother Power, this Administration has been no different. Obama supporter's should not be complaining about The Patriot Act installed by the Bush Administration because Obama has/is expanding those Big Brother policies.
And these "Ears" on Public Transportation are just one more piece of Big Brother legislation.
The Camera and Voice Recorder can now identify a Citizen by Facial and Voice Tone recogniton, known as points of congruency. Nice.
This is only the beginning of the beast with its Eyes and Ears getting set to be positioned on all Public Transportation in all Major Cities.
Is this The Society, The Community, The America we ever invisioned living in?
Baltimore bus passengers now subject to secretive eavesdropping:

"Capitol Punishment," Yawk??? It's not those Eyes and Ears, it's the Head you need to worry about. I'll forgive you the deterrent, supporter's, recognition, and envisioned misspellings if you'll just get back on the meds.
