Don't tell me. You think Valerie Jarrett is just someone Fox made up. Like a make-believe person. Right?

Do you know anything about Jarrett? Be honest.

Thus, if the administration has a "line"--i.e., a "party line"--then those who side with the administration help to pull it ("tow" it) along.
Wrong.
The phrase "toe the line" is equivalent to "toe the mark," both of which mean to conform to a rule or a standard. The Oxford Dictionary of Word Histories (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 2002; ed. by Glynnis Chantrell) says, "The idiom toe the line from an athletics analogy originated in the early 19th century" (514)."
It would be completely excusable to describe your fawning Liberal stupidity before the Magic Negro as Cowtowing....

The only reference I could find to the CIA base which wasn't even relevant was protecting the names of those who might be in covert operations.
So what does that have to do with Hillary telling one of the victims's families at the funeral they would find who was responsible for "that video"?
"That video" is just the top layer of many layers of the entire coverup controversy. The CIA base had nothing to do with lying to the American public and the timing of an upcoming election.
Hillary is a complicit liar within the Boy Messiah's Benghazi fiasco. Bubba Clinton flocked together with Hillary a long, long time ago. They cling together for anything other than romantic reasons but fail to realize that there are no friends among thieves.

Andrew Cuomo Launches Ad Campaign to Lure Businesses to N.Y.

By Eliana Johnson

May 6, 2013 11:00 AM

New York governor Andrew Cuomo is launching a $140 million ad campaign to lure businesses to the Empire State. The campaign,“New York State Open for Business,” is being funded with money drawn from federal disaster aid received in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and from the Power Authority and Energy Research and Development Authority, according to the New York Times.

Most of the money is being spent on television ads, many of which are being broadcast outside of New York and are intended to draw businesses into the state. One features a voiceover by Robert DeNiro set to Jay Z’s “Empire State of Mind.” DeNiro concedes the troubles that have plagued the state’s economy but argues that it’s on the rebound.“Some said we lost our edge,” he tells viewers.”Well today, there’s a new New York State, one that’s working to attract businesses and create jobs.”

Why America Lost

Temple, TX

#898194 May 6, 2013
Does anyone remember Barack Obama's great promise of the campaign of 2012? He did not make a promise to America nor to Americans. He did not make a promise to fellow politicians. Unlike so many of his promises, he is keeping this one. His promise was to Vladimir Putin of Russia.

What is Obama doing to keep his promise to Putin? Everyone remembers the hot mike incident in 2012 when Barack Obama pleaded with Russian President Dmitri Medvedyev to give him time until the election. After the election, he promised Vladimir Putin, through Medvedyev, he would be more "flexible." Now we have seen this flexibility.

Barack Obama is going to spend almost $700 million dollars of taxpayer money to buy Russian helicopters for the Afghan Air Force. But wait. Just like those TV commercials, this gets better. When Congress passed the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, it had an interesting provision. Congress included, as a part of that law a prohibition on the United States buying helicopters from Rosoboronexport, the Russian manufacturer of the Mi-17 helicopter.

Unfortunately as always happens, when such laws are passed, Congress always gives the Regime an escape hatch. The law stated that Obama could buy from Rosoboronexport if the Secretary of Defense certified it was in the interest of National Security. And of course, the Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, a man committed to destroying the US military immediately signed off on that certification. Where do we even start with this one?

Congress is outraged over this with Senators and Representatives from both parties writing letters about this. Of course, this is Congress' fault for allowing a law to be written with such an escape hatch. More importantly, Americans need to be asking just what the hell the Obama Regime is doing.

Why are we spending $700 million dollars with a Russian arms manufacturer? Why are we even giving the Afghans these helicopters?
If we are going to give them helicopters, which we really shouldn't, then why not give them American made helicopters and put Americans to work? Even if we are going to give the Afghans Russian helicopters, the ones we are giving them are an old Cold War design. There are hundreds of used MI-17 helicopters floating around the world. Why are we paying to give the Afghans brand new helicopters?

In the era of the Sequester, isn't there something better we can do with $700 million? American Medicare cancer patients are being turned away from hospitals and are being denied life saving treatment because of budget cuts. The American military is being gutted to the point of ineffectiveness because of budget cuts. Or consider this. The United States Air Force is grounding 17 squadrons because of $591 million dollars in budget cuts. Our Air Force is not able to do its mission because it lacks the money to fly but we have the money to give Afghanistan $700 million dollars in Russian helicopters.

And this is where Barack Obama thinks we should spend our money? Most people reading this story will not have heard about it. Why?
Because the Obama Propaganda Media is moving in lock step to make sure there is no bad news that might damage Obama's presidency.
This is a story that should damage him and outrage every American.

Ask your Senator or Congressman why this outrage is being allowed and take a moment to share this story with your friends.

The only way we will ever stop Obama is if the American people know what he is doing.

See this for confirmation:

<quoted text>Oh, WTH, Aunt Batty, you can tow you load of crap anywhere you want to...your life choices are gonna' finish you off sooner than later. Oh, and, you lied again, "The segment will be remembered mostly for the response it elicited from the moderator, Candy Crowley. After Romney argued that “it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror,” Obama replied,“Get the transcript.” Crowley, hoping to settle the issue, affirmed,“He did in fact, sir”—that is, Obama did call it a terrorist attack. Sure enough, according to the White House transcript of the president’s Sept. 12 Rose Garden address on the attack, Obama said,“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.”
Anyone that gets his talking points from Faux (like you) is in no way qualified to be president.
I know the whole story, leosnana, and exactly what words were said.

The problem is Obama was still talking about a video two weeks later in front of the UN. How could he have been referring to Benghazi specifically as a terror attack the next day when he was blaming a video and "spontaneous mob protests" because of it two weeks later?

Obama's idea of "acts of terror" is any form of violence. He has a hard time even speaking the word. The new code name is "self-radicalized". Fort Hood is still regarded as "workplace violence". Mob violence in Obama's version of Benghazi was an "act of terror".

Romney should have said that and then looked Obama straight in the eye and asked, "Was Benghazi a coordinated terror attack or mob violence?".

Then we wouldn't be talking about it now. The die would have been cast...the initial lies exposed.

Carol, Carol, Carol.
Romney said that it took Obama 3 days to admit is was a terrorist attack.
The moderator said that was not true.
Obama told him to watch the video.
In some countries, the amount & type of security can be limited by that government.
The Embassy was a lot more secure than the "consulate" in Benghazi. To be secure, mot consulates are constructed with many safety & security features. At that time, we were just renting a building.
Here is an answer given by someone who used to be at numerous consulates.The question was "how many marines are there that typically provide security at consulates?"
his answer: "There are NO "soldiers" located at any US Embassy in the world with a role of security.
There are Marine Security Detachments with the largest being no more than 15 Marine Watch Standers and Detachment Commander. Forget what you've seen in Rules of Engagement or other fictional movies as these Marines are only responsible for the internal protection of Classified Documents and the INTERNAL integrity of the Embassy. They push the button that allows entry within the "skin" of the Embassy and through the last hard door. They do not check bags, they do not monitory the metal detector. This is all handled by a local contracted guard force, The size and capability of the Local Guard Force (LGF) is dependent on the country and the needs of the Embassy. For example when I was in "Country X" the LGF carried what looked like guns but they were only loaded with tear gas cartridges. The rest of the security is provided by host nation military / police forces. You have to understand the embarrassment an incident at a US Embassy would cause to the host nation. They do their best to protect all foreign embassies, not just the US.
The Marines and the LGF is totally administered by and reports to the head Diplomatic Security Officer at any given post. Think Sheriff who has a force of beat cops and detectives.
The only exception to this rule is the US Embassies in Iraq and Afghanistan that have a Quick Reaction Force of US (and other countries belonging to the coalition) on stand-by to provide assistance as required.
Source(s):
7 tours at US Embassies around the globe and now retired."
Did you watch the foreign policy debate? The last one? The opportunity to put Obama directly in the spotlight on Benghazi - why he continued to call it a sponataneous mob attack and blaming a video two weeks afterwards when everyone knew by then it was a terror attack the night it happened - would have cinched the election for Romney.

That's he opporutnity that slipped through his fingers.

It was a no-brainer. Must mean he won by a brainless majority?

Sure wish there was another good reason. But can't think of one right off the bat.

My biggest concern about Romney running again is his genuine niceness. But he actually came on pretty strong. He just played it safe in the last two debates after getting a pretty big edge after the first one and it wasn't the time to play it safe, unfortunately for the country.

But I didn't blame him in the townhall debate when he was blindsided by the moderator. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor too.

Everyone knows Obama can barely say the word terrorist. And everyone knew he blamed a video for weeks afterwards.

The moderator pointed that out, but the damage had already been done by her inappropriate interjection and interference into the debate.

Republicans having to fight to be heard and not be ignored is Obama's plan because he believes he IS entitled to the Presidency which translates to "I should get my way and everyone else must obey."

That's not how it works. Republicans historically reach across the aisle to get as many Democrats on board.

But we're not in Kansas anymore. We're in some weird parallel universe.

We're not perfect but he must have slept through the history lessons about Hitler, Stalin and Mao Tse-Tung. Does he not know what's going on in North Korea and the Middle East as we speak?

He told a college group recently his brand of violence only caused "property damage". He forgot to tell them three of his own people got their heads blown off making a bomb that was meant to go off at a military dance.
