Campaign Insider Book Argues Mitt Romney Lost Because Of Benghazi

Much of the book involves the a behind-the-scenes narrative of the Romney campaign on September 11, 2012, when the Cairo embassy came under attack and four Americans were killed in Benghazi. Chen, Stevens and Richard Williamson, a former Bush and Reagan foreign policy official who Schoenfeld writes was a “doer not a thinker,” authored a statement, which was never circulated to foreign policy experts who would have spotted its errors.

The statement got major facts wrong, and used a national tragedy, the death of the Libyan ambassador and two other citizens, as a launching point for a tangential political attack. Pointing to a disavowed U.S. embassy statement from Cairo, which condemned an offensive video that had inflamed regional tensions, Romney blamed the Obama administration for “sympathizing with those who waged the attacks” as Americans were being killed in Benghazi.“The Romney campaign’s statement of September 11, 2012 had left the candidate naked, embarrassed, and disarmed,” Schoenfeld writes. He notes that Romney “dressed down his top advisers” on September 12th following the botched statement.

Other former Romney aides say the premise of the book is flawed.“It’s eight months after the attack and the whole Republican world has been banging on Benghazi trying to capture the imagination,” responded one senior Romney aide, who asked for anonymity.“How’s that working? You can’t make the campaign about something people don’t want the campaign to be about.”

Apparently, Obama met with two officials around 11 p.m., told them to do whatever they could and went to bed to get his beauty rest for a big fundraiser the next day.
There has been no other testimony or released information stating otherwise.
So going to bed at five in the afternoon makes total sense to you? Oh, right, you're defending dumb carol--of course it makes sense to Batty Loo and the Ilk.

Actually, he was notified of an attack in progress an hour earlier at around 10 p.m.- attack time.

Then the meeting, a satisfying dinner, a relaxing evening with his family and then off to bed.

Apparently.

You should have seen the tap dancing going on in the press conference by Carney this afternoon. My goodness! He put the best River Dancer on the planet to shame!
The press - kudos to them - are hammering him about a breaking ABC report that the WH changed the talking points about Benghazi 5 times!
ABC, mind you! That can't be good news when the cheerleaders boo the quarterback.
Poor Carney is dancing as hard as he can and they still won't let him take a breather.
They're also hammering him on the IRS going after conservatives.
If the media lets this administration off the hook that easily after what is known now, they are truly the propagandists I always believed they were.
ABC now gets to be called true journalists.
i can't find one thing in that post that can't relate back to Bush.

as a FOXbot, you have no choice but to be a hypocrite.

He had a big day the next day. After learning of a terrorist attack on 9/11, he needed his rest for the fundraiser. Probably took a lot out of him.

Here it is."...as part of the Republican majority that has controlled the House the last two years, Mr. Issa joined in cutting nearly a half-billion dollars from the State Department’s two main security accounts. One covers things like security staffing, including local guards, armored vehicles and security technology; the other, embassy construction and upgrades. In 2011 and 2012, President Obama sought a total of $5 billion, and the House approved $4.5 billion. In 2009, Mr. Issa voted for an amendment that would have cut nearly 300 diplomatic security positions. And the draconian budgets proposed by Mitt Romney’s running mate, Representative Paul Ryan, would cut foreign affairs spending by 10 percent in 2013 and even more in 2016.

Damn right I collect my Social Security benefit. I have paid in for more than 50 years, still do. Damn right I use Medicare, again I have paid in for umpteen years. I also purchase supplemental health insurance. If Social Security and Medicare were unavailable to me my life style would change not a bit.
You are right Social Security and Medicare are socialist programs, programs that one must pay into, your kind of program, a benevolent government looking after you. In your case it is a good thing, you need all the help you can get.
One more time you prove your self to be a liar. I do not piss and moan about benefits going to HARD working folks who require additional help, I piss and moan about the LAZY who do not work and expect to be taken care of.
"nutsucker" I will respond to your bullshit however I please, if another poster points out your idiocy I may agree with him. I hope you continue to post, I enjoy reading posts from others the laugh at you. You know what I seldom see? A poster who agrees with you.
Peace

So, you have your hand out.

Funnier than sh*t.

Medicare is NOT like Social Security, dumbass. You get medicare regardless of the amount you pay into it.

When a real act of war on women is perpetrated by Ariel Castro, a deranged democrat, in the manner that even the most zealous democrat strategist couldn't have dreamed up

In today's culture of violence, the identity of a perpetrator is a political issue, especially when a crime is committed by a deranged liberal. According to the Daily News, "What the neighbors saw was terrifying and dehumanizing: Naked women on dog leashes, crawling in the dirt in Ariel Castros backyard a deranged liberal. A lady clutching an infant and pounding on a window for help."

In their worst nightmares -- involving abduction, imprisonment, rape, torture, malnutrition, beatings while pregnant, and killing babies -- then only do democrats think the party affiliation is not relevant.
