Obama had nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood coming into power you goddamned liar.
However the Christians in Iraq have been killed and chased out of that country while the government that George W put in power stood by and did nothing.
O'bama didn't ask for Mubarkek step down. You liar. O'bama isn't asking for Asaad to step down? And then Libya-O'bama bombed Qaddafi. And now as we learned -O'bama and Dr. Morsi sent the very same terrorists to Benghazi.
As far as Iraq goes, GW Bush allowed most Iraqi that wanted to get out to come to the USA. The Christians left in Iraq are being protected by the 26,000 contractors with in the 4 bases that GW Bush built and are working for the United States Government.

All right, I think I've read enough to determine that this is our old friend Carol adopting another screen identity so that she can spew the same old lies.
Let's compare your Tea Party with the National Socialist Brown Shirts shall we? The Brown Shirts were outwardly a grassroots movement but in reality were being funded and directed by wealthy industrialists like the Krupp's and Siemens. They scapegoated groups like the Jews, gays and the unions .
The Tea Party, outwardly a grassroots movement is funded by the Koch brothers through Americans for Prosperity which even the Romney campaign described as the "financial engine" of the Tea Party. They also have scapegoats like Muslims and just like the Nazis gays and labor unions.
Who put the Nazis in power in Germany Carol? Ignorant bigots just like you.
Wow, DuPont is a real Sherlock Holmes. He cracked the case of Lois Lane and Carol all by himself. LOL

Has the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the Romney Campaign?

Anti-Muslim activists on the Right have consistently warned that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration. But if their unhinged McCarthyism is to be believed, then Mitt Romney’s campaign has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood as well, as Romney’s campaign has named George Salem, Samah Norquist and David Ramadan “National Co-Chairs of Arab Americans for Romney.”

Pamela Geller labeled George Salem’s Arab American Institute a “nototrious anti-Israel Israel [sic] organization” composed of “Islamic supremacists” and led by a “Jew hater.” She even suggested that the AAI seeks “Jewish annihilation” by backing Mideast peace efforts.

Geller, Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer, William Murray, Andrea and James Lafferty and others sent a letter to Edwin Meese demanding he withdraw his endorsement of Virginia Del. David Ramadan because of his purported ties to Muammar Gadaffi and “radical views,” including his support for the right to build the Park 51 Islamic Community Center. James Lafferty said Ramadan is an “extremist” who should not even “be allowed to continue to live in the United States,” and Geller said he is a “stealth jihadist” and a “Muslim Brotherhood plant.”

Perhaps no chair of Romney’s committee is despised more than Samah Norquist, wife of conservative leader Grover Norquist. Glenn Beck and Jerry Boykin have said that Norquist is a lackey for the Muslim Brotherhood and according to anti-Muslim activists like Gaffney and David Horowitz, Norquist secretly converted to Islam and joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the behest of his wife. Conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell wrote in a report for the American Conservative Union that she is “certain that Mr. Gaffney’s hatred [for Norquist] is further fueled by the fact that Grover is married to a Muslim-American woman (who also has worked for the United States government in very responsible positions, I might add!).”

Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.

But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

First, the head of the investigation overpromises.“This was a targeting of the president’s political enemies, effectively, and lies about it during the election year so that it wasn’t discovered until afterwards,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said in May of the IRS targeting scandal. He later declared President Barack Obama’s press secretary a “paid liar” for stating otherwise.
Next, facts emerge to undermine the investigator’s presuppositions. Documents released by Ways and Means Committee Democrats last week show that the IRS, in addition to targeting tea party groups, also had “Be on the Lookout”(BOLO) lists for groups using descriptors such as “progressive,”“health care legislation,”“medical marijuana,”“paying national debt” and “green energy.”
Finally, evidence surfaces that the investigator stacked the deck. Last Tuesday night, the Hill newspaper quoted a spokesman for Treasury’s inspector general, Russell George, saying the group was asked by Issa “to narrowly focus on tea party organizations.” The inspectors knew there were other terms, but “that was outside the scope of our audit.”
Certainly, something went badly wrong at the IRS that caused groups to be targeted because of ideology. But it’s nothing like the conspiracy Issa cooked up.
The White House deserves some of the blame for letting things get this far; a full release of information by the administration at the outset would have put the controversy to rest quickly.
But the collapse of the Issa-driven scandal has reinforced a growing impression in the capital that ultimately will help Obama: The chairman is full of it.
When I covered President Bill Clinton’s second term, White House officials were delighted to have the eccentric Dan Burton in charge of the House Oversight Committee. He gained prominence by shooting a melon to try to prove that Clinton aide Vince Foster hadn’t killed himself but had been murdered.
Now Issa has fallen to Burtonian levels of credibility. He’s launched a dozen or so probes, but what often begins as a legitimate inquiry turns quickly into a lunge for the Oval Office, missing each time.
Even before the Republican victory in 2010 gave him the chairmanship, Issa announced the discovery of “Obama’s Watergate”— the White House floating an administration job for a Democratic congressman to keep him out of a Senate primary. Issa backed off after learning that the Bush administration had done similar things.
Shortly before the 2010 election, Issa told Rush Limbaugh that Obama “has been one of the most corrupt presidents in modern times.” He later said Obama isn’t “personally corrupt” but his administration is.
Issa then set out to prove it. He led a probe into the failed “Fast and Furious” gun sting by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Issa declared that “it went all the way to the White House,” insisting that the plan was approved “at the highest levels of the Obama appointees,” and that the Justice Department “has blood on their hands.”
The Justice Department inspector general determined that Atty. Gen. Eric Holder didn’t even know about the program until after it was shut down.
After the failure of Solyndra, a government-aided solar company, Issa probed Department of Energy loan guarantees, saying “I want to see when the president and his cronies are picking winners and losers ... that it wasn’t because there were large contributions given to them.”

Holder also told Congress he knew nothing about targeting a Fox News reporter, then it was revealed he signed the warrant:

"Report: Holder approved search warrant labeling reporter as a co-conspirator"

Why such a long post? it's simple...liberals like you will believe anything O'bama and his administration say. Like I said before O'bama was elected the first time. O'bama could be picking off seniors with an AK47 in Downtown Chicago, as they got off the bus, and people like you would say, "Well O'bama really didn't do that." (even though there was a video showing him doing just that.)
