Barack Obama, our next President

Tell me which of the below are falsehoods:
- 4 American's die at the hands of muslim extremists
- rice spends a week on TV lying, telling all that a video was the cause of atrocity
- president nobama stated those responsible would be brought to justice, months later no indication the administration has a clue as to the perpetrators
- no help was sent to assist those murdered
Fox News reported all of the above. I am sure your gift of BS woo deny that.

Susan Rice was not lying, but rather putting a “softer touch” on the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said Friday.

Chambliss spoke just ahead of a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing at which Gen. David Petraeus is to testify on the attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to the North African nation.

"I'm not saying she lied, I'm just saying she didn't tell [the truth],” Chambliss said on MSNBC.“She put a softer touch on what the real facts were. That's not lying.”

US identifies terrorists who attacked its Benghazi consulate in 2012

Officials in the US say they have identified five men who might be responsible for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012 and there is enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists or killing them with a drone strike. However, there is not enough proof to try them in a US civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

The men remain at large while the FBI gathers evidence. The investigation has been slowed by the reduced US intelligence presence in the region since the 11 September 2012 attacks and the limited ability to assist by Libya's post-revolutionary law enforcement and intelligence agencies, which are still in their infancy since the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime.

The decision not to seize the men militarily underscores Washington's desire to move away from hunting terrorists as enemy combatants and holding them at the military prison in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The preference is towards a process in which most are apprehended and tried by the countries where they are living or arrested by the US with the host country's co-operation, and tried in the US criminal justice system.

A senior Obama administration official, speaking to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said the FBI had identified a number of individuals it believed could have information or may have been involved and was considering options to apprehend them. But taking action in remote eastern Libya would be difficult and America's relationship with Libya had to be considered.

The Libyan embassy did not respond to multiple requests for comment, the AP said.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/may/22/b...

Chaffetz told Fox News that "we had people that were getting killed, we had people who are willing to risk their lives to go save them and somebody told them to stand down."

But it’s clear from Hicks’ testimony that four Americans "getting killed" in Benghazi were already dead when the decision was made to keep the special forces team in Tripoli. The mortar attack was over. A Defense Department drone watched overhead in Benghazi as Libyan militia members helped Americans get to the airport.

Barack Obama simply cannot see the world as it is and, therefore, cannot react to it with the same sense of understanding the rest of us have.
He is a disinterested bystander who believes the ills of the world will disappear if we just think happy thoughts.
A very dangerous combination for a leader in these times.
I'm becoming more and more concerned rather than angry.
The special report on Benghazi tonight left me very distressed.
you would think that a repeat of FOX myths wouldn't be all that distressing at this point.

I want to understand this. the poor don't make enough to pay federal incom taxes. the rich pay most of the federal income taxes in this country.
Here's a visual aid for you l.l.w.
poor = 0% federal income taxes
Rich = 71% federal income taxes
Poor people get something called earned income credit, money in addition to what they made, from the government.
Rich people do not get earned income tax credit.
Where does earned income credit come from? Not the poor, they don't pay federal income tax. Maybe they get it from the 71%?
I'll explain it for you.
Look up the word "income". If you have no income you pay no income tax.
Regressive taxes like sales tax, property tax, license fees, etc. are the taxes the poor pay.

In America’s National Anthem, there is a phrase meant to bolster belief that because of the courage inherent in being American, the people enjoy liberty the rest of the world can only aspire to if they emigrated to the United States of America. The last line of America’s anthem to this nation’s greatness contains maybe the only words many Americans remember of Francis Scott Key’s poem where he asserts America is “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” and it certainly applies to America’s fighting forces, but it is a fallacy in regards to representatives in government. In fact, because of the cowardice of a large majority of politicians, over half the population is witnessing their freedoms being assaulted with extreme prejudice in Congress and Republican-controlled states, and instead of decrying the imposition of religion on women, Democrats dance around the issue out of fear of retribution from evangelical extremists.

Many Americans seem perfectly fine allowing conservative extremists to assault and deny women the right to choose their reproductive health because denying women equal rights is accepted as one of the consequences of living in a nation ruled by patriarchs. However, few Americans would sit idly by if they knew their wives, daughters, sisters, and mothers were the subject of religious extremism rivaling Islamic theocracies and harsh Sharia Law. The women of Texas are under assault by a cabal of evangelical fundamentalists, and despite the heroic action of State Senator Wendy Davis (D), evangelical governor Rick Perry called for another special legislative session for the purpose of passing and enacting legislation from America’s version of Sharia Law.

....America joins the Islamic Republic of Iran as one of the only nations on Earth to empower religion with a controlling voice in driving the direction of the nation, and like Iran, speaking out against the theocracy is a mortal sin and strictly forbidden.

I think the tax rate should be based on how ignorant a person is. The more ignorant the higher the tax. That would put you at the max rate.

Your socialists over in Europe have a 20% VAT (SALES TAX).

We should eliminate income tax and just do that, of course with a greedy leech like you paying the highest rate.

President Barack Obama placed a phone call from Air Force One to the two gay couples who had challenged Proposition 8. He told them,“We’re proud of you guys.” Paul Katami, one of the challengers, invited the president to his wedding to his partner, Jeff Zarrillo.

David Boies, a lawyer who argued against Proposition 8, said that the rulings took the country closer to realizing the Declaration of Independence’s guarantee that all men are created equal.

Watched a special investigative report about Benghazi tonight on Fox.
Being reminded again of the gross incompetency and deliberate lies on the part of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the wake of what must have been unimaginable fear and brutality for four Americans who were abandoned after their distress calls were ignored and their security removed distresses me greatly.
Hillary Clinton does not deserve to hold any office in the government. Her incompetency in the unbelievable timeline of documented events left four Americans dead.
This president does not deserve the office or the title representing our nation and our military. Levers available to him to prevent the deaths of these Americans on 9/11 were not pulled.
Because of Benghazi alone, I pray for the day to come when he is removed from office.
You'll be praying until 2016, when Hillary is elected.

Why does simple logic seem to elude liberals?
We simply cannot afford the costly and expansive undertaking of finding other sources of alternative energy that can keep this nation running as cost-efficiently as our own natural resources when we're already in dire economic straits. Oil, gas and coal are abundant and readily available.
It's like really, really, really wanting a brand new Hummer but having to drive an old but reliable car you already own because you simply can't afford a costly car payment.
Liberals remind of teenagers. Always wanting what they can't have and not having enough wisdom or maturity to understand why they can't have it...because they're not the ones paying for it.
We can't afford not to Carol. Despite what ignorant deniers like you claim, the use of fossil fuels is killing this planet. Richard Muller a professor of physics at UC Berkley whose research was ironically funded by the Koch brothers made this statement after three years of research examining climate data stated;
“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”
You're ignoring the health costs incurred by pollution especially around coal burning power plants which add up to hundreds of billions of dollars a year and directly cause thousands of premature deaths.
Why does someone claiming to be a Christian constantly shill for those that rape and pillage God's creation solely to further line their own bulging pockets?

Pravda Editorial on Obama - America with Obama. Like Russia’s past communist leaders, Americans re-elected him for a second term without so much as a stated economic strategy for success.

“Obama was recently reelected for a second term by an illiterate society, and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya, and Syria. He plans his next war with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.” Pravda writer Xavier Lermer says,“Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.”

He also wrote of Obama,“He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

One of the major takeaways from the series of dramatic political events that occurred in the space of 48 hours this week is quite simply that the Republicans will do anything to win. Almost literally anything. Chicanery and complex scheming in politics isn't anything new (see also House of Cards), but the intensity and frequency -- not to mention the broad-daylight hubris of it all -- by the Republicans this week has been extraordinary to behold.

It's surely symptomatic of the Republican Party's current status on the endangered species list, but that's also what makes the party's collective fealty to far-right bigotry and oppression even more peculiar, given how the policy areas at issue this week have almost exclusively impacted women and minorities.

We were told the party was endeavoring to reach out to the demographic groups that helped doom its electoral chances last November. Clearly not, and it's disintegrated into a predictably failed outreach effort. There was never any doubt that the extremists who occupy the far-right base, as well as the fire-eaters in the conservative entertainment complex, would never allow the party to soften its posture. And so it goes.

Here now are the top six examples of Republican cheating, racism, hypocrisy and general insanity from Tuesday and Wednesday of this week:

6) They contradicted their own opinions on the judicial review role of the Supreme Court from day-to-day.

5) Big government intrusions on reproduction, marriage and election laws are fine and dandy even though the Republicans claim to hate big government.

4) They made wild claims about marriage equality, and how it could lead to bestiality.

3) The Supreme Court's decision to undermine the Voting Right Act brought into renewed focus the Republican Party's transparently obvious racism and, specifically, the conspiracy that exposes it: the rigging of elections by disenfranchising voters.

2) The Republicans intend to hold hostage the Voting Rights Act in order to preserve Jim Crow style Voter ID laws.

1) The Texas Republicans held a vote on SB5, a notoriously misogynistic anti-choice law, after the special session ended, essentially undermining all Senate rules.

That's all... for now. It's an astonishing record of treachery, especially knowing that it was all packed into a 48-hour span. Just two days in the life of the Republican Party -- an outfit that continues to out-do itself with shameful tactics, transparent bigotry and an increasingly discordant message.
